If Roger HAD to lose, I prefer him lose in doubles rather than singles.... so I'm not too upset (although I was pulling for them).  However, maybe Roger can concentrate solely on the single's event now.

Regardless of how all the 'big 3' played today...the main thing is that they all won.

Seems like Roger may be playing Isner in the next round... :bang-head: :bang-head: :bang-head: :bang-head: :bang-head: :bang-head: I hate that matchup!!!!

Yeah, it sucks that Fedrinka lost, but perhaps this might be a blessing in disguise for Federer. Fingers crossed.

Thanks Conchita. One thing I'm really confused is how is Tsonga going to play vs. Nole and then after that match, play doubles immediately  :confused1:. can he play both matches at the same time?  this is the most retarded scheduling I've ever seen.

Hi Alex, thst's the reason why both Jo-W and Serena doubles matches sre scheduled last, they will play after suitable rest their respective doubles matches, same happens with Kirilenko and the 1st round mixed doubles involving Murray and Haradecka
tomorrow is the  big day, quarterfinals day!, weather must be fine! the winners will play then for the medals and basically almost all the matches will be on Centre Court or C1.

Just watched the Fed-Isner match....
Lucky win by a net-dribbler from Fed, but even if it had gone to a third set, I don't think Isner would have made it...

Anyways, after the match my daughter asked me a question, to which I did not know the answer :
How is the bronze medal winner determined ?

Do the 2 semi-final losers play a match for 3rd place, ot do they both get a bronze medal ?

I bet they play the semi finalists against each.  Just a hunch.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
