Rooting for Fed but wonder if he will cry after the match if he loses ? Not defending your home turf against your biggest rival has to be a hard pill to swallow.

Not bashing at all, just annoying to see people saying Djokovic is going to destroy whoever wins this match. In my opinion, and I’m right more often than I’m wrong, this is the championship match Bc I honestly don’t give Djokovic much of a chance.
You do know we're not in 2008 anymore, right?

He will deliver a beatdown to Federer, but Nadal might be a little tougher. Still expect a comfortable victory even against Nadal though.
I think Federer will win this match. I don't think Nadal is playing well enough IMO.

The problem is Novak might slaughter Fed in straight sets. It might be a very bad beatdown.
If it were Novak instead of Nadal in this match, Fed would have been 2 sets to love down and every single serve would be coming back.

Novak would have never choked like Nadal did in the TB.

I don't know about the second part. ESPN said that's the first time Federer's been bread sticked at Wimbledon. He must have played bad though to lose a set like that on grass.
He didn't push too hard. I think he was being smart. He knows when Nadal is red-lining... it doesn't matter what you do (unless you also are red-lining). So he took a bit of a mental break... and made sure he would be serving first in the third-set. Lots of guys do this. Especially in best-of-five. Federer has resisted this kind of tactic in past years -- to his demise.

I think it's great he did it.

Federer should be going for the forehand kill and coming to the net on every passive or weak neutral ball. He will never win the game of consistency with Nadal.

G.O.A.T.
Fed's backhand is really suffering and he's just gonna have to absolutely fire his serve. He's being handcuffed and it's easy pickings to the FH in the end for Dal.
