    Yes, and the Haas-Federer match occurred the day after Nadal lost to Soderling!

    Glad Fed pulled out the win, especially after the disappointment of losing Nadal. Fed didn't look great today, but hopefully he can pick it up in the next round.

    Serena down a set against Zheng. Lots of errors from her...

    Gotta admire Zheng however - she has held onto her serve and pushed Serena - which is forcing Serena to make those errors.

    Serena's movement isn't that great. She's not making the adjustments to the windy conditions. I've seen her at the net like twice.

    Geez, top players struggling all over the place. Serena seems to be picking it up though.

    Serena easily won that 2nd set - I suspect she will continue on and win the match now.

    Also Rosol just got beat in 3 sets to Kohlschrieber.

    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 :)

    Well, it was about time for Roddick's required temper tantrum of the match.

    Roddick challenging his own serve because Ferrer hit a winner off of it. The serve was in, of course. :rofl:

    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 :eek:

    Apparently it is known as a golden set :cool:

    But what happened to Errani - she had been playing so well :(

    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.

    Has she been giving regular standing ovations for great shots (and even not so great shots)? :lol:
