Wimbledon Buzz

Normally the Men's side of Wimbledon gets the most buzz because of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, etc, but this year, it's the Women's side of the game that has caught most people eye.

It's been the Williams sisters, Serena and Venus. In my opinion this has been one of the greatest things for womens tennis in the past couple of years.

Even with the stars knocked out in the early stages, like Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic, they still have the sisters to fall back on and keep Wimbledon to a great excitement level for fans. We've all seen it before but not in some recent time, we know we want to see Venus and Serena play each other in the finals, and with both of them in the semifinal matches there is a very good chance we could see that again.

Not only is it good for tennis, it's good for the future of American tennis. We have no -kova's or -pova's or -vic's. The Williams sisters give us something to cheer about for American tennis. And with them being the only American's left on both sides, and with no men reaching the final 16, and United States women not up to standards, that's what tennis fans need.

I'll be going up north to the great place of Higgins Lake, Michigan (hold out your left hand; it's right below the bottom of your middle finger). So no posts from me today.

I agree with you Nick. The entire Wimbledon event has been great this year. Hopefully American tennis can get back to where it once was.
