FEDERER v GAUDIO: semi-final preview

http://www.itftennis.com/mens/player...onent=10012931

2003 Gstaad SF Clay (O) R.FEDERER 6-1 7-6(6)
2003 Canada 64 Hard (O) R.FEDERER 6-4 3-6 7-5
2004 Hamburg 64 Clay (O) R.FEDERER 6-1 5-7 6-4
2004 Tennis Masters Cup Hard (O) R.FEDERER 6-1 7-6(4)


Federer leads 4-0 head to head, but Gaudio has shown some fight in each of their encounters so far, and I would expect nothing less tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be easier than usual, and congratulations Fed for a new bitch tomorrow.

I think Federer was playing better last year than he is at the moment, while Gaudio is certainly playing better.

If Federer has another lapse in concentration like yesterday, watch out .

Gaudio has a chance if Roger twists his ankle on the sticky surface otherwise Gaston will lose.

It took Gonzalez at his brainless worst to lose narrowly to Gaudio, missing 4 MP's.
To top it all Gaudio will be tired, which makes for a convenience straight sets win.

Re: FEDERER v GAUDIO: semi-final preview

And Federer wasn't at his worst when he dropped that set 1-6 to Coria?

Re: FEDERER v GAUDIO: semi-final preview

I wouldn't dare write off Gaudio so easily. He always gives Federer some trouble, so if the latter's not at 100% (which he says he's not), it could be another tough match.

First, Don't expect him to play like that when it matters, and second, comparing to Gaudio Coria is Sampras.

Just sit and watch the thrashing.

Who do you think is more likely to have a lapse in concentration? Federer or Gaudio?

Re: FEDERER v GAUDIO: semi-final preview

best case scenario is federer loses second set something like 6-1 because the chinese are paying him under the table to make matches interesting even though it just makes them more boring. coria match was a disgrace.

Re: FEDERER v GAUDIO: semi-final preview

Feds is into personal bitches territory, 4-0 Gaudio 5-0 Davydenko 4-0 (last 4 meetings) Nalby. There is no preview, this is a squash.
