Fedal- the worst possible Wimbledon final

1. Saying that Fedal is the best rivalry in tennis is the biggest bullshit I have ever heard.
2. Federer always finds a way to choke: some UE, some moonballs on the center of the court, double faults.
3. Saying that Wimbledon 2008 was the best match in Open Era is even better bullshit that in point 1. Terrible play from Federer, almost lost in 3 sets.

To conclude, I can stand ever Federer losing to Djokovic, to avoid predictable chokefest in final.

Rome 06 and Wimbledon 07 were so much better quality wise than Wimbledon 08, that one became famous because of the drama and the fact that it was the change of the guard for Rafa becoming #1 after all the Federer dominating years

to me you look like a fedtard who is scared of nadal. i do however agree with your 3rd point. its not accurate to call that match the best match ever when federer was clearly below par.

Well it's the match that the avergae tennis fan, fans that just watch Wimbledon or the slams, want to see. Not just for "Nadulltards" as you so childishly put it. So in that regard it is great for tennis, as it attracts more viewers to the sport.

All old news except for saying that Fedal isn't the best rivalry. It is certainly the best rivalry regardless of how good the tennis is. In terms of rivalry across the whole tennis scene on multiple surfaces and stuff, Fedal is by far most accomplished. Of course there are other rivalries that have more quality tennis in general, but that doesn't matter in a general rivalry.

Ok, me may call me a Fedtard or something, i don't give a shit. But Federer's chokes against Nadal are obvious, only a blind man can't see them. Analyze some matches, trying to be objective. Tons of ue, passive play,looking like a terrified 5-year old boy.
These are fact, not mentioning miracles like blowing 2 mp in Rome, or losing from 5-1 to 5-7 against injured Nadal in Hamburg or 5-set loss against dying Rafa in Australian Open final. Surely these are not chokes.

In those 3 Wimbledon finals it was Nadal who was doing the choking. He blew his chances in the first 2 finals and then almost blew the 2008 final from 2 sets up.

When did Nadal choke in 2006 final? Maybe in the first set losing 0-6, or maybe in the fourth set? Federer should end that match in straights.
In 2007 he was tired.Maybe there was a small choke in 2008, fourth set tie-break.

06-29-2010, 08:01 PM
2006 final-

nadal choked serving for the 2nd set at 5-4 and then again in the tiebreak after leading 3-1.

2007 final- nadal chokes and loses two tiebreaks then chokes again in the final set missing break points in opening two federer service games.

2008 final- nadal chokes after leading by two sets and having federer done and dusted at 4-4 0-40 in the third set. Then he chokes again in the tiebreak and then he chokes again in the 4th set tiebreak squandering match points using double faults and feeding balls in federer's hand when whole court was open.
He still keeps choking in the 5th set missing break points in three consecutive federer service games.

In short Nadal always chokes against Federer @ wimbledon.

i wont say its the worst possible wimby final, but this rivalry has reached a critical point. if its a fedal final and nadal wins, it would be a crappy final, because that has been the trend of late. if federer wins it would be a great final because it would give the rivalry a much needed injection. so in this case it all depends on the result. if it is a fedal final i do think that roger will win however, so i wont mind a fedal final either way.

I've mixed views on Federer versus Nadal finals. In one sense, they are good, as you see some great rallies and shot-making from both players. On the other hand, the match-up is so bad for Federer, he cannot play his best. Worse still, Nadal only needs to use one tactic - endlessly attacking Federer's backhand - to beat Federer, so we see little new.

The 2008 Wimbledon final is very much overrated. There were some moments of drama, but the quality of tennis was shabby throughout. Federer was truly awful for the first two sets, barely being able to serve and spraying balls everywhere.

Choking-mental weakness is a very important part of the game. If Fed constantly chokes against Rafa, that shows he fears him and does not think he can beat him. Nadal may not be a better player overall than Roger, but the fact he has a substantial H-H advantage is not primarily due to choking. It is because Nadal knows how to beat Roger and is not afraid to do so, unlike most of the other players of this MUG era.

It's good because of the drama but it's lame in terms of quality. It's basically a guy hitting to another player's weakness (backhand) until he makes an error. Really, I'd much rather see a match between players going for their shots rather than playing to the other guy's weakness in order to force errors.

If I were Nadal, I'd take the wins however I could get them; & I don't underestimate how well Nadal has to play to beat Federer, even with his match-up advantage. If he plays badly - which he very rarely does - he gets hammered (TMC 07, Madrid 09). I'm a spectator, & I just find what Nadal has to do well to beat Federer - hitting relentlessly accurate wide-swinging cross-court topspin balls to the backhand - boring & predictable to watch.

No. It would be utterly pointless and boring. As would a Murray-Federer final, because Andy seems to have a mental block when it comes to taking sets off Federer in major finals. With that in mind, a Fed-Sod final would provide the most entertainment.

But saying that, if someone could guarantee that Murray would bring his game against Federer, then that would also be interesting to see.
