Re: madrid

Just read somewhere in GM where the "transitional king" will not win this tournament. I've heard it before, but this time it just struck me as extra funny. May he be the "transitional king" for a good deal longer and win this tournament (a beat down of Canas would be nice, too).

Lets be realistic

It will be a difficult match for Roger considering the fact that he has to play against a player who has beaten him twice in a row. When was the last time he lost to a player not named Nadal back to back?

Canas will go into this match with some selfconfidence. I don't think Roger had sleepless nights because of his two losses to him earlier this year but it will surely be in his mind.

Nevertheless it's a completely new match in different surroundings. Lets hope for a good performance from Roger. Good luck

Re: madrid

If Roger just plays a good match he should win in two routine sets. Honestly, Canas has nothing to hurt him with. All he can really do is run balls down. People talk about his serve but Roger seemed to return it well in Miami. It's just that he was playing out of his ass in that match. If he loses tomorrow I'll probably laugh.

Re: madrid

federer

plz beat canas.

Re: madrid

I'm worried for Roger...........I know he can beat Canas, but one never knows which Roger will walk out on court tomorrow. Canas' 'hot streak' is over. He hasn't made a bleep on the radar in quite a while. But he thinks he has Roger's number........

Best of luck to Roger tomorrow.......

I won't be able to stop myself becoming a fan! And playing at this level and keeping his self belief, he has a real chance to take Nadal out.
Personally, I want Roger to face Rafa in the final. I so want that head-to-head reversed.
