Nadal winning RG is about a 100 times more likely, Fed isn't winning slams anymore.

That's about 50% vs 20%, not even close.

Obviously Nadal winning R.G., although I'd say Djoker is slightly more likely to beat Nadal at R.G. than he is to beat Fed at Wimbledon.

I doubt Nole wins Wimbledon.

A kind draw is all he needs :)

If Fed turns up, he could take Wimbledon. Rafa is not playing anywhere near his best on clay so on grass he's going to be most likely slightly worse. Federer when playing well on grass only has one contemporary, and he is hurting right now. If Rafa fails to win Paris then Wimbledon could be Rogers. But in answer to the question, and current forms in regard, Rafa taking RG is more likely than Fed taking Wimbledon.

Rafa taking RG is 50-50 - only Nole is another one who culd win, while on Wimbledon it is much harder for Roger, because at least Rafa, Nole and Murray could win - 25%? chance so definetely Rafa´s chance at RG are much higher than Roger´s at Wimbledon.

Wimbleodn will certainly be interesting, with Fed fading, Nadal a bit off, Djoko still to prove himself on grass, Del Pot/Davy not really factors. A last hurrah for Roddick? Chance for Berdy? And of course, huge shot for Murray.

That is giant BS. while Nadal and Nole may are the fav, It is far from given that one of the two will win. anything can happen at a slam, other players have chances too to beat Nadal (like 2009 Soderling) or even to win the title (like Fed did).

I think people are writing Fed off at Wimbledon a little too much. It's tough for him to hang on slow courts when other people are playing their best because eventually they can get to his backhand. He knows this, and it leads to him going for more on his forehand, which leads to more errors unless he's momentarily in JesusFed mode. On the quicker grass courts he can dictate with more margin than he can when it's slower, which allows him to avoid many of his weaknesses.

I'm not saying he'll win it, but if he does I won't be surprised.

Assuming Djokovic's form continues, then Fed winning Wimbledon is more likely.

Nadal playing his best at RG will crush Fed, but still likely lose to Djokovic. Fed playing his best at Wimbledon will beat both Nadal & Djokovic.

Nadal is the favorite to win RG...Federer won't be the favorite to win Wimbledon, but he will be up there.

Nadal is more likely to win RG and it isn't even close.

Federer lost 3 points less than super Djokovic on the slow courts in Australian open, you think Djokovic will **** Federer's backhand like in Australia on grasscourts?

I question more how Djokovic will deal with the Federer slice on grass, remember that Djokovic unlike Nadal cant deal with great slices on grasscourts and against Federer his slice is too terrible to use it to counter the Federer slice. Federer uses the slice on grass to leave room for his forehand, there is no way Djokovic will constantly be hiting perfect backhands on the Federer slice on grasscourts. Another question is how many more points Federer will win on net compared to hardcourts, ofcourse Djokovic wont pass Federer as easily as on hardcourts. Also Federer's serve will be alot harder to return on grass courts.

Only Murray and Nadal can deal with the Federer slice, ofcourse Nadal's forehand actually destroys Federer's slice while Murray can really go toe to toe with Federer on slice duels.

That is funny.

if rafa gets murray and soderling in his draw and Novak getting Federer in his draw. i have a feeling Federer will win it all. but if base on statistics and experience rafa getting RG is more likely to happen than the mighty fed getting wimbledon

Good analysis. You forgot to factor in confidence. If the Djoker wins at RG I think he could go on to win Wimbledon. His aim this year is to win Wimbledon. If he loses at the French that might just derail him a bit until the hardcourt season.
