Yes, you are right.. but my point still stand as it was harder (let's put the 90s) to have a player that could dominate 4 surfaces.. and it was mainly because RG played so differently than Wimby and USO even AO.. Nowadays Wimby plays like fast clay.. it's not logical, specially if we are dating Wimbledon's tradition...

wow Dallas, you are still young tho. I thought you were older. Good for you that you were able to retire so early. I envy you.  :))

this is andy murray's time.......
Are you calling this one??? :confused1:

The opportunity is there.
I think he looks better than ever.
Still 2 big matches to go!

i think he will win it this time........make that my call if you want to but that's what i feel........ferrer is an annoying opponent who will chase down everything and unless you totally blow him out and overpower him, he won't go away........

so that was a real test for murray having to beat ferrer by playing a game similar to that of ferrer's quite frankly speaking........

tsonga will be surely easier for murray........let's talk about the final after he makes it.......
A real test indeed.
David makes the best players 'bring it', and exposes the weaknesses of all other players.
It could be Andy (not Roddick's) year.

I won't hold you to it though! ;-()

I'm afraid the final will be Andy Murray vs. Novak Djokovic, implying that Djokovic kicked Federer's arse!

However, because I broke both bones in my right leg, I as a Federer fan, have sacrificed enough in order for the universe and in particular the Higgs Boson to enforce a Federer win today.

I read in the news today that if Fed wins, they'll rename it the TMF particle.

2 more sets like that and this match will last just over an hour...  Sadly I can't see it going that fast.  Can't see Fed winning, but I can always hope!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

On pace for a sub 3-hour 5 sets. You guys must be hating this.

hehe.. I'm loving it!! Besides Fed has changed his strategy.. will it work?? I think so, but Djokovic is on the other side, so who knows.. a 5 setter under 3 hours could be great!!

This is another match... great match.. and they are coming with their best performance on the tournament so far... 3rd. set has been just spectacular!!!

Fed is displaying some aggressive and fine tennis out there!! I am just glad he has changed tactics from the 2nd. set on and now even if he loses, I will congratulate Djokovic but Fed should be proud with today's performance!!

C'MONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!
