Harrison almost choked against Raonic. He is definitely not getting past Olderer.


Olderer in 2 straightforward sets - something like 6-3 6-4.

Harrison 7-6 6-2

I think Harrison could grab a set...
The crowd is really important for him.

I mean, I don't think the crowd would affect Federer, he has the enough experience in this situations.
But for Harrison, it would be an energy drink in the middle of the match.

The joke of a draw for Fed goes on. A player ranked outside the top 100 in round 4? LOL

Following Fedtard logic here.

Federer wins, of course. That said, I can assure you that Harrison will win at least twice as many games as Chela, and that the atmosphere will be 10X as exciting...

If Ryan played match of his life, he could get into one Tiebreak.
But more likely a routine win for Roger.

Ryan is my boy, but he's going to get destroyed by Federer. Probably 6-2 6-2.

Wanted to see Raonic vs. Fed. This Harrison guy shouldn't have gotten through - He'll be spent for Federer - may take a set off him if Fed decides to mentally check out for awhile.

The crowd will back the young lad big time. But it's not going to happen. Perhaps if Federer sympathizes, he might throw him a set or even the entire match. But realistically, I think, he'll take Ryan out 6-4, 6-3.

Federer can lose to anyone these days. Never count him from mugging out to some random loser.

He's a disgrace to Tennis.

Harrison is good but I think this match against Raonic was far enought for him, he will be tired. And Federer is in good form... 6-2, 6-1

Me, too. I look forward to a good play from Ryan but IMO Fed is still too strong to be taken out. Not today.
Good luck, Ryan! :wavey:

This match is mostly on Ryan's racket. It depends whether he manages to take off the initial shakiness which seems inevitable for such a young player.
I predict a very one-sided opening set and some decent tennis from Harrison in the second one and it should be close.

Federer something like 6-2 7-5.

Fed is usually very nice with the young guns. I hope he's not too nice this time as this one is dangerous, more promising imo than Raonic, even though maybe Raonic would have been more dangerous in the short term.

03-16-2011, 01:01 PM
Harrison isn't dangerous at all. He's a poormans wawrinka and we all know that Fed likes his Wawrinka. Federer is the manager here and Ryan is the employee.

As for the crowd, Ryan is one of those shy/nerdy types. Crowd will be pro Roger just like it should be

Do you ever stop talking shit? The only thing Harrison has in common with Wawrinka is facial similarity.

And this is an 18 year old American kid vs. Federer in the United States and you think the crowd will be for Federer? :lol: Sure Fed will have his supporters, but the majority of the American crowd will be pulling for the upset.

No this is 16 time grand slam champ Roger Federer and the greatest player to have graced the court vs the geeky American kid with no charisma. The crowd paid money to see Roger not the junior.

I thought Harrison's playing style had a lot of variety :confused:

I think Fed's main advantage is that he has more power but I hope he will be motivated and aggressive enough to show it.

But yes I think Fed will go to the net to make an entertaining match with Ryan ;)

1) What has Ryan Harrison done to you?

2) There is no way this crowd will be pro-Roger.

3) Federer in straight sets.

Not really. He doesn't change the pace of his shots, he doesn't use drop shots, his 1st serve is relatively flat etc.

Usually Fed tries to beat someone like Harrison at his own game but I hope he doesn't.

I had some good impressions about his abilities against Stakhovsky last year, but we will need time to know him better ;)

I don't know if he/she's a Rafafan but anyway what this "Snowwy" moderator said is so irrational that it lets me wonder about his/her "moderation" :rolleyes:

I wouldn't go that far...

Fed and Nadal both will have had fairly straightforward rides to the semis. And who knows...perhaps Nadal if he makes it will face a good Del Potro.

Andreev is ranked where he is for a reason, Chela had no chance of doing anything and Harrison is quite green though very promising long term.

If anyone thinks that is a challenging draw for Rog, they are downgrading him severely.

I hope Harrison acquits himself well...

I hope Harrison acquits himself well...

Andreev is a former top-20 and a bad match-up for Fed who had never beaten him in straights and played 5 sets and nearly played another one against him when he was in his best form, Chela is number 27 and a former top-15, Harrison is a promising young gun who has beaten the number 10 in the Race, Berdych and Wawrinka are both Aus open quarterfinalists, and Djokovic ... is the best player of the year so far.

For Nadal you have De Voest, a 30 year-old player whose highest rank ever is number 110, Sweeting who will be number 90, his highest rank ever, next week, Devvarman, 26 years old, who will reach his highest rank ever next week (72) and has just beaten Malisse in final set tie-break, then Karlovic, same age and same highest rank ever as Chela, or Montanes, 30 years old, highest rank ever 22, finally at best Del Potro, who comes back from injury and is clearly not back to 100%.

Of course if people consider every player who is not in the top-5 as a "mug", all these draws are the same.

If this is supposed to be the normal level of MTF, then yes moderators can be like that : yes they're all mugs, and I don't speak about Polansky :lol:

Fed is perfectly able to lose to all of the players mentioned, Nadal is not able to lose to a Sweeting, a De Voest or a Devvarman (and so would Federer).

Tell me I downgrade Federer but I'm thrilling when he plays Andreev or Harrison (38 winners 28 UE yesterday), not when he plays Sweeting or Devvarman.

And this is even not considering that Fed can transform into an error machine these days, Nadal cannot : UE are not in his main vocabulary.

It's not downgrading Federer calling him Oldered : it's just who he is now :shrug:

If Ryan can manage not to piss his pants and win more than four games, I'll be satisfied. I don't want him to go into this match showing too much respect for Roger, like every other pigeon player does, it only makes Roger's life that much easier. :o

I reckon Roger in 2, with a one-sided first set and then a closer second one that may involve Ryan getting up a break but failing to serve it out or something like that. Good opportunity for him to prove himself though.
