Federer and Andy, how far can they go...

Its been looking very good for Federer. Not only has he been showing ungodly form, but he is the only player to not have to play back to back matches. Plus he actually had two days off in a row. I don't think he will have any trouble until he gets to Hewitt.

Poor Andy, has to play a third match in a row. And against of all people Taylor Dent. Dent when he is on, is unstoppable. He is in my personal opinion, better than Henman at Serving and Volleying when his Serve percentage is high. Dent plays his volleys with more angle and deeper. Roddick better not let his service games get broken, because Dent will be incredibly hard to break on grass. This match will probably have at least 2 tie breaks. If Andy didn't have to play so many matches back to back I would think he could win in 3 sets, but now I predict this match to go either way in 5 tough sets. If andy gets through this one, he will cruise until the Semis. Then he will be tested by Phillopoussus. Yes I said it. I don't think Henman will win Wimbledon ever. I also don't think he has much of a chance against Mark Poo.

Why poor Andy? he'll have to play 3 matches in a row, but so have a lot of people. He's fit enough to play 3 matches in a row, or even more. Both players can go all the way, or they can stink up their matches and lose tomorrow.

If it's a Fed/Roddick Slam final, then it will be another three set non-starter.

I wish. I severely doubt it.

Come on Henman, spoil the party! If Federer gets past Johansson he'll have a tough match either way against Lopez or Karlovic. I don't care how talented he is, he ain't breaking either of them very often on grass, especially Karlovic.

I am actually hoping for a Federer-Henman final. I think it would prove more interesting than a Federer-Roddick final anyway.

Yeah that's the final I'd most like as well. I think it has the makings of a much better final than a Federer/Roddick encounter.

Atleast it wont be a battle of big serves, if Federer and Henman play like it would be if Fed/Andy play. It will be a battle of risky play/Net approaches, and finesse. They imo have the best 2 grass court games.

Well, thats what were going to see if Federer and Roddick play in the final! ;) :o I think Federer and Henman has the potiental to be a 4 or even a 5 set final.

What an obvious statement you just made. I was waiting for that one. And I think even if it's Tim/Fed, it's gonna be a straight sets win. just my opinion.

I agree with you, I just guess I'd like Henman actually in a final for a change, I'm tired of all these semis losses you see, and much as I love Roddick and want to see him do well, he has many more years in which to win Wimbledon, whilst Tim is reaching his twilight , so to speak. Therefore I'm just hoping for more than a straight sets win, I'm trying to have more faith in Henman at the moment. I'll see more clearly when it isn't so late, and will stop with the rambling because this is probably making little sense now. Even I'm confused about what the point of this message was, I think it's got a bit lost now. :)

it would be very, uh, 'pretty' if Henman made the final, a 'fairytale' ending...

call me a scrooge, but so-- Mauresmo and the French, Henman and Wimbly, i feel like people put so much pressure on them to win just because they are the Great Hope of their nation and that's part of the reason they never do, like they're given this assignment to win these tournaments, just because, they've been led to believe they have to or something

Since when did Lopez and Karlovic become tough matches for Federer? Neither of them have excellent results on grass.

Both Roger and Andy are going to have tough 4th round. Watch out for Popp, who suddenly starts playing like a champ when it comes to wimbledon. Last year he nearly defeated Mark Phil.(in 2000 he made to quarters too) If he gets his serve going and If Dent can take bit gas out of Roddick, Popp can cause upset. I think Karolvic can give a tough fight to Roger.

Don't know, cause they haven't played yet, but after ToJo, Roger will possibly have to play Karlovic, which is tough. After that, Lleyton/Moya, which I don't need to go any further, both in awesome form. Roger can get stopped right there.

Andy, well, after Dent, he should be okay till Semis.

Tim v FedEx's gonna be a great grass slam title match. Classic, I'd say.

I totally agree with that. This one would have a whole lot of noise especially if it is going to be a close one. This is the dream final.
