Polls are very straight forward. Am looking for a bit more input than that. I believe there are one too many things that will favour Andy tomorrow. For instance,
- the crowd (undoubtedly)
- less pressure (not a Slam final)
- experience of playing in a much bigger stage already (Wimby final)
- confidence (I do get the feeling he's booming with confidence)
- finally, his opponent (Federer may just be a bit too mentally exhausted after the semi but more importantly, he'll be nervous)
The only thing that can go against him is the weather but I am even positive about that as I don't feel that will be a factor this time. He knows what he did wrong last time so he won't repeat his mistakes.
Andy's serves will be the most crucial aspects of this match. If he's feeling confident, then he will continue to serve bombs. Andy looks relaxed and happy and that means he's feeling confident. He'll be aggressive no doubt and won't wait for Federer to make mistakes. In other words, he'll be pro-active. 70-30 Andy.
Do you mind if I take credit for my prediction for this match like Sir Panda? Thanks.
