Wimbledon 2012

So it's almost over. Finally, I can be more productive. I have been glued to the TV the past week watching tennis. Funny thing is, I don't even love the sport nor have actually tried to play it. It's one of those things that gets you addicted somehow.

Anyway, tomorrow is the women's finals, and because Lisicki is out, I'll be cheering for Radwanska. I'm not sure why, but I can't seem to bring myself to like Serena Williams especially after seeing her horrendously short outfits on the court.  And, of course, because of that little outburst of hers a year ago.

In the men's singles finals, there's Federer and Murray. I was actually hoping that Tsonga would win, but oh well. I'll be rooting for Federer because he's old like me. Plus, I find him to be such a classy and graceful player. Such finesse in how he plays! Definitely one of the tennis greats. Hopefully, he wins and go down in history by joining Sampras with 7 Wimbledon titles.

I was looking at some tweets about the match earlier, and this one is my favourite so far:

From Chris Shelford on Twitter: "When Roger Federer retires, he can replace HawkEye. This man just does not get challenges wrong, ever."
