  chancho: Clay was not a favorable surface for Pistol Pete Sampras, but he did make it to the semis of the 1996 French Open.

(Losing to the winner of the tournament Yevgeny Kafelnikov.)

Btw, head to head, Sampras had 10 wins to Kafelnikov's 1.

But that one loss, yeah, that hurts.

Jul-06-14  Everett: <Who wins on the new York surface, using wooden racquets, Borg or Federer? I like Borg. A harder hitter, and wooden racquets offer less help for the player with a more slight build (Federer).>

McEnroe was slight too, against whom Borg went 0-2 in finals. So, I disagree..

  KKDEREK: Whatta game! Dang Im nervous! Federer seems (surprisely) a bit better

  Jim Bartle: OK, no cable. Looking at wimbledon.com, the players coming out and warming up, ready to watch a great match.

And they cut away as the match starts! No rights to show it on wimbledon.com.

Federer makes surprising save to reach a fifth set.

  KKDEREK: Oh man..Amazing final, probably the toughest Djoko ever faced after that 6 hours against Nadal.

  strifeknot: Nole's return was just a little better than Fed's serve.

A competitive, well fought match; can't ask for more.

  HeMateMe: 30s is middle aged, in tennis. Strange how the top women have longer careers, they can win slams after age 30, but for the men it dries up fast when they hit 30. I think Serena W. is 33 and she won two grand slams last year. Stefi Graf could have won a few more late in her career, but she blew out an Achilles tendon or ankle, and decided to hang 'em up. She had already accomplished so much, perhaps she had no interest in a long rehab, then coming back as only a top 15 player. King, Navratilova and Evert all won slam singles when they were over 30.

Maybe Sampras and Connors have won a slam singes over the age of 30. Agassi too, but it seems much harder on the men's side. After the older English and Aussie guys of the 60s retired, their isn't a lot of male success after age 30, at the very top of the slams.

Fed has no complaints. McEnroe and Agassi both say he's the best player they've ever seen. In a recent interview I saw, Jimmy Connors was promoting his book "The Outsider." He won't name a single best player ever. You have to love Jimbo--he feels on a good day he could beat anyone, past or present. Left unsaid in the interview, you get the impression that Connors feels he should be in the "best ever" discussion. Asked about McEnroe, he said "My greatest rival," but doesn't allow that Mac was better. An optimist to the very end.

  strifeknot: Yes, Federer's serve was astonishingly good, which makes Djokovic's ability to break serve even more impressive.

Federer played a nearly perfect match, but Djokovic was up to the challenge. A well deserved victory. So few mistakes, such a high level of play.

  chancho: It was too bad that Roger lost his serve to lose the match, but give Novak all the credit.

Djoko could have easily folded his tent when it all seemed to be going against him, but he hung on and persevered.

(That's championship quality right there.)

This never say die attitude may serve him well in future matches.

(Especially against Mister Wedgie.)

  chancho: Moat of you already noticed that Djokovic and Federer had Becker and Edberg in their respective corners.

These guys just cannot let their past rivalry end.

;-)

Jul-06-14  Everett: From Wiki:

<Following his 2009 Wimbledon final, Roger Federer in the post-match press conference cited the Becker–Edberg rivalry in Wimbledon finals as his inspiration for choosing to play tennis over soccer.[6]>

  Jim Bartle: I think the Edberg/Becker thing is being overplayed. For one thing, Edberg is such a quiet person it's hard to see him getting worked up about any particular rivalry. I don't think they're continuing the rivalry through Federer and Djokovic.

Becker beat Edberg something like 25 to 10, but maybe it bothers Becker that he lost to him in two Wimbledon Finals. If I were Edberg, I'd be most frustrated that I lost the 1991 semifinals to Michael Stich without ever losing my serve.

  HeMateMe: Whatever happened to "STEEK"? It seemed he was famous for five minutes and disappeared, over night.

If Becker had been less of a party animal, he might have won an extra slam or two. same problem as McEnroe--got lazy, when the job started to get too easy.

Fed wants a clock in place for time between serves, and he's right. I'm not sure what the suggest time is right now, perhaps 20 seconds, but it is not enforced. There should be an audible on court BEEP if 20 seconds has passed. The player must serve in 5 seconds, or lose the point. If the returner is delaying the point by wandering around, he has five seconds, after the beep, to be ready for the serve, or the other player can simply hit the ball for a winner.

  HeMateMe: Wimbledon is pretty stingy with the video. The utube highlights of 2014 Wimbledon are blocked, here. We should block celebrity demolition derby highlights, in retaliation.
Jul-07-14  SimonWebbsTiger: thought it was hilarious when John and Jimmy were chatting on TV, prior to the final. At one point this is the exchange:

Jimmy was a great player, says McEnroe

C'mon, think of our image! says Connors.

  HeMateMe: I didn't watch on tv, but in the highlights I noticed Boris Becker in the stands after points. Boris better get on the Weight Watchers point system. He doesn't have a spare tire around his waist--he has a Mercedes Benz around his waist.

  chancho: Rod Laver playing a 20 year old Bjorn Borg in 1976.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYr...

I was surprised to find that Laver has a 2-5 record in matches played against the Swede.

  Jim Bartle: A couple of those might have been when Borg was 16. Tim Henman had a great record against Federer and when asked about it said, "It helps when you start playing him when he's 12."

  perfidious: <Jim> You may remember this exchange, come to Federer-Henman:

<In two encounters with Joshua E Friedel, both when I was the stronger player, I got a win and a draw. By virtue of the so-called logic, does this not make me the better player? We'll overlook the simple fact that, were we to meet today, he'd mop the floor with me, but I've got that plus score, so must be a better player than this GM!>

  shivasuri4: That caps a fantastic week for Lleyton Hewitt who won his 30th singles title, now 4th behind Federer (79), Nadal (64) and Djokovic (45). The icing on the cake was his doubles title partnering Chris Guccione.
Jul-13-14  Everett: Hewitt, liked his game, too. Just not enough oomph, it seems.

  shivasuri4: Just to be clear, Hewitt is 4th amongst <active players>.

<Everett>, Hewitt's lack of height relative to other players possibly hurt his chances somewhat.
