Which claycourter in Fed's 1/2 can beat Fed?

which one has the most chance of beating Fed?

I think Fed will lose before he faces Nadal. Conditions are not favourable for Fed's style of play.

If you think Fed will lose before the final, then come out and say who you will think is going to do it.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

some options

Gaudio, Nalbandian, Robredo, Massu, Davydenko...all are in red hot form at the moment...if they have a good day can beat Fed on this surface..the only surface that renders him human

i think the one with the best chance is probably Gaudio..he can go really cold or really hot...plus he's won this tourney before and is really good on this surface

Do you watch tennis?

"My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories."

Re: Which claycourter in Fed's 1/2 can beat Fed?

Gaudio is not in red hot form at all, it's not the Euro summer of 2005. I worry about how much tennis you really watch to come up with the red hot statement. Massu lost to Gimelstob and will probably lose to Mirnyi.

How is Robredo going to beat Federer? He doesn't beat the players above him and he knows his role as the bitch to Federer, Nadal etc etc.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Gaudio and Massu are in red hot form?

The more pressing question here is what you consider as red hot form

Either Montanes or Vassallo Arguello. Vamos chicos!

I'm also anxious about rematch for Wimbledon, against Falla.

I think Davydenko can do it.

I am not sure if the PMK will be the one doing it. He will get too tight in this situation.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I don't recall saying it was stupid. I just laughed. Found it more funny than stupid.
