I would love to see him win it, but with the way he is playing I don't know. :confused:

I think he'll bounce back and win, well at least that's what I hope

I wouldn't be surprised if he goes out first round or if he wins it all. It's basically in his hands and in his head.

gosh... what a couple of exhibition matches will do to your fanbase :eek:
either that or some wishful thinking, roddick or agassi fans voted for those first round departures...
even if he plays as badly as he did in any of his exhibitions, i think he will do okay...

NO IDEA! I don't think he'll go out first round, though.

I voted QF -- that's a safe "middle of the road" answer. :)

this is for OZ right? I hope he makes the qrts. I just hope if he loses he goes out with a bang fighting to the death. Q, you looking forward to the Andre match? When it is? I think Andre will win in 2 sets. I just hope its not windy and Roger cleans his game up a little. I would like to see him win this title, but if not then ANDRE ALL THE WAY!!!!!!

I believe Federer will beat Andre. The other players may be showing form better than Federer, but it may probably even help Federer concentrate more and play better. No one was tipping him to win the Masters Cup either but he came through without making noise about his game.

For tonight's match, there is no reason for Federer not to win it. Whatever Agassi's form may be. Federer has all the tools necessary to take out Andre in straights. My prediction: in 3 sets.

Isn't this thread about the US open?

My prediction is Andre in 3 sets but I hope I am wrong

:) Maybe we should start a new thread for this, esp since it's now 2004.

hmm I'm no good with predictions so I just hope he'll get over that dam first round ;)

Yes Dirk, I REALLY look forward to Andre and Roger's match-ups, especially after seeing the electricity and brilliance that can result in a match like their Masters Cup round robin. I believe they are two most gifted players out there. Geniuses.

As said before, Roger has the tools necessary to beat Andre. But the problem with facing Andre is that you have to keep those tools at a high level for the whole match, because AA will not give you many free points and will always put pressure on you with his groundstrokes. Anyway, hope the two of them produce some more classics before Andre retires!

That's OK faboo, I also didn't notice that it said US open, lol!

I think we could just keep the thread as it is. It will remain near the top of the list througout the next couple of weeks, and people will probably figure it out...

i really agree. players with a bigger game always have the capacity to create the win... but andre is pretty damn consistent, and pretty powerful if i do say so myself.

however, if roger plays like he did in any of his matches in houston, i don't think anyone can beat him when he's playing that well. i have never seen so many second serve aces or completely blind luck-looking winners in my life.

Yes, but Rogi's not playing well at the moment so let's hope he steps it up big time for AO... so who IS playing well now? AA for sure, as he always does this time of yr, Pandy also, Carlos [better leave some of that great form for the AO, pls!], who else? Rafa not bad...

We need Rogi and Juanqui to both play well at the AO and also Marat.

Come on, Rogi! ;)

AA will want to win again -- it's his fave slam and they love him there... he trains like a fiend and yes is very consistent and plays high % tennis... he's worked out his strategies fr yrs of experience and knows everything that's going on out there... so beware!

LOL, I was wondering why you are discussing the USO so early. Yeah Rogi doesn't play too well at the moment from the reports I read. But it is the start of the season, so it is normal to be a bit rusty. Not everyone can be superhuman like Agassi, play so well after offseason. Here's hoping Rogi get a nice early draw in AO so he can find his groove :)
