Default Wimbledon

If any of you are tennis fans, like myself, there are two great matches on now. Feliciano Lopez vs. Andy Roddick, Lopez won first set.

And Maria Sharapova vs. Laura Robson. Robson is only 17 and is giving Sharapove a great match so far.

If you want to hear a chick grunt and moan check out ESPN2! Venus Williams against Sanchez. Sanchez can't control her Latino juices.

The US has one player left -- Mardy Fish, playing tomorrow morning against Nadal. Usually a tough draw, but Nadal was hobbled in his last match, so perhaps he has a chance. If he can't win the tourney, then it would be nice if Murray broke the lengthy Brit losing streak.

Admittedly at this point I am in and out of Wimbledon. Never been pro USA, just like the guys/gals who I like. That is how I roll. My biggest gripe with Wimbledon is that the main court's grass is ragged by the end of the tournament and has to have an effect on the final match.

I do like an angle, whether it's a rare USA guy, the first Brit in ages, a comeback story, or a nice rivalry, something that makes it interesting. I recorded a docu on HBO about the Borg/McEnroe days -- not seen it yet, but those things give the game some extra flavor.

I don't know how the court plays at the end, but I've always been curious about the effect of grass, along with clay, in playing the game. I used to play often, but on regular cement, of course, so I have no idea how those things factor in from experience.

+1. Almost entirely. I have already watched that HBO special. It was pretty good as most of their shows are.
