I want Tim =(
In italy theres a phone tarrif called Tim.
I love tennis! Its great!
Jamie's in the final! And there's gossip about him and his partner! How exciting!
COME ON JAMIE! AND JELENA!
(andy's bro) is in the final of the mixed doubles later with jelena jankovic. and the papers reckon they are having sexytime with each other.
I dont know whether to support federer or nadal. I might flip a coin.
I love tim.
the other semi is still in the final set.
Jonas Bjorkman / Alicia Molik won !
Clement / LLodra are french last hope...
Federer and Nadal are both bloody amazing.
This is going to be a good final
Federer will win.
I hate Nadal !
i'm gonna play virtua tennis 3 instead.
This game is more interesting than i thought it would be. i thought federer would just destroy nadal, but nadal's doing well :). now i've said that, it'll turn out to be a three-setter...
He still has a chance i think.... but he has to win this second set. Im routing for the underdog even though i dont mind either.
another tie-break! so want nadal to win this.
i never saw Nadal winning the tie break though.
too nervout on tie-breaks. but then again, who wouldn't? apart from federer that freaking machine.
it just seems when it comes down to the few crucial points he struggles.
COME ON NADAL!
and federer swore! COME ONE NADAL!!!!
yeah it;'s ace. can'e believe the oh-so-ool federer is rattled!! and he's broken him twice!!!
I hate Federer so SO much
but he swore! tennis players arent meant to do that. and everyone likes seeing the infaliable lose it!
dont know if he can last though! i wish he didnt hurt his knee, worst possible timing! just when it looked like he might do it.
what bad luck. argh, feder is back. i can't stand him!!!!!!!!!!
cos I like seeing records being made, but i want him to lose cos hes a bit of a smug twat.
twat. i'm glad someone finally sees that. looks like he's abt to win again though :(.
but this has gripped me!
Nadal vs Federer
I like his lip curl and left-handedness. Less of a point winning robot too. Bt at least Federer isn't as bland as Pete bloody-boring-yawnfest Sampras.
I like both players but Nadal is clearly the more pragmatic and methodical.
this is fantastic. i so hope federer wins.
fucking insane genius.
I think he's awesome.
pretty much the best sportsman i've seen?
him or shane warne i think...
That's today's name drop done.
This is INCREDIBLE.
best final i've seen in years.
was actually as good as anything i've seen for ages.
i love how federer gets angry when he loses things and then just plays out of his skin.
cant help but admire it.
i don't think we'll ever see how good he could be, cos there's not enough people who can push him like this.
the two are much closer than in previous years, but federer is moving on again!
but i think nadal is the only player remotely near, so he just isn't being pushed to achieve what he might.
which is a shame.
hes so good and comes up against someone who is just unreal.
in their 12 previous matches Nadal has won 8 of them.
Just not on grass....
i feel sorry for federer on clay. if nadal wasn't around he'd have the grand slam by now and there'd be little questioning his standing in the annals of history...
why should he be considered as such? If theres someone better than him on clay.
overall federer is better than nadal. and pretty much everyone to have played the game.
but if you cant win on clay, you cant win a grand slam.
as he thoroughly deserves one.
thats the whole point, grand slams mean you are the best on all surfaces. and hes not. although he is amazing.
but it's not like he's bad on it. i'm just think he's the best player by a mile and it's a shame he might not be recognised because he may never win the french.
you cant take that away from him. but to win a grand slam you have to be the best player all round on all surfaces. I think its just good thats theres someone who can challenge federer.
he just unbeatable on grass.
federer looked like that guy from streetfighter doing his celebration pose.
He looks beaten though i must say.
fucking federer is such a poncy twat. last year that stupid little suit with his initials on, this year all his uniforms are gold and he's got a bag with four golden trophies on it. tosser.
but he is brilliant.
what a match though!
he's incredibly boring.
his range of shots and skill is breathtaking.
he deserves it.
argh, i hate federer :(.
I love Federer !
doesn't that get on your nerves?! today he was moaning abt hawkeye- just a bad sportsman. and nadal was injured today which means federer could sneak back into the game and destroy him- it's not fair! i think nadal could have won this if it wasn't for that injury. really.
it came just as i thought Nadal was gonna do it!
Rafa will win it one day.
i hope so. as long as federer doesn't win again! haha, that sounds awful, but come on, someone's gotta break him at wimbledon! (although he did play superbly in the early rounds today). just wish he wasn't such a smug pig, and bad sportsman at times. it's so off-putting!! at least he's beatable in other grandslams.
i like him!
I wanted Rafa to win
I love Roger Federer like a fat kid loves cake.
Can't wait for the mixed doubles now!
pretty much the greatest sportsman of our generation?
Gotta feel sorry for Nadal though.
He's just amazing to watch. Normally it's boring when someone wins constantly, but Federer has finesse, and grace. And he's a nice guy too.
she's pretty much promised him sex...
if she had a smaller nose, I might consider taking her up on that offer
you would anyway.
there's something about playing tennis which makes girls more appealing
see also:most Eastern European female tennis players (Vaidisova and Sharapova esp.), and even the girl playing with Bjorkman now
in the tennis player thread.. but i forgot her name now.
I want MORE!!!
she looks about 12
I <3 women's tennis
anyone know why everyone just broke out in laughter?
pretty much the greatest sportsman of our generation?"
Nah, it's Micheal Schumacher or Lance Armstrong.
Only caught a bit of the final as I was watching live Tour De France so I shall now exit this thread.
and armstrong was blatantly a drug cheat.
right and right !
