Federer to Halle = Nadal to Monte Carlo

Do you think?

federer losing to hewitt in Halle is like nadal losing to, lets say verdesco or ferrer in Monte Carlo (or Barcelona) .... its really worrying... Though federer and his fans downplay the lost.... as always, he is no longer the clear favorite in wimbledon anymore.... don't fool yourself... (bad day in office, bad luck with net cord...)

Re: Federer to Halle = Nadal to Monte Carlo

It's more of Federer to Halle = Nadal to Queens. Three Wimbledon finals in three years, one of these times taking the title and claiming the Queens title as well the same year. Nadal is a great grass court player and he was the favorite to win Queens in my opinion.

What you're trying to say is probably - Federer is the King of Grass, Nadal is the King of Clay, so in case one of them is losing on their preferred surface, people begin to talk about it.

Montecarlo and Halle don't even belong in the same universe.

I am not a Federer fan( so not downplaying anything) but I don't think losing in a final is that bad. He is one of the favorites to win Wimbledon.

Re: Federer to Halle = Nadal to Monte Carlo

Halle is Frauderer's personal bitch tournament that he sets up yearly. This year he couldn't even win it.

Re: Federer to Halle = Nadal to Monte Carlo

Roger losing to Lleyton Hewitt at Halle would be like Rafa losing to Juan Carlos Ferrero at Monte Carlo, ie someone who has a bad H2H, but is still very good on the surface, and has a Slam on it.

Re: Federer to Halle = Nadal to Monte Carlo

the point is both tournaments are the first warmup tournaments of slam on respective surfaces... players are supposed to be fresh (most grass loving cow sucks on clay so they won't go deep in RG, and federer lost in QF in RG so he shouldn't be tired...)

and of course the field in halle is a joke... ok so MC is not a good one, how about barcelona?

Re: Federer to Halle = Nadal to Monte Carlo

Fed losing at Halle final could be like Rafa losing at Madrid final in 2009.

Only difference is Fed is not injured so he will win Wimbledon.

Though... this could also mean Fed might lose early in Wimbledon? Like in QF? Like Rafa lost early in FO last year in R16.

No, not Hewitt.

What I'm saying is that Fed is the fave at Wimbledon BUT I wouldn't be surprised if he loses early...
