Wimbledon Men's Review

The third Grand Slam of the year is over - as is the grass court season (just don’t tell the guys in Newport) – with the concluding story on the men’s side revolving around a familiar champion. The rain and poor organisation was also a major talking point, but let’s start off with what matters most, the players.

*Just like Borg now – Roger Federer won his 11th Grand Slam (just three behind Pete Sampras), and as far as the final goes it was certainly his most hard fought. In the process Federer equalled Bjorn Borg’s record of five consecutive Wimbledon titles (as well as equalling his overall Slam tally). It was fitting that Borg should be in attendance to witness a thrilling final and to congratulate a player who had just hit the same lofty heights that the Swede once did. Federer came into Wimbledon this year without his customary preparation at Halle, following his efforts and ultimate disappointment at Roland Garros. Ultimately it mattered not, as Federer was able to work his way into the tournament before the adverse conditions threw a spanner into the works and caused him to sit and watch while his rivals figured out if they were playing 3rd round or 4th round matches! Federer who had won his previous four Wimbledon titles for the loss of only five sets, had three taken off him this time around (all by Spaniards – one by Juan Carlos Ferrero and two by Rafael Nadal). Federer moves ever closer to Sampras’s 14 Slam titles and quite possibly by this time next year, he may have them. Time will tell.
