Not a loser YET!

He is young and has time to improve, and he is the first player we've had for decades who seems to have the mental strength.

Strangely, it seems to be physical exhaustion which beat him today, and Nadal is both quick and clever with enormous stamina.

I think it's a case of "Watch This Space". It takes years to develop a champion and he's not there yet, but he has those years available.

Yes I saw a bit about Liam on our local news last night when he beat the World No 1 junior.

Today he went one better and reached the semi-finals.

like Arthur I missed it.....busy looking after the grandchildren as the schools here were closed because of the teachers involvement in the strike.

hi

Am I alone in noticing that in this year's Wimbledon there seems to far more challenges to the line-umpires' calls ??

To me it shows that the standard of line calling has deteriorated over the past few years.

After all the judges are only watching one line each and yet there appear to be some many wrong calls.

I know that in cricket when I was playing all umpires were "blind" !!! especially when I was judged lbw but the line judges at the tennis appears to be much worse.

PS just seen it in paper that if Murray gets to final, tickets will be as much as £40,000 each.!!!!!! Guess I won't be going !!!

Cheers

Seems to me that two things happened - the fall of the Iron Curtain which gave freedom and the opportunity of financial wherewithal to Eastern European players to participate internationally without the restrictions that were formerly placed on them, and the rest of the world began to follow the examples of the US and Australia in sports training and education.

And it's great!

IMHO, YMMV etc, etc.

Agreed, Arthur. Back in 40s-mid70s, there were Americans and Australians; and nobody else but Santana, Kodes, Drobny once each in the Men's ~~ haven't checked Women's but my recollection {Brough, Hart, Connolly, Evett, Smith, Goolagong...} is similar. It all opened out with Borg, but still great Americans around ~~ McEnroe, Connors, Sampras; only Hewitt one-time winner from Oz.

Suddenly now there are few seeds of those 2 nationalities [Roddick, Fish, Williams sisters, Matteck-Sands {who she?!} of US; no men, & Stosur & Gajdosova, only women from Oz (+ ex champion Hewitt & Tomic appearing impressively at 18 y-o)]. But far more Europeans, with Chinese women creeping in, & one of them winning French Open.

Very interesting transformation. What happened, eh?

I have never seen movement and raw innate physical and forceful strategy like Djokovic displayed today on a tennis court although I have seen some in the past that came close.

I have seen such prowess on a squash court but these tall skinny guys couldn't play squash worth crap for the most part. I do like the competition but it ain't squash.

Yeah, thread creep but at least it's not WAY off the thread.

I am not bored with Wimbledon. I was frustrated to have to open up different threads with essentially the same thing. Don't call me bored when I am being lazy.

Now I am frustrated to see all of the Anti-Wimbledon and pro Wimbledon stuff on the same thread, now being combined with anti-discussionism.

Because most Brits are as bored shitless with your Show-Biz Razamatazz of an Election as you appear to be with our major tennis championship (in fact, the tennis championship that is regarded by most, players and fans alike, as the world's major championship).

As Arthur says, what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander - you don't want multiple 'Wimbledon' threads, and that's fine. I don't want multiple US Presidential Election threads clogging up the BS section either.

That's all.

Well now you have the thread that was for talking about Wimbledon combined with the the thread for those who wish it was almost over.

This was Joe's doing, for the life of me I don't understand why. I guess he just did a keyword search.

In fairness to Backwoodsman myself, I see no problem with him asking to have the threads all combined. I am just saying why I don't think they should be.

Arthur, I am not criticizing you now, I wasn't then. I liked your suggestion of having a Wimbledon 2011 UK where you could report your results and talk about the games.

I think that combining that with someone else's "Nearly half over" thread was .... unfortunate.

I'm pretty sure wanting to talk about the game and celebrating that the tournament will end soon, are in most people's minds, two separate topics.

That speaks to Backwoodsmans request of combining all of the US Presidential Election threads in one place. Obama's trouble turning around the Economy is certainly a different topic from Romney's Mormonism, which is different from Palin's celebrity, which is different from Bachman's lunacy, which is different from Rand Paul's lunacy... etc.
