Default Another Nadal/Federer Winbledon final on the way

Wow, this is just the best rivalry right now in sports.

Federer will probably take it, but I think Nadal is more prepared than ever to challenge him.

Nadal took him to 5 sets last year and a year ago Fed looked a lot more unstoppable, after losing at the Australian to Djokoasshole and being humiliated in the French final, as well as Nadal winning Queens last week, before the tournament I would've picked Nadal

But Fed's looked possessed the last couple rounds, and stastically this has been one of his most dominant tournaments ever (hasn't lost a set).

I wouldn't be shocked with either extreme, Fed in straight sets or Nadal winning outright (I can't see Nadal in straight sets).

I'll take Fed

Dammit. I haven't yet watched the semis and this was the first thing I saw when I logged on.

Oh well. Nadal all the way. I know Fed has looked scary over the past 2 weeks but Nadal has looked just as frightening to me. And the win at Queen's is sure to give his confidence a huge boost. I think this is his year to win it ... not saying that Fed's looking sluggish by any means, but Rafa has the confidence and the momentum going into the finals ... he might, and probably will, get nervous, but I see him winning it.

GO RAFA!

I'm not a big fan of Nadal. So if he loses, I will be happy, no check that, ecstatic.

I am, and will always be fan of Federer. Yet, I really enjoyed the beating Nadal inflicted upon him in the French Open. I did so for two main reasons. First, I enjoyed watching Nadal's display of talent on clay. Second, such a beating can only make Roger a better player. In other words, it will force him to look for ways to improve not only his clay game, but also his all-around game. He will have to do so if he wants to remain at the top. With respect to Wimbledon, I give the edge to Federer. Other than the chance to win six Wimbledons in row, against Nadal he will enter the match with only one thing on his mind; and that is revenge.

It will be an amazing match either way. I really enjoyed watching the Williams sisters battle it out this morning.

This is by far the most entertaining tennis match in a long time. Both guys are absolutes beasts. And Federer coming back from being down 2-0 in sets to tying it up. Wow.

Officially the longest Wimbledon Championship match. And definitely one of the more memorable. This is absolutely nuts.

I love Federer, and I always will. Disappointing loss for him. After coming back down 2 sets. And coming back 5-2 in the 3rd set. Congrats to Nadal though. The kids got a lot of talent.

That was simply unbelievable. I've been around for a long time and I just don't know what compares to that. Ali-Foreman maybe. I remember last year I was sorry to see the match end. This time I didn't think it would. Everyone reduced to tears. Wow.

And Bel - you'd better become the greatest ever player of Guitar Hero or something, or you're going to feel like an underachiever these days.

A couple years ago, Roger said the day would come when Nadal and his capris would surpass him. I don't know if it's happened yet, but the tide's definitely turning.
