I like headlines. I came up with a few subject titles for this Wimbledon blog post:
Round Up the Usual Suspects - I meant to but didn't get around to predicting the top 4 mens seeds advancing to the semifinals (and probably predicting none of the top 4 women advancing) but then Roger lost so there went that predication and the headline.
The Fed Falls - but I didn't want Ron Paul enthusiasts to hijack my post in the comments section.
Transition - close but that implies a knowledge of the future
The Beginning of the End? - the winner and here is why...
Julie and I have a movie line that is often quoted between us that goes like this - "Confidence is key." That statement is contradicted in this article but that is beside the point of this post.
Is Roger losing his grip on one of his most important qualities? I haven't had a chance yet to watch the match but I hope to watch some of it, if not just the highlights. What I have seen out of Fed so far on the grass courts (edit to the bucket list post is I'd love to play on grass courts before I die), Federer has played remarkably.
He is still one of the best in the world along with two other guys but I don't know if he still expects to win and and it is a very opportunistic point in the careers of all three.
I'm excited to see how it plays out. Will three dominate the sport or will two dominate going forward or can one take home the majority of the hardware the next couple of years and which one will it be? I've read and heard plenty of arguments for all three but I'm excited to savor the pudding and find the proof in the months and years ahead.
There is certainly some legacy to create, improve, and elevate for all three.
