Tomic retired from doubles, hamstring.

Threat for singles, no?

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.

FAIL

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

MP Larcher de Brito.

Come on stop moaning about the grass.Lleyton Hewitt lost & was asked is it any different & he said no,he also said it's always abit lush the first few days.Some tennis players are just aving a mone as thay are out.

The dude's like Stepanek. Tons of talent but no big weapon and questionable between the ears.


Oh, it's the grass alright, sid. The grass is awful. Today is historic. Don't bother trying to deny it.

ESPN just played a montage of players falling. Most (not all) simply don't know how to play on grass. Why should they? They play between 0-6 matches on grass before Wimbledon. They're trying to slide like the do on hardcourts extending their "anchor leg." Gotta do like the Maestro and take baby steps.

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.
It will be interesting to see who is the last man left standing.

I really like Stakhovski play. What was that match he played at the USO a couple years ago, it was epic, and some amazing tennis.

Nothing wrong with putting constant pressure on your opponent. Even if it's in today's game and against arguably the greatest ever at Wimbledon.

5-5, 1-1 sets

2 breakpoints for Stakhovski @ 1-1, 5-5 in the third.

Wow, Federer broken. Perhaps we are in for another upset!

Stakhovsky up 2-1 sets on Fed.

Totally forgot, Fed struggled against another S&Ver last year. Bennetteau took him the distance.

Very interesting, Dallas. That's really odd. Why do you think that is?
