Re: halle: poll : federer vs rochus

Ollie always gives Fed problems. I think Fed will sneak by in three like he did at IW.

Need ideas for a new signature...

You're right, but this is grass which should make matters easier for Roger, and even not yet playing at his best, I think he can win this in two close sets.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc

Ah, but you didn't factor in Roger's second set blues.

Re: halle: poll : federer vs rochus

Normally I would say Fed in 2 against Oli on grass but Fed looks very fatigued to me. He just seems so drained, and given their crazy matches, Oli just might sneak a win. I hope Fed will pull through though

I don't know about that. Fed leads 4-0 in H2H and only lost a set in the most recent encounter. Otherwise the scores look pretty straightforward:

2006 ATP Masters Series Indian Wells R32 Federer 3-6 6-2 7-5
2005 US Open Hard R32 Federer 6-3 7-6(6) 6-2
2005 ATP Masters Series Cincinnati R16 Federer 6-3 6-4
2005 ATP Masters Series Miami R64 Federer 6-3 6-1

What's problem actually.... http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/...olivier+rochus

Rochus is too small to beat Fed. Noone players under 177 cm capable to beat Fed in 3 years. I think the smallest player in that terms was Gasquet when he hammered Fed in MonteCarlo, he was still 178cm. so....

Fed in 2

Sorry, but that has got to be one of the most ridiculous statistics I've seen used to predict an upcoming match.

Re: halle: poll : federer vs rochus

Federer should win this in 2, but Rochus can be surprisingly tough at times.
