I enjoyed what I saw of the Hewitt vs. Brown match.
Lu looked a bit dangerous for the first five games, but there will be no upset today...

If somebody can best that pesky Djokovic fella in the next nine days, we can start to get excited.
I'm guessing world #1 Djokovic won't be playing on court #2. (For the record I wouldn't wish injury on any player.)
I think the Fed Express could be in a bit of trouble here too!
This is very interesting with that break. Can he hold for the set?

Who the hell is Stakhovsky????
It's good to see so much "old school" Serve/Vollley.....or, according to Boris - "Serve/Whalley."

This could turn into the best day Muzza's ever had at Wimbledon. I can't remember a more dramatic first week.
Of course if all the big names go out, it could get dull later on.
If the quality of tennis is high I'm not really fussed. I know most of the players, and those I don't I'll get to know through the 'stories' at Wimbledon, ie beating the big players. As Cno says, it's nice to see a bit of s&v, I'd like to see how Murray would cope with this coming at him. Stakhovski's serve is superb tho and his ground stroke style seems to be modelled on fed.
Oo oo oo oo
