I know, Roddicks match isnt over yet, but I believe that he'll reach the finals. That Final would be ridiculously easy for Federer, a straight sets win IMO.

Better than a moonballing show like today's. Youzhny made the tournament all the better for the audience.

I don't know - with Roddick in this sort of form it could be a very interesting match.

Rafa = Fed Killa

So much hatred against Nadal just because of the 6 crucifictions.

Roddick hasn't had this much confidence in ages. I don't know the last time I saw him pull off some of the shots he is tonight. I still think Federer would win, mind you, but it might be interesting. :)

I hate Nadal but that's not because I love Federer. I like Federer, that's right, but my favorite player isn't him. So stop that.

I doubt it - Federer would give Youzhny far less to attack and would get on top of him relatively easily.

I think Roddick as he is could make it competitive if he held serve pretty easily - his backcourt game is looking the best it ever has right now.

He still isn't hitting the forehand well but the other parts of his game are looking better. I just find it amusing as to what this poster wants. First of all Roddick hasn't even won his match and hasn't beaten Youzhny so its useless to make these kinds of threads.

Oh, so Mirnyi is good now? Please, he SUCKS. And you have a problem with Nadal, becuase he is a moonballer, please, he is very talented, and quite frankly his physical game has as much merit as Federer's talent, or Mirnyi's serve. These guys "gifts" are half worked for, half born with.....

Fed got his work cut out for him against Blake, he needs to play better then he did against Gisquel, otherwise he will be surprised and will be heading home!

They actually planned it like this on purpose. They knew it was going to rain on days when Federer plays so they decided to put Roddick on the other side of the draw.

Thats precisley why Roddick HAS to take away AT LEAST a set off Federer. If not, it just proves that he will NEVER beat him again. I think that if Roddick played his best game, he has a shot. I dont believe he will, which is why I think that might be very boring, and routine-ish.

Get a life. Mirnyi's not being discussed here.

The only talent your favorite moonballer has is running, because technically he doesn't exist. Today his volleys were embarassing, to say the least, as they always are.

What can I do if really good players are born with talent and develop the technical, not only the physical, part of the game.

They did more than that. They personally called in the hurricane just for USO.

Don't you know that the USTA planted a dust storm across the sahara a few weeks ago, blew it over the Atlantic, warmed the ocean, and blew Ernesto over Florida and NY? It's so obvious how much they want Andy to win that they'll create a hurricane to stop Fed AND Blake from having a shot. :rolleyes:

Oh, I HAVE A LIFE. It seems that reaction just pushed your buttons. Oh and TODAY his volleys were bad? Did you know Nadal volleyed more than Federer in the WIMBY final?

Saying that Nadal only runs is quite stupid too. He has an awsome forehand, and the best running backhand passing shot of any player currentlt on tour. His fighting spirit is definelty a BIG attribute in his game. It is just wrong to assume that tennis is only forehands, backhands and the service game (which he has improved too).

Anyway, Nadal is better than Mirnyi, dont you think? Oh no, Mirnyi has a huge service game, that has much more merrit than Nadal's running around. Hmm, it seems to me that Mirnyi is tall, that helps him out a bit dosent it?

Why don't YOU GET a LIFE? Hard to find one?

You never know, Blake could upset Federer so watch out. But if not, I have faith that Andy could bring it to Roger.

I'm sure a Federer vs Roddick final with Federer eating Roddick would not be more boring than a Federer vs Nadal final had been in which Nadal would have owned Fed ;) :p

Frankly I don't see how Nadal would have beaten Roddick even if he'd made it past Youzhny. Not the way he was playing. So sadly as a Rafa fan...I agree :(

Sure, I agree. I was mainly joking a bit anyway :lol: I said it myself some days ago that Nadal to me did not seem to have the form to reach/win the final.

:eek: Well they should have refunded my money for sure in that case! :p

Blake/Roddick would be perrrrfect...although I haven't seen a Roddick/Fed match in while and maybe Jimbo would have some good advice for that one...

:haha: you guys are so funny. His forehand is ridiculous. A moonball that stays short and outside clay, is pounded by everyone. Youzhny Running backhand... :haha: you're betraying yourself.

I'm not comparing him with Mirnyi, even though the Belarusian is far more talented and technical. If the tournament had a grass and carpet season as long as the clay season is right now and they haven't slowed everything, he would have a lot more results than he has. Even though, he'll never be called a moonballer, as a certain player will always be.

I feel if Yoosh gets into the Final, he'll suddenly come unrattled and lose someting like 2-6, 4-6, 3-6.

Federer approached the net 33 times and Rafa 18 times. This is a downright lie.

His fighting spirit is definelty a BIG attribute in his game. It is just wrong to assume that tennis is only forehands, backhands and the service game (which he has improved too).

Agree with this. Nadal has a lot to his game and shouldn't be discredited.

Yep, you're right.

Net Approaches: Federer 21 of 33 = 64 %
Net Approaches: Nadal 12 of 18 = 67 %

T'was a good match, contrary to what I originally thought. Still, there was no point in the match that you could say "SHIT, Fed may lose today". It was pretty certain (I say 95%) that fed was going to win that final, in that sense, the outcome of the match, was a bit boring, because Fed is winning too many GS, all his merit of course.

Yes Stebs, I was mistaken when I said that Nadal went to the net more than Federer. I was a little angry with you-know-who.

Thanks Radics for pointing out that Nadal was more effective on net on that Final.

At 1 set a piece, triple break point on Roger's serve at 3 all and andy playing as well as he was, you were THAT certain that Federer wins?

Surely at 6-2 4-6 5-5 the result was not a foregone conclusion. Of course Federer was the favourite but lets not forget a point here and there and things could've been different. Roddick had triple break point and missed them all. How would the match have panned out if he hadn't been foiled?

As for Nadal more effective at the net. I'm afraid not. In fact, in most matches the player who approaches the net least tends to win more points at it. This is because the less a player approaches the net the more likely it is that he is only approaching on a sure thing.

For a recent example look at Youzhny, who rarely approaches the net, versus Roddick, who approaches fairly often. In their semifinal Youzhny approached less than half the amount that Roddick did and yet has a far higher percentage.

Federer would have won, Blake was the toughtest player Federer faced, even though he played like crap that day (he was practically given the first set on a golden plate (in the tie break) and he seemed to have said "im not hungry"). Roddick won the second set because Federer had only ONE crappy service game, that cost him the set...

As for the Wimby match, I was simply talking about the fianal and that nadal had a better net percentage.
