    It's been an interesting one so far. Both Federer and Nadal have been living dangerously, and the Isner-Mahut match was unbelievable. Anyone else watching?

    Having watched a typical English performance I think I need to find a different country to support. Dreadful 4-1, so far. Just how bad can it get?

    Unfortunately, I have missed a great deal though my husband has managed to see quite a bit.

    With typical Britsh sang-froid I'm just waiting for Andy Murray to crash out after building up our hopes and getting the whole British media to fever pitch

    Hi everyone, I don't watch Wimbledon. My wife is a football (soccer) fan therefore we are looking football (South Africa) , especially dutch and german team.
    I'm not a football fan.

    Far more interestingly from a photographers point of view, I'm looking forward to July 3rd & the start of le Tour De France!

    Colour, spectacle, great scenery, what more could you ask?

    Boo! I cant go this year!

    (and an Englishman has more hope of winning this year than the England footie team ever did! Go Bradley Wiggins!)

    Yeah, "Le tour" can also be a nice subject for photography, but I am not in the Nederlands during the start of this year...

    Andy Murray seems to be back on track. If he can beat Nadal in the semis, we'll have a new Wimbledon champ this year. The other semi is Berdych/Djokovic. Kudos to Berdych for playing a massive match against Federer today.

    With you on this. Murray really could do it this year,
