Wimbledon 11'

Postby Devil's Arcade on Mon Jun 20, 2011 5:49 pm

So, who is going to be watching these two weeks of awesomeness? I love Tennis grand slams!
I think Federer or Djokovic will win it this year, but as always - want Murray to.

Nadal will win....the only way Federer will win it is if he doesn't have to face the Spaniard. Nadal owns Federer right now.

Nadal has been having the better of him lately, yes - but I just have the feeling that Federer is going to come back too strong in this years Wimbledon.

I want Nadal to win, but federer proved that he is still a great champion by playing very well in Paris. Wimbledon is Federers playground, so you can never rule him out. Djokivic, I dont know what he will do. Different grounds, different game. But there could be another Djokovic/Federer clash in the semis.

As long as Murray don't win, I'm happy. As always, rooting for Federer or Roddick.

You are quite right in that regard. Federer playing so well against Nadal on clay definitely bodes well for his chances against Nadal at Wimbledon. Let me just say this, though...Nadal has won the last two Wimbledon's that he's entered. After finally beating Federer in London in 2008, he missed 2009 with the knee injury and then won again last year. I think that Nadal is in the true prime of his career right now. I think that he will win the next 3-4 French Opens and 4-5 of the other Slams in that period. I think Nadal will pass Federer on the Most Slams list. I am personally hoping for a Nadal/Federer final here with Nadal winning a 5 set masterpiece. I really, really love watching these two play each other.

Here's hoping for a Nadal/Federer men's final and a Venus/Serena women's final!!!

There's never been a good William's sister final, for me anyway, it's always boring.
I don't watch the woman's tennis but - all of them screaming each time they hit a shot really gets on my nerves!

That's a good point, actually. Thinking back to the last few that I've seen...Serena has been pretty dominant, but she is coming off the long layoff. Who knows. The screaming gets on my nerves, too. It's like every match on the women's side has at least one of the women screaming.... :cursing:

Schiavones "AH-HIIIII!!!" is the worst.
I dont want any of the Williams sisters in the final. Those are the worst finals. I want Sharapova to win.

I wouldn't mind seeing Serena Williams play Sharapova in the final.

i want sharapova as well...it'd be nice for her to win i suppose... :D

ahem...dont really follow the women tennis as much...only really watch tennis around this time of year surprisingly enough...although id agree that a williams sisters final would suck balls...

id love for murray to win, alas nadal , federer & Djokovic are just a wee bit better...if murrays not going to win it, then id want federer to...all these women salivating over nadal makes me want him to lose...funny that...
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

Anyone watching Sharapova V Robson?

I really hope Robson wins! She was unlucky on the first set. 7-6.

Sharapova is lookin' fine as always ;)

Ugh, Im so sick of the BBC commentary, especialy during this game, talk about arse kissing to brits.
Anyway, I want Sharapova to win Wimbledon, so I want her to win this game. Second set is going much better :thumbsup:

edit: second set was looking better :(
edit: hoorah :thumbsup:

I'm watching on ESPN, so I'm not hearing the BBC commentary, so I don't have to hear the "arse kissing". :lol:

Andy Roddick is out again...but let's be honest, he doesn't stand a chance with the group of men that he's playing against. But, to give him some credit, Andy has provided some great play at Wimbledon. His 2009 match against Roger Federer was one of the greatest matches I've ever seen.

The best matches I've seen at Wimbledon in the last decade:

2009: Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick 5–7, 7–6(6), 7–6(5), 3–6, 16–14
2008: Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer 6–4, 6-4, 6–7(5), 6–7(8), 9-7
2007: Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal 7–6(7), 4–6, 7–6(3), 2–6, 6–2

Last year broke up a string of great Wimbledon finals. Here's hoping that this year's final gets back to classic level. :thumbsup:
