Federer and Nadal will meet in the men's French Open final on Sunday morning--8 AM on NBC.  Who will win?  Probably Nadal.

Federer's been completely off his game, yet has somehow still managed to win every single set but one so far this tournament.  Nadal hasn't been awesome, but he's been solid. 

I'm picking Federer.  It's his time, and he clicked when he had to against Davydenko.  Federer has a plan for Nadal, and he's been working on it for months.  Federer in four sets.

I'm calling it the Freedom Open until Frenchie gets on board for the big win in Iraq!

I'm going with Nadal - could have been a straight sets loss for Federer if Davydenko hadn't blow it several times.

Also - ESPN has it as 9AM EST (if we were both talking about EST; I wouldn't want to have to wake up any earlier than necessary).

LOLZ!!1!

How many times do people say "could've" for great champions?  Fact is, he won IN STRAIGHT SETS.  He played poorly, but he pulled it out when he needed to.  Example: blasts a second serve ace during tie-breaker in third set.

Federer has that knack of winning the important points, even on his off days.  It's what sets the legends apart from the merely great.

ANDY RODDICK, NADAL CALLED AND HE WANTS HIS ARMS BACK

Anyone see that Men's Fitness cover?  I get the magazine, and saw the cover and did a wtf doubletake before starting to laugh hysterically.  I turned on ESPN to see that the guys on PTI were making fun of this too.
