I would love to watch a repetition of last years french open final with guille and gaudio but i would also like to see a nadal-coria match.

Nadal-Safin would be exciting. I guess it is highly unlikely, but that would definitely a match to watch. Both players played good first round matches and have the shots, but there are other players waiting...

Federer-Safin, to put Marat back in his place. I'd also like to see another Federer-Coria final on clay, hopefully Guille can get that far.

Federer vs. Safin

gaudio - safin

that would be one terrific final!!

Montanes vs Seppi is the only final fit enough to grace a tournament of this quality. As Rebecca once observed in her signature way back when, Montanes is the king.

I would love to see Federer - Safin just so that Federer can prove he can beat him.

Clearly not trollsRus; it's filled to capacity.

Nadal-Coria for me. I'd be pleasantly surprised if Nadal made the finals, though.. and somewhat surprised with Coria given that it's been a while ;)

I had forgotten about that signature. Hm, yes, I suppose that Montanes-Seppi would be a fitting final.

NADAL-SAFIN!!! Oh my!!! :bounce: Much happiness here. :crazy:

I'll be happy with Federer-Safin, too.

I'll be real happy as long as it's Safin-alklgjadpafjgaljgsf. :D

Anybody vs. Safin, preferably Nadal so that I can see my favorites. Federer would be good too so that Marat can beat up on him again.

I would say Moya vs Gaudio, but this can't happen anymore.

Is Safin vs Gaudio a mathematical possibility ?

Why wouldn't it be? They're opposite in the draw, right?

haha, me too. And for once i'll finally have coverage of something so yeah i hope he'll make it through the final.
I've voted for Federer-Safin...to see who beats who :p but Federer-Coria, Safin-Nadal, or Coria-Nadal would be just as good. :cool:

I don't have any idea, I still didn't see the draw. Good to know that this possibility exist.

I want to see the backhand show :)

Federer vs Coria. Federer defeated defending champion Coria last year in Hamburg, so it would be nice to see Federer dethroning him once again, lol. I actually only want Federer to get to the final if he is sure to win the title, so I don't know. I definitely prefer Coria over Safin any given day but it's still a doubt if Coria can get that far.-

*julie*
04-12-2005, 09:37 PM
Definitely Fed-Safin :yeah:
Or whynot Safin-Nadal :worship:
Nadal-Fed would be nice too :rolleyes:
It's up to them !

savesthedizzle
04-12-2005, 09:40 PM
I picked Nadal-Coria, but Nadal-Safin would be fine too. I'd rather not see Federer/Safin, just because I don't want to get bored with the matchup this spring when it's likely to happen all summer long.

Fedex
04-12-2005, 10:28 PM
Federer-Safin would be nice and a Gaudio-Coria final would be interesting after last year's RG Final.

this is a very silly question, but i thought safin's best surface was hardcourt, except a lot of people say clay - which one is it do you think?

Well Safin says that clay is his fave, but I think he's pretty damn tough on carpet.

Ferrero Forever
04-13-2005, 05:00 AM
I just want a final with Ferrero in it-and i hope it's against Mantilla (i'm not even sure if he's playing this tournament or not, but it would be nice.) Seriosly, i would want Ferrero Coria-though i'm pretty sure they're on the same side of the draw.

NATAS81
04-13-2005, 05:01 AM
mantilla is playing and has a tough next match, but has great chances to win.

This is his 2nd match of the tourney I believe.

As for JCF, he's got a long way to go but 7-4 in 04 on clay.

It's not possible. If they're to meet, it's gonna be in a semifinal. I want Federer to take this title, so I'm not sure I want this match to happen even though I like Nadal more than his possible opponent in the quarterfinal, Gaudio. :eek:

04-14-2005, 05:17 AM
Safin-Federer or Safin-Gaudio.
THe first because it would be interesting how Marat will do against Roger on clay. THe second because Gaudio is a great clay-courter.

Gaudio-Zabaleta :)
Zabaleta is out with an injury, so I change: Gaudio vs Coria
I hope that GAUDIO continues in this way. From RG to now, except by his retirement in Acapulco (injury), he has made final in all the clay tournaments he have played in Clay:
RG, Bastad, Stuttgart, Kitzbuhel, Viña del Mar and Buenos Aires

Experimentee
04-14-2005, 02:54 PM
I dont see Safin beating Federer on clay, but we will just have to wait and see.

I'd give Safin the edge on clay. His game is better suited to the surface. Dont forget he was having those great matches with Guga at his peak in clay TMS events, and winning some of them.

Federer vs Ferrero. I really want Fed to face Coria, but I wish some luck for Ferrero after all injuries and problems. Federer vs NAdal in the semi finals will be the highlights of the tournament, but obviously Gaudio could win against NAdal.

Their h2h record doesn't indicate that:

Germany Clay F Federer 6 1 6 3 6 4
2002 RUS v SUI WG Rd 1, Clay, RR
Moscow, Russia Clay RR Federer 7 5 6 1 6 2
2001 Rome TMS, Clay, R32
Italy Clay R32 Federer 4 6 6 4 7 6

Federer is 3-0 with 2 of those victories very one-sided. Furthermore, Federer also has win over Kuerten on clay (2002 Hamburg)

Furthermore Federer has 2 tms titles and 1 TMs final on clay (exactly as Coria!). Also Safin has not won a clay title since 5 years ago! I can't take how people constantly forgets Federer's achievment on clay! :(

Safi nhasn't won a clay title since 5 years ago and even so I constantly hear that he has an edge against Federer on clay and that he will close the gap between them during the clay season. :rolleyes:

04-14-2005, 07:47 PM
Marko you are right. Safin fans don't seem to realize that meathead marat if he can't overpower you then how will he win? Outsmart you? :rolls: Roger will likely never lose to Marat on clay unless there is something seriously wrong with him.

NATAS81

Now that Safin is out I'd probably have to go with Ferrero (great comeback story) vs Nadal or Gaudio, two of my favorite clay courters.
