    I saw joker against Mayer. He cannot handle slices properly which specially bite and skid on the grass courts.
    Fed will beat joker in straight sets or in 4 sets.

    If Fed plays the tactic.... he has a bad habit of trying the hit thru Novak...and not playing an off pace strategy.

    I think more of their meetings could have been a W for Fed had he not been so stubborn with his game plan.

    If he does it, his strokes must be deep, perfectly placed all the time because Djokovic takes control every time he gets a short ball from Fed.

    Some phrases for Federer to learn so he knows what ND is going on about.

    Where is the closest pharmacy? Где је најближа апотека? - Gdye јye naјbliʐa apotyeka?
    I feel sick Није ми добро - Niјye mi dobro
    It hurts here Боли ме овде - Boli mye ovdye
    Call a doctor! Зовите доктора! - Zovitye doktora!
    Food poisoning Тровање храном - Trovaњye khranom

    Shalom sye!!!!!!!! (just djoking!!!!!!!)

    I predict Nole in 4 or 5 vs Fed. Reason being:

    -Fed's recent back injury
    -Recent head to head record between the 2
    -Fed's age and decline
    -Nole's dominance in the French semis vs Fed

    And for the record, i'm a Fed fan.

    We had such a thread before the FO Semi too. I suggest the OP hold his horses.

    Agreed. Fed shouldslice and dice it. Go for the low slice to the two hander. Than when Djoko has to move it up a bit loopier, (run around and) crack a forehand.

    I don't know if it's just me but it seems that Nole (and Rafa too) has more trouble running down dtl balls, whereas he just feeds off of angles.

    Federer needs to serve and volley A LOT MORE than has been doing in order to beat Djokovic. Haas beat Djokovic at Wimbledon in 2009 by exclusively serving and volleying.

    Djokovic will beat Fed in straights. He had trouble with Mayers slices initially because Mayers backhanded slices looked very much like his topspin backhand until the last nanosecond. Plus Mayer hit his slice harder than most I have seen and it really shot through the court. Still wasn't enough to win a set.

    You should have asked Rafa to bump your thread during a changeover :)

    Thank you!
    And take one more prediction here. Joker would never win another Wimby in his life.

    not sure if you'd seen this, but federer must have come across your thread while combing the boards under the username godnovak.
