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

    • Eighth seed Jefferson Drake is through to the round of 16 after a comprehensive win over Portugal's Valter Cordiero. One of the pre-tournament roughies, Drake has watched on as many high seeds fell in the top half and was clearly intent on not falling into the trap of underestimating a lower ranked opponent. Cordiero who racked up some impressive wins in his first two rounds, but was clearly out of his depth early against one of the best grass courters in tennis. Drake found Cordiero's range early and never relented in a two-hour clinic as he moved into the fourth round 6-0, 6-2, 6-3 without any troubles. He now plays Spaniard Javier Villaneuva who advanced to his second straight fourth round in Grand Slams after an upset 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 win over France's Patrick Pascaul.


    • After a career-best win on Thursday, East CWLand qualifier Ishan Narang has come crashing down with a straight sets mauling at the hands of Christopher Durand. In a match he was widely expected to have a very good chance in, Narang fluffed a perfect opportunity to move into the round of 16 as he was trounced early by the Frenchman. The tall Indian-born player struggled with a disappointing inability to get first serves in, and only started to play good tennis when it was too late. Durand, ranked No. 94 in the world, too good in the end 6-0, 6-3, 7-5. He now meets third seed Radek Špidlá who beat Ivars Emsis 6-0, 6-1, 6-4.


    • Finally, fifth seed Sven Oxenstierna is still in the hunt for a quarter final showing after a four-set win over Tal Cohen of Israel. The one-time Grand Slam finalist won out a tight first set, but after taking the second 6-1 he looked set to breeze into the round of 16. The Israeli 28th seed, though, had other ideas as he changed up his style to outhit Oxenstierna in the third set and massacre him 6-1. With his back-to-the-wall, Oxenstierna recovered well to significantly reign in Cohen's hitting ability and snatched a late break to secure a 7-5, 6-1, 1-6, 7-5 win. He now meets fifteenth seed Diego Hurtado after the Colombian came from two sets down to disappoint the nation by defeating the last British player left in the draw Henry Charles.


    • Seeded players out: David Champion; Henry Charles; Tal Cohen; Patrick Pascaul; Zhijun Sun.

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

    • For the second match running, top seeds Heath Davis and Jojo Mustard were untroubled in doubles competition after running riot in a straight sets mauling of Indian duo Ashim and Seby Kumar. The Kumars took home the title in Halle a fortnight ago, but produced an insipid display against the West CWLand top seeds who were on fire right throughout the contest. It took two-and-a-half sets of tennis before the Indian pairing held serve having broken early in the first as they lacked the firepower and desire to match it with the world's top pairing. The two-time Grand Slam champs had little trouble in dispatching the duo en route to a 6-1, 6-0, 6-1 win. They face an actual task next after Gai Kai and Lu Xun yesterday advanced to the third round with a 7-6(4), 6-3, 6-0 win over Sergio Joaquin and Javier Villaneuva.


    • Wildcard entrants Marcuss Deane and Oscar Highsmith impressed in their second straight sets win in a row; defeating Belgian tenth seeds Mark Harmel and Yves Parmentier. The Belgian pairing came through the first round confidently, but were met with a difficult task early as the British-born team played solid tennis. Harmel had a set point on his serve but failed to convert; allowing the wildcards to steal the first set 9-7 in a tiebreaker. The panic button was being slammed down by the Belgians in the second as Highsmith made a tremendous smash reaching from back over his head to set up a 5-2 lead before Deane served the set out with some tricky placement. The Belgians took a break lead twice in the third, but were chased down by the dogged wildcards who booked a shock third round berth 7-6(7), 6-2, 7-5. They now play fifth seeds Andrej Konc and Evgeny Maximov after they beat Gunther Heug and Pascal Schmidt in four sets.


    • Also through were eighth seeds Rob Bowenburg and Jarkko Maxum after an impressive four set win over Almen Benaglio and Becker Haas. The pairing had only just escaped with a victory in their first round match earlier in the week, and despite taking the first set in a scrappy encounter they started slowly. The German-Swiss duo, singles stars for the most part, were playing the better tennis and after taking the second set 6-3 could count themselves unlucky to not be two sets up. Finally the team that performed so well at Roland Garros lifted; caning the makeshift pairing to love in the third set and, with a great passing shot from Bowenburg, moving ahead 3-0 in the fourth. Benaglio snatched a break back with a lob over an out-of-position Maxum but they could not avoid defeat as the eighth seeds advanced 7-5, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3. They now play Carlo Amato and Roel Hervelle who beat ninth seeds Ion Andueza and Sanchez Emelio.


    • Finally, third seeds Hayden and Ross Onwye got a measure of revenge for their Roland Garros exit by defeating Brett Read and Scotland Rivers in straight sets. The Moroccan brothers were stunned by Read and Björn Donaldson in straight sets in the second round at Paris, but half-avenged that defeat against Read with a comprehensive win. The West CWLanders were never in the hunt as they collapsed under the strain on a truly cohesive pairing; the Onwyes cruising into the third round 6-3, 6-1, 6-2.


    • Seeded players out: Ion Andueza & Sanchez Emelio; Wayne Boyd & Morton Blundell; Mark Harmel & Yves Parmentier.

    The Championships, Wimbledon II - Gentlemen's Singles
    GRAND SLAM - Sunday (Rest Day) - Wimbledon, United Kingdom - Grass

    With both the singles and the doubles teams taking a well-earned rest, we'll quickly preview Monday's eight fourth round showdowns.

    Tom Vollan NOR vs. 23-Heath Davis FRC
    Talk about a fourth round matchup no one expected. Davis has been absolute dynamite this week, though he's been monstering players of less ability than him for sure. He's yet to drop a set, and meets a player who has dropped at least one in each of his three matches so far. The plus for the Norwegian is that he holds a victory over the World No. 1, but on the back of a pretty taxing showdown with Ion Andueza he might find it tough. The weekend break will help him, and it will clearly be a question of who serves best in the battle of the big men. Prediction: Davis in four. Markets: Davis $1.50, Vollan $2.46.

    16-Jojo Mustard FRC vs. 6-József Boros HUN
    József Boros continues to perform admirably on the grass after finally producing a pretty good display in the third round against Jarkko Maxum after a scratchy win in the second round against Gunther Heug. Mustard, meanwhile, was forced to come from two sets down to oust nineteenth seed Oneil Stewart in a gutsy performance and will no doubt takes bundles of confidence from that win. Boros, though, is an all-courter - last year he beat the likes of Morgan Carter and Henry Charles before succumbing to Jason Hall in the quarter finals, and he has had a lot more time to recover than Mustard who also competes in the doubles. That could be decisive. Prediction: Boros in five. Markets: Boros $1.63, Mustard $2.18.

    4-Darcy Cowan USA vs. 10-Dwayne Murdoch USA
    The defending champion has dropped just one set this week, and finally put his best foot forward with a 6-0, 6-0, 6-3 mauling of British journeyman Roger Warren in the third round. Now he faces his biggest task yet - Dwayne Murdoch is a serial pest in Grand Slams and has tasted the quarter finals already having lost to Radek Spidla last season. The two are very different players - Murdoch loves the baseline and plays a more versatile game while Cowan can at times rely too heavily on his big serve. That being said, he's 10-0 at Wimbledon and has really started to click into gear. Murdoch starts as an outsider and probably deserves to as Cowan should edge this one in four sets. Prediction: Cowan in four. Markets: Cowan $1.59, Murdoch $2.26.

    21-Davis Kennedy CAN vs. 26-Morgan Carter USA
    It was one of the upsets of the third round, but Canadian 21st seed Davis Kennedy was ultimately too good for Season I semi finalist Zoltán Varga. After a horrendous run with injuries this season, this is the Kennedy we are familiar with and in Carter he has a great chance to make the quarters. Carter produced some solid tennis to oust Rob Bowenburg and is riding high after taking the Eastbourne title. Kennedy came through his first real test unscathed, but we still wonder what the Canadian's fitness is like as we move into the second week. As a result, we go with safety first. Prediction: Carter in four. Markets: Carter $1.83, Kennedy $1.89.

    8-Jefferson Drake CDR vs. Javier Villaneuva ESP
    For the second Slam running, Villaneuva finds himself in the round of 16 against all odds. His 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 mauling of Patrick Pascaul stunned pundits, and he's only dropped the one set this week - the first against Carlo Amato. Drake has also dropped the one set, but came through a tight second round meeting to bookend his first week with big victories. You suspect he's only just warming up, though he plays a similar style to Pascaul. If Villaneuva wants to win, he needs to take advantage of Drake's notoriously slow starts. I suspect he can, but I don't think he will. Prediction: Drake in three. Markets: Drake $1.35, Villaneuva $3.02.

    Christopher Durand FRA vs. 3-Radek Špidlá CZE

    Radek Špidlá was almost unbackable to win last year's Wimbledon yet somehow found a way to lose it. He's gone through the first week without dropping a set and, despite an injury concern leading into Wimbledon, is on the second line of betting behind Cowan. Durand will no doubt benefit from this week in financial terms, but his scalps look unimpressive - Bre, Day and Narang are hardly on the same level as Špidlá on grass. Prediction: Špidlá in three. Markets: Špidlá $1.04, Durand $9.50.

    5-Sven Oxenstierna FRC vs. 15-Diego Hurtado COL
    Diego Hurtado's name is basically mud here at the All England Club after the Colombian came back from the dead to oust Henry Charles in five sets. He's dropped at least one set in all his matches so far, but has clearly improved on grass since his Season I loss to Charles in the second round (4-6, 0-6, 6-3, 1-6). The Colombian faces another player who isn't particularly comfortable on grass; The Ox won Halle impressively, but was beaten in the opening round at Rosmalen. His first week was fairly uninspiring with no convincing victories. There could be an upset brewing. Prediction: Hurtado in five. Markets: Oxenstierna $1.72, Hurtado $2.04.

    12-Rick Henson USA vs. 2-Daniel Páez Blanco ESP
    There aren't really many matches to look forward to as much as this one as we finally put to the test Blanco's grass ability against Henson's fitness. Henson has never really found his feet on the PTA Tour after a couple of bad injuries, but showed great composure to clinically dispose of the inform Chinese player Zhijun Sun on Saturday (6-4, 6-1, 6-2). Blanco also had a straight sets win against David Champion (7-6(3), 7-5, 6-0) and it was clearly his best performance after two scratchy wins over qualifiers. This is Henson's real chance, and on grass he won't blow it. Prediction: Henson in four. Markets: Henson $1.78, Blanco $1.90.

    PREDICTED QUARTERFINALS
    DAVIS vs. BOROS
    COWAN vs. CARTER
    DRAKE vs. SPIDLA
    HURTADO vs. HENSON

    Nah look a Colombian winning on grass? That's less realistic than people writing insightful responses to computer-generated tennis results.

    The Championships, Wimbledon II - Gentlemen's Singles
    GRAND SLAM - Monday (Fourth Round) - Wimbledon, United Kingdom - Grass

    • Sixteenth seed Jojo Mustard has suffered one of the most disappointing losses of his season after being bundled out in a humiliating straight sets loss to József Boros. The Hungarian sixth seed was in decent enough form coming into the match, but few expected him to have it quite so easy as Mustard showed little fight or interest in his quick defeat. The rot set in at 2-2 in the first as Mustard double faulted twice in a row to hand the Hungarian an early break. From there, Boros racked up sixteen of the next nineteen games as a frustrated Mustard effectively threw in the towel. For the second year running, Boros wins through to a quarter final after a 6-3, 6-1, 6-1 win.


    • He will play 23rd seed Heath Davis who continued his streak of straight set wins against Tom Vollan. The Norwegian giant killer's run came to an abrupt end as Davis, another big man, was firing. In perhaps his best win of the week, the big West CWLander bolted out of the gates and then proceeded to keep his quality tennis up even in the face of renewed opposition from Vollan. The Norwegian had a break lead in the second set, and also a set point in the third; but he failed to take advantage of either and was sent packing 2-6, 4-6, 5-7. Davis' win sets up a quarterfinal showdown with Boros; the first in his Grand Slam career.


    • Also into the quarter finals is eighth seed Jefferson Drake after the East CWLander accounted for unseeded Spaniard Javier Villaneuva. A runner up at Queens, Drake's form in the first week of Wimbledon was solid but here he started sluggishly as he was broken in the first game. Despite that, he quickly got himself into the match and avoided a typical first set collapse as he created numerous chances on the Spaniard's serve to take the first set 7-5. Villaneuva, who had looked so explosive in his three other matches, clearly struggled with Drake's power and top spin as he was forced behind the baseline and was not able to adapt well enough. Drake was clinical on serve, and rounded out a dominant victory 7-5, 6-2, 6-3. He now meets World No. 3 Radek Špidlá who continued his magnificent run by accounting for unseeded Frenchman Christopher Durand 7-5, 6-4, 7-5.


    • Fifth seed Sven Oxenstierna made it three from four with a straight sets win over Diego Hurtado. In easily his best performance of the tournament so far, Oxenstierna turned up the heat on the Colombian 15th seed as he sent him packing with a fine performance. Securing early breaks in the first two sets, Oxenstierna did just enough to keep the Colombian clear as he looked composed with accurate serving. There were some jitters in the third, but Oxenstierna managed to come from a break down twice to kill off the Colombian's spirited charge 6-4, 6-3, 7-6(1). Oddly enough, he has a massive opportunity to make the semi finals as he faces second seed Daniel Páez Blanco. The Spaniard came from a set down to end Rick Henson's run 6-4, 6-7(4), 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in one of the best matches of the day.


    • By far the biggest upset of the day, though, was the shock exit of defending champion Darcy Cowan. Blowing the tournament open in the process, tenth seed Dwayne Murdoch routined the American ace in a crushing victory as the tournament favourite was sent packing in a humiliating 1-6, 4-6, 2-6 loss. Murdoch's win sets up an intriguing quarterfinal meeting with Davis Kennedy after the Canadian beat Morgan Carter 7-6(0), 5-7, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.


    • Seeded players out: Morgan Carter; Darcy Cowan; Rick Henson; Diego Hurtado; Jojo Mustard.

    Not good enough from Vollan & Mustard.

    Drake-Shpidla is the match-up from hell.

    (while Ox-Páez is the match-up of bulls. Moo.)

    Poo to be out, but congrats to doubles partner Davis who is playing awesome at the moment. Would love to see him lift both singles and doubles trophies. Unfortunate way to go out in what could possibly be Mustard's last singles match.

    Gutted for Mustardo, and the tests really start here. I've had a pretty damn easy route to the quarters - can I lift my game up another couple of notches for Boros?

    Hopefully a couple CWLanders can make it to the semis... Preferably all 3 remaining!

    The Championships, Wimbledon II - Gentlemen's Doubles
    GRAND SLAM - Tuesday (Third Round) - Wimbledon, United Kingdom - Grass

    • Unseeded Easterners Spas Delev and Jefferson Drake were unable to survive an epic five-set affair with seventh seeds Tal Cohen and Raz Teper as they fell 3-6 in the fifth. In just their second tournament together, the two played fine tennis against a Grand Slam finalist pairing, and after claiming the fourth set 7-5 they looked in a fine spot. But the cohesive Israeli pairing worked well together; and having taken the third set 6-2 recaptured that form in the fifth to break twice early. There was a late fightback from the Easterners, but it wasn't enough as Cohen and Teper moved into the quarters against Hugh James and Ralph Robinson 4-6, 7-5, 6-2, 5-7, 6-3.


    • Eighth seeds Rob Bowenburg and Jarkko Maxum had a decidedly easier time as they tore through Carlo Amato and Roel Hervelle. After a couple of difficult matches last week, the Trans-CWLand team started like a bolt as they claimed the first set 6-0. Amato and Hervelle had been involved in five-set affairs in both of their matches at Wimbledon, but were unable to get a run on against Bowenburg and Maxum who combined brilliantly. After The Lob sealed the second set with a smash at the net, Amato and Hervelle stuck close in the third at 3-3. But they were blown away from there; the eighth seeds through 6-0, 6-4, 6-3.


    • For the second time in as many Grand Slams, they will meet Heath Davis and Jojo Mustard after the top seeds beat thirteenth seeds Gai Kai and Lu Xun. After two absolute walkovers in their first two matches, Davis and Mustard had a much harder task against the Chinese duo who, after dropping the first set after having three set points, took the second 6-4. After that, though, it was more of the same for the top seeds as they continually broke the Asian duo and ran away with the match 7-6(2), 4-6, 6-0, 6-2. The last time the top seeds met Bowenburg and Maxum was in the semis at Roland Garros; winning in three sets.


    • In worse news, the brave run of Marcuss Deane and Oscar Highsmith came to an abrupt end as they were smashed by Andrej Konc and Evgeny Maximov. The wildcard duo hadn't dropped a set all tournament, but were blown away by the fifth seeds who moved into the quarter finals for the second Grand Slam running 6-2, 6-2, 6-1. They play third seeds Hayden Onwye and Ross Onwye.


    • Seeded players out: Ivars Emsis & Alexey Yarkin; Gai Kai & Lu Xun; János Varga & Zoltán Varga.

    The Championships, Wimbledon II - Gentlemen's Singles
    GRAND SLAM - Wednesday (Quarterfinals) - Wimbledon, United Kingdom - Grass

    • After what has been one of the least entertaining draws in Grand Slams, third seed Radek Špidlá and eighth seed Jefferson Drake have completed what was by far the match of the tournament. Two of the most imposing grass courters left in the draw, it was little surprise that the match was a tight one as last year's finalist Špidlá started early in racking up the aces to frustrate Drake. But Drake was also fantastic on serve, and at 5-5 guessed right three times to set up two break points. He converted the one he needed, and exposed Špidlá's return game with some fantastic serve and volley to take the set 7-5. The match continued along the same lines as clutch serving from both players removed them from tricky situations. While both held nearly every time they served, there were few easy games for either player as both had more than their share of break point chances. But it was Špidlá's clear advantage on serve that served him well in the tiebreakers as the big man managed to claim the second set 7-0 in the breaker and then the third 7-3 to set up a set advantage.

    If the Czech star thought he was on the cusp of victory he was wrong as the World No. 8 earned just his second break of the match immediately in the fourth set. From there he played a stunning set of tennis as Špidlá almost resigned himself to a deciding fifth. Dropping it 1-6, a fool would have written the Season I finalist off as he came back more determined than ever and stuck close to the eighth seed. Serving second, Drake earned his third break of the match as late as 8-8, but when given the chance to serve out the match the Czech star earned his first break of the match. But that was it for Špidlá who could not muster another break point as Drake served the match out with a great backhand down the line 7-5, 6-7(0), 6-7(3), 6-1, 12-10 to advance to a maiden Grand Slam semi final.
    • There he will meet World No. 2 Daniel Páez Blanco who moved a step closer to his first grass court final with a dominant win over Sven Oxenstierna. In a rematch of their Season I French Open final, many expected Oxenstierna to get the better of the Spaniard who has never really looked all that flash on grass. Unfortunately for The Ox, though, it was not to be as he met a grizzly end at the racquet of the Spaniard in straight sets. In a pretty drab affair, both players camped themselves on the baseline and it was Blanco who was clearly the more comfortably despite the foreign surface. Oxenstierna held a double break lead in the second set, but fluffed it completely and went down in the tiebreaker 1-7. The confidence and versatility he showed in his fourth round match disappeared against Blanco's top spin as he put up the white flag in the third in a 2-6, 6-7(1), 0-6 defeat.


    • The first semi final will ensure at least one player will make their Grand Slam final debut after Heath Davis booked a showdown with tenth seed Dwayne Murdoch. The 23rd seed snared the biggest win of his career against World No. 5 József Boros as he came from a set down to send the Hungarian packing in four sets. In a tight first set, Davis missed a golden chance to take an early lead after letting a 5-1 lead inexplicably slip; dropping the set in a tiebreaker 7-4. Despite dropping his first set for the tournament, he improved quickly and offered more power and variety than Boros who relied heavily on the slice and unforced errors from Davis. After taking the next two, Davis met a Hungarian who was happy to mix it up a bit more with some aggression. But after saving two break points at 3-3, he then took what would be a decisive break of serve to charge into the semi finals 6-7(4), 6-3, 6-2, 6-3. There he will play tenth seed Murdoch after the American ousted Davis Kennedy the 21st seed 7-6(1), 6-4, 7-6(3).


    • Seeded players out: József Boros; Davis Kennedy; Sven Oxenstierna; Radek Špidlá.

    This is what the new rankings would look like if everyone was to achieve the same points (first number in brackets is if active player makes the final; second is if they win). It is also worth bearing in mind this is only for the top 37 before the week - some will probably drop out (i.e. Vollan) and others will come in.
