I might be the only one to say that :) , but for me it would be Rafa in 3!!!!!!!!

it's not clay, so Roger in 2... Even if it were clay, I'd still probably pick him in 2, possibly 3. Nadal just came back from a very long layoff so he's likely to shake off some rust for a few tournaments...

can anyone tell me when is the last time that the world no.1 and 2 met in the final?

Last year Indian Wells TMC. Federer(1) defeated Hewitt(2) 6-2,6-4,6-4.

I hope I'm wrong as I'd like Rogi's winning streak to continue, but Rafa's coming to some good form and the fed's been far from his best and has not played in over a month, so I say Rafa in 3. Sorry Roger :sad:

Hehe, Just hope it will be a great final. I doubt Rafa can win but then again ... IMPOSSIBLE is nothing. :D

It's gonna be a tight three setter but, I don't either one of these guys are in top form...that being the case I take Nadal.

I am going to have to go with Nadal winning this in 3 tight sets. Its going to be a brilliant match.

i hope rogi surprises me and wins..

I just checked the latest odds on the dubai final from betfair.com. (http://www.betfair.com/?rfr=230&mi=4778863) Roger is given as a solid favourite, with the implied probability of winning being 75%. I use betfair since they are not taking position themselves, they just clear the market by setting supply=demand.

My take is that this match is not that important for either player. Rafa gains match experience in hard courts and Roger shakes off his rustiness. If Roger wins, it implies precisely nothing about their potential clash at RG. If Rafa wins, it also does not change Roger's chances at RG. It is just a final at an International Series Gold Event, nothing more, nothing less.

For the record, i think that Roger is the favourite but not as much as 75%.

well if Rafa wins it will be a big deal because he is trying to move away from the clay court "specialist" image some people are unfairly saddling him with. Plus he will have beaten Roger Federer! That's gotta be a big deal for anyone.

landoud
03-04-2006, 06:26 AM
i truely hope fedex to win it
but after rafa's match yesterday.... i think it will be rafa's tittle
anyway i voted roger in 3

honestly, i dont know, if it was aussie open or us open then federer but small tournament fed is very vulnerable

Rafa all the way

landoud

Good luck Roger

Rafa = Fed Killa

You like trying to reverse-jinx your players by predicting the opposite result, don't you? :p I seem to remember you being somewhat leery about the RG semi last year beforehand. But hey, it certainly works.
