Rant started

Hoping I won't be attacked... but... doesn't anybody find Zheng run a bit, aehm, strange? I mean she was injured for an year or so, comes back and has a Wimbledon QF... Well anyways, well played but I wonder why the Chinese players often have these great runs/injuries pattern?

Rant ended

You STILL haven't answered my question as to whether or not you're a big hockey lover,but I'll say that you're NOT crazy on THIS one.There's a mountain of evidence that shows how that government can rigidly control the movements of its star athletes,even NBA superstar Yao Ming.It would NOT be inconsistent of them to organize a schedule for certain "injuries",though we can't say for sure since we aren't doctors who've examined Zheng.

Sorry I forgot but I read the post

I'm not Canadian, I'm here since not long time. And believe me Canadians are not like what they want to appear to you. There is a lot of violence, poverty and racism going on. I guess who works abroad surely is good mannered and well educated, but this is not the norm here. It's not all pretty, it's very very rough.

The Tokyo pts were taken 52 weeks later, so i imagine its the same when a tournament is moved forward instead of back. Two sets of points for one tournament seems odd though, but i cant imagine they would have special circumstances for a tournament moved forward. Its just a guess.

Im kind of goign for Zheng, only becuase if she wins the whole thing then in 5 of last 6 slams Ana will have lost to eventual winner or won herself, which is meaningless, but a nice trend. It would be cool to see Elena win a slam too. In a Williams final, id back Serena.

Nah, i think Bruce is right. Canadians are so friendly that they apologize to furniture when they bump into it.

Re: The 2008 Grass Season: Looking Toward Wimbledon and GS #2

In for a penny,in for a pound;might as well get banned from this thread,too...

I've been critical of the Williams girls before though it was almost always Serena.This usually only happened after one of her sorry,excuse-filled blatherings following a loss(though I suspect that cult member Retard Richard had lots to do with her mindset).The truth is,the Compton gals have added SOOOOO much to women's tennis and I'd miss them A LOT if they left.

Having said that,another all-Williams final,which we're GUARANTEED to have on Saturday,is a terribly BORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRE-ing prospect.Sure,they're sisters so you'd hope that they'd love each other,but a crucial part of the major drama in sports is the win-or-lose finality of the championship match.Can you imagine the German players smiling and saying,"I'm so happy for Spain," following their Euro Cup loss? The team's coach would arrange for mental health evaluations.The idea of the loser happily celebrating with the winner afterwards COMPLETELY ANNIHILATES the suspense that goes with competition.

Serena had an AWESOME AO title last year,maybe the most dominant Grand Slam run of this decade...and Venus had yet another inspiring,uplifting comeback to her previous form with her Wimbledon championship...and both gals deserve tons of credit for their excellent play towards attaining another Slam here this year.As for the final itself,YAWWWWWWWWWNNN!I'll glance at the score in the late afternoon,prior to having dinner,on the ESPN website....Sincere congratulations to whichever one wins DESPITE the snooze factor.

that would be so cool because this would be the 3rd year in a row that the player who beats ana wins wimbledon
