My prediction: Federer in the final. About as unexpected as Manchester United winning the league. Unless he's been knocked out that is.

I'd knock him out if he came round my house.

They should put the Williams sisters in the mens comp. They look like men.

EDIT:

And Mandy McFlurry in the womens game as he looks like a woman. (well, more than the Williams sisters do) :lol:

they would be destroyed by the male players and in fact have been, when Braasch (who was ranked about 200 in the world) beat Venus 6-2 and Serena 6-1.

I predict Tomsk and Great Uncle Bulgaria to make the final.

^ Unwise to discount Orinoco there.

And surely Madame Cholet's a cert for the women's title.

Are you talking about things the everyday folk leave behind?

I know someone in real life who is called Tobermory. Fact.

I do not know someone who is called Bungo though. Thusly is the cosmic balance maintained.

Yeah i love a bit of tennis. Wish they played more games at night though so I could see them after work.

Can't see past Serena Williams for the women's. Would like Murray to win (but don't throw me in with the Wimbledon spectators, most of them make me cringe).

I worked with someone called Kenton Locke and have a mate called Clayton Green!
