This is a serious poll and will predict the result more accurately than a poll with four options. The results of those "fair" polls always get skewed by the Roger-haters. :)

That's the thing.
What is "a terrific serving day" and when is that going to happen?
It's not like he double-faults way more than he usually does or misses the first serve one too many times, or the mph drops down so low.
His first serve percentage is usually still very high against Federer, who just returns so well.

So I don't think his serve is the answer to the question.
It's either Federer playing way below his level or Roddick not missing anything at all for two or three sets.

He hasn't been serving bad when losing to Fed. It's just that Roger reads his serves very well. Roddick will have to hope that Fed is slightly off.

Roddick finally would play Federer early in the tournament as opposed to semis or finals. Would it make a difference? Probably not. Federer actually takes these matches vs ROddick seriously and I expect him to be on point. The only shot that Roddick really has is to be perfect on serve and do well at net.

Federer wins 7-5 6-3.

fed in two unless jimbo has made a huge impact on andy's game in which case fed in 3. actually I take it back. that jimbo has made a difference to andy is a given. the question is whether those differences (mental and gameplay wise) can withstand the test of self belief that roger always poses for andy.

if u were to look at thier best matches
u wouldnt have to think to much who will come out the winner
thou this is a new match, another chance
like roddick & many of his camp & fans say

but seeing he actually served & volleyed against ljubo for much of the time
its clear the influence Connors is having on him
maybe he needs to change his tactics as well improve his eratic play when he is down.
if he were to serve & volley will that surprise & unsettle federer if roddick manages to get a good start
this is a great chance for roddick, whether he has to do something that he hasnt done before & attack federer, make the point shorter.

I don't normally cheer for somebody to lose, but it WOULD be nice to silence all of the smugness. I think Andy's due. The first thing he has to do is acutally believe he can do it.

I'm just saying. That being said, I voted Fed in 3. :)

Well I'm glad that roger doesn't get smug about his andy victories...he takes andy seriously. I hope andy serves volleys like he did against lubo and that it brings out a similar game in roger. Would be an interesting change and a matchup that roger would win anyway.

Actually, I think it's one of the things Federer does best. He doesn't ever underestimate his opponents. He plays his game no matter who is on the other side of the net.

Also, I didn't mean Federer was smug, I meant some of his fans on the board are to just assume that Roger is going to keep beating Andy forever.

This is a serious poll and will predict the result more accurately than a poll with four options. The results of those "fair" polls always get skewed by the Roger-haters. :)

I say Roddick in 3. My bookie has Roger as "only" a 14 to 1 favorite. He is typically more heavily favored. In addition, I could parlay this if I choose (very rarely allowed with Federer matches). Also, you can bet up to $14,000 for a max $1,000 win. Usually the max win allowed on tennis matches is $300. I see a lot of money lost on Roger tomorrow.

This may sound like a conspiracy theory, but I say Roddick wins because 1) It will create more interest in the TMC (hey Roger lost!!!), 2) The loss will be meaningless to the overall results (Roger still advances and still wins TMC), 3) Vegas, etc. will make a KILLING when Roddick wins.

The following would be an interesting semi-final:

Roddick (winner group) vs. Nadal (Runner up)
Blake (winner group) vs. Federer (Runner up)

Federer avoids Nadal over 3 sets.

Yea, I was just thinking that, like Fed purposely loses to avoid Rafa.

Didn't Llendl do that once, I mean throw a match to avoid Jimmy Connors?

If Roddick is going to win over Fed, I definitely think it would be right here right now. with that said, Federer should win this match in 2. He is clearly a superior player to Roddick. And I don't know if Roddick's serve is still kicking as much ass as it was during the US Hard Court Season.

Nah, Andy is a ruthless bastard. He will bagel Fed in the first then get bored, lose his serve, break back and eventually win the second 7-5. It won't go to the 3rd.

Sh*t, I misread this the first time. I thought it said if Andy plays the match of his life he will win the match in 8 games. I thought to myself, winning a match in 8 games would truley be the match of your life, which is why I thought it was so funny.

It's like telling your opponent at a tennis tournament "I am going to kick your a$$ so hard I should only need 8 games to close out the match". Makes no sense, but it could be funny nonetheless.

I really wasn't intending to be smug...

It's just a factual poll which excludes the unrealistic options i.e. Roddick victories.

I mean, if you had a poll saying "Who is the worst player ever to step on court?" you wouldn't include every single option, would you? You wouldn't include Sampras or Borg. I'm just thinking along similar lines, that's all.

I understand what you meant....but truly...it isn't outside the realm of possibility, is it? It's more probable than say......Massu beating the Rog-man. Right? And last I recalled that unlikely event occurred. That's what I love about tennis ----- there is no such thing as a "sure thing". And even the closest we have (namely Roger) sometimes surprises us.
