    Already day one has it's fair share of dramatics. Federer cruised into round two but wow Azarenka had a bad time



    It's just painful to watch

    Screw Murray. It's all about Novak now!

    The day before Wimbledon started Murray said hes looking forward to it but wished he had an easier path, and wasn't in the same side of the draw as Fed and Nadal....

    bam.

    Well the women's side couldn't possibly get less interesting. Seriously, it's been about as bad as the NBA compared to the WNBA... Other than the Williams sisters when they're healthy there are no good female tennis players. And I have to say, I'm not even sure if the William's sisters are that good or have just been playing against zero competition for the past however many years...

    Looks like its Djokovic vs del Potro, and Murray vs Janowicz in the semi's. I'd love for Murray to bring a Wimbledon title to England... would be fun.

    Murray's Scottish, not English.

    I think Murray is going to lose today as Janowicz is looking too strong and he beat Murray already this year.

    Many people seem to make that mistake. Personally I'm hoping Djokovic to win tomorrow though I'd prefer if somebody else entirely was in the final to win it. Murray does deserve to win Wimbledon at some point but I know that BBC will be intolerable for the next 10 years and bring it up at every and any chance they get. If Henman won it a few years ago then I wouldn't have minded because Tim is much more likeable than Andy. Andy's just so boring off court and seems to have little to no personality whenever a camera is around. At least Novak is seen to have fun occasionally and actually smiles during interviews.

    It's me nitpicking but the player's personality is more important to me than their ability when it comes to who I support. And whether or not I'll hate the BBC afterwards

    Yeah that's us Americans for ya, lol. I at least do know the difference between Britain and England.

    Anyway, I understand completely what you mean about the personality thing. However noting that, I don't know how you could possibly root for Federer ever..

    Congratulations to Andy Murray. The post match celebration and trophy presentation was really a cool moment to watch. Watching the crowd all over the place just erupt in joy was awesome.

    But Fed is cool and awesome and fun

    I understand the crowd's excitement but at some point they needed to just shut up. The last point in particular when some women started yelling after Djokovic's return because they thought it was out bothered me much more than it should have. I'm surprised Murray managed to hit is shot in after that especially when he's complaining about somebody in the lower seats using a fan on themselves during a point

    I'm just happy Djokovic didn't win Wimbledon. Congrats Andy, but I personally would have liked to see Federer win one more.

    Strange not having any tennis to watch this morning Too little tennis is shown on TV here in the States.
    Oh well at least it's a short wait until the US Open. And the Winston-Salem Open is the week before that.

    The logo does not include this seasons (2013) 2 wins added to the streak!

    The Washington Kastles's 34 game winning streak was snapped this week they even past the 1971-1972 L.A. Lakers winning streak.



    On a side note: They were 14 wins shy of the USA Professional Sports Record winning streak of 48 games, held by the SD Sockers (2009)
