The Wimbledon Men’s Final and the World Cup Final are both set for Sunday. (England plays Croatia on Wednesday for a place in the World Cup Final against France). So far, Wimbledon’s management has refused to budge, and will not reschedule the traditional 2 pm (1300GMT) start time. The World Cup does start two hours later, at 4 pm (1500GMT), but there is no way the tennis final will have been completed by that time.
I guess I will have to toggle back and forth – but if Roger Federer plays on Sunday, I will have to miss some of the soccer.
It might be the last Wimbledon hurrah for Federer, one of the greatest tennis players of all time. He turns 37 in August. Are there any praises still left to sing? asks tennis.com.
Update Wed 7/11: South Africa’s Kevin Anderson beat Federer today in a tough 5-set match (13-11 in the final set). Yay! for Kevin. Aww .. Roger is out after all. And England fell to Croatia, 1-2. So it’s Croatia and France on Sunday.
