Wimbledon 2019

Anyone watching this Isner/Anderson match?! 12-12 in the 5th set. No tiebreaker at Wimbledon in the last set. This doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon.

Damn. Isner lost 26-24. Would have been nice to have an American man in the finals. Hasn't happened in a while.

F**k Borg! Mac was the man. I bought that Dunlap racket he used with my own money (I was only 17 when I bought it, but worked hard). He did well without as much athletic talent.

This is the racket I still have but mine doesn't say "Borg pro" on it.
I'll never forget that marathon match against McEnroe at Wimbeldon.

Love watching Fed/Rafa. Greatest Wimbledon match was between these 2.

How about that championship?!? Can't believe Federer didn't put it away when he had two chances in the 16th game.

Yeah, that was shocking indeed but as he said, he had his chances...I remember a missed overhead that cost him dearly and perhaps his legs just weren't there. Playing on grass is tiring and requires a lot of getting down to the ball. Joker was getting everything back and hitting it wide to the corners. Very impressive mental game-looks unbeatable.

Things like this happens, I was surprised too by this. As I can see now Roger and Nadal are in the past. Nadal was my favorite since he started his career.
