Title: Wimbledon
Post by: LBSS on July 06, 2016, 04:02:15 pm
Really pulling for an all-Williams final. Probably the last time we'll ever see it! It's unbelievable how long Venus and Serena have dominated the women's game. Others have come and gone but the Williams sisters -- Serena in particular, the goddess that she is -- remain. They've both been pros for more than 20 years! That's fucking insane!

Also I want Federer to win again.

ya i've been watching too. Hoping for Serena vs Venus as well.. just epic. I expect it from Serena, but not from Venus (at this stage in her career, lots of ups & downs).

Man o man, Federer EPIC come back today vs Cilic.. unreal.. He was DEAD, multiple match points, down two sets.. and then he pulls out a historic come back.

Was hoping Tsonga could beat Murray today.. but he blew it in that first set tie breaker. ;/

ye, I watched the federer match, he was down 2 sets and then he came back to win, man that was some class from federer, he had to adjust his play style and pulled through, also muray vs tsonga that first set, set the tone for the rest of the match, tsonga really pulled everything out of the bag for that last sudden death set and murray pulled through and started winning sets.

Djokovic, i dont think will lose, he just beats everyone, when he puts his mind to it, he just wins, would love to see djokovic lose in the finals  :P, nothing personal.

I was justing going to write that, can't believe i missed this epic match.

Sam Querry is a really contender, powerful, but unfortunately he got beaten by milos i think. Now there is more chance of either murray, federrer and other greats to win.

 :uhhhfacepalm: Raonic beat federrer. I really wanted to see federer in the final and win wimbledon again for the last time. But raonic deserves it. Murray vs raonic final is going to be interesting.

federer sailed through and so did murray.

Nadal vs Muller, been going on 4hrs, hope nadal gets through. its 2-2 sets and 9-9 games.

EDIT: That 10-9 game save by nadal just amazing the last point to get to 10-10 games wow. Nadal had 0 challenges up to the 12th game, then he got 3, really helps to have challenges. All those points and misses which could have been cancelled.

muller has his wide shot serves, which helps him in the returns. Muller is a robot lol. Nadal is the one trying to survive i feel and muller just finding it easy on his serves.

 :( It was just too much for nadal. Epic match and longest match in the tournament.

OMG. Federer vs raonic again in the quarter finals. federer's revenge or raonic's 2nd success.

dude what a match: nadal vs muller!

Man Muller played the match of his life.. I'm shocked how good he looked toward the end of that last set.. Nadal was visibly struggling IMHO, Muller was "coasting", he was in that "zone" for sure.. Everything looked effortless.

Sucks to see Nadal out of it but happy for Muller, what a performance.

Federer will beat Raonic hopefully!

I searched on youtube for that best rally video but they are blocking my country but I downloaded it just to check and this video contains multiple good rallies, but the one I was referring to is the second rally in the video. Just awesome. Hopefully your country is not blocked from watching this.

Reminder: I am referring to the 2nd rally in this video.

Ok, FML for posting this in the boxing forum lol.

The best rally between nadal and muller

(https://media.giphy.com/media/3oKIPhHSRvHs3jgDLO/giphy.gif)

not only was the rally good but also how close the ball was to being out and the challenge showing it was in by such a close margin added on to how good of a rally this was.

I'm hoping mugurza (don't know spelling) wins the wimbledon. Also I think federer will win the wimbledon as I am not sure how the others will do up against federer.

Epic and coasting win for federer. Whenever federer's return hits the net, it's like a sting for me. That's one thing that I fear for federer but he's serve is just boss.

I'm voting for muguruza and federer. Both going to accomplish something big if they do win.

 :D  :headbang:  :highfive:  :trolldance:

Muguruza the new woman's wimbledon champion. Once venus lost that first set she appeared to have just gone downhill. But I am happy for muguruza for her first wimbledon champion.

Congrats  :goodjobbro:

Federer is just the best i've ever seen.

Wins his 8th Wimbledon without dropping a set.. First to do it in 40 years.

The precision of his game is unreal.

Awesome job by federer, at the start is was tough then cillic with the injury then the last set cillic coming back but federer will always respond to all challenges and win especially without losing a set.

First one in wimbledon history to achieve 8 wimbledon championships, GOAT.

Honestly, Federer looks better right now than he did 10 years ago. This is pretty insane.

Really looking forward to the US Open, hoping to see a Nadal vs Federer final. That would be enormous.

someone mentioned that to me earlier today. always a possibility. looking better (subjective - but didn't drop a set in wimbledon at age 36) towards the end of your career than you did in your prime, sounds alarms.

i'll just continue to believe he''s legit tho until proven otherwise.. that's come back to bite me on several occasions (Lance Armstrong being the worst of it).
