Federer 2 sets. Tommy Haas and Blake to a point, play similiar styles to Federer, just nowhere near as good.

It depends on Fed, but I think he should pick his form up and beat Haas in 2, I suspect Haas should be getting tired now.

If Haas ever had a chance, it's tomorrow.

I will not make any prediction here...

Well fed had a long match verus novak and now he's playing doubles as well. I hope the extra play doesn't tire him out. Haas is playing great...still Federer should take it.

If Haas plays like recent days it will be a hard day for Federer.I think Haas in 3.

This is probably the best chance Haas will ever have to beat Federer

You say that, but how many UEs did he make on the forehand which he would usually make? 28 UEs alone in the 2nd set.

Fed will be able to win a set, but will lose in 3 after feeling very tired.

Voted for Feds in three, but with serious doubts.
Having just witnessed the Fed-Nole match I can't conclude this will in any way be an easy win for Roger. Especially not with Haas seemingly being in top form!

Indeed, if Haas ever wants to beat Feds, he should do so tomorrow.

FedEx in easy two sets. I'm afraid tommorow burst the bubble and break the Haas' charm ;)

Federer will find a way to win I think.. but given today's performance v Nole I think it will be in 3

Fed will be able to win a set, but will lose in 3 after feeling very tired.

let me think

Federer plays first tournament since AO and has been enjoying some Dubai vacations before the tournament
Has has played 2 tournament, in one of them played 5 matches and has rushed to come from Memphis to Dubai

I wonder who will feel more tired :scratch:

I doubt it will be close at all, Haas does not have anything to threaten him.

Usually matches involving Federer that are predicted to be close turn out to be anything but. Let's see if the trend continues.

Federer in 3. Haas will give it a good go, he's playing well at the moment, but Fed will progress in the end.

I think Federer will really step it up and win 6-3 6-4.

I seem to remember last year around this time, Haas was on fire, trash-talking Federer (that was so funny :lol:), and they were meeting every other tournament. Beat Fed at Kooyong, pushed him to five sets in the AO, won Delray and Memphis, and their Miami match was hyped from here to high heaven.

Fed won 6-1 6-3.

haas is able to beat roger, but has to play his best tennis...and roger doesn't

I think he should be really confident right now and have a slight chance

It has been a long long 5 years since haas has found a way to beat Federer. I hope haas does not find any solutions tomorrow either.

Yes, sometimes the match we're really looking forward to see makes us waste time. Fortunately we don't have to spend much time we would expect.

Anyway I hope Fed wins and go for he'll win 3 sets.
The reason voting for 3 sets is actually I was worried today when I saw his game against Nole.

Fed is still playing tennis right now. His doubles match with Allegro is going on and should finish on the same day as his match with Haas. So he's going to be playing in 2 competitive tennis matches on each of 2 straight days.

If Tommy will play like he did in the Memphis final against Roddick,he will win.
Besides,Federer is far from his best.

I just hope that Haas keeps the form and doesn't start to play like crap tomorrow.

And maybe, just maybe Federer won't be able to step it up which he usually does against higher quality opponents and/or in the later stages of a tourney.

Rochus gave headaches to Federer many times. Beating Rochus isn't an easy tak. He is very solid from the baseline and should win it if he keep the ball in play.

He's the worst possible matchup for Haas - he can do everything Haas does, only better.

Federer is the worst possible matchup for every player on tour...

Federer.

Federer can absorb Haas' power and will make him run. Haas isn't that great a mover.

Besides, What's with the Haas bandwagoning. He hid himself from the European 'top' and went to the states to school the American clowns and Roddick. Youhzny performance was way more impressive.

Well as many have said this seems like a great chance for Haas who is playing at or very near his best and Roger still hasn't clicked into top gear yet in this tournament.

Having said that, after Haas' comments last year at the AO Roger could very well amp it up like he did in Miami last year. If both of them are at their best it will always be Federer. We will see if Roger can bring if not his A game at least his B+ or A- game.

My concern for this match is fatigue if any for Roger and if he will finally bring his A game.I think Haas will win if he doesnt bring it out.

Roger always seems to pick up his level when needed to.

He does this time and time again, yet people still doubt.

Roger in 2. 6-3, 7-5.

i think it depends on the surface.On fast surfaces, federer has the slice to be very effective even if he is misfiring with the bh. On the slower HC, tommy has a more reliable bh because he hits with more top. Its more consistent but i wouldnt say more spectacular.

haas may win but i cant believe all the people doubting federer because of his form. I mean how many times has the guy played like Sh4T only to step up like a maniac in the next match.

I think Haas can win this one but only this one.

They will meet again in IW and then Federer will destroy him. Haas will never beat him in a MS or GS.

Okay, i have forgotten that match at AO. But that was in 2002 when Federer was far away from the tennis he is playing today. That won't happen anymore.

Federer. He's the worst possible matchup for Haas - he can do everything Haas does, only better.

I'd say Nadal is a worse matchup for Haas.

And Haas definitely has game to hurt Fed. I hope Roger, but think Haas can take him in three.

03-02-2007, 11:05 AM
I realy think Fed will win in 2 sets... After what happened yesterday I don't think he will allow himself not to take all his chances ... So Haas doesn't really have a chance.

Goodluck Fede :worship:

Federer usually brings his A game when he plays people he respects.

So now a lot of MTF'ers are jumping on the Haas bandwagon. Why, because he won some mm tournament?
Some of you guys are so easy to influence it ain't even funny even some so called "Federer fans".
But anyhow Federer in 2 sets 6-4 7-5
