For better or worse, I've followed Ernests' progress over the last year or so. It's been a slow road back to form, but his attitude is very impressive actually. For all his flaws, he's knuckled down, worked hard and it's been paying off in the last 2/3 months. Whoever you are, if you put in the hard work, you deserve your success.
@32 Roger was im great form im 2014 and 2015 final, still not enough to beat Novak, so he needs to add something more to his game to win with Nole.
I only caught the last few minutes of the match, but what was Kyrgios doing? He has so much natural talent but just can't get his head together.
Or perhaps he knew that England were playing Sweden who are not exactly worldbeaters in the world of football. A bit like their current tennis players, I guess.
@5 "Hello??? Did you not know that the football is on today" Apparently Sir Bobby Charlton didn't know - or perhaps he just preferred to watch Nadal ...
Gulbis! What a fighter? 2 sets down with Alex, equalises and then relentless attacking tennis in the 5th set winning 6-0. What a contender irrespective of his manners!
@30 - People said "Dreddy beating Rafa? No way!", "Rosol beating Rafa, No way!", Muller beating Rafa "No way!"!. Rafa, if he reaches Novak, will be beaten by Novak. Novak has a great chance of winning this year's Wimbledon, but I think Roger has the form. I predicted and hope for a Roger vs Novak final.
27 & you are probably the meanest on this HYS, very snide very much so
@29 - enjoy your comments and appreciate your stats but disagree this time. Vesely beating Nadal in R4? Really? Delpo/Simon winning QF? No way. Rafa v Nole SF. Rafa will win and win W '18. Nole good shout for USO if he can sort out his mental game. Nextgen still 5 years from winning GS regularly. Meantime RN and support cast of ND/MC/JMdP keep GS show on road. Rafa to overtake Fed GS by FO20.
@28 - Djokovicv will beat Nadal if Nadal miraculously gets past the 4th round for the first time in 7 years. Nick is gone, Monfils is unfit and Delpo is rubbish on grass. Be sensible.
Come on Rafa win Wimbledon for the third time.If Rafa doesn't win,I want Nick Kyrgios or Gael Monfils or Del Potro to win Wimbledon this time around.
@26 - No surprise that the worst tennis 'fan' on BBC HYS would support tanking. You are the biggest tanker that comments here.
Gulbis played his final, should have let the guy who is more likely to go on to win through
Pity - Gulbis won't win the next opponent.

Strange about Sasha Zverev. He doesn't seem to be able to maintain his concentration over long five-set matches.A shame, since I think he has the talent to win a Slam. Benoit Paire's conduct was a disgrace, and I'm glad he was beaten., although I think he should have been disqualified.I hope Kei Nishikori can send Nick Kyrgios home with him. Karen Khachanov definitely looks like one to watch.
A 5 set match too far even for Zverev..Gublis is one of those players who has not lived up to his potential.
Sasha again showing his frailty in best of 5 matches. I don't believe this is a physical issue anymore as he has bulked up a bit and his gym work has been quite impressive. I'm sure he'll work it out sooner or later, but until he does, he can hardly be called the future of men's tennis.
