Murray and Djokovic taking a hit for USO though still holding on to a narrow lead. Federer and Nadal taking up the slack.

I don't think any of this is correct.
Who would make djokovic and Murray the favorite for anything after Wimbledon ?

I agree. How can anybody make Djokovic especially the favorite to win the USO in two short months? The guy has too many issues at the moment it seems. Plus, Djokovic isn't really that strong at the USO. I would put current Federer and Nadal ahead of him. Murray is obviously suffering from health/injury concerns as well. I doubt a healthy Murray would have lost to Querrey today. Murray looked like he was hurting from what I saw of that fifth set.

Sure...
 
But you didn't answer my question about your opinion on:
 
Intolerance
Children of Paradise
The Best of Youth
 
Also, could you give us some comments on Godard and Tarkovsky films...
I'm especially interested on hearing what you thought about 'Stalker'
and "Weekend'?
 
If you fail to do that in somewhat convincing fashion then the only
conclusion is that you have not seen the films you claim.

I unfortunately missed the match, but he has a
long history of faking injuries....

Who knows with him. He's such a phony in every way IMO. A leopard doesn't change his spots. The best is him playing this attentive family man and yet he's most likely the Tiger Woods of tennis if rumors are to be listened to.

But people here tell me that the grass is very slow this year...
 
Or is it fast again after Nadal losing?

Yes, I'm really broken up about "Tiger" Djokovic retiring. :) Strange how this "chronic" injury of his flared up today of all days. He looked fine when he was beating non-grass entities in Eastbourne last 10 days ago! In a way, I'm disappointed because I wanted to see a Federer-Tiger showdown in the SF. I think Federer would have destroyed Tiger this year.
 
Let's go Federer! Just do it!

Hopefully Konta will come through against Venus... Brits need someone to cheer for in one of the finals, besides Feds... :)

Venus winning would be the feel good story of the tournament though.

But just imagine the noise coming from Whisper's "Tier 1 clubhouse" he's
got behind his house (you know, the one with the "No Fedfuckers
Allowed!!" sign handing on the doorknob. He might just burn it down this
time.
alinefx@alinefx.com: Jul 12 07:44PM -0700

Iceberg (along with his antartica brother) are all falling to pieces, literally coming unhinged at the possibility of fed winning #19 and #20 in a row and leaving the bumrooter in the sandbox forever.
 
Even whisper is whispering of (his own) dream that Fed doesn't slay em all, which he will. He's playing about the best ever since 2007 peak. He'll probably thrash the next 2 guys and then they'll all compare Cilic/Berdych/Querrey to Baghdatis types again, saying he didn't meet Rafa/Djoker when both of them UTTERLY FAILED against journeymen (or clowns as Berdych is referred to around here).

If Federer wins the next two match, he will be considered the dominant player otherwise there is no dominant player.

There are no Olympics points. But he will be just over a 100 points over Nadal and he has 600 points coming up next month.

People like 'Pipe-cleaner' might consider taking a break from tennis to rejuvenate their hanger for the game.

Yes... That's the 3rd time he's had either a shoulder or elbow issue... so, a break certainly seems warranted for emotional and physical concerns...

W is special, but all slams matter for GOAT contenders.

If he's sharp, his chances to beat Berdshit are good. The Croat juicer is a bigger concern.

It is looking good for RF but still two matches to go. One at a time. Hopefully he carries his current form through the rest of the tournament without the minor hiccup like the one in the third set today.

True, but such nuance escapes obdurIcey often. Hence I have to chime in often.

Yes, correct... I was referring to singles play (since that's all RST counts) :))))
