    Wimbledon 2019 SF: Roger Federer [2] vs Rafael Nadal [3]

    I really can't get over the sensibility of this post, lol! What you just said is what I've been trying to preach to certain folks here....to no avail. No such thing as patience here.

    Wimbledon 2019 SF: Roger Federer [2] vs Rafael Nadal [3]

    Honestly, I've elected to just go along for the ride at this point in regards to FAA. No expectations, so I don't really have a prediction. Gun to my head, though? General and loose prediction? I'd say a Hewtt/Roddick/Safin/Ferrero type career. Consistently at the top, or at least among the top...

    Wimbledon 2019 SF: Roger Federer [2] vs Rafael Nadal [3]

    With that win, Federer proclaimed "Yeah, you got me at Roland Garros but you're on my turf now!". 12th Wimbledon final for the GOAT! Outstanding!

    Wimby’19 QF: (3) R Nadal vs Sam “I Am The Destroyer” Querrey

    Okay, that makes sense. I thought they were talking about the last decade up until now.

    Wimby’19 QF: (3) R Nadal vs Sam “I Am The Destroyer” Querrey

    Okay, this is really bothering me. I just saw a stat on my feed that I've seen once before last week as well, that Nadal has won at least one major every year for the last decade. Not true! He didn't win one in 2015! What am I missing here??

    Wimbledon R4: Roger Federer [2] vs Matteo Berrettini [17]

    That's the thing. I bet he was genuinely confident, but he hadn't been on Centre Court facing Federer before. Real wake up call for him.

    In all seriousness, I actually feel for Matteo. A lot. He IS much better than this. He's clearly not prepared for the moment and nervous as hell. He's a professional so you can't feel too sorry for him, but you know what I'm saying.

    I guess I can only speak for myself but at least the result of that match was expected.

    Either Fowler or Gilbert had a good point: Berrettini hasn't even seen anything like this yet. Because the top players flamed out in the tune ups he didn't face any of them. Suddenly he's on Centre Court against Roger Federer. The guy is simply not prepared. He's had a great grass season but now...

    Ha! Would have been the most efficient thing the Italian has done today.

    My goodness....Matteo dumps the drop shot in the net and it's another break for Federer.
