And Another Thing


Wimbledon: Only one challenge left

I suppose it was inevitable, given the unrtestrained carnage at Wimbledon this week. Someone -- and it turned out to be a lot of someones, all Twittering the same thing -- was going to suggest the only intriguing match left in the fortnight, now that the women's field is down to Serena and Them Others, and the men's field is down to Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and the odd Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

And so ... hey, how about Andy vs. Serena, everyone?

"I've never hit with her, but she's obviously an incredible player, and I think people would be interested to see the men play against the women to see how the styles match up," said the ever-accommodating Murray, who'd love to do it.

And why not? With Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka gone on the women's side and Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer already out on the men's side, the only drama left is whether or not Murray can send England into a spasm of car-overturning and fire-setting by becoming the first Englishman to win Wimby since Sir Percival of Forehand.

As to who would win ... well, it would be Murray, frankly. And probably easier than you might think, despite Serena's utter dominance of the women's game.
