    I watched Jelena Dokic play last night, and it was kind of sad to see how badly she has fallen apart. Her body language was horrific, its as if she'd lost the match 4 times over before it started.

    Goran was good, he's looming dangerously on his side of the draw. Paradon Scrichapan didn't really click, he's not a bad player but it didn't go for him last night, Ivo Karlovic's height and massive first serve mean he looks like someone capable of a big upset of 2 again this year.

    As for favorite, I can't go past Federer - I don't think Roddick has the stomach for a tournament like this.

    Oh no both Kirilenko and Paradorn lost in the first round itself . The matches today that i hope to get to see are

    Mauresmo Vs Kostanic - I think Jelena could trouble Amelie if she brings her A game and with luck cause an upset too

    Daniela Vs Samantha - I'm always nervous when Dani plays

    Canas Vs Todd Martin - Could be a ripper

    Novak Vs Malisse - " ""

    Tammy Vs Groenefeld - Anna is a talented young player and will definately get to see it as Star always shows matches involving asian players

    Harkleroad Vs Callens - Close one

    But they only show mainly Centre Court matches involving top players which almost always end up being one sided matches

    henman through, but a bit tougher than he would have hoped, Malisse thrrough in 3 easy sets while Haas is getting flogged. 2-6 2-6 5-4 at the moment. its a shame cause he has a favourable draw and could have really improved his ranking this fortnight....

    Henman is in a bit of trouble....down one set to love and 4-4 in the second. This 'other' guy is playing good tennis...

    Henman won mate, this is a replay Channel 9 are showing, a bloody disgrace if you ask me....

    Haas has just clinched the 3rd set in a tie break 10-8, he can put his US open preperations temporarily on hold, for at least 1 more set...

    haha, i suspect the match they show after this could be live, maybe they will do a switch to the roddick match which has just started (hes up 3-1 first set) or maybe ven the end of the coria match at some stage.....
    I think Fox are showing Schuettler and Soderling like right now........

    pete sampras is my fav! but ever since he stopped playing, i kinda stopped following tennis. right now i still like agassi but then he's getting on. Ivanisivic won wimbledon in 2001, that was awesome. hope he repeats it this year.

    I want Tim Henman to win but I am afraid If I start following his game, He will lose. Today also he was 4-6, 1-3 when I stopped watching. Later I heard he won. I thanked myself for switching off my TV unlike French Open where I waited too long.

    haha flashback wimbledon 2001...Henman Vs Ivanisivic. Henman leading in the match and is like 2 games away from victory when rain forces play to be continued the next day. Ivanisivic beats Henman in 5 sets, goes to the finals and beats rafter to win the championship. simply awesome!

    Henman didn't look to good, if he wants to make it further in the tournament he needs a big improvement. Phillipoussis got better with every point he played. Still rusty, and won't want to be as rusty against Verkerk, but if he can get past him, he should make it to the QFs, where hopefully his game will be finetuned.

    Hewitt & Federer again tonight, hopefully both make it through (which they should).

    And Simon...Haas is still in with a chance down 2 sets to 1 and leading 3-2 in the fourth set.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    henman, in his best form and with all the crowd support that he commands here still wouldn't be able to get past federer, roddick, hewitt or philippousis in full flow. so, unless any or all of these players are miserably out of form or are upset before he gets to face them(and it is a possibility!), i can't see tim winning wimbledon.
