Wimbledon - who's going to win?


Strawberries and cream season is here... oh, and a spot of tennis!

Who'll be tuning into Wimbledon this year?🆒
Any early bets on who's going to win, and are any Brits in the running?😕



And how can you chat about Wimbledon without mentioning the food?!:rolleyes:

Would you believe that each tournament sees the players get through 2195 kgs of bananas, 303,277 glasses of Pimm's served and 166,055 portions of strawberries and cream served!

๐Ÿ˜‚ Too right Wozeeta ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘, spot on! Thank you Nat ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Came straight on here to say just this second watched the 15 year old Cory Gauff ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธknock out Venus in two straights ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€, OMG she was awesome, and soooooo deserved it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. What a super composed player, and beautiful post match interview immediately after ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. What an absolute superโญ๏ธ she is most definitely going to be!

Tad too soon IMO to lift the trophy ๐Ÿ†this year, so my (virtual) moneyโ€™s going on Ashleigh Barty๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

WOWSA what a fantastic super awesome first day of play, and ๐Ÿ’on cake is Andy Murray saying heโ€™s 99% certain his mixed doubles partner is gonna be Serena ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘!
@Bev great game for the first day:raisinghands: every time she didn't quite get match-point was more and more tense! Her parents' reaction was so great to see too:D

It'd be great to see Andy and Serena play doubles together, is there a deadline it has to be decided by? Surely it'd be really difficult if they've never played doubles together before 😕

As well as the tennis tonight is the football women's world cup semi-final, England vs USA, so much sports on at the mo🆒

Another great day so far at Wim ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ‘. Wins for Konta ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง, Rafa ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’•, Serena ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธand Roger ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ.

Sad to see Maria Sharapova forced to retire from her first round match today with an arm injury. Had it taped, but could hardly hit a backhand in the third set so called it a day at love - 5 down ๐Ÿ™. First year since 2003 that sheโ€™s been unseeded here ๐Ÿ™€. I was quietly hoping sheโ€™d do really well, as always loved watching her game.


Nice to see Kate Middleton in the Royal box ๐Ÿ‘ธ, first watching Jo Konta then switching courts to watch Serena ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.


Iโ€™m sticking with the ๐ŸŽพall eve, and most certainly wont be watching any โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ

PS Nat, I think itโ€™s tomoz they have to decide re the mixed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคž

Such good friends tho Nat, off the court and on social media. She genuinely appreciates all the good he does for women's tennis, so they have good relationship. I think thatโ€™s prob the key to a good doubles relationship, half the battles done if thereโ€™s a great bond already there ๐Ÿ‘, and if youโ€™ve got two top players like that in singles, I doubt theyโ€™ll go far wrong if decide to deffo play the mixed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. Really really really hoping ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™

Cory Gauff, a breath of fresh air - going to watch todayโ€™s match on catch up ๐ŸŽพ๐ŸŽพ
Did anyone watch the Nadal v Kyrgios game last night? :eek:

Such a good match... pretty shocking and unprofessional in my opinion though that Kyrgios has been saying he 'wanted to hit' Rafa with one of his shots (BBC article on this here) and think Rafa made a great point that "It is not dangerous for me, it is dangerous for a line referee, dangerous for a crowd"😕

In other sports there's repercussions for dangerous play.. are there any for tennis?

His press conference was beyond appalling! Itโ€™s one thing making a โ€œlegalโ€ shot like he did at the opponent, but at that speed, and with that attitude of wanting to hit his opponent? .....come on! Then to add the pathetic comment re Rafa having โ€œhow many slams, how much money in the bank?โ€ Pffffff ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก. A lot lot lot more than youโ€™ll ever have lad, with that attitude! Jesus wept! Appalling. Didnโ€™t like him much before, but now canโ€™t bear him! Arrogant frigger! Adored Rafas reaction ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃstraight after match point, really rubbing the Aussies ๐Ÿ‘ƒright in it! Sooooo not like Rafa to do that, but spot on ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’•

Jamie Murray been knocked out in round two of mens doubles, so no chance of him meeting Andy now ๐Ÿ‘, so thatโ€™s one positive.

Cori Gauff is my favourite to win the women's singles. What a player!
last match she was 1 point away from getting knocked out....then she pulled it all back and went on to win! Unbelievable!
and how mature for a 15 year old. ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ๏ฟฝ

Agree Ange. Think my money this year, if I betted which I donโ€™t, is still on Ashleigh Barty, it would be soooooo lovely to see Coco lift the plate tho next Saturday!

Sadly Coco teamed up with Jay Clarke ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งfor mixed, and defeated in first round today ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ‘Ž

I heard they were going onto Wales, Dai, OMG bet such an awesome display, sooooo glad you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. Jealous ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

What a brilliant day of tennis, Dai ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘, Murray Serena just a superb partnership! Was soooooo gripped! Fantastic to watch, loved me!

โ€‹Poor Dan Evans tho. Sooooo sad, he fought so so soooooo hard for every single point. It was soooooo close, he was gutted. He should be proud tho ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Hi Bev, Red Arrows back here to open Day 2 of the Wales Air Show at 11.30am - itโ€™s a fantastic event held on Swansea beach, the Bay Area is a perfect venue for air displays as all the activity takes place over the sea.
The Dan Evans match โ€œdrainedโ€ me last night - I was on the edge of my seat and playing every shot for him - heโ€™ll be a stronger player as a result of the loss, but a hard lesson to deal with.
Great tennis weather ๐ŸŒž

Oh Dai, love hearing your excitement re the Reds ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘, so proud you support them, bet fantastic two day event. Nice early show from the Reds then if 1130 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. I adore them. Know their display season a lot shorter this year as focussing on North America.

Oh absolutely Dai re the Evans match. I was on edge of my seat throughout, routing for him. What a comeback after he went off the rails๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ’Š. He went right back to square one, having to play challenger matches in middle of nowhere, but he did it, and his ranking shot up, plus now coached by David Felgate, Tim Henmans ex coach. Think Evans will need continuing work on his mental side, tended to lose focus at times during that match, and didnโ€™t care for his language too much ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌbut ya soooooo feel for him, and want him to achieve big things ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

Feels odd not having any ๐ŸŽพtoday, the only slam not to play the middle Sunday, but had chance to do full long overdue housywork ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
