There are people out there gnashing their teeth, and butting their heads over who will make the finals and who have made the finals of Wimbledon. And I am one of them. As I predicted there will be a Williams sisters final, and I am pleased about that but there seems to be no doubt that Federer and Nadal are going to be the finalists on the men's side.

If Federer wins all I can say now is God bless him, one should always admire excellence. I will now be rooting for Nadal though, as my boy Murray is out, having come up against a phenom that is Nadal.

Poor Dementieva, such an excellent player. I had always thought she looked like a beautiful house wife, not this year though, she has changed, still beautiful but now with new muscles in the arms and legs, she looks the part of a serious athlete and it shows in her game having reached the semifinals of a grand slam for the first time. But what did she mean by it being a "family decision" about who between the Williams sisters will in Wimbledon.

I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt that she was having a "communication" problem. She does not seem in any way to be a devious person. But Venus was quite right to make her path clear. As a black athlete one has to be even more vigilant to nip stories or non stories like these in the bud.

I am going to sit back and enjoy the womens finals tomorrow and as I type the mens semis has just started. It will all be over on Sunday and then there is the Olympics to look forward to yeaaaa.

Good post! I heard Williams reply to the sort of controversy, but i did not know what it was in response to. Glad you cleared it up for me.
