Let's see.... you have Sam Querrey :rofl_2:
Ivan Dodig :rofl_2:

2 pretty good players from the past:Malisse and Nalbandian (but they are playing each other so one will be out) :rofl_2:


Oh... I see Dimitrov is through :innocent:  and Cilic...

I bet the Queens people are praying you won't have a final between:  Dodig vs Dimitrov.... I don't think that would be a good draw of fans. :innocent:

oh boy  :rofl_2:. I think I'll be cheering for that kid Dimitrov. I really like his style. There is a reason they call him a baby Fed. plus it would be cool that these so called 'youngsters' start winning tournaments.

On the other hand, we had that great match between Djokovic and Nadal at Queens few years ago, that was epic. I kinda feel sorry for spectators at Queens.

Tsonga's finger sprained, not broken
Ticker - Friday, June 15, 2012

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's team says on Facebook that he did not break his finger when he fell in a loss to  Ivan Dodig at Queen's Club. "Tsonga suffered a severe sprain of the little finger of his right hand without tearing," the statement read.  "He will have a new scan on Monday. His participation in Wimbledon is currently not in doubt."

Dimitrov is still there, the guy has been hyped up for quite awhile now.
His game is pretty good but still don't see what all the hoopla is about.

I don't think so. He is fun to watch, very talented, but not very consistent/effective. He does make some beautiful shots but tennis is not ballet, if you know what I mean. as I said before none of these youngsters are that good. We are stuck with Djokovic and Nadal for next few years, they'll probably take all slams. maybe it's a bold prediction but I have a really strong feeling about this, plus Fed is not done yet ... although he is slowing down, he is still capable of winning another major ... plus he have Murray who is hanging in there. It is going to take some miracle to go through all 4 of them.

well, for me 60-70 players in the top 100 are fun to watch. the question should be: when will dimitrov win a title? take Young 1 final lost in his career in 2011 at age 21, or Gulbis born in 88 won two titles in Delray2010 and LA2011. Dimitrov born in 91, Tomic and Harrison in 92, no finals yet played. It takes now more time from both female and men to make the transition from juniors to establish top pro players, the game has evolved too much, you don't see anymore players breaking at age 17-18 like the ones we all know. to read the list of juniors finalists at majors in recent years shows that the transition is very slow.
Only one exception, Raonic, born december 90, future top 10 for sure and very probably top 5.
