I hear you, and even though I'm a huge Fed fan, I also want to see great contests and great tennis, but worry not, close matches starts from QF, and Fed has the hardest draw possible in this Wimbly, you really can't make a harder draw for Fed on paper.
One would be harder with Gasquet and Nadal in it.
If Federer is the best of all time I want him to beat the best people of all time. (and before I get moaned at on grass at this best Richie is top 5 on grass, certainly not on other surfaces but I still think Rafa v Richie on grass and Richie would win). I know he can only beat whats in front of him and I'm certainly not taking away from his victory cos as I said before if you peak at the right time you deserve it but its a bit shit from a tennis viewers perspective.
Am also pissed with Wimbledon's scheduling this year. Why is Roddick on Centre or court 1 and Safina who is world number 1 and been in the most slam finals in the last year on court 2. nice to see they've moved Gonzo onto a big court though as his last match on court 18 was absolutely rammed people were queuing for a good hour to get on the court when the Brit matches on court 2 weren't filling up the court.
I think we are way too self indulgent towards brit players. The red button is showing 2 sets of Brits playing ladies doubs when there are some brilliant mens singles matches going on that aren't televised. Maybe if they showed great matches with more players than the top 4 instead of mediocre brits then kids would get inspired to play tennis.
