I've been on the money all along even calling Federer to lose at RG. Well, this is an easy one to pick and if I say it's gonna happen, it's definitely gonna happen. Federer will win Wimbledon 2008.

Agreed......

This looks to be a repeat of 2005 where Roger didn't win a slam until Wimbledon. 2 out of 4 is still good.

Nope. It will be Nadal or Djokovic this year.

I'm affraid Nadal is on fire so much that he can actually win Wimbledon. But, as a true Fed fan, I have to believe in my hero that he can do it again.

not just so, I believe he will win in convincing fashion. He's got to be hungry for a big title this year...a man accustomed to his level of success will not take this lying down. Now that clay is out of the way, where Nadal has been an absolute beast (props for that), Federer will be keen to show his abilities.

I would like to see Federer win more than any other player, though I would feel pretty bad for Nadal if he became runner up to Federer again in a really close 5 set match.

One thing for sure, with Djokovic, Nadal and Federer this is going to be a very interesting Wimbledon, as nothing will be certain. All three are very capable on grass.

I'm going against the grain (and common sense, to be quite honest) and call Roddick for one of the 2 remaining slams, assuming his standard of play keeps up.

I also believe in him.

And I do believe that with no roof at Wimbledon last year the wind did play a factor. With the roof back on this year, Roger will be back in his element.

My prediction: Six in a row for the Grasscourt master. :twisted:

The Nadal of 2008 is even better than the Nadal of 2007 as we have all seen. On the other hand, Federer still plays the same (if not worse)....

I would take Djokovic over Nadal (I think that rivalry is going to be ownage outside of clay), and Fed over either of them. Hopefully Higueras butts out and lets Fed take care of Wimbledon by himself.

u still haven't realized how much the surface makes differences to Nadal.
or maybe you are blinded by his performance in the FO final.

Not surprising. Half the tennis world right now it seems is blinded by the French Open Final.

You sure there will be something like a roof yet? Because the roof that can close wont be before 2009.

Maybe he is "blinded" by last year's Wimbledon final. Federer was very lucky to win that day.

I was not talking about the closing roof, I was talking about he part of the roof they took off for last year. The circular part which covers the seats. it keeps the wind out.. it will be back on this year.

"...at least Centre Court will have a familiar look. The permanent roof is back after last year’s open-roofed tournament, with room for an extra 1200 fans and improved scoreboard and catering facilities."

Yes, it's a lock 2005 = 2008. Only this year he took one Estoril title prior the grass and 2005 he already had 6 titles by this time.

But in 2005 Federer had already won 7 titles including 3 MS heading into Wimbledon. This year he's won 1 title and 0 MS.

Yeah,Federer was one of the best players ever in 2005 even though he won "only" 2 slams,he lost to Safin at AO who was playing breathtaking tennis like he did when he crushed Sampras at USO.Fed almost equaled Mac's win percentage(he would have if not for Nalbandian in TMC)that year.

It's a fairly obvious call IMO. I am interested to see which side of the draw the Djoker goes in, maybe that's the only thing to scupper your "prediction". For the record I'll be rooting for Federer.

Hmm, so Djokovic makes it to the semis of Wimby last year and now all of a sudden he's a threat to Roger. Man, it's like clockwork every year. Everyone get's Nadal fever after the French "ehem Nadal Open". And every year Federer has a cure for this particular ailment.

The main issue is "Roger Brains"

Its not about surfaces, its about Roger has some mental issue.

Djokovic, Nadal or some surprises.

But not for Roger.

The last 2 years, Federer was competitive with Nadal but this year is different. Nadal has raised his game to another level. I think he can beat Federer if they meet up in the Finals at Wimbledon again. I consider Djokovic as Nadal's toughest matchup now.

Yeah and Federer has also never been beaten that bad before in a final and I think he's a bit embarrassed. He is coming to Wimby to prove a point (that he is the undisputed #1) and I think he's going to do that with a vengence. I guess we'll have to wait and see but I feel pretty confident in saying that he is going to win this Wimby too.
