    Default Wimbledon 2008

    Don't know if any of y'all are tennis fans.....kinda expecting to hear *crickets* in response to this, but what the hell....

    the Williams sisters are playing each other in the Wimbledon finals today,
    9 am Central Time. Aaack! Can't wait!

    BTW - the older Williams won. She wanted it just a little bit more...

    Federer V. Nadal....coming up in 2 minutes....been looking forward to this since last years Wimbly Final...and the thrashing Nadal gave Fed at the French final only makes this final sweeter!

    Thank God Almighty,

    after more than 4 gut-wrenching hours.....RAFA finally put an end to it!

    greatest match, no doubt.

    It's hard to say the greatest. I've seen so many great matches. But, damn that was one of the best certainly.

    I haven't been this entertained by tennis in so long.

    I love the game, playing it and watching it. Two great champions today for sure.

    Easily the best Wimbly final in the last 28 years....as much drama and heart as the Borg v. Mac '80 epic.
