    Wow!!! What a final!! That's the best one I've watched by a mile. (I should add that 3 sets of it took place while I was at Brighouse today, the forth I listened to most of in the car, and the fifth I watched at home so I didn't actually see that much of it, but what I did was awesome)

    Seconded. An awesome display of athleticism, technique and sheer guts from both players. I wanted Federer to win and he nearly did it, but you've got to admire Nadal's absolute refusal to be beaten.

    I've watched quite a lot of Wimbledon finals, never seen one that good. :clap:

    Just keep your eye out on the tennis forums - I'm sure they'd crop up saying the Umpire was biased ;)

    - so that's where you've been all day ... :rolleyes: (I bet the line-judges got slagged for their calls as well).

    Nope - working here, old bean....sorting out a shopping list for some sync to picture for a DVD.

    I have to admit I did skip off to watch the last bit of the final set (must remember to scratch that bit off the bill ;) )

    Well a Bryn was always going to win, quite funny that they had 2 bryns in the final and also their partners were both beginning with S.

    Oops, wrong Final!

    Well done Nadal, nice to see someone who looks absolutely shocked to have won.

    Good point. I thought the quality of the streaming of the match was also superb.

    I have also heard that the players felt the walk from the dressing rooms to the stage was too far, Also that having to warm up in front of the audience is something they wish to be changed.

    The challenging of calls is a good idea though! Can you imagine, I did not split that note, you cannot be serious!

    Would prefer the idea of movement breaks between drinks!

    Only saw it later on on highlights show. Was out for earlier sets and then flatmate got to telly first and put on some rubbish about Peter Andre and Jordan! Tried the live streaming on BBC site but kept cutting out. Looked great from what I saw.

    They both are good competitor in the tennis game, they both play sop well in this field, in Sunday Nadal beat the Feddere in six time in eight grand slam final, this is such a nice game, they both give good competition in this game.

    How well? My band is intersted in signing a new sop player, but need to know a little bit more information. PS our rehearsals are Mondays AND Wednesdays. We would not accept them missing both rehearsals if they have other commitments.
