    If it is not bad enough that all the talk at Wimbledon this year is about Serena closing in on the calendar year slam we now have Nadal on the verge of a 2nd round defeat to a black "German" called Dustin Brown.

    Dustin Brown defeats Nadal in four sets. A new black hero:

    I was watching ESPN's post match studio coverage and Chris Evert was ready have this guy's baby.

    I don't know anything about this "German", but I'm 100% certain he's the product of a black father and white German mother, the result of this curious German negro fascination, in which German men and women go out of their way to exclusively mix with dark meat.

    Anyway, I think this guy is a scrub and should be eliminated in the next round or so. He looks to be in his late 20s and I hadn't heard of him until today, so I don't believe he's the next great black hope we have to worry about.

    As far Nadal, injuries, his aggressive style of play, and Father Time have caught up to him. There's also no question now that Federer is G.O.A.T.

    It's probably a black US serviceman as well... this guy looks like he'd fit right in with the many Blermans that Klinsmann keeps on the USA soccer team.

    You are right. He will get despatched soon. He was horrible today, sadly Nadal was even worse.

    Murray will barely drop game against this ugly lanky unauthenticated and ungainly moron. He really is that bad.

    Well, I can't wait to see what the Spanish laughing guy has to say about this.

    Genie Bouchard was dispatched in the first round by an unknown unseeded player who was something like 108th in the rankings. Her career has been in a nosedive since getting squashed in the finals at Wimbledon last year by Kvitova. She's still very young and hopefully will get the ship righted. She seems like a hard worker, but remember Anna Kornikova, who was more concerned with cashing in on her looks than winning tournaments.

    I watched the match point highlight/ending. That was truly sickening to see that 98% White British crowd applaud worshipfully to this (now overhyped) guy long after it was over, and all the way to him going in the tunnel. It was much, much, much more than a slew tennis of fans applauding a perceived "great match" and well-deserved victory. Nadal apparently played awful and this guy wasn't much better. No, it was evidence of decades of Cultural Marxisims' success over a group of duped idiots; or as the Marxist/Communists themselves would have said, "useful idiots". The PC commentators on BBC were following suit as well. Gag.

    What a travesty to behold...

    More bad news from Wimbledon. Non-white Australian citizen Nick Krygios (Malaysian mother, Greek father) just beat Canada's Milos Raonic (Montenegrin parents). Kyrgios has been exciting commentators due to his vibrant personality.

    Close. His father is Jamaican, mother German. The media love his story about being homeless, living in a car, going to tournaments...or something like that. He went 'back' to Jamaica but then decided to return to Germany for tennis purposes. I'm guessing that was to take advantage of Germany's better tennis infrastructure. When he took off his shirt between games the commentators started talking about his tattoo. They thought it was of Bob Marley. They were later corrected - it was some other reggae singer, who, I guess, must've looked like Marley.:embarrassed:

    Turned on ESPN just now, which is televising John Isner's match. Then there was a mention of the longest match in tennis history -- one of the most epic and amazing sports events ever -- the 11 hour 5 minute match five years ago at Wimbledon between Isner and Nicolas Mahut which went to a mind-boggling 70-68 in games in the fifth set.

    So what did we get to see in this look back? Only the last shot of the final point and about five seconds of Isner celebrating, followed by several minutes of a dreadlocked black buffoon talking to a very "diverse" array of people in front of the plaque at Wimbledon marking the match, asking them such uninteresting questions as had they ever done anything for 11 hours straight. A complete waste of what should have been a look back at the actual event, but instead we were "treated" to an unfunny skit by an affirmative action hire blessed with "charisma" and a "room brightening smile." Ah, good old ESPN. . .

    I didn't see it but I think you're referring to the gay black guy they've brought to several other majors. I can't even remember his name but I know I've mentioned him on these boards before. He's not even an ex-athlete just some gay journo award winner who never says anything insightful.

    Disappointing to see Serena Williams let off the hook. Her opponent, British mulatto Heather Watson led the third set 3-0 and later served for the match but couldn't hold. Serena was clearly peeved off at the crowd, even more than usual.

    Meanwhile on court now John Isner (again!) in a marathon match against US Open winner Marin Cilic of Croatia. It is 8-8 in the fifth set.

    Dustin Brown, the black "German" who beat Nadal, was eliminated today by Victor Troicki of Serbia in four sets. I doubt we'll ever hear much more of him.

    I could be wrong but I don't think there is one ethnic left in the men's draw? Good wimbledon, hope Murray, fed,Stan and novak make the semis

    Sharapova gets soundly defeated again by the Linebacker in the semis. Maria's game is based on power but hers is inferior to Williams', especially when it comes to the serve. She should try going to the net more against Serena but never changes her game plan.

    Williams never gets off to her trademark slow starts against Sharapova. I would bet that she dislikes Maria more than any other opponent.

    Federer-Murray and Djokovic-Gasquet in the men's semis. Would love to see Roger win one last Wimbledon and he's looked really sharp so far.

    I had zero faith in Sharapova. I didn't even look it up online to see if there was an upset. Sharapova is defeated before she gets out on to the court against Serena. Garbine Muguruza is not likely to win but at least there is an outside chance because Muguruza, like Azarenka, but unlike Sharapova, isn't afraid of Serena. Last year at the French - Serena's worst major - Muguruza actually beat her 6-2 6-2. On grass it will be more difficult for the Venezuelan/Spaniard.

    The US Open will be unwatchable on US television if Serena is going for the calendar year grand slam.

    Federer against Murray coming up! If Fed doesn't win here or at the US Open I think we can finally close the book on his major-winning career.

    I've never seen fed play as well as that. Proves once again if you keep motivation and good life style you prime in your 30s even in tennis.

    IF IT'S a fed novak final I literally will be rooting for both?

    I agree. Federer was extraordinary. He was even able to rally as well as Murray. His once weak backhand looking strong and accurate. No forehand shanks either. I think part of it is that he knows he won't last five sets against most of these guys so he has decided - probably under coach Stefan Edberg's advice - to abandon caution and play extra aggressively in order to win or lose in three sets or four at most.

    I agree with you both. Federer looked so efficient, so free.

    When I first saw Garbine Muguruza play I said she'll be in the top 10 or better. For whatever reason it hasn't materialized, yet.

    The Linebacker won but her stats are NOT impressive, multiple times getting her serve broken, just standing at the baseline trying to hammer winners rather than run around, and 8 double faults(!). She could be ripe for a beating at the US Open in the next few weeks. Here's the stats that spell her demise, hopefully sooner than later:

    Martina Hingis just won the Women's doubles final at Wimbeldon for her first Grand Slam win since the 2002 Australian Open!

    Good to hear. Good accomplishment for anyone and hats off to her. Anything to deflect attention away from The Linebacker...
    On the Men's side tomorrow, I am pulling for Fed. I want him to accomplish the record of 8 Wimbledon titles! But the Joker is always very tough. It should be a great match.

    Serena is the worst of both worlds - lacking both the NATURAL power of the men's game (her power is unnatural and steroid-fueled) and the grace and elegance of the women's game.

    Djokovic wins. Close though.
