I'm glad to see there are some of you in England who can cheer a Scot on but i'd also still love for Timmy to win! I believe he is playing but it looks like he only has 1 or 2 years left
tiger timmy is edging closer to the end of the line i believe he is 73 rd in the world and is suffering from injury badly.

if he doesnt make it this year he will retire i think.

Roddick lover


but really, you can't seriously argue that Federer isn't the best on grass. he's won wimbledon 3 years in a row & last year he only lost one set!


i just hope for a finalist other than Roddick this year, Fed vs Rod is so boring

Exactly! In 2004 the women's final was far more exciting than the mens because the underdog beat the fantastic Serena Williams. I like it when similar scenerio's happen in football also.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Wiliams sisters, I think they are true icons in tennis for not only women, but more importantly, black women who come from poor backgrounds. There is a real underepresentation of underpriveledged youngsters (it's still regarded as a posh sport in Britain) and black people in tennis.

But it's still nice for an underdog to win occasionally. Remember when that other guy won for almost 5 years in a row during the 90's (I forget his name )? I think it makes the sport stronger if it's not always dominated by a few individuals/teams. That is what happening with football right now, which Greece proved when they won Euro 2004

i have never been able to get interested in ladies tennis not sure why really maybe cause half the top players seem more interested in modeling than playing tennis.

i do enjoy watching Federer on grass to some degree, his shot making is breath taking but competition is always great


if you want good competition, watch the french open this year. Nadal & Federer are having quite the battle on clay....Nadal won in 5+ hours in a 5th set tie-break in Rome on Sunday. Fed had 2 match points in the game too...
