Final surely unexpected to the Masters Series of Cincinnati, where the number 12 and the number 31 of the world are faced.
Roddick after a incrediblefirst round against Braacciali, has played a greatest tournament, showing great emergency, especially with the backhand, that is without doubt his worse blow and varying a lot his game with a slice much effective.
Ferrero is returned a true player, much solid from bottom, with two effective blows and also from the service he succeeds to obtain many points.
In this tournament he has been simply fantastic, even if yesterday Robredo had muscular problems and therefore those match not ago text. Theoretically the match could be near and without Roddick doubt the American cannot be worth around to 35%, even if to my warning the Andy leaves for sure favorite in this match and the great service of the Yankee without doubt could make the difference.
For me Roddick will win this match and this tournament, even if the odds are much far from the truth and no bet is obvious.

With the US Open Series Lever 2000 Challenge title at stake, American Andy Roddick came out no holds barred Saturday evening at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters.
Before a packed house, the 23-year-old American effortlessly denied Challenge leader Fernando Gonzalez, taking only 67 minutes to defeat the feisty Chilean. He jumped out to an early lead by breaking Gonzalez to begin the match and never looked back. He rifled 12 aces - eight alone in the second set - and won 91 percent of his first serve points to cement the 6-3, 6-3 victory.
"I felt the key to the match was whoever got on the aggressive early in the points, because we can both fire the ball a little bit, but I wanted to make him resort to defense as opposed to offense. I felt like I did that pretty well tonight," said Roddick.
With his 23rd event victory, Roddick earned his third trip in four years to the Cincinnat title match. He won the title in 2003 and finished as the runner-up to Roger Federer last year. His 2005 run in Cincinnati was the last time Roddick reached an ATP Masters Series final, and his last title at a Masters event came at the 2004 NASDAQ-100 Open in Miami.
Gonzalez, who would've clinched the US Open Series Lever 2000 Challenge title with the victory, had won 17 of his last 22 matches coming into Saturday's semifinals. He also reached the final four last week at the Rogers Masters in Toronto, falling to eventual champion Federer.
Roddick currently stands seven points behind Gonzalez in the US Open Series standings following the semifinal win, and will have the opportunity to claim the Challenge title with a victory in Sunday's final against Spaniard Juan Carlos Ferrero.
Roddick and Ferrero, both whom have only been broken twice coming into the final, are the last two players to have ranked World No. 1 before Roger Federer ascended to the top of the INDESIT ATP Rankings in February 2004. Ferrero held the No. 1 ranking for eight weeks in 2003 before Roddick took over to finish the year at the top.
Ferrero who has lost to Roddick twice, in the U.S. Open final in 2003 and in Cincinnati last year, said, "The two times I played against him and I lost I think I had chances to have a win."
The Spaniard has recorded victories over three Top 10 players this week: James Blake in the second round, Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals and Tommy Robredo in the semifinals.
Both Roddick and Ferrero will be going for their first ATP title of the season.
In H2H 2-0 favour Roddick.

in this match, the past records and name isnt important. the loss of robredo and nadal proved this point. i cant see anyone is favourite in this match.but the odds 1.3 for roddick is obvioust stupid. it is a trap, but it also offer vaule @ fererro @ 3. in this game the luck is the judge which will set the result.perhaps roddick has more pressure built on him due to jfc's remarkable victory who snaped nadal and robredo in 2 straight sets. actually jfc looks more decent than roddick in my eyes, but roddick probably will take home advantage. it shouldnt be a 2 sets easy defeat for either of them. bet on fererro @3 ~5units will offer me 50% chance
and also roddick win setbetting@2-1 @4.0 is another 25-30%chance for me
i invested same amount of stake on both tips.i guess this should be a relatively safe bet.
After the Ferrero`s big win yesterday, I went out to get a drink and came back, I watched Roddick and I was going to be on him today, as I thought, that he played really well. But today when I saw him again, he was not that superb, but still he has very good form. Ferrero did not make good impresion on me against Robredo and I am sure, that Robredo was the one, who lost the match. Ferrero is losing his form and Roddick should win. I decided to not make any serious bet, maybe I will put just for fun some small money on Roddicks win. 8)
just one interesting info ... from 1/8 finals only one game was played in three sets (Murray - Ginepri 7-6, 2-6, 6-4) ... so that is one from 14 matches ...
