I'd be curious to see what the odds are. I'd reckon they're about even.

In a best of three it would be 50-50 between Fed & Djokovic...But in a five set match Federer all the way!

I disagree completely, but we'll see what happens.

Djokovic.

And yes, Federer played well today, but Djokovic has been more consistent all clay season long.

If Fed was the #4 seed, meeting Nadal in the semi and pushing him for 4 hours, and Djoko met Nadal in the final, we'd have similar results.

Fed is a close third, though. Closer than he was before this week, for sure.

What's funny here is that Monfils, Gonzo, and Wawrinka have the same odds to win the tournament as Richard Gasquet. lol

It depends where Djokovic is in the draw. I can see Djokovic taking out Federer in the semis. However, if Djokovic is in Nadals half, Federer would be the man to meet Nadal in the finals, and as we have seen, with Federer, you throw out all stats when he is playing in a final

Just look at Djokovic's history in 5 set matches...He has retired twice in RG already! I am not getting carried away over today's win but honestly I would give the edge to Fed, if Fed plays Djokovic in a 5 set match...also Fed picks up his game in Grand Slams...

I still think that djokovic has been playing far better clay court tennis than fed has been plus I think he seems to have slightly improved his fitness. If he does continue to improve it, I would favor djokovic based on how they have been playing.

phaw, it's close. I'd possibly lean towards Roger given things are going to best of 5, particularly if he is starting to play a little more consistantly like it's seemed this week. Dunno, it's a real toss up. If they were to meet I doubt it'd be won in straights xD
