    LoL, I just looked and found out that Agassi wore a wig in the 1990 French Open, I never knew he did that.

    playing tennis with a wig on?

    Nadal, the butt-picker, - can't stand to watch it yecch - just won the Men's Final.

    ^ now you mention it, connery was wearing a hairpiece as early as goldfinger, which was only his 3rd outing

    obviously, that has nothing to do with tennis and i don't intend to repeat the connery/wimbledon joke just to make it relevant

    Watching Wimbledon online stream, it's addicting.

    Go Roger!

    Wow Gilles Muller just beat Nadal at Wimbledon, dashing the hopes of those who wanted a Federer vs Nadal final.

    It was a 5-set match, almost 5 hours.

    Germany has already said Goodbye to Wimbledon.

    Angelique Kerber and Alexander Zverev both lost their games.

    i must admit, i'd have been quite surprised if it had turned out to be a fvn final - neither player is quite at the level they have been in past years - still excellent players but time catches up with us all

    Zverev is very good, youngest player in top 20, look to see much more of him in future.

    Yes, Federer and Nadal are both in the last twilight of their careers, it will be sad to see them go; but as you say time marches on.

    Fortunately youtube is full of past matches of them to see

    I love watching Federer sometimes it's like magic what he does.
