Re: Make no mistake, Rafa is favorite for Wimbledon
Can we please take Halle out of the picture. The grass there is like the 90s Wimbledon. Very quick and low bounce.
In fact, Halle is much quicker than Queens which is much quicker than Wimbledon. And Wimbledon itself slows down significantly by the second week.
So the losses to Kohlschreiber and Brown should not be taken seriously. The losses to Rosol and Darcis should be. But, is Nadal bound to run into a hot server in the first week third time in a row? He's probably drawing some clay players and he'll survive the first week.
No one of the following players would beat him: Djoko (choking), Murray (not fit), Federer (old), Berdych (!!!), Wawrinka (can't move on grass), Tsonga (not in form).
Greatest of the tennis greats: Roger Federer
Amazing Dazzling Tennis: Wawrinka, Tsonga, JMDP, Dimitrov, Kohlschreiber
