This is a tough call for me... I like both players. However the Cinderella breakthrough story would be more satisfying, I believe. It's been many years that we have few or zero surprises on tour.

I have been pulling for Krajinovic ever since I saw him play live at a future's tournament years ago. He lost the final to Ryan Harrison but my impression was that he was the better of the two, and his career was nearly ruined at a young age by surgery and a long recovery and climb back up the rankings.

Krajinovic! His tennis is interesting and he has pretty sound technique in all areas which is nice to watch.

Sock's tennis just doesn't appeal to me.

I usually root for the guy that beats Rafa to win it but since it was just a walkover, I want Mr Socko to break through. Ppl say he'll get more chances but with everyone out right now, this is his best chance. Make 'murican tennis great again.

Maybe Sock? I would like to see him in the ATP finals instead of PCB. Though Filip winning would be glorious as well, first qualifier to win a Masters since who knows.

Vive is right, it's not Pavel.

Especially if it's true that Andrei Pavel was the last one to do it. That was a looooong time ago :D

i think pavel had a 'direct acceptance' entry into the draw (canada 2001), didn't he ?... o_O

but he lost the final of bercy 2003 as a qualifier...

Krajinovic seems to be the most in form Serbian and he gets my vote. Has a nice game.

However I don't want to see Busta or Sock at WTF.

What are my options ? kill me

I don't mind who wins, this is a massive chance for both but i think i'm leaning more towards Sock just because i feel like he deserves it more in general.

I think PCB would get destroyed by everyone at WTF if he gets there. He has been awful last few tournaments since the US Open.
I agree. Ever since the RG retirement he has been hopeless (except US Open). He doesn't stand a chance. Sock might have an okay chance in WTF but honestly unless he has his forehand firing perfectly he has less chance of winning than PCB.
 
I am for a tough match, with high-quality tennis.
If Krajinovic wins, it will be good for tennis.
Sock winning will be nice for American tennis. Or will we even notice?

Well, it would be cool to have Sock earn a spot in London, then win a match there, and end the year in the top ten.

What I mean is that he is a good player and will have more chances. This will be the last big thing in Krajinovic's career IMO.
Maybe. But maybe he had such problems with his health that if he can stay healthy he could stay where he is. He seems to have a good game.

I don't in any way dislike Sock, but I don't like his game. For one thing, it is too one-sided. He almost depends on his forehand the way Isner depends on his serve.

Sock as I’ve followed him for a couple of years. I like attacking players and he actually has some silky touch shots and great hands at the net. Don’t really want to see K’s macho nationalistic coach strip off again to show off his muscles.

More here seem to care about the fate of PCB than either finalist. Me included. PCB forever.

Hard to choose for me.

I want Krajinovic to win because its such a great story to see a futures/challenger player win a 1000. Also it trolls Forget for making those dumb comments.

But then, I live less than an hour away from Sock so he's the local hero and technically I have to root for him.

Think I'll support Kraj but if Sock wins thats cool too :)
