Tennis


Any tennis fans here or am I alone?
Thought I'd start this thread as Wimbledon starts tomorrow (or today technically...)

I'm a big Fed fan though I'm fond of quite a few players!

I'm a tennis fan when the majors roll around. I hope Nadal wins and ultimately goes on to beat Fed's GS haul.

That'd be cool, huh?

I'm a tennis fan. I don't follow any other sports. Mostly I've been following just the grand slams. I also like to play myself.

I'm not sure if I get to see Wimbledon and that sucks... I'm hoping the official site has some kind of decent video streaming service.

I gotta get back into watching tennis again. Used to love the Agassi/Sampras days I play as often as I can. Great sport!

^ I agree, the Agassi-Sampras battles were pretty awesome. I remember enjoying them a lot.

John Isner and Nic Mahut in the first round again! Isner will probably win in straight sets this time. I think Federer has another Wimbledon in him - he looked pretty good at the French Open but grass is his favourite. Hopefully Maria Sharapova wins the women's title - it would make womens tennis look really bad if Serena just comes right back and wins Wimbledon after a year off...

I am a massive tennis fan and I am really looking forward to Wimbledon. However, I really dislike Federer for some reason and usually cheer for his opponent.

I think Nadal is more or less a lock to win here because of the surface. Federer cannot beat Nadal anymore and Djokovic is just a touch weaker on grass than on hard court or clay. I don't think Murray has the confidence to take down Nadal under the spotlight of his home crowd, but I hope I am wrong, as Murray is my favourite player. I just hope it is a really high quality, competitive tournament with a great final.

Yay I'm glad I'm not the only tennis fan!
I've actually been at Wimbledon the past 2 years. Last year I got to see the semi finals with Rafa vs. Andy Murray and Djokovic vs. Tomas Berdych. I was one of the only ones rooting for Nadal where I was sitting!

I think Murray could win a grand slam at some point but I don't think it'll be this time.

Man it's getting old that the semis always seem to work out as Murray-Nadal and Djokovic-Federer. Even in the last couple of slams when Nadal and Federer aren't #1 and #2 anymore,it still works out that way. Of course there's a few players capable of upsetting the applecart like Berdych last year. Roddick was always a good bet at Wimbledon,he made a few finals but I think his time has passed now...

I love tennis and I am a Nadal fan. I hope he defends his title in Wimbledon. It would also be the next big step in surpassing Federer's Grand Slam Title record.

Woo! I love A-rod too.



Who does everybody predict will win Wimbledon?
I'm hoping for another Fed victory but I don't think he would beat Rafa if they were up against eachother.

I'm glad someone feels the way I do about him! I don't like how the commentators are so obviously biased towards him too. Annoying

Womens tennis sounds like lesbian porn. I overheard a match today not sure who it was think Maria something and they were really going at it hammer and thongs. I had to double back I couldn't believe the noise this girl was making. Is she always like that lol?

Yeah pretty much - they reckon these players don't even do it in practise,and the whole thing is a put on. I think they're just doing it to put off the opponent - I have no idea how the opponent can stay focused with such a racket coming from the other player.

Serena out - great match from Bartoli. Venus getting pwned so far by Pironkova. Murray played great before,I think he has got a good chance at beating Nadal in the semis. I think Federer will thrash Djokovic in the semis,and be much fresher than the winner of Nadal-Murray after they play a marathon...

Hahaha got to be Maria Sharapova, she is by far the worst for that. I can hardly watch when she's playing, the screeching is awful! You'd think all that energy used in grunting could be put to better uses while playing slightly counter-productive!

Yeah.

So when are the finals? Here's hoping for a Nadal-Djokovic duel Last year I missed work to watch them in the US open (psst, don't tell anyone).
