    Henin another match point, this time on serve in the tie break.

    If she ****s this up I'm leaving.

    Reckon she deserves a bit of leeway considering it's just her second tournament back from a lengthy break/retirement tbh.

    Well, Henin won it eventually... Good win over a tough opponent.

    Still pretty early on in her comeback, but... all those match points...

    Henin's match against Dementieva was superb - I bet the fans that purchased tickets for the second round tonight on centre court will be more than satisfied that they got their money's worth! Looks like a cracker between Del Potro and Blake as well.

    IMO Del Potro vs. Blake should have been the first match up, with Henin and Dementieva to follow.

    I'll eat my words if Tomic makes this a good match, but how awesome would Rod Laver have been with that?

    How the hell do you get broken twice by Tomik? He stands further back than Söderling ffs...

    Good length tho.

    Haha, broken again. Called this.

    2-1 up! He's got this

    EDIT: For those watching (I'm not, hour behind etc. etc.) how the hell is Tomic winning? Following live, stats say he's got half as many winners, and only about 5/6 less unforced errors, yet is up 2 sets to one. Just running cilic all over?
