  2. The Rafa – Verdasco Semi Final was absolutely awesome!! Definitely the best game I’ve seen since last year’s Wimbledon Final (pure tennis this match wins but the sheer fact it was a Wimbledon final put it over the line for me). 5 1/4 hours of insanely good tennis. I was glued to the TV and hardly even realised the time. Some of the shots that both players made were awe inspiring and simply remarkable. I am so, so looking forward to the Wimbledon Final rematch between Federer & Nadal. My money’s on Federer but I’m hoping and wishing for a close 5 setter like the Verdasco match, that would be the icing on the cake of a great tournament.
