I think Djokovic has
a transcendent chance to beat him as I predicted couple of months back.

I don't get it. You backed Moya against Djokovic. And now you are backing Djok against Federer. You don't really have a favorite, do you?

When it started I was pulling for 3 players, Moya, Hewitt and Blake and there not playing in the final so I've seen enough of Djokovic to see that he has the game to dethrone the G.O.A.T.

Sampras is my favorite, So my Favorite players are the ones who can deny Federer Slams 14 and 15 or just delay the inevitable.

I dont think too many people are surprised with the final two. By the time Federers through with Novak, the Serb'll have to dig real deep to find the heart to make any further impersonations. Btw, did any of you guys catch his one of Nadal? Spot on!

I play frequently, or rather - I used to. For the past couple of months, I've transitioned to soccer. I still catch the odd game once a week though...

Novak beat Federer in Montreal. So Federer will be careful. And probably end up winning quite easily.

What an irony!!
Djokovic had 5 set points in the first set and 2 in second, but Federer is leading 2-0.

Federer knows how to win. Djokovic simply loses his nerve at crucial points.

I have to admit except those moments, today he is playing as good as Federer, if not better.

There are plenty of unforced errors - 69(32-Fed,39-Djo) from both players so far.

It was a good game to watch despite a good number of unforced errors. Some great tennis from both players.

One genius played against the other and winning experience of Federer proved too much for Djokovic.

If he continues to play like this, he will be the world number one after Federer. He is probably slightly better than Nadal.

Choke, thats what Novak did, I mean 40-0 Triple set point and you can close it. And he was up 2 breakers in the second. He's only 20 and he's gonna win slams.

The last 4 years have been a great time to be a Federer fan.

federer rocks, he hasn't even been in very good form all year but still managed to win 3 slams. his forehand isn't as good as it has been the past couple of years and i agree that this year he has been relying much more on his serve to get him out of trouble than he use to. how long will he stay on top? it's tough to say, it depends on a lot of things e.g. court speed, form, his body, injuries etc. if wimbledon doesn't speed the courts back up i can see nadal winning wimbledon as early as next year. in terms of form well if it gets much lower then he's going to start being beaten at the slams, if it improves then he could stay on top for another few years. how long until his body and it's abilities start to decline? will it start as early as next year or will he hold up until he's 30? he's been lucky to be injury free but with his body in decline then he's more likely to get injured which futher effects his chances of winning.

djoko will win slams, but it depends on how this final effects him mentally, he should have been up 2 sets to love. if this has a negative effect on him then his record against federer could turn out like roddicks and the slam wins will take a lot longer to come.
