There should be some good tennis between Nishi and Stakh.

For some reason I have no recollection of how Nishi plays on grass.

Plus Pouille-JJ.

I read that Shapalov told JJ: "Don't talk to me man!" during the match. I just saw a few points. Shapalov played well, just too aggressive. JJ must have wound him up.

Anyone knows what happened?

Interesting to see Rosol 2 sets to 1 up against Muller. Whilst that would remove another seed from Rafa's path,  it does give the potential for a Nadal-Rosol match in R4...

Would be cool to see Rosol take on Nadal on CC again.

I'll never forget that match. It was awesome!

I wonder what TUEs Konta is on.

Vekic already half dead from trying to keep up with Kont's bashing pace.

Yes a nice guy, great game, Probably one of the worst 5 setter record, though. Probably not using any "help".

If anyone is watching Khashanov v Montero, it's clear that Khacha will struggle v Nadal. the court is so slow he can't get rid of Monetro the retriever.

BTW, I was talking to our line judge (we have one in our club often on CC or court 1) last night and she did not notice the courts were slower but heard most players complaining about it.

Ah....just heard that the courts are now "shaved at 8mm"...whereas last time i heard i was 9mm....small difference but that's probably makes the grass grippier....on top of the slow balls.

It's absolutely discusting to see Kacha's shots returns easier than if it was clay.

I really think it is as slow as clay at this stage...and will get worse from now.

worth noting that she fell towards the end of the 3rd set but no drama or poor sportsmanship form her

Forget about Khacha stopping Nadal...won't happen...not close. 3 sets...if he gets past Monteiro!!!!. On this courts it's going to be between Nadal and Fed or Djoko. More inclined to go for Djoko actually.

I just had a look at Nadal's draw...nobody there!

Maybe a crazy, confident Cilic...

If Nadal had either Rosol or Brown again he'd lose again.  Luckily, he's escaped them.  I just hope Young can bring something.

You think every single surface is exactly the same speed and bounce - and they aren't.

Wow, Murray just handed the ballkid a clump of dead, dry turf.

As things stand, there will be no grass left in the final.

Murray scowling and moaning and shouting MINE.  What an obnoxious player he is.  Can't even appreciate a player like Brown. A player who has more variety and magic than he ever will.

Fucks same, aren't they bored with favouring the road runner ball bashers? I guess not, and maybe Murray plays a part in that.

Yeah slower play unfortunately. I think a few players have also commented that the balls are slower but then again that seems to be said every year so not sure how much credence to put in it.

If he does have hip problems, Murray must be playing with some horse painkillers, because I don't see any trouble with his movement.

He is running like crazy in all directions.

Wel, maybe it's is getting slower every year. I guees this year it's just a little more obvious.

When i watched the first few rallies on monday (after have gotten used to the Halle and Queens pace) i found it dead slow right away. It's a shame because it takes the occasional upset away. You can almost bet your house on Murray-NAdal and Fed-Djoko semis. And under these conditions, Fed is no longer fav to win it from there.
