This could be the hardest Semi and possible Final for Federer ever

I don`t know about you guys but I think this could be the most difficult
semi and possible final if it turn`s out to be Nadal.

It`s not that Federer is playing bad like some of you think...he`s in good shape, it`s just that Djoker and Nadal is playing very well. Djoker is a better hardcourt player than Nadal and will trouble Feds. And Feds have problems with the way Nadal plays even tough he has won the most last meetings.

This will be a really hard test for him maybe the hardest ever.
What do you guys think?

(Don`t get mad at me about Tsonga. With all this I just asume the if Nadal makes it to the Final)

Nadal won't be a problem, its just Fakervic Fed has to worry about.

Agreed.

IF he comes through, it'll be a huge confidence boost for the rest of the year.

No, someday Federer will meet the King Hernadez in the final

Seriously yes, he will have a very hard time I think. (But with Federer you never know, he might straight set Djoke and Nadal and even give them a few bagels on the way...)

One of the many impersonations he picked up from Sharapova.

Re: This could be the hardest Semi and possible Final for Federer ever

I think rafa will get wiped if he faces roger. But novak is a big threat imo. Roger is plaing good but not great he serisouly does not slice anymore. Its his safety balll and he no longer uses it

LONG LIVE THE KING

1.Federer
2.Tsonga
3.Safin
4.Roddick

Re: This could be the hardest Semi and possible Final for Federer ever

The succesful run by Djoko makes seem this SF as especially hard for Fed. But this happens with almost any tournament. Sincerely I don´t see anything soooo special about Djoko. He´s in an ascending evolution as must be, but the big leap isn´t to be seen anywhere. I don´t doubt Fed has his number and it will be a task of tightening some clevises along the match for getting through in three or four sets. Djoko will not find in Roger neither the blind grinding of Pics nor the tired heroism of Hewitt.
