Mac at last said something sensible and nice:
"Marion, born to be a tennis player, not an athlete, wielding her racquet like a paint-brush and Delivering her Picasso today!"

Sublime, Mac, have a bit more of whatever you're drinking!!!! Magic Applause

So lovely that Wimbledon and BBC show the post-match Winner's walk behind the scenes!
And how cute Marion is not letting go of her towel, almost like a comfort blanket Rose

Yeah. Take drugs. 
Read Chomsky and become a political activist. 

Become a recluse like japanese young people do, don't leave your room for the next 4 years.
Or like that film 'In the Realm of the Senses' where you turn your back on society and have sex constantly all day.

Or have a baby and train it from the age of 18 months to be a tennis future No.1.

Look at Jercy Janowcz. He was a homeless orphan just 14 months ago. Now he'll be the go to model for Nike's XXL range of sportswear.

Doesn't Greman tennis deserve it? I don't think after Graf there has been a GS winner from Germany.
Never liked Graf.
German tennis is fine, but a bit soulless for me.
I do like Haas and Kohlschreiber, but rarely find them exciting to watch. Not much flair and thrill, you always know what you get with them.
And they are so dull on top.

aaaah, that explains the "mental" bit...

I am very happy for JJ, he's really got the right mindset as well as talent and the game for big things. Will be interesting to see what he does next.

As for Radwanska, she is a good addition on WTA and I wish there were many more players like her in terms of ball-striking and "size", just playing a different game.
She is doing really well holding her own in this era of huge powerful women.

Strange it comes from you, a Djokovic fan. Among the top players, Djokovic and Nadal and Ferrer are the ones with you you can always know what will you get with them. Is always predictable  how are the points going to be. I can easily say what the match could be like tomorrow because its easy to know what will they do. Same old same old. See on, and you've seen it all.

But I don't blame you. Its  a typical fan's judgement. Haas and Kohli are so easily likable for their tennis, its surprising you call them dull.

Lisicki was more mentally spent that anything else I felt. She already caused too many upsets, it was going to be hard to pull herself up for another big occasion. Bartoli's path was much easier as most of her opponents were being beaten by someone else. I could even say the start alined well for her.

Before the match Lisickihad won all their 3 meeting. But many long matches and the emotional energy spent on those, she just couldn't bring up her best.

I hope its going to be forward for her here on.

I was surprised JJ game as well, but his game just clicked on the grass well. His shot selection is sometimes quite wild. He needs to limit an amount of drop shots, which he does not get a chance to play so often on hc anyway. But JJ is the most typical example of a gutsy player as we really need atm. So Thumbs Up

Same with Marion.

She would have probably never have made it in East Europe where they seem to produce or manufacture the monotonous baseline mental midgets.

 I agree with this. Other schools like the Czech, italian, argentinian and south american schools are also trying to get the most out of talent....and the Swiss schools of course...

 Indeed good to read...I missed that one...he was pretty critical of her most of the match if not tournament. It was interesting to read the BBC commentators (Sam Smith, Davenport, Mc and others) talking about the chances the 4 semi finalist had to win the title....Most put Lisiki top and Bartoli last.....While for me with better legs it shoudl have been Rads...or Bartoli...very close.
