    Yay for Serena. Hopefully she and Venus will win the doubles later. I wonder why she doesn't try mixed doubles? She has a Wimbledon mixed doubles title.

    I just wasn't impressed at all with Radwanska. I'm glad Serena didn't give it away with her nerves.

    I imagine at Serena's age that playing all 3 draws is a little too much. She has to protect her body and fight off nagging injuries all the time.

    Serena is the oldest winner of a GS since Navratilova won Wimbledon in 1990, aged 33.

    She has the longest span between her first and most recent GS victories (13 years; 1999-2012)

    She has won a slam in three different decades.

    Impressive.

    The Ladies Doubles will be on ESPN (US) following the completion of the Men's Doubles.

    Everytime I switch over to the mens dubs final, someone is hitting a return of serve miles out

    That's assuming the mens doubles finishes within the next hour or so - as we have already had 2 tie-breaks and only 2 breaks of serve - this match could go on a while yet as there is no tie-break in the 5th set

    There's no final set tie break at Wimbledon so this could go on for a while. I wonder if the womens doubles final can even take place today.

    I'm surprised that's even possible, as she only won her first GS a few years ago. I mean, I know *I* have only aged a few years since then!!!


    (Sigh...turned 39 recently and I'm having some issues. But I do remember that US Open like it was yesterday!)

    This is utterly amazing - a wildcard pairing of a Brit and a Dane have just won the Wimbledon Men's Doubles title And rightly Marray serves it out - wow!!

    Apparently the last time we had a mens doubles winner was in .........1936, the same year that we last had a mens singles winner!! The commentators are looking for all the signs they can

    And Nielsen is the first Dane to win a GS title since his grandfather who won the US Open mixed doubles in 1957 - amazing story this mens doubles competition.
