The sun has set on what has been a scorching first week both on and off court at Wimbledon.This time last year, Nadal was struggling with a wrist injury and Federer was showing signs of age.The pair have looked slightly less impressive than Federer and Nadal during week one but as week two arrives, it's difficult to predict who will bring out his best tennis during the biggest moments.Murray should survive that encounter but I can't see him hoisting the trophy Sunday unless swift improvements are made.They say tennis is a confidence game and Nadal seems to think so too. In the past few years, Nadal has been extremely upset prone at Wimbledon, particularly when coming up against big serving, go-for-broke type players.Federer's serve has looked as reliable as ever this year but his backhand has left the tennis world stunned.Federer looks a different beast this year though, so expect him to come through that unharmed and navigate a semifinal battle with Novak.
