Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have played more sets than they are used to at Wimbledon. Federer played five sets in his opening match against Columbian Alejandro Falla and four sets in his second round matchup with Serbian Ilja Bozoljac. He has gone back to his old dominating ways since, and beat Frenchman Arnaud Clement and Austrian Juergen Melzer in straight sets.

Match length has suddenly become an issue of concern for Wimbledon bettors. Roger Federer played a draining five set match in his opener, and had to come from way behind to win it. His second rounder was only slightly easier – he won in a tie-breaker in the fourth set in a very spirited match. Federer’s efforts pale in comparison to the ridiculously epic contest between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut – the fifth set in that one is longer than any other whole match in Wimbledon history, but it’s still a lot of wear and tear on a player in the first couple of rounds.

Even if it weren’t for that bias, though, I would struggle to find a lot of logic in the arguments that Federer shouldn’t be considered the heavy favorite when Wimbledon kicks off on Monday. Here’s a look at the major arguments that people are making against Federer, and why I am just not buying them.

The French Open quarterfinals are covered on ESPN3.com. The men’s and women’s singles and doubles for Tuesday begin at 5AM ET.

Novak Djokovic beat the last standing American on the men’s side, Robby Ginepri in four sets. Ginepri couldn’t keep his footing chasing down a shot from Djokovic. He fell on his face and to the enlightenment of the crowd and his opponent chose to do a couple push ups while he lay facing the red clay colored tennis court. At this point the momentum shifted to Djokovic even though Ginepri was quoted after the match saying he thought his antics would help get the crowd back on his side.
