    Ahaha. Yea, well, they say it's a very painful injury but nothing serious. Her next tournament isn't until August 3rd anyway so this should not affect her schedule. :D


    Now, time to watch Federer dominate whoever he is playing. Some dude named Ivo :p

    I don't know how much that will mean in a Wimbledon Final.

    That's why I try to wake up early and watch the live matches, as much as possible. It's hard sometimes though.

    And Venus absolutely obliterated Safina :eek:

    Yeah, Venus was the favourite but I don't think anyone expected 6-1 6-0.

    It does, but so does pressure. And the pressure on Murray will be immense if he reaches the Wimbledon Final... Federer has shown already that he can handle the pressure in big Finals, Murray hasn't...

    let's not forget that neither Federer nor Murray are in the Finals yet, so speculating about past stats etc is rather moot, IMHO.

    I am beyond frustrated at NBC now. Please guys, refrain from posting the Roddick-Murray result until NBC finally shows it to us in the US :mad:

    What an amazing match by Roddick! Jesus christ, where did he learn how to play like that?
