Roger vs. Tim Who will win??

So we have the highly anticipated SF showdown with Federer and Henman. Who will prevail in this one.
Things to keep in mind before making choice:
1. Henman leads Federer 6-2 in career matches
2. While Henman is undefeated against Federer on indoors and grass, Federer has never lost to Henman on an outdoor hardcourt.
3. While Federer crunched Henman in IW, the USO court will be playing much faster, therefore making it easier for Tim to go after Roger's backhand and make his net play more effective
4. Henman is 0-5 in semifinals of GS while Federer is 3-0

"I think that now and until the end of my career, I can really play with my mind at peace, and no longer hear that I've never won Roland Garros." - Roger Federer

Henman is the Mauresmo of the ATP tour.

I think that Rogi will win in 3 or 4 sets

Nothing short of a severe injury on Roger's part will keep him from his third GS of the year.

Roger in 3 sets, maximum 4

Re: Roger vs. Tim Who will win??

I see no reason for Federer to lose this.

But if Tim is really attacking and making few errors, it could throw Fed off. It's a big adjustment to go from Agassi to Henman, and if Tim can capitalize on that early, who knows?...

There's no way Roger will lose this match and Tim making his first grand slam title.

Another Game for Milos

ROGER

Re: Roger vs. Tim Who will win??

A lot depends on the conditions, if its gastly like today then it really suits Henmans volley game.

Re: Roger vs. Tim Who will win??

How so Wvyern? I think bad conditions will throw them both off. Henman didn't have any wind with Hrbaty today shockingly. I hope the day is nice but who knows. Rogi doesn't need to fear Henman's groundies like he did with Andre so I think he will be more comfortable playing Henman if the conditions are bad. It should be a fun match and if Rogi loses then well at least he is consistent.

Yep- me too. I think that Henman will take him to 4 sets, but Feds will get this and then the title.
