2018 Wimby Champion - Rafa

Its an interesting Semi's line up. I was hoping for Delpo to make it to final two and then lift the trophy, I guess the psyche did its job. Having said that there's no doubt that RAFA is a great champion and deserved to win too!!

I am going for RAFA to be the favorite to win the championship, however, John Isner is an underdog for this year...I am absolutely thrilled to see him doing to so well!! I'd like to see someone after Roddick to have their American presence in the slams...
 
I agree. I think Rafa is gonna do it. It’s quite remarkable after all his Wimbledon woes, he looks set to win another Wimbledon. I have to admit the guy is epic and you can never rule him out anywhere.

As a Novak fan, I am happy with novaks return to form too. He’s close to his best tennis again. Friday will be a cracker!

What a refreshing post/thread considering all the mudslinging that happens in this forum on a daily basis. It would definitely be another great match on Friday. Can't wait.

I predict Novak returns to form and takes the title. I feel like his return game and ground game are better than the other semi-finalists. He's starting to really see and hit the ball well from everywhere on the court, by the end of the Nishikori match he was putting the ball anywhere he wanted with authority. Rafa barely got through against a depleted DelPo who has very limited movement and a limited backhand. Novak's serve also stronger than Rafa. I think Novak puts more pressure on Rafas service games and generates more BP opportunities. 4 sets. Then same in final. Neither Anderson or Isner can stay with Joker on the baseline. Anderson was on fire, but lets be real, Fed didn't play his best match, and seemed stubbornly relying on his slice, and it was just sitting up for Anderson--he solved it and Fed did not adjust. Novak will be hitting over the top and drilling laser backhands.
