He fits in neatly with the other 'nearly men' - Tsonga, Ferrer, & Soderling.

And future 'nearlies' - Raonic & Nishikori.

Soderling probably would have won one especially as he was basically a consistent Wawrinka.

Can't really have a go at Berdych. He's just not better than the big four and in another era he may have sneaked a slam.

Williams fell apart after that very close first set. Kudos to Muguruza there. She held her nerve to save her service at 5-4 and then again to win that first set. Wonderful athleticism and power on display. A worthy champ. Couldn't have seen Konta winning that if she'd got past Williams.

Good start to the match by Cilic, have a feeling he might do it today, he has been so good on the grass this year.

Looks like Roger is in a hurry to find out who the new Doctor Who is.

:lol: now that's motivation

Hope Cilic is well enough to at least play out the match.

Didn't want him to win but feel really sad for Cilic. :(

Not the way Federer would have wanted to win either, I'm sure.
