Federer has made tennis boring because no one can beat him. The great thing about Tennis in the 70s, 80s, and 90s was that there was great parity. A large variety of players could win grand slam tournaments. But now, there is no parity.

Yeah..I mean, I quickly switched over to the beginning of the 2nd set of Henman v Federer and I could just tell how it was going to end and turned it off..he is just too good even for very fine players. Also, I think the likes of Roddick, Hewitt etc would be winning a lot ot titles in most other eras, it's just that Federer is superhuman seemingly.

Well you can hardly blame Federer for being too good.

Blame his opposition for not being better. He'll be found out eventually.

Murray CREAMED Roddick today! The match was supposedly very close (I didn't get to see it because the football was dominating all of the sports programmes here) but that doesn't change the fact that Murray took him out in straight sets. Finally, a sporting related thing to be pleased about today!

It really wasn't very close at the end. Roddick seemed to pull a Nalbandion and gave up slightly. He was hitting alot of his serves into the net at the end, which I'm sure is good news for you and TRE, since you are both such raving Roddick fans

Now Venus is out, I'm rooting for Mauresmo for the final - even if it does mean more comments from my Mother regarding her gender.

no comments necessary re. Mauresmo's gender:
it is both male and female

so everyone is right!

Fantastic! See, now at least being able to watch a portion of that would have made my day. Silly NBC and their subpar Wimbledon coverage!

Your mother does the same? My mother says she looks like Orlando Bloom circa The Lord Of The Rings. She's a fantastic player, though, regardless of her masculine appearance. If Justine weren't still in it, I'd probably be supporting Mauresmo as well.

great result for Murray, and he's got a winable game in the next round against Baghdatis.

With temperatures soaring to 32C on a scorching day at Wimbledon, some of the top players understandably decided to cut short their sessions on the Aorangi Practice Courts.

Sixth seed Lleyton Hewitt came off 10 minutes early, while top women's seed Amelie Mauresmo took it easy and returned to the pavilion after half an hour.

Her early departure freed up the court for one coach to work with a youngster - just about taller than the racquet he was wielding - much to the delight of Belgium's Kim Clijsters.

Clijsters laughed as the youngster struggled to get the ball back over the net, and gave him a generous round of applause when he toddled off the court.

"Gee, he's better than me!" said the US Open champion.
I don't think there's anyone else in sport who's nicer than Kim Clijsters.
