Pete's Wimbledon losses to Kraijchek and Federer deatured some of the best tennis I've ever seen

Pete played well, but both Richard and Roger played out of their fucking MINDS!

AgassiFan, I know all about Medvedev's capabilities and his huge choke at the FO and then losing the love of the game.

Yes, many of the Wimbledon crowd are a bunch of elitist, aristocratic wankers with double-barrelled names who think the tennis season only lasts 2 weeks a year.

Tennis will never be a sport for the masses, and to think it will be is a dream undomiele. Ok, football is the only true sport for the people from all backgrounds, as you only need a space and something resembling a ball to play with. With tennis, there needs to be a court, the costs of equipment, paying for coaching this all adds up over time.

Ok, where I am from luckily you don't need to be from a wealthy background unlike many countries to be able to play. Economic factors play a large role in this. I mean the best thing I like about the Williams sisters is that they didn't come from a priviledged background, but they are the exception not the norm.

Yeah i know its a pipe dream. Its like what Somerset Maugham said once: "Money is the sixth sense without which the other five cannot function" and that is certainly the case with tennis as a sport.

As great as the clay season is, the best part about it is that grass is straight after it
