    Some pictures from my Rafa stalking yesterday. I was in the high seats but my steward friends let me come really close while he practiced. AMAZING!!!!!!








    On the last two photos I was stood next to Sue Barker, haha.

    I didn't really speak to her, I said hello and she smiled back at me (she was mid-conversation and I was somewhere I shouldn't have been, so was trying to remain inconspicuous...)

    OK, well glad she was friendly (sort of.) I wish I could go to Wimbledon this year.

    So I may be going tomorrow (TBD), but I'm considering going for a Men's Singles Final ticket. I wouldn't have the money usually but I planned on the Broncos ticket I bought being more expensive/going to the Dolphins game too, so as that only cost me 65, I've got a bit of cash spare and I think we all know by now how much I LOVE Wimbles...

    Damn, did anyone see what happened to Serena? I'm no fan of hers but that was hard to watch, you know things are bad when the referee climbs down his chair mid game to see if you are good to continue.

    Obscure Aussie with massive ego beats Rafa. Aussie media has huge orgasm. Levitt, not so much.

    i've watched a couple of video's of Serena today. i wonder if she's diabetic or something like that. when my sugar is low, i look like she did. no coordination, wobbly etc. or she was drunk LOL

    Bloody hell, I know you really hate Australian sport and I agree we go overboard sometimes, but this kid has done something amazing and he's hardly obscure, he's been on the horizon for a couple of years now and I've been following his career since he won the Boys singles. I'm on the bandwagon!

    He's ranked #144 and I doubt anyone outside Oz had even heard of him except a few tennis tragics. Beating Rafa at Wimbledon is a huge achievement for sure. I just wish the Ego Bubble would show a shred of grace and humility about it. I'll say it again, Aussies are lousy losers but even worse when they win.

    ^^^^
    so true. though pat rafter was pretty gracious. he's still my favourite aussie tennis player ever. but remember philippoussis? talk about ego bubble. and anger issues. and being a dick on occasion.

    but i'm so glad rafa got beat. and the fact that he was taken out by a child only makes it better.

    she was incredible.
    she had no strength either, and everyone thought she couldn't take on the williams sisters and the rest of the 'new generation' of female players who could hit as hard as the men. she barely ever broke 100km/h on her serves and the williams sisters regularly broke 200km/h, but she was so damn tactical.
