Wimbledon 2017
« on: July 12, 2017, 16:11 »
Who will be crowned women's' champion?  Based on my observations of the matches played so far, my pick will be Garbine Mugurusa! :D

She got the grace and power to win it this year! :)

Tonight's women's final will see an American granny battling it out with a budding young Spanish woman! ;D

Venus at 37 and into the twilight of her tennis career will be crowned the best grand old dame of the tennis world if she wins! 8)

I still pick feisty Garbine to win her second slam! :)

Good chance for Roger to add to his trophy case.. this could entrench the great man even deeper into tennis folklore..

The GOAT will win his 19th slams tomorrow and only a miracle can change the outcome.  Federer is at his best at the moment and whilst other at his age are slowing down, he brings his precision and controlled game to another level!

It's a great pleasure to watch him play! :)

As expected, in the end youth triumphs over experience!  :P   Hate to say this but Venus has no right to be in the finals with her error prone forehand and backhand!  She was blown away in the second game 6 - 0 by Garbine who rightly deserves to be crowned the champion! :)

Amazing!  Nobody can deny him the GOAT status!  I expect him to win another 2 more before riding off to the sunset!   :)

I actually thinks he need the Olympic Singles gold (even though he has a gold for doubles).

But not all will think this is important.

this can be used as tiebreaker for any argument.
