Wimbledon: Emma Watson, Piers Morgan watch; Kate and Pippa steal show


Twitter makes everything better. Users have been watching Wimbledon and the camaraderie of tweeting the event is making it more exciting. And snarky, of course.

Rooting for Federer over Murray. Since no American involved, I root for the healthcare system I prefer. Go Switzerland!

Piers Morgan and Perez Hilton (in London for the Wireless Festival) get in on the action.


Can Federer fans please stop 'BOOM!'-ing me – very childish. #Wimbledon

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 8, 2012

Federer has already taken the title so many times. Murray for the win!!! Bring it home, Andy! #Wimbledon

— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 8, 2012

Actress Emma Watson tweets breathlessly.

Deuce 10?!!!!!!! O my god #Wimbledongivingmeanxiety

— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) July 8, 2012

Is he going to be able to break Federer's serve … That is the question. #Wimbledon

— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) July 8, 2012

Bravo stars also watch via Twitter.

Omg!!!! Best Wimbledon !! 1 set each. #goandyyyy (cohen)

— Hoda Kotb (@hodakotb) July 8, 2012

Wow Federer just won the 2nd set!!!

— Ramona Singer (@ramonasinger) July 8, 2012

More important than the match between Federer and Murray? Why, Kate Middleton and her sister Pippa, of course!

Pippa Middleton & Kate Middleton, David & Victoria Beckham, Marvin and Rochelle…. all at Wimbledon today 🙂 #firstclass

.@espn I'd like a box at the bottom of the screen that constantly shows Kate & Pippa. Thanks in advance. #wimbledon

— Todd Sheppard (@taawd) July 8, 2012



Is Kate Middleton at this match? Please say yes.

— Stefan Becket (@stefanjbecket) July 8, 2012

HALLELUJAH RT @JoannePistonFan: @stefanjbecket She IS at this match!

— Stefan Becket (@stefanjbecket) July 8, 2012

And, Twitter delivers!

Some, like Tiger Woods, are actually watching the match, however.

Now we've got ourselves a tennis match. #wimbledonfinal

— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) July 8, 2012

Federer's not been at his best. And he still looks like the greatest player of all time. As good a man as he is a sportsman. #Wimbledon

— Darren Jessop (@DarrenatSix) July 8, 2012

#Federer is too slick & classy today.. Total professional.. #Wimbledon

— Alka (@AlkaOfficial) July 8, 2012

This match stopped being competitive after the roof got closed. Federer ran away with it. #Wimbledon

— YoungGifted&Ratchet (@Anti_Intellect) July 8, 2012


Andy just isn't playing on Federer's level. Maybe it's the legs. #wimbledon

— IG: BonsuDreamz (@DreamzRreal) July 8, 2012

Or maybe it’s Kate and Pippa?

Close this out fed #teamfed #Wimbledon

— JP3 (@jplisa21) July 8, 2012

Just had a long hot bath, and was hoping it'd be all over by now. FFS. #Wimbledon

— Eris (@FlordeXeres) July 8, 2012

Oh, dear. Twitchy will bring you all the wrap-up action, if the match ever ends!

Update: Federer wins.

Hats off to Murray for a great fight. But we saw why Fed is the #GOAT.

— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) July 8, 2012


Aha! It’s sporty thing talk:

@snarkandboobs Loved the twitchy tennis recap. Thanks! (and GOAT = greatest of all time)

— David (@Seattle_D) July 8, 2012

Great effort by Murray! He won just by making it to the finals! Congrats Federer! I fekin lurve tennis! #Wimbledon

— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 8, 2012

Federer!!! What an awesome match! #Wimbledon

— Lee Davis (@leewdavis17) July 8, 2012

Crowd reaction was little and awkward. Because they've been cheering Murray on all day. #Wimbledon

— dagonetjnr (@dagonetjnr_) July 8, 2012

Federer fought hard, he deserved the win. I see Murray coming back even stronger next year #Wimbledon

— Andrew Poure (@apoure25) July 8, 2012

Obvious conclusion from this is countries with government-run health care don't produce champions.

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) July 8, 2012

I also blame Wimbledon crowd. Too polite, too nice to opponent. Take cue from Yankee Stadium bleachers if you want a champion.

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) July 8, 2012

Congrats to #Federer, 4 set victory over #Murray. Roger's 7th Wimbledon title. He's back to #1. Good effort by Andy. Exciting #Wimbledon.

— Robin Roberts (@RobinRoberts) July 8, 2012

Roger Federer played some insane tennis. And a classy winner. #wimbledon

— Rory Cooper (@rorycooper) July 8, 2012

Congratulations, Roger Federer!

And congratulations to Murray for a hard-fought and well-played match.

NEVER accuse Murray of being unemotional again. He gave it everything he's got. Proud of him.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 8, 2012

This Twitter user leaves us with the final word:

There is crying in tennis.
