Idk if it's Good Old Day syndrome, or me being a crabby old fart - but Wimbledon just doesn't hold the same juice it used to for me.

 

Back in the day I loved watching it, would even look forward to the early a.m. weekend Finals..... Granted we had Chrissy, Steffi and few others back then - but even the guys. We had McEnroe, Lendl, Becker, Wilander, Borg, Connors, Edberg, Cash, etc - names everybody knew....... Now, I know like Rog and Nadal. :dunno:

Either the top tier players are so much better today then the next groups...(Fed,Nadal,Serena)...or tennis is just not as deep at the top anymore.

 

Wonder how much new tech in rackets has changed the game. Are players games more alike now then previously...makes it possible for top players to dominate all year round....

Just installed ESPN App to see Fed walk off. :doh:

 

He will be 37 for the US Open :o

 

Kevin Anderson, who beat him today is 32 and was in the final of the US open last year.

 

Not a young mans game anymore!

Advancement s in health and fitness certainly, great genes and determination for Fed, and has to be newer rackets....IMO.

Golf? Hockey? Soccer? Bowling? Cycling? NASCAR?

Ill watch golf, hockey, or soccer over tennis for sure.

 

Cycling maybe.

 

Ill give you bowling and neckcar. Those are below two dogs focking in terms of watchability.

Tennis is far and away the most boring sport to watch. Worse than baseball even.

 

 

 

a run of the mill, tennis match, yup. boring as hell, boring as a run of the mill baseball game.

 

Federer vs Anderson at Wimbledon yesterday, was must watch.

 

Same as Soccer. American soccer league. No thank you.

 

Would Cup knockout round. 100% yes.

 

you have to appreciate the moment and what you're watching.
