Wimbledon 2006

It's that time of year again when most of us (in the UK) go Tennis mad for 2 weeks. So who's gonna win? Can anyone stop Federer i.e the new pete Sampras. And how about Martina Hingis to win the ladies draw!?

We're actually fed up with football - who can think of tennis at this time? Apart from that I know less of tennis then of football, but I have to post something ;-)

lol, tennis is almost as fun to watch as footy, especially with the likes of Sharapova and her strange grunts everytime she hits the ball...but for me, tennis is about watching Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer play a great game while keeping their hair perfect. Gotta love tennis.....

yes, this is a very good reason for watching ... Do you still know Martina Navratilova and her uncomparable moaning and groaning?

Don't even get me started on the William's sisters... and I can never figure out why they have to moan or grunt... it's not like it'll help their game or make the ball fly faster...

The Williams sisters just freak me out with their way too short skirts and crazy grunting...

The 'grunt' has to go to Monica Seles.
While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.

They look neither Amazonian or Celtic to me.

amazing result. Murray offers more hope than Henman ever did. And he's scottish, not english. All the better!

He's British and that's all that matters! Great game...wonder how far he can get?
