    Tennis channel has the Wimbledon roof ceremony on. Had no idea they were going to have Mixed doubles. Agassi and his wife vs Tim Henman and Kim C. Very impressed with the ceremony overall. Full of Class as usual. Those brits,,, of course..:)

    How nice is it to see that cool lovely, lush green after having seen that messy, dusty red dirt for the last two months?

    What on earth is Agassi doing with that OLD Donnay racket ??? Does this mean he has been using the Donnay his entire career and we didn't know about it ???????

    Totally agree! :)

    It's too bad they can't keep the grass looking so lush and green throughout the entire fortnight of Wimbledon. :(

    Yeah. Now that they have the new roof - next on the list should be replaceable surface that they swap out for each match to make sure it's a pristine grass court for each match!

    Did you guys just see that? That was hilarious! The two women refuse to serve and volley so they had their own crosscourt baseline rally while both Henman and Agassi stood at the net with both their hands on their hips just watching the rally. Funny as heck! :lol:

    I would like to have gone to this, but having said that I would've hated missing the Madrid final. Oh well, Wimbledon's just round the corner...

    is it just me, or have you noticed court is a bit faster and lower bouncing?

    I like how Agassi and Steffi show affection esp when Steffi hits a winner....this is fun....thanks, Tennis channel...

    Completely disagree:)

    I love the way the baseline looks late into the 2ns week of the tournament... thats what makes Wimbedon IMO! The lush greeness just doen't look right to me. Just my 2 cents.

    Graf would beat up on a lot of today's girls.

    Most of them don't even see slices during their matches.

    Agassi was still hitting as hard and flat as some of the guys in the top 10. Murray said, he could see Agassi being competitive on the tour over a three set match.

    Steffi was also hammering the forehand. It was as if she had never left the game. I wonder if the tournament director will give them an invite to play mixed doubles at SW19?.

    Guess this isn't surprising but Kimmie not having any trouble with Graf slice backhand...... i think she is trying real hard not to blow out Steffi. and keep it close..
