2. Delpo finally has got his feet underneath him well enough on the grass so that he can fully unleash his game. He definitely looks more like a future Wimbledon winner than ever...
I heard center court for Murray's match go for £10,000 a seat! http://t.co/7lqqicXtFt— Johan Kriek (@johankriek) July 5, 2013
3. Ubaldo, didn't anyone tell you that they don't keep stats on journos? Only the players, silly.

4. Not only was Djokovic tough--he was rough and tumble...
Bud collins covered 50 Wimbledon Clerici not sure about his 50 I am at 40! total of the neighborhood in pressbox 140 presences #wimbledon— Ubaldo Scanagatta (@Ubitennis) July 5, 2013
5. How good was Djokovic-Del Potro? Damn good. But don't believe me, I'll let the pros tell you...
Heh. Your racket, Mr. Djokovic (GTY) pic.twitter.com/1KokXcGvF2— Joe Fleming (@ByJoeFleming) July 5, 2013
6. Mighty Mel was digging it.
Tennis at its finest... Relentless offence from delpo and mind boggling defence from Nole...— Mahesh Bhupathi (@Maheshbhupathi) July 5, 2013
7. You could have said this a hundred times.
I really hope all tennis fans are watching this semifinal with djokovic and delpo cause it is some amazing tennis and true heart! #Wimbledon— Melanie Oudin (@melanie_oudin) July 5, 2013
8. It wasn't just long--but it sure was long!
That is great stuff from Delpo— Brad Gilbert (@bgtennisnation) July 5, 2013
9. Can't tell you how many times I have thought this during Wimbledon. Djokovic is treating the grass like it is a slippery hard court. It's Matrixesque.
BBC says Lendl-Becker SF in 1989 is longest ever at #Wimbledon, 4hrs 1min. This match? Now 4hrs, 4mins... and we've just started the 5th set— Nick McCarvel (@NickMcCarvel) July 5, 2013
10. Needless to say, with Andy Murray playing the second match, everybody saved some energy for the long haul.
How the heck is Djoko doing this freaking sliding thing on grass!!!— Andrea Petkovic (@andreapetkovic) July 5, 2013
11. And Jerzy Janowicz and his amped-up serving made sure the British faithful were kept on the edge of their seats.
In-office discussion: Are the fans on Henman Hill more intoxicated or sunburned at this point? A close race for sure... #Wimbledon— Nick McCarvel (@NickMcCarvel) July 5, 2013
12. Evidently the tape on Janowicz' arm doesn't keep him letting it fly.
That is the 3rd time this Touney Jerzy Boy has hit 140 mph serve and the 2nd in a row that he hit 140 in 1st game— Brad Gilbert (@bgtennisnation) July 5, 2013
13. The women appear to be intrigued by Janowicz "gentle touch."
Janowicz has more tape on his arm than a crime scene let's be honest.— John McEnroe (@McEnroeTweets) July 5, 2013
This guy loves to drop shot— Jennifer Capriati (@JenCapriati) July 5, 2013
14. Did some people get carried away when officials elected to close the roof due to darkness (or, rather, the rumor of darkness) after the third set? Do bears hibernate?
I'd like to know how many drop shots #Janowicz hit in this match!— Alina Jidkova (@AlinaJidkova) July 5, 2013
15. Anna Wintour, however, remained cool and calm.
I repeat. Time and again we are told this is an outdoor summer event. If this screws Murray, Wimbledon will deserve opprobrium of the nation— Neil Harman (@NeilHarmanTimes) July 5, 2013
16. In the end, it wasn't about the roof, it was about Murray being the better and more experienced player.
9:30 at night, the roof is closed and the sun is down. But yes, Anna Wintour has put her sunglasses back on. OK #Wimbledon— Nick McCarvel (@NickMcCarvel) July 5, 2013
17. And, even on the craziest fortnight in recent memory, the trend prevails. It will be Murray and Djokovic in the final. Who could ask for anything more?
You kidding me??? Murray with reflexes like a mongoose on amphetamines!!!— Rob Koenig (@RobKoenigTennis) July 5, 2013
