What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,
the game in which you are entertained.
It is the game you will win.

I think there's still a possibility Ward will get a wildcard.

But yeah, english tennis seems to be at its lowest point of all time.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Re: Wimbledon 2010: No Englishman in singles draw for the first time ever.

There's no more WCs left. The remaining 3 not awarded has gone to 3 direct entry alternates, is it not? If there's any player pull out from the MD, the spot will give to a LL, right? Or is there somewhere in the Wimby rule book saying they can give it out as WC instead of leave it to the LL lucky draw? Idk, I never read rule book.

Anyway, back to topic... there's 2 Scots in the draw. So as far as I'm concerned, the Brits is being represented.

Wow. This really is a little depressing. Who's running things over at the LTA again?

This is good news. Sorry but people like Teimuraz and Nishikori > Boggo.

Handing an English player a WC is like ripping up a hundred dollar bill.

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Del Potro ~ Tsonga ~ Simon ~ Chardy ~ Verdasco ~ Djokovic ~ Gasquet

The Federror #1 reign is over for good. The king is dead. Praise Odin!!

Ward will obviously recieve a wild card.


Would be nice to see Ward draw Lopez again and kick the crap out of him once more.

I salute you, LTA dudes. Those things should be banned everywhere and anyone who uses one in public should be castrated, stoned and burned.
