Federer vs Wawrinka XV: What's it gonna be like?
« on: March 13, 2014, 11:31:59 PM »
It's been exactly 1 year since they last met. Roger is 13-1, having won the last 11. Stan's only win came in their 3rd meeting.

But today, North is South and East is West.

So, what do you think their next meeting will be like?

A. Will it be epic? A classic "changing of the guard" or "teacher beats back his pupil" encounter?

B. Will it be a ho-hum, lack luster, routine match?

C. Will it be a nervous mess like the early Williams Sisters matches? Remember how painful those were to watch?

D. Other


Something tells me these guys are going to hate it.

I vote C. Nervous mess.

What you say?

I vote B. Fed schools Wawa.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Booooooooooo! That's not how you play!

I'll give you an easy one, first, then you answer mine.

Tommy Haas vs God on hard courts

As I'm not a religious person that's an easy call for me.
Let me make your question more valid and relevant.

If Tommy were to play my own father I'd root for Tommy  :rofl_2:


But if you really want my answer I'm hoping for an A, because:
-Wawa is too hot for Fed these days and is more solid from the baseline
-There won't be any nervous mess because they are spending too much time together both on and off court. Playing too many doubles and they hang out a lot. It will be tight match for sure but never nervous, just like Fed-Haas matchups. Remember that silly Haas point at Wimbly vs Fed on the net?
-No routines. Fed isn't getting any younger and Wawa is peaking atm.
-And finally option A is a bit biased from my part so yeah  ..-)

I coujdn't find that option so stayed nuetral.
In any case I'll be watching and expect both to come out firing.
 
Stan looks to be tired of being Fed's lap dog me thinks.

I just saw the Wawrinka match highlights. Fed can weather a Stan onslaught because Stan never maintains his level.

I said nervous mess but my next choice is routine. Stan punishes Fed then loses his way and Fed takes control. It becomes routine because Stan never gets back in the match. He succumbs meekly. So, I've got Fed but not a good match.

If Federer play as well as today he can defeat Wawrinka easily.

He won the Australian Open because Nadal was injuried.

Man, take off those rose colored glasses. Roger won easily today not because he did anything special. He won easily because Nole was injured.

Either way, tennis wins. It's gonna be a match of shotmaking instead of grinding.  :king: :king: :king: :king:

I don't care what it'll be. -- as long as a Roger wins! I love Stan too, but he's my 2nd favorite! He's playing my #1 favorite tomorrow! GO ROGER!!! (But I won't be too sad if Stan wins either).

OMFG imagine the severe drop in viewers who prefer to watch 2 twinkies play pattycake and pretend it's 'amazing tennis'.

I hope Stam takes him down quickly and gets another boost of confidence going into RG.
That being said, I guess it's ok if Rogi takes it as long as it's hotly contested.
It's not aboooot da players for Moi, it's the tennis that matters da mose.
CONK da ball!!!
