Make your prediction.

I say 2. One to Nadal in the finals. The other........perhaps it will be to Monfils or Guccione.

The question is "how many sets will Rog lose" not "will Roger be champ". Just tell me how many sets total he will lose. Thanks.

Federer's past results:

2003 - lost 1 set
(Fish; 3rd round; 3rd set; 6-4)

2004 - lost 2 sets
(Hewitt; Quarters; 2nd set; 7-6)
(Roddick; Finals; 1st set; 6-4)

2005 - lost 1 set
(Kiefer; 3rd round; 2nd set; 7-6)

2006 - lost 1 set
(Nadal; Finals; 3rd set; 7-6)

2007 - lost 3 sets
(Ferrero; Quarters; 2nd set; 6-3)
(Nadal; Finals; 2nd set; 6-4)
(Nadal; Finals; 4th set; 6-2)

2008 - ??

CD, just out of interest: Why can't you tolerate the opinions of other's? You spread whole GM each day with your threads and posts and want the people to agree with you, but when someone has another opinion you have a go on them.

If you want the people to respect you you should maybe learn to respect your fellow MTF users as well :)

i have no beef with anyone that is fair, objective, and reasonable.

i only have problems with people who are out to attack me or those with personal agendas rather than engaging in honest discussions about tennis.

I'm going out on a limb here, Federer will take Wimby in straight sets. Demolishing Djoker and Nadal with the GREATEST of ease!

I hope He lose to Djok in Semi Final (6-4 6-7 6-3 5-7 6-2 Djok wins)

and possible lose two more sets before Semi (one to Monfils and one to Gonz/Robby)

if you want to beat Roger Federer, you got to take first set, that's huge in the game

otherwise, nothing works after you lose 1st set

Maybe but highly unlikely ..In the MC match ,,Novak had been beating everyone(granted they were not good clay courter). before roger.
BUT my point is he commented "when you play the #1 of the world" you are going to have a lot of rallying "
ADD to that fed's BH is not a liability on grass b/c the ball keeps low & is fast.. The rallying will be LONG.
Novak is strong off both wings but other factors play a large part on a grass court.SLICE,VOLLEYS,OVERHEADS etc.

I would say 1 in the quarterfinal and 1 or maybe 2 in the final so that makes 2/3 sets this tourney.

R1: Federer def. Hrbaty; 6-3; 6-2; 6-2

R2: Federer def. Soderling; 6-3; 6-4; 7-6(3)

R3: Federer def. Gicquel; 6-3; 6-3; 6-1

R4: Federer def. Hewitt; 7-6(7); 6-2; 6-4

Qtrs: Federer vs. Ancic; ??????


I really can't see Fed dropping a set to Ancic. He could drop a set to Safin (if Safin is on fire). I don't think he will drop one to Lopez.

I am sure he is aching to beat Nadal in straights in the final. He might even do it. But, Nadal is playing great tennis himself. I think he will probably drop a set to Nadal in the final.

It could easily happen that Fed drops 0 sets.

I said 2, but I think 1 set is most likely now.

We'll see.

I would be disappointed surprised if he does not drop a single set, if not in the quarters or semis, he'll probably drop one in the finals.

But if drops 0, then more respect to him. Winning Wimbledon in a year where you're struggling without dropping a set would be amazing indeed, even by Federer standards.
