Tuning in...yes it is gorgeous...

Sipping pimms in the sunshine watching tennis players in white (I have always thought tennis players to be the most handsome athletes) is fantastic.

And the thing about Wimbledon - everyone is really happy to be there.

But even when I first saw it on TV all those years ago I fell in love with it..and wanted to win it!

Ward provding nothing more than an average hitting session. Bagel 1st set.

Mannarino, joy to wath play on grass. You were right about Edmund, T.
21 and already very fit. Easier to see it in cotrast with Manna.

Castle, Henman and Courier commentating for BBC.

Castle is really hilarious..at least he is not pretending he knows much & doing a great job of making matches watchable for those who know little about the game by asking some good questions.

He just does not stop, that's all. Laugh

Henman not politically correct but very knowledgeable and informative, allowing reading between the lines, too.

Courier- giving minimum, but also talking from the perspective of a contemporary coach, requirements of modern tennis,p... so all three put together - something for everyone!

Still, gimmie silence any time!

Federer struggling hard to put Pella away... Fed is playing well.. credit to Pella, he is playing quiet good in pressure situations.

Pella is some tenacious points...

Fed is playing good on his own serve. Getting chances on Pella's but just not able to put him away..

I've been watching the match on thenipad the  during my spinning class! 
I am taking  my tennis nutness to the new level. diva

I covered 45 km...and suffered with Fed...

It's all about fitness, innit, we fans have to keep up. Run

Btw, Fed is playing really badly. 
Lump in the throat watching him slow but fighting.

Then what do you do...close your eyes, two gears up and flyyyyyy...cos there's no other way....

federer looking a little vulnerable in his first round match,especially in the first set where he looked unsure f himself and his movement
but the way he improved throughout the match leads me to believe its down to not having enough matches under his belt this season
it looks to me like federer still feels lke he has something left to prove

Federer looked dead on his feet. 
His FH has become a rallying shot.

Ljubicic in his box is a disaster.

Yes tenacious from Pella but federer mouvement (or flexibility) was poor. I don;t think he is 100%. In fact I am sure he is not.

Also missing his first 9 BP......is becoming a trend!

federer saying in his post match interview: "It's so much about fitness nowadays!".

Also the conds are even slower than before according to many players!...and frankly I am not surprised after having seen it from close at roehampton!

Also Federer's next opponent is the guy I saw play v Rublev. He is in fact the coach of a friend's daughter. She was supporting him while I was supporting Rublev. very bizarre berankis lost to him. He certainly looked very defensive (though a good serve) and quite chubby hence poor mouvement. fed is going to walk that second round even if his back is cemented.

Its been a trend for a long time now. Reminds me of how many did he miss in Usopen 2015 final. Had he taken 40% of those, he could have been having 18 slams. 

If we have some stats showing  % of BP conversion in last 3 years, Fed will not be in top-10. His recent losses on grass in Stuttgart and Halle were also due to missing BPs on important occasions.

Yes that USO was bad.

The question is why he missed them and keeps missing them.

Sometimes he can't do much but a lot of thimes esp in that USO final he was nervous and missing really easy put-away shots by either going for too much or just playing the wrong shot/not thinking clearly.

I know it has a lot to do woth playing under great pressure to hit more balls tan he wants to, but I always expect or imagine he can never be afgected by anything mentally. Blush

I am curious if he had the same problem vs Nadal as I haven't seen many of their matches.

Kyrgios will probably win this match but showing again he is gutless.

He takes no risk when the heat is on.

Radek has all the shots and flair.

Gorgeous BH slice and volleys and he wins the third set!

Good on Llayani to give Kyrgios conduct violation warning.

Kyrgios was really dirty trying to provie and make Llayani repeat his foulmouthing by : "Whad did I say?" and fet bis yobby fans on his side, but Llayani managed to outsmart him in the end. Applause

Tomic also...super shots, great hands...shame about the empty head and small heart.

I've said it a million times and I'll say it again: what a waste of talent!!! Angry

I can't believe Hewitt is in his box...if only he could pass on some of his grit...

Didn't Tomic once say Hewitt is not good enough for his practice session...Laugh
