    One to watch not on the list is the German Dustin Martin, he knocked out Nadal easily at Halle last week, his style is unorthodox much like Gael Monfils who I also like to watch

    US tennis is a mess in recent years. I'll probably pull for Murray.

    For the women's draw I would say keep an eye out for Madison Keys, holy crap that girl has power, dare I say it more so than Serena Williams? I think Sharapova might nick it this year. She's been looking hot this last year... wait a sec, pun not intended!

    As for the men's draw, I think it's wide open this year. Nadal might have annihilated literally everyone at Roland Garros this year but his grass court play was severely lacking the week after. I can also say the same for Murray, since he had that back operation late last year (which meant he couldn't attend the ATP finals in London) he also hasn't been quite the same fitness wise, but then he does have the home crowd. He played rather $#@!e at Queens so I'll say that was his off day - BIG off day. Djokovic is always one to look out for no matter what. He'll most likely get to the final. Keep an eye out for Dimitrov and Stepanek, those two played stunning Tennis at Queens.

    Well going through Nadal's matches I had a feeling he wouldn't get through but holy moly, Kyrgios played a blinder, twice! If he plays like that again then I can see him playing Federer in the Semi's as I don't think Raonic stands a chance. Then again both Raonic and Kyrgios both have BIG serves.

    Federer is on FIRE, like totally red hot fire and he is playing in a very very different way to the last few years (how everyone else plays). He has certainly changed things around and has been doing a lot more serve and volleying like the good old days, amazingly it's working out. I suppose it's easier too when you're older as there's less running around but still. I think he'll go into the final but Stan Wawrinka will be a tough opponent as well as Kyrgios.

    Djokovic hasn't been playing too well this year though Cilic shouldn't pose much of a problem. Cilic just hasn't progressed in the last few years like the other guys at the top have. Djokovic did that that scare last week though he seems to be over it now. I don't think he'll beat Murray.

    Speaking of Murray, another one who is seriously on fire! Dimitrov is going to be a tough test and I think it will prepare him again Djokovic for sure. If Murray beats Dimitrov, Djokovic, and Federer to win Wimbledon then you can certainly say that he had one hell of a tough draw. Let's just hope that he has saved enough energy from last week and Monday.

    The women's is an open draw this year. I am SO glad that Lisicki went through but it was really odd what was happening out there, the amount of double faults clearly showed that there was something wrong. It did seem to clear up towards the end of the last set though but well done getting back into it!

    Bouchard and Kerber is going to be a fascinating match. I honestly don't know who will win that but I would not be surprised if Kerber won it, especially after the current high she has from beating the incredibly stunning and drool worthy "orgasm every shot" Sharapova. At least she got the French Open.

    Kvitova and Safarova is going to be an interesting match but I think that Kvitova will go through to the final in straight sets and most likely face either Kerber or Halep. In fact I would love to see a Halep vs Kvitova final. I would have put my money on the lovely Lisicki but I think her shoulder is going to cause her problems tomorrow against Halep.

    My predictions for whom gets to the finals: Murray, Federer, Halep, Kvitova.

    Murray is out.
    I didn't expect it to be a walkover for Murray but I certainly didnt expect Dimitrov to make Murray look like an amateur, which he did.

    Well in the interview Dimitrov instantly said "Murray didn't seem right during warm-up". Considering that they train together frequently, I guess he knew that as long as he played a faultless match then he would've won comfortably and that's what happened. Well I did say at the start of the thread to watch out for Dimitrov and I guess I'm being proved right now.

    Djokovic was lucky as Cilic ran out of steam. I am surprised that he gave Djokovic a hard fight for the first 3 sets. Dimitrov though I think is going to beat him unless Djokovic can get even his act together.

    The Federer vs Wawrinka match going on now is a really close one. I wonder when Raonic vs Kyrgios will start. Now THAT I have got to see.

    Bouchard played astoundingly but is going to have a real fight against Halep.

    Both the Footy and the Tennis has been amazing this year - Commonwealth games after!

    Federer is the all rounder anda master and GOAT and the only player to stop Nadal wining 10/10 French Open, but Nadal just has more fight in him and has beaten Federer, Djokovic, Murray, in fact all the top players more than they beat him. He has so much aggression in every shot he plays just watch the balls after he hits them, they curve much more than any other player, what looks like is going wide suddenly curves back in and lands on the line.

    Also he is right handed except for tennis where he plays left handed, that alone Shows how much commitment he has towards the game and wanting to be the best.


    If he was overrated he would not have won 9/10 French Open titles.

    Or even won the Grand Slam! Only Federer is the only player to have pulled that off and funnily enough Federer has won the French Open once and Nadal has won Australia once. I do feel sorry for Federer though, he'll never get that elusive Golden Slam to complete his collection - Nadal has got the complete collection though and I think the only player, along with Agassi, in history to manage it for men's singles.

    Overrated? I think not! However I still regard Federer as the greatest Tennis player of all time.

    Petra Kvitova vs Eugenie Bouchard final on Saturday @ 14:00

    Tough one to call, Bouchard has played great and is on a surge up the ranks, but I think Petra being being in this position before and winning Wimbledon in 2011 might just do it

    Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic final on Sunday @ 14:00

    My money is on Federer he played superbly all tournament has not lost a single set. Novak on the other hand only just about scraped through, it was close to going to 5 sets his semi final match today.

    Check this out, this guy is up and coming star for sure.

    I never thought Bouchard would beat Halep but wow, that issue that Halep had in the second set killed her off unfortunately. Kvitova though is playing sublime Tennis as well so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top of that one. Nice to see another Canadian in the finals again. I think Kvitova will just about edge it.

    And I certainly said it and it happened, Djokovic sorted his act out finally and good grief Dimitrov gave him a fight and a half! I honestly didn't know who was going to win that match as every single point could have gone either way. Federer though had a sonvincing win and didn't have any problems against Raonic. Raonic needs to remember that when his first serves goes in against the top players, they WILL be coming back at you.

    I have my money on Federer though, a single game lost in the championship, that's it.

    Well the women's doubles I didn't watch but apparently it finished in 52 minutes... at least the men's doubles was one hell of an amazing match, I really didn't know who was going to win, it was so back and forth and high level throughout.

    Thats why I say ladies should do best of 5 in the slams, it can be over way too quickly.

    The mens doubles match was awesome.

    Damn Federer didn't win
    To be honest Djokovic was playing better all the way through and lost the sets he did due to his concentration slipping.

    That 4th set was crazy, it was break after break after break! It's a shame Federer lost though as I would've loved to see him get his 8th. This is probably this last chance at a Grand Slam I think before you have the younger generation taking control next year.

    Poor Fed, i really thought he would do it once he won the 4th, but i think the 5th was a bit too much for him.......with all the UE etcs. HE is still the GOAT imo, but i think that was his last chance to win a GS.

    Pleased for Novak as he is my 2nd fav player after Fed. So it was a bittersweet for me!

    164 aces... unbelievable! Imagine if he got to the final, do you think in a few years time he might break the 200 barrier when his serve improves more?

    I think Andy Rod$#@! got over 180 at Wimbledon during the year he lost to Federer in the final.
