One of the most exciting in recent years with........

* Nadal out so early.
* All the other top players like Murray, Roger and Novak all dropping sets in early rounds.
* Heather Watson reaching the third round.
* Venus going out in the first round.

Has been a strange old tournament hasn't it? The draw is opening up nicely for Murray, which means Bhagdatis will do him tomorrow lol!

indeed he will but i believe Fed has a few more grand slams in him yet and no where better to start than at his favourite tournament .

Djokovic is immense but Nadal beat him on Clay and i expect Fed to beat him on Grass

Federer is well up for it with that fight back he put on tonight.

He gets his number 1 ranking back if he becomes champion, so he's probably going to be more dangerous than he usually is.

I always enjoy middle saturday of Wimbledon when Sue Barker gets to introduce all the big celebrities in the royal box.

It was disgusting how that nobody played against Nadal. It wasn't even tennis how he just unloaded on everything including Nadal's first serve

If Murray chokes and doesn't make the final I will laugh so much. I truely can't stand him was better when Henman was you Brits big hope as he didn't have the maturity of a five year old.

Still think you need to pencil in Djoko to win again. Of course the wild cards are Tsonga and Del Potro. Can see it being like Aus Open 2008 where the guns got knocked out and Djoko had a relatively easy final vs Tsonga. 
All Hail Mitchell Johnson and David Warner.

i'm not a fan of murray - he has zero personality but has played some decent tennis so far in this wimbledon.

if theres a way to beat Nadal then utilize it ... its the same with all players .. Federer cant handle sustained high paced games so nadal utilizes that

This year has thrown in some shocks and i expect to see a few more.

I Predict Del Potro to do well but Federer to win it

Disagree. But it was disgusting how you can have 20 seconds between shots yet Nadal was constantly taking 26 seconds as they were timed and the umpire wasn't warning him. It's also disgusting the guy who beat Nadal on grass two weeks ago, versus the guy who beat him on grass two days ago have been put on the shitty court 12.

Murray won't reach the final. He will never win a grand slam title and all the hysteria about the possibility is press propaganda to sell more newspapers and to get more viewers.

Sticking your neck out thinking the defending champion and worlds number 1 will win it LOL 27 of the last 28 finals have been won by the same three guys so we are due a change to freshen things up.

I totally agree that it's a farce that Rosol is stuck out on court 12 after beating Nadal. the good thing for the everyone is that Novak and Roger could play eachother in the semi final so if Murrary is going to make a Wimbledon final this is the year to do it.
