    Dunno if I've missed it as on my phone, but can't see a thread yet.

    Nadal out yesterday, his movement was definitely compromised by his knee, but nevertheless a big shock at this stage, especially after the french open win.

    Djokovic looks comfortable against mayer here, expect him to be through in the next half an hour 3 straight sets.

    The three mens favourites have to Djokovic, Murray & Federer. Probably in that order, but it feels unfair to Federer to put him third, simply cos he seems to live to play on these courts.

    I fucking love Wimbledon, & I'd love Murray to win it just to prove the dickheads who think he's a let down simply cos he hasn't won it wrong. He's a phenomenal tennis player & deserves to be treated as such.

    It was very sporting, he handled it perfectly.

    The journo's were complete disks though, three times he explained why he wouldn't talk about his knee as it would be an excuse when the important thing was his opponent won. Then yet another question about his knee followed, you could hear him get angry but he managed to simply sound incredulous as opposed to fucking angry.

    Djokovic's only real challenge to the final will be Berdych in the quarters so it's almost a cert that it will be a Djokovic/Murray or Djockovic/Federer  final.
    If it's a five setter between Fed and Murray in the semis the advantage will almost be certainly Djokovic's.

    The women's look an absolute cake walk for Serena but I've put a small few quid on Sloane Stephens at 70-1 who's a rising star in the game and Sabine Lisicki at 60-1 whom plays the grass courts as good as anyone on her day but fully expecting Serena to win it.

    Perhaps it has always been this way but i feel more and more of the players these days don't like the grass courts . I suppose there is some logic in that the grass season is very short so why put so much effort into it but it's a pity , i still personally hold wimbledon as the top grand slam . And i wish there was just a little bit more old school serve and volleying .

    The Murray love-in on Sky and Bbc is vomit inducing.
    Nothing against Murray per say but I hope it ends in tears.

    Surely now is the time to sell those bets to guarantee a profit?

    I've layed Lisicki at 3.75 but going to let the Stephens bet ride.
    Small profit made already but if either girl win I make a very nice sum especially on Stephens.
