Didn't find any threads yet. So thought I'd make one.

 

Anyways, thoughts on the Wimbledon Final guys? Personally Murray deserved to win and he played well along the tournament. I never really expected Novak to win, amazing shots from Murray.

 

It was a grand slam with shocks though, nadal out in the first round, federer and tsonga following suit. Williams and Sharapova also bowing out, I expected a Djokovic and Federer final at the start but it turned out to be different.

 

Fire away!

Although Murray has the personality and speaking style of a wet rag, good on him for breaking through for his first grand slam, and good on him for being the first Brit to win a grand slam in over 77 years.

 

Nole's still the best of the best, though.

Wasn't his first slam, but yes huge congrats to him. Beating Novak in three sets, who'd have guessed that?

That last game seemed to take ages. 3 championship points and he let them go, he was trying his best to bottle it. But in the end he managed to pull through and finally kill him off. Played really well though and he did deserve it. Finally we have a British men's Wimbledon champion again. Took our bleeding time. Unfortunately I don't see him ever having a job in the media when he retires, so it's a good job he has all that prize money to keep him going, otherwise he'd probably be dead at 45 like all the other Scots.

Wasn't able to watch today's match unfortunately. I watched Lisicki's match yesterday though. Was a sh*t performance but seeing her cry during the match was kinda heartbreaking. sad.gif

Bartoli had a great tournament and fully deserved to win it (although she had the weaker opponents to overcome than Sabine).

At the Aus Open a few years ago, my dad and I actually met Lisicki when she was like 300th in the world playing a qualifying match; the qualifying matches are played on the week-end before the tournament, so we roamed around some of the outside courts and saw some relatively top players training (we met Baghdatis the same way in 2006). My dad and her dad (and coach) ended up having a good half-an-hour conversation since they turned out to both be physiotherapists. lol.gif

 

@Jonboy: Ah yeah, I forgot the US Open from last year. Still, props to Murray for breaking the Wimbledon hoodoo.

it really felt like it was meant-to-be this year, for Andy.

 

the tennis gods parted the proverbial Red Sea by allowing the other top rated men to drop like flies.

I'm surprised Novak didn't give it up to Del Potro considering the way their match began.

 

if there was ever an opportunity for Murray to capitalize on the home court, this was it, and he delivered.

it's not even like Djokovic played poorly. in spite of the straight-set sweep, this was a pretty tough match that drug out for over 3 hours.

 

great match to watch.

Even though it was a straight set match, still pretty intense.

 

And Roger seems to be losing his touch, I like him but he's really going to have to work hard to win a Grand Slam again imo.

 

Also, I felt Del Potro should have won the semi against Novak he played superbly but he still wasn't able to pull it off.

Roger's past his prime. I'll give him about two or three years before he gracefully bows out.

Yeah hes past his prime for sure. The days of his domination are long gone. I still expect him to be around the scene for another few years yet tho.

Sad to see Roger Federers decline in form recently. I really hope this is not the end for him.

I think he still has something left. It was sad about his loss today but he currently is dealing with a back injury and is trying a new racquet. But we can only hope he might just surprise us with another GS title or two before he retires.

Indeed. I have only been a tennis fan for a few years but have never seen him in his prime. While he has won some GS since then, Id love to see him win some more. He seems to be a very likeable man. Would love to meet him sometime.

It unfortunately is. I can't see him winning another slam ever again. Maybe, if he tried really hard like in '12, Wimbledon next year. Other than that he's pretty much finished. Shame, he's my favourite tennis player and one of my favourite athelets ever.

Bump.

 

So the Oz Open is over and Wawrinka has won it! Who'd have expected that? Amazing performance from Stan though. Beating Djokovic and Nadal in a Grand Slam tournament? Simply amazing.

 

Honestly after he beat Djokovic, I wanted him to win the title unless Roger went out. Of course I support Roger in every tournament he plays (Big federer fan here) but he definitely is showing signs of his old-self after a bad 2013. Semi-Final in the Oz Open is actually a pretty good result considering his recent run of form.

 

Wawrinka is now the World No. 3 from tomorrow, hopefully he can carry on this form into his next tournaments.

It was a boring final and before the start I was hoping for Nadal to win. He'll triumph at Rolland Garros though haha! :)

 

Great tournament for Wawrinka btw

Had the pleasure of visiting the US Open yesterday. Waiting 1.5 hours in line, in the sun, to get into Louis Armstrong stadium to see Djokovic's match with Kohlschreiber. Worth it. N. Djokovic won in 3 straight sets, of course.

Then watched the former doubles champs Stepanek/Paes bow out:

And with a little luck, some strangers gave us their day session tickets to Arthur Ashe as they were leaving. We got to see a little of Tsonga/Murray right before we had to catch our train:

^ Nice shots!

 

Personally, I'm rooting whoever wins this match tonight - RF or Monfils, I'd love to see Roger win one more Open.

 

Too bad Murray was in so much pain and Rafa out :( .

Astonishing performance by Cilic in this years US Open. I really didn't think he would reach the semifinals and let alone win it all. The great Federer was powerless against him and Nishikori got crushed in the finals. I guess changing the coach finally paid off, I'm sure many of us here still remember Ivanisevic's remarkable play in 2001 Wimbledon Championships. Also, it was interesting to see that none of the 'Big 4' reached the finals (Nadal wasn't even in the tournament). Not since the 2005 Australian Open had there been a major final contested without one of the ATP’s Big Four. It was also the first time since 2002 that a player outside the Top 10 has won the US Open (Sampras was ranked #17 and beat Agassi).

 

Cilic's amazing play in this tournament leaves us wondering is this just a one time performance or can he do it again.
