Soderling and Murray would be okay with me. I guess I wouldn't mind if Tomas wins it but I feel Soda and Andy deserve a GS more.

I don't think Soda stands much of a chance, though, so I guess I'll stick with Murray.

Well, it won't feel like a Wimbledon final without Roger, but I guess.... Murray? It's been long overdue. I wouldn't have an issue with Rafa winning either, but it looks difficult.

Hey I wouldn't mind if Berdych won...or Soderling or Tsonga. Not a Andy fan but if he wins then I think I would be happy for him because he's been to 2 finals like Soderling.

It's too bad Roddick didn't make it. I think he would have given Djokovic a real match.

Obviously rooting for Berdych to take the title. I am not a huge fan of the other 3.

I don't like Murray too much because of all the over hype from the media and his constant c'mons at errors. I still remember when tehy considered him the favorite for like every slam.

Djoko and Nadal I don't like too much because of their obvious gamesmanship. I don't mind too much if Djoko wins though because he doesn't seem to be using gamesmanship anymore and seems to be trying to change for the better.

I just realized this could have been Roddick's year but he lost to Lu by playing a defensive game. It was the first time in like 7 years that Roddick could have had a shot at the title without Federer being on the way.

Federer took his chance at the French when Nadal bombed out... too bad Roddick isn't there to take this huge chance.

tough call as I don't cheer for any of the players that are left, I usually do support a few players outside of Federer but none are left so I'll have to go with Bird, Novak, Murray, Nadal in that order.

Definitly not a cheater, so not nadal

I go for Djoko, I would be happy for him, Berdych to but to a lesser extend

Nole fan
06-30-2010, 11:45 PM
I don't think I need to say it, but I would like to see Nole go all the way. He surely deserves it more than anyone else after three years of pedalling behind Rafa and Roger. Plus it would be great for the sport and he already has so many fans that want to see him win another grand slam. If that's not possible, then Murray. He really should get his first slam done plus the British crowd will go nuts for him. Finally, Berdych and last Nadal.

I'm not saying I support the guy. I'd like to see Nole win it actually, but it wouldn't surprise me if Rafito won. :shrug:

It's sort of fun it's up in the air, I think. I bet Roger is gonna feel great sleeping in on a Sunday with his kids--not a worry in the world! He's had success there before------obviously. Nows the time for a little R&R with his babies!

Let the best player win. I wouldn't mind either of these four winning this event. Although Nadal is the favorite to win this event, a Murray/Berydch/Djokovic win would be great as well. Murray or Berdych can get their first slam title and Djokovic can prove a point about his comeback when people started questioning his form, his serve, everything.

The real question is how do you stop Nadal. Murray can do it but on grass it will very very tough and definitely nothing like hard courts. He or the winner of the other semi final will have to hit big and consistently, serve big and consistently for about 3-4 hours to beat him.

I am not a fed fan and was cheering for roddick this time. Since he's gone, I am now cheering for berdman. I think he is playing the most aggressive tennis at the moment. His game is solid and if he holds himself together mentally, he could have a real shot at this title.

I hope whoever plays the bettter tennis wins in each match. Of course it would be great for Britain if Murray were to win (though I fear the press may go delirious in the eventually that it happens). If Berdych were to win, given his progression in the earlier round and the calibre of his opponents from the quarter finals onwards, it would certainly be a bit of a shock but I believe it would be a reflection on the self-belief and evident hard work he has displayed already this season.

That said I will be supporting Nadal followed by Djokovic. I'm quite optimistic on the prospects of a Rafa-Djoko final as they are the highest seeds remaining and both are former slam champions. I had speculated that this final matchup might happen a little while before the 4th round and now I hope it does. It will be a rematch of their final at the Queen's Club in 2008, which I thought was a highly entertaining match.

Eden
07-01-2010, 07:12 PM
As Berdych is my second favourite player after Roger of course I keep my fingers crossed for him to win the title, even though he is probably the least likely amongst the 4 left players to win.

But whoever will be the winner on Sunday will deserve it as he has won 7 matches in the tournament and most of all the deciding one.

It would be nice for Murray if he could finally make the big step to finally win a title which would surely take a lot of pressure of his shoulders.

Djokovic hasn't been in a GS final for a while, but I think it's not easy to be in the "shadow" of Roger and Rafa.

It would be an amazing achievement for Rafa to win RG and Wimbledon back to back for the second time. Not that many people would think back then that he has been written off only a few weeks ago only because he hadn't won a title in a while.

He's going to be tough to replace: eight years of Federer's ease on the court, and ease with the press and the fans. His fluency in every language but Klingon. He's the only male tennis player listed on Forbes' Celebrity 100. But soon, we will be left with The Butt-Picker, The Lunatic, The Pusher and Elf. You have to put all four together to even try to come up with a personality that half approaches Federer's. The competition may improve, but the magic will be gone.

I guess I'll have to wait until someone fresh comes along that reminds me of Roger.

I also keep waiting for Nadal to crash out of the tournament, the difference is that I would be disappointed. But, I'm resigned to Murray beating him and can bear it. I would prefer Djokovic to win it if Nadal can't. I like Berdych. I admire Murray more than like him. His speed on the court leaves me breathless sometimes. It would be a great story for him to win.
