    Djokovic is not that impressive a grass court player IMO, Murray has some queens club titles. The Olympics, the final last year. And prior to last years final, and losing to superb Roddick in 09, his Wimbledon campaigns are halted by Nadal. He also took out Djokovic at the Olympics last year...which was held at Wimbledon.

    You're right about that. Djokovic is a great hard court player. He battles and defends really well on clay and grass, but he lacks the same offensive ability that he does on hard court. Admittedly, Djokovic lost to Murray in the US Open Final last season.

    Djokovic is the king of Australia these days, but if you look back just a mere handful of years, you'll see a player who wilted in the heat against Roddick and others.

    Haha...i remember pre 11 Djokovic...he lost to tsonga 5 straight times (in one match he got so mad in a tie break he hit a 187 KMH FH which was his only point in the TB). He retired due to heat against Roddick in 09, lost to tsonga in '10 AO,Melzer etc. There is a running joke that he just needs to retire from a USO match to have the career retirement grand slam.

    Neither is Nadal, but both of them have won the title (funny thing, that's only grass title Nole has right?)

    How many grass titles are there anyway? Not much, and that's why there aren't really many "impressive grass court players"...

    Oh, and Murray is British, there's no way he's winning Wimbledon

    Re: The Tennis Thread- Wimbledon (24/06-07/07)

    Nadal made 5 straight (06,07,08,10,11) wimbledon finals, and won 2 of them. He has a queens title under his belt as well. Djokofic has 3 finals, one title. There's at least 3 possible grass court titles, queens/halle after the FO, Eastbourne and some other one the weak after than, then Wimbledon.

    Some players (Federer,Sampras,Jmac) are just good on the grass ;-;

    He's Scottish! so i give him a shot~

    We'll see. Nothing beats retiring against Roddick, a man who had to wear at least three different shirts almost every match.

    Murray sort of won Wimbledon, but it was only the Olympics and it was two out of three, I believe.

    Heh, this is why people hate upsets i guess. Stak fails to back up his historical win, goes out to Melzer in 4.

    Stak was up the break in the third, but then choked it away and went away in the fourth.

    Lisicki has played very well so far, although Serena's been poor.

    ---------- Post added at 09:15 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:04 AM ----------

    Lisicki, as expected, has had a drop in form this set.

    Sabine Lisicki stuns World No.1 Serena Williams snapping her 34 match win streak 62 16 64.

    This tournament has given me a headache lol, bloody hell. It's all anyone's game I guess, for the women at least. Well done Lisicki; she had a solid game plan, faultered a bit in the second set but recovered well to take the match.

    Djokovic and Del Potro crush Berdych and Ferrer, respectively, and Murray double faults to hand Verdasco the first set.

    ---------- Post added at 12:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:35 AM ----------

    Murray has the lead in the third, but who knows where we'll end up.

    ---------- Post added at 12:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:33 PM ----------

    Verdasco sort of gives away the end of the third. He'll serve first to start the fourth.

    ---------- Post added at 01:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:40 PM ----------

    We're going the distance. Verdasco completely went away in the later stages of the third and fourth sets.

    ---------- Post added at 02:00 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:28 PM ----------

    4-4 now. Verdasco had 0-30 in that game, but some poor returning cost him.

    ---------- Post added at 02:11 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:00 PM ----------

    What is the crowd doing make so much noise during the point? That's entirely classless.

    ---------- Post added at 02:11 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:11 PM ----------

    Murray breaks, but I do have to wonder if the crowd didn't affect things at the deuce point.

    ---------- Post added at 02:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:11 PM ----------

    The crowd's noises during key points on Verdasco's serve late in the fourth and fifth sets really leaves me with a bad taste in the mouth after this win for Murray.

    People like to say the british crowd is the best but they can be nasty....this gives me flashbacks to Murray VS Gasquet in 08...cheering for his double faults and jeering when he's trying to concentrate.

    I'm in a rather bad state but I couldn't help watching Radwanska vs. Lisicki. To be honest I thought she would loose but oh my god, she really did it! Can't believe we finally have a female player after Steffi who can win a Grand Slam title. Just one more step please, she really deserves it

    No matter what I'm so gonna watch that match on Saturday

    ---------- Post added at 06:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:18 PM ----------

    lulz looking at who Bartoli had to win against is quite funny, compared to Lisicki
