    And have three of there classic songs featured on the 3 top rated CBS programs... CSI, CSI: Miami and CSI: NY. CBS knew what they were doing when they got The Who involved in the half time show!

    In the Eighties there was already a Spitting Image spoof making fun of Pete Townsend who was then a spokesperson against youth drug abuse, using the My Generation song. Sadly of course his generation was a completely different one from his target audience, who kept on not having any inkling who that "old bloke" was!

    I thought Nadal but he seems plagued by injury.

    I'm actually glad that Federer won instead of Murray. For starters, Federer is the better player, but he's also more likable! (Murray isn't a "British" player anyway, he's definitely more Scottish. So I'm not really rooting for him.)

    Just because he's Scottish?

    Well, yeah, Murray has made various rather racist anti-English comments over the years. I still like him to do well (but there is a huge gulf in class between Federer and Nadal and then the rest).

    But he's Scottish, so he was probably on the defensive.

    I really wanted to like Murray, since of all the younger players with this same-ish counterhitting, boring baseline style (Djokovic, Del Potro, etc.), he was sort of showing the most variety, but I was soon let down by many of his interviews and comments; apparently he's really a spoilt brat.

    That, and he has a two-handed backhand. Bah!
    cool

    Concerning Nadal, it was only a matter of time before his ugly playing style led to injury. And apart from the 2008 season, where he was at his high, and Federer was still suffering from mono, he has never really 'surpassed' Federer except on clay, where Rafa's the master, of course. Looking forward to an exciting Roland Garros - hopefully with Fed vs Nadal in the final once more.

    I don't know, perhaps it's angst Wimbledon can be won by a Scotsman.

    I prefer a blancmange personally.

    I have to admit, I'm a bit of a Federer fan. The man is a tennis genius. Although the match between him and Roddick at last year's Wimbledon was a VERY close match, and to be honest I think they both deserved to win.

    I always thought Federer was a singer.

    Likewise. He's a tennis artist in a virtually unprecedented way. The variety of his shots is incredible. And I know it's a cliché, but there's something (weirdly) aesthetically pleasing and fulfilling inherent in them in a way I've never seen before. There was an interesting read on this aspect of his game a while back, "Federer as Religious Experience" or something like that.

    Federer's got a really amazing amount of reach for the ball and speed across the court, his shots are beautifully executed and a pleasure to watch. He actually has a lot of control over the game because he knows where to place the shot and with what speed. I think a major factor of him winning against Roddick last year at Wimbledon was his very powerful serve which Roddick was ultimately unable to break despite close calls. Though like Steven said, I thought they both played exceptionally well (and with an exceptional stamina!) and deserved to win.
