Wimbledon 2017 - congrats Garbine and Roger - 2017 Champions

Wow, Stan the man out in Rd 1 - bad knee...

Feddy skipped French Open for this - rooting for FedEx!!

Djoker, Murray and Nadal - Nadal is the strongest coming into Wimby but how much does he have left in the gas tank?

On the woman' side - pretty wide open with Serena out with the pending baby and Azarenka is back from having a baby of her own.....not even sure if Sharapova is in Wimby....

Predictions?

This year's Wimby should be known as the knee destroyer!!

Mattek-Sands down with an injury to her right knee...looks gruesome..

And can you believe Tomic? Dood "was bored out there".....at Wimby?!?

Dood has issues...he was dropped by racquet maker Head...good...

Oh how I missed the Wimbledon. There is no live experience like it. If you haven't gone, you need to go!

Haven't gone to Wimby live in person....definitely on my bucket list of things to do....that and need to try the strawberries and cream!!

Wow, down goes Murray in a 5setter against Querrey....nice to see Sam move into the semis!

The women side not sure who to root for....I guess Venus given she is the elderly statesman of the bunch!

Wins WITHOUT dropping a set the entire tournament! Amazing... I hope he doesn't play too many HC tourneys approaching the US open... I actually hope he skips Rogers cuts to stay fresh!

Just unreal... Cilic got destroyed but to be fair he played well pretty below his standards.

We'll never see another play the game like him.

What do you mean? You get a general admission ticket to go into the grounds, and then you can go and sit at any of the courts to watch whatever matches you choose. The exception to that is for two or three of the show courts. But you still see high seeded players on the non-show courts.

Watched both days at Bloor Cinema. Great venue for this event and will definitely be back again next year.

Hoping Garbine can come to Rogers Cup in Toronto this August but many players skip it...
