My brother coached me before he went back to Afghanistan (you probably know him as metalgear around here).
I am in a few big tournaments here in London but only for 16-19 year olds.

Federer was my undisputed tennis hero.
But since he got beat by that swedish guy in the last major tournament (French Open), his gone down in my books. Although he is still a legend.

Mine too, will you be going to Wimbledon?

No unfortunately I will just be watching on tv. A bit better than watching online which I do for most of the year.

I will be supporting Andy. Just hope his knee is recovered so he can do his best.

Wow that's interesting. If I had been born later I think I definitely would have at least given it a shot to try and become professional. You go Kaya, we are needing another good young tennis player - though I suspect you might play for Turkey. ;)

Good luck to him and your brother in Afghanistan.
Wimpleton is my favorite cage-ball tournament.

Always so arrogant.

Federer is 2 sets to love down to Falla but now Falla seems to have some injury and has just had treatment.

This is a good match. Fed won the next set but now Falla has broken Fed's serve in the opening game of the fourth set!

Well he did eventually win and the last set 6-0 but it was a very close thing. Federer is probably past his best but considering he had glandular fever last year I think it is amazing how well he did and that he managed to regain the no 1 spot, albeit lost it again to Rafa. Must admit I would be happier if Andy was in his half rather than Nadal's.

whey hey, good news. He has won 6-7(4) 4-6 6-2 6-3 6-1

Of course ;) Well Andy is doing what he usually does, keeping us biting our fingers. He has been broken the second time he served. Hopefully he will wake up soon and get the job done.

Yes! We have broken back 4-4

First set eventually won by Murry who 7-5. Well deserved. He played some lovely tennis in the second half of that set.

Arch Enemy, you should be watching :)

Unbelievable there is a tennis match going on at Wimbledon between Mahut and Isner where the score is 2 sets all and 34 all. It is the longest ever match I think! Phew. Exhaustion. They have been playing for 6 hours and 50 minutes.
