I hope it will be on Centre Court and televised for all us BBC non-interactive people :angel: It is really tough to call. Both Mirnyi and Zheng played brilliantly today, especially Max who was just on fire ( even though he really struggled with returning Likhotseva's serve at times :o ) Bob and Venus have been playing great too so it should be a classic match :bounce:

I voted that Vee would carry the match but I think Bob is actually going to carry the match. I hope they do it!!!

OMG...I love that picture! I think that Vee will carry alot of the points. Isn't Bryan still in the men's doubles? He's probably going to be tired!

it's not a joke it's actually entertaining and fun to watch, it's far better than some of the boring singles matches that were played this week. (I'm not going to name names) ;)

Vee bob should win, Zhengs 2nd serve and 1st serve for that matter with be crushed, the returns of Vee today were brilliant she was like belting even the mans serve, its gonna be a good match but i think Zheng will be overpowered in the end

Well Jie and Max are ranked number two so they have no way of upsetting VeeBob, VeeBob can only do the upsetting :lick: :lick:

i think veebob will win-zheng's size and power difference will probably be the difference

Though Jie and Max are seeded and Vee/Bob aren't, it seems as if most people are expecting Vee/Bob to win so Jie/Max can "upset" Vee/Bob :p

Does not matter u can only upset the higher ranked player, no matter who people are rooting to win. Don't try to change the rules now.

I'm not gonna vote in hopes not to jinx VeeBob. Hopefully they'll win the tournament though. It's gonna be a good match.

don't care......mixed doubles is a joke.......well, a bunch of other folk care, because this thread has gotten about as many replies as the ladies final thread.

and here's a newsflash: it's a final, one player is trying to complete her career slam, another overcome choke demons and justify her #1 ranking, and its a singles match. but go figure, some of us would rather talk about Venus' socks than discuss the momo-justine match. :lol:

and when Venus and Serena played for the doubles match final, it got better ratings than the men's final. :eek:

only thing more intriguing would be a mixed doubles final pitting: Bryan/Williams against Bryan/Williams. :lick:

I want Max and Jie to win. Bryans are too cocky and bigheaded. I think Jie and Max make such a beautiful pairing too.

As Ellery said, Vee and Bob seem to be the favorites, so if Jie and Max won, I think it would be an upset. Many people have picked Vee and Bob to win the tournament.

Well I think Venus is a much better player than Jie. Granted Jie has more doubles experience I still think Venus can be more of a force in this match than Zheng. Bob and Max are both extremely good doubles players and thats pretty much a toss up so I think tomorrow's match will depend on the women!
