Nole in 3

Nole I hope, but in his current form it's sure to be another 3 setter... and probably a much closer one than he's faced. Mario could be a real test here. His serve is tough to crack :p

Novak in 2

I like them both.
Going for Novak, but it's gonna be a tight match, at least one TB.

I'll say Mario this time.

I would love to see Mario winning, but I think that Djokovic will get the job done in 3 sets.

I would give the edge to Ancic in 3 sets but my predictions since yesterday are pretty yucky.

I think Djokovic will win but he's definitely starting to look a bit jaded to me - he had a couple of tough encounters in Vienna last week and it's not been the best start to the event for him, struggling past both Verdasco and Ferrero with dropped sets.

If Ancic takes the fight to Nole and stays with him, it's a match Mario can win.

I think Nole will win because his mentality even when not playing well has been great for the most part of this year but I would love to be wrong. Mario has had such horrible luck with injuries during his career and he seemed so happy to get to the quarters that I hope he wins.

I'm being torned between two of my faves.

I can't choose!

But If I really have to choose, I want Nole, because he's going to be the real Federer contender for 2008.

probably 3 set struggle for Nole . He is saving easy matches for the weekend :devil:

Mario has yet to win anything big and he's already 23.

Djokovic in 2

he wont have a long match again otherwise he'll be too tired

I like them both.. But I'll go with the surprise and say Super Mario in 3!
Good luck!

novak should win in two sets.

10-18-2007, 09:55 PM
I voted for Ancic because I think Djoko will be too tired if this goes to a third set again but on the other hand I'm not sure how Ancic will handle the big points after such a long lay off...

mario has also been out for 15 of the last 20 months in the regular season because of injuries...

i think this is a tough match for mario, but i hope he can pull through

Mario has yet to win anything big and he's already 23.

To tie into what was said above- Mario has had some of the worst injury luck on the tour. Whenever he gets into form he gets a horrible injury- one time off of a skiboat or something as ridiculous.

probably nole in 3. although i would like to see mario advance.

10-18-2007, 10:52 PM
Nole, I think. I'm not sure Mario is mentally ready for this kind of matches so soon after coming back. Still, whatever he does tomorrow, it's been a very good tournament for him so far.

Love both...But that would be great for Mario to win. They are close friends, that might be a great match

I hope Mario wins as I like watching him more but I think Novak will grind another three setter out.

Nole hasn't impressed me much since the USO, and losing sets against Verdasco and Ferrero doesn't sound very convincing either. But I guess his mental toughness will make him go through. Hopefully an interesting match.

So looking forward to this match. I will be happy as long as it's a good one no matter who wins. Prediction though- Nole

Well, your "impressive" Spongehead Squarekilt can only dream of pulling something like "unimpressive" Djokovic's second set against Wawrinka in Vienna finals :) But hey, it always looks good to use ready-made sentence formulas for "appearing objective" ;)

Based on current form, I gotta admit, I like Mario. Nole can certainly get the job done if he steps it up, though.

Touchy, are we? :confused:
I happen to think that Murray is more talented than Djoko. Just an opinion, hope I am allowed to have one.

you are allowed to have opinion just like Federer who pretty much said the same thing, difference between you being that he got embarassed in international media and you said it in an internet forum so it can be forgotten quickly :o It doesn't help your credibility that you are a Fedal fan , are you going to add Nole to the list when he wins some slams ?

Ah, so you think all tennis fans who are able to like more than one player are not credible? A true sign of tardiness I think.

We are all allowed to have our own opinions in the free world, at least I still hope so. Fed had his opinion as well, and was just as allowed to have that opinion as anyone else. He didn't get 'embarrassed' at all, he just admitted that Nole indeed does better than he once expected him to do. Which is no shame, people may well change/adjust their opinion.

I never said I think Nole has no talent - rather the opposite - I respect his abilities and achievements, but in the end I expect Murray to do even better. Be sure I'll admit being wrong if Murray won't be able to meet my expectations. But for now, he's in my siggy, just because I like the player. And in case you haven't noticed, there are quite a few others there too, just because I happen to like their games, their styles, their personalities and/or attitudes.

Okay for now? I hope so. I'm not the person to get involved in tard wars, so please leave me out of them.

Hopefully Ancic, He's a better indoor player than Novak the Joko o' vic.



Federer who pretty much said the same thing, difference between you being that he got embarassed in international media and you said it in an internet forum so it can be forgotten quickly Why dont you just shut up about that for once idiotard, the only one that got embaressed was Nole, his pathetic camp and you during the US Open final when he got his scrawny ass handed to him in 3 straight sets, that is that.

Not touchy at all, just calibrating your criteria and the amount of false objectivity in them :) As for being talented, Safin purportedly is/was more talented than Federer, and Gasquet is purportedly capable of "art in tennis", so it really doesn't mean much. ("Most talented" don't get their names plated, winners do. And Squarekilt doesn't belong to the latter category, I'm sorry to inform you.)

you're asking the wrong user. If you want to know whether or not you can have an opinion you have to ask GlennMirnyi.



Djoker in 3. Super will serve bombs and pull out one set as a result.

Better hope Djokovic won't bring his A game cause in that case, even Mario's A+ game won't be enough.

It'll be a tough match I think, but you've got to go with Novak (in 3 sets). I love Mario and you've got to feel for the guy after what he's been through this year. It's nice to see him getting hear his best. If Novak loses I'll be rooting for Mario all the way:)
