Damn Leon, I was hoping for his 21st slam - 20 is incredible, but to keep going, especially at his age, makes him so special.

Ironically I was just reading a technical treatise on why his forehand is so good, when I remembered I hadn't checked the Wimbledon scores

Watched the match today...all flipping however many hours of it. Feds breezed through the first two sets, but then seemed to lose his rythm in the third. I have to say though, that Kevin Anderson played some superb tennis in the last three sets. His physical and mental strength was amazing, he would just not give up and matched, then bettered Federer in the final set. But, as sometimes happens, that just might have been his 'final'....can he rise to play like that again? We will see.
