Either way the weather played along very nicely what is our future hold as we get back to work. And still stay pretty low tomorrow another 20% great chance -- should be topping out on to say our nineties. And by Wednesday will say 92 with say 20% chance for an isolated afternoon storm. From the pinpoint forecast center and your -- to Starbucks itself. And it's not sounds about the same the differences it'll be a little more humid as we get that on shore flow right now -- still enjoying some really crazy lows for this time of the year at 72 with a year reporting -- 68 at the National Weather Service office in Slidell.

Djokovic broke Federer serve in the match his final game to win the fifth set six to four tickle his second crowned at the all crown at the all England club. After the match itself Djokovic says he's never played in a better contest. This has been the best quality tennis Grand Slam final that I haven't been part of I've had. The longest final against than a dollar in Australian Open 2012 but -- wise from the first the last point it's definitely the best match. With the wind Joker retains regain the status of number one player in the world -- for Federer who would only lost the Wimbledon final once before. He said he couldn't be too downtrodden -- his accomplishment. Disappointment of the match itself.

The Cleveland Cavaliers believe they can bring king James -- At the sources have told ESPN as the cast prepared to make their pitch to LeBron James. It's an intriguing prospect to be sure Cleveland is just locked down they're young star Harry Irving for five years at the number one overall draft pick and Andrew -- is joining the fold. Those two young stars entering new contracts will be pitching stability and used to there once and maybe future king when they meet with the next week.

For your Monday outlook just hot and more -- dry weather look for highs around 91 this afternoon.

David likes to you here on WWL 37 minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition of WWL first news it's July the seventh its 2014. Is sub. Big back to work Monday man. -- difficult for many people on the alarm clock goes -- order a few days off. You know helping -- -- -- the morning temperatures and lower the humidity is down. Well some long minutes you'll last just humans get this meteorologist Laura -- year. On the early edition of WWL -- have been asking people. It was Acosta live the American. And USA today announces that you have to make about a 130000 dollars per year. That needs to see your family income. For a family of war you lived the American century. And historically the American dream has been on your at least be buying your house. In a BA hall culinary the other bank currently owns your name Ford got more mature you've got to be going home got a car. I -- well and Hank SP live in a big city maybe not but. Around the area yet own a car. And camp they'll take some decent vacations. Matter that the American dreams never had a clear simple definition. Now and then as some of the people that we question when we asked about us you know it did give. Very things a little bit counted depending on what you think it is but I think the basics though of of a home -- car. Education for the kids. Paying your taxes and insurance. But let's goes. And I think the American dream has changed someone I think it what time it was to outright own your home to outright own your car and I think it was -- not have any debt. But now I think the American dream is just be able to enjoy your life and pay your bills every month. And -- -- by mistake by -- well. Some people a month the month paycheck pay eject and I think maybe you know their living the American dream but they're living it in deep debt and so does that still qualify. I don't know we've been talking about. Several things. As well here this morning I get a check on the box office of course on Monday morning weird year. After the Lone Ranger flopped at the box office last year which they thought it was going to be a massive hit. That's studios this year were afraid to launch any major blockbusters. Only game Will Smith hasn't been doing his fourth the delight thing while in all he has and so the box office season instead of like a firecracker went off like it died. There was really nothing to drop people to the theaters the only new movie it did anything with Tammy. But he couldn't even beat out transformers age of extinction that transformers on that one and the new comedy Tammy to -- but overall. 44%. Less. Traffic at the movie theaters this year. -- -- -- very young team it doesn't seem low it is well is lots of you want to theater that is about half as many people here -- remember Portland we -- you're right.

Then in motion and get the momentum and -- I think it is kind of hand over and puff up their cheeks and spit out. The. At -- -- -- got pictures of it were putting and -- W -- to -- and up -- me but that's impressive here full pressure. Yes that's update hurt somebody that. They met its -- if they can spit a cherry pit nearly 81 feet. The man or any spit at one -- 93 feet you -- haven't that they spent that you close range that would that would. Thank you. But now live and direct -- Eyewitness News forecast. Spitting at cherry pit. That -- not on my bucket list but we'll find out what's on your -- keep texting me at 87870. I'll share some of your responses and sports with you -- bucket list. Climbing shipments arch in western China says one taxes paid 77 me. Another says skydiving and a trip to Australia Elizabeth things on my list. Just one says another to activate them mutiny ride in the crew of and -- Another presence as meeting Dave -- is on my bucket list really it is saying that because the couple people that they won me orbit. That really is -- anyone do before you die we can make that happen that's an easy one nobody else's I wanna play it down for the New Orleans Saints that harder. It's much easier to come up with a radio station and they -- -- made that is -- go play. Tied down for the same. And Marc -- what tops your bucket list. You know. Not playing it down over the -- -- -- -- unless I catch a ball and not get hit I don't believe that that that is usually some kind of tackle or at least a block involved if you played down but the thing yeah I feel like I would just get crushed him if I try to play now with the things well doing sports on WW I'll probably was at one time and calculus so go ahead and do that now. It's still my bucket list and go go ahead and and accomplish how about that. Novak Djokovic almost washed it all slip away yesterday he was leading two sets to one and up 52 in the fourth set with a match point. Roger Federer -- storming back winning five straight games to take the fourth set 75 and and even up the game at two sets all Djokovic says it was gut check time. It was disappointing losing the fourth set that being so close to win it in match point. Djokovic steady himself rallied for a rally for a five set victory and said it was his mental toughness that eventually won the day. The only way I could have. Won the -- -- by believing that I can make it all the way at the end and staying mentally strong and that's that's what I've done I didn't allow my emotions creative way. The win gives Djokovic his second Wimbledon title and allows them to regain the number one ranking in the world. Could king James be taking his game back the Cleveland. That's what the cavaliers are hoping and they think that but they might have a real shot at breaking james' home -- like the recent resigning of all star game MVP Harry Irving. And the drafting him number one overall pick Andrew -- as signs that the team is on the rise they've also already -- would do this agent hoping to mend some of the hard feelings that occurred when James left -- for Miami. As for James himself he's expected to meet the Miami Heat president Pat Riley later this week and go from there. And congratulations to former raging cajun Jonathan -- now a catcher with the Milwaukee Brewers -- was elected to his first Major League Baseball all star game this week. I'm mark minority and that's your early look at sports so what is on your populist give a sports bucket list teams you'd like to attend some he would like to go all I would love to go to Wimbledon.
