Hitting the Grass - Wimbledon 2009

This year's grass event is intriguing even though Nadal is out.

A couple of obvious plotlines:

- Will Federer continue to capitalize on Nadal's absence to lock down GOAT status (if he hadn't already).

- Will Andy Murray electrify Britain and keep the trophy home for first time since Fred Perry.

- If Murray does win, will he wear a kilt to the Champion's ball (he is a Scot after all and it would help to distract the attention away from that weird hair)

- Can Andy Roddick take advantage and at least play for the title again?

- Will James Blake show up?

- Will the Bryan Brothers finally get back on track?


Some very good first round matches to look forward to:

- Lleyton Hewitt vs Robby Ginepri
- Andy Roddick vs Jeremy Chardy
- Sam Querrey vs Ivan Ljubicic
- Rainer Schuettler vs Xavier Malisse
- James Blake vs Fabrice Santoro (i love watching how he confounds everyone on tour - he's retiring this year)


Grass is unpredictable but I think Federer's dominance is not. He will win again.

  5. Actually I just realized I got a free preview of the tennis channel so I was watching the nadal v.fed match I am way more into wimby than the hotter than hell tyler tourney.

    I am hoping for a Murray win so Fed will have to work for it in NY to break the record

  7. I am wayyy hoping for a Federer win. With the Nadal injuries, will Nadal be looked backed upon in history and be considered a flash in the pan?

  10. Rockettman - Dude what are you thinking? Don't you have better things to do that start a string on Wimbledon? I thought you were fighting the DTA and reorganizing the USTA .... You need to get your head out of your ass and work on your game,
