    Watching Wimbledon on Roku 3 - ESPN:

    Did you see the playback where Venus and Serena are playing doubles and Serena chases a ball and cannot stop falling into the crowd?

    Did you see Djokovic sliding in split formation?

    Wimbledon is my favorite tournament. The all white clothing rule allows for nice views. So many hot players.

    So it is NOT the tennis that moves you to watch?

    NO I love the tennis too. There was a tournament down here at Amelia Island that I loved to attend. It was a women's tournament. I've seen the Williams sisters, Gabriela Sabitini, Steffi Graf, Martina and Chrissy. I've seen a few men's tournaments with Andre and Pete. Is it wrong that I think they look hot?

    Serena seems to need a good fcuking to get her head back in the game. Whenever she's out of love she plays like crap.

    Nadal is happy about beating the guy, Rosol, who beat him in 2012.

    Watching a great player who is at the end of the portion of her career where she's a star is painful. RIP career of Venus Williams. We love the lady but hate to see her lose.

    Serena yesterday looked weak at the outset but kicked butt; she's still got it going on!

    Watching Roger Federer is still a joy, but, God help us, we hope he doesn't make it to the finals by some fluke and have to watch him get trodden under the very capable feet of either Novak or, more likely, Rafa.

    And then there's dark-play, as some have begun referring to it here today. We were six rows back from the court, and could barely see the ball looking into the "lighted" court area, so how the heck could Berdych or Cilic see it? Our two cents: the chief referee should be taken out and whipped for not suspending play! As Scarlett O'Hara would say: tomorrow is another day!

    Having said that, Cilic was magnificent and had the match won fair and square before the darkness at the end. He's definitely someone to watch for the future, as he may have finally found his game, given this strongest showing yet since the 2010 Australian, in our opinion.

    You should be glad anyone responds to your posts.

    Now tell me - is Serena still in the competition?

    So let's see now - how many early exists have we had:
    The Australian
    The French
    Now Wimbledon

    Damnit!

    Serena booted 3 in a row before the Quarters.
    The official downfall may have begun. The US Open will be telling. Sharapova is the happiest girl in London right now.

    It was tough to be in the stands and watch her play so badly today. Your earlier comment about her "deficiency" may be right; something sure is. No question, though, that Cornet played her best, and good for her. But if Serena had played even mediocre instead of bad, Cornet would be out, and we'd be looking forward to another Serena match next week.

    On other fronts, both Rafa and Novak struggled but then kicked butt, yet Rog just plain kicked butt. WTH is going on over here?

    Hope you guys are enjoying the drama. Major upsets live can be fun.
    Fed still has a lot of game in him and he looked great today. I look forward to him getting some revenge back on Robredo for that fluke US Open win.
    Nadal recovered nicely. I think were headed for an actually very competitive Nadal/Federer Semi.
    I see the big 4 getting through and Djoker>Murray in the the other Semi. (assuming there is no shoulder issue from here on out)

    Can't disagree with enjoying the exciting tennis, but when you see a truly great player faltering, it's more sad than exciting. Again, if Serena had been on her best game or even a mediocre game, and if Cornet had played gangbusters at that level and out-played her, THAT would have been excitement and worthy.

    Federer definitely has a lot of game in him, but not at the level of winning grand slams. Won't mind the Novak-Murray match at all, if it comes to be, which we agree likely will. THAT will be tennis. Novak says his shoulder is fine; but we'll see. If he only HAD one shoulder, he would likely still beat that pussy Murray, last year's flash in the pan notwithstanding! icon_lol.gif

    Serena has no excuse. She was prepared and in shape like she said and needed to come back strong at Wimbledon this year like she has done in years past. She's chasing history but her being the favorite at the Slams is going to come to an end soon if this continues. Serena also does not do well against young, feisty players who play her tough and can get under her skin with smart tactics. She needed to adjust and didn't. The power is there but her game is getting outdated.

    Federer unfortunately is going to run into Nadal. He could win another Wimbledon if he didn't have him or Djoker in the way but that's not going to happen.

    If Murray is playing at the top of his game it will be good match but I got Nole moving on to the final- hopefully fresh.
    Del Potro heavily assisted Murray in last year's win.

    Roger isn't as exquisite and consistent as he used to be.

    Andy Murray defeated South Africa's Kevin Anderson, who was seeded 20th, in straight sets on Monday.

    Yes. She is coaching Murray. Mauresmo is quite attractive.

    Impressive performance from Kyrgios. He kept his cool and took it too Nadal. This was very similar to the Rosol match 2 years ago just a set quicker. Rafa struggles on grass with these tall guys who have a huge serve and can hit him off the court.

    I just heard from friends that are in England and at the March about Rafa. They are stunned - their words - and I'm surprised. I look forward to watching the recording tonight.
