They should then help each other. Their managers should get together behind the closed doors and make a deal: Rafa will skip RG and let Roger win it and Roger will skip Wimbledon and let Rafa win it.

Both of them will have what they want and looking for!

Re: So Rafa and Roger respect each other and each wants what the other has?

Rafa is in a bad position in that agreement. RG comes first and his chances of reaching the Wimbledon final again are lower.

BTW is not the first time I read a post like this. But is a ridiculous utopia. Only the exhos are fixed.

What do you call moonballing? Everybody can moonball. Can you do this?
At the other end of the spectrum was the Spanish player Sergi Bruguera, who generated topspin at an incredible rate that averaged over 3300rpm, more than 3 times as much spin of Mary Jo. Bruguera's average on 8 forehands was actually 3331rpms, and included the single fastest spinning forehand we recorded, an amazing 3751rpms in a match against Marcelo Rios.

In men's pro tennis it normally takes about 1 and 1/3 seconds for the ball to travel from one playerUs racket to the other in a baseline exchange. In the case of Sergi Bruguera's forehand, this means the ball is turning over itself 70 to 80 times as it travels to his opponent!

Yeah but I think if federer won RG without going through Nadal It would not be same for him. I think he enjoys the challenge that Nadal brings to the table. Now wheather or not hes getting tired of that by now is another question.
