Wimbledon ...

Well, that was some tennis match - I'm not a huge tennis fan, but I watch from time to time, and that was quite amazing. So many opportunites for both players to take control of the match, but neither could overcome the other's resistance for so long. At one point in the last set (possibly the second rain delay, when they were at 2 sets each, 5 games each, 40-all, I think), one commentator said that Federer had won 174 points and Nadal 172, and it certainly seemed close all the way.

Now, I do have to wonder if Serena and Venus Williams could have produced a similarly exciting match, if they'd had 5 sets instead of 3 ? Why don't the women get 5 sets for the Grand Slam events too ?
