Great match... Venus saving all those break points was amazing. I think they both played well, but it was Venus' day. I love Serena, too, but at Wimbledon I have to root for Venus. Looking forward to their doubles.
Tomorrow should be a battle, with Nadal and Federer. I don't know why I've never liked Federer as much as I should. Maybe because he's been so dominant for so long (except at the French). But he's grown on me. Fabulous player. Nadal's gonna give him a run for his money, though. Beautiful to watch, Nadal. I think Nadal's stronger, at this point, but Federer's more consistent, and has the edge on grass, I think.
I'm lucky to have the U.S. Open right down the road from me, so to speak, here in Queens. I went for the first time last year and loved it. I will definitely be there again this year.
I'm a bit fickle when it comes to tennis - I follow Wimbledon because it's on the BBC (and this year because I'm recovering from surgery and have little else to do) but otherwise don't keep up with it. If I lived in Queens that might change (lucky Pips)!
I didn't smell a fix and thought they both fought hard. It could easily have gone to 3 sets, and it's a shame it didn't, from a crowd point of view.
Should be a great match tomorrow, but unfortunately the weather forecast isn't good. It'll be great to see someone give Federer a run for his money. I appreciate he's great player, but perfect tennis can be boring to watch if the match is unbalanced.
