Rafael vs. Andre : Who will win Montreal

I want Andre but Nadal is going to be tough

"Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another" .. Madonna

Drooling after Schuettler, Bolelli, Volandri, Starace (short haired version), ToJo, Tursunov, Alves, Davydenko, Djokovic, Petzschner, Ferrero, Simon, Qureshi

Re: Rafael vs. Andre : Who will win Montreal

Andre I hope. At this stage in his career who knows when it'll be his last. I can't believe he has 17 MS titles. That's incredible!

Re: Rafael vs. Andre : Who will win Montreal

I pick Nadal in 2 but I'm pretty bad in prediction.

Re: Rafael vs. Andre : Who will win Montreal

Why is it best of three!! That sucks!! Up to this year, it was a best of five only in TMS Europe, but this year, it's been best of five in ALL TMS, including Indian Wells and Miami. If Montreal plays best of three, I think it's kinda stupid. It should logically be best of five and I hope it is.

How do you know? Does it say on the website or did they mention it on TV or something? I don't know why this one would be different than the other MS events.

Re: Rafael vs. Andre : Who will win Montreal

If Andre wins tomorrow, then we won't see him again until the US Open because 35 year old athletes need lots more rest and preparation than those in their 20's

He won't suffer in the rankings if he wins so he can afford it. Nobody wants to see a repeat of Andre grimacing in pain at this US Open like he did in the French Open now do we?

Re: Rafael vs. Andre : Who will win Montreal

Too hard to choose, it's like a crime to ask this question! Roger-Andre-Rafael is it for me during these days! Okay let me try....I think it's obvious to be a tough one as it's Andre and Rafael, but it's hardcourt and Andre has so much experience in this kind of tournament and plays best on hardcourt (remember Roger def. Rafael at Ericsson Open). Plus, more people know Rafael's game now. But Rafael is just too tough becuase he's got the clay court game and both offense and defense and he's improved so much since the Ericsson, plus he's now a champion. I don't know but I'm just cheering for a great match between these two and I want to see an era vs. era match with them bringing their best and nobody getting injured! But to keep from going on and on, I'll just say that I want Andre to win this even by 1% more because he's THE MAN! And he's in the last part of his career and he's been through hard times again and again, and Rafael is so young that he'll have so many chances. Here's to a great final!
