Wimbledon has been interesting this year for both the men and women.  Lots of upsets, but the big shocker almost happened today as Novak fell down 2 sets before forcing a 5th set right before darkness suspended the match.

This Wimbledon men's final is off the hook so far.  Tied at one set each.  Both sets have gone to tiebreaker.

Djokovic is such a machine.  Just pulled away in those last two sets.  Great match to watch.  Too bad Novak gave away the French or we'd be looking at two potential Grand Slams in New York.

Tremendous match. It's remarkable what Roger can still do at 33. Djokovic was dominant in the final set and a half though.

As a result of a long rain delay, the final is actually on ESPN right now.  Novak up 2 sets to 1 and up a break in the 4th against Roger.

If Novak finishes this out, it will be the first time since 2002 that Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal has not won at least one major.  Novak would have 3 with Stan Wawrinka winning the other and would be the second time Novak has won 3 just missing out on the French each time.

If he wins this match and makes it no 10, wonder if he can actually overtake Nadal's 14 or even catch Federer's 17 in next 3 or 4 years? who would have thought that a couple of years back.

After getting beat over and over again, he strengthened up + refined skills + height adv  and now is considered the best tennis player in the world

I think there is a chance Andy Murray pulls the next "Djokovic" +  Federer and Nadal slowly fading

Question, why would someone create a thread about tennis on a blog for Celtics talk? It seems like a very nerdy topic. I imagine someone coming on Celticsblog for the first time and not coming back because one of the threads was about tennis mainly due to the lameness of breaking down tennis players.

You can avoid these threads if you don't like them. No one is putting a gun to your head to read it.

There are plenty of non-basketball threads on here.  It's a community blog centered around basketball but not "basketball only".  You've been around here long enough to realize that.

Valiant effort by Federer.  I'd love to see him get one more slam title before he retires. 

Yesterday he looked like he was the second best tennis player in the world.  I have so much respect for the way that he's accepted that he's not as dominant as he used to be, but he's still pretty darn good.  It just seems refreshing to me. 

I wouldn't mind seeing Roger play until he's 40.

It takes about 10 seconds to look at your posts page and see you have contributed to a thread about the best show on TV. That could really put some people off, coming here to talk about The Celtics and seeing one of the threads is about some mindless entertainment. Read a book!

And, really, you posit that tennis is lame as if it were some universal truth. Many people like tennis, myself included, and perhaps even the hypothetical visitor you imagine. They could even like tennis.

(and the thread was in an area called general sports....hmm)

At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

Nothing has changed, there have only been a handful of guys to watch in every era, the rest has always been rubbish to me.
