Basel Final: Federer vs. Gonzalez

Another final, and another Federer vs. Gonzalez match. Only difference: this time, one of the two is gonna have to grind it out. It's be a best-of-five final, which doesn't bode well for either player. They've both looked EXTREMELY fatigued this week. Gonzalez (defending champion) the ATP's new Ironman, chasing a spot in Shanghai, his THIRD final in three consecutive weeks (Vienna, Madrid, Basel). Federer his second final (Madrid, Basel) playing back-to-back tournaments, finalist in '01 (l. Enqvist) and '03 (l. Henman), vying to win his first title in his hometown. Predict the outcome.

Re: Basel Final: Federer vs. Gonzalez

Will be a tight match. I think one fairly easy set for Roger along with a bunch of close sets. Who wins the close sets I don't know but I went for Roger in 4.

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

Re: Basel Final: Federer vs. Gonzalez

Oh yeah, Schoriphan (xD) had it on TB 5-3, perhaps if it had defeated to Federer, reached the title.
Fed and Fer are tired, perhaps one of them chooses the retirement before or during the match.

Come on, Fer, Your time is now!

Re: Basel Final: Federer vs. Gonzalez

Federer has lost his two finals at Basel. This match is going to be very interesting.

Re: Basel Final: Federer vs. Gonzalez

My honest opinion that Roger is going to come out and demolish him. in some 6-2ish or 3ish straight sets. He has the prize sitting in front of him now, one he probably wants more than another greand slam, and after his ability being put in check from Paradorn, he's going to want to win it convincingly.

Re: Basel Final: Federer vs. Gonzalez

Federer on Basel is under pressure, more than a Grand Slam final.

Re: Basel Final: Federer vs. Gonzalez

Hard match to predict. Since both are tired it may come down to who is mentally tougher so I give Fed the edge. Let's just hope they both fight for it and that it isn't a blowout.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
