What do you think?
( poll coming )
Quarters to Berdy or maybe Delpo
Probably in the semi to Rolaids.
Federer in 2.
(Wait, why isn't round 2 an option ?)
In the third round, to Djokovic.
Obviously the OP wasn't thinking when he created this thread, he was only trolling and trying to whip up some attention for himself.
Once the silly posts start piling up, I can get into some action (read: poasting gifs).
I dont see him losing before the semis. He is playing his best tennis in years now. Berdych isnt mentally strong enough to beat an in form Federer, and Del Potro isnt powering the ball like he used to yet and without that extra power he has no chance vs Federer as their matches this year emphatically show. I think it is 50/50 to whether he loses to Djokovic in the semis or to Nadal in the final. Pretty much zero chance vs Nadal in the final if he makes it, and with no threats to Nadal in his half, thus zero chance of winning the French barring a miralce (Djokovic atleast would have a fighting chance if he makes it to the final).
My thoughts as well. However, one can hope for a 2009-like miracle.
Yes if someone takes Nadal out somehow, then Federer has a reasonably good chance. His chances to beat Djokovic would actually increase then, since Federer would be more motivated with another FO title a clear possability suddenly, while Djokovic might be a bit scared as he would really feel the title was his to lose then. Last year while he didnt play badly I think Djokovic buckled under the pressure a little bit, but Nadal ever going out would place the pressure even more squarely on his shoulders.
Quarters to Berdych or semis to Djoker
Quarters to berdych or semis to Djokovic. Final maybe to Nadal. There's only 3 people in the draw Roger can lose to on clay, and all three are there to beat him: QF, SF, F
I have no idea which round Federer will lose in, but I'll be hoping he loses in every round. I just hope Del Potro loses sometime soon so he doesn't get in the way of Berdych. Del Potro has no chance against Federer. Even prime Del Potro (2009) couldn't beat Federer (and that was a very nervous Federer who was down 2 sets to love vs Haas).
Fed will lose to DP.
Why would you want Fed to lose in every round? Don't you like tennis? Oh...you are one of "those" who prefer pushing moonballs with constant cheating and time wasting. Seriously, did you bandage that right hand of yours? I'm scared for your injuries...
I'm scared of Federer getting in the way of a Djokovic Nadal final.
Dedan's Penthouse? Yeah, that would be cool.
Federer being in the final against Nadal would mean 2 things: Nole not winning 4 in a row, and Nadal not winning 7th RG
1st round 2013 French Open!
This poll is absolutely incredible.....do you guys realize Federer actually won this poll as well. The informed TW board has spoken ......it's pick for the 2012 FO is Federer.....
I swear if there was a new religion with Federer a the messiah there would be a new religion today. In fact there already is.
Thi poll shows how completely blind and biased this site is.
If it were not so sad it would be funny.
Most likely in the SF to Djokovic. I don't think he will have too much trouble against Delpo
I've noticed that, whereas espn tends to be a Nadal forum.
Not in 1st round
50th win at RG ... tied with connors for most matches won in GS and 50th consecutive GS appearances (3rd player to do so)
You need to let this build up, let it rise, let it simmer, and let it grow. You need to savour every moment, enjoy the journey, and hold back from pulling the trigger too soon. This needed to be several pages before you cried out.
In short... you have my friend, come too early.
Unless Ralph has some type of injury or absolutely crazy upset i'd just as soon see him bomb out in the quarters or semis.... I've accepted the fact that on clay major final Ralph is going to win in a 5 set match 10 times out of 10
Sorry but you're wrong actually.
The poll isnt significant until it reaches a certain amount fo voter to respond to a statistical law call the normal law.
if you read the question of the poll correctly: the question is not who is gonna win the FO, the question is about and only about RF.
So the hypothesis of him making the final or winning is a probability that should be considered very strongly into this specific poll. It's strongly correlated to this poll much more to a general poll who would be "who's gonna win the FO?"
So you're wrong, this poll is very accurate and is significant as we reached > 31 voters at the moment
But this poll has nothing to do with a general aspect or preference of the forum.
btw, RF is the GOAT
Roger Federer is NOT gonna lose any match in French Open 2012
Roger Federer French Open 2012 Champion
I hope this prediction is true.
(Fed needs to cut down on the unforced errors)
Not gonna happen. Federer is prone to unforced errors because he doesn't give 100% effort to his footwork. And sometimes at the net, he doesn't even bend his knees. You get what you give. It's who he is. He's never been a blue-collar worker, and never will be (relatively speaking to the highest standard of blue-collar workmanship). Fortunately, he's got enough talent to pull off enough shots without being perfectly positioned. But it will cost him at times.
The court is too slow this year I feel.
I would be amazed if Federer doesn't win wimbledon this year though.
Its time for Atp/Itf to build Rolaids and Nadulls mythology, to captivate mainstream attention and interest like what was occurring during the ******/Fedflunk era of 2005-2010.
So they must make a clear path for the new kings of tennis, and give Fedflunk a difficult draw.
******** out in qtrs or semis.
I'll be amazed if Federer beats Nadal at Wimbledon this year though, after seeing his last 2 QF exits.
I gather, you would be cheering for a Federer vs. Nadal SF then.:twisted:
Yes, just as I was asking/pleading for a Fedal SF at this RG. Now that Federer is in Djok's half, I'm hoping for Federer to lose so Djok can make the final. But yeah at Wimbledon, if Federer is in the same half as Nadal I do hope Federer makes the semi. But if Federer is again in Djok's half, I hope Federer gets out of the way.
It is pretty funny and proof of why any poll on planet TW is irrelevant.
I hope Federer loses as early as possible. He needs to retire and take care of his kids.
Sad? You know you're right, it's the tragedy of the century that people are fans and vote that way on meaningless internet polls. Please don't tell me you're perturbed over Fed Fanatics ruining the sanctity of a tennis forum poll. People like who they like. It's people like you that ruin the board. Just let it go and don't get your jimmies in a twist.
1 down, 6 more to go!
Really? Why not just call this board "the Federer Warehouse".....at least then it would be honest .
I mean come on......how can Federer be possibly picked as the favorite ? It goes against everything.
I think the accurate title begins with the world cult--a self destructive cult to be sure.
Remember, there also a small group of Federer cult members with multiple accounts (some banned over time, but they sneak in eventually), which would explain why Fed-centric polls on TW go in a certain direction.
I am going to avoid the "fan boy" and "troll" picks here and go with what sounds logical.
Odds are Fed will loose in semis to Djoker unless an injury/major upset happen.
He's still a grasshopper. :neutral:
Just like last year's major "upset"?
It doesn't matter .....Fed cant lose . You can point it out stand on your head or whatever ......he will never lose any poll here at Federer Warehouse .
If you want to complain about the general views of the posters here, then please do us all a favor and leave. We don't need new users who complain about the make-up of this forum.
UNGER? has no HUNGER LOL!!!!
Fed will choose when it is time to lose...
The quarter to Berdych is going to be hellish, Roger wants Wimby and the Olympics and if he has a Czech mate on the other side of the net that day who is buring up the clay he will ease out and let the chips fall where they may cause his big chance to get to back #1 is Wimby and the Olympics and what happens after that...let Djoker and Ralfie fight it out and come out laggards in the two grass tourneys. But really there is so slight a difference in the top 4 guys it comes down to desire on the day against the rest of the field, against each other it is all about execution.
this rolaids thing is gold, but djesus was too...why did you give it up?...either way it's genius
I'm not "complaining" rather I'm "exposing" the complete and utter bias on tie board.
