Re: WWW AO RD 3: B-Nard Vs Rogi

I think Roger wins in 4, for some reason I just think that Tomic will be able to win 1 set this time around.

Supporting: Djokovic, Federer, Tsonga, Del Potro, Wawrinka, Nishikori, Raonic

Not a fan of Nadal, Kyrgios, Tomic & Murray

The Great One to annihilate this feeble old man. Tomic announced himself with an impressive victory over Brands and with crowd support he will send the Nose back to Switzerland to change his kids diapers.

Re: WWW AO RD 3: B-Nard Vs Rogi

Probably because Fed was good at exposing his bad movement last year. Still, I feel he has made strides in that department. If that will be enough remains to be seen.

roger in 4.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Fed is also very smart in terms of reading the play, and seemingly isn't bothered that much by junkballing/constant changes of pace. Those are Tomic's biggest strengths.

I think Tomic will probably hold a respectable number of service games, but will struggle to get a look-in at breaking Fed. So we will probably have 3 or possibly 4 close sets without the ultimate result ever being in serious doubt.

Yup, exactly. Tomic slicing and junkballing Fed is like someone trying to bother Nadal with single handed BH

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

I don't see any match up issue. Fed is just better. More weapons, more variation, more everything pretty much

While Federer certainly the variety king in this field, it is ironic that he has struggled against Murray who so often uses such varied tactics..then again Federer has won virtually all their meeting meetings, bar the Olympics.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

But Murray is very athletic and has great movement.

Tomic has great variety but no movement and his athleticism is questionable.

Re: WWW AO RD 3: B-Nard Vs Rogi

Murray beats Federer with defense, which is why Tomic stands no chance.
