Naturally odds are Fed in two, but I'd say that Nieminen's chances to win have risen from 0% to 1% due to how he's played this week.

Federer has never lost a set to Nieminen, I don't see this changing.

Federer 2-0 without a doubt, check their H2H

Yes, Nieminen is perfect matchup for Roger, he used to beat him comprehensively even in his pre-dominant years.

Or come and lose his first match, probably against Dr.Ivo.

7-0 in H2H, never lost a set.

:lol: indeed, wouldn't be surprised at that at all.

As for the question: 90% chance for Fed in two I'd say.

Nice. The lowest ranked player Federer plays in a final all year. Who he has never lost one set to in 7 matches. In front of his home crowd. With a win clinching No.1 for him.

It's all perfectly lined up.... let's see if he can capitalize. Go Roger! (In straights)

Tabledott

Rog in straights of course

krakenzero
10-27-2007, 05:22 PM
I don't know why, but I think Jarkko has the chance of winning his first set against Fed. Anyway, he's not gonna beat him in Basel, no chance. I say Fed in 3...

Mateya
10-27-2007, 05:47 PM
Hmmm, dream opponent for Fed looking at H2H...would thought that lefthanded Nieminen would cause him some trouble but looks like it doesnt.

Could bet my house on this, Fed 6-4 6-3 or whatever :cool:

Federer in straights is very, very likely.

Expect Federer to win and secure y.e. no. 1.

However, he may play Paris to protect number 1 position in early 2008.
Also is there not a bonus!

This is the most one sided poll I've seen on MTF.

Smasher
10-27-2007, 06:57 PM
Jarkko in three :rocker2: Just to give him a vote in the poll :angel:

To be honest, winning a set would be great. But Jarkko surely has nothing to lose tomorrow :p

R.Federer
10-27-2007, 06:59 PM

Except the match .... :p

He has already lost it, at least according to this thread :p

I don't even have to look at the H2H. Roger will win--it is his home tournament.

:eek: oh the horror!!

if nieminen has the power to prove us all wrong, then i vote this as a permanent sticky, and all members must mourn in it every day for a minute.:sad:

I bet Roger would be thrilled to clinch number 1 in Basel, how perfect!

Oh yes, Roger - 6:3, 6:4.

Nieminen 46 76 62. He's on fire now and he feels very confident. I don't see how Federer would have any weapons to beat Jarkko. Nieminen is simply too good.

Dougie

It would be easy to say Federer wins, but mark my words, Jakke shows no mercy this time. Nieminen 6-4 7-6.

Yes, Jarkko will be as tough as Steve McQueen in Towering Inferno! Get those women and children out of there, Nieminen will set the venue on fire!

He certainly will. Already made a large bet on Jakke, there´s no way Federer will escape this inferno!

Voted for Jarkko !!:)

He's in a really good shape and beat strong players this week. It will be difficult, but he's nothing to lose and he's able to cause some problems to Federer.

Olet paras Jarkko !:bounce:

What is wrong with you? :rolleyes: Oh yeah right he's been losing to soooo many lefties beside Rafa lately. :haha: :haha: He's just trembling in front of the likes of Feli and Berrer. :rolls:
Fed in 2 like 6-1 6-1. :D :D See, I'm the bigger Fedtard than you. :p
P.S. Jarkko's won like 1 ATP final out of 6 or smth. :rolls:

Hopefully Roger won't bring his best game to the final, then Jarkko has a small chance.

not likely to happen though, Federer in two tight sets

Bilbo
10-28-2007, 11:12 AM
if i were jarkko i would probably not even going to play. he should throw in the towel after the 1st game played. it will be a very boring and one-sided final.

when was the last time we had such a one-sided vote? :lol:

OK I gotta go now so I can get back in time for the fabulous Fed performance in the Basel final. :kiss: Talk to you later.
P.S. I am still hurt you dumped me for Yana. :(
