    After being up 2-0 in the 3rd, Murray has dropped 4 straight.

    He had this thing in a death grip, up 2 sets and a break.

    This could be one of the greatest games of tennis ever played at Wimbledon. Ridiculous.

    If I was Murray, I'd go down to my skibbies, throwing all my clothes in the crowd and maybe even throw the skibbies into the crowd.

    Sad to see James Blake eliminated in the first round, would really have liked to see him make a deep run. Same with Venus Williams, I've always liked both her game and her personality.

    Potential spoiler if there is a delayed broadcast:

    US Open update in white.


    Bryan Brothers advance, as do Jack Sock and Roger Federer.

    Looks like I can't use the "Another game for Milos" line because Raonic lost.

    For being a Canadian, he sure played that last set like an American.

    Re: Tennis...Anyone?

    Wawrinka beats Murray.? wow will wonders never cease. ! I mean I can't count the number of times I have watched roger demolish him. the times are certainly changing. Right now to me, no one can touch Nadal. not even close. I was in ny this week and the number of Italians and Spanish who came to NY just for the open is incredible.

    The Men's final is going on right now. What is it on Monday, and why isn't it on any real TV station? It didn't seem that there was that much in the way of rain delay.
