Hate seeping through.

Going by form both overall and in the tournament, N/Z should be significant favourites here.

Paes and Steps beat 3 quality teams, while N/Z played against a bunch of clowns, so I don't think we can judge their form based on the tournament. :lol:

Entirely agree...Moreover Leander-Stepanek plays big when the match is big...I believe Paes-Steps would go ahead...

Hmmm...real competition? I can foresee repeat of Aussie'12 and Flushing Medows'13 here ;)
This has nothing to do with Bob and Mike.

Wow! Paes 41 years old and nestor almost 42!
:worship:

I think Nestor/zimonjic are favourites on grass with big serves here, but on hard courts I would say Paes/stepanek. I hope Paes in five.
Don´t forget the french pair. The twins can lose in semis. I see them the potencial winners.

Expected N/Z to be bigger favourites than the bookies have given. Agreed that P/S have had quite a tough road. Tougher even then their legendary run last USO. Anyway, P/S need it more. Coming into Wimbledon, they were 22nd in the race, so they could use the points.

A Paes/Steps vs. Llodra/Mahut final would be perfect.



Excuse me?

Can't even say his name? :lol:

I don't think that Nestor/Zimonjic are favorites here, maybe just a little, I see this close to 50/50. Well, Steps/Paes had a tougher road to semis for sure. I was actually in Wimbledon for couple days and watched them defeating Fyrstenberg/Ram and also caught the very end of defeating Gonzalez/Lipsky.

A Paes/Steps vs. Llodra/Mahut final would be perfect.
I second this. As much as I like Bryans, this would be the dream final for me here. And although I like Paes/Steps more, I would root for Llodra/Mahut this time due to obvious reasons :)

Have to say I am very impressed by Nestor/Zimonjic level today, they have been clearly the better pair so far.

Just hope Steps/Paes can somehow hang in and steal this 2nd set.

P/S were down 5-2 in the TB. They won the next 5 points for 7-5.

In other news, the other P/S also won the second set to level it off against the third P/S. The third P/S(also called singles P/S) in Wimbledon SF would be a travesty.

If it's N/Z vs Bob/Mike, who would you guys root for?

Sock/Pospisil and Nestor/Zimonjic have choked big time to lose the 2nd set.

Did they just do a chest bump? Seriously, you can't be original?

You know my reason, even though they aren't together anymore.
They are no longer together and boom, GS final. As simple as that.

Hmm, two players I have almost always rooted for against two players I have almost never rooted for. Damn, that's a tough one.

I'm sure you remember that this is not the first time they have done it.
