One and three. :)
 
Off to find some highlights.

Federer was putting some serious stick on his volleys!

Good quality highlights from the final: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_h8RCvoofY
 
And yes, Federer has been volleying impeccably throughout the tournament. Today, he found the rest of his game as well.

I liked this point. It's as if he has all the time in the world when he
really doesn't. Beautiful reading. And reaaaally smooth, STRONG legs
picking up the volley. Rafa woulda broken himself to pieces right there.

Honestly, who hasn't watched it, missed a lot.
 
Lopez-Cilic
46 76(2) 76(8)
 
Both played well, Lopez is in great grasscourt form reaching
Hertogenbosch final last week losing to Pouille. And Cilic
probably made a strategic mistake by not being even more
aggressive after he secured first set.
 
But never mind that, what impressed me was the level of
non-clowning throughout the match and especially in that third
set tiebreak which was astonishing.
 
Both guys came up with spectacular shots under pressure, won some
fine points, even when out of positions, just no clowning
whatsoever in the most difficult of situations.
 
It's impossible, incomprehensible, unimaginable to have Tsonga,
Monfils, Berdych types playing like this.

Yes, great match by two terrific grasscourters.
PeteWasLucky <waleed.khedr@gmail.com>: Jun 25 08:50AM -0700

He is one of very few I like to watch.
Great serve motion, volleys, slice.

That final set tiebreak was epic! Great grasscourt play by both guys and well-deserved win for Lopez. Probably the only Spanish player whose game I have liked (and an anomaly like Stefan Edberg was in Sweden, though not as good).
PeteWasLucky <waleed.khedr@gmail.com>: Jun 25 06:53AM -0700

I hope he is not in Federer's side of the draw.

Agree. I watched him after you mentioned him, and he is looking very dangerous. Do you know what his seeding would be at Wimbledon?

Cilic is declining. 2014-15-16.
 
Take a look at his Wimbledon, USO performances.
 
2014
Wim, QF loss to Djokovic, winner
USO, won himself.
 
2015
Wim, QF loss to Djokovic, winner
USO, SF loss to Djokovic, winner
 
2016
Wim, QF loss to Federer, loser
USO, 3rd loss to Sock, loser.
 
 
 
He's even struggling now vs aged Lopez in Queen's final.

I reckon 7th?
 
He should face seed #2 in QF?

Meh. I'm not so sure how dangerous Cilic will be for Federer? Cilic's having a hard time putting Lopez away in Queens.
 
I think Kyrgios if he's actually trying would be more dangerous for Federer and then of course Nadal, if he makes the final.

I actually don't know how dangerous Nadal will be on grass because he actually won 5 matches in 5 years since 2011. I also don't know how dangerous Cilic will be and that is not because Cilic lacks ability but more about which 1 will turn up in a match. When Cilic is on he can simply blow any player off the court. As talented as Kyrgios is I just don't get the sense he is as dangerous as Cilic.

I'm talking about IF Nadal makes the final!
 
There are only a few players I see that can be dangerous to Federer at Wimbledon. Maybe Cilic if he's zoning and Federer is off, maybe Kyrgios if he's playing seriously, Djokovic if he magically finds great form and then Nadal IF he's good enough to make the final.

Also, maybe Raonic if he's somehow zoning.

I remember he put goals for himself this year to be in top 5 or maybe top 10, I believe top 5.
 
He is very dangerous when he is determined.
 
If Federer didn't play him last year in Wimbledon he would have great chance to win the title.
Court_1 <olympia0000@yahoo.com>: Jun 25 05:21AM -0700

Probably.
PeteWasLucky <waleed.khedr@gmail.com>: Jun 25 05:41AM -0700

Could be but this is grass not clay.

And how do the people who manage those CUs earn their money?
Right, they sell your data to the FBI and CIA! So when you continue to reveal their 9/11 conspiracy they are able to get you at your balls!!!
