Mighty Fed vs fighter Cañas... what type of match will it be?

Your opinion. Since it's almost sure Fed will win the poll options are a bit different than usual.

H2H is 1-1. Willy def. Fed on his way to his memorable Toronto title in 2002. Fed def Willy 6-3 6-1 two years ago on IW.

Edit: sorry about typos in poll

I wouldn't call it "the upset of the century" if Canas wins. Federer losing to Berdych in Athens for example was a much bigger upset.

Option 3 in my opinion, Federer will win but not before working his ass off on the court.

Option 2 for me. Federer will win 6-2 / 6-3 or something like this.

Nalbandian - JMDP - Djokovic - Nadal - Mathieu - Verdasco - Coria - Tipsarevic - Nieminen - Calleri

A tricky first day at the office for Roger but I would like Willy's chances more in a first round in Montecarlo.

Canas like other grinders such as Ferrer and Robredo will be food and drink for Federer.

Accounting for his usual 1st round wobbles, it will probably be 7-6, 6-4 or something along them lines.

Ferrer and Robredo do not have the speed and defensive skills of a Nadal. If you are going to defend against Federer you need to be as good as Nadal.

And if you're going to attack against Federer you need to be as good as... Federer.

Re: Mighty Fed vs fighter Cañas... what type of match will it be?

Roger in 2 EASY sets. How many times must he prove this? He steps it up against the big name players who happen to be in good form. Remember Haas and Gonzales? Doesn't matter that this is a first round, he's going to be zoned in right away and Canas isn't going to be able to do a thing.

What sort of a question is this? What sort of match will this be? An extremely boring, one sided match from Federer like usual, I mean what else is new.
