Ferrer - Federer, finally I agree on something with Federer fans ;)

Although I believe Federer is an even bigger favorite against Wawrinka I'm sure not a lot of people will share that opinion.

Personally I would prefer a Wawrinka-Federer Final. First of all for Wawrinka to have a chance to win a 1st Masters, if not then Federer finally getting Monte Carlo after how many years. Next probably would be Wawrinka-Djokovic to see how Stan 2.0 would fare against Djokovic on Clay -- could have chances if this bizaare Djokovic shows up. Next would be Ferrer-Federer I guess to see how would Ferrer think of his lopsided H2H against Federer, then last the Ferrer-Djokovic match which might not be that interesting in general.

Ferrer is a much better clay player than Wawrinka
Yes, but I think most people will see Wawrinka as a bigger threat to Federer than Ferrer would be.

The one I want the least is Ferrer-Djokovic. We've seen that too often in last years, Ferrer might dominate the match but winning a big final against Nole would be too much for him.

Basically all other options are good. Stan would probably once again cause huge trouble to Nole and might well win. Fed-Ferrer on clay would be interesting, hasn't happened in ages if ever. Ferrer might be currently the superior clay-courter but does he have the testicular fortitude. But I'd like Stan-Fed the most. Nothing but pure shotmaking. And I believe Stan would now have the confidence to bring his best against Fed.

I chose Wawrinka - Djokovic...

Those two seem to have provided the closest matches with the most drama in recent times. Though maybe I would rather see this match up at RG. Monte Carlo doesn't seem like the right battleground for them.

Wawrinka - Federer might be an interesting battle for #3 and #1 Swiss, but I'm not sure how much of a battle there would be.

Ferrer - Federer? See Kuerten's classic Mein Lenders video - 2:07.


Ferrer - Djokovic? That might be interesting. David has beaten Nole 3 out of 4 times on clay, and at Monte Carlo, but not recently.
