Question Just speculating for fun

I was wondering what would you think about Federer and Nadal as a doubles couple.

Do you guys think they could win Wimbledon with just 2 weeks of training? (starting this next Monday, for example)

I have no doubts about that, I think they'd be able to win the cup fairly easy. Federer greatness + Nadal greatness = WIN/WIN situation. They'd make and incredible doubles couple, IMO. Their combined skills put together make a nearly perfect player.

We've seen Federer and Wawa winning Olympics and a not fully fit Rafa winning a MS teaming up with Marc Lopez defeating the best couples in the world during the process.

I repeat, this is not going to happen (not now nor ever, probably), but I think this could be an interesting topic until tomorrow's final.

Vote and discuss.

Re: Just speculating for fun

I think if they tried enough times they probably could. With two weeks of training? I doubt that would be enough. I really hope they play together some time just for fun, winning anything would be a bonus, it would be great publicity apart from anything else

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Sφderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Pretty sure it WILL happen one day. Nadal has asked Federer twice already, and while Fed declined because of scheduling reasons and the like, he did comment that he found it a very nice idea. Should the time arrive that the two of them will find themselves sliding on the rankings for a bit (hopefully, not the coming couple of years ), Fedal taking part in a doubles tournament wouldn't surprise me at all, if only as a 'gimmick'.

Re: Just speculating for fun

It won't happen until roger stops focusing on winning slams.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Re: Just speculating for fun

Would be nice to have a special doubles tournament where all of the top 32 in the world play with one another or something...
