    Eh, I watch for the tennis. I'd much rather a personality vacuum, than someone whose personality is a barrier to me enjoying the match.

    I find Kygrios highly entertaining. He's the Balotelli of tennis. A bit of a nob, sure, but not as evil as many seem to think.

    Tomic, however. Feel pretty bad for the guy. He's clearly in a bad place and needs some support.

    It's weird watching Andy Murray play doubles on a half empty outside court. Big fan of the guy but how the mighty have fallen.

    I think it's folks being a bit snobby about doubles. I imagine his match with Serena will have a few more, mind.

    Am I being harsh when it should be the bare minimum for a pro tennis player not to double-fault? Hubert has done so twice already…

    You're absolutely right. You are being slightly harsh. :)

    Considering the injuries I dare say he is just happy to be on the court but I don't think many of the centre count crowd are really fans of any player. Just like being able to say they went to centre court

    Maybe everyone should do the underarm on second.

    It's the same with football. I always feel like a professional footballer should be able to hit the top corner with a penalty every single time.

    Fed vs Rafa at Wimbledon for the first time since THAT final. Looking forward to it. Although Nadal looks like he's playing better tennis right now.

    Yeah, loved that match. Quality tennis from two people who respect each other and the game.

    It's just a shame that other players can't seem to step up to this level. As much as I like Nadal and (especially) Federer, it would be nice to see someone in the next generation come through and really challenge them on a regular basis.

    Don't think I've ever seen Serena taken apart like this.

    She just wasn't timing the ball well. Nice payday for one hours work.

    Halep was in the zone, though. Always getting the ball back in play like that was insane.

    Halep was incredible. Some of the shots that should've just been keeping her in the game, somehow got turned into outright winners. Ridiculous.

    @Tomo
    Absolutely. Post match interview, she was brilliant as well. Good for her.

    Damn, it's been a pretty tight match so far.

    Federer should have had that first set.

    Maybe, but Federer made mistakes. I'm not the biggest fan of Djokovic, but he's pretty good on the unforced errors count.

    These two are playing so well on serve it's almost boring. Fair play to them, but it's lacking the tension of the Nadal match so far.

    Also, I'm not the biggest fan of Federer, but he's astonishing really. 37 and he's in contention for another Slam. And looking strong to boot. His ability to adapt is unmatched.
