Wimbledon takes center stage

RSS

BETHESDA, Md. – The center of the universe on Sunday at Congressional was not that 2:20 p.m., two-ball featuring Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim – at least not yet.

Instead, players, caddies and officials were huddled around a small flat-screen TV in the locker room that was airing the Andy Roddick-Roger Federer marathon duel at Wimbledon.

“What a match and I’m playing golf,” said Chris DiMarco fresh from his closing 67.

Even Jim Furyk, on his way to a 2 p.m. tee time, paused on his way to the practice range to marvel at the match that was tied 11-11 in the fifth and final set. Interestingly, the only player who didn’t even glance at the TV was Woods. Some game faces are more bulletproof than others.
