I'm so glad Mauresmo won. It's going to be difficult for me, though... I like Justine as well!

WHA, as for Roddick, I think he can be a bit of an idiot on the court when he starts to challenge calls. His ego comes through just a little too strongly at times. Above all, I think he's highly over-rated in North America. He's the US golden boy and he can do no wrong in the eyes of the commentators. That's always a bit annoying. And what's with his serve?! There's no need to stick your rear out like that! Just serve normally!

That said, he seems like a nice enough guy off the court.

Roger demolished Bjorkman today. I hope he'll be battling against Nadal in the finals! I despise Nadal so much that I'm not even watching his match against Baghdatis.

I didn't watch the match, but I just saw the score on MSNBC's home page. Ouch.

I'm hoping it's Roger and Nadal in the finals too. I think that is a really good rivalry (I want Roger to win ).

The Roger/Rafa rivalry is one of my favourites. I rank it just behind the old McEnroe/Connors rivalry! And seeing as Nadal just handled Baghdatis with relative ease, it's going to be an interesting Wimbledon final.

I'll be routing for Nadal.

I want to see someone beat Roger in a major on a surface other than clay for once.

I am so sick of Federer winning every damn match he plays.

the final will be interesting, but Federer is playing near perfect tennis...i find it hard to see him losing this.

i bet after losing to Nadal on clay 3 times in finals this year, Federer will be thrilled with the chance for revenge on his favourite court/surface.

As much as I like to see someone challenge Federer (for the sake of making the tournament more fun) I can't stand Nadal.

Both players have something to prove now. Nadal has to prove that he isn't just another clay-court specialist ( albeit he is has the record for consecutive wins on clay) While Federer has to prove he can beat Nadal. It has the makings of a classic final which unfortunately rarely lives up to expectations but I will be watching.

Why do the women sound like they are having monster orgasm's when they're smacking the ball.........is it a tactic to put off their opponent, or are they really releasing energy

I agree- he has demolished some really good players in straight sets on his way to the final - though I think Nadal is really good I don't reckon he's a match for Federer on grass.

Intriguing as hell. Here's a guy who's a multiple Grand Slam winner, seeded 2nd, and when he gets to the final it's still damn surprising.

Well done Rafa. It'll be a very interesting match-up tomorrow, considering Federer's superiority on grass but Nadal's winning record against him. Federer is still odds-on favourite of course but for Rafa to make it this far is amazing.

Mauresmo won, and quite deservedly so too.

Congratulations, Mauresmo! I was hoping Justine would win, just so that she could extend her grand slam streak. But Amelie is a nice person and a fantastic tennis player, so I was glad to see her raising the Wimbledon trophy. She fought brilliantly to get back into it after playing so terribly in the first set and having such a bad serve in the second.
