I'm looking forward to grass again but don't 'feel' the excitement yet.
 
The only one I got in the race here is Fed, DelPo hasn't shown much on grass and even skipped warmups.

Everyone has a chance but they have to take it.
 
It's just the top guys are so tough mentally, they have been there multiple times and physically are just savage beasts with no hearts.

Swish, you are right about 'everyone has a chance but they have to take it'. couldn't agree more

as for 'savage beasts with no hearts' ...  :rofl_2: ... that was too good, you should be a poet  :))

honestly, I don't. he might make semis and that's probably it. As Alk says, we are probably going to have another Nole/Rafa final, but never say never... just my feeling.

I have little confidence in Murray but will give him and Lendl the rest of the year before weighing in on that male union.

murray said the other day that he has little or no time to prepare for wimbledon.
 
what bulls**t.
 
he lost early at RG. what has been doing all that time? its not like has a 9 to 6 job like the rest of the world.
 
there should been a premium on the training on grass the day he lost at RG.
 
he should have been on grass the very first next day if not sooner.

I'm always calling for dark horses  :)

Now don't be that unrealistic Lug  :)~
BUT I still think we might have some serious surprises in early rounds......
