Feel bad for serena williams, but I think it's time for new stars to come on the scene.

Tomorrow is the wimbledon men's final at 2pm gmt and world cup final at 4pm gmt.
Tennis is definitely going to go longer than 2 hrs.

congrats to kerber  :goodjobbro:

i don't feel bad for serena at all! she made it to the final of the biggest tennis tournament less than a year after she nearly died giving birth. she is the queen.

Wimbledon has reached semi finals and yesterday semi final between anderson and isrin or something like that. was an epic match. back and forth.

Longest match in history ever breaks the longest match record to 6hrs 35mins, both have 2 game points last round went to 26 - 24 to anderson. one point anderson fell down and got up and continued the rally with a left hand response and won that rally.
his serve has 80% ace rate.

just epic and nadal and djokovic had to wait lol.

That was a great match but it wasn't even close to the longest ever. No coincidence that it occurred between two monster servebots at Wimbledon.

one of whom also played in the actual longest-ever match!

oh wow 11hrs match. I probably misheard the commentators where they said a record was broken.

But the tennis final, just watched it, I always knew djokovic would win it, he is just a great all rounder, anderson just was not ready for him, he has great serves but struggles during ralies especially by someone who makes him work. anderson also maybe nervous or tired making a lot of errors.

well done djokovic.
