Whether or not good grass late in the tournament will help Roger depends on the opposition, I think.

Against Djokovic I expect it will help. Same if he should meet Ferrer or Del Potro (not that he needs help against these two).
Against Murray I don't think it will matter one way or another.
Against Tsonga or Berdych (or Roddick) I think it will more likely help the opponent.

You seem confused about how bookies operate.

If more money is played on Djokovic to win, he will have lower odds. The bookies do not try make a killing by guessing the right winner. They try to position themselves so that they will get a small slice of the action no matter who wins.

You completely fail at jinxes, just like your favourite fails at winning slams.

Nole is the favourite, no? He holds two slams, no? For sure Roger can't be favourite, no?

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Roger has the edge over Djokovic on grass.

The only flaw in that assertion is that Tomic does not care for mickey mouse tournaments.

Novak Djokovic is the favorite, with Federer very close behind him.

How so? With the surface, h2h and recent meeting considered?
