Indeed, and I can testify UNDER OATH as to the factuality of your statement! :)
 
Nole off to an American specialist about his elbow... I doubt we will be seeing Nole any time soon on a tennis court.

No kidding. Feds knows that if he has a solid return day, he's winning in straights. If not, then he'll have to grind it out, move Berdych as much as he can, keep the ball deep into the corners as often as possible and let the pressure do it's thing on Thomas. Then hope Cilic and SamQ go 5!

He will need to stay on the baseline and keep the ball low ( he needs spin day) and he has been doing great job doing this. If he played back and the ball went little high to the strike zone of these tall players Federer will be dismissed.
 
Of course he needs to return well.

ESPN decided 4 years ago that for the sake of 'clarity' that Chris McKendrie (host) would be referred on air as 'Chris' and Chris Evert would be called "Chrissie"... and they spoke about it too...

OK, I didn't know that. Still, 'Chrissie' makes Evert sound like an ingenue.
 
As if.

Muguruza beat down Serena in a major final and that's a rare achievement; she'll be a rough day at the office for Venus.

Nole off to the US to get a definitive MRI and consult on the elbow to finally know what he's dealing with long term.
 
His summer hardcourt season looking doubtful, for now.

You know things are getting desperate when TT, Whisper etc all have to try and reverse jinx fed and hope for the worst (while fake praising him for the unknown future). 18 > 15. Think you better recognize.

Just giving some love here on RST to Muguruza... seems only a few are giving her the props she deserves for the brilliant, aggressive tennis she has fashioned out there during this entire Wimbledon tournament.
 
She's looking for 'The Williams Double' on Saturday. :)
 
Can she be one of the only players ever to put a beat down on both Williams sisters in major finals?
 
Should be a compelling final.
 
FINALLY! (hope so at least)

He was probably asked by Kim to focus on family matters. The calisthenics probably hurt his hip? Just kidding.

You think Kim "asks" the capon to do anything? He receives orders and follows them.

Wasn't that three or four years ago? Perhaps she has recovered from the ailment.

Players like Konta wouldn't have been top 20 in the 90s.
It is as simple as that.

I'm not competing against invented numbers..
50/56 films before 1940, with some really obscure hardcore stuff.
 
I might have believed you if you had commented on the films but no.

Oh, by the way, just like Virat 'Viv Richards' Kohli looking bamboozled against Amir in the recent Champions Trophy.

The thick-skinned fellow has moved on from that blooper and now is focusing on victims to attack.

How about Andy's fake injury when he was running like a rabbit retrieving drop shots?
