To think, Wimbledon's only a matter of days away! Especially after a pretty eventful French Open ending week before last. But I guess that's the schedule for you!
But before that gets going and all, I just wanted to take a look back at last week's Queens Club event won by Andy Murray, who became the first Brit to win that tournament in 70-or-so years. It's a very impressive result—especially the way he did it without dropping a set—and he's landed atop many a favorites list going into the big W. I think he will win the tournament, but I just can't see it this year.
Rather, I'm going with the big dawg, Mr. French '09 himself, Roger Federer. I know the draw isn't even out yet, but as questionable as I was about Fed's Slam prospects earlier this year, I've reversed course and feel as strongly as I did, but contradictory to that. That make sense? I think I lost myself on that one!
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I really don't see Federer losing many Major matches the rest of the year. Actually, I don't see him losing many more regular tour matches, either. I'm assuming that he must just be so relaxed now, because in his mind, I imagine, he can't see much more he has to do on a tennis court. I know Murray's been beating Fed a lot lately, but going into such an intense situation could have an adverse affect on him as well.
The fans could be in a treat with a relaxed Federer going about things!
