I hope it is Federer-Nadal, that would be good.

Re: AO Final: Federer and Nadal?

Actually I'm more concerned about Tsonga then Nadal on this surface. Tsonga can serve lights out and in tiebreakers Fed is very shaky since 2008.

Yes I’ve totally overlooked Tsonga this tournament. Tsonga is playing as well as he did at last year’s AO (maybe even better) & Nadal is in a much improved form...it’s gonna be a close call! If Tsonga’s serve & stab volleys are on it will be very difficult for Nadal. Tsonga I think is a better volleyer than Fed.

Fed/Djokovic will be a great match too (assuming they get through) though I might favour Fed as Djokovic doesn’t seem as confident these days.

Fed shaky in tiebreaks since 2008? Not really. At least not in the big events, such as Wimbledon & the USO.

Fed usually steps it up a gear in tiebreaks, and hits more aggressive service returns.

Re: AO Final: Federer and Nadal?

No way, first Fed will lose to Delpo.
The final could be Nando vs Delpo.

DELPO ~ NALBAND ~ FERRU ~ RAFA ~ VERDASCO ~ GOFFIN
SID BELLUCCI ~ ISNER ~ RAONIC - DOLGO

I hope so. But please don't jinx them. )

Life is boring without (Rafa's) fist-pumping.

Federer has to beat Del Potro and Djokovic. Too easy.
