Yeah it's an unreal shot, so cocky to try that against Nadal (who has been pretty weak this wimbledon in fairness).

He will have to beat Federer now in the next round, which Is a big ask as he hasn't dropped a service game so far and showing some of his best form imo.

Barca president speaking publicly about how "humble" Suarez is....after Zubizarreta the last day, and Luis Enrique before that, seems like their campaign's begun in earnest.

Looks like the sly cunts don't want to match his buyout too.

What they should do is offer a pound more than what it is

£40m-£50m plus Sanchez would be grand at this stage, but I'd be worried it'll be far less than that if it drags on all summer, which it very well could do, if Barca aren't prepared to pay up or Sanchez doesn't wanna come.

If you look at the score in that game, he was 40-0 down and probably wrote off that game when he tried that

Yeah, i wouldn't expect him to do it at match point like, but its still pretty cocky to try it and his reaction shows he doesn't lack the confidence.

Murray looks like he's out, getting battered by Dimitrov 2 sets to 0 and looking pretty dejected. Would take a huge comeback to win this.

Have an E/W bet on Federer to win it, so will be interesting to see how he gets on against the young Aussie.
