@ossobuco,
Wow. I don't think anyone was calling for Murray to win in three. I guess that brutal semi took everything Fed had.

@engineer,
So happy for Murray!!! He did make mince meat of Federer, though LOL.

Congrats to our Ms. Serena, too!

@Walter Hinteler,
Ive just been watching Al Jazeera to get some actual news, and they did a piece on how Boris Johnson has come out of this really well, and is now the favourite for the next Tory leader. The introduction began ,'Even by British standards Boris Johnson is eccentric.' He was born in NYC, so conceivably he could run for president.

Thanks, a victory at Wimbledon has been a very long time coming.

@izzythepush,
Might be next year, when Wimbledon looks like Wimbledon again?

@izzythepush,
No Very Happy

But the traditional "surroundings" of the lawn (though it did like the km/h better than the usual mph) ...

Referee charged in husband's death

LOS ANGELES -- A professional tennis referee from Los Angeles has been arrested in New York City
on a felony warrant charging her with murdering her elderly husband in April.

The district attorney's office said Tuesday that 70-year-old Lois Ann Goodman was taken into custody
as she prepared to work as a referee at the U.S. Open tennis tournament.

She was charged with murdering her 80-year-old husband, Alan Goodman, in their Woodland Hills home.
Prosecutors allege she bludgeoned him to death with a coffee mug on April 17.

@Region Philbis,
Another whoa, Woodland Hills. I used to have a bias against Woodland Hills but I forget why, now. Something about everything being beige.

Bludgeon with a mug? Well, there's stress for both.

Not to joke, this is probably a sad situation.

I am becoming passionate about playing Tennis by watching Roger Fedderer but I have a question that my height is 5.8 feet and is it normal for Tennis or not?

@brenden99,
If you want to go pro you are likely too short, but if you want to have a good time your height is fine.

US Open discussion time. So far, we are entering round three with Venus losing again to Kerber (who is having an outstanding season), Clisters career ending in a second round loss and Roddick announcing his retirement after this tournament. Clisters announced her retirement a while ago but the US hardcourts have always been her strength so you hate to see her go out so early. I think everyone saw Roddick's retirement coming. Too much wear and tear over the years but he seems pretty motivated to make one last run. I like this write-up by Jon Wertheim over at Sports Illustrated. That leaves up with Venus. I know she wants to keep going, but how long is she willing to keep playing if she really can't compete with the top ten players?

No wonder Disney World didn't take off in China. They couldn't ride the rides.
