Fourth meeting at Wimbledon, third final. Each time Fed has beaten RAFA at a tournament he's gone to win the title. Will Djokovic stop that trend and equal Borg?
The last time Fed beat Djokovic was during that magical summer of 1985. A maturing Joe Piscopo left Saturday Night Live to conquer Hollywood. People Express introduced a generation of hicks to plane travel. And I was in a barbershop quartet.

Federer to roll back the years and lose in 4 lol.
Too be fair Fed is a phenomenon for 38 but Djokovic will be a step too far

Djokovic will be the heavy favorite but the crowd will be pulling for roger. Hope the old man can come up with one more special performance.

okay i know i was pessimistic about nadal but that is because that match up has scarred me, but this is like the new fedal and has been for a while idk what to think the idea of fed losing yet again another final to novak on grass.

First of all, I'm so happy that Federer is here once again, beating Nadal en route to the final, it's unreal. I still can't believe it.
About the final honestly, if it was 2015, I'd say Federer has a great chance of winning the whole thing.
Now let's be real, unless some miracle happens, Novak beats Fed in 3 or 4 sets. Djokovic is so good it's no shame losing to him. I hope they both play well and we see a great final nonetheless, excited to see another piece of this epic rivalry!

Odds at the moment are 1/2 for Djokovic and Federer 13/8 and this is fresh from the 2nd semi result. Djokovic is a strong favourite.
 
Anybody who voted for Federer to win should have his head examined. Just like anyone who thought Nadal has a chance against Federer.

Federer in 3 pretty easy sets, unless he has a stinker where he throws one away like he did today. Should be a comfortable victory though today was the much more difficult task.
And then if he loses he is an old man and was obvious Novak would win cause he is 6 years younger.

Already at the start of this thread you see some haven't learned. Suddenly people are confident before anything has happened.

Will federers new tactics against nadal work against djokovic? I feel he struggles to read and return nadals serve a lot because of him being lefty but Novak has the same baseline pedigree as nadal while returning and serving better IMO. What can fed do to.give himself a better chance ? Like today je absolutely has to win the first set imo.

Djokovic hasn’t looked stellar so far. Solid but not stellar. He’s a long way from his 2015 form. Still the favorite against Fed, but if Fed can hang with Nadal from the baseline, he shouldn’t be utterly overwhelmed by Djokovic’s ground game either. Djoko’s return might be too much, though. We’ll have to see. I’m cautiously optimistic Fed can pull the upset.

Both players will have their lapses. It all comes down to who capitalises at the right time, as we saw today as well. Djokovic the more likely but seriously would be an astounding story for Fred to beat Nadal and Djokovic back-to-back to win the title a month shy of 38.

Federer played well today. The problem with Federer is trying to win those second serve points against Djokovic. He has to win those.

The 2 best grass court players in the game today. What's not to like? If Djokovic forces Federer to play his grinding game then Nole in 4. Federer needs to be very aggressive especially on his return of serve and just go for it. Flip a coin to pick the winner. Hope it's a classic.

Well yes if he loses that’s the only reason why he would lose. There’s no comparison between the 2 players

Djokovic plays very passively these days which is good enough against the majority of the field. It won't be good enough against Federer in this form. Really fancy Federer here in 4 or maybe even 3.

ON GRASS I should add. On hard courts it’s a different story Djokovic is up there with the best of the best. Grass is and always will be Roger’s surface

Federer’s second serve has been a problem in all their matches. In both Wimbledon finals federer couldn’t do much on his second serve.

Hopefully Federer can return Novak's serve better. Today it was shocking to see Nadal winning so many free points on serve
