    Wimbledon

    Looking awesome for Sunday. Federer vs. Murray. I haven't been this excited to watch a final since Sampras retired.

    Me too. Roger was just too good. Imagine playing with the weight of your entire country on your shoulders. The emotion Murray showed after was telling. I hope he can win a major.

    Also, do you feel old when you see Ivan Lendl as his coach? I do.

    Lendl was a little before my time. But seeing a bald Sampras from time to time definitely makes me feel old.

    I was rooting for Murray from the start, but even more so after the special about Dunblane. I did not remember that and certainly never would have put the two together.
