    Nalbandian and Moya should be a great final if neither choke, which I have seen them both do. If they are both playing well, I would say Nalbandian will win.

    Gonna be great. Nalbandian is better mentally, but Moya has been hot, and he can be really tough. Problem is, Nalbandian is so consistent, and is just so damn tough. Nalbandian has a deadly backhand to deny Moya hitting forehands, and Moya's backhand straight sucks we all know, plus bandy can return really well. I can still see Moya dominating with the forehand for sure though, and having one of those days where he can actually rally kinda well with his backhand. If he has an on day, he'll beat Nalbandian regardless. I voted Moya, but I really think it's 50-50.

    I think if Moya has a good serving day then he can win. If Carlos can get that big serve in and rip the forehand and have it as easy as that on his serve then there will be a lot of pressure on Nalby to keep his serve and thats not the greatest part of his game...Moya wins in 4.

    It will be a good final Moya will be in a final on clay against a top claycourter . He {Moya} will be pushed to use all his fine talent to win which is good thing . Upshot Moya will win !!!!!!

    Moya has got to play well for this one. Hes got some holes that nalbandian can attack but hes also got the biggest weapons {serve fore}. My money is on Nalbandian but I really hope Moya will win hes always been a favourite of mine.

    Lets hope we get a great final.

    Moya's got more game. If he can execute his style of play and move Bandy with the big forehand, I saw Moya in 3 sets.

    It's been so long since there's been a great final, & I really hope this one sees both in top form. Lately there has been a total collapse from one of the finalists in every tournament.

    So far it's been pretty good, Nalbandian a little rusty or nervous, who knows, but Moya is playing great. Also, pretty sure it's best of 5, which makes it that much better.

    Moya was just so dominant. Nalbandian was tired, but Moya just hit everything. Even won a point with a through the legs aproach shot, it was just surreal tennis

    I didn't get to watch it but it sounds like Nalbandian got killed.

    Moya has been on fire, especially with the win over Pavel, that was amazing.

    He looks good to put another French to his GS collection. Which i'm sure will please PCMD :wink: . Not if my JC has anything to do with it!

    I'd love to see Moya play Ferrero again. It's been so long, and they had the best matches in 2002.

    If Moya goes all the way at the French, I'd be insanely pleased.

    Not if Andre has anything to do with it! Nice win though Carlos! Who was the one that called that Moya had to much game for Nalby?

    Andre vs. Moya at the French? It's obvious that Moya would take that match...I hope :wink:

    But ya, Moya is huge right now, he'll win the French...

    I am saying Ferrero will win as he always does well there.
    But there must be someone who is on form who can win, and that person has to be Moya and I think he deserves it after his terrible injury.

    My outsider is Henman and Safin.
