The Brits have been waiting 77 years for a hometown hero to win Wimbledon, and this year they have crowned Andy Murray as their savior. Andy defeated the number one seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets; 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. It wasn't even close! But give Novak some credit as everybody in the building except for his mom and dad were cheering for Andy.

Marion the Master

Marion Bartolli is the new champion of Ladies tennis. This french woman made it to the Wimbledon Finals 6 years ago but fell to the once-powerful Venus Williams. Well Marion is back and this little 5 '7' bundle of jolt destroyed her tall, muscular opponent Sabine Lisicki in 2 straight sets 6-1, 6-4. Most people have never even heard of these two finalists so you could say women's tennis is changing with lots of potential champions.

Nobody really cares that much about Doubles' Tennis but that might soon change as two brothers are stirring the gossip pot with unbelievable results. Their names are Bob and Mike Bryan from the USA, and after their Wimbledon championship, they now hold all 4 Grand Slam Championship trophies. They are the first Doubles team to accomplish this since 1952.

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
