Cosmic justice, after Cilic got that first serve do-over at 6-6.
 
Won't last, but well done Querrey!

Querry is very relaxed guy.

But he lost the most important 1-3 points so far

Good data, for women and men.
 
If you stick to tennis and stop posting in political threads, you'd be a
top-5% contributor around here.

Bad UE from Cilic on next to last point, and BOOM....Sam wins
the set.
 
Reminds me of top flight professional chess, where the
tiniest of errors leads to disaster.
 
Excellent play from both players overall, though.

Seemed to affect Cilic more, though. Two wild errors to lose the set.

It's annoying Fed won the final 61 62(enthralling drama going on there) 60 BUT the ladies final is Mugu vs Venus and should have some real power hitting and this re-ignites the argument about equal prize money - surely the women's final will be a lot more interesting and quality to watch?

No she wasn't. She broke into the top 10 in Nov 2000, and was seeded #8
for Australia 2001 (QF). The following month (Feb 2001) she was
sidelined by a stress-fracture in her foot. By August she had
dropped out of the top 10, and ended the year at #74.

she's managing it so well she's got to a Wimbledon final at the age of 37 and showed no signs whatsoever of it, in any of her matches.

Fed got top shot at #1, he still whooping all the clowns, with Djoker/Murray on holiday and Nadal still being a bit out-of-sorts and the usual main target for the clowns.

it really comes down to whether Djoker recovers and if Murray can get some motivation.

He must be trying like mad to remain calm; he respects Cilic and Berdych and knows on their day they can light it up, but, as a general principle, this is as solid a look-in at winning another major as he could have EVER dreamed.
 
 
Though he would have preferred Ferrer types to huge serving lugs on grass.

Mugu seems a very emotional person and can get seriously carried away and distracted by this, hence the past year when she should've won a lot more. I not sure any psychology or coaching can help that as it just her personality and prob drives her play when she focused. Also reckon if she wins one Wimbledon she'll win more than one.
