Is this as big a deal in Brit-land as they make it out to be on television coverage in the US? I haven't watched Wimbledon in awhile but when I have there is always this kind of media circus until "the last Brit loses", then they do a long media package about hopes being dashed once again, and so-on. I've always wondered if the British public was really sitting on pins and needles while it looked like a homeboy still had a chance.
Nothing is as big a deal as US media makes it out to be.
I watched the whole thing, first time I've ever really watched tennis. It was really entertaining.
