    Alright Ms. Townsend!

    Her attire and appearance looks more flattering than Serena...


    Nice tux on Federer...

    I knew that all of the mens and womens champions across the different events were invited to the dinner, but i didn't know the girs and boys champions attended as well. How exciting for them.

    That's a very good pic of Serena. I like Fed's tux a lot.

    I've always wondered what time this Champions "dinner" actually starts. I mean, many Wimbledon finals don't end until very late in the day or evening (like Sampras's 2000 win over Rafter which ended after 9pm). By the time they are done with the awards ceremony, pictures, all the various media interviews, official press conference, showering and getting dressed in a tux, it's got to be like close to midnight. So what time is this "dinner" anyway?

    Wow! Serena actually made herself look pretty! I still think Fed's smiles look forced.

    It does probably start fairly late. But, why would it matter?

    Is this dinner really just for the winners only? Or finalists are invited too?

    I saw picture of Luke Saville (Juniors finalist) but not (Peliwo) the winner.

    Because then it's not really a dinner. I doubt all the other people attending (other than the men's champion) can hold out until midnight before having dinner. Why not have it on the following evening?

    I've often played on a court right next to her at Uniprix Stadium in Montreal. It's hard to concentrate. :)
