    Default Wimbledon

    No thread yet? Miles I'm disappointed. Its normally this time that you get your tennis fan hat on and predict a Murray victory. This year you might be right! Im still going for Novak.

    Nadal crashes out, he didn't look comfortable at all.

    Must remember the over 3.5 sets bet for the blokes semis.

    Hewitt looked like he was getting blown away in that second set. Got to love his fight.

    Nadal hasn't been long back from injury I suppose. I know he won the French Open but he's a freak on clay. I don't even think he played a warm up event on grass did he? Still a shock but he was probably the most ripe of the top seeds for an early loss.

    I've got Djokovic to win in a treble with Spain to win the Confederations Cup and Golovkin to KO Macklin. Couldn't resist a tenner on Federer at 10/1 either. If you have a look at the betting thread though that doesn't bode well for either of them.

    Of course Andy Murray is going to win it! Nadal is gone, now just Djokovic and Federer (who is past it) to fall. Muhahaha!

    yep only Djokovic can stop Murray now I feel. Roger will have a'bad day' at some point maybe sooner rather than later and may even quit at end of this season.

    Tsonga on his day is capable of straight setting Murray but unfortunately his 'days' are few and far between.

    Am not a major tennis fan but despite his brilliant slam record the French aside Nadal is not actually that consistent which surprised me . Even if he surpasses fed's record I wouldn't put him above him as greatest all time - though without doubt the best clay player ever by a long way.

    Fed however is consistent on all surfaces - ok he only won one French but that's because Nadal exists

    Was impressed with Murray's opponent, some wicked shots there.

    Agree with the above except about Tsonga on his day doing Murray in straights. That would be a day never seen before and would have to coincide with a terrible day for Murray. Tsonga is really good, and on his day is a threat to anyone but it's not as if he just needs to play to his best to wipe the floor with Murray. Murray is the better player on both of their best days.

    Very very well played Laura Robson.
    Knocks out the world number 10 in straight sets. She looked a top 5 player for the first set and a half.
    The draw is actually good for her the next couple of rounds so she could make it to round 4...when she would be scheduled to play a certain S.Williams.

    Robson is a very good prospect. She is still very inconsistent but that is understandable. She is the youngest player in the top 100 and the only teenager in the top 50. She can hit wild shots but she has a lot of big weapons.

    Laura Robson is fit and what a silly childish spat between Sharapova and Serena Williams about being invited to the “cool parties”.

    Yeah Robson looked like she was hitting well today. She looks fitter too, not in a master kinda way but in a purely athletic kinda way. Looks a bit trimmer.

    We all know what you mean, do not try and act all innocent. Has she trimmed her beaver, you must have had a great view. Missed it.

    Yeah she has definitely got rid of that bit of puppy fat.
    She is a real power hitter. Only a handful of women in the game hit harder, and in the not too distant future it will only be Serena that hits harder.
    Her movement is improving but still needs to come on. Plus she needs to continue the progress made on her serve. It's a powerful weapon for her but it has misfired badly this year. Was good today though. Future top 5 player I'm sure.
