    I'd like to see Murray do well. An Englishman winning Wimbledon, wouldn't that be something!

    I stand corrected! I retract the statement. Fuck Murray, Roddick for the win!

    I'm probably the only one here who wants a Hewitt-Federer final.

    One for old times' sake.

    Who says these "old-timers" can't compete with the new wave of players?


    That'd be cool.

    Roddick's an old-timer, and I'm predicting him to win.

    Would be great for American tennis but A) I'm not expecting anything from a non-woman American tennis player but chiefly b) really not expecting anything from Roddick.

    Pulling for Atlanta's very own Melanie Oudin.

    And can I just say this? Was never a fan of Green Day to begin with but with that stupid Green Day song leading in from every commercial break on ESPN, I am beginning to despise them even more.

    H, good day for American tennis. Oudin, nice Roddick comeback in the fourth, though this match was really really close. I really wished that Fish had beaten Djokovic yesterday though. It clearly could've happened.

    Federer-Soderling tomorrow should be awesome.

    My brother is in the stands of Court #1 today. He got to see the finish of the Haas-Cilic match. Good stuff.

    I am also very much looking forward to the rematch of the French Open final.

    It definately could have happened and a lot of people thought it would. But Djok put down a very solid, pro performance and Fish was never in it.

    Djokovic's had a sketchy year. He hasn't been talked about too much since he lost the #3 slot to Murray, but he has mad skills and he's looked good on the grass. If keeps his play up he could very well make the final.

    I like watching Soderling and I'm looking forward to the match with Federer.

    I would love to see a Federer / Murray final. In the past, Murray has proven really tough for Fed to handle. If they both play hot, it will be a real chess match, and a win for either will have plenty fo historical tennis significance.

    Definitely Murray-Fed final.

    I'd be surprised if Roddick made it to the semis.

    Federer has two tough matches coming up. Soderling on grass should be able to take a set off Fed and put the pressure on him by taking one or two other sets to tiebreakers. Federer's QF opponent are also big servers and big forehand hitters. Karlovic is gonna drop at least 25-30 aces, and Verdasco is another Soderling-type player. And then in the SF, he possibly has Djoker who hasn't been playing too well this year, but always plays Fed tough.

    Murray has a super easy road to the finals. The only person in his way is Roddick, but Berdych has been playing lights out and is very under-the-radar right now.

    ROger's match wasn't as close as the score may suggest. Seemed like he was on cruise control, keeping energy in reserve for when it is really needed.

    Playing Centre Court with the roof closed is odd.

    Actually, I thought it was a little closer than the score suggests. The score shows Roger swept it in three, suggesting easy passage, but Soderling played well and pressured Roger to the end. Roger was never in trouble, per se, but Solderling had the tie-break of the last set in his hands, only to make two crucial unforced errors (double fault and the driving of an easy forehand wide). If Solderling had converted one or two crucial points, they would have gone to a fourth set. As it was, it was a service battle.

    ^^^Yeah his get up this year is pretty whack. I kinda dug the cardigan last year, but liked the white blazer the best.

    Whenever an outfit is described as militaristic, I immediately think gay Nazi. I dunno why.

    It's a tennis bag. I never understand the people focussing on what everyone is wearing... who gives a fuck.

    Murray - Wawrinka match was awesome. I was rooting for Stan to pull it out at the end once he broke to get on serve, but I think he just didn't have enough gas to stay quite at Murray's level. It was entertaining though, both guys contested the other's serve in pretty much every game.

    The last Murray match was pretty good, although I'm worried he's falling back into old habits and getting tired too quickly. Ferrero should be a challenge for him, but I think he'll get through. The semi between Murray and Hewitt/Roddick should be very interesting...

    Federer's entire outfit looks goofy.

    Between points, murry did look pooped in the end, but i think he held strong during actual play. Great match. It was fun to watch and hear the crowd. It made me wish I was there.

    Murray will wipe the court with Ferrero, who I actually like.

    Federer-Dr. Ivo will be interesting.
