Will Federer defend this years Wimbledon title? - Page 6

post #76 of 88
I had promised my girlfriend several hours of manual labor today... grasscutting, landscaping, general cleanup, a few handyman chores...

...instead I spent 5+ hours in front of the TV with my heart in my mouth. When I finally clicked off the tube, I heard the lawnmower running outside. Let's just say that it wasn't the most pleasant conversation in taking the lawnmower out of her pissed off hands.

Later, when I had calmed her down somewhat, she was not so impressed when I told her it was maybe the greatest match in Grand Slam history.

^ She might have been had she watched it Tennis fan or not, I don't think anyone could say that match wasn't thrilling.

Such an interesting clash of styles - Nadal with his ability to get practically anywhere on the court to return and Federer's ability to put the ball almost anywhere he wants. Guess defense does win championships after all.

I watched the first three sets on TV in NJ, then had to hit the road back to MD. I didn't realize it was still going on until I stopped at a rest stop in Delaware and saw a crowd around a tiny TV. Caught the final game. When was the last time a tennis match was that compelling?

Tennis commentator Bud Collins famously described tennis as "boxing without the bloodshed," and this match was Ali-Frazier I. Absolutely unbelievable shotmaking and incredible drama. If you didn't love that match, you're not a sports fan.

You know, I watched that, but it just wasn't the same because of the commentary! I love listening to McEnroe (John, not Patrick!)

Hate to say I told you so, but.....


Actually, I don't hate to say it.

I wish Federer would have won but I have to give Nadal my respect for becoming better and better on no matter what ground he is playing. What I really want to see is Federer beating Nadal at the French Open and finally winning it.
