djokovic is easily the favourite to win the semifinal........he has all the answers for federer's tennis........federer can come up with blinding tennis and still that won't be enough because djokovic is now a grown up man on grass, not a baby of 2007 anymore........

One more thing...then I'm through.

Remember when Nadal won the AO and Roger broke down and cried at the interview?  Many 'non-Federer' fans were upset with Roger because they said "he tried to steal the show from Nadal by crying"...(their words).  I said he didn't do no such thing.  It was because Roger really wanted that title and was so upset by not full-filling a dream.  He got caught up in the moment and had nothing to do with trying to steal the show from Nadal.

Now fast forward to this Wimbledon.  Murray broke down in his interview.  Many people are saying "I feel so sorry for Murray and I had tears in my eyes too".  That's what we Federer fans though back in the AO final and we were slammed because Roger cried.  Such double standards....

Personally...I was sad for Murray as well.  Even Roger said he told Murray he knew what that feeling felt like because he's cried before too - and that got a laugh out of Andy. 

It's tough particularly on tennis players because not only does the winner have to talk, but the loser is expected to compose himself after a hardbreaking loss and conduct an interview.  It's very difficult.  My hat goes off the Murray and his fans and just remember what Roger said that he thought Murray would win a slam soon.  And, as Murray said - he is getting closer.  So you guys have nothing to hang your head about.  Murray did you guys proud! :))

Belief in luck is for losers who choose not to properly prepare and prefer to place the blame elsewhere when they fail.

MT

Nice job Andy (not Roddick).
Well done P I N K Y!

Maybe I'll watch some of the match over the next few weeks...... :whistle:

2. federer's career has been a perfect reflection of his latest slam win.........he never had a rival until 5 years ago and when he had one finally, he started losing and winning whatever that rival has allowed him to take.........
Over the last two years Fed's 'rivals' at Wimbledon were Tsonga and Berdych.

This year he wins beating Djokovic and Murray. Is he playing better now, or are Djokovic and Murray just inferior opposition?

Total earnings: $52.7 million [at that moment no GS in last 2,5 years )

#16 Rafael Nadal
Total earnings: $33.2 million (at that moment 4 GS in last 2,5 years....not sure if this year RG was counted)

#61 Novak Djokovic
Total earnings: $20.6 million (after one of the best seasons in tennis history & 4GS in last 2,5 years)

I expect Roger's endearing to skyrocket getting slam #17, having it be Wimbleodon AND get the #1 ranking back and set the record for most weeks at #1. Easily could go to $75 million.

At the end of the day all that matters is slam count


Federer - 17
Nadal - 11
Nole - 5
Andy - 0


I know you guys like to say this, but should Rafa end up with 18, 13 being RG, 18 won't be "enough said."

Rafa is the best clay court player ever (time violations not taken in count )
 but he has only (only in goat term) 4 GS-s on other surfaces ...... even Djokovic has more than him [5 GS-s]

his last title "outside" clay was in Japan Tokyo Mst500 2010 .....
we are talking about player who is at his prime .....
