    I don't think Federer will ever get another win off Djokovic or Nadal, unless one of them gets injured or seriously chokes, or the wind is too strong for Djokovic or the clay is too damp for Nadal.

    He is 32 with a thousand matches in his legs. For God's sake, get real and put those glasses on.

    Please Fed. Still by far more talented player. Djokovic = stamina, pushing and waiting for errors. Let's hope Fed comes in with the right gameplan in this match.

    Djokovic in 2. These courts are too slow.

    I got a feeling Fed is winning this one. Maybe I'm way off, but I don't know...feels like he's gonna avenge his Paris loss. We'll see.

    Dude, check the official website.

    Regardless of who plays and where you sit on the lower tier - the price is the same. £62 for a lower tier seat, it doesn't matter if you sit front row or back row of lower tier. Same price.

    The view is good no matter where you sit, personally I like watching it from the view on television. (115 or 116, or the same seats opposite end)

    If Fed couldn't beat Djoko in Paris I don't see how he can beat Djoko here. The court is much slower and the ball is bouncing too high.

    Tournament directors really want a Nadal vs. Djokovic final. I'd laugh really hard if somehow they ended up with a Ferrer vs. Wawrinka instead.

    Slow court might help Fed. Just like RG, he can use a lot of variety but I really don't know. Depends on which Fed shows up, how Djokovic is feeling? Too many variables and its a toss up. This could just be a straight forward boring match.

    I think Federer is still capable of beating Nadal or Djokovic under right condition. I think he may pull off an upset here.

    Whoever wins, won't beat Nadal on this disgusting thing they call a surface.

    Maybe ATP wanted to create a dramatic comeback year for Nadal. That will sell really well.

    The key might be not who is playing better tennis but how much fuel they have left in their tank.
    Djokovic had 1 day less to prepare after Bercy but Federer is playing for his third straight week.

    Voted for Novak in 2 but you just know Federer will come out throwing bombs.

    Ditto. Voted Nadal to win the whole thing. Everything is in his favor. Draw. Well rested. Courts are now freaking weirdo "Hard" courts.
    Disgusting is too soft of a word. Vile disgusting swine surface is more apropos feel free to add another word on to it.
    WTF is done in my book now.....AO is a slightly better surface. Maybe they will slick that one up a bit in 2014.....

    One can only dream! Shankerer will probably show up and given the high bounce and the slowness of the court, I really don't see Fed winning :(

    I hope that djokovic bagels Federer today. This is the only way organizers will make faster court. :evil:

    No that only adds to the reasons. Djokovic is playing great. Federer? not even close. Conditions don't even favor him so I don't see him losing this.

    Me too. At the point now where we need Fed to be a sacrificial lamb just to get conditions more balanced.

    I was really enjoying this Djokovic. Now, Djokovic will resort to that '2013 grinding mode Djokovic'. :(

    I never argue with those who bet. Is there some secret thing you know about today?

    I dread that Nole. Such a vile form of playing style when all one does is grind and rally. It is all one is able to do. Forced into a grinding tactics. No other choice.
    It is/was such a breathe of fresh air observing Nole adapt and develop his all court and fast court skills. Novak will take the place of Federer as the fast court king and the iron man. Mark my words.

    True and they basically are extinct. Asian swing and 1st week Big W still have some semblance of master class action.

    He said that rogers movement has deteriorated over the last year or so , not a necessarily crude remark , I just think since the two don't have the best relationship that Roger might want to prove him wrong and beat him

    Hopefully. You can't blame Djokovic for saying that though because it is true. Roger used to "float" around the court with gracefulness. Now, it seems like he struggles...especially when hitting that running forehand.

    Compare this handshake with the one 3 days ago, that's hilarious and sad at the same time.
