Wimbledon R32: Jonas Bjorkman [19] (SWE) v Wayne Arthurs [Q] (AUS)

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled
"Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me?"

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled
"Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me?"

Down came a jumbuck to drink from the billabong,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,
And he sang as he stowed that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me".

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me"
And he sang as he stowed that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me".

Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred,
Down came the troopers, one, two, three,
"Where's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?"
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me".

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me"
"Where's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?",
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me".

Up jumped the swagman, leapt into the billabong,
"You'll never catch me alive," said he,
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong,
"Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me?"

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong,
"Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me?"

Arthurs in five.

Two golden oldies, with a combined age of 71.

When was the last time Bjorkman played someone older than him?

Hopefully Bjorkman will send old Matilda waltzing away.

2 great players. Sad one must lose.

I'm going for Jonas.

Hopefully Wayne in his last attempt here, Bjorkman will have more chances, he's still young. :cool:

No joke about their age in the poll? How disappointing. ;)

Well, either player is fine with me. Classic S+V. :)

This should be played in Center Court.

I really like to support Björkman in his matches, but this time I wish Arthurs would win. However, realistically I think Jonas is going to take this in three, maybe four sets.

they are tied 1-1 on grass with Bjorkman being the most recent winner, but I like Arthurs chances he is playing incredible I think Wayne in 5 sets, this could save Wayne's career so I very much want him to win (just in case you didn't know Wayne said he will consider continuing his career if he can play well and get into the top 100 after Wimbledon that means just two more wins!)

Come On Wayno! Aussie Aussie Aussie

Really hoping for Jonas to win, but I'd like it to be a good competitive match. I like both guys :yeah:

Rooting for Arthurs, but I think Bjorkman in 4. I think Arthurs has been getting tired as the rounds go on. He'll put up a fight, but once it goes extra sets, he's done for. Still have my fingers crossed though!

This should be played in Center Court.


Totally agree. Both players have done a great service to tennis and carried themselves with class thoughout their long careers. This will be a great display of classic grasscourt tennis.

.. i would hope that they wouldn't play 70 games. arthurs would have nothing in the tank in the next round, and that's bad, because he has to beat berdych and nadal. :p

06-29-2007, 10:26 AM
ok then, the last set can be arthurs' 6-0!

58 games sound alright? ;)

Bjorkman will take this in 3 or 4, sadly for me i can't see wayne getting through this one i think jonas would be too tough but i hope wayne can pull this off.

Is there anyone who could record this match if it will be on TV (maybe Australia)? :worship:
