US Open Final: Federer vs. Roddick

Who will take the crown.

We all know about Federer's incredible statistics. This is his 3rd straight US Open final, having beaten Agassi and Hewitt in the other two. He is fighting for a 9th Grand Slam title in his tenth final. If he were to win he would make a record as being the only guy to win Wimbledon and the US Open back to back three years running.

Roddick will be coming in full of confidence. He hasn't played like this since late last year and is looking to build on his victory at Cincinnati. A surprisingly good record for Roddick which may go un-noticed by some is that with his win over Youzhny he has now reached a slam final for the fourth year running.

Who wins?

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

You should have made this a poll for this...your thread will parish in flames.

Re: US Open Final: Federer vs. Roddick

It'll be interesting, a little different from their previous slam encounters as it's at the Open and Roddick will have an incredible amount of crowd support.

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

There is a poll The thread is posted as soon as you press post and then you have to make the poll afterwards. This is why there is a gap between the thread appearing and the poll appearing to go alongside it.

Re: US Open Final: Federer vs. Roddick

Roddick wasn't playing really awesome. He was playing his game - "break an opponent and not to lose my serve". he had some thrilling moments during this tounament (I really thought he could lose to Verdasco), but managed to overcome them.
Federer was playing his game. He was playing good enough to reach the final and was not tested by any of his opponents. If he's losing points, that's usually because of his errors. If he's focused, he hardly ever makes them.
I say Fed in 3. Roddick's form is rising, but not at the peak (I mean, 2003-04). Federer is even better than then. He can read Roddick's serves, change game's speed, has a bigger variety of shots and his tactics - better

Re: US Open Final: Federer vs. Roddick

I think this will be a repeat of Wimbly 2004. Fed in 4.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Agreed. I think the fact that Roger can read Roddicks serve so well is what results in him losing to him most often, particularly since he RARELY varies its placement. Federer in 4.

Re: US Open Final: Federer vs. Roddick

I always vote "Fed in straight sets" unless it's vs. Nadal on clay.
So I've voted that again, but won't be too surprised if Roddick takes a set off him.

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)
SAFIN 2 and Out (T.T)
