The Wimbledon Thread

Wimbledon has got off to a weird start with Nadal out already.

Who's your money on? Would love to see Andy Murray do it but I just can't see it.

Re: Wimbledon 2013

Well, now that Federer's out as well as a few other seeds, the UK press are going to go batshit crazy and crown Murray as champion... that's the normal form... ho hum. Nevermind the chaps who played so well to beat top players, hey?

I think Djokovic is still the favourite, even in the most jingoistic UK press.

Re: Wimbledon 2013

Crazy day yesterday no? Seven withdrawals due to injury and Federer out in round 2. I hope the guy who beat him goes a lot further, just so we can have another good look at his missus .

Re: Wimbledon 2013

Hello.
Does anyone know of a nice place in Zurich to watch the final on Sunday? I'm thinking somewhere to book a table, have a few drinks, hopefully outside.
Thanks!

Wimbledon not so exciting this year. I switched to Emerdale or CSI on the other channel

It's got to be Andy Murray, despite "the curse of Cameron"!

Re: Wimbledon 2013

I don't like how he's behaving.. way too much aggression which is not pointing to the game, but rather yelling around..

Congratulations, Andy Murray! I won't be surprised if that becomes Sir Andrew Murray by the end of the day...

Re: Wimbledon 2013

Great achievement. Technically speaking DJokovic wasn't playing his best. Suspect that last match against Del Potro worn him out a bit. That semi was exciting.

Glad that there is a new champion Andy Murray

Re: Wimbledon 2013

Er, what, did Murray make it to the finals then?

Edit: just checked the news and apparently he won. Never would have believed that.
