I don't think he'll win either, unless Nadal and Djoko have to pull out!

I hope not Caz. The man is a pure pain in the A--e. I can't stand him so full of himself. Hope Nole or Rafa beat him well and truly.

We are all entitled to our own opinions FCR and others, like you  - players, commentators and fans included - must see qualities in Federer I don't. Whilst I shall always respect him as one of the best players ever to grace a tennis court, his supercilious attitude, his constant snidy comments about other players and his lack of graciousness in defeat have eroded any respect I ever had for him.  If anyone deserves a Sportsmanship Award it's David Ferrer!
I did not quantify my respect for Federer, as you yourself have "that he is one of the best players to grace a tennis court", so you're not in a position to guess to what degree I have respect for him.

I would find it very difficult to respect a man who respects no one but himself......... quote]

no one but himself - please - I'm sure he respects his wife, his parents and many, many others inside and outside tennis ................................................

I meant to say earlier because I don't think anyone else has mentioned the sportsmanship of
David Ferrer in pointing out to the umpire that the ball had burst.   He lost a couple of points
after it so well done to him.      clap clap clap
clap clap clap And he mentioned that he was luck today with Andy not on form and he said sorry to Andys supporters since Andy had lost.
How nice is that guy? Not many like him.

i feel so effing horrible. still thinking of the match vs. ferrer. in his post-match interview, andy said that if his season ends with a poor performance at O2, he'd be gutted.

i feel sorry for our guy, he's been working his ass off for competitions such as this one and comes up flat or unlucky everytime.

I can't see Andy being able to play - he was in a lot of pain yesterday - it's just not worth the risk.    Therefore my choice will be David Ferrer.   Honest, sportsmanlike,  ordinary guy (in the nicest sense of the word).    I've tried to imagine him in a white suit with gold embroidery.    I can't - so he gets my vote.

I really hope Andy withdraws and then all my support will be for Ferrer - I really hope he makes the semis if Andy can't.

I was certainly not attempting to guess your 'degree of respect' FCR.   As I said, you must see qualitites in Federer that I don't and you are perfectly entitled to your opinion, as I am to mine.

The word now is that Andy missed his 1 p.m. practice slot and is not expectecd to hit to-day at all
which would make it very unlikely that he will play Berdych to-morrow.    So it will be c'mon the
wee guy for me.
