Wimbledon

Since I cant wait for Wimbledon I'll just already start a thread about it.. My FAV tournament all time is coming up!!!
Since its gonna be 30 (32 even!!!) degrees here in the netherlands maybe there wont be any rain at wimbldon this year ..

I love Wimbledon so much because well seb plays so well there (i hope this year too), and grass looks cool on my tv screen , plus all the history there.. Seb has to play in a all white outfit, that makes me really happy, a very good tradition!!

Re: Wimbledon

he did pretty well in Queens...(why does Roddick ALWAYS HAVE TO BEAT HIM AT QUEENS?!!!), which is usually a good indication of how he'll go at Wimby...

i really hope he does well

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs

Re: Wimbledon

Let's hope the weather picks up for the next couple of weeks for Wimbledon ; it's cold and raining here ( England , not Wimbledon ) today

I hope Roddick isn't in Seb's half of the draw ; or Federer

Tomorrow I think we'll know.. I SOOOOOOOOOO hope that too, that he wont meet Roddick and Federer before the semi final ..
I hope he's in the same half as nadal and coria or something.. Both good players but bad on grass!! That would definitly be a good draw.. *hopes*

Re: Wimbledon

Stop dreaming, Lizan, he can't be lucky every year in Wimby !!! The last year his draw was easy until the semi, I don't think he'll be helped by the fate this year

(Of course u'll understand I'd like to see him in Nadal and Coria's draw, but..)

I dont see any reason to .. I dont think he's JUST lucky that he got to the semies in the last TWO years!! He did beat Tim Henman two years ago, and I cant remember now which other great names he'd won from.. But you CANT say that he's just lucky.. Yeah maybe he doesnt do as well this year, because everybody is watching him, he has more pressure now which he didnt have the last two years, but I'm so excited to see how well he does this year.. I'm really curious, I think every player out there is scared for Seb now, something I THINK they dont really have on clay against Seb..

Yes, 2 years ago he was just amazing , he played very well to beat Henman ! But the last year he had an easy draw until Federer, without big grass specialist.

Re: Wimbledon

They broadcast it live on radio Wimbledon but you can go to the thread "Main draw" in Wimbledon forum.
