She doesn't want to dance with that awkward clod Cilic(get rid of that unibrow Cilic!) Who could blame her?
 
Come on Federer, make it happen!

Who would want to dance with any Croat? Cilic and Whisper all all the evidence we need that they are lowlifes.
 
I hope Federer is in top form tomorrow and that Cilic isn't on his USO juice. It's out of our hands now. Go, Great Man!

I actually like Cilic and his no-nonsense aggressive tennis. He seems like a nice guy and apparently he's extremely well-liked on tour but I would like the graceful Federer to prevail tomorrow!

I agree about Audrey Hepburn. She was delightful and a true movie star. The epitome of elegance. I've liked most of the movies I've seen starring Audrey Hepburn(Breakfast at Tiffany's, Charade, etc.) but I really disliked Sabrina. Even the beautiful Hubert de Givenchy dresses couldn't save it!

Yes, there's truth in that but even the presence of Hepburn(the best part of Sabrina along with the Givenchy designed dresses) couldn't save Sabrina IMO.

Apparently Bogart didn't get along with director Billy Wilder either and was a real mean primadonna on that set. He also didn't think Hepburn and Holden could act so he was sour towards them during the shooting of the movie. He wanted his wife Lauren Bacall in the Audrey Hepburn part.
 
In truth Bogart was the one who was out of place in that film. He was horribly miscast. And dare I say it but they wanted Cary Grant for the Bogart role and I think he signed on and then bailed so they got Bogart as a replacement. I can't imagine there's a person in the world who would think Bogart would be a suitable replacement for Grant. I mean they had completely different strengths as actors. They shouldn't have been interchangeable in any roles. But even if Grant were cast in that role, I doubt it would have been enough to save that awful fluff script and inconceivable ridiculous story IMO.

Hepburn was good in "The Children's Hour" (1961.) It was a different type of unglamorous role for her. It also starred Shirley MacLaine and James Garner.

Nonsense, Nadal played two matches on court 1 which is still a show court, I remember a lot of players in the past played on outside court, Sampras lost to Bastl on Court 2 in his last Wimbledon, did Sampras complain about his match on Court 2 when he was 7 times champion ? How many match did Muller play on Centre court in this Wimbledon ? Probably just 1 against Nadal. If Tony Nadal wanted to complain he should be looking at Nadal's play rather than which court the match was played. It was Nadal who gave his opponent a two sets lead to his opponent and found it hard to recover with that deficit.

First it was, "French Open crowd is very bad" and now this? LOL. Exactly how is Wimbledon "helping" other players more? All they are doing is scheduling the more popular players on Center Court so that the crowd gets their money's worth. And it is not like Nadal never got scheduled there? And after six years of doing nada at Wimbledon, I do not think this is unfair. What a couple of whiners! This poor little rich boy act is getting old.

Gracchus, did you see how Venus was taking a walk with her small cup and making an ass of herself. She thought the crowd will think it is cute. She was basically stealing Muguruzas thunder

That's how daddy taught his daughters to be. Sometimes it seems like Venus is less that way than Serena, but it will always be part of them both.

The way she just stomped on Rybarikova's neck was incredible.
 
Congrats to the new Queen of Tennis!

It's all stupid, they are raving/foaming at the mouth about corticosteroids which are NOT performance enhancing drugs. They are used to eliminate inflammation from injury and to prevent small injuries from becoming long-term or career ending. Do these bozos really think that it's in the best interest of sports and tennis specifically to let the top athletes suffer or drop out of the sport? These are professional athletes and they should be allowed to maximize their earnings while promoting the sport. I see no problem with therapeutic exceptions to stupid bans.

A 3 setter is not a beatdown, by definition, as the opponent still
won a set.
 
But really weird how Venus' game completely collapsed after the
first set....wow....

Yup only saw parts of the first set. Wasn't expecting Venus to collapse like this in the second. Congrats to Muguruza though. She won playing some stellar tennis throughout.

I know it has ever been thus at Wimbledon (at least for the last 30 years) but fuck me, two giant dudes hitting massive serves until one of them flounders and can't return rally balls, I'd rather watch second rate women's tennis match than that any day of the week. I hope Fed dismantles him.
 
You'd rather have a 6'1'' guy hit massive serves? Fed would have zero wimbledons without his serve. It's probably better than Querrey's and Cilic's combined.

The last one wasn't very good compared to the first. Most films these days are garbage, plots that cater to the LCD and characters lifted straight from SJW propaganda. Force Awakens was the nail in the coffin for me as far as films in general and franchises I cared about.
 
Still, I'll see it when it's released digitally. After the 2016 election and aftermath I am not giving any more money to Hollywood via the cinema.
 
Chimps only have a lifespan of 40-50 years or so. You'd think Caesar was getting too old for this shit.

Not today, as the roof was closed!
 
I was happy she won but sad it ended on a challenge, given she was up
5-0 at that point you'd think she'd have had the generosity to let it
slide to end the match on a better note, but I sense that Muguruza was
too nervous to let anything go, she probably had visions of Venus making
a sudden comeback at match point to take it in 3 sets....

Well as he's the most graceful mover on court, maybe she thinks he must be
a good dancer too!
