Nadal would tie Borg's French Open record, and Federer would tie Sampras's Wimbledon record in a period of a month. That would be insane as far as great sports narratives go.

Not really, Fed is still up there as one of the top contenders. Granted he's behind Rafa and just slighty above Novak. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Fed found a way to win Wimbledon; then again, I also wouldn't be surprised if he crashed out again.

I don't think it would be crazy if he didn't win, as he crashed out last year in the QFs, but it also wouldn't be crazy if he won it either. I think him and nadal are both favorites, I'd still place nadal slightly above fed.

I think currently on surface such as grass, only Rafa can fight with him and maybe hot Berdych.

You never know with Federer. Maybe the coin toss determines how he plays that day?

I would put Fed about 5th. Others like Nadal, Djokovic I would put higher. Guys like Tsonga could make a big run with a good draw.

Yeah, honestly he could retire after that. Coming back and winning a major for the 9th straight year in Sampras-like fashion while at the same time tying Sampras would just be icing for his career.

Right because it will be "clay", not like he can actually win fast grass titles or anything LOL

I find it strange that you are so pessimistic about Federer's chances at Wim. I would wager that Federer is going to win this year. He has been working harder than ever and using smarter tactics than ever.

Holmes: He's won Queens before (fast grass), but his Wimbledon titles have not been won on fast grass courts. He hasn't played Federer on a fast grass court.

I'd love for Roger to make it 7 titles, but he'll always have the pressure on him at Wimbledon due to his past there. Even if he isn't seeded one or two for it, the pressure will be there. We all know how his mental game is against certain players, so if he gets to the final and the grass is worn down as expected, he'll have problems with whomever he meets.

Allez Roger!

Alejandro Falla? Was terribly close last year.

Two points:
1. "Close" is only good in horseshoes & hand grenades.

2. A slightly upgraded game, thanks in part to Annacone influence, makes the Colombian kryptonite less lethal. Since PA: two semis & one major final plus a WTF championship.

Care to guess again?

I'd take Kendrick over Rafa b4 Falla over Fed, if Kendrick makes Wimby draw.

Kendrick! I forgot all about that guy,great game to watch,goes for 2nd serve aces at times a la Pete if I remember well,he had Murray in quite a bit of trouble as well in 2009.

So you reckon Roger's taking #7,tying Sampras? If anywhere Paul's influence should work it should be at Wimbledon,slower grass true but still allows for attacking tennis to triumph.

There are some real question marks, but I have to go with Nadal as the favorite. I tend to think that the first week could be the toughest for him, when the grass is a bit faster and he hasn't fine tuned his grass court game as much. He seems to find his groove there in the second week especially. As for Federer, he seems much more inconsistent now, in that he's up and down. Yet, I would not put it past him to win another W title. I think he could do it, but I tend to think he'll have to avoid Nadal in the final to get it done. If he is playing say Djokovic, Murray, or Roddick I like his chances in those possible matches. We'll see how the big servers fare, especially dangerous players like Berdych and Soderling. I don't think Raonic will be a serious threat there just yet. I think he needs a couple of more years under his belt, but we'll see.

You think it would be easier for Fed to take out Nadal in SF than in the F? Could be,if Fed happens to beat Nadal in SF he's gonna feel so confident that it's gonna be very tough to beat him in the final no matter who's on the other side of the net.

Pressure is a major factor in finals with Nadal on the other side of the net. He will play more freely in a SF.

There are a lot of unknowns at this point about Djokovic's grass game at this point. You're probably right though...With a win over Nadal his confidence will be sky-high.

Rafa was in deep doo-doo (clawing at his backside) early on vs. Kendrick in '07(?). This was, of course when Nads was young and his grass-court skills were undeveloped. He possibly was suffering from a leg injury and also had eaten bad pizza the night before. The hotel bed was a bit lumpy so he had shoulder tightness. All these things conspired to push his Mallorcan Highness to the brink but he miraculously escaped with absolutely no coaching from Tio Tony because he fights for every point like you are taking tapas $$$ from his piggybank. He is, of course, the greatest of all 10-time major winners. Those above him on the list only won their majors because he wasn't around or hadn't found his game on their favorite surfaces, or the balls were too fast, or the season is too long..........

Yes, IMO, 7's & 17's sound good in '11. A great way to exit his 20's, eh?

Besides I was jking in that post. I think Fed has good chance at wimbledon.

Not the "watch out Nadal is going to win everything for the next 10 years" mentality again. Haven't you learned like nadal slam king yet?

It might also turn out this way: "Nadal will lose in the first week of a Slam because of an injury and then Nadal fans will cry that he lost again because of injury and Federer or whoever wins the tournament got lucky because he didn't have to beat Nadal. Is that right?

I can easily see their mentality translating to different eras.

"Borg was lucky that Rafa wasn't in the final of those RG and Wimby finals."

"Petros was lucky that Rafa wasn't peaking in the 90's, or else he wouldn't have won a single Wimby."

"Laver was lucky that Rafa......."

I don't see Roger beating Nadal to win Wimby. Roger has some serious head issues now against Nadal apart from the tactical matchup issues. When was the last time Roger beat Nadal in a best-of-5 anyway?

If Nadal is eliminated from the tournament by someone else, then there may be a possibility.

Federer displayed the level of a potential Wimbledon winner at Roland Garros. And he already won the tournament a lot of times.

His results were bad in the first half of the season but in slams he showed up. Nadal is following the same path, showing up mostly in slams. And Nadal is playing great at Wimbledon too.

Not that crazy considering he is the second favorite.

I just don't understand this. Look at the form of Fed, Nadal, DJokovic and Murray. Nadal was shaky in the F.O final, and couldn't hold to save his life. Last time I saw his serve ok was in WTF 2010 - his serve has been trash all year. Everyone and their brother is breaking him. He can survive on clay, but on grass it's a different story (as we saw in Queens). Had the F.O final been on grass, Fed would have probably won in straights.

W.r.t history I put Fed, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray in that order as the Wimb contenders.

W.r.t form, however, Nadal is probably the 3rd or 4th favorite. So if Fed wins, it will be expected. If Nadal wins, that would be crazy, coz it's pretty plain that with the F.O level, he will have a hard time getting to the Wimb SF even...

Watson: Although 99% of the time I agree with your posts TennisFan3, I might argue with you a touch on this one. Ralph's serve is more effective on grass due to the lefty spin out wide. If his consistency returns on grass, it will be effective, regardless of down and out speed. Well, IMO at least ;)

I agree. On grass Ralph's serve takes a life of it's own. But Mr. Nadal has not been serving well all through this year. The last time he served consistently was in WTF 2010. His serve right from AO has been sub-par (and this has little to do with Noel).

A very under-appreciated part of Ralph's game last summer, was how difficult it was to break him. This year it's totally different. Eurosport commentators were saying that Nadal's gifted service breaks give hope to his opponent give the locker room a lot of hope. You only need to wait and stay in the match. There's every chance Ralph will choke while serving for the set or match.

As goes your serve, so goes you game is not a cliche. It's actually true.

All that said. I'm super impressed by the way Fed is playing. Honestly, I didn't expect him to play like this nearing 30. If he brings his F.O level to Wimbledon, the only guy who could stop him is a Nadal playing at the peak of his powers.

You've gotta admire what Roger is doing. He's stayed put with 3 generations of players including the current big 4 (all of who are 5 yrs younger to him). And even now it was Fed, who beat the seemingly unbeatable Djokovic. I don't know about other, but IMO breaking the streak was a great achievement by Fed. I can't imagine anyone doing so on that day. So credit, where it's due..
