    I like them both so it's a win/win for me.
    Another all-Williams final...*yawn*...

    But, if it's going to be Serena vs. Venus, I'm definitely pulling for Serena! Something about Venus just bugs me...

    Fluff, I'll be interested to know what the mood is like in England now that Tim Henman didn't make it out of the quarterfinals...

    I love Mark Philippousis and like him way more than I ever liked that whiny bitch Pat Rafter.

    *not a Pat Rafter fan*

    Iobeck, true. *yawn* Venus and Serena are both great players but I'd like to see more competition against them.

    Tim lost.

    Kinda miserable, although not as bad as it was when England were knocked out of the World cup and the European championships on penalty kicks (damn that still burns )

    It;s been nearly 70 years since a Brit won Wimbledon.
    Tim has some finesse, but he's always likely to lose out to players wth more firepower.

    Oh well, next year...

    Unexplained,
    Thanks for picking up the banner and doing a splendid job. Well done!

    I haven't had the heart to post anything. Andre, my idol, was out before the Quarterfinals and then I kind of lost my enthusiasm. I really feel that this was his last chance. Well, except for the U.S. Open, but that's definitely it.

    Who knew Philippousis was going to come back big time? He'd been out for so long with injuries.

    Andy Roddick is cruising though. I have not seen the second men's semi-final but I hope I'm right when I'm picking him to win.

    I also like Grosjean and hate to see him lose.

    Oh well. It's still a great sport, but I would like to see the Williams Sisters defeated. I was rooting for Henin-Herdennes and Clijsters. Oh well!

    One of these guys will be Wimbledon Champ on Sunday!



    Philippoussis - Federer to play for Championship

    I personally think that Federer is a fantastic all-around player and I hope he wins.

    Your welcome.

    I'm suprised that Mark got this far.

    I wanted a Belgian/American final but the William sisters dominated the matches.

    The Wimbledon Champion 2003


    Roger Federer became the first Swiss man to win a Grand Slam title on Sunday, beating Mark Philippoussis 7-6 (5), 6-2, 7-6 (3) in the Wimbledon final. The gifted Federer, who was never threatened on his serve, has a chance to win many more majors.
