Re: WWW Battle of titans and thriller of the century - Federer vs Becker

Becker in 2 sets, 1 close and 1 a blowout. Something like 7-5 6-1

Re: WWW Battle of titans and thriller of the century - Federer vs Becker

Boris is one of the indoor Kings. He is player from strong, real era full of great indoor players like Sampras, Stich, Lendl. No way this spoilt Fed who got used to beat only mugs left and right in this conditions could snatch a set.

Becker in two.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: WWW Battle of titans and thriller of the century - Federer vs Becker

Becker is one of the worst mugs on tour. With that said, he has a chance here.

Federer doesn't have much of a chance here.

Becker in 1. Fed to retire from a hair injury.

Re: WWW Battle of titans and thriller of the century - Federer vs Becker

I should have clowns stay pressed as well but I thought that was implied .

With that being said, I think this might be tough for Roger. He had issues with Berrer here a few years ago in his prime and Becker can serve really well. Let's hope that BH net slice stays at home.

not really. he's got a good serve for his height and he manages the pressure well enough.

i remember when he retired agassi. he played a fantastic match and always kept his composure in spite of a completely partisan crowd in support of andre. btw, how old is he?? i have the memory he was old even back then.

Re: WWW Battle of titans and thriller of the century - Federer vs Becker

Fed will probably go down BP and then go in an argument with the umpire whether it's safe to play on.

'The roof is closed Roger, play on'
-'I know, but is it worth to risk it'

10 minutes later serves 3 aces and wins 6-1 6-2

Benni should manage at least one tiebreak set. Roger will be on coast-mode.
