    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 :cheer2: Congrats to them!

    ^Congrats guys!

    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!

    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 :rolleyes: 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.

    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 :lol:

    Serena serving to stay in the tournament...

    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.
