I always love the weekend of the Wimbledon Finals, to me it is like counting down the days until Christmas.

this the year of the big girl, i guess. serena wins the aussie. now bartoli in the final today. she looks like she's 20 pounds too heavy.

Venus does have a tendency to go real cold at times, Bartoli just needs to hope that happens.

Ive gone to the mixed doubles on Court 3, Jamie Murray and Jankovic are a lot of fun to watch.

venus probably thought it would be a cakewalk (and it still might be) but i am sure that's what everyone who played bartoli this week thought.

they should stop babbling about bartoli's dad and his weird training methods. that's all women's tennis needs, another psycho tennis dad in the spotlight.

Bartoli got blown out of the first two games and had too many double faults. However, Williams already looks tired and frustrated and has started to spray stuff wide. Bartoli is just getting warmed up and has so far won her 3rd sets 6-2 or better. I was doubtful but I think Bartoli will pull through.

They don't look pretty when they hit the ball do they? Nothing graceful about the women's game of late.

you're right about that. plus, this is the worst-dressed final. or maybe it's just that the girls ain't cute.
Only a man would make comment like "the girl's ain't cute."

Anyway, it is the worse dressed women's final. Venus had said something about the skirt part of her outfit was too big so she couldn't wear it. My sister said she could have used a safety pin so we didn't have to watch her in booty shorts.
Bartoli needs some writstbands. They don't match her outfit :grin:. Maybe they're lucky wristbands.

That's the nature of the modern game: all power.
I've seen them both hit junk balls: low, dinky topspin shots that made the other hit into the net. And Venus was trying that slice stuff.

Bartoli is in control (after being down 3-0 she won four of the next seven games) but needs to get her serves in.
