Best Reaction. Must see.........
 Sabine Lisicki post-match interview after defeating Serena Williams

Yes - she is sweet.  I like her.  She beat Kanepi today 63,63 & is in the SF.  I'd be pleased to see her lift the trophy.

Sorry to see that Errani/Vinci didn't get through - the number one seeds out in the quarters.   

Carpe Diem

Hopefully Li Na can keep her head calm and win Radwanska. She served for the 1st set but Aga broke back. In the 1st set TB she was serving at 5-4, lost the next two points she served, and Aga converted the SP in her serve. In the 2nd set Li was already a break back but she came back to take the set.

Come on Na!

 :( :( So sad Radwanska is going to win this. Li was the more entertaining player this match by far, hit about double the winners of Aga.

Lisicki vs. Radwanska should be a terrific match.  Two of the quickest players and best fighters on the women's tour, one slightly more aggressive than the other..  I am really looking forward to it.

Hope you'll be able to see the rest of Wimbledon or at least keep touch with the results there.
 
See you in a few days!  :)

That chick is an enigma. She may be Marat Safin.

After losing 1st and 2ns set TBs to the Bryans, Bhupathi/Knowle took the first break of the match and went to 4-3 lead in 3rd. Hopefully they could win this match.

And Bhu/Kno got broken immediately. And in their next service game Bryans already thought the 2nd serve at MP was out and came to net to shake hands. Well, it wasn't, and 3rd set is at 5-5.

Wait a sec. Ferrer and Del Potro on Centre Court, and Djokovic and Berdych on Court 1? Djokovic who's world number 1, a former Wimbledon champion and multiple semi-finalist, and Berdych who's a former Wimbledon finalist - and they're being put on Court 1 in favor of Ferrer and Del Potro?

 :confused1:

They rotate top players and every year each of them plays one match on C1. This year Djokovic played all of his 4 matches on CC. So, it is his turn to play on C1. Murray already played one match on C1. The problem is bad timing. They should've scheduled one of his previous matches on C1, but let him play his QF match on CC. Also, if it rains tomorrow, Nole/Berdych will be in a huge disadvantage, as they might  need to play two days in a row (this is the worst case scenario).

Anyway, nicely done by Brits who made sure that Murray got every single advantage to win the title  :whistle:.

nah Herc, not worried at all. Apparently, if it rains it won't be too bad, they say only 1-3 mm.
