    Djoker or Murray or whoever beats Nadal. Let's go.

    Venus needs to just focus on doubles at this point. Her singles career as a relevant competitor is over.

    The Djoker hurt himself today but was able to finish it out. Took a strange fall on his shoulder. Hope he's alright.

    Anyone but Nadal.

    With the World Cup on I forgot Wimbledon even started, probably wont watch but i'll check out the results.

    Djoker has to redeem himself, especially after he got smirched badly by Murray last year. He's lost 5 of the 6 grand slam finals.

    Agreed

    Murray or Federer and I'll be pleased. I don't know much about the women's event these days. Sharapova I suppose is back on form.

    A lot of the top people have done out. Federer to win then retire as GOAT.

    the ladies semifinals are interesting. Halep - Bouchard and Kvitova - Safarova. Halep is no3 in the WTA but very young. Kvitova already won the W.

    Remains to be seens, but i'll be watching.

    With Nadal out I guess I'll root for Federer, he can still take out Djokovic

    Any low-seed Cinderella longshots emerged, yet? It's always fun every year waiting to see if one like Tsonga pops up.

    The men's tennis game is so top heavy that Cinderella's are near impossible these days. You gotta beat Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Ferrer, Tsonga, Federer, Wawrinka, Del Potro, and numerous other talents. Raonic and Dimitrov aren't even cinderellas, since they were ranked 8th and 11th. Plus, everyone knows Raonic is a danger to anyone with his serve on a fast surface. Dimitrov at 11th in the semis is the closest to a Cinderalla there is, but he's likely losing to Djokovic or Raonic/Federer winner.

    I don't know if you guys remember, but Sherdog had a thread about a teenage, DD tennis player getting a breast reduction to aide her tennis career. Turns out it was the right move, since Simona Halep was in the finals of the French and is in the Semis of a very winnable Wimbledon.
