Wimbledon finals weekend

Federer serves

Wimbledon 2014 finals weekend is upon us. Another fantastic championships comes to a climax this weekend.

In the women’s final the new kid on the block Genie Bouchard takes on the big hitting left hander Petra Kvitova. Having watched Genie’s interview after her semi final makes me think she will overcome the raw power of Petra. The youngster seems to have an aura and belief about her that I have not seen since a young Serena Williams! However if Petra serves well who knows! Tweener prediction Genie in 3 tight sets!

Sunday’s men’s final sees our pick for the tournament the Swiss maestro Roger Federer take on The Serbinator Novak Djokovic. The reason I picked Roger this year is, ¬†when courtside against Giles Muller, I noticed the Swiss star was consistently serving around 120-128 mph. The previous time I saw him live he was using the smaller headed racket and was averaging 110-118 mph. This combined with more clever ventures to the net (Edberg’s influence?) will see him over the line. I am sure Djokovic will have something to say about the above. Tweener predicts Roger in 4 sets.

Enjoy the finals, I know I will.
