Well, I still think it could go to either 4 or 5 sets. I followed the way he played at Doha, just a few weeks ago. He was aggressive, still has the passion for it and dominated all of his matches apart from the final. He didn't just win, he was emphatic. I can see him taking the first set off of Federer and if he get's lucky with a tie break it could go to 5.
Having said that, Federer has had an awesome year and is well rested. The guy can do anything. This will be fun.
