Will Federer win Wimbledon ?

Yes he can as Obama used to say..but, let's see the conditions :

First the draw must be as smooth as possible (Chela, Paire, Berlocq, Gulbis, Sampras, Laver then Nole with a broken leg in final)

Weather must be nice : not too windy, not too hot, not too cold, not too **

Umpire must be biased (for him of course)

Grass must be GREEN (no blue grass Mr Tiriac por favor)

Ball boys must be polite, nice, patient etc...

His parents musn't divorce

Yes he can !!

No. Federer isn't winning any more Grand Slams. His shots are still there. His fitness is still there. But what ever is going on up in his head that makes him lose concentration and gift away sets is holding him back. Losing three breaks of serve in a semi-final of a major, and losing several breaks of serve against Rafa in Australia tells the story.

You think Federer couldnt beat Djokovic in Basel, Madrid, Dubai and WTF?

People really seem to buy into surfaces playing the same crap, let me tell you that surfaces still play completely different and no one doubts Federer cant beat Djokovic on slow hardcourt or slow/medium claycourts (however he could beat in form Djokovic on the fast claycourts in RG last year).

It all comes to the surface, USOPEN beeing neutral ground for both while Wimbledon, olympics, Cincinatti and indoors beeing to Feds advantage. That is, until it is proven otherwise.

It's still 50/50 whether he'll win another one. He certainly still has the ability to win another one, but he probably cannot go through an in-form Djokovic and/or Nadal at a slam again. That being said, either or both of them could lose a match or play poorly or be injured and Federer is still the best of the rest by far. 50/50, but I don't think he'll win another one. He's had his chances already.

This is a question only Mark Lenders can answer.

Indeed it is.

I'd never write off Federer completely for any Slam, but can't consider him a favorite here either. Grass has become the surface where Federer is more prone to getting hit off the court in the latter years of his career.

I think one of Raonic (just maybe here, but looks like he has the tools), Tsonga or Berdych could send him home prior to semis. If he avoids these guys, could see him reach semis easily - really can't imagine guys like Ferrer, Tipsy and co. beat him - for the first time in three years, but can't see him beat Nadal here. Rafa is almost unbreakable on grass courts and his serve + forehand combo is amazing on the surface, it's almost like you're facing a big hitting type of player. Rafa has been broken a grand total of 5 times in his last 20 sets vs Federer and Murray (10 vs Federer, 10 vs Murray), his serve is incredibly effective on the surface and don't think Federer will beat him on grass anymore. He could reach the final if he faces Djokovic/whoever defeats Djokovic in the semis though.

The aspects of Federer's game that have declined most are his return, movement and defense, and on grass courts it is far easier to expose that and hit through him. I expect him to lose to the first big serve + big hitting off the ground player he faces (bar Del Potro, who does not play well on the surface and has a powder puff serve) like 2010 or 2011, or to Rafa.

In short, would never write off a 6-time champion, but see too many possible roadblocks to put any money on him winning. So I'd have to say no, he's not winning this.

I think Wimbledon is his last shot, maybe USO, but there will be tougher competition - including DElpo for title

Wimbledon - he needs avoid in QF Tsonga and Berdych, in SF - he needs to play either Nole - we havenīt seen them on grass but i would still favour Roger, Noleīs worst surface is clearly grass no matter his results and 2011 Wimby trophy.

In F he wonīt beat Rafa thatīs for sure so he needs somebody to take down Rafa before - best would be QF - Tsonga, Berdych to take down Rafa, because we can agree Murray wonīt do it in SF.. than in F Murray, Tsonga, Berdych as final opponent - Tsonga, Berdych are clearly far more dangeroues in QF stage, where is no pressure on them than in F.

So Roger neees QF - Ferrer, Tipsy section

SF - Nole instead of Rafa

F - Murray, Tsonga, Berdych, no RAfa

Agree with you that he wonīt beat Rafa and Tsonga, Berdych before SF are far more dangeours than in F - where pressure can get on them. Also Nole-Murray in SF would be best scenario for him i would consider him as favorite in SF with them.

Raonic will have some rankings, probably top guys can face him in R4, but we donīt know really how good Milos is on grass, becasue last year he didnīt play enough matches on grass.

To win Wimbledon is about winning close sets and matches.It`s not like Federer will surely lose to Tsonga or Berdych,obviously Ferrer or Tipsarevic would be a lot easier.Against the big hitters it will all come down to a few points here and there,maybe a couple of TB`s where the guy who plays the big points better will win.
Regardless who wins Wimbledon,that person will not dominate every opponent like Nadal does at the French,with 6-1 or 6-2 sets.There will be plenty of close matches and the concentration has to be high all the time.
We`ve seen it so many times when a big hitter plays one awful return game after the other,only to hold serve and then gets a few good returns in the TB and the set is gone.

Tsonga is equally dangerous in any round imo. He played an awesome final vs Nole in Australia, it was not a choke because of pressure, it was an extremely tight 4-set affair where Nole played a bit better on big points. He's definitely not as prone to let the occasions get to him as Berdych, who played a terrible final vs Rafa.

The best scenario for Federer would be who beats Ferrer in the first week QF, Nole SF, someone other than Nadal in the final. But even then it's questionable that he'd get it done; grass is the one surface where I feel he has truly declined; Tsonga was unplayable for 3 sets last year, I think even peak Federer could have lost that one, but he has struggled against guys who have nothing to hurt him with on paper: Falla, Youznhy, some Serbian guy who serve 30+ aces past him (forgot his name)...

His return and ground game have shown decline on the surface; he could be better this year of course, but if the trend continues, I wouldn't even be awfully surprised to see his QF streak end at this tournament. It's probably better to wait and see him play on grass against Berdych/Nadal in Halle to make any predictions, need to see where his grasscourt game is at.

If Fed keeps playing like this, he will need loads of luck to win it again. The last time he looked great was in IW, ever since then so-so I think. Yea, he won Madrid, but even there he was taking painkillers (finals I think?), he looked drained in Rome, and here was losing sets in every round after R1. Compare that with the last year, where he only dropped a single set coming into the finals.

I don't know whether something is bothering him or he's just slowing down more visibly, but it's not looking good if he wants to add more to his tally.

I think so too, and he's improving every year I think.

Last year's win over Federer was impressive. He only faced one break point the entire match, bar the first set he was serving and hitting impressively.

He'd definitely benefit from faster courts/grass, but I definitely think he can do damage even in the current conditions. When his game is on it's almost unstoppable, it's just huge.

He has not only beaten but comprehensively crushed each of the current top players during Slam matches/stretches of Slam matches, the most proeminent example being of course AO 2008 vs Nadal and the last three sets vs Federer at W last year. Now the question is if he can play at that level for two/three consecutive matches, which is what he needs to win a Slam.

Federer at his peak on grass is only matched by Sampras. And that's taking into account the different grass surfaces at Wimbledon. 90s grass would be edge to Sampras, 2000s grass edge to Federer. No one else is close.

He reached the finals of the last three non-clay slams, and lost to an almost unstoppable Djokovic. He's reached the finals of Wimbledon the last 5 times he's played it.

Yeah, Borg would be in that pantheon of greatness too. I feel like Federer definitely dominated more at Wimbledon during his run of 5 in row though than Borg. Borg had a lot of 5 set wins. Federer was blowing people away until the 2007 Wimbledon final against Nadal.

Never said otherwise. In fact, I didn't even compare Federer's grasscourt ability/greatness to anyone else's. Don't know what you're on about.

I said he could (didn't even say he would for sure) have lost a match to a player serving and hitting the ball like Tsonga was in the last three sets of their QF match last year, that's all - which shouldn't even need to be mentioned, any player can lose vs a guy serving as big and hitting as big and not missing many shots. You know, a bit like how Sampras lost to Krajicek, which doesn't mean Krajicek is better than him on the surface.

Not sure how this is relevant. Nadal routinely destroyed everyone, including big hitters, at Roland Garros, yet he lost to Soderling. Sampras always beat big serves/hitters at Wimbledon, yet he lost to Krajicek.

There's no such thing as unbeatable players on any surface. If Soderling had never happened, Nadal fans would surely now ridicule the idea of a big hitting player beating peak Nadal at Roland Garros (same for Sampras and Krajicek) just like you're ridiculing the idea of Tsonga having any chance of beating peak Fed at Wimbledon. Anyone who knows a few things about tennis knows that if that kind of player can serve brilliantly and paint lines all match long without spraying errors they can beat anyone.

I know supporters of great champions always like to believe their players is unbeatable at their prime/best (maybe on a given surface), but there has never been such thing as an unbeatable player, and there never will be in a sport like tennis.

Obviously an exaggeration to stress how good he was. Almost unplayable would have been more accurate; when someone like Federer can only generate one break point the entire match, you don't even need to watch the match to realize how great he was serving and how big he was hitting the ball without spraying errors.

Unplayable doesn't exist, no player will ever reach an unsurpassable level. Federer is probably the best example of someone playing at an almost unbeatable level for a very long stretch (a few years) and even he had his share of defeats. Federer's level was never unreachable on any given day, what distinguishes him and makes him a great champion is his ability to keep that stratospheric level match after match, tournament after tournament, year after year.

I think it`s an exaggeration when u say Federer destroyed big hitters on grass.
Compared to clay where 6-1 or 6-2 sets are common,on grass the margins are a lot smaller and Federer`s wins were something like 7-6 6-4 6-4 or 6-4 6-3 7-6.Those were easy wins,but it`s not like his opponents never had any real shot.
On clay u see plenty of wins from Nadal like 6-1 6-2 6-2 where he is in no real danger in any set but on grass it`s impossible to get this kind of wins against decent players regardless how good of a player u are

Hasn't Federer got a purpose built grass court at his home in Switzerland to practise on? Me thinks he will serve beautifully for two weeks and do very well. Obviously it'll help if he avoids Berdych and Tsonga in the QF, but they're beatable. Nadal and Djokovic remain the big problems, but as Federer said, "I know I can beat these guys at least one time a year, and that's all that matters".

Federer fluked one :shrug:

He isn't getting anywhere near another one, Nole is way too good at the other three slams, Rafa always is too good for him in slams no matter where, and even Muzzah seems to become a little threat.

Not that he'll make it to those guys with BERDYCH around.

Infectus has clearly reached pandemic stages General Looner

The nuroejaculitus vials are soon to be available.

It's okay. Try fluking 297 weeks and counting.

Nole was injured and exhausted in Basel and Masters that's why he beat him

Yeah, guess he was injured in Wimbledon and Cinci too. Get over it, Federer is miles better on fast (more like midpaced compared to 90s) low bouncing courts even at 31 and will be it until his mid 30s and I called it, but anyone who invest time watching tennis should know this:


You think Federer couldnt beat Djokovic in Basel, Madrid, Dubai and WTF?

People really seem to buy into surfaces playing the same crap, let me tell you that surfaces still play completely different and no one doubts Federer cant beat Djokovic on slow hardcourt or slow/medium claycourts (however he could beat in form Djokovic on the fast claycourts in RG last year).

It all comes to the surface, USOPEN beeing neutral ground for both while Wimbledon, olympics, Cincinatti and indoors beeing to Feds advantage. That is, until it is proven otherwise.

This thread has the same answer as a 'Will Haase win Wimbledon?' thread.

It's NO.

There are so few actual Nadal fans, it is easy to believe that not all Nadal enthusiasts are actual tards. But let's face it: all the notable ones are completely assumed ultratards.

That being said, funny thread.

The winner of RG would probably be the favourite for Wimbledon. That won't be Federer.

No. Federer isn't winning any more Grand Slams. His shots are still there. His fitness is still there. But what ever is going on up in his head that makes him lose concentration and gift away sets is holding him back. Losing three breaks of serve in a semi-final of a major, and losing several breaks of serve against Rafa in Australia tells the story.

Federer is done winning slams.

Novak is winning the French, Wimbledon and Olympics. Federer is done.

This thread has the same answer as a 'Will Haase win Wimbledon?' thread.

It's NO.
