I don't want Cilic.  I think he's a hothead.  Strangely I didn't like Roger years ago.  Now, He's old guard.  It's kind of like - I would always root for Martina or Chris over anyone younger.  Even when the torch should be passed - nah.  I want my girls.

Cilic only gets hot on occasion. Makes me wonder if he is doping again? I don't care for his game but Roger better be ready because Cilic will be ready on Sunday. Roger didn't look that great against Berdych today.

I saw most of the first set and thought Venus was playing well but DVR the rest. What happened to her in the 2nd set? This was her best chance to win a major. One writer pretty much said she isn't winning another major. I tend to agree. She should retire this year after the US Open. I mean what a way to go with two final appearances at majors. Venus just can't win 7 matches anymore. It is too much for her.

Roger better be ready? He was the 7-time Wimbledon champ and 18 grand slams total, and he hasn't lost a set.  Now make that the 8-time Wimbledon champ and 19 grand slams overall and didn't lose a set all tournament.  Of course he was ready. 😄  Roger is still playing great tennis at such an old age.

People complaining about Women's tennis, grumbling about equal prize money and claiming that women are the emotional ones (I'm looking at you, Djokovic:rolleyes:) need to STFU from here on out after today.

Lawd Cilic was a blubbering hot mess!:lol: He had a total meltdown!:lol: I thought I was watching Mardy Fish.:ph34r:

 

I really wonder if Murray will play the US Open. ESPN is pretty much saying Joker is out at the US Open. With the win Roger is at #3 with Nadal at #2 with Joker at #4 and Stan at #5 with all those points to defend at the US Open.

 

Should be an interesting summer hard court season and US Open.

So, Roger Federer wins the Australian Open and Wimbledon, and Rafael Nadal wins the French Open.... Is this 2017 or 2007?   :P

If only it were 2007. That year both Venus and Roger held the trophies aloft. Still gutted for Vee. I'm not even going to discuss that further. 

Congrats to Roger.

And can we stop with the big four already??

 

Roger 19

Rafa 15

Joker 12

 

 

Murray...a measly 3 with 2 being Wimbledon and lots of help from the tourney and the fans. Heck Stan has won 3 and lacks just 1 while Murray still lacks 2.

I'm not going to entertain talk about Venus' alleged impending retirement. Nobody knows sh*t.  As she said years ago, people have been trying to retire her for years!

 

People predicted she'd retire after she was diagnosed with Sjogren's in 2011 after she'd been playing with it since 2006!

People also suggested that Roger retire years ago and even last year, after knee surgery, people predicted he was done.

Yet, here he stands with two Majors.:huh:

Folks, it's a personal choice and really nobody's business.  If you don't want to watch tune out. There are several players that I know I don't watch. No big deal.
