So because we don't believe the guy is not the favourite in conditions which are pretty much his least favourite, especially against a good defender like ND, we are crybabies. Right. OK.

No, and your signature shows enough. And it's not just you. It's always like "Oh he's not leading, he's playing so bad, surely he'll lose now. Or if he even somehow wins and gets in the final, he would get so thrashed by Nadal it would be painful to watch."
FFS show some faith, he's still #3 in the world, not #157 and don't always turn your back on him and give up whenever he's having a bad day or a slow start to the match.

Well, he has a chance. But he's not the favourite, meaning, on balance, I don't expect him to win. Plus I think his chances in the final, slim as they are, are just not worth risking Wimbledon + Olympics over, where he can potentially gain #1 and win #17 which will be huge at this point in his career.

I know Roger does not think that way and I know that carrying good form and confidence from RG is crucial for the grass swing. However, last year's great performance gave him loads of confidence but affected his physical endurance for the grass. This year he can gain loads at SW19 and at the USO as well as on the US HCs. I am just saying, on balance, it's better if he focuses on grass but I'm sure he'll go for the win 100% as he's only 2 matches from #17.

Default Re: WWW RG SF: Federer vs. Djokovic

Djokovic is coming after two five setters, but the surface and the balls are very uncomfortable for Roger.

I think the main factor will be: How is Djokovic's mind set after barely surviving the match against Tsonga?
He might get stronger because of this, and find his best game, but he also might be mentally exhausted.

No 3 setters here. I believe Roger can pull it in 4 or 5.

By the same MTF logic, if Seppi/Tsonga fans picked Nole to win they'd be no faith crybabies ? If Monaco fans picked Nadal for the win they are no faith crybabies ? Just because you support someone doesn't mean you think they are going to be winning slams left right and centre and beating world number 1s in their sleep. If that were the criteria for someone being a fan then only Nadal and Nole would have fans at the moment

I am really tired of all these insults on GM. I mean, you can always post shit like this on Gamblers Forum, no? Let's agree that your name needs a small change too. How about Samsuka? Easier to remember, quicker to type, reflects your bitchy character? Or just Suka for short. Would do too. Not for English speaking posters to understand, but you and I do know what we talk about, right?

Wow...

Newsflash: You're only a 'true fan' of a player when you expect/post that said player will win everything in sight, despite how badly he's actually playing at that moment in time.

I'd rather call those kinds of 'fans' 'fanboys/girls'...

I think Novak wins this. If he wanted to lose, he'd lose against Tsonga. He didn't win those 4 MPs for nothing, he won them for a chance to get Novak Slam.

I posted my vote above that sentence but the two things didn't have much to do with each other. Bottom line, I didn't say what I said about Fed fanbase because they voted Djokovic to win.

Now, I know you're a clown but can you at least try? Obviously, Roger was winning when I posted that.

Well you have to construct your point. That is what clay court tennis is all about. But if somebody wants to play low margin shots they can always paint the lines. Those would penetrate for sure. Federer is a great clay court player (yes he is!) who is good at constructing his points. He will find ways to set up winners which would penetrate.

Fed will have to cut down on his unforced errors off both wings. Novak's balls will be less penetrating than Delpo's and from what I saw today Fed was holding his own in hard rallies with Delpo. Fed is due a good serving outing and if that is clicking it will become easier for him. Novak is not in top grade form. If Tsonga and Seppi could take novak to 5 sets, Federer has chances.

Yes Novak is the favorite for sure but I can picture out what it would take for fed to win. He has the game and nobody has more tools than him. Just depends on execution, mental strength and stamina.

Djoko in three, or Fed in 4/5. Could go either way.
Big time for the massive vJinx Bet...
