tennispro268910:42pm: seeding battle of the sexes
am i the only one who noticed that the women's semi's have teh 1-2-3-4 seeds but the mens quarters have 1-7-14-X-6-18-22-2. does anyone else notice how much men's seeding gets like blown away. the 3rd seed (roddick) lost in the third round along with 4th seed(nalbandian). how is it that the women's seeds are dead on but the men's seeds are only anchored by the top 2 and everyone else is a total toss up?

mrscaptainoats9:03pm: Question
Hi, everyone (assuming that all have not abandoned the community at the end of the tournament)!

I was wondering if anyone (maybe someone who taped it or has amazing memory) knows the order of points in the last game of the Men's Final?

To make myself more clear, say, a game was scored at 15-40. I would consider the "order" being, hypothetically, 15-0, 15-15, 15-30, 15-40, game.

Thanks in advance!

tennispro268910:02am: I HATE THIS SPLIT COVERAGE!

NBC starts these matches so late that i don't see them live and i can "watch" the match on-line but i cant really see it. Why cant they just show the live matches and not the ones that are already over with. I mean if you are reading this then you have internet and can just long on the "Wimbledon Central" thing and just check the matches that have already ended.

Just wanted to vent a bit. Sorry if i annoyed anyone.

I have finally made rules for this community. Check them out here.

No more spoilers without LJ cuts. :D
tennispro26896:36pm: anti-USA wimbledon...somewhat
OK there is something that was bothering me when i watched the S. Williams VS J Craybas match. First round was USA VS USA then USA VS ITA then USA VS USA and now USA VS USA. if you can't understand this what i am trying to say is that automatically 3 american women are gone. It was like a crash course to get rid of all the american women as fast as possible. Maybe this happens every year but i have never noticed it before.

match resultsCollapse )

Thankfully we have been able to avoid massive amounts of rain unlike last year.

_youdid11:46pm: Another newbie......
Hi everbody!

So let me first introduce to you....
Well I'm Judith, 17 years old and live in the Netherlands.
The reason why I'm joining this community is I love watching tennis and then having a review about it (after seeying a match)
As you can see my english is not that very good. So if you see mistakes or you don't understand me, just tell me.

Anyway too bad Murray has lost from Nalbandian. It's not that I don't like Nalbandian. But I support ''outsiders'' players more. So I guess we've got another fresh "new young talent" besides Gasquet.
Current Mood: calm

Even if Gimmelstob loses to Hewitt, i've been very impressed with him at this tournament.
sideshowmatt2:22am: Wimbledon Train Information
Hello there y'all! Now I'm not a big fan of the tennis, but I am a generally helpful soul, and as I work for the train company that runs most of the mainline services through Wimbledon station I thought I would post some information for anyone travelling to Wimbledon on the train (particularly from the South coast area) over the next few days....

lottie_doyle1:24am: JC Ferrero playing tomorrow and I’m VERY nervous about it cos he’s playing on Court 2- the “Graveyard of the Seeds”. It could go either way- but i hope he wins, not only because he's a beautiful player but also because i want to see him pla Federer in the 4th round.... i'd pay a lot of money to see that match live.... any thoughts?

iceyfresh6:40pm: Discuss 3 & 4
Which is the bigger shocker? The ousting of Henin-Hardenne or Angela Haynes making Serena struggle?

Is Sharapova overrated and does she get a "free ride" because of her looks? (This is referring to her advertisments, sponsorships, media attention, etc. not on the court)

Quote from a Safin interview, as taken from the maratsafin community:

Q. How hard is it to break a racquet on grass?

MARAT SAFIN: You break the court faster than you break the racquet, that's for sure."
iceyfresh12:05pm: Discuss 2:
How well do you think the British favorite, Tim Henman, who has never advanced past the semi-finals, will compete this year?
iceyfresh11:00am: Who do you think will win?
Federer vs. Roddick
Roddick vs. Hewitt
Hewitt vs. Ancic
Gasquet vs. Ancic
Gasquet vs. Hewitt
Roddick vs. Ancic
Federer vs. Gasquet
Federer vs. Hewitt
Ferrero vs. Gasquet
Ferrero vs. Ancic

BOLD the ones you think would dominate given those matches. (This is purely speculation)

Do you think Federer will match Sampras' record of 7 Wimbledon titles?

Maria Sharapova will deploy a dazzling new weapon in her defence of the Ladies' Singles title at this year's Wimbledon Championships - tennis shoes encrusted with 18 carat gold specks. "It shines unbelievably. Hopefully it will distract my opponents a little bit," she joked at the traditional Champions' pre-tournament press conference...
