That match was AMAZING! Brilliant tennis. Wimbledon really comes into its own when it gets past 8pm!

Another easy win for Federer as he progress into the third round.
I had a feeling she might struggle against Pasek, I watched the Eastbourne final and Pasek was excellent in that, winning it. She had also knocked out Bartoli in the semi's.

Looks like Andy Murray is on the mission as he got passed Marin Cilic and recently David Ferrer. Now he's into the semi final as Tsonga will be his opponent. Another comfortable win for Federer and Djokovic as they both meet in the semi final, which will be a must see.

Plus the surprise keeps coming in the women singles as Sharapova crashed out to Lisicki. This could be a chance for Serena Williams after beating Petra Kvitova and she'll face Victoria Azarenka in the last four. Radwanska is also a contender for the grand slam after edging out Kirilenko.

This is getting interesting.

Cant wait for the Federer Djokovic match. I would love to see Federer win it. And I think he stands his best chance while playing on the grass. As for Murray, hes got a great record versus Tsonga, won 5 out of 6 so im told. He'll probably lose then :lol: . Seriously though, this is probably going to be his best ever chance of getting to the final until Federer retires, so he should be desperate to get through.

Would love to see a Federer Murray final, with Federer winning it.

Something thats annoying me is the prize money debate, what the women are failing to realise is that they are actually earning more money than the men because they are playing far less tennis for it. At the very least they should all be playing best of 5 sets. Dont know what all the fuss is about really from their point of view. If I was a pro player I wouldnt be particularly pleased that women were getting equally rewarded for playing less tennis, and dare I say it, even though they are indeed excellent, to a lower standard.

Why don't the women play best-of-5? I've never understood it.

A Federer/Murray final would be awesome, though Djokovic and Tspnga are very big hurdles!!

Totally agree, if they want to be paid the same amount of money then play the same amount of sets.

Glad Murray won, tough game, got a day of rest until friday. I just want to see an english, sorry britishman ;) in a Wimbledon final in my lifetime. Hope he wins on Friday

I feel a bit sorry for Jonathan Marray. First Brit in the men's doubles final for over fifty years, and everyone's talking about Andy Murray.

I guess he'll have to go back to being English if he loses though. :D

Watching Andy Murray play is like watching Tim Henman all over again. I now have no flipping nails left! All the same; it makes a refreshing change for a Brit to get through to the final. :)

I've just been watching the Men's Doubles final and that was pure fairytale.

Not only is Marray still British, but it seems that Nielsen is as well now. :lol:

Obviously not for you. Still, it's not that subtle and I can live in hope that someone out there will get it. :wink:
