I think he has a chance. Not sure how big a chance, but Andre's playing good ball, it'll be a night match on Ashe (weather-permitting though at this point it's not looking great on Wednesday)... anything can happen under the lights in NYC :)

Yes, Andre has a chance. Clearly Federer is the favorite. But Agassi is not an easy opponent for Federer, Roger has said so himself.

I can't wait for this match! :woohoo:

I think it really just depends on how each will perform on the night. Federer could have a bad night, Agassi great. But one thing is that Agassi HAS been playing his good tennis lately, I mean he got all the way to the 1/4s now? so I have no clue.

Wow, Andre will have to play some great tennis to beat Roger. I'm guessing it will be a 5 setter and Federer is the favorite for sure. But I never underestimate our man Andre :worship:

i think andre has a better chance to win if it is at night w/ the cooler weather
but since it is likely going to rain tues night, who knows when the match will be played

The good news is that when his hip is holding up (which hasn't been the case in the last 4-6 months or so), Andre is still the 3rd best tennis player in the world.

The bad news, however, is that he cannot beat the 2 players who are ahead of him, Federer and Roddick, unless he happens to play his 'A' game while they play their 'B' game or worse. He simply doesn't play well flat-footed; his backhand is not dangerous enough and, quite frankly, as many of his tight games against Sampras, Federer, Coria, Safin, Ferrero, Rafter have proven, Andre doesn't handle pressure all that well. As soon as things don't go his way and he actually has to play some defense for a change, he gets irritated and the overall quality of his tennis drops, complete with erratic serves and UE on the stroke.

Hey if Federer's game is off and Andre is 'on' (see: his game against Pete at 2001 USO), then he actually might pull it out. Unlikely, but I hope I am wrong.

Andre definitely has great chances. It will depend on how both players play, but I think both are pretty even.

Gosh, it's hard to pick. Neither of them has been really tested so far.

Of course, you have to go with the number one player in the world as the realistic winner. From what I've seen, Federer can handle Agassi fairly easily when Federer is playing his best.

For us neutrals, I hope for a good, closely contested match. :)

Andre can manage to win according the H2H record, and the way in that he has won his last two matches. I hope a contested match as well. ;) We'll see!. I do like both players :D

perhaps on paper it wouldn't look like Andre has much of a chance.. and maybe he doesn't.. but he also has some intangibles working in his favor like the comfort with the situations, the crowd will be HUGELY in his favor I imagine, And he's not tired either. You know Andre wants to make one last run here, so in terms of who wants it more, Andre might have the edge here too. Not that these things win matches, but sometimes they counterbalance other things.

It will be interesting for sure. *starts popping popcorn already*

i think that agassi definately has a chance. i think it will be a tough match, and of course andre will have to play his best tennis possible to win. i guess it just goes down to how well they take advantages of their opportunities when they have them. i want agassi to win, and i do think it is possible :)

09-06-2004, 10:59 PM
Yes, he does. Andre is a tough competitor and a shot maker. Roger does not seem to like night matches or windy conditions which works to Andre's favor. But, Roger is looking to cement his international reknown as "The (current) Man", particularly here in the U. S. So, if he can ignore any inconvenient conditions and keep his eye on the big picture, he should handle Andre handily. The Houston final had rain delays and unpleasant conditions, but, Roger came up with the goods. Good luck to both.

CF Rogi wasn't at his best in IW and still won it. Andre beat down his backhand that day but Federer was able to use it as a rally shot later in the match. If Rogi is iffy then Andre has a shot but that is really it. I just hope Rogi is his normal Ninja self. I am really bummed about not seeing him tonight. :sad: Andre is not behind Andy its the other way around. Andy and Andre played a very high level match and Andre won it because there is now way in hell Andy can compete with Andre on the ground.

Federer isn't playing the best he can at this year's Us Open, but he's still playing well. Agassi literally has to be 95% on his game to have a shot at the upset. Can he do it? Yes for sure he has the goods to beat Federer, but it's the fact of doing it that's being asked here. I do give Andre a shot at this, I'll leave it at that.;)

Dirk
09-07-2004, 12:16 AM
Rogi knows what to do to beat Andre. I think both will come out trying to play their best. Its all down to who plays better. I am so looking forward to it but still want my PAVEL/ROGER MATCH!!!!!! :fiery:

Andre's chances depend a lot on his bakchand. The crosscourt one has to be as strong as it was against Hewitt and Roddick at Cincy. DTL ... jus hit it. If it's gone, Federer will be in semis

RogiFan88
09-07-2004, 01:43 AM
AA is playing better than Rogi at the USO imo... Rogi's played too much and won too much this year whereas AA has only won Cincy and is peaking at the right time. AA always plays well at the USO; Rogi hardly ever does... he hasn't, in fact. The crowd will be cheering for AA, cos he's Amer, cos he's old, cos he's the sentimental fave, cos they want him to win his final slam [doesn't have to be at the USO] and cos he's Andre.

Does AA like night matches?? Not particularly but he'll take them... as for Rogi, I've never heard him say he didn't like night matches... if it's windy, AA will be favoured.

It will be a tough match for Rogi I think, so he has to be in top form to beat AA... they're fairly even so far, having dropped a set, so they've both been tested somewhat, unlike Pandy or even Lleyton [altho Hicham pushed him w his lovely tennis].

We'll see... I'm happy that Rogi has already defended his points, so that's all that matters to me but if he does beat AA, I won't complain...

Of course Andre has a chance. Probably the best chance to beat him apart from maybe Roddick.

Agassi is an astounding player and it's amazing how good he is at age
34 having said that at this stage of their career Federer is on another level and Andre will have to rely on Fed being a little of form even if he is to play his best.

I have to disagree with you there. Andre has the best chance to beat him of any of the players. Then Henman. Federer can play well and Agassi can still beat him, thats not the same case with Roddick or the other players. Andre imo has a much better chance of beating Federer, he can hurt Federer from the baseline, not the same case for Roddick. Agassi can hurt Roger with his backhand, Andy DEFINETLY can not. Andre can hurt Roger off the return. Again Andy cannot. I think I've made myself pretty clear. Plus the fact that Agassi actually has beaten Federer, Roddick has not.

I don't think the picture is that bleak.

The head to head is 3-3. It is important to note Roger has taken the last 3. It's also important to note that 2 of the last 3 were razor tight matches. Let's give Andre the benefit of the doubt and call the Masters final a bad day. I really don't see any reason why he can't win this match with the crowd behind him ... a night match makes things even more favorable. Of course, Federer is the clear favorite, of that there is no doubt. But Andre can do it, and I think he can match Federer's best level. Didn't win 8 Slams for nothing.

As for being a bleak picture, the title of this thread is a lot bleaker than the scenario that I posted previously. Agassi can not consistently play at his old level and at the moment at their respective bests Federer is the better player at the moment, that's why Agassi needs to absolutely at the top of his game and unsettle Federer early and I was not saying Agassi doesn't have a chance, only a fool would say that, but I think Federer will win.

Federer can play well and Agassi can still beat him


4 years ago, not at age 34.


Andre imo has a much better chance of beating Federer, he can hurt Federer from the baseline, not the same case for Roddick. Agassi can hurt Roger with his backhand, Andy DEFINETLY can not. Andre can hurt Roger off the return. Again Andy cannot. I think I've made myself pretty clear. Plus the fact that Agassi actually has beaten Federer, Roddick has not.


Well Roddick has beaten Federer and while Roger is certainly the better player I don't think when their careers are over Andy will have just the one win over him.

Andre loves to stand in the one spot and make opponents run but that will be extremely difficult to do to Roger due to his retrieving skills and speed around the court.
Andre will no doubt attack Roger's backhand and he better pray its not working for Roger.
I am not saying Andre can't beat him but his best hope is the crowd, atmosphere or something affects Roger's play.

If Roger can get the backhand down the line working very well and keep Agassi off balance, then he will win, but it's time for Roger to step up the level of his game and yes of course Agassi has a chance of winning, he is at the US Open in front of his people, but Federer has managed to beat him and the crowd, and hopefully will do it again.

I did. But I also know that Federer didnt play well in that match, but still won it. But I also remember, as I'm sure you do, Wimbledon 03, MC 03, and Toronto 03, matches, that Federer dominated, where Federer and Roddick both played their best, yet Federer still crushed him every time :)

Havok
09-07-2004, 04:31 AM
Oh so you're allowed to play the "wasn't at his best" card but surely Andy was at his best in all those matches (especially the recently Toronto match where he had like what 22 ue's in the 1st set alone). Please don't use excuses, you said Andy couldn't hurt Roger from the ground, off his backhand, and off the return of serve. That Wimbledon final makes your post flawed and don't try to run around it. Now I know Andy can't consistently do that vs Federer as someone as good as Agassi can, but to totally dismiss it is just dumb.

Havok
09-07-2004, 04:32 AM
And you got a date mixed up. They never played in Toronto 03, their 03 match in Canada was in Montreal which Andy won, though seeing as where your post was trying to get to I think you mean the Toronto match in 2004.;)

I dont think Agassi will win, but hopefully he'll be able to put up a good fight and take a set, or maybe even 2, off of Federer

And after getting that walkover I think it'll be too hard for anyone to hope to wear down Roger in this tournament

Fedex
09-07-2004, 04:59 AM
Andy made those errors because Federer forced him into errors. He returned all of his big shots,which made them play long rallies which Andy is crap at doing. And still Federer had tons of winners in that match. He outclassed him, end of story. And plus in the Wimbledon match, Roger served like crap, didnt have the depth, and placement he usually has. And since when did Andy hurt Roger off his backhand in the Wimbly match. I dont remember him having one winner off that side or forcing errors from that side. I just remember him pounding forehands and serves like he always does. :)

No Naldo is right in the first game on andy's serve they showed winners and errors. Andy had 24 errors and 14 winners and Rogi had 18 winners and 13 errors. Andy did make lots of errors but Rogi has a way of bringing out the worst in his opponents.

Andy had backhand winners in that match..you just don't remember it. Off the top of my head: cross-court passing shot in first few games. Another example: return dtl on deuce, Roger hits defensively cross-court...Andy hits dtl winner on ad-side.

In the first set Roger made 18 winners and Andy made 24 errors.
But Roger only won 42 points.

If all 24 of Andy's errors were unforced errors then Andy made no forced errors which I find difficult to believe having seen the first set.

Fedex
09-07-2004, 03:11 PM
That's bullshit. Most of those errors were forced by Roger. And Jackson, he may have had winners off the backhand, here and there, but still he cant hurt Roger off that side, and can only dream of what Roger and Andre can do off the backhand side. Point is, that was not a great match from Federer, and Andy cant expect to have many of those.

Roger won't be flustered, I feel he will play to his ability, cause these are the ones that count. Roger hasn't lost a big match in a long time, because he always seems to find his best tennis against the best opponents. But Andre will give him a match, not because of the crowd (although this will help) but because he's still a fierce competitor and has awesome ability.

I don't think you can compare the atmosphere at a smallish stadium like Houston's to Ashe stadium in NY.

I believe Agassi is going to raise his game sufficiently to pummel Federer into submission. His relentlessly accurate groundstrokes and searing return of serves is going to put the world no.1 under unbearable pressure from the start.

i think that the pt naldo is trying to make is that andy had alot of unforced errors, aside from those that were forced by federer. hence they show that andy wasnt playing at his best as the many unforced errors were due to his own carelessness. no more fights please. :)

its definitely possible that andre can win federer, considering the way hes been playing recently. but fed is still looking oh-so-high-and-mighty, so who knows? anyway, ill be supporting andre on this one.

Andre will certainly not beat Fed easily no matter how well he plays. I'm still remembering the TMC Final, so I know if Federer plays his very best, he can destroy Agassi very easily. But that was one of the best matches of his career, doubt he'll play that awesome today. Hope its a great match, though

This match is in Roger's hands. Andre's strokes arent what they used to be, and he doesnt go for winners like he used to. If Roger keeps is error count low and is hitting winners today, then he will be the victor no doubt.

Andre needs to be far more secure and canny on his serve than he has shown in recent months, I am predicting a close match with andre squeezing through with crowd advantage and wanting it badly.

Good point Sparkz. But I think Roger will receive his share from the crowd as well.

LOL, that's funny about '50 people in Athens' unruffling Roger...heh heh...
naw, I just meant that for any reason anybody even the usually unflappable
Roger can get un-done sometimes...I think this is going to be a good match,
I just hope Andre can come up the victor!

Federer will win as long as he is on top his game and his backhand holds up.

I think this could be the biggest and best match of USO 2004! I predict the winner will win USO 04.
