Nadal already out, federer forced to 5 sets already. federer can reel back in his #1 ranking if he wins the tournament and djokovic can't make the final. really this is murray's chance to nab a grand slam, nadal's out, federer still playing well but isn't at his best, djokovic lost a bit of his grand slam winning momentum with his loss in the french open final. no doubt a chance for tsonga and del potro to.

womens side of things, venus already out, clijsters playing her last wimbledon, apparently for the last 6 wimbledons the ladies winner has been different each time so no one is dominant here.

Hope Fed wins. But Djokovic will probably take it.

Ahh finally the thread! Just tweeted to @BanglaCricket yesterday that somebody needed to open the Wimbledon thread. Good going Gowza bhai!

Rosol lost the first set 6-2 now..

And I too think this is Murray's best chance to win the Wimbledon.. Because if everything goes as expected, it will be a Federer Djokovic semis and with Nadal eliminated, should be easier for Murray. Not that I want him to, LOL.

Nadal failing pleases me greatly.

Venus and her auto immune disease not so much :(

Two of my most favs are out... I.e. the Roland Gaross 2012 Camps .. :(

Don't like to watch anymore, unless it's a Djoovic - Fed Final... :)

Djoko and fed would meet in the semis, actually the bottom half us now tougher imo with Murray, tsonga and del potro.

Ferrer making up for Nadal's absence :D

Rain delay. High quality tennis this. Hope Ferrer makes it. This may favour him actually, time to get some fluids in and get recharged. But momentum on Murray's favour.

Maysun
July 4, 2012, 01:40 PM
Kudos to Ferrer for providing such a fight. He was all over Murray in the starting two sets. Couldn't hold his serve during tiebreak and lost the 2nd set to Murray and it was quite downhill from then on.

Federer-Djokovic & Tsonga-Murray!

Roger's gotta go aggressive on Friday. If he can do that, I think he'll get through. Novak's a tough task for anyone though.

Maysun

Serena wins it. Through to the final.

Federer wins it. To the finals. Will face either Tsonga or Murray!

Maysun
July 6, 2012, 09:34 AM
With due respect to Murray and Tsonga, it looks like Federer will win the Wimbledon championship and take the no.1 ranking!

Maysun

Murray leading 2-0

Ahh yeah it will. The new rankings will be due next week and he's going to be no.1 if he wins it.

SUre?? That's a great news .. But sad that Nadal goes down to # 3 :(.... Now Murray entering finals with Fed ... A golden chance for fed I guess....

Can't believe Brits had to wait for 74 years to get a finalist in Wimbledon ... :)

Come on Serena...love the Williams sisters. The racists hating that two black girls have been dominating a sport that was their domain for such a long time(bar the odd exception)

Maysun

Radwanska breaks and holds serve. If it goes like this, it's to a tie break.

It's true that people who hate the Williams are mostly due to racist reasons. But I hate Serena 'cuz of her arrogance. Her sister is way better in terms of sportsmanship.

And always with the underdogs, go Radwanska. Though she's ranked third.. :/

Maysun

Radwanska breaks and takes the second set.

Maysun
July 7, 2012, 10:00 AM
Serena seriously needs to get those ace's coming in the first serve.. And of course commit less unforced errors.

I'm definitely the same...much prefer Venus the player and person compared to Serena. But overall I think they've both been very good for tennis.

If this goes to tie break, Serena will win it.

Federer wins the 2nd set, 7-5 - Murray looked the better player in that set, but paid the price like Fed did in the 1st set.

The beginning of the end for Murray I fear. He really is unlucky, any other era and he would have already won a slam, but he lives in the age of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic

So is Agassi and Ivanisevic. It was Samprass showback then. Specially Agassi. He would'be won lot more title if Samprass wasn't there..

Yeah but Agassi still won 8 Grand Slams, and he had a couple of years in semi-exile when he lost the plot...so not quite the same.

But this Wimbledon win is huge, it'll take Federer to 17 and give him 6 more than Nadal.

With the heavy toll his style of play takes on Nadal, I don't think he'll catch Roger anymore.

:notworthy: Federer!! He has surpassed even greats like Pete Samprass!! Although not a huge fan of him, but have been supporting him today and he has been outstanding......the last time supported him was during Wimbledon final 2008 between him and nadal and nadal won it....:sigh:

But Today it's Federer's day :up:

Equinox
July 8, 2012, 12:31 PM
The best ever!

I am not a Murray fan but I do feel for him. There's always tremendous pressure on him and he got so close this time. He will get it done one day though. Great match.

F6_Turbo
July 8, 2012, 01:04 PM
You couldn't help but feel for Murray. He was completely crushed by that defeat. Up a set, and had 2 break points in the 2nd...if he converts that, he wins the 2nd, and it's a completely different match.

Roger - simply too good.

This wimbledon was all about redemption - Serena and Roger, two 30 year olds, showing the kids they still have fight left in them.

Though Djoko is my third choice in terms of supporting, but I guess he will come back strong. It's gonna be tough for Nad/Fed to beat him here. He looked a bit casual than his normal self, in both Roland Garros & Wimbledon ..

reckon he would have won RG had they not had to go off court, thought he was playing quite well there....wimbledon he didn't look to be in as good form. he's lost his momentum, us open will be important for him, if he doesn't win it i could see nadal and fed getting on top of him but if he wins it i reckon he'll get back on top of them. don't forget fed has won the us open 5 times.

I think Fed will win the US Open. He loves the US hard courts and the Wimbledon win will give him a lot of confidence. He was gonna win last year's US Open too but somehow Novak pulled a couple of rabbits out of the hat on those match points!

Djoker's still the favorite for the US open, no matter how big a Fed fan you are. I just really hope Fed can keep that confidence in him. He needs to win a gold medal.

Ya I agree. But I hope Nad/Fed can finally start to dominate him...
