[Looks like it's Federer vs Nadal.]
Who are you all going for? For me, look at av.
Nadal wins final set tie-break!
Fed against Nadal in Dubai?
Dubai is a slow hardcourt. I'd put money on Nadal(especially since the oddsmakers will underate him)
Fed will be victorious. He doesnt lose on hardcourts or grass. He is only slightly vulnerable on clay and carpet if he has a broken ankle.
For the horde...lol.
I've seen that baby pic before...but where?
that will be interesting
The match won't be played until tomorrow, was it really necessary to move it to this section before then?
This match results section has really made the pro player section rather boring.
Well, all we have to do is move basically all of the threads that used to be in pro player talk into match discussion, and then we'll have an interesting match discussion forum!
"Tomorrow is going to be a very special match," Nadal said. "I am very happy to make it to the finals in only my second tournament after four months. Federer is a finals specialist, but I have won my last 10 finals, too."
Nadal is pumped up. Federer is Federer. Both of these guys are nearly unbeatable. I don't think there's a favorite in this match - Nadal is 1-1 against Federer on hardcourts but Federer wasn't feeling well in one match and Nadal nearly beat him in straight sets the other then lost in 5. Then on clay, Federer says it was the worst semifinal he's played, but was that because Nadal put him off his game? It's hard...but damn, I'll pick Federer. Surely by now he's figured out Nadal's game.
If Federer loses, Nadal might end up being the dominant player this year.
Whatcha ya'll drinking?? This match is between the player ranked #1 and #67.. hehe.. I know where to put the money.
As per http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/headtohead/head2head.asp?player1=federer&player2=nadal
Hope Fed wins but my gut tells me Nadal will be the last man standing this time.
just saw that Nadal is +250 on sportsbetting. i know fed's the man, but those odds are nuts. that's a very good bet imo
I think Nadal will win.
I think Fed is looking to start his finals streak again!
If I were a betting man, I'd probably take those +250 odds and go for Nadal. He's always given Federer trouble so what makes people think that will change? I have a feeling Fed will come through, but Nadal's got an equal chance and I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see him fall down on his back in victory at the end of this match.
Nadal is stoping Federer in 3
my vote to Fed, but it won't easy game for Fed (imo).
I predict this year will show the dominant rivalry between Fed-Nadal, they will meet in finals each other often as long as nadal stay health from injury.
Match started match. Federer broke Nadal in the 2nd game. Fed leads 2-1.
Live score says 3-0.
Fed leads 3-0, and it is only 10 minutes in. Fed is making Nadal hit his backhand and thats what is killing him. Federer already has like 4 aces as well. Seems like Nadal cant get any pace on the ball.
Sorry I made a mistake while typing.
Wow, well my stepdad just kicked me out of his room which is the only place I could watch the TTC. GREAT!
Anyone watching this live, how do Fed and Nadal compare today to previous rounds with things like unfroced errors?
Just by looking at stats seems like Fed has more problem with Nadal's 2nd serve than his 1st! How strange is that.
Fed takes 1st set 6-2. I guess school is in session.
I think Federer has been watching Nadal tapes, or something. He's all over him.
Federer playing extremely cleanly. Nadal playing 6-8 feet behind baseline and getting run around like the way Agassi does to his opponents. Fed coming in a lot and volleying very solid. Both guys moving well. Extremely clean set by Fed not much Nadal could do. 2nd set about to begin
FED cannot have played better. Wonderful to watch.
Is there an internet feed for this match?
nadal cant handle slice, and moonballs
That western grip does seem to be difficult with FED's low and heavy slice.
Give up bro! I already have.
nadal has been playing better this second set
also, that camera theyre using is horrible, you cant see nadal most of the time
I can't give up. It's not in my nature. Where there's a Federer there's a way!
I thought the same thing...Fed goes up to put a ball away and Nadal is so far in the back court that he is out of the picture.
The low angle camara is cool though for showing spin and net clearance.
Unbelievable, Nadal wins
Great great GREAT match
Federed seemed to choke a little bit in the last game...
Now is 3-1 head to head. I don´t know if Nadal is getting Federer´s number.
way to Nadal.. Fed numbers are counting if others can learn something from Nadal
Seems like Federer can't figure out counterpunchers the first few times he plays them, like Hewitt and Nalbandian, now Nadal, all different styles of counterpuncher that trouble Fed..
he still can't figure out Nalbadian for sure and now Nadal good
Roger also has said he doesn't really like playing lefthanders, and I think that's an edge Rafa has.
Didn't see the match, but what a surprise. I thought Fed would win.
