I too wanted Federer to win and was sure that he would in the end but not to be.

The cricket result to me doesn't seem right either maybe they should have played more extra time to get a proper result.

I'm actually glad the tennis is over, it was beginning to get to me!

Absolutely overjoyed at the cricket - have still got a smile on my face. Very Happy Cool

The tennis - fabulous match - and as I didn't have an overwhelming favourite, I was just happy to see tennis win the day.

I would love Federer to have won. Those two missed championship points will be hard for him to forget but I expect he will put them out of his mind eventually.

I wanted Federer to win, it was certainly nail biting stuff. Ending the match with a tie break felt as bad to me as a football match finishing with penalties.
Wimbledon was superb this year though.

Got to echo everyone's feeling re Federer and Djokovic, I really felt that Roger deserved to win.

As for the cricket, call me old fashioned but I remember when if a match was tied then the side who had lost fewest wickets won. Surely cricket is about how many runs are scored and how many wickets are taken, its irrelevant how the runs are scored, if one side scores more in boundaries then surely then they've also played more dot balls which is indicative of good bowling.

Good points, Foggy. I wasn't even aware they'd changed the fewest wickets rule, until Sunday. As for your other one, I hadn't even thought about that. You're dead right.
