Wimbledon 2010 thread

For anyone who's interested, Wimbledon starts today (or tonight as may be the case where I live) and all. May be overshadowed by the FIFA WC but who gives a damn.

Begin discussion.

Hopefully this is Cirstea's breakthrough tourny. Beat Schiavone at Eastborne and blew a match point before losing against Kuznetsova, so her form is alright..

And Federer drops first 2 sets of opening round match to Alejandro Falla (who?).
If he fails to rally that would be a monumental upset to say the least.

Bloody hell Falla was serving for the match at one point. I imagine Federer will probably go on to win from here.

Falla looks like he's completely out of gas, so, yeah, Federer will likely win.

But maybe Falla can get a 2nd wind and at least go down fighting here in the 5th.....

Stick a fork in Falla. Too bad, so close.

This probably says more about me than it does about them, but, I really struggle to watch women's tennis due to the grunting/screaming. It kind of sucks, cos I really do like tennis, but, it's really fucking annoying.

Alright, Roddick's match is starting, good......

If you turn the TV up really loud your neighbors might actually have some respect for you.

I still can't get over last year's Wimbledon final: Roddick v. Federer. I've never been more invested in a tennis match in my life (considering Andy's been my fave player since I was like 16, and his past struggles against Fed), and I've probably never seen a better match in my life. Fucking great stuff. Disappointing finish.

Roger's been such a huge roadblock in Roddick's career - let's hope someone upsets him so Andy can get that Wimbledon title he's been so close to claiming throughout his career.

Wouldn't you prefer that he actually beats Federer instead of needing his absence to win?

I would prefer it, of course. But let's just make it a little easier for him and watch Federer get knocked out of the tournament early. I'd take it. And love it.

I can't help you there, GAF. I like Roddick a lot but there's no way I'm going to root against Federer. I'd rather see Andy beat him, frankly, if possible.
