Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh I felt so sorry for the nation of Britain yesterday. So this is the way it will be for another few years. Poor Andy Murray and that weight he has to bare.

I don't understand why the Brits can't produce a Wimbledon winner, surely the money from the Davis cup and Wimbledon itself going back into the grass roots of tennis in Britain should produce a score of winners. But no.

They will just have to accept it, as we have, the British isles are shit at sport.

I believe the English habit of 'Press Hype' has a role to play in the failures of their sportspeople.
The footballers, boxers, tennis playes start believing the hype and their 'right to win', only to come crashing back down to earth at the hands of a more focused/prepared individual or individuals.

I think that is spot on, they are told they are the best, then they believe it, only to be shattered by the reality of other equally competent opponents. That must tear lumps into the psyche of a sports persons long term confidence.

The best example I can think of is Micheal Owen when he burst on the scene, he was good, but anything from that hype he had was only going to lead to disappointment. The same could be nearly said for Wayne Rooney. Imagine having to live with such expectation.

I'm loving it. They both broke each others serve in the first 2 games.

Petra is playing great. At the moment she deserves it.

There was a beautiful picture in the paper the other day where she was smiling and looking up to the sky. It was so natural and she looked like an angel

Didn't realise that Bjorkabitch has beat Nadal 4 times this year already. Should be a great final!

Superb Djokovic beats Nadal to win first Wimbledon title

New world number one Novak Djokovic beat defending champion Rafael Nadal in four sets to win the Wimbledon men's singles title for the first time on Sunday.
Djokovic produced some sublime tennis to race through the opening two sets, and although top seed Nadal forced his way back into the match to win the third set, Serb Djokovic sealed a famous victory 6-4 6-11-6 6-3 in just over two-and-three-quarter hours.
Djokovic came into the tournament as the second seed, but was the in-form player of 2011 after losing just one match all year -- a run of form which ensured he would take the number one ranking on Monday regardless of the result of the final.
Being a BBG - Wimbledon's unsung heroes
The pair had won the two previous grand slam events this season, Djokovic in Australia and Nadal in France, but the 24-year-old from Belgrade had won all four matches against Nadal this year -- all in tournament finals.
