I would tip Fed at AO. I believe Fed can win against Nadal on clay.
It would be much easier than Nadal taking Fed out on grass. There is a
winning formula a for Fed at FO--he needs to find it and execute. For
Nadal at Wimbledon, it is hopeless.

He's not only bulky, but tall for a scrapper too. The combo will prove
his undoing. The knee stress at 19 is a very bad sign for him.

Bullshit. For someone 19 years old or a Boris-type power player,
maybe, but not a scrapper. I want to see what he's doing at age 23. I
don't see him ever becoming the type of player who can use his size to
blow holes through people.

Its what sets apart guys like Lubie from the greater players. Closing
the deal. I like Lube's game pretty well, so I hope he learned
something in that loss. The line call against in the 5th set
tie-breaker didn't help.
