    If I got the schedule right, it seems like we've got our blockbuster match from group B on Tuesday. Federer played great for a set and a half today but Djokovic kept his composure and won in 3. Will the trend continue or is it Federer in 2?:)

    Normally the highest seed plays the lowest seed first, so Djokovic will play Gasquet first.

    They showed the schedule after the end of 1st set of the 2nd SF and Fed and Nole are scheduled to play on Tuesday evening.

    As for the prediction, it's either Fed in 2 or Nole in 3.

    Djokovic in 3. Slow start by Novak as usual then gears it up.

    Federer in 3. Lost money on him today but I think he won't let Novak beat him this time.

    Fed, Djoko and Delpo are in the same group? Again? :shock: (they were in the same side in Paris). I really like Rafa's chance at winning the whole thing now or at least reach final, vamos :)

    Hum that's true. Which one of the 3 would you pick for Rafa in the semi? I'd pick a tired Delpo although I'm hesitating: this may be the year Rafa finally gets a win vs Fed. Ah no, still too scary. I don't want Fed/Djoko before final. Delpo is the most mentally vulnerable of the 3. (Oops sorry I thought you were a Rafa fan, ouch, ignore my question, everyone has the same avatar now, it's too confusing).

    So I am right to assume that both Federer and Nadal will play on Wednesday because Djokovic and Ferrer have less time overall to recover?

    Confidence is good but not arrogance. Look at what happened to the Nadal fans today who were claiming Nadal would cakewalk to the final. Nobody thought Fed would take out Nole at RG 2011. Anything can happen. Don't count the old man out just yet!

    But back to the OP, I agree with the majority. Either Federer in 2 or Nole in 3.

    Yes, Fed has a good change to beat tired Djokovic. No time to rest after the Bercy final.

    Be sure to let us know how you perceive the court speed and the bounce height.

    Have fun!

    This court surface suits Federer's game to a tee. However, Djokovic is just too strong right now for Federer.

    Djokovic in 3 (or two close sets)

    So, this is gonna be your excuse that Djokovic is tired despite a day rest if Federer beats him?

    No excuse needed. Fed has won WTF 6 times and was in the final for the last 3 seasons. Obviously he has a reasonable chance vs anyone on any given day even in a below par year overall.

    This match will be a match where one will win the match and the other loses the match.

    Fed simply can't outlast Novak or Rafa and probably murray anymore. Novak looks like a man on a mission since he lost the No.1 ranking.Expect Novak to win in 2

    Djoko will be extremaly tired with very less time for Recovery. On that basis Fed may edge him out.

    But Djoker has recovered very well from Marathons so you never know!

    And if Federer indeed does win this, you're gonna think you 'knew' it right?
