Wimbledon 2010: Day 13

Welcome to the final day of Wimbledon 2010 - it is men's final day, and there's a reason they leave this one till last. We were all (except Amy) kinda hoping that Andy Murray would make it through to the final, but the power of Nadal was just too much and it's only right that the 2008 championship comes back to have another chance for the title.

Rafael Nadal warming up during the second week of Wimbledon

Facing him on the other side of net is one Tomas Berdych. I've just realised I've been spelling his name with an extra 'h' all week long, so apologies to Tomas for that. I don't know much about Berdych but he has done really well so far this year. The BBC live text has a quote from a five-times Wimbledon champion.

Berdych has impressed everybody since he started to play well at the French Open. If Nadal doesn't play well he's going to lose, he needs to play his best. Nadal is the favourite but it's going to be interesting.

The 2008 final was one of the best tennis matches ever, involving Nadal and Federer. If this match is only half as good, it will be a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The tennis gets underway at 2pm, and I'll be watching the whole thing with a punnet of strawberries and a little bit of cream. Won't you join me?
