O

Federer beat Rafa 6-4 6-2 6-4?

alex

omg!!

Bettyjane

O---your optimism borders on the surreal, but I hope you're right.

I'll try and be optimistic as well since it might by rainy---Fed wins 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6

O

Bettyjane, the score that is closer wins! I really hope people participate, as this might be their last meeting at FO, maybe even last meeting ever?

nick

Cloudy, occasional rain and a thunderstorm; breezy in the afternoon

Veglia

Participating to show my support for O's surreal optimism ...

Rafa wins 6:3 6:7 6:3 6:4

Gary  Lee  Moser

"show my support" is PICKING THE GUY O DIDN'T?

Neat trick!

nick

Fed in 4 . Last chance on clay and last hope on RG. As Gandalf said about Frodo's quest, a fool's hope. 6-3 7-5 4-6 6-4

O

It's a lot of fun predicting the results? when the results are in a lot of us will be like this is so obvious and how did I get it so wrong?

O

For the record, I think I am most realistic. There are many factors it's hard analyse them here? I watched the ESPN shows on AO14(Stan-Rafa) and AO17(Fedal), each time Brads analysis went comically wrong?

Has someone tried to come to the score by scientific logic like this? Think about it this way. The most unlikely result would be a Rafa victory like his previous matches 6-1 6-2 6-3? That's why the most likely outcome is a straight sets victory for Federer, I tinkered the score a little bit to come up 6-4 6-2 6-4?

I can't guarantee this will be the certified result by Friday? science has its limits?

"The most unlikely result would be a Rafa victory like his previous matches 6-1 6-2 6-3?"

"I tinkered the score a little bit to come up 6-4 6-2 6-4" ( for Federer )
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since a straight-sets win has only happened in 1 out of their 5 previous FO meetings ---
yeah...it's fair to presume that Roger won't be buried here.

But I honestly don't see how that translates into Roger burying or semi-burying Rafa here...

Alpha

Federer to win: 7-6, 6-7, 7-6, 6-7, 101-99.

At 99-99 in the 5th set, you will get the only break of serve in the match. Federer will win on his 50th match point. He will be 1 for 93 on break points.

Djokovic will strain his neck from watching this 23 hour epic and will give a walk over in the final.

Super Mario

Nadal wins in 3. 6-3 6-4 6-2.

Basically I'm expecting a re-run of FO'08, even with the slightly tinkered styles involved.

(My private wish: Nadal retires in the third set, with a completely non-threatening but urgent-to-treat injury, and Federer goes on to win FO'19)

Bento

The classic four set Federer loss seems more likely, but I'll say Federer wins 6-7, 7-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Bettyjane

Interesting...you think he can win after dropping set 1. Good...let's be positive.

Veglia

O

(History is at stake, it's very unpredictable, and I was half serious and kind of joking.) If the match drags longer I am afraid Rafa will once again come through and maybe hand Djokovic a chance to dethrone him in the finals?

alex

love this one

winner Alpha

Veglia

+1

Super Mario

Please! If it makes it more likely to happen, everyone can have it!

O

Thiem beats Djokovic: 6-4 4-6 6-4 4-6 6-4?

King Billy

A bagel seems possible. Nadal... 6-3, 6-0, 6-1.

retirement after one game - 6-1 6-0 6-0?

retirement after one game - 6-1 6-0 6-0? or 6-0 6-0 6-0?

Super Mario WTF???!!!!!

O

Winner : Super Mario - Rafa 6-3 6-4 6-2

Super Mario

Well Iโ€™m very happy to have the WoF honour, but Iโ€™m a very reluctant winner: I love both players equally, and though I perhaps have a slight edge for Rafa ultimately, today I was really rooting for Roger.

Anyway - now that the deed is done - Vamos Rafa!

Veglia

This has been THE most impressive Wall of Fame win ever. Predicting the score exactly!!! Unbelievable Super Mario

O

Warmest congratulations Super Mario!! I second Veglia's comment, you are the most impressive WOF winner, with your superior tennis knowledge and foresight.

This might be the last time we appreciate how much the weather has changed, because they will have the roof next year too. Although this is wash for tennis, we still may have some great matches left?

O

The score is totally justified as I read Rafa saying he lives on an island and knows how to deal with wind. Federer is the better indoor player. I said if it rains Rafa wins, and should have said if it winds, Rafa wins.

O

Another reason to watch the highlights on youtube instead of sitting in cold and wind on PC?

O

I seriously thought this kind of score would be the most unlikely outcome? but never thought about wind?

O

The poor crowd saw some half matches, and they can't have refund fore sure?

Tennis Planet

WINNER: SUPER MARIO.

O

Good prediction here?
