Wimbledom 2017


Recommended Posts


 It`s that time of year again, Wimbleton`s ladies strut their stuff and fashions on and off court, along with their ball gripping and tossing skills.


Now that Serena William`s is out due to a technicality from her love match, which of the remaining field will take advantage and take a firm grasp of the trophy on offer.


Where the men are concerned Swiss, Spanish or other ??


TV broadcast starts 8.30pm tonight alternating on the 7 & 7TWO channels check local TV guides for further info

claimed as an Ipswich girl, but what`s a 45 minute peak hour traffic trip distance :lol:

Barty had every chance to win the match, unfortunately was not able to capitalise on the many opportunities that went her way.

Kyrgios limped in and limped out of Wimbledon in 2 sets, so much potential so little gray matter.

Admittedly, the Aussies faced tough round 1 draws, some stood tall in going down fighting and a couple again showed their renowned poor attitude and lack of mental spirit.

Kokkinaris went down, but with battling almost 2 years of serious injuries showed his class by only being beaten by Del Potro`s cool and calm experience and great power hitting when needed.

Tomic gone, took to the court his 2017 poor form and poor attitude.

Jordan Thompson went down but had his consistant never say die attitude to the end.

No Aussie male advanced to the 2nd round.

Arina Rodionova, (pre-tournament thought to be only capable of getting 1st round appearance money)  defeated a player 127 rankings above her, took 7 match point attempts to become the only Aussie through to the 2nd round, well done.

Daria (Dasher) Gavrilova gone/dashed. what can one say… is short, is blond, is funny….

Thanks Kelvin, I`ve always had an in deep interest in the female form, umm, errr, fashions :angel: :P

Arina Dodionova went down fighting, her efforts will push her up the rankings. No Aussies left in the mens or ladies singles draw. A couple of Aussie pairs still alive in the mens doubles draw.
