Here's an interesting match-up we haven't seen in quite a while: The Magician vs .... Mojo man :rolleyes: :lol:

Their last match was in 2000, on the hardcourts in Washington. Andy won 4-6 6-3 6-3.

How dangerous will Fabrice be to Andy? I hope it doesn't happen but do you think this will be the match where Andy, the last seed and the last non-French player, is sent packing?

I like Fabrice but Andy reallyreallyreally needs to win this title. :scared:

If Santoro can take Andy to three on a hardcourt - he may be able to do more on this indoor court. Granted, it was in 2000, but Andy's playing.. :tape: not so well, to put it nicely. :o The crowd will be behind Santoro and he has disposed of his previous opponents rather easily. I still think Andy will win - but it won't be simple. Roddick will have to be patient.

Hmmmmmmm.........honestly Roddick is not the player I would have liked to see Fabrice play in his 1st semi final in over 2 years but I still think he has a chance. Fabrice will put much more pressure on Andy's service games than his three previous opponents. Whether it will be enough and whether he will be able to maintain his own serve against Andy I'm not sure. But I really hope Fabrice can find a way to win this.

My pick is Roddick even his recent performance is not good and his indoor record is not so impressive. Don't ask why!!!

Excuses even before matches stard, gotta love them :bigcry:.

My prediction: Roddick def. Santoro 7-5 6-4. Might go to three sets easily, but I think Andy won't let it go to 3 sets. andy will have time to work out some points and simply not be overpowered by Fabrice so he won't be rushed. he will, however, be slowed down by the annoying game Santoro plays but I think andy will eventually become comfortable with it somewhat and get the breaks when he needs them. I doubt his serve will be broken, Fabrice isn't a huge returner anyways and Roddick's serve seems to be clicking this week.

when he hit some shots he was saying 'there it is' when they went really good and the crowd were starting to boo a bit. I have always liked roddick but i thought it was a bit, i dunno, arrogant.

Andy has been criticised for playing crap in recent times. He has the right to re-afirm himself when he's trying a shot and it works. It has nothing to do with his opponent, he's just praising himself for doing something right.

A French crowd booing? :eek:

I'd have togo with Santoro in 3. There's no way that Roddick can cope with Santoro's volleys and spins right now. Maybe a couple years ago, but his form has gone way down since then.

Yes he should win quite comfortably, but Santoro is quite the pesky gentleman, he doesnt like giving his opponents an easy day at work. :p
