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

    I think Federer has a real chance. 1) Novak not at his peak 2) recent close encounters. Federer in average form almost beat Novak at Paris 2018 3) Federer hitting his forehand well Federer doesn’t beat Novak through consistency but by serving well and dictating play with his forehand. Without...

    Djokovic is "surprised" at Wimbledon seeding

    Djokovic knows how it works, but It’s easy to see why it could be surprising: -Nadal has a moderate gap over Fed in the rankings -Nadal went further at Wimbledon last year. Federer is ahead because of 2 other tournaments: Halle 2019, and winning Wimbledon 2017 which was a long time ago obviously.

    Rafa assesses Federer chances of success at Wimbledon

    Good value on Federer and Tsitsipas. Bad value on Nadal, Zverev, Raonic, Kyrgios. The rest seem about right.

    First time since AO 2013 that the top 4 men's seeds made the semis.

    We have (1) Djokovic v (4) Thiem, (3)Federer v (2) Nadal In 2013 AO we had (1)Djokovic v (4)Ferrer, (3)Murray v (2)Federer, Djokovic winning at the end. Last time it happened at Roland Garros was 2011. (1)Nadal v (4) Murray, (3)Federer v (2)Djokovic It actually happened twice in 2011, at the...

    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...

    2019 RG QF: Federer vs Wawrinka

    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

    Feel like there's only 2 times Federer's been hit off the court: 1) Cilic USO 2014 2) Wawrinka FO 2015 Every other match since becoming No 1. has been 'winnable', barring injury

    2019 RG QF: Federer vs Wawrinka

    Stan is definitely tired. Poor movement to backhand side and loads of errors when forced to stretch/run. But he can still put up a fight just with his shotmaking.

    Which FO Final would you rather watch?

    Djokovic vs Nadal would have better tennis, but Tsitsipas vs Thiem is better for the game

    Fed May get a walkover in R4

    I'd strongly prefer the w/o than match rhythm. He needs to save his body for the remainder of FO and Wimbledon. Furthermore Federer has also been starting matches very well this year. He's only lost the first set 3 times (Albot, Coric, Thiem) and ended up winning 2 of those matches anyway. It's...

    What do you truly believe about Safin/Federer at AO 2005?

    you don't see tennis of this level nowadays unfortunately :(

    How far will the Feder go??

    Should make the QFs. If Tsitsipas is tired he should make the SFs. Anything more would be magical but unrealistic. I do think he has at least a 25% chance in any given match with Rafa or Novak.
