1. Ernests Gulbis (LAT) I'd like Tsonga to win...but I feel he will have trouble handling Gulbis pace.


2. Roger Federer (SUI) [3]


3. Julien Benneteau (FRA) [31]


4. Radek Stepanek (CZE)


5. Nicolas Mahut (FRA)


6.  Lukasz Kubot (POL)  ...sadly. I dislike Kubot!

Who is the better returner Tsonga or Gulbis, I can't remember.
I think they are both OK, will be definitely very interesting. I am even going to watch Murray-Lu in hope Run

12:04Belgian journalist Filip Dewulf is reporting that Steve Darcis will NOT play his second-round match against Lukasz Kubot because of a shoulder injury. No confirmation from the tournament officials at this stage. I will keep you posted.

Further bad news!

John Isner retires hurt

11:58Horrible for Isner, who tweaked his left knee in the opening game and cannot continue. Adrian Mannarino gets an almost free pass into round three where he'll face Lleyton Hewitt or Dustin Brown. Brown leads that one 3-2 on serve on No.2 Court.

watching Troicki-Kuznetsov Troicki 2:0, hoping to cheer a bit for him on Friday if he wins today,  will switch to Hewitt Brown now.
I remember Brown wanting UK citizenship after he had a good run I forgot in which major tournament now,  and they turned him down so he took German a few years ago....

JJ a set up against Step.

Since Fed played twice in a row on CC, should he win, he will most likely be put on C1....sadly! Unless Murray does instead of Federer.

Gulbis Tsonga starting any minute, so happy they are playing on CC.
Murray ahving to play on C1 as a result.

A big Applause for Wimbledon, this would never happen at AO, USO or RG.

The AE is certainly doing well this year....though I have seen fair scheduling in the other slams....Certainly USO and FO....AO's is really dodgy though.

I didn't realise this Robert Paire is playing is also French. I was almost annoyed with the umpire with the way he was pronouncing his name, so went and checked, I really thought he was American (he certainly looks it!) Laugh

Yes, the list is worryingly long for just one day:

complete w/o from Azarenka, Darcis & Cilic
retirements from Stepanek and Isner, and that's just from what I've picked up, maybe there are even more.

Paire slipped many times. I think it's a lot to do with so many players not knowing how to move on grass.
Some players never seem to slip.
