Discussion on Wimbledon

idontknow!!! :

On the official wimbledon website (www.wimbledon.com) the results are shown as e.g. A.Mauresmo d. A.Myskina. What does the 'd.' mean??!! THANX!1

Dutch58 :
"Defeated"
Not_Here :
"defeated, disassembled, distroyed, decomposed............all of those works"
Rob T :
"It means "defeated""
cajun7_girl :
"Mauresmo "defeated" Myskina Hopefully Mauresmo will keep her head about her this year and make it to and win Wimbledon."
blah blah blah :
"idontknow!!!a 'd' with a fullstop??? its mean A.Mauresmo DEFEATED A.Myskina."
teddybear :
"defeated"
B-Money :
"defeated"
icewitch54 :
"That would meand that Mauresmo deafeated Myshina which means Mauresmo won the match. Should add that : is the OFFICAL championship site."
ricardobeige :
"i dunno, i'm just on a roll for answering questions apparently, so i'm gonna guess like the rest. DEFEATED has anyone seen that question posed by that tennis player??? It's still open, so get down there quick!"
im radtastic :
"defeated."
benjamin b :

should wimbledon have seeded serena and venus higher because of past performance. Serena shouldn't have had to play justine henin twice in a row in a grand slam final. Venus should have never had to play sharapova in the forth round.

tadeeb :
"Rankings by WTA is just where each player has collected based on the points per event.....Even the seeds are meaningless to an extent, other than meeting them may be earlier than the finals.... Given that William sisters play very few tournaments, their total points will be a few compared to others.....based on their previous performance, Wimbledon seeds them accordingly. Even if they were seeded higher, the outcome would be the same....hence seedings do not matter a lot for players like William sisters"
OneBigTennisFan :
"As tadeeb mentioned, the rankings are based on points accumulated throughout the year based on performance at tournaments. That the Williams' have had to play top tier players often is the result of the Williams' actions (or inactions to play more frequently for whatever the reason) not the WTA. It's perfectly fair for the Williams to play Henin and Sharapova in any round in any tournament any number of times in a row based on the system that's in place. If they want to change how that happens, their only recourse is to perform better and play more frequently. That goes for any player, not just Venus and Serena. Past performance ranking is sometimes held for a short time for special reasons. But the Williams, while formitable no matter how long they've been away fromt he game, have for a multitude of reasons accumulate a certain number of points and that decides their ranking, not the WTA. Hope that helps."
NPI :
"i think its all very calculative process--every player's RACE and RANING .....her performance at the event is considered..her record on the surface is considered..so you probably cannot fight on what's good and how it is bad....Serena lost not coz she was facing justine..coz she had two dreadful injuries...left thight and left wrist.... If Venus was seeded higher she wud have still won the wimbledon..coz she is just too experienced of the two sisters"
captain_bryce :
"The short answer is yes, they both should have been seeded higher! Serena should have been seeded somewhere around 4th and venus should have been seeded in the top 10. The reason I say this is because Wimbledon is one of the few tournaments that seeds players based on a combination of ranking points, past performance and grasscourt expertise. By their own rules, Venus (now a 6 time Wimbledon finalist) was seeded way too low. She has the best grasscourt record of anyone competing now and this was mentioned by commentators (MacEnroe brothers and Mary Carillo). The French Open should also follow a similar seeding arraingement procedure that Wimbledon uses since the claycourt benefits certain playing styles more than others and some players have had better history on that surface. However, the Australian Open, the US Open and other hardcourt events should seed players strictly by rank order since those are the most neutral surfaces. Okay, so that wasn't really a short answer, but hey!"
Budda of VI Radio :
"There has been so much drama in the past about seedings that I find it fair to just use their current rankings. But some players did get a bump up this year just not where many of us felt they should have been. I will certainly be watching next year when Venus enters if she is seeded less than 5 I will boycott."

who took of there shirt and gave there tennis racket to the crowd at Wimbledon to day. And then had to a borrow a shirt? Could you give me a link ? It was someone !! it was on the news !!!

joe_canning123 :
"no one did from the men's final federer or nadal didnt"
Stephen M :
"was in mens doubles final. Either Michael llordra or Arnaud Clement"
margaret j :
"no idea didn't watch the games"
Amalgamus :
"Llodra and Clement were visibly delighted with their win, throwing their tennis racquets and shirts into the crowd and then, caught up in the excitement, giving away most of the contents of their tennis bags. Chuckles then rippled around Court One, as it became clear that Llodra had gone further than his partner and hadn't hung on to at least one spare shirt. Not wanting to collect his trophy shirtless, he dashed over to the players' box on No.1 Court and his modesty was saved by Arnaud's brother Bruno, who took off his own shirt and handed it over, allowing the player to collect the trophy with his dignity in tact."
miraob86 :
"Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra after their win in the doubles final. Llodra did that in another occasion too; On winning the men's doubles final at the Australian Open in 2004, Llodra and his tennis partner Fabrice Santoro made headlines by stripping off their shirts, shoes, socks and shorts.[1] Dressed in a pair of white briefs only, Llodra threw his clothes into the crowd, to the cheers of many onlookers.[2]"
chezliz :
"It was the two frenchmen who won the mens doubles.The French always get excited."
aikyoo :
"Michael Llodra :-) really funny!!!"

You all know Maria Sharapova is not my favorite tennis player. I freely admit, a lot of that is not her fault. Much of my dislike lies in the fact that she became the "Great Blonde Hope" after she won only one grand slam, Wimbledon in 2004.

Maria Sharapova's 7-5, 6-3 victory over Ana Ivanovic at the Australian Open earned her a third Grand Slam singles title to go with those she won at Wimbledon in 2004 and the U.S. Open in 2006.
