I know this thread is a little premature, since Fed/Kiefer hasn't been played yet. If Kiefer goes through
, then I'm all for Marcos taking it to him in the final and winning the whole thing - I've jumped firmly onto his crowded bandwagon.
However, if Roger wins, I'm really nervous for him - I can't help comparing a Fed/Baggy final to Safin/Sampras USO 2000. Two talented 20 year olds reaching the final of a GS against the overwhelming favourite with nothing to lose...
I know Federer doesn't take his opponents lightly, but none of his matches are a foregone conclusion. For what it's worth, with the way he's been pushed in his last two matches, I'm concerned about the SF as well - I really hope he's on form for this one.
Thoughts anyone? Does a Baghdatis/Federer final scare you as well?
