    After watching Federer for the first time in this years wimbledon against Grosjean, I must say I was relatively impressed. Whenever the opportunity presents itself, my coach enjoys pointing out to me various things that Federer does well on court, most importantly the slice backhand. Although I'd really like to see a tight 5 set thriller, I really think that Federer is going to close out the final in 3. Roddick doesn't appear to be playing his best tennis, and although he has the mastermind of scouting in Brad Gilbert, It shouldn't be any contest. Those winners on the run that Federer hits are nothing short of brilliance. I think the only chance Roddick has is to hold serve and come up with some insane play in the tiebreaks. If he can do that, play consistently, paint the lines, and have a little grace from God, he just might pull it The way Federer plays I really wouldn't be suprised if he eclipses Sampras' record at Wimbledon (if he stays healthy).
