Such a pity that Rafael Nadal has had to withdraw on injury grounds - nobody wants to see that.

But a Brit has just won the mixed doubles final (the pair retaining the title from last year)  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

There have been some thrilling matches this year, some of them even involving British players!  :ohmy:

Nadal's idiosyncrasies drive me to distraction, but his bravery and will to win whatever the circumstances are truly impressive.

Big day for Norrie tomorrow against Novax (who's another source of irritation - I can't help getting obsessed with counting the number of ball bounces before every service rather than the actual play!  :wacko:)

The true downside to Nadal's withdrawl is that Nick Kyrgios will sadly be in the final. The guy is a disgrace to the sport and I only hope he'll behave himself on Centre Court.

Kyrgios is actually pretty good at playing tennis, but appears to believe his antics are wacky and also crowd-pleasing - for me he just behaves like an extremely tedious spoilt child.  :nowink:

Hope someone points that out to him before the final...

Yes! I think it's five bounces?

I agree. Would have preferred him not to be in the final.

I have always been an avid tennis fan, but more so the men than women.   It is a shame about Rafa, but his habits drive me mad.  I had hope for him and Novak in the final.  I wish Raffa well, and hope he is able to make a full recovery and play again.
I have always been a fan of Novak, he goes out, another day at the office.  Gets on with the job and generally wins.  It will be an interesting final tomorrow.  I doubt he will let Krygrios upset him.
Last night I watched a mens doublematch for disabled players, ie: all in wheelchairs.    It was so exciting and our Brits are through to the final.
I feel that we have a lot of good young players on the up, and I especially will watch Jack Draper, he is only 20.   Mrs Bouquet

I've counted over 20 on several occasions (told you I was obsessed!  :lol:)

I think he does it when he's under pressure and got a lot to think about - luckily that doesn't happen too often...

Itís a long time since Iíve watched much of Wimbledon, but due to the heat today Iíve retreated inside & thorough enjoyed the menís final. What a fabulous game, but without giving it away, the best man won.
