It's that time of year again, the most famous and popular tennis show on earth. Who else is eagrely awaiting the beginning of Wimbledon this year? Will we see another Federer masterclass? Will Henman EVER win?(no chance in my books) And is there any hope in the British game beyond Tim.

No, you can not be serious! Yes, you can. tongue.gif

Did you see the program on her ealier? It was amazing to see how she lives now that she has won. It's a bit of a shame though because she is doing loads of advertising. I think the fame may go to her head.

Yes, what happened to Henin though and that other Belgian. And what about the Williams sisters, definitely disappeared of late.

yeah its a shame. mind you, if you were in her position, would you refuse someone who said they would give you millions of pounds (or dollars!) just to pose. its not like shes doing it for playboy or anything.
Hopefully she will be focused on the tennis.

I think the best professional around is Roger Federer. Hes the only man to stay around as the undisputed best....hewitt lost it, so did roddick, but federer looks like as long as he stays fit he will be the best for a long time.

Ah yes, that guy from my country. Yes I think he will replace Henman as British number one. Less said about Rusedski though, the better, I think!

Murray is good, I just hope his ankle is ok. But what happened to all the other "talent" like Bogdanovich? I remember him in particular because in year 9 I got to go to Wimbledon with the school and we saw him. The teachers told us to not accept any tickets if we got offered any as they could be fake, so when this couple offer my friend and I centre court tickets we turned them down *argh*. It was only after we told the teachers that they said outside Wimbledon itself. ARGH!

I hate wimbledon! My brother, on the other hand, is a tennis fanatic and plays for about 8 hours a day in the holidays. So I will probably be watching it!
