Federer will prevail and go on to win the title. I just hope it will be a good match.

Federer. As much as I like Canas, he just doesn't have anything to hurt Fed with.

Don't care either way, as long whoever wins this match, wins the title.

Federer!!! Does anyone know which semifinals match ESPN is televising on tape-delay tomorrow? If not both, I would assume Roddick-Hewitt one, but just want to make sure.

Big servers like Safin, Roddick or Ljubicic can hurt Roger. Canas can't IMO. Federer in straight sets.

Purely big servers cannot hurt Federer e.g Roddick & Karlovic. Canas cannot hurt Federer because he is outgunned by Federer in every aspect. So, Federer in 2.

I wasn't clear on what I meant,sorry. A big server can control the points on his own service game and keep the match close. Of course he needs more than a big serve to beat Federer. But he at least has a chance. If you get to the tiebreak a lot can happen. I don't think Canas has a realistic chance because Federer will control a lot of the points.

I think it can be said this way, a big server is not bound to hurt Roger, but if you want to hurt Roger you must have a big serve.

Ivo Karlovic has pushed Federer closer than Roddick has recently. As to whether I am joking, it's up to the individual to work it out for themselves.

The reason I put this disclaimer in is I have to clarify these things for the general population.

Does Roddick have a big serve? Yes.

Can he hurt Roger?
Yes, he can=a big server can hurt Roger
No, he can't=a big server is not bound to hurt Roger

So I'm well grounded there ;)

OK. Andy Roddick wasn't a good example. Still I think Roddick could hurt him if he would be smarter on the court. And if Roger is a little bit off like in last year's Wimbledon final Roddick has a chance. Roddick probably should have won that match IMO.

Roddick played near his best and Federer was nowhere near it and look at the end result. What ifs don't cut the mustard I'm sorry.

Cañas loves to play this times of matches, against the best, in the biggest stadium with alot of people, im sure cañas will play a great match, but is federer's game that will decide another semifinal defeat in a big one in the year or advancing to play once again a final.

I have to agree, it all depends on how Roger comes out. From what I have seen of Canas he is a player to be respected and if Roger comes out with the urge to win then I will say Roger. But if Roger is having an off day than anything can happen.

Having said that I hope its Rogi in 2 sets. Allez roger

OK. You're right.

Not exactly. Andy was in the zone during the first half of that match then the rains came and Roger regrouped. Andy didn't regroup and lost his edge. Roger played much better in the third and fourth sets and deservedly won. But even the other players have acknowledged that if the rain delay hadn't happened, there likely would've been a different Wimbledon champion. :)

Anyway, if Roger dares to lose a set to Canas today does that mean Roger now sucks on hardcourts and isn't "all that"? (continuing Adam's logical conclusion from another thread.) :p :lol:
