    Yes, yes...I'm super gay, I know.

    This is like the happiest day of the year for me. I love this shit. Tennis!!!

    It's Roger Federer, the greatest player of all-time, vs Andy Murray, who is looking to be the first British man to win Wimbledon in nearly 100 years.

    Starts at 9 a.m. ET, on ESPN. If you aren't a fan of the sport, this would be an exciting time to give it a chance.

    ...discuss?

    My info button says 9am to 3pm.

    Do they replay this shit right after or does it take 6 hours to complete a match? :worried:

    Wimbledon wins over the Tour de France. At least the tennis players aren't sitting on their asses during the game like the bicycle riders.

    You are not gay. Most people do not like tennis because they haven't ever played it, or if they have played it they suck at it.

    When you have put in the time to be able to play and have the control to hit the ball as hard as you can and still put the ball where you want it to be, it is such an addicting game. As an individual person sport you have a greater feeling of accomplishment.

    It's so funny to see someone that has no idea what they are doing smack at the ball like a retard.

    Wimbledon taught me the word "fortnight" when I was about 10 years old.


    Kinda like that "4 score and 7 years ago" stuff.

    "fortnight" really is one of those words that doesn't sound right unless spoken by a Brit. "whilst", too..

    it just seems so pompous, yes it's a British tournament, but you don't hear "fortnight" at the British Open, and you won't hear it during the Olympics.
