its that time of year again and wimbledon is upon us
i thought id open a new thread for all you tennis fans to discuss the championships

will Federer be victorious for the 5th time, or will Nadal be able to change his game and reign on grass as well. or is it the plucky aussie Lleyton Hewitts time to win another grand slam and put todays defeat behind him

hawkeye, if the player feels the ball was in or out they can challenege (3 challenges available, one extra during tie breaks), the umpire refers to hawkeye technology which determines whether the ball was in or out.

tim henman, never liked the guy, not my kind of people, but got massive respect for what he has done at sw 19. People say he bottles it, but for years he has punched way above his weight, played in a classic tonight, 2 sets all and 5 all against carlos moya, and i really hope he goes on tommorow and wins, as a tennis player, fan and fan of british sport. he is a cock though, and his bird dont look so hot nowadays
