TMC SF n F

I'll go out on a limb and make a few predictions .

SF

Federer v Nadal
Blake v Roddick

Both very tasty matches. I'll pick Fed over Nadal in 3.
Blake v Roddick is really very hard to predict. Roddick leads it 6-2 but the last 2 have gone to Blake but Roddick is not on a resurgent drive. I'll go with the rejuvenated Roddick.

Which means a Fed v Roddick final. Now wouldn't that be a feast to watch given their RR encounter?

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Re: TMC SF n F

I agree with your semis predictions, but I think Roddick will take out Nadal in the final. I'd pick Fed to make the final only if it were a best of 5 semi vs Nadal.

Re: TMC SF n F

Those were the semi finals that would have created the most interest. Im glad it looks likely to happen now. Both look 50/50 matches! Top two players in the world and I guess Andy and James will be playing for the US no#1 position as well.

ALLEZ FED!!!

I mostly agree with you

SF ~ Fed v Nadal, Blake v Roddick
Final ~ Federer v Blake [with the Swiss dominator to win in 4-sets]

Yup, looks like it's all going to plan.

Fed loses to Rafa and we finally get a dream Roddick-Nadal final.

Re: TMC SF n F

It's definitely a feasible scenario, but I'd rather wait till Rafa wins today's match

nah.. Nadal would have to be really poor to lose to Robredo. This is a terrible match up for Tommy as there is nothing he can do that Nadal can't do better.

Re: TMC SF n F

Nadal is playign awesome tennis right now, his winners on the run against Robredo are superb , his forehand is working like it used to and he is volleying pretty good , and Federer maybe a little bit tired if Ljubo makes it close , I would pick Nadal over Federer in 3 , Nadal is feeling good on this surface, and Nadal - Roddick final is also tasty perspective

Federer will be done on Thursday and will have one day off, whereas Nadal will have a difficult (probably) match on Friday.

Re: TMC SF n F

It seems pretty obvious to me now what it will be:

SF

federer v nadal
blake v roddick

I'd say that rafa could definitly beat federer in the SF, but in 3! A kind of doha final-like match wouldn't surprise me at all!

As for the other semi, I'd choose roddick in 2 if he plays the way he did yesterday.

For the final, I'll have to go with roddick! I can't see rafa beat him on that surface!

Re: TMC SF n F

What's the scenario if Nalbandian defeats Roddick? Does he need to beat him in 2 to have a chance? I guess that also bring Ivan in the pic since he beat Nalbandian.

Let me get this right~> you expect Nadal to beat Federer in the SF on the Spaniard`s worst surface & one of the Swiss`s best & then you think Roddick will smock Nadal in the final

Therefore World Rankings should be:

1. Roddick
2. Blake
3. Nadal
4. Federer

Smock is written "smoke" and look at their USO 2004 match. Besides look how badly Rafa fair against Big hitters on fast courts.
