    Draw is about to take place.

    Looking forward to the tournament. Murray making it to the quarter finals and choking.

    Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are in the same half.

    Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray are in the same half.

    Hopefully someone can break the monopoly of the big four... oh wait, wrong sport.

    Nah. Murray's not a choker. He's just not quite as good as the others.

    Another Nadal-Djokovic final, I think. They're becoming the big two now Federer is fading.

    A bit of both I think with Murray. He often makes more unforced errors in bigger games. Most players who make it to that many late round games will win a % just by catching better form.

    Suspect you are right on the mens final.

    Disagree, he's a class act and is well capable of beating any of the others, as he has proved in the past. Most of his losses to them have been through lack of consistency, injury, or luck. The added pressure and expectation of being British can't help either. I don't think this will be his year for a slam, but it's only a matter of time imo.

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    Murray should make the semis again - and hope that nadal is below par - if he gets to the final, I can see him winning it

    I've always thought the US or Australian were Murray's most likely slams. Still do think that.

    copliker ...

    He's in Nadal's half of the draw along with Del Potro, Tsonga, Cilic, Ferrer and ace machine Raonic.

    Ouch, he's going to have to do it the hard way.

    Davydenko first up.

    Day 1 then :)

    Have removed the Euro2012 app from my phone and put the Wimbledon app in its place.

    Was just lookin at that app myself, but the reviews weren't good... :hmm:

    Watson did well with a win yesterday :) Murray isn't in great shape is he? Out of Queen's in round 1, still carrying that injury... Maybe not his year this one.

    Ok, well he's done aright so far... :hmm:

    6-1, 6-1, 6-4.

    Not bad.

    poului a bit overrated

    Yeah he looked the business there.

    The Wimbledon app is usually really good but haven't tried this year's update yet. Great match by Murray, looking good so far. Laura Robson did well too and should have won.

    App is okay.

    Listened to the Murray game yesterday. Commentary was very encouraging about his play.

    Watson into the 3rd round, nice one :)

    Aye, couldn't watch the match but sounded like she performed pretty well, with a bit of a wobble at one point (though she won 6-1, 6-4, so can't see how it could have been much of a wobble!). Might meet the 3rd seed in the next round though...

    Is Nadal about to get knocked out in the second round? Has to break serve somehow to stay in it.

    Uh oh, doesn't look good but he'll pull through...

    Innit. Breaking in the first game of the fifth and holding serve. Some balls

    That kid's serve is unbelievable, and his returning wasn't too shabby either!

    Amazing to watch.

    I'm not that bovvered about tennis but fuck me that was exciting :D

    Gerry1time pities the neurotypical

    Wow, quite frankly. I'll totally be watching that match again on t'interwebs. It wasn't just Nadal being off form though, Rosol had an arm like a traction engine. That was liquid tennis.
