Rafael Nadal made a perfect tour at Wimbledon. He gave up just one set in the five matches so far, before Nick Kyrgios. It is only for the second time that the Spaniard manages such a performance at the All England Club. The last time this happened was 2008, the year Nadal defeated Federer in the final.That match was said to have been one of the most beautiful of all time. It was so intense that a book was written about him and a documentary was made. Nadal then needed 4 hours and 48 minutes to defeat Federer at the end of five long sets, the last of which was won by Spanish 9-7. “It was probably the hardest career defeat,” Federer said after that final.From the first game between Nadal and Federer have been over 15 years, but both players are still in the top and are just waiting to meet on the field. “I’m anxious to play again against him. Always say the same thing, that the opportunities to have it as an opponent are falling as the years pass, but here we are still here, “said Nadal before the Wimbledon semifinal.Of the 39 direct matches so far, Nadal has won 24 and Federer 15.
Roger Federer won the 100th victory at Wimbledon in the quarterfinals against Kei Nishikori. As expected, the Swiss made an almost perfect tournament, with just two sets lost in the matches so far, one in front of Lloyd George Harris and the other before Nishikori.Eight times Wimbledon champion, the last time in 2017, Federer feels best on grass at the All England Club. Outside the finals lost in 2008, the Swiss defeated Nadal in the other two matches played in the London tournament in the 2006 and 2007 finals. However, he had never had easy missions to the Spanish.The last direct encounter between the two big players was in the semi-finals at Roland Garros last month, where Nadal won 3-0 in sets, on his favorite surface – the clay – at his favorite Grand Slam. Now, Federer has the chance of revenge on his “territory,” but the Swiss does not see things that way.”It does not matter the surface. Who cares about her? It’s about how he played so far and how I evolved. I hope the game goes to my favor, but I know it will be hard. Rafa can win against anyone on any surface. He’s really good, he’s not just a slag specialist, “Federer prefigured the semifinal with Nadal.
