I'd like to see a best-of-11 set match between Federer and Djokovic
 
Who do you think would win if the reward was $10M for the winner? Played on USO Hards.

Djokovic in 7. Fed would cramp after going down 4-1.

Could be close for five sets, maybe 3-2 Djokovic, but then he would run away with it as Federer reached his fitness threshold. Djokovic in 8!

I'll take Wawrinka in 6

Wawrinka d Djokovic

6-1 7-5 4-6 6-7 6-7 7-6 6-1 4-6 7-5 3-6 112-110

And Warinka led 40-0 at 5-3 in the 11th

Nah, I think Djokovic will crash hard into his fitness ceiling before winning 6 sets and then the match will come down to whoever can smack winners/dictate play better from a stationary position.

That match would go on for at least a week?

Yes, this is what I was thinking too.

damned... 'connors in 5' doesn't even work in this thread ! :-?

Poll is wrong, minimum number of sets won is 6, if it is a straight-sets victory.

kishnabe 01-23-2013 03:31 PM

How about a 1 set shotgun set.....Federer would win 6-4!

Best of 11.....Djokovic will win in 11 sets coming back from a 5 set deficit.

$10 million?? More like $100 million in prizes and 10 free GS titles. Insanity.

How about best of 13? ... just to keep up the bad luck...
How about a match between Serena/Sharapova vs Dimitrov - best out of 69?

Nathaniel_Near 01-23-2013 03:50 PM

Roger schools him in 8 sets, donating a couple for fun.

Both players are allowed 10 minutes access to a **** POD after every 2 sets, Djokovic takes full advantage of this, Wawrinka decides that some strange POD device may only further weaken his mental capacity, so instead he pulls out his iPhone and watches videos of federer to keep himself pumped

Also! While saving some 61 matchpoints and saving 80 break points

Freds break point conversion rate of the match? 7/141

Towser83 01-23-2013 05:13 PM

These days I'd say 6-4 or 6-3 to Djokovic (so Djokovic in 9 or 10) Federer in 2007-2009 against Djokovic from that time would probably win 6-2 (at the US Open) Fed ves Djokovic in 2005-2006 with both players in that time Federer wins 6-0. Prime fed vs prime djokovic is a hard one tocall, but USO still suits Federer more, Fed in 10

Relinquis 01-23-2013 05:14 PM

Federer in 9.

After Novak gets less able to run down every single shot, it will happen eventually, it will become about skill. After set 6-7 they'll both be playing like elderly versions of themselves.

Novak has little vs. Federer if you take away his ability to run down shots and his athleticism advantage. Fewer weapons at that stage and less able to play with touch.

Netspirit 01-23-2013 06:30 PM

It will be very close. In the end Federer will S&V and C&C his way to the victory, Djokovic is limited to his baseline game.
