    Great win for Narang there. Seeds dropping like flies at the moment.

    The Championships, Wimbledon II - Gentlemen's Doubles
    GRAND SLAM - Thursday (1st Round) - Wimbledon, United Kingdom - Grass

    • Top seeds Heath Davis and Jojo Mustard made an imposing start to their title search with a straight sets annihilation of wildcards Jimmy Bolton and David Heath. Things were close in the first set, before... well, there weren't many positives for the British duo to take out of the match. Davis and Mustard tore them apart with clinical fashion to advance to the second round 6-3, 6-0, 6-0. They now play Halle champs Ashim and Seby Kumar who beat Kasper Buur and Anvar Juraev 6-0, 7-6(4), 7-6(7).


    • In the same section, prospective quarter final opponents Rob Bowenburg and Jarkko Maxum survived a major scare to beat little known qualifiers Christophe Norman and Bjorn Tol. The eighth seeds looked in complete control after taking the first set 6-1, but stumbled badly to drop the next two sets two and four. Staring down the barrel of a first round exit, the eighth seeds did enough to get back into the match and attacked the Dutchman Tol more aggressively to secure a 6-1, 2-6, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1. They now face an interesting opponent in Almen Benaglio and Becker Haas who, making up for first round singles exits, produced a straight sets win.


    • Seeded players out: None.

    Excellent first up win. This is the slam that Mustard wants.

    Nice clean win there. Won't tire us out too much for the next round of singles either.

    The most perversely interesting second round meeting is James/Robinson vs. Gray/Robinson. Jimmy Gray and Ryan Robinson were given a wildcard entry into the doubles draw. Robinson is the older brother of Ralph Robinson and a three-time Wimbledon singles champ, while Gray won the doubles here pre-Open Era and made the quarters of the singles.

    Brutal for Davis/Mustard vs. Bowenburg/Maxum as early as the quarters.

    The Championships, Wimbledon II - Gentlemen's Singles
    GRAND SLAM - Friday (3rd Round) - Wimbledon, United Kingdom - Grass

    • 23rd seed Heath Davis has cruised into the final sixteen with a third straight sets win for the week as he easily defeated American Randy Bruce. The West CWLander has benefited from a number of upsets in his section, while he was faced with a lower ranked player who had won one of the games of his life on Wednesday. Bruce was shaky early and it cost him with breaks in the first two sets; the American finding it difficult to get back into the contest against the big Davis serve. The big man was having it all his way except for when he let a 3-0 lead slip in the third before consolidating to win 6-3, 6-3, 6-4. He now meets Norwegian giant killer Tom Vollan who beat Spain's Ion Andueza 4-6, 6-0, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4.


    • There was less joy for Rob Bowenburg whose great run came to an end at the racquet of 26th seed Morgan Carter. After dropping the first set, things looked on the up for the unseeded Westerner as he blitzed the Eastbourne champ 6-1 in a dynamic second set display. Unfortunately for him, the American immediately turned the tables to crush him in the third set 6-1 and move into the decider with all the momentum. Bowenburg stayed close, but in the end it was not enough as Carter moved into the fourth round 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, 6-4. He meets 21st seed Davis Kennedy who ousted season I semi finalist Zoltán Varga 5-7, 6-1, 7-6(5), 6-4.


    • 31st seed Jarkko Maxum came into his third round match on the back of some impressive victories, but was unable to make an impression against sixth seed József Boros. The Hungarian Boros, the French Open runner up, started like a bolt as he overpowered Maxum with some big groundstrokes in a one-sided first set. After taking the break to compose himself, Maxum had a number of chances to break Boros early in the second but failed to convert. Tied at 5-5, the Hungarian earned the decisive break to edge ahead 6-5 and close out the second set 7-5. Maxum needed a big effort in the third and did enough to claw back from 1-4 down to take the set to a tiebreaker. Unfortunately he couldn't pull off the upset as Boros secured a win 6-1, 7-5, 7-6(5).


    • In a day of one-sided floggings, the match that did deliver was the showdown between sixteenth seed Jojo Mustard and CW Open finalist Oneil Stewart. With two convincing straight sets wins under his belt, Mustard was riding high and despite an early hiccup was square at 5-5 with the Jamaican. But after fighting back from a break down Mustard was thwarted by a horribly timed double fault to effectively hand Stewart the first set on a platter. The early warning sides for Mustard became bright neon as he was trounced in a one-sided second set as the Jamaican sensation got the crowd behind him with some typical athleticism. The one-time Grand Slam finalist took the second set 6-1 and had a look at two break points on the Mustard serve in the second but failed to immediately capitalise. Staring down the barrel of a straight sets exit, Mustard made the task ahead of him look significantly easier as, in the sixth game, he earned a big break of serve as he pushed a backhand winner that just clipped the line. The fourth set was just as close as both players dropped service games at inopportune moments. But again, with the set locked at 5-5, Mustard found the slot with his backhand to take a 6-5 lead. Serving for the set, Mustard breezed ahead to three set points and needed all of them as he serve-and-volleyed his way into a fifth set. The athletic Jamaican was noticeably lagging in the fifth as the calmer looking Mustard began to dictate play. His style is technically quite attractive, and although it lacked the flash of Stewart he cruised to a 5-0 lead. There was a second win for Stewart, though, as he managed to break back twice to be serving at 3-5. But he dropped his serve again - this time to love - as Mustard set up a meeting with Boros 5-7, 1-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 after a massive escape act.


    • Seeded players out: Jarkko Maxum; Oneil Stewart; Zoltán Varga.

    Well well well. Another good result there. A winnable quarter final, but Vollen seems to be in decent form. Hopefully the 5 setter has taken it out of him.

    Good to see Mustardo make it through too. Gutted for Bowenburg though.

    The Championships, Wimbledon II - Gentlemen's Doubles
    GRAND SLAM - Friday (2nd Round) - Wimbledon, United Kingdom - Grass

    • Unseeded pairing Spas Delev and Jefferson Drake had no troubles in their second round match with a straight sets mauling of Diego Hurtado and Paolo Mandonna. The dangerous East CWLand pairing dominated right from the word go and looked a far more complete team than they did against a German pairing earlier in the week as they stormed into the third round 6-2, 6-1, 6-4. They now face their biggest test yet after seventh seeds Tal Cohen and Raz Teper came from two sets down to beat Viorel Iftime and Marius Micu.


    • Seeded players out: Lee Inmin & Qingdong Tsai.
