Never. He'll keep always winning on grass until he's 65.

By then he'll resemble an over 50s at the average tennis club...slicing every single bloody ball and volleying from 3 feet inside the baseline. :scared:

he is not as invincible on grass as people think. not anymore anyway. we simply needed some players with some belief and the game. Nadal nearly took him down last year and Djokovic will do it this year if he gets the chance.

we just need Djokovic in Fed`s 1/2. and while we are at it, lets also give him Karlovic and Nalby.

Oh yeah, I fully believe that if there are the right circumstances, he will go home empty handed at this year's Championships. Personally, I think if he meets Nadal again he will have a very hard job denying him this time.

Wimbledon in QF or SF

to Murray/Roddick/Djokovic

I dont think he would lose in the final against anyone.

i cant wait. this Wimby could be one of the most exciting in years. its finally open. there are others besides Fed who have a shot at it under the right circumstances.

i agree. If Fed does get to the finals and sees Nadal across the net, its no longer a sure thing for him.

Had Halle`s list of players not been so shitty all these past years, he would have lost a long, long time ago imo. I see things ending for him at Wimbledon this year, if not next year.

i respectfully disagree. one of the following players can pull it off:

1. Nalby
2. Djokovic
3. Nadal

most likely: Nadal or Djokovic

I don't know when BUT while it is early days still ..no-one has shown the form to defeat federer yet on grass this year,,,add to that his 0ne-handed BH while a somewhat liability on clay is a MASSIVE weapon on grass..his serve gets value on grass....Add to that he is playing a warm-up on grass ,,unlike last year,playing himself into a form.....
Its not impossible BUT.......

This year at Wimbledon.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with this. When you look at how he's been playing this year, and add the immense pressure of going for 6 straight, I just get the feeling it will be way to much pressure. Although, he's still got two pretty tough matches this week too.

Man, I'd really like to see a strong performance tomorrow just to get that confidence level back up..

Nadal wil win Wimbledon this year, so i guess that means he'll lose at some point!

GlennMirnyi
06-14-2008, 12:48 AM
Bullshit.

Nadal was losing to Seppi indoors before the blue clay/clay season started. Now he's the best thing since sliced bread again. Every year it's the same, it's about time people get the clue that the mud season is too weak.

Perhaps Nadal's best ever chance to win it was last year and those bps in the 5th set.

Will he get to another final again? He certainly could.

He's about the only guy I think is capable of actually ending this run, at the moment.

Fakervic will go down in straights.
Fat Dave is cachalot.
Roddick would get bitched as usual.

There's no one else besides Nadal, imho, who can take his record away.

He would not lose in the Final, YES you right

But I don't think Murray. Djok and Roddick have better chance, but still very tough to play Fed on Grass. He is the king there

He got to win tommorrow to prove something.

Then take down DJOK in the Final.

If he does beat Roddick and Rjok next two match, maybe he got best chance to come out

61. Fed will lose to Tipsy in 3rd Wimbledon. If Tipsy go out in 1rd then Fed will end with 64 by losing SF to Djoke!

Curious. Next year is after this year, so you should have to reverse time if the streak doesn´t end next year.:devil::devil::devil:

And leave Sampras as the "King of Grass?"

JediFed
06-14-2008, 04:37 AM
Sampras has the two career marks:

1. most number of wimbledon-7
2. most number of tournaments won on grass-10

Federer has one mark outright:

1. longest winning streak on grass-currently at 57
2. most consecutive wimbledon championships-currently at 5.

Borg has one mark outright and one shared:

1. most consecutive wimbledon wins--41
2. most consecutive wimbledon championships--5.

If Federer wins Halle and Wimbledon this year, it will change, so that Federer owns 3 records outright and ties for most consecutive wins at wimbledon. Then you can call him the all-time king of grass. :)

I agree on that but Federer's road to the RG final is a whole lot easier as compared to Nadal's road to the Wimbledon final and moreover Nadal is not guaranteed to be in the Wimbledon final again this year (if he draw's Djokovic he will be beaten in the semis). :D

:hatoff: it seems you stayed away from GM for too long :) the one who's gonna grab Queen's this year will be the next King of grass and will send the ego king home for good. Tennis will be alive again...

Ideally, if you wanted Federer to lose at Wimbledon, giving him Djoke will not do much. He'll lose in straight sets.

Djokovic isn't going to do a damn thing to him on grass :ras:
he may not be as invincible this year, but when he walks out onto
that Wimbledon center court (how ridiculous his backward pants looked :retard:);
he still owns it... and until somebody (like Nadal :angel:)prove otherwise...
he's still pretty much the man to beat on this surface...

Nadal isn't going to do shit. Federer will bagel his ass while playing his C game like he did in the 2006 final.
Djokovic poses some threat but he would have to play extraordinary to beat Federer.
