    Don't let Murray hear you say that; he's Scottish.

    And he takes exception to people that mistakenly say that he's English.

    We also take exception that people mistakenly think the miserable bastard is English too.[​IMG]

    Quite, althought I'm quite happy to bask in his glories.

    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?

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

    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!

    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.

    Roddick-Melzer is good.

    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.
