I had a terrible dream

A few weeks ago, already...

Didn't post it, because it seemed ridiculous at first, but now more and more likely...

Fed and Nadal would play the 2018 Wimbledon final

Fed starts off very nervy, losing the first set 7-5 against average Nadal.

Then he regroups, winning the next two 6-3 6-2

In the fourth he can't finish it off, pressure of slam race weighing on him, losing 7-5 again.

In the fifth combination of fatigue and stress makes him collapse, losing 6-0.


Nadal wins 7-5 3-6 2-6 7-5 6-0

Nadal has survived the first few rounds, and I don't think anyone left in the draw can stop him before the final now. Weather continues to be hot, making the grass play like clay. Fed is old and can't bring his peak game all the time. This scenario is looking more and more likely. Let's hope my dream was fake.

I dreamt a dream,about dreaming a dream in which a dream had another dream. In that particular dream,I dreamt the whole night,that Fraud was holding the plate ,Nole was the one who rose in Might, Ned had lost in the last eight.

But this ain't LOTR,no?Maybe it is ,For it fits the tennis story told by years past.L Ike Fading magic is the strength of the big 4.


Nadal is Melkor no?
Fraud is Manwe,Nole is Tulkas.MUGRAYGOAT Is Eru Illuvatar

Anyone who gets both above references is a certified geek.

A good quote from Nadal's press conference after beating De Minaur. Asked whether he wanted to face Federer in the final "I would rather face an easier opponent. I am not stupid."

Nice avi. I think it's about time that we started a Swat Kats tribute thread in Odds & Ends.
One of my favourites to watch on Cartoon Network as a kid. I have no idea why there isn't any rerun of the Swat Kats episodes. They are far better than the cartoons kids these days have to watch.

Nadal has not reached a stage further than 4R since 2011, he is trash on grass.

Meanwhile Federer is playing great grass court tennis, has not lost a set last year to win Wimbledon, and this year so far has not even faced a single breakpoint on his serve, and due to his new improved backhand and Nadal's more aggressive playstyle he is crushing Nadal even on slow hard courts a evident last year in IW and Miami.

To claim Nadal has any chance of beating Federer in Wimbledon final is hilarious, he is not even likely to break Federer or win a single set.

Federer would have to be half injured and playing absolutely horrible which he is not.

And Nadal won't even reach the final lol, sadly because it would be nice for fed to beat up on him a bit.

You sound like Lube at the Ao. Fed will be ok either way, no matter the direction of the wind.

Fed pwns nadal since he switched to a similar grandma racket (98"). Dont let the rankings fool you, much like h2h, it isnt relevant
