Marray and nielsen are having a dream run here this week. Got in as wild cards and have taken out the number 9, 8 and 2 seeds on the way to their final. Lindstedt and tecau ahve looked great all week, only dropped 1 set here on the way to the final and are in their 3rd straight final here

Honestly i'd be happy with either team winning. Im leaning a little more toward nielsen/marray though.

Marray/Nielsen for me. Their opponents will for sure find a way to choke another big match once again. First Wimbledon doubles crown for GB since WW2

I hope Marray/Nielsen win this, but Lindstedt/Tecau are the favourites and really deserve to win a Wimbledon crown already. Good final anyway, hopefully we'll see a good match :yeah:

Choke or not, you couldn't expect them to beat Melzer/Petzschner in 2010, who were 1-2 classes above them, or Bryan/Bryan in 2011.

One cannot fail to notice how much LinTec have grown as a team. Their continued improvement deserves a nice GS reward if you ask me, but I may be biased, given that one of the players is a co-national. May the best team win...:worship:

Btw Yesterday I read that Tecau has been selected to carry the Romanian flag at the Olympics. Isn't that quite shocking?

Shocking how? It's a great honor and he's a great athlete. After receiving the news he said:

"For me, it is a wonderful feeling. I am honored to carry my country's flag. With the flag in my hands, I know that all Romanians will be at my side. This makes me stronger and, why not, it makes me want to try to win a medal for Romania."

Why? He's the best athlete of our country right now

Lindstedt/Tecau to win their first GS title here :D

I mean I was surprised he is supposed to be big in Romania or close to being one of the best athletes the country has?!

I pick L/T to win in 3 or 4. Marray to be the weak factor.

Oh, that's what you meant. Yeah, well Romania doesn't mean too much in many fields of sports. We still have a few shots in women's handball, fencing, judo, rowing and gymnastics. Tecau is the best when it comes to tennis, and I think it's the first tennis such selection given in many many years.:)

But let's get back to the final.:)

i would have expected romania's flag bearer to by a gymnast, maybe Flavius Koczi or Sandra Izbaşa

seems a fair few countries are sending tennis players as their flag bearers:

china -li na
spain -rafael nadal
poland - agnieska radwanska
russia - maria sharapova
romania - horia
denmark - caroline wozniacki

I think Fed is also a flag bearer.

Fun fact: Nielsen's grandfather played the singles final in 1953 and 1955: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Nielsen

True, but i mean they have never won a bigger title than 250 so far. OTOH they were always the outsiders in their 500, 1000, or GS finals. This is their best chance ofc.

how many ranking points will a doublesplayer gain from runner up/winner in a GS? (new to doubles)

The same as in singles: 1200/2000

Go Marray and Nielsen!!

Marray's from the same city as me, and played at a tennis club near me, so im fully cheering for him to win! Unbelievable run to get to the final, beating the great Bryan brothers on the way. 2 British Wimbledon champions this year c'mon!!
