re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

Roger/Murray is something very, very fresh for a Grand Slam finale, and it will be a great match, I'm sure. Hopefully Roger squashes him, though.

In both cases this was the two best players in the world (and 3 of the best ever) all playing at their peak and absolutely pummelling each other.

Fed/Roddick is a great shout though, would be in my top 5.
It wasn't the best match in terms of pure, technical tennis quality (hence why I said "greatest", not "best"), but it was something amazing, something big and grandioze, especially with Goran's background with 3 lost finals (Sampras x2 and Andre), the fact that he was an etternal underdog beloved by Wimbledon crowds and people knew what Wimbledon meant to him, the fact that he was dog's shit at the time, and yet somehow managed to play a perfect tournament, and especially after he defeated Henman in epic war in semis, God it was an awesome watch. Not to mention, it was arguably the hottest crowd ever for a tennis match, I mean they were going BALLISTIC for both guys, because Pat was insanely popular too.

The tennis quality was top notch too, Pat's net game was something beautiful, Goran was one handy motherfucker too, and the drama was unbelievable. I will use a wrestling term here, and say it was a perfect, cinematic storytelling, and it was fucking special for us Croats.

Murray may have had the crowd behind him, but he didn't get a man shout "I love you" to him like Roger did earlier

Honest answer, probably still Tim.

Serious answer, James Ward I think but nobody of note.

ZJack, if Djokovic was a dislikeable person you'd still support him because he's representing your country. Same with Murray. If he was Spanish for example then I doubt anyone in Britain would be supporting him, but he's our only hope. The Fred Perry thing makes it easier to support him too because it makes us seem slightly less laughable at Tennis and we can something to cheer about for a bit until the Olympics.

The reaction for the Final should be interesting because Federer has god like status at Wimbledon and everyone loves him.

Also Serena's playing the doubles final as well tomorrow. On the sam day. Beast.

Probably the best way to describe her. . . he. . . it, whatever.

As the Murray thing, I don't have any strong feelings for & against him but I'm in the minority. Most of my mates can't stand him, my brother & mum can't either. My dad's like me in we'll support him because he's British but we don't particularly like him. He doesn't come across as a likeable character like Tsonga, Federer & Nadal do for example. I can see why people don't like him, and I admit the anti-England thing did cause me to dislike him all those years ago but that's passed. Unfortunately it hasn't with a lot of people.

re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

Imagine the pressure he will be put under to win. This is his fourth final and he has yet to win.

Djokovic is not likeable at all. Well that is my opinion. I never liked him.

I dont hate nor like Murray. I really dont care much about him. I really like Tsonga. It is impossible to hate him. It is a shame he did not win but I guess it is better for Federer. Tsonga would have been a harder opponent for Federer.

The GOAT will crush Murray in straight sets in the final.

I am expecting Serena to beat Radwanska and win her 5th Wimbledon.

Rooting for Fed, this gunna be good. British fans should be even more excited for Jonny Marray, wild card entrant beating Bryan Bros....top stuff. All in all an epic tournament, had everything. Rosol v Nadal will never be forgotten. Roam on journeyman.
