For reference:

2006 RG QF: 6-4 6-4 15-15 ret., 1:54
2007 RG SF: 7-5, 6-4, 6-2, 2:28
2008 RG SF: 6-4, 6-2, 7-6(3), 2:49
2012 RG F: 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5, 3:49 (over 2 days)
2013 RG SF: 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7(3), 9-7, 4:37

They have progressively played longer and longer matches and I think this time it will go over 5 hours.

AO 2012 lasted 5:52 btw

Time doesn't mean much. Half of that is just wasted time in between points anyway.
But I really think that for some reason Nadal is going to win this match in straight sets... I hope I am proven wrong come Sunday.

I hope it will be longer to make it epic, but Nadal will probably prevail within 4 sets. So less than 4hours

I have a gut feeling you may just be right, johnny.. I think I voted for the 3:30 -3:59 option in case there's lots of deuce games where either may have trouble holding serve, etc.. that said, I'm still hoping like crazy that we will see another quick 2008-style beatdown, especially if nole's les than 100% and rafa's confidence continues to soar.. <knock on wood>

The match will precisely last for four hours ,58 minutes and 34 seconds according to my calculations. You can bet your house on this

If it lasts that long the match is going into long game again because they don't allow for time-wasting between points now

Not gonna guess a certain time but I rather doubt this one will be epic. Possibilities I see as most likely: a) three sets to Djokovic if he's on and Nadal isn't with a poor but desperate Nadal maybe grabbing a late consolation set or b) four sets to Nadal if he's on and Djokovic doesn't redline.

Four sets max either way and I think at least one will be a blowout.

This is cruel. I don't want to see Novak being embarrassed like Federer in 2008, though it may happen!:sad:
Fed was sick, noob.

I think Rafa in 3: 63, 76, 64
