Wimbledon 2007

Well its official Roger Federer has won his fifth Wimbledon in a row, Rafa Nadel really stretched Federer and in my opinion deserved to win. However the Swiss tennis genius kept his cool in the last set to stave off four break points and clinch the match

Federer now has 11 Grand Slams to his credit - which ties him with Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver. He is still three slams behind Pete Sampras in the All-Time race but by next year this time could conceivably hold the record.

One expects more from Nadal - who definitely has the goods to win at Wimbledon - although he needs to serve more aces to persevere in the tie breaks) - Maybe Next Year?

The Women's tournament was another snooze fest as Venus Williams defeated Marion Bartoli to clinch her fourth title. Yes I know Williams was only ranked 31st but as most know the Wimbledon rankings are somewhat of a joke.
