I think oldy-baldy will be dismissed in three sets.

This poll is actually flawed. Agassi has more chances of winning this poll. :D

I applaud Dre for the wonderful achievment of actually being in the final at his age. But if Fed wins in three I will physically die of disappointment

No it's not.

He doesn't. Federer will pummel him tomorrow.

:( Unfortunately, Andre will probably lose in straights to Fed/Jesus. But
I hope he don't get bagled or breadsticked--that would be awful. BTW, I
wonder why so many posters on the board seem to think Andre's a
terrible player who has been lucky to get this far? I think the average age
of people posting on this board must be 14 or 15, because most of you
seem to have no perspective at all. Just wait 10 years until YOUR fave
player is a washed up 34 year old (that is, if he happens to still be
playing) and gets beat up by younger players whose fans tell you how
sucky your long-time favorite is. ;)

My heart says Agassi. Everyone's brain says Federer.

'nough said. That is all there is to say, really. Agassi has no chance if it goes to a fifth set, really even a four set. And there is no way he can beat Roger in straight sets.

No way! I dont think Roge will beat andre with breadstick or bagel. In fact I think this can be competitive. Roge has had a good strategy in beating him for 7 straight matches, which is why instinct says that it would be difficult for andre to win tomorrow

But andre is on borrowed time. he will leave everything out there even if it means he come to receive trophy on a stretcher or wheelchair. he knows that opportunities for slam finals again are very slim in the future.

i dont know if crowd will play a role. Roge says he has played in hostile situations with Davis cup, and is not fearful of the crowd. But they might try to distract, this could be a problem

Trust me, Andre has NO CHANCE AT ALL to win that match tomorrow.
If Fed's own contemporaries such as Hewitt, Nalbandian et. al. can't
manage to beat him more than 2 or 3 times in an entire YEAR, what
hope does the old guy have?? :sad:

This is a very special situation for andre. He has reached a major final after about 10 slams or whatever, and he knows that the chances for reaching more major finals is too small.

pete came back from the dead to win the Open in 02. I do think that Roge will win, but it would be wrong to be dismissive of andre like you have done, meaning the "No Chance"

I just can´t see Andre beating Roger. He might test him, push him...but not beat him. Roger already has had his greatest challenges: David and Lleyton and even Kiefer...and he passed them all. Plus when you contrast the pace of how Lleyton and Roger were playing compared to what Ginepri and Andre were doing....it is no contest.

Pete was Andre's nemesis during most of his career. It makes perfect
sense for the 'great, wonderful, sportsmanlike, Pete/Jesus-before-Fed-
was-Jesus' to go out on another drubbing of Dre and then ride off into
the sunset, because Pete sensed he could NEVER top that scenario.
That won't happen for Dre, believe me. Thanks for your kind words
about Andre, but I sense from what I saw today that Fed is going to
try to whip Andre the worst he ever has. LLeyton ticked him off
by taking a set, and now he'll want to silence the American crowd
ASAP. Just watch him play his very best in the final--the sadist!! :p

AnneMarie -- I hope that you are still going to be happy tomorrow that andre reached the final, after such a bad year physically and with many questions about retirement. I hope it is at least a good match, I don't see it being a disaster for andre -- he has never had a terrible match against Roge even the 7 ones he has lost straight, he has played pretty good.

Also, you are here since 2002 but only 20 posts??

I think people are too quick to dismiss Andre. Federer has not yet proven to me that he has hit top gear thus far in this year's Open. Tomorrow is his last chance and I hope that he does. But if he stands as far behind the baseline as he did today bunting the BH and lets Andre dictate then he could be in very serious trouble. He will have to stand inside or around the baseline, push Agassi around as much as he can, mix up the pace throwing in the occassional slice and STOP TRYING TO IMMITATE A KAMIKAZE BY HITTING AWFUL APPROACH SHOTS AND GOING INTO THE NET LIKE HE DID TODAY ONLY TO GET PASSED.

If he can cut down on his errors, have a solid serving day and make Agassi the one who does the moving then he has an excellent chance.
