A repeat of last year final. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that Djokovic will defend his title.

Olderer will have crowd on his side, but Nole will be motivated to defend the title and get revenge for Shanghai. Nole in 3 sets.

Roger in 2, thank you very much. Where's the poll ?

5th final in a row and 7th overall for Roger in Basel while Djokovic is still unbeaten at the tournament. A lot of pride is at stake for both players in this final, just a couple of weeks away from the World Tour Finals where they may meet again for even higher stakes.

Both will be heavily motivated.

Djokovic to humiliate Federer 2x in his home, which would be a bit painful and also to avenge his loss at the masters.

Federer to get revenge for the Basel lost a year ago, and to continue putting pressure on Djokovic via h2h to get the better of him.

I'm going with Federer in a close 3 setter. 7-6, 3-6, 6-4

It's impossible for Rogi to win this. Look for a similar scoreline to the Shanghai finals match.

If Federer plays his normal tennis, he should beat Djoko.

If he plays sub par, Djoko has a chance.

I think you forgot a very important semi loss in your 5 straight final tally

I'll go with Djokovic in 3 again.

Still pretty bitter about Fed's failure to capitalize on those 2 MP's at USO, I see. Have a tissue. :wavey:

My gut says Federer wins this, but I'll be rooting for Nole as always, and it's certainly not a long shot.

I think Roger, but based on today's performances, Nole showed a better level. Should be very interesting.

Hope you're right, but Djokovic had been playing even better in Shanghai than he currently is in Basel. I don't know what the hell happened to him in Shanghai, so it's hard to know that the same thing won't happen to him here. Here's hoping he maintains his level, anyway...

Head says Roger since he is probably still pissed off about losing to Nole in last year's final in Basel and he wants revenge and to extend his H2H even further against Nole.

I think Roger wins, but I really do hope that I'm wrong since I want Nole to win.

Fed will want to win this and keep the mental lead on Djokovic. He beat him in Shanghai, and will want to beat him here and if they meet in the WTF in order to mentally own him going into the AO.

Topspindoctor roots for anyone that plays against Fed. He's a hater on every single degree and he's also pathetic.

Federer for revenge for USO semi-final and Basel last year. Federer just stomped Nole at Shanghai.

Their matches these days are always toss ups. Maybe Federer will be extra motivated after last-year's defeat. Djokovic is definitely going to need to step up his game for Federer. He already got his big win this year (U.S. Open semi) so mentally he might already feel complete. We'll see how hungry he is tomorrow.

I'd say 51-49 Fed.

Fuck all.

Federer will easily beat Novak today. Everything Novak does, Fed just does it better. 6-3 6-4 or something like that. Novak will always be a one slam wonder and Fed is just going to write another story in his overated career.

i have to side with jase:

the great serbian slayer--at this point in time--has a better return game and perhaps the greatest double hander on the planet.

only murray, nalFATian, and nadal can compare with djokovic in terms of rock solid backhands.

Roamed
11-07-2010, 01:42 AM
Hopefully Roger :D Whoever it is I reckon the 2nd will be close.

analysist
11-07-2010, 01:08 AM
Djokovic's return game is good, and Fed's passing shot is weak recently especially his backhand side, he rarely hit bh down the line passing shot successful. So if Djoker execute attacking Fed's backhand and come to the net more (cover his backhand side, preparing for Fed's crosscourt backhand), he 'll have a great chance

Clay Death
11-07-2010, 01:25 AM
djokovic just has to serve well and return well.

and once in a point or a rally, he has to make sure he doesnt feed fed easy forehands. stay away from fed`s forehand in a rally and he will increase his chances.

Clay Death said all the same thing when Djokovic lost at Shanghai. He refuses to eat his words whenever his piss-poor predications fall apart.

You can bet there will be a thread dedicated to Topspindoctor and Clay Death if Roger wins tomorrow.

Clay Death
11-07-2010, 02:36 AM
i am predicting a djokovic win provided he does the following:

1. takes care of his serve
2. returns well and manages to get in the rallies
3. stays away from fed`s forehand. in other words, he has to attack fed`s weaker wing all match long. this should open up the court a little as well.

what part of this are you having the most trouble with? djokovic will lose if he doesnt do these things.

This is the whole reason why Djoker is playing in Basel, beating Fed in front of the home crowd must give him a kick. Federer will be very motivated though to avenge last year's loss, so if Djokovic can win, it'll be huge boost for him.

So Djokovic in 3
