Firstly, sorry no update yesterday, I accidentally posted it to my other blog. No doubt throwing my legions of fans into confusion...but its all sorted out now.
On to today:
RAIN STOPPED PLAY
but dont worry because the BBC showed three repeats of the Andy Murray vs Richard Gasquet match, in case you missed it the first time.
17hrs later when play resumed last years winner Svetlana Kusnetsova played german Petkovic. Pet should have won in two sets, with four match point chances, but on he brink of an upset the nerves got to her. From 5-3 up in the second set she lost 9 of the next 10 games. She did break back in the third set to 4-5 and saved numerous match points against her, except the last naturally. Alas. She really should have won.
Also saw Colombian Falla put up quite the old fight against Mr Federer, and he really should have won the first set but didnt, and fell away to a straight sets loss.
And a buch of brits lost in doubles, including my sweet Murray, J. Sad.
