Wimbledon 2016

Postby Verity » Sun Jun 26, 2016 9:51 am

Still in 2016 no young player has really made a move on the big couple, well 3 out of the big 4 (Federer, Nadal, Murray, Djokovic) are past it so its almost like theres no competition to Djokovic, he's won 5 out of the last 6 grand slams.

I'm predicting Nick Kyrgios will make the Final and stamp himself as the big next thing.

Unlike Tomic he does actually have the game to win Grand Slams, Tomic's got a big mouth but doesn't have the skill to ever do anything, Nick has a big mouth but actually is quite talented, he'll win quite a few slams in his career.

He's talented but lacks discipline to win a 2 week event.

Murray destroyed Kyrgios as if he was just toying with him.

The commentators absolutely slated Nic too as he appeared to just give up after the first set.

Yea he's got a bullshit attitude, he done the same against Dustin Brown as well, just throwing points and having tantrums when he was on the back foot.

Tomic should be disappoints the draw had really opened up for him.

I hate it when people at the peak of there sport say they don't even enjoy what they do they only do it for something to do, he's playing tennis for a living, traveling the world. He'll get more opportunity in he's life time then you could think of, he could be back in Australia working for a living doing something real shit. He just made $260 000 for winning 3 games of tennis, that's more then a doctor gets for a years work :lol:

He needs to be more appreciative for what he's got.

Guess I might as well be the first to say this here.

Congratulations, Andy Murray!

Ok, that wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. :-) Just don't ask me to say it again. :-)

And congrats to our own Ted too. Staunch Murray supporter.

I even managed to tweet congratulations to him.
And it wasn't so bad.

What's happening to me? :-)
I think, after Brexit, I might just be going a little soft on Britain.

Indeed.

He was consistent all through. I think he's stepped up his level a bit now. If he doesn't slacken, many more titles await.

And I'll be happy for him.

Murray is a great player

if not for the Serb, he'd be talked about as one of the greats in history

With Murray now playing like this, he should be world no. 1 or 2 for a while now.
Djokovic is certainly not fallible, so Murray might get to 1 too.
