Talking James or Paradorn?

Yay, a finally where I like both players

So who do you guys pick to win?

I'd like James to win, and will be interested to see how he comes off that win against Andre.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I want James to win, it would make his confidence SKYROCKET going into the Open.

Paradorn has already defeated Michel & Jarkko, I don't want him to add another scalp to his list

In truth, I saw Paradorn play today and he was looking very solid. James will have to play very well to defeat him.

Hi TennisHack,

Glad to hear from you that Paradorn played very solid tennis.

Hope he play well against James.

C'mon Paradorn, take home the title.

I hope James. But I have a feeling he'll lose

We found a new place to live where we're taught to grow strong
And strongly sensitive, it always sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty, words and wine amongst the greenery
See how it is


good luck: thomas enqvist and thomas johansson

The first set was kinda "eh", but the last two sets, it was all Paradorn. His serve was cooking, his groundies were really strong, and his crowd support was amazing

But I still have to say, "Go James! Please don't choke!"

Head-to-Head: Blake leads Srichaphan 2-0

2001 Bermuda, CH, Clay, R32: Blake 6-1, 6-0
2000 Binghamton, CH, Hard, R32: Blake 6-4, 7-6

True, these are challenger-level wins, and both players have impoved considerably, but you have to wonder if the odds are finally in James's favor . . .

you can't consider Paradorn-James match in 2001 event
because that's held on Clay

Almost all asian (esp Thai) don't get used to play on clay

Best of luck to Paradorn Srichaphan
Andre Agassi
James Blake
