Fed vs. Blake

Alright here it is folks, the Post A-Train era begins for me. I've liked him since that 2001 US Open match against Hewitt. Blake is the next guy i root for. Tomorrow night, we'll see if Blake can go one further with no divided loyalties unlike last year.

Who will win?

Re: Fed vs. Blake

It's still 3-love in the third against the 5-set specialist, let's hold on a bit

Re: Fed vs. Blake

The first set will be tight, Roger will take it 7-6 or 7-5 and then roll over James in the next two sets, Roger is 3.

Re: Fed vs. Blake

Federer should win. Blake plays a style that Roger enjoys playing against. Roger mostly has problems against the brick walls.

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.

Re: Fed vs. Blake

Fed in 3 or 4 most likely.... Berdych was awful today. but maybe the J-Block will pull James through who knows.

Re: Fed vs. Blake

Blake faced bp's on nearly every single service game, he'll be punished tomorrow.

Fed in 4, at the very most.

Re: Fed vs. Blake

It'll be interesting to see if the Berdych beatdown inspires Blake or not.

It'll also be interesting to see if the J-Block has any negative effect on Roger. Highly doubtful, IMO. But it should make for an excellent high-energy match.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Fed vs. Blake

If James gets ahead early, he can really make this tough for Roger. But if Roger gets the momentum, I definitely expect a straight sets win for Roger. I don't think the block will matter as there is a sizable portion of the crowd that routinely appreciates and roots for Roger vociferously
