A British tennis enthusiast with no access to sports TV channels but far too many opinions not to have a blog, raves, rages, and reviews the current tennis happenings.

Well it's all kicking off, or hitting off more accurately but that sounds rather violent, and we're through day two of the US Open. Good news/ad news from a British perspective Laura Robson (opponent Morita retired injured) and Elena Baltacha (Opponent Hampton retired injured- what's going on?) are through to the next round, Anne Keothothong and Heather Watson are out (Heather won the first set against Maria Sharapova before losing in three sets). Andy Murray plays someone unrememberable today. And an Irish guy got food poisoning.
All the big names are through apart from Wimbledon champ Kvitova who lost in the first match. But Fed, Djok, Nadal, Wozniaki, Zvonerava, Williams(es) et al are all through to the second round. And Hurrican Irene hasn't affected play one bit.
