From Mal's Article This match has the potential to be one of the greatest finals we've seen since Andre Agassi's five-set victory in the final of the French Open in 1999. It could go either way, but look for Federer to win in five sets.
After being Safin Slapped three times, Mal was a little more objective here.
i don't know what's worse... picking someone to lose 3 times in a row and have that person wil all three times... or calling a "too close to call" in the federer/nalbandian match... WHAT, was he worried about ruining his match calling record
Re: Mal: Federer will overcome Safin in 5 for the AO title
Actually I don't really care who wins as I like them both. My main thing is that it's a close final for a change, just because you have two very good players doesn't mean it will be a good match.
I remember the time they played in Hamburg and Feds chopped Safin big time and don't want to see that again. If it could be like the 88 AO final which was one of the last decent finals I have seen, then it would be great.
“ 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".
