Who Will Win Stockholm?

Looking at the draw, it almost seems like a final between Nadal and Blake is quasi-inevitable. Who will win, providing they both get there?

Nadal - Blake - Dimitrov - Del Potro - Isner - Fish - Haase

Re: Who Will Win Stockholm?

Neither.

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".

Berdych will win

Roger Federer - The GOAT
Wawrinka - Haas - Chiudinelli - Dimitrov - Thiem - Kontinen - Mirnyi





Kuerten - Edberg - Sampras

Re: Who Will Win Stockholm?

Nadal will surely make the final looking at his draw, I hope James will make it also but Berdych will be dangerous.

ALLEZ FED!!!

Re: Who Will Win Stockholm?

Looking at the draw, it seems that Berdych or Soderling are more likely to win the tournament. Hopefully Tomas.

James has almost maximized his points from optional events, having 4 wins and a final. He will use this as a warm up for Madrid. Rafa plays his first indoor event since spring, he is also using this event to warm up for Madrid. I wouldn't be surprised if he loses to Sluiter or Vlegen

Re: Who Will Win Stockholm?

I'd be very interrested in a Blake/Nadal final. It's Rafa's time so I pick him.

Re: Who Will Win Stockholm?

Nadal to win.

Do not expect Blake to reach final as he is in the more difficult half with Berdych and home player Soderling. The Nadal half consists of players he should he beat.

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.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

Re: Who Will Win Stockholm?

Blake, Nadal or nobody. Yeah, that's a real good scouting report.

Don't be surprised if neither make the final. Better yet - the third round.
