Jeez, what a positive, thoughtful post!! When the OP asks who you'd back with all your possessions on the line, he's asking you to bet with your head. I don't know about you, but with my stuff on the line, I'd back who I think will win, not who I cheer for. So the comment about you wanting Federer to lose is irrelevant.I'm going with Nadal on this one, not just because I think he can win but because I really want him to win. I would love to see Federer's reaction after losing Wimbledon and to see how he handles himself after 5 straight Wimbledon titles and an amazing streak come to an end on grass. Maybe Federer will start throwing some racquets around the court like he did occasionally in his younger days on tour. See him turn into Safin for a day, i doubt it though but I would like to see some negative emotions from him.
well unless he figures out a S&V plan I don't think it's gonna happen. I don't think he's gonna be able to sit back on the baseline and bang with Rafa. He got away with that crap with Safin but I don't think Safin gave his 100%.. I guess we'll see, hopefully I'm wrong tooI voted for Nadal. The way they are both playing right now, I can't see how Nadal losing to anyone. But I hope I'm wrong. I'd gladly pay up, plus interest! for the chance to see Roger back in top form, playing with his old elegance and precision and winning his 6th Wimbledon!
