Oh man, what a Cricket World Cup final that was! It had to go to a super over and New Zealand needed only 2 runs on 1 ball and fell short by inches. Incredible

Between the cricket final and Wimbledon, must be something in the air in England today.

Had it not been for the new 5th set tiebreaker rule at Wimbledon, they might still be playing. Federer had a double match point on Djokovic, but he escaped. The new rule calls for a tiebreaker if the 5th set reaches 12 - 12. The "marathon" contests of the last few years have wreaked havoc with the schedule within the tournament as well as with players who will be playing in the next one.
