Federer will win Wimbledon 2019

#1
(was about to make this BEFORE hearing the injury new but then I fell asleep. Still, I'm going for it!)

Why? Simply put, he's playing better than any of his rival ATM.

Quite surprising, but 2019 Fed > 2018 Fed (minus AO). Meanwhile, Nadal's been playing like crap (except for AO where he got a boost from weak competition and mental midget next gen). That actually hurts a bit to see, but seems like age has caught up to him

Djokovic has been playing bad since AO too. (even his AO form is not the same as old prime Novak, but then again there's a reason why the big guys are still the same for the last 10 years - hints: mental midgets and chokers all around). I dont rate his Madrid triumph highly either. Both Thiem and Tsitsipas were either physically or mentally spent or both after beating Fed and Ralph.

The rest of the guys, does not have slam winning mentality. Except for Potro but I doubt he can go all the way. Cilic does well on grass but has been crap this year too.

So yes, I'm hoping for #21. And hope Fed will heap up fine.

I wouldn't be so sure. I doubt it to be honest with you. Something extraordinarily would need to happen. The draw would need to open ... Djokovic out, somehow, I doubt that ... I hope I'm wrong but let's be realistic here.

Then you have other good grass players. Everyone is hungry. We'll see.

I think that more people than Nadal or djokovic can put him out. Remember the last 2 years? Who on earth thought Anderson of all people would put him out? Or last year (I can't even remember who eliminated him).

Wimbledon is dangerous. Anyone can be blown of the court in any match. And these days, Federer is seeing that happen to him a bit more often than in the past, in my opinion.

Especially mentally...

I will slowly wither away into dust until nothing is left. The memes will be all that is left of Fedpo.
Please don't go away

Fed is not being eliminated since last 2 editions of wimby. Anderson beat him in 2018, but fed won 2017 wimby without dropping a set

I agree with you of your assessment of Federer. Federer's improvement is astounding.

If he manage to avoid Anderson and Millman, yes he can do it.

Ah. That's right. I'm mistaken. Not sure why I remember 2 different editions. Maybe it was Tsiptispas at the AO, which had a similar feel where he lost unexpectedly, that confused me. But you're right. Not sure why I thought it was 2 consecutive years.

Federer has lost his last three slam matches which went past 3 sets - had MP against Anderson and SPs to go 2-0 against Millman and Tsitsipas at USO and AO respectively.
(All his wins have been in straight sets)

You may be onto something OP, and it got me thinking. Fedr's results in the last 7 WBs is pretty astounding and he was 30yo in 2012! :

2012 W
2013 2R (bad-back year, his worst year since 2003)
2014 F (had a BP to serve for the title in the 5th)
2015 F
2016 SF (on 1 knee and still could've won in 4)
2017 W (no sets lost)
2018 QF (hand issue but still had 1 MP)

2019? Oh, Fedr will have his chances. ;)

That's the other one I was thinking about! Millman. But that was at the US open. You're right.

Disappointing results in the last 3 slams. Hopefully he'll be better at Wimbledon this year

Yeah in his last 3 slam losses as soon as he's lost a set I have felt like the match is gone, his demeanor just seemed like he was done and slightly given up. Dunno what it is

Didn't watch the Wimbledon match but in USO it was like he just refused to rally and kept spamming dropshots
At AO his FH was very poor. I think he had like 30 odd errors from that side and less than 10 winners.Hit so many FH UFEs on crucial points
 
#29
There's an understatement if ever I saw one. ;)
See, the thing is, we have to have fail till the end, right.

Even if it's a Roger v Rafa RG match thread here and if I had to vote, I would vote for Roger in three. I vote with my heart not head. I vote for what i want to happen, not what I think will happen. :D

Win or lose together with the Maestro.

At Wimbledon it felt to me like at Wimbledon 2011 where he was 2 sets to 0 up against Tsonga but there didnt seen to be any urgency in his play, it was like he was just playing without the killer instinct to take the match, almost like he was happy with winning 2 sets and that was enough

He played very passive. I really wonder what went wrong with him suddenly in W 2011 QF

Lol, ridiculous. Novak played great in Madrid, his game level was better than he was in IW, Miami and MC.
Djoker is the biggest obstacle for Fed's 9th Wimbledon triumph, that's obvious.

I actually agree, Wimby 19 could be Roger's final charge at the slams. He might even beat Novak along the way.
Highly unlikely Fed is beating Nole at Wimby. Since and inclusive of 2015, Federer is 3-8 against Djokovic and he hasn't beaten Djokovic at all in over 3 years. Even worse is that Federer is 2-8 against Djokovic in majors since and inclusive of 2010. Fed hasn't beaten Djokovic in any major since 2012, 7 years ago.

Tsonga just redlined..
Fed didn't even have a single freaking breakpoint after 2nd set

Said who? And it's a definite NO by the way.


You sound a bit dull mate.


Glad you know it, now it's time to practice ;)
Wasn't an attack, just all the previous threads over the years get to you. I was a lurker here so know a lot of threads made declaring so and so player a winner before any clear indications. Didn't read the last line of your original post. My apologies.

He will always have a chance at Wimbledon with the style of play. But he’s almost 38 in a couple of months. He will have his bad days. One bad day and he could be done at Wimbledon in almost any round. That’s just what happens when players age

Look at Novak and Rafa. They both 32 and 33 (very soon) very inconsistent results this season. Without the injury factor either (for Novak). Nadal is supposedly healthy now but also inconsistent on clay where he is suppose to be unbeatable

I’m shocked roger almost won Indian Wells and won Miami this year.

I say Federer has a 40% shot at winning Wimbledon this year. He’s best odds.

I think he has less than 10% chance at us open. He just doesn’t have it on the slower us open courts.

He’s got a 1% chance at French open.
