I think his movement will be his downfall. Either Djoko or Rafa will pummel him, fairly easily. They just have to get his legs tired, and it's over.
They need to get that serve back first. Never seen Isner play better and with so much confidence.

i think this match will be decided not by their baseline game but by their net game , and we all know who has the better net game ;)
Net game can be nullified by Djokovic's exceptional passing ability, angles and baseline play. Ask Federer about that.

None of these guys are Rafter or Sampras, charging the net, or even Federer who is more comfortable in the forecourt than either of them. They will come in on opportunistc chances, by first opening up the court by triggering their main weapon from the back of the court. If their baseline game is not working, their net game will not even matter.

"I could have killed them all. I could have killed you too. Back in town you are the law, but out here it's me...Don't push it...Don't push it or I will give you a war you won't believe."
i like this ..Back there I could fly a gunship, I could drive a tank, I was in charge of million dollar equipment, back here I can't even hold a job *parking cars*!

I’m surprised so many people are taking Nadal. Nadal hasn’t played anyone other than Del Potro who doesn’t have a backhand. Djokovic dismantled two of the best baseliners in the world in Edmund and Nishikori. Novak will eat Rafas serve for breakfast.
Well, Edmund and Nishikori do not exactly excel on grass.
This year must be their career best results for both of them.

Rafa ain't nobody's breakfast. :D

Ultimate Fed fan here, but who wouldn’t be hyped for this match?

Djokovic in 4 looking popular; i’ve plumped for Nadal in 5! I’ve been persuaded really, my instinct is for Djokovic in this matchup on grass. But there is something about Nadal this year, with Fed out things have opened up for him.

Good luck to both players, hope we get a cracking match.

Of course, Nole's peak dwarfs Federer's and Nadal's.
No man held 4 slam titles simultaneously since 1969, as I understand.
 
Draw denadalization application now enabled, will be activated within a few hours, and if there will be no unexpected glitches the denadalization should be complete by tonight.

I gotta watch the Rambo movies again, tried a few years ago and couldn't get into em
Definitely watch the first one, it's a great take on a soldier suffering from PTSD strutggling to integrate himself into the society. One of those Stallone roles/movies that feel like he invested a lot of himself into the role.

The rest in the series are just run of the mill action movies where Stallone kills 1000 people. Still fun but sort of missing the point of the first movie for me.

No Stallone movie is "run of the mill".....you should be ashamed.

I think this is like Jaime Lannister (Novak) vs Arthur Dayne (Nadal). Novak is despised by the British press and the Wimbledon crowd, who don't realise how much of a legend Novak is; whereas, Nadal is revered by the press and public, his name is like a legendary folklore. I love anti-heroes, but feel like Dayne might have too much in him today

First Blood was a great movie. One of the rare movies where Stallone acted so well.
