Re: Federer Fans, who do win want to win the AO final: Safin or Hewitt?

I had wanted Safin to win the title right after the match, coz he beated Roger. He deserves the title now.

But I soon changed my mind. First, he hurt Roger so deep. Second, NOBODY could beat Roger like what happened on the MP, simply unbearable to me. Third, I'm thinking of the whole shit from his fans and the stupid media after the semi, bearing in mind it's only semi-final, what more shit will they come up with if he wins the title

I admit I'm not generous at all...

Never thought I will cheer for Hewitt plus it's a GS final and he will have 3 in his hand if he wins it, but still GOOOOOOOOOOOO Hewitt

Re: Federer Fans, who do win want to win the AO final: Safin or Hewitt?

Hello everyone. This is my first post in the Federer express forum. I hope Safin wins the final. He played a lot better than Hewitt in this tournament. I want him to destroy Hewitt in 3 easy sets
That would show everybody there was nothing wrong with Roger in the semi-final. Safin just played some excellent tennis. His lob on matchpoint was simply amazing. But I'm still angry about that point at 5-5 in the final set. That forehand was wide

I don't care who will win the title, only expect the better player in the final wins it.
Actually, I really hope no one wins the title, of course it's impossible.

I don't mind either of them winning it- but Marat has already lost 2 finals so it would be a shame if he would lose a third- besides if he won he would have all the pressure next year as defending champ, and Roger could give him a taste of his own medicine

Safin just turned 25, which is not that young in tennis terms (I doubt Safin has the motivation to play into his 30s when things become difficult) and he does deserve another slam, particularly AO where he has beaten everyone from Sampras to Federer.

Re: Federer Fans, who do win want to win the AO final: Safin or Hewitt?

At first I have planned to root for Marat if Rogi couldn't make it, but after the loss I was bitter and switched for Lleyton. I have calmed down today, so now I don't care who win.

Both have their own fairytale story ending if they win the title. Marat to win the title in his third tries or Lleyton to win it on the 100th anniversary of AO. The best man can't win it this year, so may the second best man win

BTW are they fighting for #2 too here along with the title?

Re: Federer Fans, who do win want to win the AO final: Safin or Hewitt?

I'm also not actively rooting for anyone. Marat has my vote by default because he beat Rogi. If he were to lose to Hewitt, i'd be very upset because we all know if Rogi were there he would win the title. So Go Marat, i guess

Hewitt. i don't like their games of both, but after fighting so many tough matches, Mr. Potato should deserve a GS in his homeland, and it's not bad to let Aussies see their player win it.

Re: Federer Fans, who do win want to win the AO final: Safin or Hewitt?

I voted for Marat cos if he defeatted Rogi, he has to be hte best this time., But also Lleyton is a fighter anbd wanst this sooo much
About rankings, I do not know, dont they started from o??
Roger has 50 point and will get 90 so hell be 140.,

Marat has no point so if he wins he{llhave the 200. And if Hewitt wins hell have 200 + 43 for the other 2 tournamets.
So Will Marat or Hewitt be number 1, then rogi and then andy pandy? Or they count and discount over the last year point. I do not get that method of all starting again. Why they give points to the MASTERS cup then... to last only 1 month?

The Indesit ATP Annual Race starts all again at the beginning of each year. But the real race, the ATP Entry Ranking, covers a period of 52 weeks. So, at the Entry Ranking, points will be after AO :

Federer 5975
Hewitt 4140 (or 4440 if he wins the final)
Roddick 3855
Safin 3060 (or 3360 if he wins the final)

Roger still #1 of course! And a new #2 now.

And I will vote for Safin, because I want him to reach #2 asap! No more semis between Roger and Marat please : only finales!
