    Unlikely Nadal can go this far, but just for fun imagine he gets there, what will be going through Feb's mind? Who is this guy? Some ghost hauting me?

    You almost have favor Nadal at that moment.

    Because in the parallel universe Fed would make Nadal his Hewitt. On all surfaces!

    Uh, no. The low bounce neutralizes one of the main weapons Nadal has against Fed - high balls to his backhand. Low bounce also means less succesful retirevals for Nadal, so his defense is diminished. And Federer has better footing in the surface than Nadal.

    If I was Nadal, I wouldn't want to meet Fed on grass until I had tuned my game a lot better for it, that way I wouldn't give him a chance to beat me and reduce my mental cowing advantage.

    this is HIGHLY unlikely, and even if it does happen I would pick Fed in straights.

    I would want it to happen, just to see the triple bagel Federer pulls off.

    WHY NOT?????? nadal improves alot on other surface, he proves it by beating fed in hard court...... in grass, he can do it better than before too, he did it in queen.... this year or latest next year, you will see nadal beat fed in the final of wimbledon

    Federer would be licking his chops at the chance of demolishing Nadal on his favorite surface. Unfortunately, they'll never meet at the Wimbledon finals.

    Being an imaginary world, if Nadal was good enough to reach final.....why cant he beat federer?

    Not to beat dead horse but federer had keys to beat Nadal in FO final. He didnt ...even after leading a set. In wimbledon a similar stry might happen tooo.


    IN a more realistic world, Feder would be automatic until Semis. i am not sure after that.

    it would be nice if fed played nadal in the finals. it'd be over in like 90 minutes, but it'd really boost fed's confidence.
