Its gonna be sucky sucky if Tommy played injured Kohli. Even worse if Kohli doesn't play at all  :Confused:

Philipp apparently injured his ankle during semis vs Seppi

feel bad for Kohly but I really want Tommy to go deep at W. On the other hand, I really hope we can see Djokovic vs. Federer in semis  :) . it would be so cool.

I actually think Nole has a really tough draw against Ferrero. He has been and can be a top class player. Murray also has a tough path, while Roger and Rafa have it press easy until the SFs. You would think the world number one would have the best draw but obviously not.
"Sometimes it feels like you're not on a tennis court, the amount of noise you guys produce and for us it's a great feeling. It's a pleasure playing in front of you. It's my great privilege to be standing here in front of one of the greatest players ever, Rod Laver. "

Nadal should romp on Ferrero but you never know.  J.C. is/was a world-class player.  Am sure Raf is not taking it for granted!

They are one in the same to me......


All kidding aside, thank you for the correction.
I may have gone the whole tourney without knowing the difference. :Confused:

djoko and fed both look very beatable, alex.......grass is not djokovic's favourite surface and he will be challenged by a lot of players........last year he was untouchable and just carried that early season momentum into wimbledon.......

i think this tournament is going to be a show of three men - nadal, del potro and berdych.......

Don't you know that this world lives on a "what have you done for me lately" mentality! :rofl_2: 

I'm looking forward to Wimbledon and hope my favorite has a great tournament.  I see he's starting on court 1 tomorrow.  2nd up.

Here's the schedule of play:

I doubt Berdych can hold it together and win it all but he can have his day.

the Berdych vs. Gulbis match should be fun as long as a Clown Gulbis doesn't show up (nowadays, we just never know with Gulbis). I'm really looking forward to Nalby vs. Tipsy match. I kinda have a feeling it's going to be epic.

I agree. I can see him causing an upset or two, but would be surprised if he can win the whole thing.

Berdych will never win a major. I hate to say this but he is a mental midget.  :whistle:

5 of them picked Rafa, 4 picked Fed and 2 went with Djokovic.

He has a lot of potentially tough matches on his way to semis. Hope he is physically in good shape.
