Roger Federer: What Twitter Is Saying About Federer's Wimbledon Chances
But conventional wisdom doesn't really apply on Twitter, does it?
For you, the interested tennis fan, I've scoured the Twitterverse to find what is being said about Federer heading into the famous tournament.
It could be an epic tournament for Fed-Ex. As the Roland Garros Twitter account notes, Federer can regain the top ranking if—and it's a big IF—he can take the Wimbledon title.
I don't know, Roland Garros Twitter account. I just don't know. One person who believes he will, however, is Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim:
Wimbledon seed report. Spoiler alert: I'm taking Federer, against all logic: bit.ly/MMJehi— Jon Wertheim (@jon_wertheim) June 23, 2012
And as Christopher Clarey of The New York Times notes, Federer deservedly remains a tournament favorite:
He notes in his piece that both John McEnroe and Darren Cahill are picking Federer to win, so at least a few prominent names in the tennis world think the answer to Clarey's question is "true." I wouldn't bet against Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal meeting in the final, but that's just me.
Grantland's Brian Phillips had an opinion about Roger Federer's shoes. It has absolutely nothing to do with his Wimbledon chances, but it made me laugh so it gets included:
It's impossible to describe how white Federer's Nikes are in person. They are not made out of normal materials. I'm guessing unicorn skin.— Brian Phillips (@runofplay) June 25, 2012
Obviously it's unicorn skin.
ESPN Stats and Info has some quality info about Federer after his first round win.
Roger Federer wins 60th match at Wimbledon (4th player to reach 60 in Open Era). 3 games lost are his fewest in 1st round in Wimbl. career— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) June 25, 2012
After all these years, he's only lost a small step. If we weren't in a golden age at the top of the rankings with Djokovic and Nadal, Federer would have a few more Grand Slams in his legendary career.
Unfortunately for Fed-Ex, I don't think he'll break through at Wimbledon. I'm going with Nadal over Djokovic in the final. But Federer will give the Djoker everything he can handle in the semifinals, that much I know.
Hit me up on Twitter—my tweets hit the mark more often than Spain's passing.
