It's been a little over 24 hours since the best men's final in a few years wrapped up. Hats off to Nadal for making it that far (despite me thinking he would lose to Mardy Fish in the first round!) But how about Federer? It was great to see him getting tested and coming through. I like the fact that every Slam he wins, it always seems like the first one for him when it's over.
And congrats to Venus as well. A Tennis Talk, Anyone? reader brought up a good question to me (OK, it was my mom, but still!): Does her winning Wimbledon REALLY signify a comeback? With her game, she should always win Wimbledon. I hope it does.
I'm kind of shocked the Bryans lost in the finals: To me, those guys should have a Grand Slam or two: not titles, THE Grand Slam. Black/Huber took the ladies' crown and my man "Stretch," aka Jamie Murray, came through with a mixed crown partnering Jelena Jankovic.
And I usually don't follow the junior results too much, but I think Donald Young taking the juniors is a good thing. He's been on a kind-of decent tear since he got to practice with the Davis Cup squad back in the quarters. I actually think now that he's gonna be fine as a pro.
