Who will reach SF?

OK, now that the draw is done (...), who will reach SF? I guess:

Blue Group:
Ferrero
Federer

Red Group:
Roddick
Moyá

Re: Who will reach SF?

No clue.... I think it'll totally depend on who's healthy, fresh, and there to win. There could be some surprises for sure.

Well, yes, I agree, obviously it will depend on how healthy are players... but suppousing they are all OK, that's what I say.

Re: Re: Re: Who will reach SF?

Except those two, specifically - the head-to-head is 8-0 collectively in favour of Nalbandian and Agassi, and his record against Ferrero ain't too hot either. I do think it's possible that he can get wins against them for the first time, but having heard about his attitude going into Houston - something along the lines of enjoying himself and not putting too much pressure on himself - I doubt this will be the week he does it.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Who will reach SF?

It's all mental for Federer, If he was to beat both Agassi and Nalbandian it could be a big breakthrough for him. I also think that his attitude is good since he had a similar outlook going into wimbledon and we know the type of tennis he played there. He can beat Ferrero, their last match was a bit of a fluke I think. He has done better against agassi every time they've played and agassi is coming off a long layoff, so I don't really know how he'll play, but I think federer has the game to beat him. Nalbandian is a question mark to even play and if he did, he probably wouldn't be at full health, which may give Federer the edge he needs to win. A lot of people are writing off Federer awfully early just because of the names in his draw.

Re: Who will reach SF?

If theres one guy i wouldnt mind Andre losing to, its roger.
I wouldnt mind Roger over Moya in One Semi
and Andre def. Roddick in another

Then Roger and Andre battle it out, I'll just sit back and relax because i think we all know that Agassi vs Federer will be the prettiest and msot exciting match

Maybe im just biased

Re: Who will reach SF?

I don't think Federer will make it to the SF...he'll have to overcome all of his big hurdles consecutively, all the while apparently not having much confidence at the moment.

Roddick and Moyà
Federer and Ferrero or Agassi, I don't know how much Andre is going to be affected by the lack of matchplay.

Roddick, Coria, Ferrero and Nalbandian (if he's fit, otherwise Agassi). That's an objective pick, my subjective pick would be completely the opposite.

Re: Who will reach SF?

Well, if Federer beats Agassi and Nalbandian, he may as well win the whole thing. I'm not convinced.

I hope: Roddick and Coria
Ferrero and Agassi
