Will Federer win Wimbledon ?

Yes he can as Obama used to say..but, let's see the conditions :

First the draw must be as smooth as possible (Chela, Paire, Berlocq, Gulbis, Sampras, Laver then Nole with a broken leg in final)

Weather must be nice : not too windy, not too hot, not too cold, not too **

Umpire must be biased (for him of course)

Grass must be GREEN (no blue grass Mr Tiriac por favor)

Ball boys must be polite, nice, patient etc...

His parents musn't divorce

Yes he can !!

Re: Will Federer win Wimbledon ?

No. Federer isn't winning any more Grand Slams. His shots are still there. His fitness is still there. But what ever is going on up in his head that makes him lose concentration and gift away sets is holding him back. Losing three breaks of serve in a semi-final of a major, and losing several breaks of serve against Rafa in Australia tells the story.

Re: Will Federer win Wimbledon ?

This thread has the same answer as a 'Will Haase win Wimbledon?' thread.

It's NO.

You think Federer couldnt beat Djokovic in Basel, Madrid, Dubai and WTF?

People really seem to buy into surfaces playing the same crap, let me tell you that surfaces still play completely different and no one doubts Federer cant beat Djokovic on slow hardcourt or slow/medium claycourts (however he could beat in form Djokovic on the fast claycourts in RG last year).

It all comes to the surface, USOPEN beeing neutral ground for both while Wimbledon, olympics, Cincinatti and indoors beeing to Feds advantage. That is, until it is proven otherwise.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Re: Will Federer win Wimbledon ?

Depends on how the surface plays really. If its slow and high bounce, he'll make it to the semis and bow out to either Rafa or Djokovic.

Nadal's arms strong!

People writing Federer off

Fed wasn't going to beat Nadal or Djoker at slow AO or RG clay, of course.

His best part of the season is coming up, Halle-USO.

We'll just have to wait and see. I hope the GOAT delivers.

Nole was injured and exhausted in Basel and Masters that's why he beat him

Re: Will Federer win Wimbledon ?

Hopefully not. He has decent chances tho; with a good draw and #1 or #2 tripping, he could do it. But that would be awful, cause he's a prick.

Let's hope My Spanish Hero wins again.
