Does Federer actually have a chance to reach the final now?

Nadal losing in R1 after crushing everyone at RG. What the...?

Everyone, including his fans in addition to the haters wrote off Roger. He has an impossible battle against Murray in the SF who is stronger than him, faster than him, and more determined than him.

Does Roger actually have a chance now? I feel like this may be his last chance at a slam. He is declining faster than Roddick and Murray/Djokovic/Tsonga/Beryech is killing him left and right.

Of course he has a great chance. Every Nadal fan thought he would beat Federer but he didn't even get out of the first round. He may not drop a set until the semis and Andy has a slightly tougher road.

Re: Does Federer actually have a chance to reach the final now?

I don't see anyone with the remotest chance of stopping him making the SF at least, so depends who he plays when he gets there. The problem is that even if Murray suffers some shock loss, it would probably just be Tsonga instead. I think both would beat Federer at this point.

Yeah and I think Nole's odds just spiked substantially. He's almost certainly going to have to face one of Murray/Federer now and if it's Fed he won't have to go through a potential Nadal epic beforehand.

If we got a Fed v Murray Semi Final then I think Murray is favourite but only marginally so.

Djokovic would stand a much better chance at beating his pigeon Nadal in the final then Federer/Murray.

If it's purely physical and you're watching someone playing six-hour matches over and over and showing no signs of being tired, you'd look at that. - Andrew Barron Murray OBE

It will be very hard for him to beat Murray in his current form (and hopefully JJ also challenges him), but if he gets to the final, he won't be deprived of 8th Wimbledon title.

Exactly. This is bad news for Djokovic. He needs Nadal to make these finals and he wins his slams like in 2011.

I think that's what he means by "odds spiked". His chances went down.

I think this is Andy's Wimbledon. It's one of those times where the stars are just aligning for him you know?

Murray is definitely the favorite to get to the final now. tbh I was really expecting Nadal to reach the final here but I guess should have used my head a little.

Of course. Murray-Federer's gonna be a cracking semi though. Both players will definitely fancy their chances.
