WWW AO SF: [3] Murray vs. [2] Federer

It’s once again up to Roger to save tennis. But he wasn’t too impressive against Tsonga, and also the match against Tomic was tight. On the other hand, Murray hasn’t yet lost a set, but he hasn’t faced really big names either. And Andy leads their H2H. But Roger leads their big matches 6-2 (’12 OG F &’08 WTF RR for Murray). And let’s not forget their last match. Fed took quite clear a win at WTF SF. Yeah, it was indoors but it still was a slowish HC. So if Fed plays his best tennis, he will win. But he hasn’t played his best tennis so far; the question is if he can find his best form. I believe he can.

So Federer in 3.

Stan Wawrinka
2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion | 2016 US Open Champion

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
2008 Paris Masters Champion | 2014 Toronto Masters Champion

Could be the match of the tournament, I think both have an equal chance to advance to the final here. If I had to guess I would say Murray in 5.

Re: WWW AO SF: [3] Murray vs. [2] Federer

Murray hasn't faced any challenge this tournament, so we still don't know how he plays when its tight. So no prediction from my side, I just really don't know!

Exhausterer loses in 4 after a session of super-sweet session of pushing.

this Federer stands no chance against well-rested Murray

Re: WWW AO SF: [3] Murray vs. [2] Federer

If Roger plays like today again, Murray in 3

“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.”

Two GREAT players, but Roger is still the better one. He was way off today, but generally he played as good as Murray throughout the tournament, if not better. Hope I can watch the whole thing on Friday.
