Re: TMS Miami Final: Federer VS Nadal

I would love so much for Rafa to win. But I can't really see it happening. I'd be proud if he could take a set. My only fear is that he gets a Hewitt-like hammering, I really don't want that. But to be honest, whatever happens he's had a great tournament.

Re: TMS Miami Final: Federer VS Nadal

I actually don't think it will be a thrashing, but I do expect Rogi to win! He played amazing against Henman and Agassi, and he'll surely be very motivated to win both Masters back to back and maintain the incredible record in finals!

Re: TMS Miami Final: Federer VS Nadal

And another thing: Rogi will certainly don't want to lose twice to the same player at the same tournament! So I think he'll be fired up to win this! We'll see!

Re: TMS Miami Final: Federer VS Nadal

Rafa's hope is the high topspin forehand to Roger's backhand. Hopefully it will cause Roger some problems, but other than that I'm not sure how he can win, Roger is just too good from the back of the court at the moment.

Re: TMS Miami Final: Federer VS Nadal

It's going to be a match for the generations, everything implies it's going to be!

Nadal isn't going to have the mental breakdowns Hewitt often has after falling behind in the match against Roger, and it will definitely not be over in three sets.

I wouldn't count Nadal out at all, but in best of 5 I still give Federer the edge.

Roger in 4!

No-one said he's a legend. He's an 18 year old with undoubted potential on a marvellous winning streak, and is the standout talent coming through on the ATP Tour. People are right to be getting excited about him
