So Roger Federer won his eighth Wimbledon title without ever dropping a set, matching Nadal's romp through the French last month. I guess he just had a point to make. It was certainly the easiest Wimbledon final he's played in a very long time. I love the attitude he's taking this year, though, saying screw the world rankings and all that crap, he's just going to play tennis when he wants to, and when he wants to, he wins. Why the hell not?

I did feel sorry for Venus yesterday, I wanted her to win. I remember watching when she first won Wimbledon, just turned twenty, and she bounced around with practically the world's biggest smile; she was adorable. It would have meant the world to her to win again after all the issues she's had with illness, but I guess it meant too much, because after she lost that tight first set, her game just collapsed. Sad to see, but she was so gracious in her interview afterwards, and big smiles again talking about her sister.

I know they'll both have to stop being major competitors some time in the next few years, but meanwhile they're amazing to watch.
