    Federer needs to: -Serve & net play like Shanghai 14 -Display the mental strength of Paris 18 (12/12 BPs saved) minus the TB Easier said than done over 5 sets. 21 degrees apparently. Should be relatively quicker. Hope, he plays & swings freely. Truly is a freebie imho. Keep Calm & Chum Jetze!!!

    Congratulations man! You are one lucky person! I don't think I'll ever experience Feddy in WIM match let alone a final. Hope you are a good luck charm for the Old man!

    Seriously! RBA-ND match gave me nightmares. It was so painfully slow. Think the cooler weather slightly quickened the pace in the evening. Plus, I was confident about Feddy's ground game. Pouille was a solid test. He was reading Feddy's serve brilliantly & returned very well. And then Nishikori...

    Man! I wasn't this excited in a long, long, long time! I was yelling & cheering every point. The last 2 games were nervous AF but I think held my nerve as well as Woggy. 3-4 years back, I would have pulled all of my (thinning) hair but y'day I was really cool & somewhat confident that Woggy'd...

    Perfect observation. Rapha was guessing wildly & letting Kyrgistan hit aces at will. I'm sure Old Man would have tattooed that in his brain.

    Y'all make me doubt my own observations. Anyway Old man says he's healthy & he's got enough in the tank. Good enough for me. I think he's reaching the final for sure.

    Has always reached Wimbledon final whenever he has won Halle (but for 2013). Has reached Wimbledon final whenever Rafa has reached AO final. Weather in London has been cool & breezy with spells of rain. No real health issues. Augurs really well for a powerful title tilt to equal Navratilova...

    I think effect is two-fold. One, grass quality is better & lasts longer & two, cooler temperature means less spin & zipping through. Other experts can weigh in.

    England went through a heat wave in both 2017 & 2018 but this time June is very wet (causing a lot of damage to the cricket world cup), which is good news for Grass-erer imo.

    Why Thiem will win

    I dunno if he'll win but Thiem's run to the final is very very similar to Nadal's run in 2013. Dropping sets in the early rounds, crushing R16/QF wins, dramatic 5 set win over Nole in the SF. On top of this Nole got pissed off in both matches. Bad news is that Nadal got Daveed & Thiem got...

    Subtracting rest of the year points: 5505 Nadl 4815 Djkr 3360 Fedr Thiem/Zverev (poor form notwithstanding)/Tsitsipas are all around the 2000-2500 mark. As much as I want Fedr to equal Pistol Pete's 6 yr end 1s, I'd prefer one of these kids (Thiem is 26 but still) to make a big run towards...

    What does Thiem has to do to beat Nadal ?

    Take Nadal out for a night on town & get him drunk like crazy & after said wild night, roofie him so that he doesn't wake up till 4PM Paree time & win it by default.

    Great set of points as usual. Just adding 1 more point: movement. It's been a bit of a problem all year, he's not getting into position to hit passing shots. Should be better on grass.

    Probably the windiest match I've seen since Fedr-Soderling USO 2010. It was an absolute technical masterclass from The Fedr that day. Couldn't get into position to set up his shots yesterday. A slightly shorter match (maybe 45 mins) against Stan maybe could have helped......extend it to 4...

    Have you noticed how Becker became a superfan (again) of Fedr once Nole fired him?

    Having that degree of mental strength comes with its own demons. Pete was burnt out, morose, irritable & walking like a zombie for 2 years, just like Djokovic did for 18 months. A lesser degree of intensity has helped Roger remain generally healthy, happy & enjoy his tennis even in his late 30s...

    This mostly hindsight speaking but I think the mental scarring is somewhat overstated. Remove 2008 & 13 & the Fedal rivalry has rarely been one-sided. Many people say The Fedr missing 2 MPs in Roma was the turning point of the rivalry. But Federer won 5 out of next 8 matches until the end of...

    Brilliant post mate. Hope it's a great match on Friday & not an anti-climax like WIM 15.
