When one of the youngest mens Wimbledon finals ever was staged?

Why are we using the US Open oldies final as a staple of the ATP, and not this?

Its the year of extremes:
The oldest final vs the youngest final
The least predictable winner (Johansson) vs the most predictable winner (Hewitt)

It made for quite a year already. :D
GO ATP! ;)

Well apparently Costa fits the "nobody" label, so Roland Garros fit the year of nobodies :eek:

Its is Hewitt and Sampras who had to ruin it for us :fiery:

I forgot about all the Wimbledon semifinalists didnt' I?

Xavier, Tim, Lletyon, David - average age roughly 22 - Tim bumps it up a year :p

So how come I keep hearing that the young guys on the ATP aren't performing in slams? :confused:

Why do we look at ONE tournament as the staple of all things that be on the ATP?

If we are going to form an opinion on something, should we not consider all the facts first?

French Open semifinalists - Ferrero, Safin, Costa, Corretja

average ago roughly 24.

8 of 16 semifinalists in slams this year were under that age of 23.

No irma, I didn't say it was.

The mens final at Wimbledon rather sucked in quality IMO.

But my point is you can't take one tournament and say "that's the tour".

My point had nothing to do with the actually match.

Nope as long as Sue Barker and his other worshippers are around the british public will always think there's a chance although loads of us are starting to realise the truth
I'm not Henman bashing cos I quite like him but I think that out tv commentators build up false hopes for the british public

Sorry, I was admiring those great Lleyton and Kim pictures ;)

Seriously though, I agree with you totally... Pete vs. Andre isn't the norm, it's the exception!

I think Tim should skip Wimby next year and say that they're not seeding him properly. :D

lol @ Lily :D

Greg and Tim should boycott :cool:

Tim because he isn't seeded properly, and Greg because he has no interest in playing some tournament that some washed up nobody has won 7 times:cool:
