If anyone can pull the upset, this is the guy.  Having said that....I'll take Federer in 4 sets.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

Federer in 3 sets.   Agassi was Federer's toughest test.   He passed it.   Fedex is unbeatable when he gets in his zone, unless he gets sick like he did in the Wimbledon final against Roddick which left him vurnerable.
So unless he gets the flu or some other ailment, Federer has 6 sets straight to the trophy.

I'd have to say that Safin is more dangerous than Agassi when his head is screwed on right. But that said, Federer in 3 tight sets.
GO FED!!!
I've been a tennis bum for half my life.
I'll just be a bum for the other half.

I've said it b 4 and I'll say it again Agassi & Safin are the only guys in the draw that stand a remote chance at beating the Fed. Now that Agassi is gone -- in quite an embarrasing loss - it makes me wonder if Marat stands much of a chance either.

Agassi I said becuz of his US OPEN match where he almost took Fed out. And Safin becuz of that insanely close tiebreaker that Safin nearly pulled out a while ago ( it was something like 19-17).

If Safin can bring out the kinda results that kept him in that tiebreaker consistently thru the match -- then he just may have a chance.

I'm still gonna say Federer in 4 but I dont think it'll be easy. Safin is my numero uno player to root for now.

While Fed has won in straight sets in their last 3 matches, 4 of the 7 sets went to tiebreakers, including an unbelievable one in Houston (I think 20-18). I would be pretty surprised if Marat can't take a set off Federer, even as Federer's tennis seems ever more otherworldly.
