Soderling makes it 3 in a row . Leads Nadal 3-0 in the first set! Fed pulls a game back to make it 4-5. Hope he breaks Berdych to stay alive in the game. :?

Federer to fall to No.3 in the world! Me oh my. For the first time since November 2003, Roger Federer will not be in the top two in the world come Monday after that 4-6, 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 defeat to Berdych.


Wow ... in tennis terms, esp men, that is an eternity!

Nadal up 4-1 in the second. Looks like Soderling's going to be swept after an aberration that was the first set.

Eternity for sure, in November 2003, being in top two for more than a few months was considered divine. It still is but Nadal has had his share of divinity too..

Soderling is awesome. I dont think he will be swept, and that is taking nothing away from Nadal's talent and greatness.

1-1 in terms of sets between Nadal and Soderling. Yes. Nadal is a great too. Thing is he isn't as good as Federer though. He played second fiddle to him for too long , despite memorable wins against him ... esp in Wimbledon 08.

6-3, 6-2.
Vera could not even manage one breakpoint. Just too easy for Serena.
Her 13th Grand Slam singles title.
4th at Wimbledon.

Between her and Venus, they have won 9 of the last 11 Wimbledon women's singles titles.
Awesome!!!

I refuse to believe these two venus/serena are women.. they should not be allowed to play in that category. It is grossly unfair to the real women.

Has anyone ever bothered to do a sex test on them? (I believe strongly that Martina Navaratilova also falls into this category).

I have lost all interest in tennis. Be it mens or womens. I just cannot stand it anymore.

They should rename it from Wimbledon to Williamsden.
There is nobody even close to Serena, it seems.
She has to play really badly to get beaten.

I detest the Williams sisters. And I am not a racist.

I watched regularly when Steffi Graf was dominant and briefly when Justine Henin matched the Williamses stroke for stroke with her petite frame.

Martina came out of the closet over 20 years ago.

Did either of these girls have boyfriends during their young teens.? This is normally a clue but would not be positive in the least unless you knew some family concern was evident.. In Biology one scale has 18 gradients of Testosterone covering both sexes but has nothing to do with homosexuality.
High T(testosterone) girls are quite common these days and are not considered homosexual in law.

That does it..

Reminded me of my frequent shirdi trip by manmad express. The moment you get to vikarabad, enuch's would board the trains terrorising the passengers with their antics. These two would either frighten them off (if in sarees that is) or be made their sardar or head honcho. Man bart you had to post this!! I am sure they (this picture) are the reason for many indian women to opt out of wearing sarees. I am also positive I am going to get nightmare's tonight and also positive I will need to see a shrink to help me purge this image from my mind. :puke:

Actually if she proposes any of them, I will readily accept.. after all there are always pros and cons.. thoda der ka suffering chalega.

On the other hand she is the case of "us ke ghar ke kutte ke gand pe laath maro to bhi paisa girenga" enough to pay 10 shrinks and then enjoy with an army of chicks.. life ban jaayenga.
