And this is what will happen if two Mid-Majors play for the NCAA Championship in basketball or football.

...then demote them to the FCS, if you don't want them cluttering up your pristine "big school" championships.

I'm hoping Murray beats Djoker tomorrow

I don't get the headline...

Yeah, I don't know what was going on. Bad Lisicki, the one that showed up briefly against Radwanska, was all over this match. I'm just hoping Djokovic will wipe the floor with that morose Scot to get the bad taste out of my mouth, but that brutal five-setter against del Potro is making me nervous for his freshness going into this final...

Satanic panic in the attic: Wasn't a Russian hottie.

After the French Open: "Wah, Serena and the Russians are dominating! We want someone new!"

After Wimbledon: "Wah, Serena and the Russians lost early! New is boring!"

My best guess is, for lack of putting it a better way, "Lisicki Boom-Boom-Down".

Should probably link the reference, in any case.

The 23rd seed, playing in her first Wimbledon final, loses to the 15th seed, who was playing in her second final.

Choke?

Yeah.. Nerves? Absolutely, but I don't see how you can say a first-timer choked.

She lost to a fattie (a relative fattie, this is professional sports we're talking about) in a fitness competition.

More Lisicki please.

Most undeserved grand slam title ever as she got a crazy easy draw.  Biggest name she beat was Sloane Stephens, who only has her rank due to her own ridiculously easy draws and beating an injured Serena Williams.

By comparison, Lisicki beat 3 grand slam champs, including the number one player in the world, and also one of the winners of the grass court tuneups.  Her biggest challenge was her own nerves and not being used to being the favorite.

Just compare their paths:
Bartoli: Svitolina (ranked 82), McHale (ranked 70), Giorgi (ranked 93), Knapp (ranked 104), Stephens (ranked an underserved 17), Flipkens (ranked 20, but over 200 a year ago), and Lisicki (ranked 24).  She should have been embarrassed if she did drop a set.

Lisicki: Schiavone (ranked 45,but 2010 French Open Champ), Vesnina (winner of a tournament that pushed her to 22 after seedings were set), Stosur (Ranked 13, 2011 US Open winner), Williams (number 1 on a 34 match winning streak), Kanepi (ranked 46), and Radwanska (ranked 4, and last year's finalist).

Had Lisicki not been there, and Radwanska or Williams been there, Bartoli would have gotten spanked.

She had Sharapova, Azarenka, Errani, Kvitova, Ivanovic, and Wozniacki in her draw.  It's not her fault they lost.  If you mean she had a crazy-easy path, maybe, yeah.

Didn't drop a set, though.  That doesn't happen often.  And honestly she was playing some awesome tennis.  (Other than the bit where she forgot how to serve mid-second...don't know wtf that was.)

Sorry for Lisicki, but (foiled) hat's off to Bartoli, for me anyway.

Go Andy...but I doubt it.

Seeing Sabine Lisicki break down like that made me want to hug her and tell her it'll be OK. And maybe smell her hair.
