    Here we go, the final everyone was waiting for! #1 vs #2, it doesn't get any better than this.

    Will Djokovic shut up the haters about his "dodgy" grass court skills, or will Murray win for Great Britain and end "one slam wonder" speculation?

    Head to Head: 11-7 Djokovic
    On Grass: 1-0 Murray

    I believe in Novak Djokovic, our savior of boredom and democracy.

    Murray to get his a** kicked from the Joker in 3 sets. :twisted:

    I think Andy winning is better for tennis.

    This is exactly the final I wanted from day one. Either guy winning would be epic.

    I don't want a 3 set victory.
    But i also don't want a 5 set grindfest like they've played before.

    We know both of them like to grind, lets hope Djoker at least tries to attack.

    Don't like either. Don't care that much, but expect Djokovic to win.

    No it's not it will thrive idiotic commentators to puke up some garbage in front of the TV.

    Seriously if you live in the UK and watch tennis a lot it's torture every time Murray plays.

    Unfortunately, Murrovic GS finals will be our reality for the next 2 years.

    Really, beating not a single Top 20 player to reach final, still struggling to win and then play against a tired Djoker in DC like support. How is tennis winning here? You are not gifted grandslams, you have to earn it. Which even if Murray does, won't be well earned.

    Murray in 5. Djokovic has looked the better player during the tournement but i just feel Andy will raise his game for the final and clinch it.

    It's not funny, the longest recorded pong match lasted 14 hours. It's going to be even worse than the AO 2012 match....:(

    At least it's grass, and might shorten points. I hope there are loads of bad bounces.

    Murray to be gifted another slam....first one by wind, second due to the damage Delpo did to Novak.

    Murray should send his Gold Medal and Wimbledon title to Delpo!

    I'm a huge Djokovic fan, but I think Murray has this in 5. I think the crowd will unnerve Novak, and he's been looking shaky at times throughout the tournament. I just hope it's close and entertaining. Happy enough with either getting the win.

    FFS, it's #1 vs #2. The two best players in the word and the favorites coming into the tournament

    What's not to like? The hate these two get is ridiculous

    OP, why is it so difficult to line up poll options like 3-4-5-5-4-3, so that people could see the distribution of opinions better? (

    He ended up with a cake draw for sure but no one's fault if Fednad (+ Tsonga) didn't hold their part of the bargain. So, USO final, AO final and now W final. This is a rivalry that's trending! And they're 1-1... If Djoko wins, he will have overcome the toughest possible draw on top of Murray's DC-like home advantage. It would be rather extraordinary. I've expected Murray to win from the start but it's exciting to see if Novak can rise to the challenge. One heck of a feat it would be.

    Is anyone else going? What time are you meant to get there?

    Also, I'll be the lone voice you hear in the crowd rooting for Novak. Eff the world.

    Brussels unfortunately
    I'm feeling decidedly underwhelmed. Djoko will win this, probably in 3. I'm catching a flight to DC at 17CET, they'll probably be at it when I land 7 hours later.

    It's just a boring matchup. Either one vs. a more aggressive player is much more interesting. People like a contrast of styles.

    They are both grinders, and the match will be constant running and retrieving. This is Wimbledon ffs, not clay. That style of play is ugly.
