Who do you Want to win FO

Literally anyone but Nadal. I will support every player who has the misfortune of playing him but it would be extremely satisfying if he got knocked out by someone he dislikes or doesn't want to lose to. Maybe Djokovic or Kyrgios or a magically recovered Rosol.

Rafa, next in line is Thiem. Next would be Tsitsipas but the way he's been playing lately...nuh-uh.
I love the way FAA plays but I think he lacks the experience to win the FO currently.

Kyrgious has proved to be useless against nadal on clay, time and time again.
Djokovic no longer possesses the firepower of his prime to go toe-to-toe with nadal on Phillipe Chatrier; and even then he required nadal to be a shadow of himself to beat the Spaniard; so I don't think Djokovic stands a chance either.
Rosol, or any big server will have their hands full on RG against nadal, because clay is clay.
 
Lol

Fognini never won a match against even half decent Nadal, not even talking about good Chatrierdal.
He can trouble nadal a lot on high bouncing surfaces, no matter what form they both are in. Recall 2017 madrid, 2018 rome, 2019 Montreal (actually toyed with nadal till he got injured in Montreal)
And in all those matches fognini won, nadal was considered a heavy favorite coming into the clash.

Fedovic fans will be united in this one I reckon. I don't think fans of Federer trusts Thiem to beat Nadal and keep Feds record safe.
Djokovic winning a slam will not make Federer's record "safe", you know. This will only increase the chances of Federer being surpassed by two players.

Somehow Nadal always plays like hot garbage against Fognini, I have no idea why. In Madrid 2017, Rome 2018 and Montreal 2019 that were his worst matches of the tournament. And MC 2019 semifinal was arguably Nadal's worst ever match on clay.

I'm down for it if Djokovic fans don't try to push the Djokovic is way better at RG than Fed narrative.

I would want Murray to win it , however it's impossible!!!
Highly unlikely but not impossible! What if every single player he's supposed to play comes down with something and he get's a free pass into the final and then has to play someone who is absolutely no threat to him. Like, i don't know? Isner? lol

Lol been a hard 15 years for you then? On the bright side one day he will lose so you will be happy eventually. Even Nadal has to lose one day

If federer and djokovic fans unite that suggests deep down an acceptance they feel Nadal is greatest of the three. Cannot believe any fed fan would want djokovic to win as would definitely push him ahead of Federee overall in most peoples eyes.

Djokovic wins FO with Nadal in field this year Djolovic is GOAT of this era. Interesting Federer fans rooting for him

Don't know about WAY better but with a 2nd title he is better. Best would be Thiem winning for double happiness for Fed but lets see. Thiem is capable now.

For Federer fans Nadal winning is better than Djokovic winning definitely. Even at 20 each the GOAT debate is arguable. Djokovic wins FO by beating Nadal it is over. Djokovic would be GOAT this era

Ever cared to watch 2015 Rolland garros Qf??

And tbh, fognini has the game to trouble nadal (hitting on the rise, stunning ballstriking), that's why nadal looks like playing garbage vs him..

Winning 2 or more slams at the majors would be huge for Djoko but at the same time I don't see how the fans would want Nadal rather tying 20 slams. Federer is back next year at the AO, and with Nadal on 19 still, he would have an opportunity to have a say on it himself and fend off players standing in his way.

Look, If it's a final between Nadal and djoko, I believe the rooting will be for Djoko.

Status quo aka Nadal or Thiem/field imo is best. Nadal winning RG is expected. It won't change goat debate much. Djokovic winning another as far as stats go isn't what I would prefer. Fed fans always have an argument for peak level though because of 2011, so not all bad.

I just want drama. Fine with Nadal winning it, but please give us some drama.

I want to reach that 100 page match thread summit.

Can't happen if Nadal is spankin ppl in sub 2 hours.
Nadal and drama? I don’t see it. :unsure:

Oh wait, maybe one of his bottles will fall due to the wind :oops: :-D

Yeah, that's why this photo was taken in November, 2018, buddy. Pandemic wasn't around then. So take your lying azz someplace else.

Did you honestly think I would do that to myself? I mean, there are deranged fans on this site (not going to name names) but I'm not one of them. It was a joke but I guess it flew over your head. I'll try harder next time. Comedy is not my specialty unfortunately or maybe you take things too seriously (because you had to image search my post to see if it was legit, hahaha!!!!).

Rublev. Then Garin. Then Sinner.
So, no real contenders then. If it looks like the inevitable happening, I won't even watch it.

Well it will be the final so get your popcorn to hand. Do you feel federer has more majors left in him?
