I'll lay Nadal at 4/1 for every single forummer on here that likes to bet on the tennis. That's a much bigger price than any bookie will give you.

No chance in hell Nadal beats Djokovic on grass.

No I heard it from silly people who said the same 2 mins after he lost the last Wimbledon, he went on to get thrashed in USO and then shocked in AO and that too against an exhausted opponent who was playing straight off the back of 2 x 5 sets.

Rafa beat an out of sorts Nole this time around, I can't see it happening again.

I'll make a bolder prediction, Rafa will not make it past the quarters in Wimbledon or USO 2012.

His game is heavily dependent on the conditions and at least one out of those two will not be to his liking.

He will have his chances but it`s certainly different then the French.Every match was like a walk in the park on clay till the final but on grass the sets will be tighter and the margins a lot smaller.
He won`t have the matches under total control like on clay with 6-1 or 6-2 sets;he will have to win plenty of tight sets and who knows,maybe win some 5 setters along the way.
Against a big hitter it will all come down to a few points here and there and a couple of shots decides the outcome of the sets and matches.
He is certainly one of the favourites but if he loses in R4 or quarters it wouldn`t be that big of a surprise.

mmm. i don`t think so that nadal will owns him fron now on , if this nole playing very bad and without serve was capable to push very hard nadal in rg ( this nole lost 2 sets with seppi and tsonga an horrible player in clay ) , I think that in fast courts the serbian will keeping the advantage.

if nole is smart , this perfomance with the exeption of the last point should give nole good confidence for the fast courts.

Lol....I really don't think so. From a triumphant 2 sets and 2-0 up Nadal showed the permanent scar tissue that Nole has layed on him. That's the one thing Novak will take out of this....in 5 setters, Nadal can not run enough at a high enough level....and when the legs go so does his mind a bit.

gorgo1986
06-11-2012, 03:08 PM
Nadal played a stellar Roland Garros up until facing Djokovic, he came out swinging to lead 3-0 but than the nerves came, losing to Nole as many times as he did had its toll on his confidence, he kept on losing his lead in the final in the three first sets, letting Djokovic back into the match, overall he played a lack luster match. Tennis has very much to do with confidence its about believing in yourself, that is what kept Nadal from winning the Australian this year and I think Nadal has finally overcome those 7 straight loses. I believe he has a great chance at Wimbledon, he has two wins there and five overall finals.

I am hoping for a Nadal VS Federer Wimbledon final, those were always competitive and high quality. Do not see Djokovic making the final but I have been wrong before so we will see.

Here's the thing. I think Nadal is the favorite for the final and can't lose to anyone besides Djokovic. Djokovic meanwhile, like at the French, is more vulnerable to losing to a "side character" before the final.

In the final, Djokovic would be the heavy favorite. He proved that with his play against Nadal in the slow ass French final, particularly in the brilliant third set.

I honestly think Nadal winning Wimbledon is very nearly as much of a lock as him winning the French Open was.

He may not even drop a set.

He will get Murray in the semi's, steamroll him as usual, then probably face Federer/Djokovic in the finals - both of who he's a better grass-court player than.

He's clearly the best clay AND grass court player in the world right now (best natural surfaces player).

This is a bold prediction.On grass,he will have to deal with a lot more tight sets then on clay and against a big hitter he will play TB`s and it`s no certainty he will win them all.
Two years ago he played twice 5 setters in first week and last year he had a couple of tight matches with TB`s against Muller or Del Potro.
Sure,he can win at Wimbledon but steamrolling every match with 6-1 or 6-2 sets like at RG it`s not possible at Wimbledon.

I'm confused. Was last year's final not 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 to Djokovic over Nadal?

And Nadal is the best grass court player in the world?

Odd that so many here think the defending champion is not AT LEAST co-favorite, after what he was able to do against Nadal for four sets on the slowest court in the world.

Have you not missed the blindingly obvious - that the momentum of the H2H is clearly in Nadal's favor now. He has 3 straight wins over the Serb, that's almost half of Djokovic's 'monumental' winning streak over Nadal.

Surface has very little to do with the rivalry - it's 100% in the head. All surfaces play nearly the same these days.

Explain why last year Djokovic was taken to 3 sets in Miami and Indian Wells, but beat Rafa in straights on the clay of Madrid and Rome where he should have struggled more?

It's because surface has nothing to do with it - the surfaces are so similar that neither of them needs to alter their game to play on any surface.

Nadal winning WImby without dropping set is science fiction, he will loose few tie-breaks or normal set with break for sure.

He is better grass-courter than Nole, but better on grass than Roger.... He would be favorite vs Roger but not, because he is better on grass...

Disagree with you... surface has a lot to do vs Nadal, Nole knows those losses were on clay - where Nadal is supposed to be favorit, do you honestly believe if they next time meet will be say Cincinatti than Nole will loose, because of his head? he will destroy him on fast HC. Maybe few years back Nole was in head thinking this Rafa is to much - he honestly said it he didn΄t have self-belive, but this Djokovic knows he can beat Nadal and especially he will be confident on non-clay matches, grass is maybe hard to tell, because Nole is clearly worst on grass, but on any HC match i am sure Nole will be confident and his head will be o.k.

How many Wimbledon finals has Djokovic made? Last year he had a great season he was the best and obviously in Nadal's head after having beaten him on clay twice. Djokovic is not a natural on grass and his results prior to Wimbledon 2011 show just that. In fact prior to 2011, Wimbledon was Djokovic's worst slam, having made it passed the 4th round only 3 out of 6 times. Its not 2011 last time I checked. If anything Nadal and Federer are the co favorites even if Federer has not made the final there since 2009, he is always a natural on grass something that Djokovic will never be.

LOLling GIFs aside, yes, Nadal is a lock to win at Wimbledon (both times) over this Summer.
I refrain from commenting on his "prowess" as a player, but his competitiveness clearly outstrips the only two players currently capable of beating him on a semi-big stage.
Federer is too vulnerable to big hitters on any given day, and will likely be blown away by some Berdych or Joe-Willifried type who then typically gets eaten alive by Nadal.
Djokovic went toe-to-toe in 2011 and came out on top, but his level has dropped from that and Nadal's hasn't.
So yeah...

Mark my words.

What will Rafito do if the weather is rainy and the balls low bouncing like in Paris in the final?:unsure: Will he be happy to play under closed roof?
Weatherforecast for London is not looking good for the next days.

4 years has passed since them. Has Nadal gotten better? I don't think so. But others have improved. If you mention 2008 don't forget, that a young and inexperienced Nole was able to take a set by 6:0 against Nadal, before he collapsed.
Nadal and his fans better hope for dry weather, but the forecast is really bad.

Well, I am pissed today to hear Rafa will be carrying the flag for Spain in Olympics. What a disgrace to the games. And no. Rafa won't win the Olympics or Wimbledon.

Rafa 2nd favourite behind Djoker.

The first week is always the big question mark. Courts are faster and Nadal can end up facing a great grass player in the early rounds and potentially lose. He's been pushed 5 sets in week one numerous times (including years he's won).

Should he survive week one, I think he becomes the favorite. No one in the top 10 can beat him on this surface with the lone exception of Djokovic. And I think after the RG final and his three straight wins of Djokovic, Nadal will have the mental edge he needs to win that match (should it come to pass).

And the person that posted Nadal was a lock for Wimbledon and wouldn't drop a set... please tell me you were kidding. I like Nadal, but he is not unstoppable on grass.

Rafa will have a struggle somewhere in the first week. Then the courts lose speed and start to suit him


He may win Wimbledon but I highly doubt he will win the Olympics.

My thought too. I really like Fed for the Olympics this year. I think he will throw everything he has at it. It's the one thing he's missing.

If Federer can't win Wimbledon why in the world would he win the olympics?

guessing that one of the top 3 guys will win it isn't exactly something people are going to go back and be like "WOW, how did you possibly predict that!?" haha. but I think he will too, or Federer. for the last year I've felt like maybe this tournament, WImbledon 2012, would be Federer's swan song, that any this summers Olympics. I think if he manages to win either/or he will retire afterwards despite his recent comments in interviews about staying on tour for a long time to come

Pretty sure Olderer would prefer a 7th Wimbledon to 1st Olympic singles.

uhhhh why do you say that? he has repeatedly stated over and over how important this Olympics is to him, and not repeatedly stated how important a 7th WImbledon is to him..... certainly generally a player would prefer a grand slam over the Olympics, but someone of Roger's caliber? he has accomplished everything in the game EXCEPT for winning the Olympics, trust me, if he had to pick one over the other he'd go with London.

his resume would be entirely filled if he won it. but I really do think the next big event he wins will be his swansong despite his comments of otherwise

i'd love a tsonga wimby final

since tsonga is the only top player right now who plays like a grass court player should

dont know how many more times fed will be at wimby so i think its time to start recording all his matches in HD

I got a doubt, where are the olympics taking place, same venue as Wimby? If so what are they going to do with the worn out grass?

I think both Nadal and Djokovic have multiple slams at multiple venues remaining in their career.

Wait...sorry, i forgot where I was.

EVERYONE SUCKS EXCEPT MY PET PLAYER! HE IS THE BEST EVER AND EVERYONE ELSE'S VICTORIES WERE FLUKES AND THEY WILL SOON BE EXPOSED FOR THE FRAUDS THEY ARE BLEAAARGH BLEAARGH BLEAARGH!

Best of three versus best of five. Fed is no longer the guy he once was. He's now a really good player capable of winning best of three tournaments but falling in best of five. So it makes sense he could win Olympics yet lose at Wimbledon.

YES AND RAFA has improved his serve:worship::worship: even more and dont think chokovice is the biggest threat in wimbly....that must be Fed....the serb doesnt have the serve and nerve and mentality any longer. Rafa owns him from now on.:devil::D:D

So Rafa will win wimbledon how many grand slams have Chokovice?

5 ! How many has Nadal off clay ? 4 . That,s good but Djokovic has 5 ! You can,t push your way to a title on grass ! Justice done by Rosol !
