Dimitrov/Nielsen had two MPs against Benneteau/Zimonjic in the 5th set but lost the match. Sad as I would've liked to see Frederik do well after his last year's title with Jonny Marray.

Two kids came to congratulate Zimonjic after the match, I guess they were his own kids. If so, then great that his kids were seeing their father winning.

God like performance from Djokovic. He completely destroyed Chardy.

They are moving Serena to CC. It was just announced. 

Djokovic is on his way to a title.

I still have Serena left (I think her next match will be a little tough but I hope she comes through)
I like Haas too... Hope he can do something in his next match!  Go Tommy!

The rest... I'm just watching.  Sloan is through but she hasn't really impressed me at all.  On the men's side, it still looks like a Murray/Novak final but we will see.

Djokovic is on his way to a title.
38 winners to 3 UE (one was DF) ... returning like a maniac. crazy stuff. after first 2 sets, he had zero UE. Chardy is not a nobody, he is ranked #25, and has a very powerful serve btw.

Anyway I don't want to jinx him, still lots of tennis to be played. Haas will be a first serious challenge.

Djokovic looked very good.
Some strange names hanging around so late in the toutnament.

Serena won her match 6:2 6:0. The question here is not her winning Wimbledon ... it's how many games she will lose in the final.

I saw the last two sets, it was some very good tennis by Nole.
 
 
In the meantime I also saw DelPo.
He slipped and hyperextended his left leg but was able to play on.
 
I hope it doesn't effect him later, sometimes those kind of troubles show up the next day.

Nole played very well today but Chardy is hardly the player to be measured against on grass.
You are everything I am not.

Serena is overrated. Everyone says she is so much better than the rest of the field. She is NOT. In fact, players like Li Na, Kvitova, and others still in the draw are better than Serena on the ground. One day, Serena will have a poor serving day...and GAME OVER!  :)>>>>

Matches for Djokovic will be harder from now swish,,your not going with Potty then :whistle: Berdych & Tomic match Nole has to face the winner if he gets past Haas,& i think he will (sorry lug) I've a feeling Potty might be waiting in the SF this time,that could be interesting.With the seeds that have gone this year,it's looking like anyone could win this,but i'm sticking with one of the top 2 seeds to win Wimby over all.

Just found out Potty's knee is not good,his movement was not @ his best after his last match.I hope the rest will have helped his movement.

As I expected, Melzer is very danger player for Jerzy. Because Jerzy's backhand weakness will give a lot of chance for Melzer to unleash his forehand.
