Maria is getting her hip worked on. I'd say see earned it.

Maria is a good fighter  :)>>>>

Looks like Mahut got injured! Something supernatural is going on?  :scared:

Maria left the court for treatment. Looks like the hip.

Another w/d: Shvedova OUT before she takes the court with Kvitova

It's Mahut's knee, as it was with Tsonga and always with Nadal. Remember, Mahut just won a tournament Saturday.

Well, Rafa's career was altered forever by the grass at Wimbledon. And here, we've been told for years that grass is easy on the body.

This isn't normal grass for sure. There are reports of it sticking onto the shoes.

Mahut looks pretty good.

Perhaps my guy! Tommy's just cleaning his clock  ;-()

The winner of Lopez(-Simon) is about the only person, man or woman, to be standing after Saturday's finals. File this under Dallas's too much tennis before a major.

Sharapova loses.

Which is worse, me going to Paris and it rains everyday, or Chris going to Wimbledon today and Azarenka w/d and Sharapova falls 4 times before losing.

Chris is definitely more devestated  :(

Stakovsky has so much talent, but not between the ears. Gave Fed a second chance to save BP and Fed does.

Stakovsky 5-6

This is crazy. I think 11 players withdrew due to injuries. The courts are beyond slippery. Players are falling left and right. Something is really wrong. I've never seen anything like this before.

Mahut hits the deck!

Just like Maria, he slips in the worn center of the baseline. That is craziness.

Robredo wins in straight sets.

Bottom line to this match: Mahut just isn't very good. Never was. Even though it may have proved to be too much for him, he was smart to play last week. Got his first ATP tour title.

I haven't seen Federer or Stakhovsk slip yet...Finger's crossed!  But Roger isn't really playing well consistently in this match.  Stakhovsk is playing more S&V.

One of Kubot, Robert, Paire, Mannarino, or Brown will reach their first Wimbledon QF  :rofl_2:

well, maybe that's a good thing. we need some 'fresh blood'.

Stephens def. Petkovic.  She seems to be a such a nice girl. Fed looks shaky to me.
