I also totally agree. I rarely watch tennis these days because it has become so predictable & boring. There are no 'characters' these days. I long to see players like Connors, McEnroe, Cash, Becker, Noah, Borg, Ivanisevic et al. Players who really 'played' instead of standing at the base line & smashing the ball back with their over sized racquet's.

I see that lot and raise you a 'Nastase' ... what a player. He probably wouldn't win a set today, though, despite all that artistry and touch. Mecir was the last such character at Wimblenod.

Federer combines the best of both eras, he would be fine in the 80s and I think he could probably play tennis with a stick of wood if that was all there was.

I forgot to mention a nice face...

I wouldn't actually say I only like curvy girls, it's just the women that skulls has posted look like they really need a meal, I hate to see bones sticking out on a woman.

Maria Sharapova has a fantastic figure, she is quite petite but there are no bones or bits of skeleton sticking out.

I meant width wise.

I have to admit I didn't realise she was quite that tall though, I suppose she just looks smaller next to the behemoths of the Williams'.

JESUS she's 6 foot 2 apparently!!! I thought she was around 5'10. She's 2 inches taller than me, bloody hell!

I retract my comment then but the point I made is still valid though (ie I don't mind thinner girls if it suits them, it's when it looks as though they are bulimic/anorexic that I get put off).

Unbelievable, Nadal out to the world number 100? That's Djokovic's title retained then I guess, and we'll probably have the false hope of Murray making the final to be outclassed again...

Nadal out? - excellent ... maybe my foowing powers are improving. I've been hanging around JGK long enough. Foowing of Faisalabadian proportions.

Amazing, where the f*ck did this Rosol chap come from? Nadal tried his upmost to put him off with his usual slow playing gamesmanship but he was brushed aside. Glorious.

You'd have to think it was a one off performance though, in which case the semi-final will probably be the final essentially, 60-40 in favour of Djoko but with Nadal out I think Fed will be fancying his chances.

Would be good to see Federer take a seventh I suppose, perhaps an opportunity to bow out right on top like a Borg or Sampras perhaps? Can't see him trailing round the circuit ranked in the 20s in a few years' time.

A few players with a decent shot at a final appearance if Murray messes it up in that half now. Tsonga, Fish and Del Potro will fancy their chances.

Yeah, if he manages to win it at 30 it will probably be as good as it gets from now. I'd be very surprised if Nadal or Djoko are still even in contention for slams when they reach his age.

The next generation need to make a move soon if that isn't to be the case. No idea where the next new young Grand Slam champion is coming from.

I guess this era might be followed by an era where nobody dominates and it's called "boring" for having no stars, as opposed to the current time when it's called "boring" because it's always the same players winning!

Are you sure? Would have thought Djoko was miles ahead.

Surely he's miles behind the top two, hasn't won a Slam for a couple of years at least now?

Indeed, Aussie Open in 2010, so coming up to 2 and a half years. I don't know how the rankings work, but he's nearly 3000 points behind according to this, so I would be shocked if winning would get him ahead of Joke, even if Joke gets knocked out in the next round.

Nadal would have lost around 1000 points and Federer could gain more than a 1000 points with a win. Number 2 could be well within grasp.

Djokovic will retain the No. 1 ranking by reaching the Wimbledon final.

If Federer wins Wimbledon over someone other than Djokovic he becomes No. 1.
