I must concur. These 32 bitches who think because their name has a number next to it, they are significant, have been told that it is just a number by those who have a Q or WC next to it, or nothing at all.
I don't think it's the players who've thought that way (with one or two exceptions perhaps). But the endless speculation and predictions and discussions about seeding that we had from the pundits did get pretty tiresome.
I agree with Fed (if that's allowed!) in his press conference yesterday. From Wimbledon live blog: Federer has a little dig at the media for hyping up the Federer-Nadal quarter-final, telling them "maybe this is a lesson for you guys as well." Says it was disrespectful to the other players in the draw.
I wonder whether that comment is reported in the papers!
Andy has also said some similar stuff about people obsessing over the draw. Also said somewhere that playing lower ranked opponents never seems easy when on court, although it might look like it on paper.
It's a shame about the injuries, but I wish reports would make it clear that many of the injuries are nothing to do with slippery grass. And good that Fed's defeat was nothing to do with injuries Also good to hear Andy and others talking about what adjustments need to be made when playing on grass.
It's about time though that some other players got a bit of attention.
