Wimbledon been plagued by injuries this year and the final was no different. That was a very forgettable final. However the history books will tell the true story. Federer = GOAT Ubercool

This could quite possibly be my last Andy Murray post on here. Looks like the hip injury is going to keep him out of many a tennis tournament in 2018 as well as 2017 now. Age won't be helping him with a comeback either as wrong side of 30 this year too.

I accept his career is over now. Thanks for the memories Andy. And allowing me to bump this thread so many times over the last decade. Almost certain British tennis won't give us another Andy in our lifetimes to support. And as for the many that hated him , well they won't even have anyone to hate on now.


A true underdog that fought hard to keep himself at the top of the game in an era of tennis greats, whilst beating them a fair few times along the way. Thanks for the many memories. You will be missed.

Bit soon to write him off, Even with his age and an operation, has potential to bag another slam.

What do I know? Laughing out loud

Just over two weeks later after that comment of mine we have a Brit* in the semi-final to face Cilic after Nadal retired against him just now.

Federer still in other side of the draw.

Murray beat Cilic in the semi-final of the Oz Open in 2010 to reach his first Grand Slam final where he got spanked in straight sets by Federer.

Agreed. Nadal ain't getting close now.
