    Default Wimbledon 2019

    Well....... looks like, barring any upsets, it'll be Roger vs. Rafa in one semifinal, and Novak vs. (somebody) in the other.

    Damn.

    I was hoping Rafa and Novak would go 15 sets and wear each other to shreds, before Novak survived and faced a fresh Roger in the final.

    Fererer is cruising so far so no real wear and tear. Not even been out for two hours yet so the first week was just a nice tune up. He has a great shot IMO as he was excellent on the clay despite not liking it. This is his surface and it would be nice to see a final old man win. You cannot see him going on all that much longer, but he is still so technically good he is able to avoid tough matches until the top 6 start to push at the end. I just cannot see Nadal being the same at 37.

    Hopefully a major or 2 more and that will keep Nadal and Djok at bay. Forever.

    Yeah she did. Lots of majors ahead, though. She's only 15.

    @Master I am mot known for having so many typing errors but I left my laptop at home and on the phone type with only my thumb which is too big and so I keep coming out with errors. I then try to edit and the phone automatically deletes my post and so I kerp the errors in and then have a moan as I am embarrassed.

    BTW, shame about Konta. With a little luck we see Nadal and Djokovic worn down and Fed continuing to cruise. I have nothing against Nadal or Djokovic, but Federer is like the Joe Calzaghe of tennis in that it is pure artistry, an aesthetic delight, and I just want to see him win a few more.

    Also great to see Murray back so soon after his surgery. Hopefully he will consider trying out singles again hip permitting. It is strange seeing him with Serena but think they could do well as two big serves makes it almost like two men against a man and a woman.

    Well.... no surprises. It's Roger vs. Rafa...... and Novak vs. Bautista Agut (?) in the other semi.

    Rafa won in straight sets, so he should be fresh.

    C'mon Roger!!! Kick his ass!

    Federer was shaky in the first set and I got a feeling that Nadal will beat him hope I am wrong.

    Murray and Serena lost which is a shame.

    Friday will be a good day.

    Yeah Nadal has been in Federer's head for years. If Nadal wins, then I hope he faces Novak and Novak wins. Gotta keep that majors record out of reach. (Even though Novak has 15 himself).

    If that was the case and Nadal beats Fed then I want him to win the whole tournament.

    I am still hopeful for Fed, but he worked the hardest in the last round. He needs to start quick against Rafa IMO. Agut is new to these stages, but I have paid more attention to him since the Murray match last year. He might well be able to give Novak a tough workout. He seems to end up playing pretty long sets. A grinding awkward player who seems to stick around and on a good day can beat very good players.

    Roger always liable for a bad day at the office these days - but I been saying that for years and he's proved me wrong. Write him off at your peril.

    Even if Nadal surpasses his slam record I would still put Roger ahead as greatest of all time.

    Nadal is without doubt the best clay court player there's ever been - can't see anyone beating his French Open record but the French aside he's won 1 Australian, 2 Wimbledons and 3 US Opens.

    Roger and Novak have much better records across the slams - apart from the French because its impossible to win whilst Rafa is playing !

    Novak wins his semi final quite easily.

    Now Fed and Nadal contest the other semi final.
