    Let's say hypothetically they both reach the finals. Who would you bet on.

    Case for Fed:

    6 Wimby's . One of the greatest grass court players ever. Won it last year. No visible signs of a big decline yet.

    Case for Nadal.

    Currently the 2nd best grass court player after Fed. Won it 2008. Seems to have the mental edge over Fed in slam finals. Gets better on grass every year.

    I think I would keep my money in my pocket!

    What's the point of betting something that not a certain to happen.

    You don't even know if Rafa will even play SW19.:roll:

    Despite Fed's record, Nadal is still a bad match-up for him, so its a tough one to call...I would still bet on Fed though...

    I can't answer this question,if I have no idea what form they're in and who they have defeated-and how-in their way to the final.

    Well, if Nadal's made the final than we can't assume he's in bad form.

    In that case, you'd have to consider an in-form Nadal vs. an in-form Federer.

    It'd be a toss-up 50-50... maybe Nadal would be the slight favorite as he would be hungrier than Fed to win, but on the same note Federer would be hungry for his 7th Wimby title.

    Yes..you got a point..however I would like to see his draw,the scores and how he won->same with Fed what form he's in and how easy he won hsi matches,before I would make my prediction..esp my bet.,The field just isn't as big when it comes to grass.
