WWW: Wimbledon R16 Federer vs Melzer

Tough match-up for Federer. Jurgen is unpredictable, so it can go either way.

I would say Roger in 5, after Melzer choking in the decider.

Re: WWW: Wimbledon R16 Federer vs Melzer

Roger in 4 I think, Melzer ain't an easy opponent

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Federer has now entered normal operation mode. Hence, Fed in 3 sets.

Re: WWW: Wimbledon R16 Federer vs Melzer

I am going with Melzer in this one . Roger is returning awful and Melzer serve is one of the worst to return for Roger , Melzer will also attack Roger's second serve and make the pressure on Roger's BH . In this form one of the worst opponents for Roger

Re: WWW: Wimbledon R16 Federer vs Melzer

Fed will win regardless. Melzer could give him a match, but will choke even if he's in a position to win.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Re: WWW: Wimbledon R16 Federer vs Melzer

im sure alot of people know this but despite melzer beeing in top 100 and the top 50 regularly for the past 8 years they have never met on the pro tour.

altough they played quite a few (double) matches on the junior tour.

It's more like a display of an awful match up, brainless tactics and chokefests.
