Anyone watching?

Good game on with Serena Williams, she won the first game 6-2, and in the second game she was down 5-1 and has pulled it back to 5-4.

Serena now on the floor crying, looks in pain. Cramp in her calf i think, hope she can carry on.

Serena is struggling and looks in pain, she is limping and can hardly walk. First game 6-2 and the second game is now 6-6.

**** this man

the rain delays are making things unfair for players like Nadal.

Roddick and Federer are getting a big advantage.
as if Roger needed more help.

By one dimensional do you mean he can just play on grass? I'm not sure, I just started watching tennis recently so I don't know how those terms are applied to tennis players.

Either way, this Wimbeldon blows for Nadal's side. Before today they had to win 5 matches in 6 days to be the champ, now thunderstorms halted play again. Federer hasn't palyed in like 4 days or something like that.

Looking forward to henin and serena, just hope serena isn't so over dramatic again.

Yeh, the rain has made it a total joke. The players can't get into the game because it is soon stopped.

With all due respect to one of my favourate posters, Goran at his prime was more talented than anyone that's ever stepped on court. Tennis is a sport wherein focus for a full match or a full tournament is one of the most important aspects a player can possess.

Goran at 18 almost beat Boris Becker at his absolute unbeatable prime at Wimbledon defendeing his title. Goran practically beat Andre and Pete in the finals. He finally beat a PRIME Pat Rafter and Tim Henman(both not easy tasks) to finally win Wimbledon.

As with Marat Safin and guys like Henri Laconte, Goran's game was one of the most brilliant of all time. With the right focus and discipline, they all could have been GOAT. Safin on a good day can still handle Federer anytime. They same way a 23rd ranked Venus or even a 100th ranked Serena (at the aussie open) can beat anyone in history on a good day.

Roddick's game is **** compared to Goran's. Goran's serve was better and most importantly, he was a NATURAL vollier. Something A-rod will never, ever be. In addition, Goran's groundstrokes were far superior to Roddicks as he had both touch and penetrating shots wherein Roddick simply grinds his baseline points.

By one dimensional, he means that he has nothing else to his game but a powerful serve.

As I mentioned in the previous post, Goran was in NO way one dimensional.

Hope Nadal can pull this out and take the whole thing. Gonna be tough though with Roger getting all these days off.

Still hoping the Williams brothers get crushed. God I hate them.
