USTA 2007 Predictions

For the quarter finals, Federer and Djokovic are sure wins. I think Tommy Haas is going to upset, and if Ferrer can maintain his momentum after shocking Nadal, he could win his match as well. It is difficult to decide if Nadal was imploding and his knees were breaking, or if Ferrer was playing out of his mind.

I'm not sure that matters all that much, because it is difficult to imagine the semi-finals without Federer and Djokovic winning again. Regardless of who they play, it seems these two are destined to clash in the finals.

So who walks away from NYC the victor? While there has been much (rightful) talk of Djokovic the up and coming, I'm not sure he's arrived yet. Secondly, I don't think Federer is anywhere near being on his way down. His mental toughness won't stop until after he's won his 15 Slams; only then is there any hope of him relaxing and letting up a bit.

Who do you plan to see serving under the lights? Who walks away victorious?

I knew I married the best...way to predict perfectly.

Congrats Sam, but I think Brian got a pretty good deal too.
Hey Brian, uh...what's USTA?

You keep up with tennis?

Jesus.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely.
