Quelle surprise, Heather Watson lost. A break up in the 3rd set...and shat it, to a player who had never won at Wimbledon before.

 

Useless.

 

 

Typical British female  players . All that sounds investment in them . Pathetic really

yup. Back problems and, by the look of it, bruising to the jaw and, on a particularly big groundstroke, temporary loss of hearing.

Preferred Annabel Croft to Sabatini, even all those years ago at high school.

Correct.

She's quite attractive but you may be referring to Laura Robson who was well worth a drop shot but I think she fecked her wrist so had to give it up.

 

🤔

 

She fecked up my wrist too when she was playing...

Some good matches to look out for today

 

Evans v Lopez ( hard to call but since you guys rave about thd ladies I’ll rave about Lopez 😎

 

Dimitrov v Verdasco 

 

Kyrigios v Humbert ( only cause he’s a radge and a good laugh to see his antics on court ) 

 

Norrie v Pouille ( tight match ) 

 

Ladies ; 

 

Mertens v Dart ( expect another shit Brit out first round ) 

 

Rogers v Stosur ( hard to call ) 

 

Barty v Suarez Navarro ( this might be a 3 setter not surprised if it’s an upset) 

 

Sasnovich v Serena ( never heard of her but the old lion hopefully roars through this round ) 

 

Cornet v Andrescuu ( could be another tight match )

Aye, he's a good looking lad. I wouldn't want him coming into the bar while I was chatting to Annabel Croft.

 

That should be a good match, though. Evans ought to win but the commentators will be getting on our nerves about 'British hopes' throughout when all I'm interested in is a decent tennis match. Thankfully Deliciano is a Spaniard; if we had an Englishman up against a German, I'd probably have to take the dog out for a very long walk.

Lol 😂 hopefully it’s a long match so I can ogle sorry watch it . I’m out later in afternoon so might not see it all if it’s a 5 setter . It might well be . I like Evans as he’s a working class lad so he’s nit had it easy like some other Brits .

Yep - Evo fell into bad ways when he had a little success and recognition, served his time and decided to focus and come back stronger. He's deserved his successes over the last few years.

 

They're about to kick off now.

I like Evans too, has some character, unlike the likes of Edmund.

Could be boredom, could be using his knee for support to make sure he's steady and can focus properly

You're right. It looks like his right hand is in the correct position.

 

Just had a quick scan down the order of play. Andy Murray's next opponent is due to come back on court later to finish off a five setter. Currently 9-9 in the fifth set.

 

Cori Gauff taking on the Brit, Fran Jones, who was born missing some fingers.

Toes too, think she was born only with 7. Impressive that she's managed to overcome that to become a tennis professional, as you'd expect balance as well as gripping the racket is inordinately harder for her than someone born with the full complement.

I'm not sure it's boredom, but here's the same image with better focus so you can judge for yourself.

He hasn’t . Think he got a wild card ? I like  him But think his winning days are over . He was very vulnerable last night and could easily have lost .

I think he made the draw based on his own ranking. He's just outside the top 100. I know there's a handful of wildcards and qualifiers from outside the top 128 but, with all the dropouts and injuries in the top 100, I think Murray didn't need to rely on a WC this year.

Can someone please explain why John Inverdale is a commentator ??? He is atrocious . The only decent ones are Mark Petchey and Andrew castle IMO . Martina , Chris and Billie Jean are not bad on the women’s commentary . Still can’t beat old Dan Maskell , think he nearly spilled his strawberries over him when Martina had her “ Friend “ Judy Neilson in her box in the 1980s 😂😂😂

I've got a mate who's there at Wimbledon today. He tricked me into turning on the video stream to watch Barty v Suarez-Navarro. Told me it would be a hubba-hubba moment. Very disappointing and the tennis is shite too, although it's nice to see one of them trying the single handed backhand. Couldn't hit a barn door with it but it's still an elegant shot; reminds me why I grew to like Federer before the golden jacket shite.

That’s an Incredibly tough shot to pull off . Still think Seles running two handed back hand was amazing . Sabitini also did a very elegant  drop shot with incredible spin . Sanchez Viccario too . McEnroe lefty serve with spin .

rudi must stay

Impressed with Barty there. Plays a game that isn't big hitting and intimidation instead moving her opponent around, refreshing

Andrew Castle not at all popular over Twitter. I avoid the TV commentary and tune into Wimbledon Radio on the official website. I don't need to have shot by shot description when I can see it myself so it's the chat all around it that matters more. The guys on the radio earn their crust, having to have sound going on all the time. They'll be parched today, talking non-stop when there's only two matches playing!

 

Inverdale's a grade A James Hunt but if he wasn't around, we wouldn't have this beauty:
