Um, I was going to call it the battle of the one slam wonders then I remembered that Roddick has been in 3 slam finals and has won numerous titles on every surface...


haha...

um, sure hes done all that, but at the end of the day, hes won the same # of slams as Gaudio. :shrug:

Gaudio clearly is a wonder, just like ToJo...right place right time playing out of his mind...got lucky in a final. Roddick has been a contender for many years, no one would consider it a wonder if he won another slam.

Anyywwways....besides that little side debate.

I'll take Roddick in 2.

Roddick will win in 2 easy sets.

Roddick should normally have the advantage on the one clay he does well on, but Gaudio will want to give it a last honest try.
Gaudio to win, it would be a shame if it went any other way.

Johnny Groove
05-08-2007, 09:52 PM
Expect a strange scoreline. Some combination of tiebreaks and 6-0/6-1 sets both ways :lol:

I'd be surprised if its something like 6-4, 7-5, or something normal

Anyway I am looking forward to sleeping through it :D

Gaudio clearly is a wonder, just like ToJo.

Gaudio's slam was expected by me, while ToJo was a real one slam wonder. So it doesn't make sense to compare those two. :shrug:

Expected??? After losing the first two sets on the final against the favorite player? After beating an injured Nalbandian on the SFs while the world thought it would be the other way?
Wow... you're a guru...

This is a match that I need to see for the :spit: and :haha: factor... but I can't (stupid intern program :ras: )

Roddick could win this (all we know that Rome is a fake red clay or a red hardcourt :lol: ) but clay is clay after all and Gaston should win.

Roddick in two as long as he can stand upright.

Seriously, Roddick beat Berdych earlier this year on clay and Gaudio is nowhere near the talent level of the Bird Man right now.

What makes you think Gaudio can even win a set?

VolandriFan
05-09-2007, 08:14 AM
Gaston of course. And Andy's just as much of a one slam wonder as Gaston is. Gaston has won 8 titles on clay, been top 5 and established himself as one of the best claycourters, so he's hardly a wonder either. You can't use the excuse that Andy is a better all surface player, because Gaston wouldn't still be a one slam wonder if he won RG again anyway.

May I ask why you are the Gaston Gaudio forum umpire when you don't support him/believe in him? It's not a dig at you or anything, I'm just curious.

Why say it's not a dig. then? Just ask the question. As for my answer, context is important. I am not going to be a silly fanboy, cause I like someone.

Ok, so you are a fan. A fan striving to be a realist. Well I can safely say that Gaston only winning one game is not a realistic prediction. His form has been very off of late, but he still took a set off Djokovic and beat Fish, and on clay, I don't see Roddick scoring a bagel and a breadstick against Gaudio. Especially given his blatant lack of match play.

It's almost as if you go out of your way to sound unbiased.

In other words you still don't get the context of my original post? Do, I really have to explain it you?

You think I haven't see any of his matches or something? You almost sound serious.

Well if I didn't "get the context" of your post the first time I read it, do you think I'm going to understand it the second time?

The thread starter asked a question, and you answered that question. What other context is there to get?

It's clay, so Roddick will only win if:

1. The opponent tanks
2. The opponent is injured
3. The opponent sucks

So since we have case no.3 for sure and a chance of having case no. 1 here, Roddick will win.

Even though Gaudio isnt playing his best, Roddick isnt a good claycourter, as Gaudio is. So my bet goes to Gaudio in 3 :rocker:
