Wimbledon Wrap-Up


The final weekend was anticlimactic, I suppose, mostly because this year's Wimbledon Championships was an absolutely wild ride, with plenty of upsets, near upsets, and terrific showdowns. A few quick thoughts:

  • For all the millions of pounds the All-England Club spent on the retractable roof on Centre Court, the tournament did not experience one rain delay in 2010.

  • Who would have expected the Williams sisters and the Bryan brothers to lose the way they did in doubles?

  • We may have seen the last Wimbledon in which Roger Federer entered as a favorite.

  • And the Isner/Mahut marathon is surely one for the ages.

  • Ditto Venus Williams.

  • Though the men's final couldn't hold a candle to the five-set duals of the preceding three years, it was pretty cool seeing how Rafael Nadal dominated by improving his game.

  • Same with Serena Williams and her serving.

Time to decompress now.
