Post RG and pre-Wimbledon overlook

So Djoker is extremely happy at the moment and this happiness could be a huge momentum leading him to a more impressive achievement with this Wimbledon and even further in August at Flushing Meadows. Federer, on the other hand, has been sitting somewhere drinking coffee, taking a peek at the battles on Chatrier from time to time, nurturing his back and getting hungered for his most favorable surface. And, Murray, is probably the only other contender who might make some noise in his homeland championship... What would you be expecting from this year's Wimbledon final? Djoker-Federer? Djoker-Murray? Or Djoker-somebody?

Assuming Murray is seeded #2 he's got a big chance of winning it. I'd rather he faces Novak then Fed there to be honest.

99% sure Djoko-Murray. The other 1% is Fed who really hasnt been playing sinse AusOpen. Seriously - who else?? Djoko will win in 4 sets. Its going to be exciting:eek:.

There is nothing left to look forward in tennis. NOTHİNG.Wimbledon wont change anything probably this time people over hype Kyrgios rather than Thiem.

I dont believe Rafa will play sadly. I seriously begin to afraid of retirement after Olympics.
I just mean in general, I don't expect to see Nadal for a good while. In all reality if you aren't a Djokovic fan, your post is exactly right.

Well, I guess the one positive for Federer is that his two biggest competitors at Wimbledon have played a lot of claycourt Tennis while he gets to play two grasscourt tuneups and prime himself for Wimbledon. I don't think rust will be much of a factor. It's a question of whether he still has the game.

Did you not see the final today? :rolleyes: Murray is Djokovic's pigeon at the slams.
Murray has beaten Djokovic twice in Grand Slams, and has taken every set they've ever played on grass. Need I remind you what Federer did to Murray last year at Wimbledon?

I'm not saying Djokovic will be easier for Murray than Federer, but it's not an outrageous notion.

Federer, nor anyone not named Novak Djokovic is winning Wimbledon. 3 sets is entirely too much for anyone on tour to take from The Mummy in a single match.

as i previously said, i think wawrinka will continue with his pattern of winning the slam that preceeds the one he won the year before and like the other to times it will come out of nowhere and in the least expected way (maybe he wont even win a match on grass before wimbledon), that is 2014-AO,2015-RG and 2016-WB

IM STATING IT RIGHT NOW!

I know Murray has defeated Djokovic in grand slams and at Wimbledon but that was the Murray and Djokovic from a couple of years ago. Their whole dynamic has changed since then. Murray is weak in slam finals. IF Federer is healthy and that's a big if, I am not sure Murray will beat him at Wimbledon either.

But either way Djokovic is the big favorite for Wimbledon. I don't think Federer or Murray will beat him in best of five. It will probably have to be up to somebody else to pull a surprise upset.

I agree that the dynamic has changed, but I think Murray can still beat him.

Djokovic is the favorite, obviously, but what makes you think someone else has a better chance of beating him than Murray or Federer?

Let me ask you a couple of questions:

1. Do you think Djokovic is playing as well this year as he was last year?
2. Did you watch the Anderson match last year?

Djokovic can be beaten. He's the favorite, but nowhere close to being a lock.

Tbh in a strange way I'm starting to root for him. Mainly bc I can't believe how many people STILL don't get the clue that he's not beatable in slams any time soon. What will it take? Jesus! Idk how many more beatdowns he has to deliver. "Not a lock for Wimbledon" LOL!

You have more faith in Murray than I do at the moment.

I just don't think Murray or Federer can beat Novak in best of five these days. I've seen enough the past couple of years. Is anything possible? Sure. But I wouldn't personally bet on it. I think a surprise upset is more likely if anything, i.e. like the almost surprise upset by Anderson last year. Djokovic is so familiar with the games of Murray and Federer and he can outlast them physically and mentally in best of five.

How much money do you have on Djokovic winning Wimbledon? I'm guessing at least $1000 because he's such a lock? Wait, what? You're not putting your money where your mouth is? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Federer hasn't won a Slam in nearly 4 years. My hopes aren't any higher than they should be. Keep running your mouth but not backing it up by putting your money where your mouth is. We'll all pretend you actually believe what you're saying.

I've never bet on a match and I'm not going to start to impress you. It's hilarious the denial you're in. What I want and what I believe are 2 different things. No one is good enough to take 3 sets off Novak at Wimbledon, I might not like it but im done denying how great he is and it's time everyone else acknowledges it too. He's winning the title, bookmark this page.

If you actually believed what you're mouthing off, you'd be making the bet to make yourself easy money. If you'd only make a bet to impress me, that shows you know you could stand to lose some money. Ergo you know Djokovic is not a lock :D

You're just being idiotic now. All I'm doing is giving credit where it's due. If I had a reason to feel like someone else had a chance I wouldn't be backing Djokovic. I predict he will both win Wimbledon and break the slam record, if I'm wrong GREAT. I dont give 2 ****s whether you believe me or not, what's happening in tennis is so obvious, I doubt the functionality of your brain for challenging it.

LOL, you're doing it again. If 3 sets are too much for anyone to take, then how did Stan take 3 last year when Djokovic was arguably even better than this year?

Calling it now. Mahut to knock over Djoker in R2. Serve and volley style all too much for the Serb. Is Novak gonna play a warm up event this year?

You're not "backing" Djokovic. You hate him. And you do think others have a chance, which is why you're not betting on Djokovic. Or are you saying you're averse to certain money?

Did you ever consider the idea that I don't "hate" Djokovic and perhaps just maybe.... He's playing far better tennis than anyone else? The need for some posters to speak for me and try to villify me is pathetic.

You do hate him and he is playing far better Tennis than anyone else. Still doesn't make him a lock, because all it takes is 1 bad match out of 7.

I know. Didn't he say something stupid last year about how it's impossible that Djokovic would beat Nadal in straight sets at the FO? :D
It's the same old tune with that dimwit. He likes to play a childish jinx game and he's even in denial about that. all he goes on about is Ultron this Robot that, as if everything is inevitable and he's in some post-apocalyptic world. Then he shuts out the actual facts about when Djoko actually loses to a first time FO finalist at that! :) He's just a drama queen, more emphasis on one of those words ;)

I agree he is no lock, as you point out Anderson nearly took him out. And if Fed only played the way he did against Murray, would have been a much better match. I'm counting on Fed to do some damage this year if he's healthy.

The ironic thing is that the closest thing there has ever been to a lock is Nadal at FO, his hero, and yet he's a cry baby over Novak being a lock according to him.

You're acting like that's a brave prediction. Almost everyone, including me, is predicting Djokovic to win Wimbledon. All I did was speculate on Federer's chances and you had to butt in and give us your worthless thoughts on how Djokovic, with another one of your random and silly names you've given him, is a lock and I should shut up about other players' chances. If you don't want people to call you out on your BS, stop making nonsensical posts acting like you know the future.

Because I DO think it's possible silly. I'm just sure it's not going to happen. That's just me. You're all beat up over my opinion. Damn this place is juvenile as **** lately. If Novak beats Nadal in straights I'll never post again. That's how sure I am. Hopefully that's good enough for you.
