I think roger is going down this year! He'll make the semis but if you can take a set from him he gets really tired. The only reason he beat roddick last year was because it rained in the middle of the match.

That can't be the reason why Roddick lost. I saw the game. Federer clearly outplayed Roddick.

roddick had him a set down and in the second there were no breaks! Roger than after the rain just turned it up a knoch like sampras used to do!

Still i think if he loses a set e's gonna go down.

he played safin and nadal and those matches were 3-4 hrs each he got really tired. If hewitt can grind with him a little bit he'll a great chance.

If i asked you if sampras came back just for Wimbledon how do you think he'll fare?

Awesome Federer today won while playing nowhere near his best against a man ranked number four in the world who possesses the fastest serve on the planet.

He is just tyoo godd *sigh*.

I was so frustrated when he played Hewitt n the semis. Hewitt started to play well in the final set when he was mixing it up a bit (like serve-volleying, and going for the lines more), but it was too late...

I think the only two guys who can beat Federer are Safin and Hewitt - Roddick poses no threat at all, I'm afraid.

Federer totally dominated this trounament! And only became the third man in history to win 'The Wimbledon Championship' three times in-a-row.

Awesome Federer! Comparisons with B Borg are not out of line either. Considering the quality of oppoonents he has faced, it seems that he is on way to pass Borg's 41 wins on grass in a row. Expected a more close final though. The Johanson- Roddick match was good though.

The two best matches is the tournament were the womens final and Niemenen v Henman and I was disappointed with the lack of mens matches going the distance. The thing with Federer is that he's still young. If he can go on to play as long as Andre Agassi then we could see the greatest tennis player of all time.

Wath out for Hewitt. He just came back from injury, so didn't get a lot of match practice before Wimbledon and still managed to reach the semis. If he was seeded 2, then he may well have beaten Roddick and lost to Federer in the final.

I predict Hewitt will find some form before US open and defeat Federer in the final or semi-final...

Hewitt probably will never beat Federer ever again (assuming Federer stays healthy). Federer has won against Hewitt the last 8 times. All in straight sets. That's 15 consecutive sets Hewitt has lost to Federer. He lost four of those sets at 6-0, a royal spanking, an ignominy that even Roddick hasn't experienced.

Hewitt, along with Roddick, is officially Federer's biatch.
