Federer or Nalbandian?

10-20-2006, 05:01 PM
Both have secured their place in the semis. Who do you guys think will win?

10-20-2006, 05:01 PM
I think Fed will squeak through.

10-20-2006, 05:05 PM
what do you think?

10-20-2006, 05:07 PM
Fed in straights because Nalby is never going to be the player his fans want him to be.

Hows that for blunt.

10-20-2006, 05:07 PM
Nalby plays wery well atm, but i think Fed will win in 3;

10-20-2006, 05:10 PM
David's best bet in beating Federer is indoors, preferably on the planet's fastest surface.

This scenario only fills in half the arrangement. On top of that, Nalbandian hasn't played well since the abdominal injury. Fed in a blow out, or 3 close sets.

10-20-2006, 05:11 PM
I voted Fed in 2, but more likely will be in 3

10-20-2006, 05:13 PM
Fed in 3. He'd like to play more before Nadal showdown. If anyone else is in the final - Fed in 2

10-20-2006, 05:15 PM
Their head-to-head is 6-6, so whoever wins will edge ahead in their rivalry. However, Federer is up 6-1 in their last 7 encounters and I see little reason why he should let go now. If it hadn't been for that 5-0 lead that Nalbandian had early in their careers, Nalbandian would probably be considered amongst Fed's bitches, even if they've had some close encounters recently.

10-20-2006, 05:15 PM
Fed in straight sets!!!I expect him too pick it up.Nalbandian has been lucky too survive plus he has played alot of hours.

10-20-2006, 05:18 PM
Yes, he played a lot, but that's why the belly is becoming smaller so he may pose a threat :D

10-20-2006, 05:20 PM
Nalby have been very lucky; both Tim & Marat should have taken him out. Fed should win in 2 if he shows up, 3 if he has a bd start!!

10-20-2006, 05:24 PM
Fed in 2 because nalby will be tired tomorrow

10-20-2006, 05:26 PM
The way nalby is playing i expect this to be a Federer massacre :lol:

But i have a feeling Roger will win in 3.

Fed without a single shade of doubt

10-20-2006, 05:28 PM
I also think Fat Dave will be tired tomorrow... but I voted Roger in three anyway...

By the way, if Roger wins tomorrow he will be 7-6 against Nalbandian... so among the active players, Roger only has a negative record against Nadal, Hrbaty and Kuerten. Or am I talking nonesense and forgeting a lot of players?!

Time to cut some cheese though it would be more pleasant if Nadal did the job this week and Dave cutting the cheese where it counts the most: in Basel :aplot: :devil:

10-20-2006, 05:34 PM
if nalbandian plays well, no way federer will trash and nalbnadian could win .but the problem he must be very tired by playing all those three long setters (todays match laster more than 3 hours). i hope he does not get injured as usual in a semis as he has to play the masters and the davis cup final.

10-20-2006, 05:36 PM
Federer 6-3 / 6-2.

10-20-2006, 05:57 PM
If David had Roger's serve maybe I would bet on the argie . Roger in straights

10-20-2006, 06:05 PM
kick his ass roger

10-20-2006, 06:15 PM
roger in 3 close sets

10-20-2006, 06:27 PM
Fed will win in 2 sets.

10-20-2006, 07:21 PM
Roger in 2.

10-20-2006, 07:24 PM
hopefully roger in 2,anyway roger will win:)

10-20-2006, 07:56 PM
Nalby in 3. Fed has not looked invincible and Nalby has taken it to him before...

10-20-2006, 07:58 PM
roger 61 60 :)

10-20-2006, 08:21 PM
Fat Dave to victory from 5-1 down in the 3rd set.

Roger in 2

*Viva Chile*
10-21-2006, 01:08 AM
Roger in 3, but this time I prefer that Nalby wins :p (I couldn't believe what I'm saying :tape: )

10-21-2006, 02:47 AM
Fed in 2. Nalby has been playing a lot, and winning with luck.

I think Federer is not going to let him win like Benneteau, Henman and Safin did.

10-21-2006, 02:54 AM
David isn't in real great form at the moment!

One key factor that he won his previous match was Marat's numerous unforced errors!

Roger is in a good form now, but I am sure he will (and he can) raise up another level to play against David!

Roger in 2!!

10-21-2006, 03:00 AM
In form Roger versus a still not up to par Nalby?

Roger in 2.

10-21-2006, 03:03 AM
Roger in two

10-21-2006, 04:31 AM
I wanna say Fed but I dunno. Regardless of how Nalbandian plays in the matches before, he gets this extra boost of confidence against Fed (that most players seem to lose) and usually makes it a match.

10-21-2006, 05:08 AM
Nalby, Nalby, Nalby :p :p :p If he has beaten Marat he might as well beat Roger :nerner:

God, how much I wished for a Safin - Federer semifinal :awww: :awww:

10-21-2006, 05:50 AM
Federer in two sets.

10-21-2006, 05:58 AM
Ah, the Federer - Nalbandian rivalry, part 13. I cant go against Federer here obviously, but I think Nalbandian plays some of his best tennis on indoor courts, so this match could certainly go his way. Either way, I see this match being a competitive 3 set match.

Depends. If Nalby is playing especially well, he'll win in 3 tight ones. Otherwise, Fed will blow him away in 2.

10-21-2006, 06:06 AM
Federer in 2.

10-21-2006, 11:48 AM
Nalby have been very lucky; both Tim & Marat should have taken him out. Fed should win in 2 if he shows up, 3 if he has a bd start!!

so true you gotta add bennetau. i hope roger's gonna destroy him. nalbys must be the luckiest player of the month!

Nalbandian is now serving to prevent himself from getting bagelled :help:

10-21-2006, 12:39 PM

It's gonna be very interesting match !! :D

Wonder how much he enjoyed it today? :angel:
