    Loving all the upsets by the way, just need Murray to be upset now and it will be awesome.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    I suppose this was going to happen eventually to Federer but it still comes as a shock when it does. Kudos to the bloke who beat him. Roger needs to seriously consider pulling the pin. That record of 36 straight quarters won't be beaten on the men's game you'd reckon.
    Yeah, the mens looks like a final between those two and the womens looks a walkover for Serena. Been fun though the first few days.

    Not sure anyone can be blasé about what will happen from now on, people are falling, and dropping like flies. More witdraws yesterday in a single day then in the History of Grand Slams. Something's a bit wrong here.

    Lovely Laura had better not get injured on Court 2, or there'll be a Pimmy revolt of the upper middle-classes.

    Surely we've learned to not pretend anything is a lock?

    Yeah, had an awesome day. Was on Court 1 and Bennetau v Verdasco was a great curtain raiser. First game was night on 10 minutes and when Verdasco failed to break I thought it might go on for a while, definitely saw it going more than 3 sets anyway. There were some insane points but Verdasco just seemed to step it up part way through the second and started really nailing his ground strokes, was impressive. Bennetau's fall looked nasty too but fair play to him for getting up and carrying on.

    Only bad bit about the morning was the news of Azarenka's walkover meaning I couldn't go and watch Bouchard v Ivanovic on one of the outside courts Saw Eugenie from afar though

    Was so so happy I got to see Murray. Guy was just a class above everything else I saw that day. You really appreciate his ability to return and chase balls down when you see it in the flesh. Just has the ability to get racquet on it and direct it towards the mid-court, somehow. Lu nowhere near disgraced himself though, when he freed himself up he really climbed into some shots and made Murray look like the guy ranked 70 spots below. Difference was on the key points though, that and the fact Lu's start of the second set was a poor carryover from the end of the first. Suppose that's what separates elite sportsmen though, the ability to do it when the pressure is really on.

    Even the women's game was a great spectacle. They do make it look so much harder than the men but there were some outrageous rallies again. Was a bit gutted Jankovic lost. She must be up there in terms of the quietest woman on the tour?

    Watched the last of the Federer match on the mound. It was a really weird atmosphere. You couldn't tell who people wanted to win but I think that's because half of them didn't know themselves. It was certainly like that for me anyway. Suppose I can walk away saying I was there on the day history was made though.

    Caught a cheeky bit of LRobson in the doubles

    What was funny is at the time no one questioned it. It was just accepted that he had long girly hair.

    So why with a poor forecast again today are they not starting matches on centre court a bit earlier as they can close the roof? Surely they should get all the 2nd round matches done before any 3rd round games start. Can see Murray winning his match then them trying to squeeze an unfinished 2nd round game in late on.

    No idea, there's little logic to it, they could have easily squeezed another match in last night. Maybe they're fearful the court juiced up will be even worse.

    Weather is atrocious, just dark and grey with no signs of the light drizzle stopping. Ridiculous that they won't start on Centre Court until 1pm.

    So the hill is now called Robson Rise, she certainly makes me rise when she's playing.
