The 2008 and 2010 Gentlemen’s Singles Champion, Rafael Nadal has withdrawn with a wrist injury.
A wrist injury, indeed. Who do you reckon will win the Gentleman’s Singles Geoffrey, is Novak a gimme?
The standard is so bad and Djokovic is so far ahead of the rest, its difficult to make a case for anyone else.
He’s won it three times but never looks convincing on grass. He’s been brought to five sets by good grass players Kevin Anderson and Martin Cilic last two years. I reckon with the injury plagued year he’s had, Federer will depart early. Nick the Greek if his head is anyway right could be a threat.
Hopefully del Potro can put a run together at Wimbledon. He is playing well in the stuttgart open at the moment. He should make the final
Shock in stuttgart. Theim has beaten Federer in the semi final. Del Potro a set down in the other semi 2-2 in the second.
Federer has played so little this year, I’m not that surprised. Don’t see him doing anything at Wimledon. How did Thiem look on the grass? He’s made big advances generally this year.
I didn’t see the match. Am only in the door and seen the result. It was close enough from the score 3-6, 6-7, 4-6 to Theim. The tie break was 9-7 to Theim. I think Theim is going to be the one that will be the one to beat in the next few years.
Draw made today. Federer is on Djokovic’s side of the draw, albeit I strongly suspect Federer will fall early.
The next big things in the gentlemen’s and ladies games, Dominic Thiem and Miss Muguruza both beaten in straight sets in Round 2 today.
Good win for the dangerous unseeded floater Baby Fed over Gilles Simon. He should account for Steve Johnson in Round 3 to set up a meeting with Big Fed in Round 4.
Big game tomorrow del Potro vs wawrinka.
Del Potro wins in 4.
Great to see the big man back again. Unfortunately he is due to play again tomorrow hopefully he recovers quickly from this match.
Djokovic two sets down to Sam Querry overnight. He was in a similar position to Kevin Anderson last year and turned it around. Djokovic has such a poor game on grass its hard to credit he’s won in three times.
Field tennis is shit mate.
Djokovic has a great clay game and only managed to win Roland Garros once yet despite not being great on field tennis he is a three time winner.
looking like a few showers again here in SW19
Djokovic has arrived at the right time with the decline in both Federer and Nadal.
Djokovic breaks at the start of the third set to take a 2-0 lead. Looks the overnight break has saved his bacon.

Rain may have saved querry
Novak on the brink.
