Last year both of them were playing world class tennis, this year both are horrible to tell the truth.

Djokovic in 4.

Federer was awaken by Delpo.
2012 Fed is alive again, for the first time in Roland Garros.

Djokovic showed he could do it again, he's not Delpo, he can deal with difficult moments.

I expect both players playing great, so...

It'd be a 5-setter match, and the winner would be so fucked up, he'd lose in 3 to Rafito.

Federer at 31 would straight set Sampras at 23-25 on clay.

BlueSwan
06-05-2012, 06:19 PM
Honestly, it will be a Pyrrhus victory for either one who wins since its a given that the winner will suffer an absolute annihilation from Nadal in the final. Djokovic would probably hurt the most from this given how he dominated Nadal last year, yet has received a couple of beatings lately. A complete drubbing in the final could giver Nadal the upper hand in their rivalry over the coming crucial months. Less of a problem for Federer who has tried it so many times before that he must be somewhat immune by now.

06-05-2012, 06:25 PM
Please for djoker to get through a match he should have lost he'll be thankful and 100% since they get 2 full recovery days. Im not sure physically how fed is going to pull up after playing 3 consecutive four setters and now a five setter and he's 31 so i wonder.

Federerer should have lost this match only because delpos knee starting to flare up it's obvious delpo was by far the better player.


Federer with last years balls would have had a shot but now with slow ass fluffy balls this will be straight set for djoker. federer is serving horribly and there is no one worse to play than djokovic. Fed won't be able to hit through the court with slow balls and defense of nole.


Anyone expecting RG 2011 is due for a shock.

Nole will utterly flatten federer bc of fed's horrible form, slow ass balls, cool day on friday, and ability to recover faster.

Its a testament to fed's greatness that the number 1 mens tennis player in the world at age 24 playing a guy 31 that its still worth discussing who will win. At this stage, only at wimbledon does fed even have a chance to beat nole.

I think Novak will win in 5 tight sets.

I know I'd be pretty bad after that, heart wants Roger but head says Novak.

Now...
I'm okay with that too. Fed in semis of RG is good for this year. Keep it up and peak for Wimbledon.
There... No mercy.

I think it could be a good,tight match if the weather is good,and the court is dry.But i expect both guys to be struggling if the court plays like today.Lots of back and forth and who plays better at the end wins.
If we want some good tennis,we need to hope for good weather.

Djoker in 3 or 4. In a way I'd like Fed to win, as I like him much more, but then it would just end in an inevitable destruction by Nadal in the final.
Djoker has a much better chance against Nadal, maybe a 5% chance.

Forget the form. I have a feeling that we'll see a very different game from both players from what we have seen so far. IMO, Federer will dominate the rallies as he did in USO 2010 and 2011, and of course FO 2011. If djokovic wins this, he is taking the trophy. A few things just fit.
Ofcourse, much of it is based on intuition rather than reason.

06-05-2012, 07:03 PM
This is going to be awful just like their Rome SF.

Still Novak in 4, the balls helped Federer big time last year, without them he has no chance.

Finally someone who knows what they're talking about. Federer serving with fast balls and with 70% first serve and the match still should have gone to 5 sets last year with likely nole winning that match had it gone five sets. Federer is play terrible tennis right now he really should have lost and been refreshed for the grass and now instead he'll still be pretty tired after getting annihilated on friday. Now he'll get beat down by nole.

Federer:

"I'm very disappointed for Jo. I would have loved to have played him here."

Of course. He would have had a huge shot to win and he played clownga instead of nole.

Fed never ever ever controls the rallies against Novak

Are you on crack? Federer is only NOW unable to dictate rallies bc of his loss in movement, loss of power on his forehand, and the slowing nature of the courts. Check out highlights from us open 2007-2010. Federer had much better movement and a more lethal forehand back then and really mugged up that 2010 match by letting two of those sets go.

Fast forward 2011 and then it was obvious that federer cannot rally with nole particularly at the us open 2011. Might have had a little to do wiht the slow ass courts but more to do with the loss of movement.

And fucking idiots think nole moves better at 25 then when he was 22-24. IF anything it has to do with the slowing of the courts and particularly the loss of movment of federer in their matches that gives the impression of nole moving so much better. Also fed losing his power and ground stroke consistency has also aided in this.

P.S. By the way for anyone wondering. Fireballer = Setsampras.

If it wasn't obvious by his comments, AV picture, I traced his IP address and surprise surprise they are the same.

Pretty hard being between Roger's ears now:

What must I do?
If I lose the semis, I lose 480 points.
If I win the semis, I surely lose the finals and get destroyed again.
If I lose the semis, I lose 480 points but Novak thinks he has the better of me. No way.
I win the semis. I commit the same error and we see what happens in the finals.

Yes. I will try and win the semis. Roger to read "If" by RK and head for the match. :)

FedvsNole
06-05-2012, 08:07 PM
people getting carried away for nothing.

fed has this people.

I think whatever rust nole had will be gone after the tsonga match not to mention the "high" he must be on saving 4 match points. Now the court fed played on today is slower than chatrier that is for sure and being discussed on espn but the point is the balls are heavier than last year, it will be 70 degress farenheit, and the most important thing is fed is serving like shit just like he did in the rome match. The problem is with those kind of conditions the advantage goes to the "grinder" which is nole bc he doesn't have to go for as much trying to just push the ball and let fed make errors since it will be much harder hitting winners is a winnable strategy. For fed to win he would have to play very well and nole kinda bad as even average nole on this court will beat good fed due to fed having to constantly go for shots while nole just has to keep the ball in play and get it to the fed backhand which now is nothing like roland garros 2011 for fed it is just horrid on that wing for fed.


This match will be on Friday, right?

As stupid as it sounds, fed-nole will be played 2nd after nadal-ferrer. Kinda bullshit since with the rain it's feasible that nole-fed dont finish. Hopefully they are not retarded and actually start the matches earlier this year.

Come on, CD, how can Fed have this in conditions where his ball has no penetration. I mean I am not sure what has to happen for him to beat Djokovic on this slow clay. I just don't see it with the form he's had so far.

Djokovic would have to play below average and fed play pretty good to have chances. If they play about the same level or basically if fed doesn't outplay nole by some good margin nole wins bc he only has to keep the ball in play and not really "go" for shots like fed will have to with the slow balls and slow courts and slow weather. With fed's serve turned to shit and seeing what kind of effect having a shit serving day does to fed in their rome match Im giving fed a 0 % chance. In fact, nole will straight set him. Like others have said at least nole will have a shot at nadal wheras fed-nadal is not even watchable.


Now, I know you're a clown but can you at least try? Obviously, Roger was winning when I posted that.

looner step away from the crack pipe asap.


if seppi and tsonga can push nole then so can fed.

If nole can even play at that level he beats fed playing even decently just bc one player is trying to be offensive and anotehr is trying to be defensive and the conditions like the ball, court, weather all favor the defensive player. And fed serving like shit won't even get him a set.

Bump my psychic post after this shit is done. No more comments about a boring match with the conclusion foregone by me. And everyone else should really stop thinking that fed has a chance you will all be bitterly dissapointed when you see this match that federer can no longer beat nole EVER again.

To be fair, both will be running high on confidence, because both turned their matches around by playing unbelievably well...


Djoker was down 2 sets to 1, faced multiple MPs yet somehow got through them all, and then thrashed Tsonga in the decider.


Federer was down 2 sets to 0, surely must have thought it was game over, but then managed to power on to victory, even handing Delpo a bagel along the way.

Teething issues are gone. I expect sustained high quality throughout. :)

Novak better fuckin win this in 3 sets stragiht. He's the frickin #1 player and barely 25 yrs old. He's playing for a chance to have all 4 slams at the same time and make his first french final. This time there won't be any fogini withdrawal and a 4 day gap, the courts are slow as shit, and the balls have been downgraded from fast to slow and heavy and everything here favors nole to win. Yes, nole played a 5 setter but so did federer and at their ages nole will be 100% for sure not so sure about a 31 year olderer even more reason nole should win.


If nole doesn't win in 3 sets its kinda pathetic. With all that nole can gain of course he's the big big favorite and has a lot on the line. If nole were to lose it would be shameful to say the least given where he and his opponenetn are at this point in their careers.

where is this shit coming from. Nole has beat rafa in 3 straight slam finals. Throw out monte carlo and that first set in rome it was 30-30 and nole shot was called out and he would have won that point and possibly that set.


If nole makes it to rafa being pushed this hard and nadal has his cakewalk draw and doesn't see federer on the other side nole has no pressure to win as everyone expects rafa to dominate. Thats when nole is most dangerous.

Nadal going for his 7th RG and nole going to hold all slams, complete the grand slam, and beat nadal for his fourth slam in a row would be great to watch and i'd cheer nole very very hard.

If nole doesn't win in 3 sets its kinda pathetic. With all that nole can gain of course he's the big big favorite and has a lot on the line. If nole were to lose it would be shameful to say the least given where he and his opponenetn are at this point in their careers.

The only person speaking truth in 13 pages of tired drivel. We had the same crap in Rome. It's getting old. All logic being thrown out of the window and basic facts being ignored.

1. World number 1 > World number 3
2. 4 Grandslams in the last 18 months > 0 slams.
3. 25 year old > 31 year old in terms of speed, endurance, stamina etc
4. Nole has only lost ONCE to Fed in SIX meetings.

It's clear anyone who picks Roger despite this overwhelming evidence which clearly points to Nole being the heavy favourite is playing a different game....lol at some fedtards being played like a violin :lol: Victory is NOT possible people. Give it up :wavey:

he does not deserve cowards for fans.

Hope you are right CD. Really do. But head says Novak. He is younger, fitter, stronger and mentally tougher now than the current Federer.
Federer did beat him last year. But he is a year older now and not looking as fresh as he did last year.
He needs to use the slice alot, I feel. He is not going to win the baseline battle with Novak. The advantage he has over Novak is the variety he possesses. He needs to use that instead of just trying to win from the ground with his average backhand

No, and your signature shows enough. And it's not just you. It's always like "Oh he's not leading, he's playing so bad, surely he'll lose now. Or if he even somehow wins and gets in the final, he would get so thrashed by Nadal it would be painful to watch."
FFS show some faith, he's still #3 in the world, not #157 and don't always turn your back on him and give up whenever he's having a bad day or a slow start to the match.

Well, he has a chance. But he's not the favourite, meaning, on balance, I don't expect him to win. Plus I think his chances in the final, slim as they are, are just not worth risking Wimbledon + Olympics over, where he can potentially gain #1 and win #17 which will be huge at this point in his career.

I know Roger does not think that way and I know that carrying good form and confidence from RG is crucial for the grass swing. However, last year's great performance gave him loads of confidence but affected his physical endurance for the grass. This year he can gain loads at SW19 and at the USO as well as on the US HCs. I am just saying, on balance, it's better if he focuses on grass but I'm sure he'll go for the win 100% as he's only 2 matches from #17.

Federer in 2
06-05-2012, 11:17 PM
Djokovic is coming after two five setters, but the surface and the balls are very uncomfortable for Roger.

I think the main factor will be: How is Djokovic's mind set after barely surviving the match against Tsonga?
He might get stronger because of this, and find his best game, but he also might be mentally exhausted.

No 3 setters here. I believe Roger can pull it in 4 or 5.

Come on, CD, how can Fed have this in conditions where his ball has no penetration. I mean I am not sure what has to happen for him to beat Djokovic on this slow clay. I just don't see it with the form he's had so far.



Now, I know you're a clown but can you at least try? Obviously, Roger was winning when I posted that.


Well you have to construct your point. That is what clay court tennis is all about. But if somebody wants to play low margin shots they can always paint the lines. Those would penetrate for sure. Federer is a great clay court player (yes he is!) who is good at constructing his points. He will find ways to set up winners which would penetrate.

Fed will have to cut down on his unforced errors off both wings. Novak's balls will be less penetrating than Delpo's and from what I saw today Fed was holding his own in hard rallies with Delpo. Fed is due a good serving outing and if that is clicking it will become easier for him. Novak is not in top grade form. If Tsonga and Seppi could take novak to 5 sets, Federer has chances.

Yes Novak is the favorite for sure but I can picture out what it would take for fed to win. He has the game and nobody has more tools than him. Just depends on execution, mental strength and stamina.

IF (a big "if") Nadal makes the final, a win over Djokovic would be massive for his confidence. However Federer is a much preferred opponent for obvious reasons. A side benefit would be that Nole wouldn't gain any points from last year. A pair of Nadal Wins & Novak SF losses at RG + Wimbledon would put Nadal at #1.

If (lots of "ifs" here) Federer makes the finals here and at Wimbledon he will almost certainly hold the number 1 spot for one week this summer.

And of course there is the third and very likely possibility of Djokovic winning RG and staying #1.

This is pretty much the situation as it stands and why I'd still want Federer to win any match he plays. The only reason to "want" him to lose would be for his confidence to not be shattered ala 2008 where he himself has admitted the RG loss was too painful and he found it hard to believe he could beat Nadal again. So a win over Djoker and a reasonable loss in the final (I'd be cheering for a win) coupled with a win at Wimbledon is like a dream come true.

I wonder how tired both guys are. Novak played 2 back to back 5 setters. Olderer played a few 4 setters and a 5 setter, though admittedly they were quite short.

Olderer has the advantage of his serve and forehand style of finishing points quickly. Novak has the gluten free diet and magic egg on his side.

Honestly, this match can go either way :shrug:

If Novak has to accomplish the Novak Slam he will have to go through Roger and Rafa, two guys who were the closest to 4-in-a-row. How motivated these two would be to stop Novak?

Federer is thinking " Either I take him out or weaken him enough for Rafa"

Rafa is thinking "It would be good if Rojar takes him out else it will be complicate no?"

Novak is thinking "Sick and tired of this Roger-Rafa nonsense. Im gonna imprint the novak slam by pushing a dagger through both Roger and Rafa once and for all"

Almagro / Ferrer / Murray are thinking "the only way we get the trophy is if we just go and steal it tonight"

lol I think this one too will be a 5 setter. It shouldn't be but I think it will be a messy match.

I think this time around Federer won't come out on top. It's ridiculous to imagine for a millionth time him facing Nadal in the finals. Djokovic isn't the type of player to lose to the same guy back to back to back times etc. He's matured a lot as a player. I can't imagine him losing to Federer in the same tournament. He'd definitely want to avenge that loss last year.

Djokovic will come out in 5 sets.

People don't vote or respond objectively on this site. Just look at the facts. Pretend your favorites are not in the picture. If player X has beat player Y 5 out of the last 6 times they played obviously you would think they are going to win again. Then add that player X thrashed player Y in rome on the same surface and if your being objective you have to go with the player who's been winning more.

WWW = who will win NOT who do you want to win.


If this was a 24-27 year old fed playing this novak yes I would give that fed the advantage. I know a nearly 30 year old fed beat nole but things were different with the balls and his serving that whole tournament was amazing along with his backhand. This is not true from what we've seen this tournment.

But right now even fed i believe said rafa and nole are the favorites.

I really feel focusing on the grass would have been smart. Fed really doesn't need an exhausting match with nole.
Let nole and nadal battle it out. They both had battle scars last time after playing such grueling tennis at the austrlian open and if they meet in the final it will take a toll on both and add to fed's wimbledon chances.

I do favor fed still at wimbledon over nole and feel he's got a chance even against nadal there but it comes down to fed being healthy phyicaly and mentally and focusing on grass.
