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.
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?
Roger schools him in 8 sets, donating a couple for fun.
There's a visual I needed - thanks.
Both players are allowed 10 minutes access to a CVAC 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
I had just 10 poll options.
Also! While saving some 61 matchpoints and saving 80 break points
Freds break point conversion rate of the match? 7/141
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
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.
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.
Haha, you are crazy. Thanks for the lol
With numerous trips to the bathroom for lance....."it's amazing Patrick, every time he comes back from a comfort break it's like he's completely rejuvenated"
"Yes, that's because he's emptying the contents of a doctor's cabinet into his body each time"
The point of this thread was actually this, for me. Djokovic obviously has more stamina but that will run out, eventually. The 4 sets will be even, Djokovic will be favored in the 5th, 6th, and 7th sets, but then he'll tire out. Federer will have tired out by the 5th set. So after the 7th set, both are essentially tired out. Then it becomes game of hitting winners and playing first-strike Tennis. Wouldn't Federer be favorite then? Or would Djokovic, with slightly more juice left in him tough it out? I would like to see this match just to know what would win out.
It's not a joke thread. I wanted this to be a discussion.
Djokovic in 11 but either due to a "lucky" shot at MP in the 11th or a bad call that Fed doesn't challenge on BP.
