A Dream Deferred - Wimbledon 2010 Day 11

by Savannah


During his quarter final match Novak Djokovic didn't give Lu Yen-Hsun a chance to breathe. Today it was his turn not to be able to catch his breath as Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic stormed past him into the men's final that will be played on Sunday.
Berdych will face Rafael Nadal.
How heavily do the hopes and dreams of a nation rest on a players shoulders? A picture is worth a thousand words.

The funny thing is I don't believe it was a nations hopes this time round - or at least if it was, that it weighed somewhat less heavily than other factors.

Murray seemed to bring his best, or thereabouts, and yet had the best seat in the house to witness his best being dimantled, piece by piece - often by the slimmest of margins.

A 90% Nadal trumps a 90% Muzz and perhaps even a 95% Muzz - not easy to swallow :)

No words for Rafa's performance? I thought he played brilliantly.

Rafa played wonderfully. Not a Murray fan.
