Yeah, just confirming if water is still H2O..
Roflmao, yeah I'll surely keep in mind the next timeHet, please lay off mixing mind-altering drugs with shots of Bacardi 151 prior to posting. Thank you.
Funnily enough Fed was underdog against Rafa at Shanghai but favourite in Miami. The more boggling thing is that his odds in IW was worse than AO!Odds:
1,5 on Thiem
2,45 on Federer
Not a surprise but dude I am not used to seeing Fed as the underdog. When was the last time he wasn't favored to win a match? 2017 Shanghai vs Nadal?
He really doesn't need to see where he stands on clay. This ain't 2009 anymore. Clay is a been there, done that for him now.I'll be surprised if Fed even gets to a TB in this match. I don't mind him losing here tbh. He needs a match like this to see where he really stands on clay atm.
If there's one guy who played garbage, that's Monfils in the first set.Rog has defeated Monfils on sheer will - he played garbage. Bo5 he probably doesn’t win it.
Thiem in two fairly comfortable sets, unless he starts slowly and Rog blitzes him. Then Thiem in 3 with the last one being a bakery product.
@HetTheGreaterer I'm not optimistic about Roger beating Thiem solely because of his age. 25 year Roger would beat him easily, but those days are long in the past. However, I disagree with some posters thinking Thiem will "destroy" Roger. I think it'll be 7-5, 6-4 for Dom. I think your 70%-30% for Thiem is accurate. It wouldn't be shocking to me if Roger somehow won. Roger beating Djoker in the next round though? I'd put that one at 88% Nole, 12% Roger.
@Hitman I have always liked Rafa more, but I have to say, I respect Djokovic perhaps a bit more. He came back from mental doldrums and nobody's ever done that in men's tennis. That was truly spectacular. I don't expect Roger to win the FO, obviously, so my second favorites would be Stan or Fognini. I would root for them over Djokovic, but in an RF final against Nadal, I would root for Novak. And I would say that even if both were sitting at, say, 18 majors. I feel Novak is too far behind Roger's slam count to catch him, so I can still root for him on occasion, even in slams. Now if he gets to 19, then I would root against him in every slam. That's my honest answer.Where does Djokovic stand for you on your list of current players to root for?
