Post US Open
Not sure if there are any tennis fans on here, but Blake vs Aggassi sounds like one of (if not the) greatest game of all time. Certainly the greatest comeback I have ever heard.

I think Federer is a wonderful sportsman, but I hope he gets injured or something..... Come on Andre.

Incidently, pre this torunament the odds on Andre winning Wimbledon 2006 were fantastic. I think it was around the 80/1 shot - for the 7th best player in the world and a previous winner.

I actually watched 10 minutes of the Williams sisters. Serena might be our answer at tight head-check is she's got a Welsh Granny? :D

Good final, it was looking good for Agassi during the first three sets, going 2-1 down though was the killer blow.

I think two five setters in a row cost him dear, it was the most rattled I have seen Federer (I didn't see his recent pre US open losses) in a long time.

Hope thats not his final match, I think he has 1 major left in him.

Andre is a really good guy and they have a great advert over here for their little boy. Maybe Gavin will do the same?

He's been a real hero of mine. What was he ranked during the mid/late 90's - I think it went to 227. Even his rivals were saying "give up the ghost". Now, he's outlasted them all.

Not sure what he got up to to go from 1 to 227, but worked his way back to the top.

To win Wimbledon with his game is also very impressive.

Steffi is probably a good influence!

Definately is for him maintaining the top ten ranking at 35, but I think he got back to the top before that starting seeing each other. I could be wrong mind.

I think she is making a "one-off" semi serious comeback match aswell and Monica Seles has been hinting about a return.
