Same old story!! Another Wimbledon and may be another trophy for Federer.

Bancan wants Roddick to win. So do I. Mine is little broader. If not Roddick anyone but Federer. May be our prayers will be answered this time.

The draw is favorable. Djokovic will face Federer in the semis if they both go that far. On the other side, Roddick and Nadal.

I wish Sampras was still playing. :(

Some Sampras fans are still stuck in the 90s.

Dislike. He is a robot. He hogs everything (majors) in sight. Too good for the rest (at least has been). He needs an emotional training course (humbleness) from Tiger Woods to get fans like me on his side. He won't do that and I would not support him. So in this case go underdogs.

Arnab
June 20, 2008, 11:38 AM
So you dislike Federer because he is so successful? Or do you habitually prefer the underdogs, which is more understandable?

But still, Federer is quite a nice guy on and off the court. Very rarely, if ever, sounds arrogant.

At least Tiger thinks Federer is fine. Last time I heard they were buddies.

So you dislike Federer because he is so successful? yes and his attitude. Or do you habitually prefer the underdogs, which is more understandable? no. I support Tiger Woods and Brazil. Ultimate winners. Big fan of Michael Jordan also.

But still, Federer is quite a nice guy on and off the court. Very rarely, if ever, sounds arrogant. So true. That is why I can't hate him. had he been a little nicer (not enough for me) may be then I would have loved him. On second thought, may not. Who can like a Robot? Tiger can laugh and cry in the same course, whereas, Federer never shows emotion. Even after wins, a second of emotion then back to square one. All most like fake emotions. I can not relate myself to him. No connection.

At least Tiger thinks Federer is fine. Last time I heard they were buddies. They are indeed. And I am pissed.
I know what pete says is true. Federer will surpass him in majors. That makes me even more sad.

Arnab
June 20, 2008, 12:09 PM
Interesting. You are quite the nutty sports fan.

I think there's a lot of emotion in Federer, may be not just the type that you prefer. He's developed the poker face if you will. You seem to like visual cues of emotions to feel connected, i.e., the typical chest thumping, strutting and screaming monkey stuff. Nothing wrong with that.

Rabz

TE, You've got the right to have your own opinion. Fair and Square.

But i like Federer. For me, its very hard not to like him. As you said, he wins everything that comes his way ( shhhhhh no one's talking about French Open!)
At only 27 ( if im not mistaken), he has already taken himself to such a new height that he can only be compared with the other Immortals of the game.

More importantly, he has still so much left in him that it can only be imagined where he is going to end up with.

He is like Tendulkar of Tennis. By the time he retires, he would probably brake all sorts of records. And im sure at some point, he would he would win his kryptonite, the French Open.

Nadal, Roddick, Djokovic can be as "very good" as they are. But the race would always be that of "Chasing Roger".


...and c'mon, he is not that robotic, not certainly like Sampras.

Arnab
June 20, 2008, 12:21 PM
I think TE dislikes Federer because he likes Sampras, and he just cannot accept that Sampras can be overtaken by Federer. That's in a nutshell what this is all about.

I have seen quite a few Sampras fans like this on the Internet. They became so emotionally attached to Pete that they cannot help feeling some kind of resentment for Federer.

100% correct.

Syd,
Federer is a robot. A bot. Same level as Jim Courier who is the greatest Robotic imitator I have ever seen.

Bancan
June 20, 2008, 08:59 PM
Hopefully Roddick wont disappoint. Go to the finals atleast. We all know he can do it.
I wont mind if Federer wins but I dont like Nadal and dont want him to progress.
It gets boring watching the same old Nadal vs Federer finals.

If both Nadal and Roddick go to the semis, they will play each other.

BANFAN
June 21, 2008, 04:28 AM
I am with Fed, c'mon. But won't mind if Nadal takes this time. Infact that will be good, he should have taken atleast once by now. But bad luck.

Anyone else taking it, I will be shocked.

Bancan
June 21, 2008, 02:36 PM
Nadal trying to get Tigers support like Roger maybe.

Thanks to satellite i can watch multiple matches which is cool. Cmon Roddick.

BANFAN
June 22, 2008, 02:27 AM
Can Roddick make an upset ? Very unlikely IMO :)

Gowza
June 22, 2008, 03:41 AM
roddick is a contender but he's definitely behind federer, nadal and djokovic for mine, if it's not one of those then roddick is one of the next names that comes up but i think he has to play nadal in the semis and then he'd be playing either federer or djokovic in the finals. i don't see him being able to get past 2 of the major 3, maybe if the courts were playing quicker but from what i've heard they're slow like last year.

BANFAN

..................maybe if the courts were playing quicker but from what i've heard they're slow like last year.

They will be favouring Federer.

Safin makes Federer's journey easier.

thebest
June 25, 2008, 01:19 PM
Safin is like Ashrafluke. So much promise, so much potential; but rarely delivers. I think Safin is the only player who can match Fed Shot for shot (in terms of grace) and win in any surface.

Gowza
June 26, 2008, 03:14 AM
djokovic got whooped, unfortunately this win for safin means nothing, he's probably still going to lose early in the tournament anyway. i know everyone thinks or did think federer was the most talented of his generation, i actually think safin was right there with him, he just didn't come good like federer did.

Gulbis takes the first set against Nadal. seceond set nadal leads 2-1. nadal having a tough time. But will probably make his way through at the end.

Bancan

Blake lost in a 5 set match.
Mirza loses in a amazing match.
Sharapova down by a set and 5-4.
Roddick tied at 5-5 in the first set.

I went yesterday and day before yesterday....Planning to go on Saturday as well.....I was urging James Blake on screaming at the top of my voice in that five set thiller..It sucked that he lost...Also saw Dementive, Serena and Venus,Vaidisova, Chakvetadze, Mauresmo and host of other players....Saw Federer practice within touching distance....oh and here comes the best one....I took a photo with Huntuchova!...I just love Wimbledon!...I can upload some photos later on if you guys want...

yeah the dress code has always been there, actually i think a few years ago one of the women wore like a coloured wrist band or hair band or might have been their shoes and the organisers had a bit of an issue with it.

upsets galore this year at wimby, making it quite interesting tbh.

cricman
June 27, 2008, 10:15 PM
Hewitt-Federer, Baghdatis-Lopez good RD of 16 matches hopefully Hewitt can give fed a Fight ...

This isn't the Safin that thrashed Sampras or Beat Federer When Federer in 5 in AO a few years ago but the serve and head are there, the movement and groundstrokes aren't but he's getting better it's fun and sad to see a player a shell of his former self still getting it done, the draw seems open enough for him to get a showdown vs Federer in the semis he's one of the few who can match Fed shot for Shot hopefully he can round into form by than we see could have a Classic Semi.

Why do you hate Federer? I was Sampras fan too, but I think Federer is better.

Some Sampras fans are still stuck in the 90s.

I stopped watching Tennis after Sampras came in, totally killed the game. I started watching Tennis again since last year French Open and it has been fun. This year we are likely to have 3 separate winners. That is what we call competition!!! Sampras and Fedex are great players, no doubt at all. But their dominance is as boring as Schumy and RB winning 15 out of 17 races in 2003 (or was it 2002).

The weather in London is awful. Didja see how many people spun out on that wet track. And whats with Ferrari's strategy... sticking with those old tires for so long? Anyways.... it was a good race to watch.

As for the tennis... shucks, Nadal lost a well fought out 3rd set. I'm still rooting for him despite Federer's 40-0 score right now and the crowd cheering. I do think Federer is the better player hands on, but I am really taken by Nadal's tenacity. He's continually trying to get the better of Federer's softer backhand.

Go Nadal!

2-2 :( Nadal seems to get planted to one side of the court too early. I was noticing Federer's foot movement at his semi-final match... always shifting around so gracefully, very well balanced. Makes covering the court look so easy.

It's actually in Silverstone, a village in east-midlands. But yeah the weather has been bad all around today.

Not sure what Ferrari tried to do. It was a gamble and cost them. Lewis did very well though to handle the conditions.
