Please take that back, do not put that out in the universeIt will most likely be difficult. Isner must be serving very well so Fed May not get many looks and then even if he does, Break Pointerer has not gone away.
I’ve just got a horrible feeling that Isner gets it done in 3, winning two tie breaks.
Djokovic will have three weeks off, since he won't play any tennis until W most likely.Djoko can sure make it far at RG. That may not be a good thing for Wimb though.
KAndy and Tsitsipas are guaranteed to be “fresh” for Wimb.
Federer is looking very good here, in IW not playing Nadal IMO hurt him. Here he is playing all his matches and seems to be enjoying the court now.Roger loses another close final?
I don't feel too good about this for some reason. Just a hunch.
Of course, title no.101 would be amazing.
Grass is a heavenly abode for good servers.Djokovic will have three weeks off, since he won't play any tennis until W most likely.
Federer just savaged Tsitsipas in Dubai and Anderson in Miami, he will be ready for them should they meet on grass
Incredible thing is, Federer has only just equalled Nadal in Miami final appearances, yet the former has failed to win a single one.5th final in Miami for Federer (previously 2002 l.to Agassi, 2005 b. Nadal, 2006 b. Ljubicic, 2017 b. Nadal), 5th Masters 1000 final for Isner (previously 2012 IW l. to Federer, 2013 Cincinnati l. to Nadal, 2016 Paris l. to Murray, 2018 Miami b. Zverev).
Combined ages of the 2 finalists is 70, making them the oldest finalists In Masters 1000 history.

And he should be confident. That is how a final technically should be, contested between the two best of the event if possible. Isner has been clutch when it mattered a lot this tournament.Yeah but if it comes to a TB shootout, none of that helps. Isner is playing a final too, he'll be plenty confident behind that serve.
I am supposed to be the pessimistic fed fan here and you all are supposed tell me to cut that out and that fed will winUnfortunately, I have that same feeling. I hope it turns out wrong.
Fed has been returning well. So hopefully he will have some chances to break, and won't be relying on winning the tie-breaks.
I'm a jinx so I try to stay out of Fed discussionsI am supposed to be the pessimistic fed fan here and you all are supposed tell me to cut that out and that fed will win
Surprisingly the guy he beat to win his first ever semi in a Masters also wore his cap backwards as the guy he beat for his 50th....The guy he just beat in the semis was a 2 year old toddler (much younger than any of Fed's kids) when Federer played his first final in Miami.
