It's probably a coincidence that you posted this now, but there were some really good games at Wimbledon today.

Why do you think it's just coincidence, I totally caught the games at the Wiffledome.

I don't follow women's tennis, but the media is going pretty crazy about a Canadian girl who's beginning to make quite a name for herself. It's a rare opportunity for your country to be well-represented on the global sporting stage. She is from Quebec, though, and has a French surname, so I don't know if she counts.

Normally, we leave out the French Canadians, I'm not sure if we still claim the successful ones or not, though. That's a question better suited for Greg.

Well, she's pretty hot. That's the only criterion that I use when evaluating female athletes, so she definitely has my approval.

I love Federer, but he benefitted hugely from Wawrinka's injury today. Fed had a pretty poor game by his standards, despite winning comfortably. I've become a massive fan of Dimitrov. Anybody who blows Murray off the court that easily wins me over very quickly.

Yeah I know Federers best days are far behind him but every tournament I still hold out hope he can get one more Grand Slam (and make it harder for Nadal to catch him). If it is any tournament he can still win it is Wimbledon but yeah, it is a long shot with basically players from the next two generations behind him still to play.

I think we can claim her, we claim Hockey players all the time.

It's the first time in history that Canadians have made the semi-finals of a Grand Slam in both men's and women's play. Milos Raonic is the first Canadian man to reach the semis of a Grand Slam since 1926, and the first to do it at Wimbledon since 1908. So, that's kind of a big deal, along with our little Genie.

Certainly not. My comment is directed at the creator, not the creation.
