Wimbledons 2012: Unpompous Lawn Tennis Chat

have at it. the lawn is at your disposal. tell us what you really think is going to go down at Wimbledon, either the GS or the Games this year.

can Nole repeat? how about Fed or Murray? what are their chances?


Considering that RG is just a few weeks before Wimbledon and that there are 2 events at Wimbledon this year, this thread is as valid as the RG thread.



lets get this party started.

Re: Wimbledons 2012: Premature Lawn Chair Chat

Nole is very unlikely to defend. He mostly loses against Murray and Roger on grass... mostly.

I hope one of those two wins... preferrably Roger. He can even beat Rafa at Wimbledon if he serves well.

Re: Wimbledons 2012: Premature Lawn Chair Chat

what about the grass warrior? is it wise to write him off? if uninjured, isn't he the real favorite? some might say the real #1...

Oh dear we have an optimist among us . Federer is never going to beat Nadal at a major. Sad but true. Federer can only hope that someone takes out Nadal for him. Federer is my favourite for Wimbledon but if he falls in Nadal's half then the jig is up.

Re: Wimbledons 2012: Premature Lawn Chair Chat

I expect big things from Tomic

And one last hurrah from Poo Witt

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

- Rafael Nadal, ever so "humble", - press conference after shock 4 set loss to Robeen Soderling @ 2009 French Open 4th round.

Djokovic 30%
Nadal 30%
Federer 20%
Murray 13%
Tsonga 2%
Berdych 2%
Tomic 1%
Roddick 1%
other 1%

Re: Wimbledons 2012: Premature Lawn Chair Chat

Excellent thread.

True Spartan tennis will prevail at Wimbledon.

I expect another Djokovic - Nadal final.

Re: Wimbledons 2012: Premature Lawn Chair Chat

B-Nard the new Grass GOAT is obviously going to win by beating Nole in five sets.
