Historic. Unprecedented. Never seen before. Throw out the record books. John Isner and Nicholas Mahut will hopefully complete their match tomorrow afternoon London time. But the entire sports world sat up and took notice of tennis for once.
A Slap in the Face
I don't see any other way to describe the women's court assignments for tomorrow. It's my understanding that Caroline Wozniacki is a favorite of the top people in the WTA. Maybe that explains it.
It's been amusing reading the apologists for the assignment. Their argument is that Serena Williams was never officially assigned to Centre Court so the uproar is being caused by misinformation. She is the defending champion. She is ranked #1. She has won several Grand Slams. The WTA representative on Centre Court tomorrow has never made it past the quarters at Wimbledon where tradition means so much.
Nothing is going to change the assignments though and we all have to live with the situation. It's too bad that something this ugly has reared it's head, once again, at Wimbledon.
Smile of the Day
Andy Roddick. Two long time friends greeting each other is not newsworthy unless you're looking to point out that they are friends. I'm just sayin'.
