    Nor Nov.12th for that matter.

    Decline is such a slow process and relative the perceptional capabilities of the surroundings and their values and shortterm longterm priorities.

    me too...i also like them both..i suppose i might angle for a federer win if only to keep the world no1 rank up for grabs next spring..if djokovic wins he is miles ahead as world no1 for a long time.

    i think a chip n charge super attacking megafed can win..so i go for him if im gonna choose.

    Yeah even if Djoko loses the final he will have increased the ranking gap between Fed and him quite a bit.

    If Djokovic doesn't choke, Federer in 2 sets or else Djokovic in 3 sets.

    Federer needs to win this to have a shot at #1 next year. 1200 points is a big differential.

    why not? it makes clear sense to me.

    Djokovic is known to dig deep when he is in trouble and he has come with a W in all those instances. I am really hoping Djokovic doesn't choke and hands RF this match.

    The problem with Djoko is that he often has slow starts (like he had vs Delpo). If he has a slow start at WTF vs Fed, he could easily be down a bagel before he even starts warming up.

    Makes sense. I hope Federer can keep his UEs to minimum.

    If you choke, you lose. Why would you hope Djokovic doesn't choke if you want Federer to win?

    Part of me wants Federer to win this from match point down :twisted:

    I'm not predicting anything, I just hope Rog wins :D

    I like the fact Djoko didn't lose any match. Just for that reason, I would like it if he could win this event.

    It's already over. Novak fought hard to pick up a game in the second set.

    Once Tomic gets his head together all of Fed's records will be a distant memory.

    Probably because Tomic won't get his head together until 50 years later and Federer will be a distant memory by then :twisted:

    For me, Djokovic's BH DTL is his key arsenal in maintaining his #1 rank.

    Without it, we see a tired, helpless dude against Murray in USO 2012.

    What a great video by the BBC to get things started, I can't wait to see Murray come out of the changing room to play his first WTF Final.

    Oh, wait...

    I'm conflicted here - completely happy with either playing winning but it's always better to root for somebody.

    Who to root for?

    I'd say Federer, I mean he did beat Murray when it really mattered so at least if he wins you can say Murray lost to the champion, but maybe I'm biased ;).

    just wish Fed will be able to give a last year's push and bring an A game. it would be a shame to see Djoko winning it easy.
