I can't quite believe it's Rafa v Roger and Serena v Venus. Feel very emotional!

Also feel like killing Sky over the reports that they are going to pull Eurosport.

Feels a bit like going back five years in time - which is tempting for so many other reasons right now...

I must say I'm not really bothered about who wins either the men's or women's singles finals; it's enough to know that all four, who are all (I think!) on the wrong side of 30 can still triumph through to this point. I agree with JS, though, that it's like putting the clock back - but well done to them all for doing so!

Very disappointed, but so proud of both of them. And of Venus. So many people wrote them all off.

Still upset, though ...

Amazing match, and I'm so pleased Federer won! I'm willing to let Nadal have the next one, though...

Regardless of whether you favoured Federer or Nadal, I thought people might like to see this Opinion piece from today's Telegraph:

Shame that this golden age of men's tennis has ever to end.
