    Will you be watching Wimbledon?

    We're not massive tennis fans but have to watch the Wimbledon final. We live very close to the stadium and have had to close all our windows because of the helicopters flying overhead. We couldn't hear the tv at all, but we love the atmosphere.

    Who do you think will win?

    I have to say I'm not a big tennis fan, but I have watched more this year than I usually do.

    I've liked that the matches haven't seemed so one sided as they often are. I never feel comfortable watching the underdogs come on only to be slaughtered by the top players, but that doesn't seem to have happened in the games I've watched. It makes it more exciting to watch when it could be anyone's game. Even if the higher seeded player does go on to win, it's nicer to watch if the other player has at least stood some sort of chance!

    I won't watch this afternoon as I'll be out but I'm sure I'll see plenty of highlights later.

    Love Wimbledon but we do tend to watch the grand slams and Davis cups.

    I most admit as in other years we will be supporting Roger Federer.

    I have enjoyed watching the wheelchair tennis too.

    Tour de France takes presidence here.
    I tend to follow tennis on the iPad as DH not a great fan.
    Noticed four young lads playing a form of tennis on our field on morning walk yesterday - good to see that all the coverage inspires youngsters to get out too.

    Not watched any of the tour de France this time but have been keeping up with the news.

    I'm glad Federer won his 8th title but a shame that clilic was injured.

    I enjoyed the mixed doubled final too.

    Hoping to catch some of the lionesses euro games but I don't think the coverage is great

    I didn't watch the mixed doubles but everyone said it was really exciting. It is a shame he was injured - he looked so down at the end. I was glad Federer won his 8th - he seems like a decent bloke, but normally I would back the underdog so I wouldn't have minded who won. It was funny seeing his boys totally underwhelmed by the occasion!
