    As ever, Federer is the overwhelming favourite. I thought he played quite well today. In the Women's draw, I have a feeling Jankovic is going to win it. She played really well in the french till she came up against Justine.

    My thoughts exactly-- I could just about cope with neighbours being reduced to one show per day last week due to "royal ascot"; but now having no neighbours for two weeks-- I might have to get a job! :rolleyes:

    Neighbours - a TV show, I presume? Is it the UK's take on Friends? :biggrin:

    It's hardly an Aussie show; viewing figures in the UK are at around 4 million at lunchtime and 3.6 million in the evenings, compared to around 1.2 million daily in Australia!

    Actually, there's a B.Becker playing this year - Benjamin Becker. I was surprised to see his name initially, since it was just shown as B.Becker. A quick visit to the 'most reliable' encyclopaedia on the web clarified that he's a relatively new player unrelated to Boris.

    Thank god, Ljubicic won against Spadea (finally!), although I've got a bad feeling about his upcoming matches, but what the hell, you never know! Also, congratulations to Nika Ozezogic for a nice win against Anna-Lenu Groenefeld! Full support for Ivo Karlovic tomorrow! May Wimbledon stay flooded with Croats!! :devil: :tongue:

    Who saw the nearly-two-hours fifth set between Moya and Henman? I didn't, i.e. not completely...I was able to watch only the last few points.

    I wish I had seen that match, too. Must have been killer.

    I did. Henman must be the most frustating player to watch. He plays some brilliant shots and follows it with absolute shockers.

    IMO, the highlight of that set was a service game where Henman serves aces at breakpoint twice, one on second serve!

    And go Qureshi!!! Next up is Safin.
