Breakfast at Wimbledon

The men's Wimbledon Final is taking place right now between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Nadal is currently up two sets to love (6, 4; 6, 4).

I'm not that all into tennis, but I do know that Nadal is in complete control and hitting some great shots. He's been getting to some hard returns by Federer (he hit one turned around on his backhand) and his defensive play has been amazing. If he can control the tempo of the match (which he has been doing) then he has a very good chance to knock the 5-time champ Federer.

As for Roger, the problem for him has been his shot accuracy, making a lot of un-Federer like shots that miss long and to the side. He just needs to get back to playing the same type of dominating tennis he played in the earlier rounds.

I think that Federer takes one set from Nadal. Nadal wins and breaks Federer's run at Wimbledon.
