I agree with the 1st guy: Rafa first, Federer possibly not at all. Rafa is improving on grass faster, and could even have a chance this year.

Nadal can win Wimbledon only if Federer doesn't play at his level.
And I find strange that someone who has such a weak volley can make it to the final...but grass is much slower than before apparently.
I would be very disppointed if Nadal were to win Wimbly because his game his always the same, and it also works on grass.

His volley is pretty good: he has great touch up at the net, although he doesn't have much variety, he is pretty effective with his drop-volleys.

Lol, no, he comes to the net only to finish the point, so he usually has to make very easy volleys. Ok, his drop volleys are not so bad, but his "normal" volleys are not good at all. He also has good reflexes...

Federer missed his chance. Now it's Nadals turn.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

Someone else said it well, Fed would have to be somewhat off for Nadal to win!   ;-()

Me too OSU.  Forget about French for a minute, I really hope Fed turns it up and proves to everybody that he has no challenge on grass yet again.

Yeah, I have to agree with you here!   I really can't stand even the thought that Rafa could beat Fed to win the big W!?   :-o

Yeah, Nadal is doing a lot better on grass, and even took Roger to 5 sets in the final, so will probably beat Roger to it.
