Would a Youzhny/Djokovic final be bad?

I know the odds of a Youzhny/Djokovic final are very low (esp for Youzhny to make it the final) but I want your views...

I know US open fans want a slice of the Fedal slam action which has been monoplised by FO and Wimbledon but do you think a fedal final can be anti-climatic, not necessarliy by the scoreline but by the expectation of a tennis bonanza?

a Youzhny/Djokovic final would have more of a surprise element?

your views...

Re: Would a Youzhny/Djokovic final be bad?

The Nadal - Federer final will the best thing possible for the tournament sponsors because both of them have the biggest fanbase all across the globe, so it will result in more people tuning in to watch the event. Nothing can get bigger than a Nadal - Federer final today. Whether Federer can beat his biggest rival on his weakest surface or whether Nadal wins a career slam as well which puts him in another league alltogether. Historically, it cannot get any better.

However, a Djokovic - Youzhny final will be a surprise to many and could be interesting in its own way. Whether Djokovic is able to get his second slam title or whether Youzhny can pull off the biggest surprise recently (it has been quite some time since we had a surprise winner). It has its own merits.

that would be a good scenario but I think their last classic was last year's madrid? that and they've never met in a slam final would jazz it up! but I'm not sure if Djokovic can go the distance in a best of 5 though...his stamina can be an issue

Better for Federer will be Novak against Rafa, he will beat him as always on hard, if Federer lose in final, that will be big blow, cheer for Nole, it's better for the GOAT

Re: Would a Youzhny/Djokovic final be bad?

Every final with Youzhny in would be bad . Not because Youzhny is a bad player , he couldn't be able to produce best tennis in first GS final

the guy comes across as a bit but we have to put into the equation that he's the only one out of all the remaining guys with nothing to lose....I wonder if anyone in the forum put any money on him reaching the semi's let alone the final?

A Djok/Youzhny final would be fresh and new...all what tennis world (especially GS) needs. We are fed up to see the 2 same guys playing the same final...STOP !!

It'll be nothing more than a poorer version of Djokovic-Tsonga at A0 in 2008.

I'd love to see that final as I really like both Djokovic and Youzhny. But if that happened, it would probably be an easy win for Djoko.

Re: Would a Youzhny/Djokovic final be bad?

it would more than likely mean a 3 set win for djokovic but i'd still think it would be pleasantly suprising and refreshing
