It looks like Roger Federer is going to win the 2008 Wimbledon tennis tournament. This will be his sixth win and he’ll be able to keep Rafael Nadal from winning. Nadal won this year’s French Open and the French Open is the only Grand Slam tournament that Federer has not won. This is especially ironic because Federer grew up playing on the clay courts in Switzerland.
Nadal has been ranked number two longer than any player in history, as far as I know, and he would like nothing more than to bump Federer out of the coveted first ranked chair. I don’t think it will happen this season but Federer is aging and he will have to retire sometime. I know he wants to win the French Open so he has no regrets but I want him to retire while on top. If he keeps playing he might end up slipping and then he’ll go out in a whimper and not a bang.
