maybe yes, that's why I said he has a chance at this, but I do see him more comfortable on the north American HC courts

I predict a Federer - Del Potro final, Roger wins in 5
Federer - Djokovic and Nadal - Del Potro SF

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

I just want Basel time to come around. I'll worry about the AO later.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.19

Yeah which would explain why he won Washington, made the final of Montreal, and won the USO



I predict:

Semi Finals:
Roddick vs Federer - Roddick in 5
Murray vs Del Potro - Murray in 5

Final:
Roddick vs Murray - Probably Murray in 4/5

And this is what i THINK and not HOPE!

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.19

Might well happen Jase.

But Roddick should definitely not say "I think I'm getting closer to beating Fed, I had MPs in Shanghai and beat him in Kooyong" again before his SF encounter. For his own sake.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.19



But yeah i agree, he shouldn't, and he has Larry Stefanki there and he'll defo tell Roddick not to think 'negative' thoughts out there.

Only problem is that the last 2 times Federer and Roddick have played at the AO have been very 1 sided even tho i feel Roddick has played decent/well in those matches.

Duck has a mental block against Roger in slams, he has never been able to defeat him there

He's getting closer tho

Thing is Roddick's confidence against Federer will probably be lower than it's ever been

Btw: From these last few weeks, do i by any chance sound like i'm a Roddick fan? =|

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.19

Jase, you also have to consider another thing: the AO surface doesn't benefit Duck much, he has made QF and SF there, but I don't really see him winning the whole thing

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.19

I can never see Roddick winning the AO, i think if he plays well he can make the final with a bit of luck every now and then, but i don't see him winning it, not even if he plays Boggo in the final.

YES!!! I've got the last post of volume 17 and 18

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.19

monday for the afternoon session only. It's the most fleeting visit ever. I managed to get an extra day off work so I'm getting there about an hour before the tennis on the train then I have to meet my friend and get there. Really cheapo tickets too so we are going to have shit seats. But hey it's tennis right. Knowing my luck it will be a hideous match something like Federer v Roddick (that would be my nightmare match out of the top 8 I think).

Anything Federer though and my friend will cheer enough to make up for it. She is a huge Fed fan.

Who is in the last 2 spots at the moment anyway?

We have Nadal, Fed, Murray, Del Po, Nole, Roddick, Davydenko and ?


Nat I still haven't decided about Bercy. I will make my decision like the day before probably. I think I booked my tickets for the tennis about 3 days before last year. I knew we were going but we hadn't decided on days.


And I maintain wtf is ridiculously expensive. You can get really good tickets for Bercy for about £40 but the £40 tickets for wtf are still crap.

WOW, that's actually the match i want to see the most of any encounter, i think it will be a good taste of seeing what state Roddick's mentality is in, and how the London crowd react to Roddick

Oh and Davydenko and Verdasco are in the last 2 places.
