Not to bothered, probably Nadal though. However, hope they play a long physical match that lasts 5 hours! Bring the popcorn! :D
No way its 5 sets. If Federer feels it physically he will lose as im almost certain losing to Nadal will bother him way less than a 3rd defeat to Djokovic....in fact the Djokovic match at start of day may well determine outcome of Fedal.

The question is rather; "which player do you want Novak to crush in the final?".

I dont know if you (Nole-fans) really support Fed, maybe you just want Nole to beat the grass-GOAT in the final? :unsure::)

There are more Federer and Nadal fans that voted in that poll than Djokovic fans. Lol

For Djokovic fan, it does not matter. Just wish fed and Nadal will play physical match which will go to 5 sets and last over 4 hrs.
Honest answer at least. Thumbs up.

However, guessing that Fedr will try to keep the points short, so a five setter will not likely tire out The Bull.
A five setter with Nole is another matter.

I agree. As If Agut was to upset Djokovic, that match would become the real final!
Lets be honest, Djokovic will straight set RBA. Federer has absolutely no chance of beating Djokovic. Nadal has a chance to beat Djokovic so would be a better match although I am a bit fearful of an AO repeat as Rafa is relying on short rallies like he did in Australia.

Basically your guy has one hand on the trophy.

LOL. Federer was recovering from mono and was hardly a shadow of his former self.

Highest level BAAH!
Exactly. Both AO finals were higher levels of play. W08 is marketing, just because it was close and was change of the guard. Heck I think Rafa in 2018 was higher level than in 2008. But Fed was so terrible in 2008 that it was enough for Fed. Heck even FO 11 was higher level of tennis.

Losing a set to RBA should quell the notion he will "crush" either Fed or Rafa in the final. He's not looking anywhere near his 2015 form. It will probably be good enough to win the tournament, but his likelihood of annihilating anyone in the final is slim now.

Not really. One might be hard, though. He will win in two hard and one easy set against Novak.
What does "hard" mean? That it is physically hard, or that it's close? You can cruise to tie-break than a few shots and win 7-6 in the tie-break or you can grind 6-0 set like Rafa does and make it hard too, what exactly does hard mean?

Hard as in "Roger/Novak will hang to his serve battling for his games, while Rafa will win his with 0, or one point lost"

I always cheer for Fed in Fedal matches. But I really want them to kill each othet in a 5 setter ;)

As a totally neutral fan of the game, I'd like to see a hard fought and entertaining battle.

Also, wouldn't it be fitting that the first ever final set 12-12 tiebreaker was played between these two greats?

;)

Was Novak just trying to elongate the match so that Rafa-Fed would get delayed and have to carry over the next day ? :D :D (That thought did run through my head for a second in that set).

Whoever Djokovic fans want to win out of Fedal shows who they believe is the lesser player as clearly they want the guy who has less chance v Djokovic.

The poll above suggest most Djoker fans want Federer, which is a backhanded compliment (and a massive one as its grass) to Nadal. Thanks guys...if roles reversed id want Federer to beat Novak as well. Mutual respect and fear lol.
Yes

Tank guys!

:oops:
