Who wins? They played twice, both matches on hardcourts won Nole but 4 tie-breaks in 7 sets...

I think D'Joke 6-3 6-7 6-2.

Normally, Nole in straights
but we have 2008 year, let's say Fish to win 2-1 :rocker2:

I don't know why, maybe because of the scoreline from Fish vs. Federer, but I haven't a really good feeling for tomorrow.
I hope for Djokovic in 2 or 3 (vote for 3), but I think Fish will win this final in 3 sets... :unsure:

Ahh noo, Destroy him, Nole! :p

I agree on having three sets but it is hard to imagine nole loose tie break. I think Novak 3-6 7-6 6-2

Last time when Djokovic was big favourite against big serve american, he lost from Rodick. I think it could happen again, because it often goes that way when most people on MTF thinks someone is clear favourite :)

Fish will kill him.

Literally. One of his 200mph serves will kill Nole.

I wonder if there are bets being taken on when, not if, Fish becomes the new world number 1.

Fish is playing quite well here and I guess he can take a set but don't think he'll do more than that.
Id say Nole in 3

Cat123
03-23-2008, 01:28 AM
Novak in 2. Mardy was awesome tonight, but Djokovic is on fire and Federer played like crap. His form won't last. I hope for a clsoe match though :yeah:

If Djokovic plays his best, Fish doesn't stand a chance. Fish is not good defensive player and Djokovic will use that to catch the fish. Hewitt was there, Nalbandian was close, Novak will not miss the opportunity. :)

Novak 7-6,6-4

If I understand you correctly, you just tried to tell someone to go die, but without disrespect.

Not the brightest in the bunch, are we?

Anyways, I think Novak will take it 2-0. He will start messy, but he'll up his game just enough to win.

I think that's a pretty good bet.

Fish's service games have been insane lately.

It would be a great match.

Never mind, Nole in 2.

Fish = Tsonga....... Hence Nole wins the final again like in the AO.

I think Djokovic will win like 6-4, 6-4, or 6-3,6-2.

I'd love to see Mardy complete his Cinderella run by winning this title but I think the occasion of being in his first AMS final in five years will be too much for him to handle. Hope I'm wrong.

Fish winning would be hilarious and good for the game, this not coming from a fan of the big doofus at all.

Huge TB which will be 21-19.

Djok in straight set, No doubt about it, Even I hope Fish win

Djok is 100% a better player. He's getting close to No 2, even No 1

It would be great to see Fish win but Djoko probably will. Something like 7-6 6-2

Maybe. Only a tiebreak like this would salvage this abortion of a final. Both of these guys have boring, boring games. I am disgusted, although I have to admit that a Roger-Djokovic final would be worse, assuming that Roger would get ***** 6-0, 6-1 (how could he not, playing the way he is at the moment).

Well this has been the tournament of the Fish, the sexy forehand, the even sexier socks and the gazelle like movement. Well it's not like we haven't had boring finals before. When Fed and Nadal play finals that was far from interesting tennis.

Djokovic handled the GS occasion, when he was expected to win, though that was not easy for him. As for their games, well Djokovic apart from maybe serve, just does everything better.

I have only had passing interest in this event and Miami is the same.

I just can't stand that leg shaving prick...ever since that Mathieu incident where Fish called him something like "f****** French"...Guy is a real jerk. Roddick is an ANGEL compared to this asshole. So hopefully Novak in 2...but stranger things have happened this week.
