Federer vs Murray wimbledon match

Maybe it is a bit early for grass, but then I dont find many topics on clay except which decade Nadal will be beatable on clay.

Anyway, Federer vs Murray on grass is very interesting. Federer seems to have problems finishing rallies against Murray on hardcourt and Murray can handle Federers slice as easy as brushing his teeth. On grass it would be different, even on the slow grass of wimbledon. But then Murray would have a brittish stadium go crazy, something which can turn against him aswell if he starts feel some Henman vibes. Anyway, I would like to know what you think of this matchup, would Federer in bad form be the favorite or would Murray hold the streak against Federer alive?

I really hope this matchup will come true in Wimbledon this year, I am quite sure Federer would get the job done and warm up nicely for Nadal in the final. What do you think.

wow is clay really that boring or what?

I highly doubt Murray is going to make it to the semis or the final to meet Federer, but in case he does, you will witness a more brutal version of US Open 2008.

Re: Federer vs Murray wimbledon match

I'd actually say Murray, especially if it goes to a deciding fifth-set. Fed's a mental midget in deciding sets lately.

I dont think it will go to a 5th set, in fact I doubt Murray would take any set at all. But Federer really, really must find his serve again before Wimbledon if he wants to feel comfortable against these young players.

Clay is very uninteresting, Ill tell you that. Will Nadal win without losing a set? How many sets will Nadal lose? Which players can take a set from Nadal?

It can be fun, I enjoyed the 2 matches between Djokovic and Nadal but ultimately I have nothing to discuss about these matches.

Re: Federer vs Murray wimbledon match

Murray still has a lot to prove against big players at the slams. If this match-up were to happen, it could be another anti-climax whereby Murray gets flattened, but of course due to their head-to-head it's an intriguing one that a lot would want to see. Federer in four, I think.

Re: Federer vs Murray wimbledon match

Never too early for grass season.

In this matchup, Federer's definitely got the edge. Federer in 4 would probably be the favorite at the books. We'll see how Murray handles the pressure.

Maybe but then he could choke like he has been doing recently..If you remember gasquet choked away a 2 sets lead to murray because the british crowd was behind him.Anyway I'am not looking forward to this match.

Re: Federer vs Murray wimbledon match

Grass and the fact that its a grand slam best out of 5 would make Fed the fave.

No you keep it up! Im already reporting you and your mod to the proper authorities. This racist hating has to stop once an for all on online forums. Mods and posters who sit behind their computers think they can hide and therefor act out their hateful fantasies. This stops right here!

Re: Federer vs Murray wimbledon match

Fed in 3 or 4 me thinks. I am still not convinced of Murray's prowess on grass.

Federer in 4. He's got a great grass court game.
