You should hedge if you can. Having said that, I expect Andy to win here.

Nando is very dangerous, particularly if he keeps serving at 80%+. Wouldn't surprise me if he wins, especially as Muzza must be knackered by now.

he's facing one of the best return players in the world

Murray usually does well against left handers apart from Nadal. Nando will have his moments but Murray will clinch it.

I don't have the balls to back Nando, but it wouldn't surprise me if Verasco wins.

But yeah, you have a very good point about Murray's return skills.

Murray for the title, hopefully in straights!

Verdasco is a mental midget. As good a final opponent as Andy could wish for really.

Nothing against Nando, but as I want to see Andy in Shanghai, I'm rooting for Andy! :rocker2:

I expect a strange three set match with a lot of momentum swings between these two.

Murray to win.

However, he needs to avoid his form dropping for spells; it could result in defeat.

Andy in 3. I probably shouldn't pick Andy in a final (he seems to have a few issues there) but he seems to be fighting so hard to get to Shanghai that I really think he'll focus and win this. Nando could win if he has a great day, but I think if Andy keeps the head he should win it. Verdasco gave him a few problems in the AO, but I wouldn't expect Andy to blow this now.

I THINK Murray will win. Although I HOPE Verdasco wins (I really don't like Murray either)

I hope Verdasco can win this but I think Murray will in three sets.

Muzza must avoid all brain cramps and i worry that he will have a few, of course Nando is known to have a few in his time as well so it could be a crampfest.

cmon son, 1 more win.

Well I just voted for Murray in 2 and now that I think about it, a third set is likely. Even if Verdasco manages to win a set, he will alleviate Murray's pressure to close it out at the important moments. I foresee an ugly match no matter what though.:silly:

Yay, my first non-introductory post!!!:banana:

I love both, and both need another title.

Slightly rooting for Verdasco more, but if Murray got to Shanghai, perfect. Does Murray have to win St. Petersburg regardless of what he does in Paris to get to China? I'm not a frequent MTF poster, so I've probably overlooked that conversation.

I gotta say I root for Verdasco, but with Murray winning it'll be ok also since he'll be able to play in Shanghai. Verdasco currently as someone stated before is indeed a huge mental midget. So i think it sort of swings Murry's way

I think Murray will need both a title winner at St Petersberg, AND at least reaching semi-finals to have enough points for Shanghai ... that was the last calculation I heard

Nah, that's rubbish. Should he win today, he'd need to out-perform Blake, Robredo and Haas...currently a R3 would suffice, should those 3 all lose their opening match. But yeah, further down the track he may need a SF, especially as Berdman and Gasquet would also be a threat from behind.
