It was a strong tournament for Beck. He went through qualifying, took out a seed and matched his career-best Wimbledon finish. Hopefully, this will be a good springboard into the hard court season.

My Tennis Fantasy

Soderling goes down so my chances at maximum points for Wimbledon are squelched. Does anyone else think his conqueror, Aussie qualifier Bernard Tomic, looks a bit like baseball legend Ted Williams?
