Fed did what he needed to do today. It's nothing more complicated then that. Got the job done in just over 2 hours, saved the body, it's all he cares about at this point. On to the next round. Murray wasn't so lucky.

If I'm not mistaken, the one he lost was the first one. So 26 straight!

Brilliant serving performance from Fiasco.

How come Verdasco has still not improved his serve.

Raises serious questions about his work-ethic and discipline.

All straight sets wins in the first week. It's good cause he won't have it that easy from now on.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

7 Wimbledon titles

Nando, you dumbass! Is it that hard to take a set from him?

Fiasco is a different player these days. His forehand deteriorated more than Roddicks.

'Federer almost looks bored out there,' the American commentator remarked at one point.

Fed could have triple bagelled this horror show Verdasco but couldn't be bothered paying attention - he was just as bored playing this match as I was watching it.

And fittingly it looked like he was playing in his pyjama top.

He wanted to give the fans something to watch. He's just generous like that.
