Archives: Wimbledon 2008, Day 1

In Archives, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Wimbledon on June 23, 2008 at 5:23 pm
The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club would be having their annual major tennis event aka Wimbledon starting today. For those who are unaware, grass is the playing surface and Roger Federer is the man to beat. There is much talk about how he is vulnerable but we shall see. I left him at home, having already won the first set against Hrbaty. Serena was playing but apparently Mary Jo Fernandez thought it best that I watch Kevin Kim play instead. Nevertheless here are the updates thus far.
Roger won the first set.
Juan Carlos Ferrero was up on Sam Querry the 6’6″ American
Marcos Bagdatis was leading I forgot who he was playing
I believe the American Spadea was tie with the Swede Johansson
Nicole Vaidasova was already in the second round.
Serena is playing but I am not sure about the score other than it was 1 game all.  I would try to get to my connections to update on the results.
The story of the tournament is will Roger get to number 13 and a 6 consecutive Wimbledon. Brad Gilbert has predicted a Novak vs. Nadal finals with Andy Roddick being the spoiler.
As for the women, the draw is interesting with the Williams sisters, the most dominant grass court players of this tennis generation on opposite side of the draw as well as the Serbs. The crown is for the taking, who wants it bad enough will win. I don’t see nothing but spectacular tennis to take the ladies’ title.
Send all questions and comments. They are all appreciated.
PS. There will be no Roger Federer bashing. There is a zero tolerance for that sort of behavior.
