Will Nadal be Favourite to win Wimbledon?

Come on let's face it guys, he's the best out there at the moment on all types of surfaces, no one can even get close to him. I think Roger's time is over, especially after he lost last year's Wimbledon, so I think it will be all Nadal this year even on the grass, What do u think?

I don't think it will surprise anyone if Nadal wins the Wimbledon final in straight sets, regardless of who he plays

Re: Will Nadal be Favourite to win Wimbledon?

The favorite? I would say yes. Overwhelming favorite? I would say no.

A five time champ and a (potentially) dangerous Andy Murray will be waiting in the draw. But there is no reason to doubt Nadal at this point on the grass. He has proven himself on the surface, and he's the defending champ.

Re: Will Nadal be Favourite to win Wimbledon?

1) He's the defending champion, and reached the final 3 years in a row
2) He's the number 1 ranked player in the world
3) His main rival on the surface is nowhere near his peak level

It would be pretty fishy if Nadal wasn't favourite for Wimbledon. Massive favourite like Federer used to be? No chance.

Re: Will Nadal be Favourite to win Wimbledon?

I would say yes too.He has 50% chance at least
Roger has about 35%.
All the other players has 15%.

Re: Will Nadal be Favourite to win Wimbledon?

just drop it alright, u just want to jinx rafa so that he wont win wimbledon! i have noticed lately the rafa haters have been saying he will win everything just to jinx him! rafa will win whatever he wants and his fans will enjoy that when he does!!! as a rafa fan i dont expect him to win everything, when he wins im happy but i would say he has a good chance as any other player to win wimbledon!! no one is favourite in any tournament, murray was favourite at the aussie and look what the curse and jinx did to him!! so please no more nadal will win this and that!!! obviously his fans would love to see such a humble guy win every tournament but that doesnt happen in pro sports!

Nadal just has to win every Wimbledon till he's age 30 and he'll overtake Sampras record of 7 Wimbledon crowns!

Re: Will Nadal be Favourite to win Wimbledon?

Up until Miami I thought he was a strong favorite. I'm not sure what's going on with him now. Although he has always had bad patches of play here and there but always brings it for the big occasions. I hope and think he will do so at Wimbledon. He needs at least a couple more of those to add to his slam repertoire to have chances of getting to 13-14 and hard court slams will always be the toughest for him.

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal
