    Federer. There's very little question. He came damn close on clay on one or two occasions against Nadal, and unless he has the worst day of his life, the surface dominance will win out. I would like Nadal to win, though.

    Me too. I want Nadal to win. But Federer can probably play at 75% on grass and still eek out a win over Nadal.

    Oh, for some reason I thought this was about Federline. I was like "who's he fighting?"

    On grass, Federer will walk it.

    Federer. There's something of the devil in Nadal.

    Federer, even though Nadal's had his number for a while now.

    yea, interestingly Nadal is 6-1 head to head against Federer, with many of those wins coming in the last year.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Nadal won. There is so much pressure on Federer to show the world that he can beat Nadal, given that he's 1-6 vs him. Nadal's looking confident (no one expected him to make it this far on grass) and my money's on him. Can't wait for the match tomorrow...

    From what I can tell, it's a contest to see who can grunt louder. IF I watch, the tv is on mute.
