Ollie always gives Fed problems. I think Fed will sneak by in three like he did at IW.

You're right, but this is grass which should make matters easier for Roger, and even not yet playing at his best, I think he can win this in two close sets.

Ah, but you didn't factor in Roger's second set blues. ;)

Fed should play better at this point. Fed in two.

Normally I would say Fed in 2 against Oli on grass but Fed looks very fatigued to me. He just seems so drained, and given their crazy matches, Oli just might sneak a win. I hope Fed will pull through though :D

I don't know about that. Fed leads 4-0 in H2H and only lost a set in the most recent encounter. Otherwise the scores look pretty straightforward:

2006 ATP Masters Series Indian Wells R32 Federer 3-6 6-2 7-5
2005 US Open Hard R32 Federer 6-3 7-6(6) 6-2
2005 ATP Masters Series Cincinnati R16 Federer 6-3 6-4
2005 ATP Masters Series Miami R64 Federer 6-3 6-1

What's problem actually.... http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/headtohead/head2head.asp?player1=federer&player2=olivier+rochus

Rochus is too small to beat Fed. Noone players under 177 cm capable to beat Fed in 3 years. I think the smallest player in that terms was Gasquet when he hammered Fed in MonteCarlo, he was still 178cm. so....

Fed in 2

Sorry, but that has got to be one of the most ridiculous statistics I've seen used to predict an upcoming match.

Federer should win this in 2, but Rochus can be surprisingly tough at times.

:haha: What an argument! Bravo!

And now for a cogent argument - Ollie has played Fed since they were juniors, he is a fast mover and a great ball striker. In fact, for a guy so "small", he has a great serve.

I said he will give Fed problems and not that Ollie will win.
