Re: WWW IW Final: [3] Wawrinka vs. [9] Federer

I wonder if Federer can win a 3rd masters title without getting broken..

You get the feeling that this will be competitive though. Wawrinka will have his chances if today's 2nd set Federer shows up, but no chance if Federer from the Nadal match shows up.

Would be surprising if Stan won, he's had trouble with the backhand all tournament.

2017 is a strange year. I keep having to cheer for Wawrinka out of necessity. That being said, Federer in 3.

Re: WWW IW Final: [3] Wawrinka vs. [9] Federer

This is going to be close and Stan can win if he starts swinging freely with power like in Australia in sets three and four.

Re: WWW IW Final: [3] Wawrinka vs. [9] Federer

first masters of the year and Fed is in the final again after AO. It's too good to be true! I can see Roger rushing Stan and making it hard for Stan to play even on that slow court. Hopefully Fed can win it.

The slower IW courts should help Stan, I'll say Stan in 3. Should be a great one, though, regardless.

Re: WWW IW Final: [3] Wawrinka vs. [9] Federer

Depends which version of each player turns up. With a high-bounce, slower court and heat of the day one would expect Wawrinka to win this, especially if it goes to a third set. There is also the very real chance of Stanimal making another appearance. With Federer still being in comeback mode Wawrinka has to be the favourite for this one.

BUT... If the same Federer that demolished Nadal/ took first set off Sock turns up, then you would expect Federer to win.

On balance, this is not easy to predict.

Re: WWW IW Final: [3] Wawrinka vs. [9] Federer

I am heavily rooting for Stanimal but since this year's my prediction in finals is turning out to be opposite I'll choose Fraud in 3.

VAMOS Stanimal

What's the record between them on HC? Like 16-0?
