Another massive case of "don't count your chickens until they hatch"

And a tasty case it is, indeed.

Guess bookies were right. Let's see if Fedmaster can bring it home.

Re: Federer vs Djokovic. Who is the favourite for the Olympics?

Don't underestimate Djokovic. He still has the potential and showed how he can beat Federer on hard and clay courts. I am still curious how the semi final would turn out to be if it had been played open air. Don't underestimate Murray either. He is still evolving I believe.
Even though Lendl annoys me with his never changing view and charismatic looks, he might have an impact on MUrray. I read some of his interviews, he is a very straight and rigorous guy, who knows the game. I hope they have a healthy bond and they sort things out after the Wimbledon final.

If the final will be on clay after one week of play, then how come the semis of Wimbledon didn't end up with a Djoker win?

Re: Federer vs Djokovic. Who is the favourite for the Olympics?

Didn't realize the final was best of 5. Should they meet, I still stand that Federer certainly has more of an advantage than Djokovic does, but best of 5 does make things a little interesting.. We all know in best of 3 set matches with Federer has become very tough as of late all because of his serve. I mean once he has any type of lead, it really feels like he runs away with the match. However, we will see as both could easily get knocked out early.

He would certainly have the technical ability to do it. But executing against a new type of play is something different. In 2006 Federer had never played someone like a Djokovic 2011, and Djokovic 2011 knows weak parts of a 2006 Federer game.

You are stating it as a certainty, but who knows. If Nadal was younger and started dominating clay in 2009 in stead of 2005. Federer would have dominated clay for years and then you would probably say 2006 federer would wreck 2010 Nadal on clay he is a little old now.

And yes Fed2006 is more impressive than Nole2011

Djokovic has fallen quite a bit from his 2011 level and his current level might not be enough to even beat murray, let alone the king of grass.

And even then I'd give the edge to the 4 time AO champion.

besides 2006 Federer was amazing, but tactically the game at the very top has changed a little over the years. If you move Federer out of 2006 directly against Djokovic 2011 without letting him adjust to the new game I'am afraid he will lose.

I'm afraid you're wrong. Very wrong.
