Your top 3 favorite loses SF, who do you hope Wins the Final?

06-07-2012, 12:10 PM
Your favorite top 3 player (Djokovic, Nadal, Federer) loses in the semifinal at any tournament, and the remaining top 2 players are in the final. Who do you hope wins?

Choices:

Loser Djokovic: I hope Nadal wins.
Loser Djokovic: I hope Federer wins.
Loser Djokovic: You win, you lose, I don't care.

Loser Nadal: I hope Federer wins.
Loser Nadal: I hope Djokovic wins.
Loser Nadal: I've lost my passion, I don't care.

Loser Federer: I hope Djokovic wins.
Loser Federer: I hope Nadal wins.
Loser Federer: Look, does it matter? I don't care.

No Top 3 Favorite: I hope to see a great match.

Polls only have max of 10 choices. So "other" isn't a choice in the poll, use the I don't care option if you wish.
You can make a poll choice, but of course you're free to elaborate in your text response discussion. I generally prefer that to polls anyway.

Respectfully,

Polls only have max of 10 choices. And no combo options

That's the "other" option, Mr. Groove. If more choices were allowed in the poll I might have included it ;)

And I share your sentiment. The hard working man has done so well, a little luck to share in the Slam glory would be a nice finishing touch to his career.

Sorry Mooza. If you read the original post it was not meant to be Roland Garros specific, but top 3 specific for any tournament in general. If your favorite of the top 3 lost and the other top 2 players made the final, which would you pick?

However, many people have chosen to make this question specific to Roland Garros and add Ferrer to their wish list. That's fine :) I'm interested in the opinions more than the poll. Thanks.

This is my order of preferences for the title. Novak is the only top 3 player that I like, so I always root for him when it comes down to one of the three winning; don't mind Nadal and Federer much, only really undesirable outcome would be Ferrer winning.

If Nole wins i already see titles 'Few more slams and Nole will be GOAT' ' Will Nadull retire' i will troll like crazy etc. IF Ferer wins...idk its beyond craziness.

It might be your opinion, but it's a fucked up one which reinforces the fact that you don't think like most sane people.

Most people want Federer to beat Nadal because a win over Nadal in a slam on Nadal's favorite surface with Federer over 30 years of age and Nadal more-or-less in his prime would silence the obnoxious Nadaltards for a hell of a long time, and more or less settle the GOAT debate.

And why would you root so heavily against Ferrer?

Most people would gladly see such an unassuming hard worker who has plugged away at it in the background for years finally be handed the ultimate prize (all the more deserved as he would need to beat the king of clay in his own backyard).

But, no, Mark Lenders, you don't think like normal people at all - you only support petulant ballbashers.

No one who lets their preferences be dictated by something as stupid as how Nadaltards will react or even more stupid like the so-called GOAT debate is in any way sane.

It is very simple, I don't particularly like either Federer or Nadal; if it were up to me, neither would win this Slam or any other. But unfortunately, it isn't up to me and those guys are still going strong. I guess I like Nadal slightly more than Federer so if comes to those two, I want Nadal to take it.

I think there's another question which might be asked : Fed and Djokofans, are you afraid of the humiliation on sunday if your favorite wins the semifinal ?

Well personally as a Fedfan, I can say I feel now I'm ready and used to that :lol: Last year was tough because there was some hope but this year Nadal gives no hope and I'm just ready for it, just try to win more games than 4 like in 2008 Fed :lol:

But if I was a Djokofan, I would be a little bit afraid of the final to say the truth :unsure:

PS : my answer Fed loses, I hope Djoko wins, let's hope for a miracle, it's Djoko against Nadal after all :shrug: (or well of course Ferrer winning would be an extraordinary story, a story to cry :drool: , even more than when Arantxa Sanchez won :cool: )

Even if Fed were to be humiliated on Sunday (which I don't think can be worse than 2008 given his improved ability to hang in there), I can console in the fact he's defended last year's points and not allowed Djoker to run away with the rankings. It won't be too bad though as I have never felt Fed stood a chance this year. Last year was bad as he had a genuine one and threw those first two sets away.
