I haven't seen enough (any) of Edmund to know. I was impressed to see him get his first win at such a young age and a lot of people seem to think he has the right attitude and mentality. We'll see.
Robson still has a lot of potential but many areas to work on. Movement most of all but also consistent use of big weapons, second serve and, perhaps hardest of all, mentality. I'll be interested to see how she gets on with McClaghan.
Not sure I'll get to watch any of fed - Nadal just starting, Murray later and have baby and work to fit in as well.
There's always "Today at Wimbledon" at 8pm, if you can get the baby to sleep in time.
I agree about Robson and movement. Her errors are usually down to being off balance when striking the ball, and perhaps going for the lines a little too often. With an extra yard of pace and a greater feel for the percentage game, she could steadily ascend the rankings. I'm not sure she'll ever be a top ten player. (Again, I'd love to be proved wrong.)
Don't mention the "W" word. I'm pretending there's no such thing, for a few hours at least.

Darcis (who?) has just missed his eighth break point against Nadal.

Nobody had heard of Rosol this time last year, either, though I'm confident an upset of that magnitude isn't on the cards...
Although he has broken...

3 set points... 2...
First set to tin tin. He won't have to play as well as rosol to win by the looks of it.
I thought Darcis played a great first set. If I were a betting man like Rafa, I'd still keep my money in my pocket.
He did play well, and if he could maintain that level for two of the next three sets he'd probably win. Unlikely though. I mentioned rosol's level because, despite what Nadal recently said, I thought he was playing very well but the last set from rosol is probably the greatest I've ever seen, don't think anyone has ever been more in the zone.
Muzza's making hard work of it too.
