As you almost certainly know by now, Roger Federer won Wimbledon yesterday, his record-tying seventh championship at The Championships and record-extending 17th major overall. As fun as it is to see an all-time great continue to play at such a high level, though, there’s another reason to be happy about his triumph: Federer victory photos.
Andy Murray lost Wimbledon to Roger Federer, as we told youa few moments ago. It was a gut-wrenching loss, with Murray taking the first set, but eventually succumbing to Federer’s on-court genius. There’s been a lot of pressure on Murray to bring home Wimbledon for the English, but he took this loss with the utmost grace. So much so that we won’t even make fun of him for choking up while describing his emotions and the support he had received from family and fans alike. Check it out, after the jump.
Roger Federer won his seventh Wimbledon title a few moments ago (4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4), thwarting Andy Murray’s plans to revitalize British tennis and become the first British man to win at the All-England club in 10 billion years (or something). Federer will now recapture the No. 1 seed, which is particularly remarkable considering he’s on the tail end (if we can even call it that) of his career, while having to battle Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal at every Grand Slam. It was his 17th Grand Slam title overall. Video of match point, after the jump.
Serena Williams won Wimbledon earlier today, and she dropped to the ground in celebration. The ESPN camera crew members, being the voyeuristic peeping toms that they are, decided to go for the extended video crotch shot. Granted you can’t actually see much, but the choice of camera angle is, well, odd. Video, after the jump.
Being a line judge at a major tennis event ranks right up there with worlds most dangerous jobs. It’s somewhere jumbled in between lightning-hugger, bear translator, and Detroit police officer. Just putting your nose on the line every day for the betterment of the sport.
Wimbledon + elder Scottish woman who might have had a few too many + sprightly Pam Shriver = incredibly awkward interview. Whether or not the interviewee is drunk, that’s for you to decide. Shriver, sensing it was time to get out after a minute of incoherence, insisted “quickly, Helen” as she delved into some tangent about how she got to Wimbledon.
Rufus the anti-pigeon hawks deters pigeons and other small birds from bothering players and spectators during matches at Wimbledon. It’s an important job at the All England Club because PIGEONS ARE GROSS. This has been a tradition for the past 12 years, and, for the most part, has worked pretty well. But now, thanks to some criminal activity, PIGEONS WILL RUN WILD.
