Shanghai Masters – Semi Final

13:00 – Federer v Djokovic

Rankings are 3 and 2. Head to heads are 10-6 to Federer.

Both players are playing excellent tennis and haven’t really looked in any trouble so far this week.

They have held serve 96% and 95% over the last month. Return of serve stats are similar although Federer converts more break point chances.

Very very difficult to pick a winner here but I feel the head to head is a factor. Also the fact that Fed can’t be happy being world number 3 so  perhaps will be slightly more motivated.

Back Federer on serve. Djokovic can sometimes be a slow starter but will surely be focussed against ederer. I would still wait for a game or 2 before backing Djokovic on serve.

Possible 3 setter but I’m going for a Federer win.

Update: Federer won 7-5, 6-4.
