Enigma

Semi-Pro
If Fed can beat him with his form last year in straights, which he did, there is very little doubt that he wins again here.
Fed in 2.

I think it'd be hilarious if Anderson just sort of rolled on to win this tournament with everyone paying all their attention to Dolgo, Gulbis, Fed and Novak and completely ignoring he was there at all. But I don't think he will, and am hoping for a Fed/Dolgo semi. Voted Fed in 2

Fed is on a roll right now and playing the best he's played since 2012. No way is some journeyman gonna stall his progress. It's either Nole/Nadal or Fed all the way.
 
I am very much looking forward to a Anderson, Isner final.

Who can forget the last time they met in the final of Atlanta. Isner winning 6-7(3), 7-6(2), 7-6(2).

I'm salivating it right now.

Nice to some guys who aren't afraid to go for their shots. No baseline pushing or topspin monkey play from these men.

Anderson in his current form is a dangerous opponent. Fed will need to play well to win unless Anderson chokes.

A lot of folks appear to be underestimating Anderson here. He's come so far in this tournament for a bloody good reason, being in great form, and if he serves well, Fed may well have his hands full like he also had with Dmitri Tursunov earlier this week (how come everyone already seemed to have forgotten that very tight match?).

Furthermore, should Fed have one (or more) of his regular hiccups on his own serve, Anderson might well take advantage. I'm going with Fed in three as I expect that to happen during one of the sets.
 
Anderson doesn't move good enough, also not aggressive enough to hurt Fed. He also played 3 sets. Tursunov is a big hitter, relatively flat and quick around the court, no comparison here Fed in 2. Look for Fed to target the BH side...

I voted for Fed in 3. Anderson is dangerous especially when he's in good rhythm with his serve. I expect Fed to grind it out in the end.

Federer in a tight match.

Anderson only just narrowly lost the finals of the ATP 500 in Acapulco and is in quite stellar form—Not to mention that people forget his world ranking (18 right now). He's the forgotten man of the ATP, half the time.

Pretty much, yes. He's no posterboy, so apparently noone seems to take notice.
Quite like Julien Benneteau, who happens to be appearing in a possible semifinal as well, soon. ;)

Is this match going to take place at some point? not that I don't want to watch Dolgo/Raonic for the third time today.

1-1, Anderson has some powerful groundies. I think Fed's slice will be tough to deal with for Kev as the match goes on, I hope. Let's go Rogerrrrrrrr

Anderson saves break points and holds; when Anderson gets the first serve in he has a 100% success rate but he is only at 30 something first serve in.
