Nishikori vs Federer - Basel Open Final 2011
 
Who will win?

Haha, the trophy's already been engraved with the maestro's name.

RyKnocks 11-05-2011 09:08 AM

Nishikori is playing like a beast right now but I still give the edge to Federer.

Wawrinka in 3...

kishnabe 11-05-2011 09:19 AM

Wow I just woke up to see that Djokovic lost to Nishikori and top of that a bagel.

Watch out Federer....

All-rounder 11-05-2011 09:21 AM

Ken is full of surprises I think he'll take a set.
Fed in 3

Fed needs to beat Wawrinka in the semi, in case you didn't know.:twisted:

Oh yes I remember his swiss lapdog how could I forget :)

And Wawrinka beating Federer is akin to Roddick beating Federer. Unpossible.

Mick 11-05-2011 09:36 AM

wow. what a shocking outcome.

Hood_Man 11-05-2011 09:37 AM

Well, if Federer actually reaches the final, I'd say him in 3. Nishikori has played really well this week.

Telepatic 11-05-2011 09:48 AM

Nishi will win and bagel mono Fed with back injury.

Novak is still rusty. He hasn't look like he's there the whole time. He doesn't look fit enough or in shape enough to do damage at the Masters. He seemed a bit gingerly and tentative with his serves and stretching out. He wasn't willing to go for it as much. I think he's rusty and worried about getting re-injured. Novak does have a tendancy to pull back when he's worried about his health.

He also really seemed to check out after going down 0-3 in the 3rd set. I wasn't surprised at that point that he got bageled, he just wanted out in my opinion.

Djokovic doesn't need to play anymore. He's finishing the year as #1 and has already won the WTF in 2008. He has nothing really to defend. Look onward to the AO in 3 months.

NadalAgassi 11-05-2011 10:43 AM

Federer I think. He rarely loses at home. Hoping for Nishikori though.

This is true, he doesn't need to play well. He didn't look like his heart was in it in Basal. I could see him taking it easy during Paris and WTF, simply treating them as training, and trying not to re-injure himself.

is this nishikori's first 5oo final?

I don't know, but I see this going to 3 sets.

Hitman 11-05-2011 11:33 AM

Really happy for Kei today, great potential, and it is always heartening to see new blood coming through. However, I will be cheering for Roger, I would love to see him get to 70 titles soon.
