Even Nadal can't see it. No chance.

Video clips of Wimbledon fans in the queue

Postby Fix1110 » Fri Jul 07, 2006 11:38 pm

To anyone interested --

We filmed fans in the 7/5 Wimbledon queue having fun and talking about who they thought would win.

Most people were rooting for Federer..and ppl really underestimated Baghdatis at the time!

Check out the clips at: http://selfcasttv.blinkx.com/Selfcast/wimbledon.do

cheers,

Glad that "munter grunter" Sharapova is out of the women's competition - they can give the "it's my training" excuse all they like, if mooing like a pornstar doesn't keep a player in the championships then they need to knock it on the head and play the damn game like their opponents did.

Well Justine Henin-Hardennes has just taken the first set, in a business-like way. Compared to the worst grunters, you can't hear anything but the ball being hit. I knew it was gamesmanship from Sharapova.

Mauresmo is fighting back though, should be a good contest this.

Nadal got creamed in the first set, but he is fighting back well now.

Why is Neth obsessed with the grunts of the players?

You should have put a grand on at the bookies.

You might have won a quid :)

Shame Nadal couldn't pull it back to two sets all, but Federer never looks to get out of second gear, though I think that's just the way he plays.

:D Better start watching with the sound on mute from now on...good match, at least Federer had a set taken off him which didn't happen in any other match in the whole championship, and Nadal can go back to kicking Federer's backside on clay in the rest of the season.

Because there was only one day of rain it also felt like the championships blinked by, but what I saw was good. But now on to the World Cup final where the result won't be so predictable.

Yeah, this one did seem to go fucking fast. Probably because of clashing with the World Cup aswell, so I watched the footy rather than the tennis. Normally I don't have the option. -_-
