    It seems play has been stopped by rain. At least they're putting the roof in place on centre court.

    Youzhny 2 sets up and Fed won the first in his match on a tie break.

    Schiavone not happy she had to play on - especially as half the courts are currently suspended!! It's tough on days like today when it actually isn't raining but drizzling!!

    Frankie slipped badly in the 2nd set, was up a break. Rain delay, came back lost the set. Really upset and reluctant to start the 3rd. Huge swing in momentum in 20 minutes, now she's down 1-5 to Petra in the 3rd.

    AHHH Frankie :(

    Petra vs Serena, could go either way. She's a better mover than Petra and she has struggled against player who move well.

    She needs to play smarter and play to Petra's backhand and move the ball around.

    Aggie Radwanska beating down Gorgi. Looks like all Italian women going down in the 4th round.

    Vinci lost to Paszek, Frankie goes down to Petra and Gorgi is being dominated by Aggie R.

    Aggie R is the sleeper so far, she is playing outstanding tennis. #3 seed isn't talked about much so far and there has been little talk about Vika too. I hope Vika can win again Ana I.

    I love Sabine - after hearing her story last year I really wanted her to win last year and will have no probs if she beats Maria today!!

    ETA: On her 3rd MP Sabine does it :encore:

    She won with a 2nd serve ace! :cheer2:

    I just jumped out my skin and was screaming for about 30 seconds

    Don't know if I've ever mentioned that a very close friend of mine was a small part of Lisicki's coaching team when she was a kid. He said she was lovely. Hence I always feel a little soft spot for her.

    Yes, Lisicki beat Maria. :)

    Sabine held her nerves in check and Maria's serve was not on today.

    Kim down a set to Kerber. Kerber won first set 6-1.

    Aggie serving for the match; won 1st set 6-2 and 5-2 in the 2nd.

    The 20 year old GiorgiI(Italian) has a bright future. Pretty girl too :)

    Aggie was broken but proceeded to break right back to win the match - she has to be a good bet to win the title!! She lets her tennis do all the talking!!

    ESPN just announced, if Vika wins today, she will regain her #1 ranking. I don't know if that is right. I thought Vika had to get to finals in order to get the #1 back. She's about 600 pts behind Maria.

    Where did Maria go out of Wimbledon last year? If it was the semi's then she has not defended her points.

    I agree. Aggie is having a phenomenal year. Playing outstanding tennis and the most variety and best movement of the 10 top players right now.

    Switching coaching has paid off for her.

    Yep, that's the reason I guess. I still thought Vika needs to get to the finals though. But maybe I'm wrong. We'll find out if Vika wins today. She's needs to come out strong. Ana is a dangerous player.

    Maria lost last year's final to Kvitova. If Azarenka beats Ivanovic she is back to number one (I believe)

    I've never seen Federer look so phyiscally weak. His back must really be playing up.

    Kerber leads 6-1 4-0 against Clijsters :eek: Could have an all German QF :D

    Interesting surprises to wake up today! I love Sabine; so it's great to see!

    I wonder who will reach the final from the top half. My bet is on Aga. Petra, Vika & Serena all in the bottom half.

    Kerber is playing great; all German quarter should be great!

    Looks like it.

    I can't recall the Italian and German women having the depth of talent they have now in the tennis. Ladies tennis.

    Good to see :)

    Just watching Kerber-Clijsters right now. Angie is on fire!

    Poor Kim. Looks like these are the last moments for her at Wimbledon.

    Angie wins 6-1 6-1 :cheer2: She's probably my favourite player of the year so far. Woman has some skillz!

    Poor Kim though. Her last Wimbledon match is one she'll want to forget.

    Sad to see Kim lose so badly, although no a surprise. Sabine looked great against Sharapova. Federer didn't look great again, but I'm glad he pulled through.

    Fed actually went off the court in the first set for an injury timeout - I believe it was his back and he had pain killers - and he very rarely does that!! That does not bode well for the rest of the torney unless it was just a spasm that came on.

    About Ivanovic:

    1) She's losing more and more weight.
    2) Has she got a new backhand?

    Lovin Lindsay Davenport in the commentary booth for Azarenka-Ivanovic. She's so articulate without being overly-chatty or annoying.

    I agree she is really lean now. I don't how that's helping her.

    Finally getting the roof on on the center court so we will get some more tennis there - hopefully the rain backs off so the rest can get back on as well.
