Let the REAL tennis begin. on the green green grass!

I'm sooooooooooooo happy!

The clay is over and now the beautiful green grass is here!

My fave time of the year always, bring on Queens/Halle!

Although I hope Roger doesn't win yet again, we need a new champion

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

The REAL tennis. As opposed to on all those other surfaces where they play badminton.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Let the REAL tennis begin. on the green green grass!

If clay wasnt real tennis then fed should be the one with the 6-1 head to head aginst rafa. People just say that clay isnt real tennis coz americans were never able to win on clay! There even too scarred to make there so called clay courts clay color. A great payer is one who can adapt to all surfaces and all situations and so far the closest to that is federer. DUH!

Nadal~Federer~Baghdatis~Tursonov

Gonzo-Safin-Hewitt-Robredo-Verdasco-Moya-Nalbandian-Roddick-Kolya

Just going not further back than 15 years, Courier was a repeat champion at Roland Garros (like Nadal today) and Agassi won not too long ago, too. And not going to mention the US women who won it...

True.

And Chrissy's record - 125 consecutive clay court wins.

Re: Let the REAL tennis begin. on the green green grass!

We've finally entered the fast court season. From now on, I don't expect Federer to lose any more matches for the rest of the year.

Re: Let the REAL tennis begin. on the green green grass!

Tennis comes home to the land and surface that invented it!!!!

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Let the REAL tennis begin. on the green green grass!

Tennis on grass IS real tennis because it is here where the more skilfull, the more naturaly talented wins. It's like in art - it's not about how badly you want, it's about how good you are.
Let the real games begin!

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open


Right word in the right moment - a glass of watter in the desert.

Re: Let the REAL tennis begin. on the green green grass!

Grass is by far my favorite surface.

I wish Grass season was as long as Clay season.
