To vent out what the tennis players feel, they usually scream. It's psychological. It is even applied in the real world. But sometimes, when they are so enveloped with their own emotional distress and could not tolerate anymore the distraught, what they do is they usually impinge their racquets on the court, in this case the mowed grass. However, they will not be spared from a violation of racquet breaking. To tennis nuts, racquets are sacred.
When we speak of all these things, racquets, tennis, strokes, lawn court, what usually comes up in our minds is Wimbledon. Wimbledon is the longest running major championship in tennis and is ubiquitously considered to be the most prestigious. It is held annually between late June and the beginning of July for two weeks. Tournament duration, though, is subject to extensions due to intervention of nature.
Top seeded players this year are Roger Federer for the guys and Justine Henin for ladies. If Roger Federer wins this year's bacon, it will be his fifth title in Wimbledon. Almost near to achieving Pete Sampras' record of seven titles. He will be facing the twelfth seed player, Richard Gasquet in the semi-finals. Richard Gasquet has been playing pretty good in his past matches, beating the third seed Andy Roddick in a tight five-set quarter-final match. He has his ups and downs as a tennis player, but this year's Wimbledon, he is showing that he is up for any matches. Equipped with a fantastic backhand, I think Federer will be having a difficult match with him.
On the other hand, the Belgian no. 1 was robbed with this year's title by the eighteenth seed Marion Bartoli. Bartoli humiliated Henin in their semi-final match. On their first set of the match, Henin looked very composed and determined, ending the set with 6-1 in her favor. But everything jumbled. When Bartoli accidentally directed her eyes on the royal box, she saw Pierce Brosnan. Then Bartoli, who is a big fan of 007, suddenly was inspired in her match, grabbing the last two sets, which makes her the winner of the match. She will be facing the no. 23 Venus Williams in the finals.
