Final Sunday is not going to be blazing hot, dry conditions this year

I've checked the weather forecast from a number of sources, and the predictions range from 18C to 22C, with a chance of rain, the conditions are going to be much better for Fed this year than the last three years, colder and damper.

Wasn't it cold and damp when he lost to Nadal in the SFs?

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

it was cold, damp, and humid in Hamburg. Fed couldnt beat him at his peak but he is going to beat him while in decline.

Best conditions is when the wind blows the clay off the court making the court plays more like a hard court. Nadal has had his best French Open yet and the conditions have been cold and wet mostly. He struggled against Bellucci due to the strong wind making the court play faster.

affirmative. damp conditions actually favor Nadal as far as i am concerned. Fed gets a lot of mileage and free points with his serve. coupled with that is the fact that Nadal doesnt exactly have the most intimidating/aggressive return of serve.

damp conditions will take some of the sting out of Fed`s serve. additionally, it will be easier to wear Fed down from the ground.

The ball gets up higher to Fed's backhand when it is dry though. Like I said Nadal struggles the most when the wind blows a lot of the clay off the ground. I remember it happening 2 times on Chatrier. Against Mathieu and Bellucci.

right, now i get it if it is wet the clay became similar to the hamburg one, the ball bounce is lower.

In the damp conditions Federer will lose a lot of pace on his shots. Rallies will be long and fall into Nadal's game.

Even in this condition, Federer's BH will still suck anyways.

Not that low bouncing. The clay in Hamburg is different from RG. It won't be as high bouncing as the last 2 years against Fed in the RG finals. I think they use a heavier ball at RG as well, which is more spin friendly.
