How many more can Roger Federer win? Also, would Roger have won if he had to beat his arch-nemesis Nadal? Regardless of all these questions, Federer has once again impressed the tennis world by regaining his #1 ranking after losing it after the week of June 6, 2010.
Murray played extremely well, starting off by winning the first set but after there was a rain delay and the Centre Court roof was closed, Federer's level increased tremendously. Roger started to take advantage of Murray's predictable second serve (to Roger's backhand) and went on to win a 19-minute game on Murray's serve.

Serena cruised through the first set 6-1 and then lost an error-filled second set, 5-7 and rebounded to win the third 6-2 to win the 2012 Wimbledon final. It was no surprise given Serena's dominance in the game when she isn't out due to some weird injury (stepping on broken glass?!?). Radwanska apparently had an "upper respiratory illness" which is really bad luck given her fierce opponent and career-making opportunity.

The new Amazing Spider-Man movie opens this week and it's the second Marvel blockbuster hit after The Avengers. The series reboot, which starts off the with origin story again, looks to be darker than the first trilogy which is probably a good thing. Will Spider-Man be able to top The Avengers or the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises this summer?

After Italy powered their way in great form to the EuroCup finals, they seemed flat footed in the final. Italy made England and Germany look like bad teams which isn't easy to do. The first half was not bad, Spain knocked in two goals but it was far from over. Then, Italy tried to change it up and used up all their subs. Unfortunately for them, one of the subs got hurt, leaving them a man down for most of the second half.
