NALBANDIAN V FEDERER, OMG I'M DROOLING!!!

who the hell will win? Nalbandian is playing the best of his life but so is Roger. Normally in that situation you would give Federer the edge but as Nalbandian has such a great record against him it is too close to call.

Andy Murray ~ Richard Gasquet ***David Nalbandian*** Rafael Nadal ~ Gilles Simon

Federer. Some of the shots he played against Hewitt were unbelievable! And he's calm. This is a good sign. I think Federer will make the final against Safin.

David - hopefully - fingers crossed. I definately feel a migraine coming on though - there is NO WAY I am sitting here at work and missing that one if they make it the night match.

Re: NALBANDIAN V FEDERER, OMG I'M DROOLING!!!

Roger has great shots but then so does Nalbandian. Nalby is currently 5 times the player Hewitt is. 'Sides Roger blew the first set and made a lot of UE's and his serve percentages weren't THAT good. I think Roger's hesitation will be a weakness Nalby can well exploit. I think Nalbandian is going to win and make it to the finals but thats just my SHAMELESS biased opinion.

It'll be a great match.

Re: NALBANDIAN V FEDERER, OMG I'M DROOLING!!!

If Federer plays like he did against Hewitt in the last 2 sets he will beat Nalbandian.

Federer can not come out flat like he did against Hewitt today. Yes Nalbandian is a better player then Hewitt but the crowd wont be biased and Nalbandian is not the fighter that Hewitt is.

It will be close and I can't wait.

It shall be very exciting. I can't to see it. Hopefully it will be a day match on Rod Laver so ESPN can show it live.

A few things to remember

Hewitt may have problems getting a lot of winners but Nalbandian definitely doesnt and that was one of the main reasons why Hewitt lost. also, Nalbandian has one of the best returns of serve in the game. Im expecting him to get a lot of breaks off Federer

Re: NALBANDIAN V FEDERER, OMG I'M DROOLING!!!

Well, I want David to win, but I think Roger will be the winner.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.
