    This dude they are playing is a fucking giant. Serena had a killer passing shot on him to win the first set.

    If I'm remembering correctly, RBA has two wins over Novak this season. So, RBA-Pella going to be worth keeping an eye on.

    Goffin was up a break, but couldn't hold it. Novak takes it 6-4.

    What’s everyone thinking for Federer vs Nadal tomorrow? I tend to be pessimistic about Nadal’s chances against Federer and Djokovic on non-clay surfaces. Kind of hard to get the AO final out of my head. I think Federer wins comfortably in four.

    Both are playing great. I think we see Federer Djokovic final and Djokovic wins the final.

    I think its seriously a toss up, im just giving Fed a slight advantage cause of the surface. But i could see Nadal winning this match (which as you know, is tough for me to say)

    Both are playing exceptional

    CC_Nole Well-Known Member

    I would agree with you; however, I thought the same thing going into the AO final lol. Nadal didn’t drop a set going into the final and then got rolled easily. Although, last years semi against Djokovic does give me some hope. I’m curious to see who has more nerves starting the match.

    As slow as the grass is, I tend to think it’s close to a 50/50 match. Actually lean toward Rafa.

    I just dont get why Wimbledon would want to slow the grass down. Actually bothers me more than it should, and i would say that if roger was in the tournament or not.

    Wimbledon is supposed to stand out, not regress back to the mean. Stunning

    I swear this isn’t just because I’m a Nadal fan but I don’t mind the slower court speed. I kind of despise serve and volley tennis and hate when the serve bots can just ace their way far into the tournament. I’m sure there is a happy medium though.
