Another Wimbledon, and more correct champion predictions from yours truly! Though anyone betting against either Serena Williams or Rafael Nadal would be foolish, both men’s and women’s tennis is pretty much wide open at the moment. Both finalists that the champions beat were first-time Slam finalists.
On Saturday, Serena won her 13th grand slam title, and 4th Wimbledon title beating 21 seed Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 6-2.
On Sunday Rafael Nadal won his 8th grand slam title, and 2nd Wimbledon beating 12th seeded Tomas Berdych 6-3, 7-5, 6-4.
As mentioned above, I correctly predicted both champions before the tournament even began. So, if you are a betting man and need any advice for future tournaments, let me know!
Speaking of future tournaments, the 2010 U.S. Open is just about a month and a half away, and now that I’ve had my taste of being a part of a grand slam myself (2009 U.S. Open) you can bet that I will DEFINITELY be there, reporting about everything I experienced, including last year when Serena Williams threw up in a bush 5 feet away from me after one of her doubles matches!
See you in Queens!
