federer ios the obvious choice he's been playing ridiculous tennis.

Since Roddick split with Brad Gilbert I think his game has actually gone down a bit. I feel like things that gilbert brought to his game ( better net play for example) have actually regressed.


I'm actually interested in seeing if marat safin decides to show up, or be his usual headcase self. The man has such ridiculous talent I think if he had even 1 percent of federers mental game he'd rule the world.


There is a great Article in GQ this month on Safin and Anyone looking for a US open preview should check out this months tennis magazine.

Nalbandian all the way



More seriously speaking, I think Federer has the highest chances... but who knows, maybe this kid Nadal (as much as I hate him) can have a shot at the finals as well. After all, he won Montreal beating Agassi in hard courts last month.

yes, maybe nadal - federer in the final could produce a much more entertaining final than if federer plays/beats roddick again

Federer will win the men's. I just hope it's not another Federer/Roddick final. I hate Andy Roddick AND his stupid adverts on TV.

As for the women's singles, I'm not sure. I'd like to see Justine win it...her game really has improved over the years. I can still remember her first Wimbledon final. I have my fingers crossed for the Williams sisters too, but I have my doubts about Serena, what with her injuries. If Sharapova wins, I think I'll break something.

Umm, maybe.

Although Nadal kicked his butt in the French Open. And I think he will also have a hard time against Safin, if he is playing well.

Federer has been unbelievable lately. I can't see him not winning.

I genuinely like the guy but you never know. The ball is round.

Ugh! Lleyton Hewitt was right to bitch about the seeding at Wimbledon - they're trying to set up finals between Roddick and Federer, why I don't know. It's not exciting anymore!

I'll be sending Andy bad vibes prior to the start of the tournament. Maybe it will help.

I know, I don't understand why either.

I've been sending him bad vibes for the last year

Federer is the MAN! I'll be very surprised if he doesn't win.

Nadal is a lot of fun to watch. Is it just me or does he flex his "left" bicep every time he wins a point? He actually puts the racket into his right hand so he can fist pump his left bicep. Why, you ask? His left bicep is huge compared to his right one (being left handed). You would think that having such a variance would offset his balance. I guess not.

In other news: I'm playing in my first club tennis tournatment in a few hours!! I hope I win!!
