I think he will. He'll even roll over a few times in the dirt and thank God for the victory.

Yeah, he definitely will. He hasn't done it in a while (losing in RG and the AO).

I don't think it's possible for Federer to beat Nadal on grass that convincigly,he may beat him in 4 sets if his serve is on but not in straights.

Who cares?

Nadal did not roll in the dirt out of respect for Roger because the victory was a formality after he was 2 or 3-0 in the 3rd set and because he knew Roger was totally outclassed and did not play his best.

Face it, Nadal has class.

Oops.. I used the "C" word! :twisted:

Nah. It's just for fun. I'm a big Fed fan actually. But I've been very disappointed in him as of late. Not because he's not winning every tournament, but bc of the body language he shows when he's behind in a match. Maybe that's just how he looks and inside he's still fighting hard, but it just doesn't seem that way to me. He seems like he cracks and can't pick up the pieces.

By anybody else's standard he is having a very good season, though, so hope he comes back to take Wimby. But if Nadal wins, I won't be crying either, would be cool for Nadal to win too. As long Djoker is not in the final I'll be happy.

I think Federer will fall to the ground if the match ends up going the distance. I think this will be Federer's toughest year to win Wimbledon because of the way Nadal and Djokovic have been playing. Also Federer is certainly more vulnerable then ever in this years Wimbledon.

If he wins in 3, it'd be pretty much a demolition, likely of Nadal. I think it'd be sporting to show the same restraint Nadal showed.

I disagree there (but it depends on the type of grass). Federer is simply put one of the best grass-courters ever. On a top day, he could demolish anyone extremely convincingly on grass (except Sampras; if they both play top of game, it'll go to 5 sets every time).

Maybe on the 90s grass but on today's grass although I'd still say Fed will win this year if he meets Nadal in the final it definitely won't be easy.

Yes, unfortunately, today's grass is more like today's grass than 90s grass.

I still think at his best, Federer destroys everyone and anyone on it; especially if he plays more aggressive.

Yeah probably,I really hope Fed puts everything he has in this Wimbledon and wins it so he can show everybody he's still the king.

Err, LOL, I meant to say "today's grass is more like today's clay than 90s grass"; a little bit of hyperbole, but you get the point.

You know, I'm really stoked for Wimbledon. Grass produces some awful tennis at times, but I like that there's no clear-cut favorite this time and I can really see Tsonga doing some damage and potentially beating anyone.

That is what he was supposedly doing at the FO:

"I know I can beat him. I'm the one playing aggressive. I'm the one trying hard. I'm the one taking the risks in those matches, so I think I have positive chances of winning here," said Federer

Apart from the fact Tsonga isn't playing due to injury, it's an interesting prediction...
