Fed to win! He's peaking at the righ time! I like his chances at the US Open. I only see Nadal to be favorite against him, purely for matchup reasons. Tomas could be a threat too, he's the only one who kind of channels JMDP's huge hitting that can give Fido some big ole trouble.

Anyways, like I said Mardy doesn't stand a chance.

What a joke of a draw for Federer. Could he have gotten it any easier? Worst Cincy ever.

the match won't be as easy as some people are saying, Fish is fit, hungry and is serving from a tree

Yeah Nadal had a hard ass draw! So unfair!

Anyways for the WWW, I think Federer in 2. Fish was good today, but we shouldn't kid ourselves, Roddick should have won. Federer won't make that mistake.

This will be tough match for Fed but I am hoping that the changeup he has tried to employ these past two weeks will serve him well. Marty is showing increased patience and he has a great serve and backhand so Fed needs to find a way to cut errors down while being aggressive.

Fed in 2. Has been pretty serious these 2 masters, could be the changes he's trying to make challenges him and gives newfound motivation. I don't see hardly any seemingly 'lazy' points.

Can't see Fish winning this. His forehand will break down entirely in forehand-2-forehand exchanges with the Fed. I picked Fed in 2.

EDIT: But then again the same can be said for the reverse in backhand-2-backhand exchanges. So, tough call.

What can be favourable for Fish is the schedule as Federer played last evening and the final is scheduled at 12 at noon.I don`t know who decides the schedule but putting an evening session and then the final at noon is pretty much a joke

I don't think the schedule help Fish that much as you words. Fed has a lot more energy leave before the Final.......which he only played two completely match.

Fish need to improve his forehand. Fed is going to win it...........

I`m not saying that Federer is tired or anything like that.
But I`m criticizing the organisers for putting one evening session and noon the next day the final.
Regardless who plays the final it`s clear that at the start of the week no one wanted to be in the second semifinal spot.
Imagine if the second semi would have ended after midnight after a long match and lots of rain delays.
Would the winner of it be in good shape in less then 12 hours time?

Didn't they do basically the same thing in Toronto?

...It is Roger.. One of the fittest guys on the tour. Plus, he didn't play a long match with Marcos and points were not very long. He should not be tired at all.

I mean who seriously thinks Fish is gonna win this. I dislike Roger Federer as much as anyone here and think he's far inferior to Rafa in most ways but Fish? I mean come on.

ugh, unbelievable luck this Federer gets. I swear the organizers somehow rig tournaments for this guy. The easiest tournament win for Roger ever.

Will be very surprised if Fish wins this one, but nevertheless, cheering for Mardy to pull an upset here.

Roger playing much better than when he lost to Fish and Fish playing much worse, plus it's a final which is not Fish's strong suit. Easy title, and when Roger wins the USO he'll have a final and two wins in the biggest American hard court tournaments. Who would have guessed that after Wimbledon :cool:

Fed in 2 . Fish was very lucky to get thru against Murray and yesterday again vs Roddick, when Duck folded like a cheap tent after serving for the match . His luck must run out eventually .
Also his record in finals is kinda poor. 5 wins and 11 losses.He won " less" important ones and lost all high profile finals, including IW 2008 , Cinci 2003 and Olympics 2004. This one against Fed is high profile final again...

bookmark it.

federer has single handedly humiliated american tennis since 2004.
federer has crushed the spirit and soul of american tennis.

Fish has been in scintillating form this summer. He has a 16-1 win loss record. It will be astonishing if Rogi wins this. :eek:

That majority of that winning streak was achieved in Newport and Atlanta - clown tourneys. If it was back-to-back in Toronto and Cincy then that might be different.

Roger will get it done. He's not best buds like Roddick so it won't be handed to him.

Fish could certainly make things difficult for Roger, but I don't see him winning since he's played seven hours more tennis this week plus didn't (in my opinion) play all that great to beat Roddick last match.

I think Fed will win. But if Fish manages to do it, then good for him. These 'other guys' work as hard as the star names and have the same dreams so either man winning is good with me.

Its Roger's to lose really. He has been well rested and should be able to win it. If Fish plays great tennis I see it go to three sets - still with a Fed victory.
