I assume they have, because otherwise there'd be plenty of whinging.

I only mentioned it humorously because there was a massive argument in a Wimbledon thread here a few years back. Good times.

Was that the one where Sismis and myself argued for 20 pages? It took him so long to realise that I was right.

Yeah was probably that thread.

Anyway, if Federer wins tonight it will be his 8th Wimbedon crown meaning he has won more Wimbledon titles than any other player.

:(

I thought Djokovic was on top for the whole match apart from the end of the fourth set. Great match.

Djokovic has matured a lot over the last few years and will have more opportunities to win Slams. Could reach double figures.

Yet another constructive, thought provoking post. You should become a journo, you'd give Caro a fight for the wakely...
