    First Nadal, then Federer. Perhaps there is a changing of the guards.

  • jtclassic

    It was refreshing to see a player win a match in a Grand Slam tournament (and against arguably the greatest of all time) by playing the net. We hardly see that these days. Most matches these days are won from the baseline.

    What happened in Wimbledon is unprecedented. Parang gustong iparating ng mga players that the tennis grass courts of Wimbledon are very dangerous to the players. Seven rated players (men and women) either lose questionably or retired to injuries. Even Darcis who defeated Nadal also suffered injury prompting him to withdraw. The same thing happened to Tsongga and Azarenka and several others.

    I think the players just don’t want to give their best because of the dangerous tennis grass courts.

      You are an ignoramus Spit but I must say that your are at your “most ignorant best” when it comes to tennis.

        …you are worst at your best on ad hominem.
        You can disagree with any person’s opinion as it is your right, but hurling invectives shows who you are.

        Disagree if you must, but refrain from derogatory words.
        Everyone has his/her right to their own opinion, even those opinion maybe right or wrong; to others.

        Aw c’mon Hardy Har Har, lighten up. Do don’t get up on your soap box and pontificate. BTW where’s you friend Lippy The Lion?

        I suppose you are entitled to your opinion no matter how asinine it maybe. After all there is freedom of speech.
