US Open finalist: Nadal, Roddick or Neither

Who do you think will reach the final from the bottom half of the draw?

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

According to Pmac it will be Roddick.

I don't see Andy winning 3 sets against Nadal in their potential duel

I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Re: US Open finalist: Nadal, Roddick or Neither

Except for Flip in round 1 and possibly Roddick in the SF, no one in Rafa's draw can really trouble him I think. I think he'll beat Flip and I don't expect Roddick to see the semis, so I'll take Rafa.

Re: US Open finalist: Nadal, Roddick or Neither

Finally, a poll that makes sense. Hey, dont get me wrong, Roddick is great, but all players are second teir to Federer and Nadal, even if Nadal loses with a bit more frequency that Federer does.

Re: US Open finalist: Nadal, Roddick or Neither

Roddick, they haven't played in a while but if Andy plays well he can beat him.

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy
Missing: Andre | Safin | Women's tennis

Re: US Open finalist: Nadal, Roddick or Neither

Nadal will most likely make the finals. Just like at Wimbledon Nadal had a paper thin draw. There is absolutely no one prior to the semifinals that could even get a set or much less challenge Nadal. Roddick has a lot of tough players in his draw. He has to worry about Marcos or Agassi in the fourth round. And potentially Ljubicic in the quaterfinals or Lleyton Hewitt. Not exactly easy. It seems Nadal should race through the draw just like he did at Wimbledon. Nadal has no quality opponents like Berdych that can stop him.

Re: US Open finalist: Nadal, Roddick or Neither

I'll go with Rafa, but won't be against Federer. Roddick seems to have lost his fire and if he makes the quarters, he'll be lucky.
