Rosol's loss was so expected
I was when I saw that. Typical.
Serena's play is spotty. I have no idea why she is not going to the net more. She's so stubborn.
I can't see Serena beating Kvitova with this form.
Roddick/Ferrer 1 set a piece. This could go on for another couple of hours - and then we still have to see Murray/Baghdatis. I would assume the roof would come on at some point in that match - if not before depending on what time it was due to start. Glad they re-opened the roof today - they had it closed this morning due to showers. After the bad decision to keep it closed yesterday even though they had no rain during any of the matches on center they obviously decided to keep their fingers crossed for no passing showers today
Roddick complaining to the chair that Hawkeye is wrong
Well, it was about time for Roddick's required temper tantrum of the match.
Oh, no! Rufus the Wimbledon hawk has been stolen!
Roddick challenging his own serve because Ferrer hit a winner off of it. The serve was in, of course.
Stay classy, Andy.
Ferrer beats Roddick in 4 - I was a little surprised at that as Andy is a more natural grass court player but Ferrer does keep fighting and an excellent win for him. Of course he has now got Del-Potro - that could be an interesting match.
Now we get Murray - what is going to happen with that roof!!
Querrey has taken the match with Cilic to the 5th winning 2 tie-breaks.
Yikes just saw this on the BBC web-page
Apparently it is known as a golden set
But what happened to Errani - she had been playing so well
The golden set
Wow, a golden set! I think Serena was one point away from doing that a year or so ago.
Shvedova was one point from having a golden set at Amelia Island years ago, but she ended uploading the match 16 60 60.
Querrey-Cilic going deep in the 5th - 9-9. I hope it get's done tonight otherwise they'll have to wait until Monday to finish!!
OMG! There's a woman knitting while watching the Murray-Baghdatis match. Is she Canadian?
Has she been giving regular standing ovations for great shots (and even not so great shots)?
Finally - Cilic wins in the 5th - 17-15!!!!
Murray- Baghdatis 1 set a piece - Baghdatis playing really well. And now they close the roof!!
Baghdatis levels with the 2nd set 6-3
Is that true? I've never heard of a player challenging a call to make their shot OUT. I'll have to YT search. That's pretty funny. ARod is such an AHole that I'm glad he lost. This is probably his last season also.
Matt Cronin tweeted about it and it was shown on ESPN:
Also, as per the BBC, Marcos is going to be a dad soon His girlfriend, former Croatian WTA player Karolina Sprem, is pregnant Congrats to them!
Just re: Shvedova and her golden set. I remember watching her live a few years ago at the Birmingham tournament and seriously wondering why she hadn't achieved more in her singles career because she was so f*ckin good. Really one of those players I had to see in person to truly appreciate. So glad to see her having a wonderful few months!
So can Murray finish the set in 12 minutes? If not they come back on Monday to finish the match!!
Murray leading 2 sets to 1, and 3-0 in the 4th set
11pm - but with Murray about to serve for the match they are allowing him to try to serve it out!!
Murray wins in 4 sets
I've never seen anybody try to beat the clock like that
Good that Murray was able to finish the match. I think Baghdatis was helping a bit in the plight to beat the clock.
I get the feeling Roddick won't be back - I sensed some kind of farewell at the end of that match.
I can easily see him retiring after the US Open. He needs to, his attitude is tiring. It must take a lot of energy to be such a little bitch.
^it would explain why his serve and FH have slowed down over the years.
I hate middle Sunday. I am so bored and have nothing to watch. I hate that Wimbledon doesn't allow play on Sunday.
OnyxRose, I feel a similar petulance. But then I look at Monday's OOP and feel mostly better.
I have always hated it, especially when I have work and that Sunday is one of the few days I can dedicate to watching tennis all morning long.
I picked Shvedova to upset Serena, and - having lost the first 6-1 - she is about to serve for the second at 5-2. Interesting.
Schiavone has the first set against Kvitova 6-4. Petra is 0/10 on BPs and is being her usual streaky, frustrating self.
Youzhny currently cruising against Istomin by a set and a break. He has lost 6 (six!) fourth tounds at Wimbledon, never advancing to the QF. Now is his chance.
And it's one set-all Serena-Shvedova Yari is playing so well!
Paszek beats Vinci 6-2 6-2! Defending her QF points Well done! Love watching her.
I know I'm talking to myself, but hey...
Malisse serving for the first set vs Federer.
4-3 to Shvedova final set aganst Serena.
Lisicki led Sharapova 5-2 but that has inevitably been cut to 5-4.
Youzhny led Istomin 6-4 4-2... completely gone off the boil since. one set all.
Lisicki 6 - 4 Sharapova
Federer 7 - 6 Malisse - Malisse served for the set at 6-5, lost his serve easily and then won one point in the TB
Serena serving to stay in the tournament...
