Fed is so nervous facing Nadal, that he wanted choke so bad, but Stan didn't allow.

Anything EXCEPT bagel would be ok with me.
 
Very interesting match this! Nadal should win but it’s been so long since they played on clay. Rafa back then dominated the rivalry. However, all meetings off clay since, fed has won and he’s on a decent win streak against Rafa in the latter stages of their careers.

It’s fascinating to see how this unfolds! I think Nadal will win as it’s on clay and at his fav turf but I think it’s gonna be closer than most think!

Federer should just forfeit the match.

In all seriousness, we said it would be a HUGE success for him to be in the second week of RG. Just to have the opportunity to even play a SF and reach Nadal in the draw is a moral victory in itself.
Would be cool if Fred could just go out there, swing freely and see what happens - maybe prolong the match a bit. Taking a set would be extraordinary

There's only one way how this unfolds, and it is not going to be a pretty sight.;)

Something tells me Nadal won't be pulling out this time. ;)

Hmm, not sure how this one will pan out. Part of me thinks it'll be a fairly routine win for Nadal, similar to the 2014 AO semifinal but another part of me thinks it'll be a lot tougher than many people imagine and that Federer will at least win a set. The only thing I'm really certain of is that Nadal will be the one going through to the final.

It's funny to watch the commentators for TC trying to spin this towards 'Federer has a chance', and twisting themselves into a pretzel while so doing.
