Has anybody been watching it this year? So far, the usual suspects have been moving forward...Roddick and Federer, etc.

Seems like the big news today however is technological. Wimbledon now has a roof for rainy days.

I saw that. Sounds like a good idea. Only 5 of the last 130 years have been rain free.

Looks like the Men's Quarterfinals will prove interesting today with these men battling for a semi-final spot:

Men's Singles Quarter-Finals

Karlovic v Federer

Roddick v Hewitt

Murray v Ferrero

Djokovic v Haas


At this moment, Haas has won two consecutive sets against Djokovic. Let's see what set number three will bring.

It also looks like Federer will be headed to the semi-final at 7-3, 7-5, 6-6 against Karlovic. Let's see who gets that last point.

Sadly I have missed most of it. I've been kind of busy.

Saw Murray V. Wawrinka, I saw another but its kind of a blur. I was out of it that entire day....

Well, I got to see the Roddick v. Murray semi-final today and they reran Federer v. Haas. The Roddick v. Murray match was incredible with Roddick winning the last two sets in tie-breakers.

Murray had tons of pressure on his side as England's last hope to win Wimbledon for the first time in 73 years. Alas, it looks like it will have to be postponed for one more year. Yet, he gave Roddick a run for his money in today's semi-finals.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Roddick v. Federer match on Sunday. Should be good.

Federer V. Roddick was epic!

Amazing match. Kudos to Federer for breaking history. I never doubted him for a second, I was practically praying for Federer to win.
Anyone watch it?

I watched the whole match.

Man, what a baseline slug-fest! I rooted for Roddick because he was the underdog and he almost pulled it off. Im a fan of Federer too, so I wasn't too disappointed he won but it would have been nice to seen the wealth spread around a little more considering Andy hadn't won Winbledon and Roger already had 5 titles. Poor Andy was soo disappointed. He looked so sad!

I was glad Pete Sampras was there to watch. And didnt he look handsome in that nice suit! I chuckled when Andy said to Pete, "Sorry, Pete, I tried to hold him off." referring to Federer surpassing Pete's record 14 slam titles.

Guess we can bump this thread up from 2009 to 2011:

Wimbledon Finals July 2011: Novak Djokovic def Rafael Nadal
Novak Djokovic (2) 6 6 1 6
Rafael Nadal (1) 4 1 6 3

Честитамо Новака! Волимо те! Ви сте најбољи на свету!

Yeah, that was an amazing win. Some real good volleys there too.

I like it when someone new beats the favorite. Now, he is number 1 in the world. Too bad about Federer however. It just wasn't his year.

However, no one has mentioned anything about the 18 year old Australian that played Djokovic during the quarterfinals. An unranked player (I believe) that young making it that far into the rounds. He's probably someone to look for in the future.

BTW, Djokovic brothers are very attractive. :D

Nobody posted about the U.S. Open concluded this Monday, so I'll take this chance in a related thread to say once again Честитамо Новака!. I like his opponent too...Rafael Nadal, and wouldn't have been unhappy with a win by him. I'm somewhat glad Federer was sent packing earlier.

Rafael might think about spending more time in the off season practicing for the next time he and Novak meet, and less time on another past time....Enjoy!

And to give Novak a nod for his own bit of eye-candy....how about this hint of a treasure trail?
