Wimbledon - (Rioters): "I'll kick Nadal's puny ass in three straight sets tomorrow!" Roger Federer has told the press after a confident 7-5 6-3 6-4 semi-finals win against Frenchman Richard Gasquet.
"I saw Nadal today in the locker room and I just know he's shitting himself at the thought of getting thrashed on Center Court tomorrow.
"Sure, I might let him win a couple of games tomorrow, just to stretch out the agony a bit.
"Sponsors like a bit of angst but the crowds have all paid good money to see my Finals masterclass in obliterating the opposition."
Federer is seeking to emulate Bjorn Borg's record of winning five straight Wimbledon titles and says he always thrashes Nadal on grass:
"It's almost a kind of hobby with me.
"Sure I've let him win on clay in France, why ever not?
"Makes him over-confident for the big game in Wimbledon and keeps the bookies happy too.
"My prediction for tomorrow? 6-4, 6-4, 6-0!"
