Who?

1) Who will the crowd support ?

2) Will Federer's backhand withstand a player who can actually rally (like Murray) ?
1 - It will probably be 50-50 at the start but the crowd will get behind the player who's behind in the score to try and prolong the match.
2 - Murray will pepper Fed's BH and it won't survive this time.

Fed will eat up Murray's 2nd serve. However given what I've seen so far and given what the journos said about Fed huffing and puffing long after his Cilic match. I can't see Fed winning unless he wins in straights.

more like he is relaxed and convinced that he will win. Just like us. At the end of second set, he looked serious. In rest of the match his attitude is like this is first round of Halle.
he can't come out of the gates as slowly as he has these last 2. If he does that against Murray he will lose.

You would get that in Serbia too. People asking for your pictures.

I was in New Belgrade this morning and I didnt happen to run into Srdjan or Dijana. I will let you know if I ever happen to see them. :D
I will go to Belgrade one day for sure. And I'll bring a sign "form an orderly queue for pictures"

You are right but it just frustrates me how arrogant some fed fans are, they just dismiss Djoko and nadals achievements at times. Then when he wins its like the best thing ever.
You just sound like a sore ***** mate. I'm a Rafa fan but I understand Roger's greatness and who wouldn't want to see a 35 year old legend win another slam? A grumpy uppity stuck up little child probably.

yeah, we all know djoko matches up better vs rafa. Still he beat rafa "only" 3 times in majors ( I mean a rafa who could actually play decent tennis , not including 2015 RG ) and federer beat him 2 times in majors .

I still count RG 2015, Nadal beat Djokovic at FO a fair few times when Djokovic's wasn't at his best (06-08) at the FO, so I count 2015.



If you count beating Nadal at Wimbledon in 2006 as a legit victory, then RG 2015 is also a legit victory.

Fed was found out big time against nadal and Djokovic. You know that deep done!
