    Wimbledon 2019 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Roger Federer [2]

    Should Fed do intensive serve & volley against Nadal?

    This would work if Nadal was tired. See set 5 of AO17. Nadal can't hit a passing shot when his legs are weary. Federer should employ this tactic more and more as the match wears on. But in the first two sets, he'll need to find a way to outmanoeuvre Rafa. This will involve resisting pressure on...

    I think Federer's playing well enough to win Wimbledon, as long as he keeps the UFE down in the final against Novak

    2019 RG QF: Federer vs Wawrinka

    Fed can still win this. Waw tightens up everytime he gets in the lead.
