OK, predictions on who will make it to the final. NO POLL, just sane discussion why you think such and such player will make it, nothing simpler.

Right here we go: I forecast a Nadal-Federer encounter.
Why? Tsonga, in my honest opinion, is not likely to defeat the much improved Nadal should he reach the semis. Fed has been longing for a rematch for last year match against nole, and I predict he will take the ascendancy this time round.
So a N-F looks very likely to me.

Much-improved Nadull?

He's just playing clowns, semi-retired and/or tired players... :rolleyes:

Now you mention it, it was pretty much the case last year till Tsonga showed up lol. We might be in for a surprise who knows. Luv da fact da draw's so open though.

This is pretty much the main discussion point in all GM threads right now.

Mods, please obliterate this highly superfluous and hence malignous thread from the face of MTF, thank you.

very likely, it would be the first meeting between Federer and Nadal in a HC Grand Slam final, and I predict Federer will take it in this scenario.

however Tsonga might have something to say about this again ;)

I predict Roger-Rafa also, with Fed taking it in 3 or 4.

Verdasco-Roddick. Should be classic.

If you're going to try and impress everyone with your brilliant command of the english language, I would suggest avoiding made up words. Such as.... Malignous.

I dont know about Rafa beating Tsonga. Did you forget what happened last year? Rafa havnt improved THAT much, he might make it competitive but he wont win. Rafa's draw has been a joke so far. He hasnt even been tested yet and already people are assuming he'll make the final. Its ridiculous.

Verdasco vs Roddick
Simon vs Del Potro

I agree that he has not even remotely come close to being tested. His draw is the easiest of the top 8 seeds. Even easier than Roddick's.

Cos Simon may be an uphill task in the 1st few sets until Rafa can get into the way he wants to play. Well hopefully that happens.

Shouldn't it be English? :scratch:

Why oh yea? Nadal's been playing light outta his mind.
I know he's only come up against tired or retiring opponent, but still he did face stiff opposition. I fancy Tsonga getting the better off him - shud he get past Beau Boi Verdasco - but I jst dont see that happening on recent form - from both players.

I hear u Ruanz. Again this is a very valid point you make.
The trouble for me is, appart from that match against Ljubicic, I havent been much impressed by Tsonga recently. Maybe that's because Blake wasn't much of an opposition I dunno.
Also, Nadal always plays that explosive kinda tennis, so it's easy to be impressed. But yea, he hasnt faced stiff opposition yet. Tsonga might prove to be a huge hurdle to overcome, as was the case last year.

In all honesty, I hope for a Tsonga Fed final, and Tsonga hoisting the trophy lol.

Supposedly he has a stiff back.

I'd really like Tsonga vs Nadal and Federer vs Djokovic with Tsonga and Djokovic making the final and Djokovic winning for a couple of reasons:

1. Would be funny to see same semis
2. The comedy value of MTF if Fed and Nadal lost would be great
3. The comedy value of MTF if Nole won the title would be the above point^10

Exactly.
Some people are also to quick to forget that Nadal got beaten by Monfils on hardcourt only 2 weeks ago....and in straight sets.

As long as Nadal wins I dont care.

Hopefully Nadal V Roddick
Probably Nadal V Fed

Agreed - even though that alone won't make me take this seriously :p

It looks like he's tried to put his email address as his username...
