Wimbledon 2011

Guest ~Zoe~

Recommended Posts

Wimbledon kicks off this Monday and hopes are high for Andy Murray. Also hopes are high the weather will hold, but maybe looking at a 3rd week with Rain showers looming.

who does everyone want to win Wimbledon, and who do people think will win Wimbledon?


Want: Andy Murray

Dark Horse: Andy Roddick (Can never discount him from Wimbledon, and although his form (Queens aside) has been terrible, I think he is still a massive contender)

Think: Roger Federer (Nadal looks tired, plus i see on Eurosport he went back to Majorca, and is training on clay courts, although he will be back at the tail end of this week, i just dont see him as being fit enough to win)

Well considering his performance in Queens, I'm not sure how successful Andy Roddick will be!

Andy Murray will do well but I don't think he will win...again! :P

Nadal and Federer are just too good!

They'll be in the final again, they're the best male tennis players out there at the moment!

Murray will only have a chance of winning if one or more of them is beaten (highly unlikely) or bows out!

They are just on a different level to him completely!

Looking forward to Wimbledon I must say!

I watch it every year! :D

I wonder if the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge will make an appearance at the semi-final or final...? :wub:

^ I know, I think Andy Murray will do well, I reckon he will get to the semi final like last year - don't think he will win.

Can't wait ... roll on Monday! Men's Champ from the following please - Roddick, Federer, Men's Champ from the following please - Roddick, Federer, Djokovic or Nadal.

Can't wait for Wimbledon to start :) Really looking forward to John Isner and Nicolas Mahut meeting in the first round, after their record breaking match at last years tournament it will be interesting to see who comes out on top this time round.

As for the winner of the mens title it will probably be either Nadal and Federer but i really hope someone else wins as it gets a bit boring if it's that predictable every year.

The womens title, i would like to see either Maria Sharapova or Vera Zvonareva win this year.

Roll on Monday :)

Like everyone, i really hope Andy Murray does well, i dont think he will win (although i would love him to) im thinking the quarters or semi's maybe :)

If not Murray, i really hope for a Nadal win, he is just an amazing player (and cute) :P

Yes, I thought that too, shame about the first set.

Good match for Murray, sort of wish the other guy kept up his standard but in the end Murray outplayed him.

That match point was just ridiculous.

Tuesday schedule according to piers newberry

- Centre: Serena, Federer, Djokovic. Ct1: Roddick, Wozniacki, Soderling. Ct3: Isner-Mahut fourth on

Watched mostly the ladies singles matches yesterday. Have to say that Alison Riske really gave Vera Zvonareva a run for her money and when they were tied at 3-3 in the last set i thought Riske was going to beat her. Also watched the Francesca Schiavone v Jelena Dokic match and saw bits of Rafael Nadal v Michael Russell.

Looking forward to John Isner v's Nicolas Mahut & Anna Chakvetadze v's Maria Sharapova later today.
