Better Chance To Win Wimbledon....Nadal or Djokovic???

Nadal has played very well on grass the last two years, including taking Federer to five sets last year in the final. On top of that, his game seems to constantly be improving. Djokovic has established himself as the premier hard court player, and the grass should play right into his hands as the aggressor. Many might even argue that these two are the co-favourites this year. I know it's a tough question, but who do you think has the better chance to win Wimbledon this year?

Why do people assume that Nadal thrashing Federer on clay means he will win on grass?

How does that follow?

When did logic become such a rare commodity around here?

At this point, I'd say Djokovic has the best chance of winning, followed very closely by Nadal. I don't think Roger is going to win it. He may not even make the final if Djokovic ends up in his half.

Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)

You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from tennisplanet.me, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)

I said who has the BETTER chance of winning of the two. It has NOTHING to do with Federer whatsoever. I'm a huge fan of Federer, and love his grace and poise. I think he has a fine chance as well. This is a poll between the two young guns.

I agree with the lack of reason, but save your lecture for someone deserving. Cheers!

I think we've gotten to the point where we can safely say is Rafa has a decent chance at Wimbledon without watching a single clay match.

difficult

Nadal was more than once in the final, while Nole improved considerably during the last months

if I had to pick one, it's Nadal as it's not very likely that Nole can defeat Federer and Nadal in case he is in Federer's half

Re: Better Chance To Win Wimbledon....Nadal or Djokovic???

You know. Grass in Wimby is becoming very, very slow. The only thing that keeps Rafa from total domination on grass, too is low bounce, since bounce in Wimby is still much lower than the on clay, but the speed is just little faster in Wimby. If they go back to speed of 90s, Rafa wouldn't have a chance, but if they keep this speed and making it even slower, Rafa will dominate Wimby too.

I don't like Nadal.

Re: Better Chance To Win Wimbledon....Nadal or Djokovic???

none

I see Roger 100% to win it

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

When was logic ever a commodity here in the first place?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
