I mean, on what exactly are these pundits going? Fed's incredible grass streak?
Perhaps Rafa has a mental advantage but Fed DEFINITELY has the edge on grass with him. Just no doubt about it. Though I do think Rafa's closer to winning from Fed on grass than Fed from Rafa on clay. But still, if I were a pundit (
), I would've picked Fed to win Wimbledon. I hope the contrary of course.
Lots of people want Fed to go down badly and hope it will come as soon as possible... Any "on form" player will be their pick to do the job, Djokovic at the beginning of the season, Nadal these days... Roddick will probably be their pick to take him down at the USO
