Wimbledon 2009: 15 Tweets

The new Wimbledon roof: If you don’t build it, it will rain. But if you build it, Murray will complain.

Andy Roddick seems to have matured. Is it the punani or the Stefanki? Discuss.

Flattest match of the tournament: Andy vs. Andy. Where was the crowd? Murray practically had to beg them to support him during a tiebreak.

Was Djokovic at Wimbledon? I didn’t see him. I think I saw his shadow playing on a nether court but that can’t be true cuz he’s not ugly.

Murray kept waiting for the old Roddick to show up. He never did. Murray had no game plan for the new and clearly improved Andy.

Sabine Lisicki is one to watch. There’s life in Dementieva yet. Safina will fix her head. The women’s tour is not dependent on the sisters.

It took more out of Venus to beat Dinara 6-0 6-1 than was immediately apparent. That would explain why she had nothing left against Serena.

There are fewer on-court arguments since the challenge system was introduced. I almost miss the good old days of “you CANNOT be serious”.

Nadal ruined his knees getting to # 1. Now he’s lost it. If I could meet him, I’d ask him one question: Was it worth it?

Sampras’ wife seemed uncomfortable throughout this match. I guess I wouldn’t be thrilled about my husband’s record being erased either.

Why did Roddick apologize to Sampras? Is it that important that the G.O.A.T. be American? Is this what really motivated Andy? I hope not.

Brooklyn Decker may be cuter, but she can’t hold a candle to Mirka when it comes to supporting her man. Mirka’s devotion seems absolute.

Federer had a jacket with the # 15 imprinted in gold on the back. What would he have done if he had lost? Was there a back-up clothing plan?

Federer put on his Rolex after winning the match. Next he donned clothing by Nike. No wonder he’s an advertiser’s dream.

Will Roger do a victory tour or stay home with his pregnant wife? I vote tour. Pregnancy is fine, but it’s not everyday you win 15 Slams.

I dont think a lot of people have realised that Nadal has basically ruined his career by trying to get to the No. 1 position. It takes a lot of hard work and it is physically gruelling not only to get to the top, but also to stay there. It is ironic that in order to get to No.1, Nadal had to beat Roger at his Roger's favourite tournament, and then when the time came he was dethroned at the place where he earned his greatest victory. Just bizarre sense of how things are going in tennis right now. Makes you think the position of No. 1 is jinxed

I don't think that Nadal has "ruined his career" by any stretch of the imagination. He is injured, yes. But he will recover from his injury just fine. Nadal is young and strong -- he has a lot of tennis left in him.
