It's not really about that but Fed's serve is working much better when roof is closed. Awesome machine.

i believe fed will win, he`ll do his thing, maybe not as good as friday, but close. the key is murray`s mental status, he knows he`s close to history for UK, and he may chicken out a bit, wouldn`t be the first time..

but enough with that, same odds on dutra da silva vs polansky, and there is a bigger difference between the players imo, so dutra @ 1.50 is worth it just like fed, maybe more.

flat serve, less air resistance, seems pretty logic to me

that wasn't the question. the point was that I said Fed is one of the best in the world and he said "no its not really about that".

I think Andy has always played relatively well at Wimby. I'd say his SF loss in 2008 was the only lost match he should've won. and he hasn't been playing badly this year. Roger is playing well, too, be we must remember this isn't anymore the pre-08 JesusFed. And we don't know how the home crowd affects to Andy. At least he can't play much worse than in his previous slam finals, but maybe home crowd gives him the right spirit. Anyway, I'd say Roger is about 60:40 favourite. And my bet is Murray @ 2.75.

Decisions, decisions...

oh well...

over 3.5 sets @ 1.40

win

time to enjoy the rest of the match

But final is another day, another opponent, I doubt if Fed can play this flawless game again.IMO, we have same problem what we had in SF - favorite is underpriced. 1.5 is price which would be juicy in 2006 Wimby final against any opposition, now we have 2012 ...it looks kinda short.Basically we have simple question : which Fed shows up - Serverer, Olderer or Shankerer ? I dont know.

I know every person with sane mind stays out of it, but I´m not sane, most of us here are addicts. So here we go :

Murray over Federer @2.7

Murka- Fed 4 sets @2.55

GL
Loss
Win
At least won little money...

If Federer loses you know he'll be heavily doubting his chances to nail #17 down. I'm sure he still believes in his mind that he's just as capable of winning the USO, the AO and Wimby as Nadal and Nole (as well he should), but Federer hasn't won a slam since his 2010 title in Melbourne which was 30 months ago, the longest drought of his career.

This isn't playing Nadal in Paris. He's favored against a guy he's never dropped a set to in a Grand Slam final. If Roger loses this, its going to have a negative long term impact on his psyche.

For Murray, the ramifications are obvious. Its very comparable to the pressure LeBron has faced the last 2 years. When James bowed out last year against Dallas, he bounced back better than ever. I don't see that with Murray, if he bites the bullet, it may be a long, painful recovery.

This to me is probably the most highly anticipated slam in recent times because it pits the greatest player ever going for his first in 30 months and potentially his last ever (although I genuinely believe Federer will play till hes 35. He'll be top 5-10 till then and still be a contender at slams) with a guy who's slam-less and is going for #1 at Wimbledon of all places.

If you can't get up for this you shouldn't watch sports.

At the end though, Federer is back to his ethereal level he showed in Dubai and Rotterdam. When Roger Federer has 10 UE in a 4 set match against Djokovic (he had 62 in 3 sets just 3 weeks ago at RG against Nole), you know hes playing electrifying tennis.

Murray folded against the pressure in 2010 at Melbourne. Now, the pressure is multiplied by 10000000x and Federer is playing better tennis. Only one winner here.

Roger Federer to win Wimbledon over Muzza @ 1.53
W

What an effort, just classic perfect Federer.

Muzza played as well as he could the first 2 sets and was only tied at 1 set apiece.

Federer was consistent throughout all 4 sets and just wore on Murray.

it was all to do with the roof closing, Federer was too hot and cold in the first 2 sets...after that he was almost unplayable.
