Gasguet, Nadal or Roddick to play Federer in Final?

Gasguet, Roddick and Nadal are all in the same part of the draw and I would have to say that based on current performances that Gasquet would have to be the favourite to play against Federer in the final.

I believe Gasquet and Roddick will meet up in the quarters where Gasquet will prolly win in 4 sets as he is a better all round player while Nadal's 'King Of Clay' dominance won't be able to translate well enough to defeat Gasquet at his best.

What do you all think?

Re: Gasguet, Nadal or Roddick to play Federer in Final?

This will be really exciting half of the draw if you ask me...I am really interested who will emerge, but I agree it will probably come down to these 3, maybe even Agassi or Hewitt too

Re: Gasguet, Nadal or Roddick to play Federer in Final?

Richie is unknown quantity at this level. So far so good, but the real test will only start in 4th round (I assume he will beat the other swiss from Basel).

I'd say Roddick, but these three are not the only favourite to reach the final (Agassi, Hewitt or Djokovic come to mind).

Re: Gasguet, Nadal or Roddick to play Federer in Final?

Nadal has looked extremely strong so far, Horna did well but never really stood a chance.

Re: Gasguet, Nadal or Roddick to play Federer in Final?

Think Roddick.

He will be outplayed by Nadal in semi-final, but will win because of his serve keeping him in the match.

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.
