David is the favourite here, but it wouldn't be extremely shocking if Jarkko makes through. Who do you think that will win this match?
totally agree. as for who will finaly take this match, I hate to guess in exact sets, but based on their current form(during past 2 matches) and the head to head
reacord, Jarkko has a better chance to win.However, David has gained a lot of confidence from the matches in Shanghai,if he could step up and play on a better form,he also has a good chance to win. Hope he has a good rest tonight and can concentrate on his play tomorrow.(I'll have some girls scream outside Jarkko's hotel room at night
---kidding! maybe this's more effective on David,considering Jarkko's married
