    2011 Wimbledon

    The Canadian Raonic is on a crash course to play Nadal in the 3rd round if he makes it there. Haas in the second round could be tricky.

    My favorite player Tsonga, has a chance to make up for his collapse at the Aussie against Dolgopolov in the 3rd round.

    Some interesting draws out there.

    Isner vs. Mahut again in the first round!

    Isner and Mahut going round 1 again is awesome, good stuff!

    If Federer is playing like he did at the French Open I think he takes it. I really am looking for Del Potro to do some things, but he better start fast since he has a potential 4th round match against Nadal. Would also love to see the potential 4th round match between Troicki and Djokovic.

    On the Womens side I think Sharapova is going to come through on the top half and will meet Kvitova in the final. Even though she just lost a final to Bartoli I'm picking Kvitova to win, just think she will have a good tournament. But really who the hell knows on the women's side lol

    Tsonga and Woz are my two! Not that they'll win, they're just my favorites on either side. Really think Tsonga could have a good run here, same for Woz.

    Only bad thing is Wozniacki might have to play Sharapova. Wozniacki impressed me with her play today though. She actually brought out some agressive attacking play and it was working well. She doesnt need it early on in grand slams but she needs it in the second week.

    Ugly looking injury to Raonic. Looks really bad. Hope he's going to be ok.

    What a great win from Tsonga and what a performance from Dimitrov. He's got some future ahead of him.

    Yeah that was a good match. Also the two big comebacks today Soderling beating Hewitt from 2 sets down and Lisicki over Li Na. Atleast Ivanovic is playing well and her section is alot more open with Li Na and Radwanska gone.

    Was really hoping for Del Potro to pull it out but Nadal was just too strong in the tie-breaks. But yeah great day of tennis all around. Tsonga is through but his road is pretty tough from here, most likely have to beat Federer, Djokovic then Nadal to win, thats just not fair lol. Too bad Wozniacki lost, wanted to see her match up against Sharapova.

    Yeah but Del Po is back though, it's great to see. Tsonga has a chance against Fed, not sure if he will be able to do it though.

    Woz vs Pova would of been awesome, it's a bummer Woz didn't make it through. This is clearly Pova's title to win now!

    Everyone knew Tsonga had a slight chance to win but nobody could have thought it would happen when down 2 sets to Federer! Very impressive today from Tsonga what a match! Now hes trying to do what Berdych did last year beat Federer and Djokovic. Some awesome semi-finals from both sides await.

    Great performance from Tomic the last two weeks, I only had him winning two matches in a bracket I picked. Tomic and Lisicki for sure the surprises of this tournament. I picked Sharapova at the start to come through the top half but im hoping Lisicki can pull off the upset.

    Well its Nadal and Djokovic. Too bad im going to miss both finals, gonna record them though. Tsonga had a great run he did alot better than I thought at the start of the tournament.

    Props to Tsonga. Glad he's in shape and really playing well. Love him.

    Andy Murray is so soft. He'll never win a damn thing.

    Kvitova!! she closed it out. Finally watched the matches yesterday. Had a good feeling about her before the tournament and especially after I saw the draw. Great tournament she played alot of good matches. Djokovic saved his best for last, that was crazy how he beat Nadal. What a year he has had. Kinda feel bad for him next year though lol, he is going to have a TON of points to defend. That will be fun to see.

    Raonic out in the second round... he gets a lot of hype in Toronto because he's a local boy but will he ever win anything? I'm not a tennis fan, just asking for my own curiosity.

    If 'win' anything means a Major, probably not. Tennis is just too good right now.

    But he's a very good talent who I think could one day become top 5.

    That's what I meant by 'win', yea. Good to know. I figured as much.
