Yeah, that's a good draw for Murray! None of those players are quite what they used to be, and if he can't beat Federer now he really doesn't deserve the title.

It's here it's here! :toot: :toot: :toot: :toot: :toot: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I'm thinking I'm going to start with Kyrgios on court 2 at 11:30 on my big screen with Broady/Matosevic on my second screen. Going to try and catch the Kyrgios, Broady, Djoko, Sharapova/Konta, Wawrinka, Nishikori and Watson matches today. I bloody love being a student with split-screen when these big events are on :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :wub:

Thought you were there until that last sentence.
Dissapointing.

This time next week I'll be about to be at Centre Court - that's the best I can do!

Kohlschreiber is a potentially very tricky first round match for Djokovic.

He'd probably quite enjoy a test in the first round to be honest. Can't see Kohlschreiber winning a best of 5 match against Djokovic but he's certainly a tough draw. Kyrgios is tearing up his match so far. 5-0 in 14 mins in the first set. Broady was a break down but is on serve again :)

Yay for Heather Watson!

Annoying what they did with the highlights show.

Yes Inverdale made stupid comments, but the person who he made it at forgives him and works with him on ITV, so can everyone else. He didn't ask McEnroe about beards like Clare Balding does. She seems to have very little tennis knowledge yet BBC seem to put her everywhere. I'm presuming she's going to get match of the day soon.

So please BBC, go back to the old format for people who come back from work and you know want to watch tennis.

One set apiece between Brown and Nadal. Rafa just double faulted twice in a row then Brown broke him

Brown is so entertaining to watch. Can be a little frustrating watching him either serve and volley or drop shot almost every point but it's refreshing, still got the edge over Rafa in this match so far.

Amazing match this.

Just wondering, all you lot who got tickets for Wimbledon did you do it via the ballot or via the queue? Been trying for years and nothing :(
