What a day! What a match! I'm exhausted and its only day 1.

It was exciting and edge of your seat time this afternoon but the Nadal? Darcis match was fantastic. Yes, Rafa's knee was playing up, and I feel we may not see him at Wimbledon next year, but Darcis played a blinder.

I'm off now to put some porridge oats in a muslin bag and have a nice soak in soft water

I can't believe it. Nadal out in round one. All that fuss about the draw for nothing.

Well, none of the top seeds playing yesterday ( except Federer) sailed through did they? I watched the Hewitt match and that was nail biting too. My mum always used to like seeing the top players have hard matches as openers; she reckoned it sharpened up. She also liked to see the underdog give them a shock.
I have to go to town this morning to sort out my bus pass. Hope to get back for an afternoon in front of the TV. This is not getting my knitting done is it? And as for my tapestry... won't see that again in the next fortnight

Much calmer day at SW19...
 
Great result for Laura but sorry to see Heather go out.
I wonder if she's still feeling the effects of the illness.
 
Laura's got Andy Murray's old coach hasn't she...
Hope she goes on this year to at least third round.

I really enjoyed Laura's match, but felt for Heather. She's still not 100% fit. There again, a couple of the top players have had to give up completely  after glandular fever so all power to Heather for fighting back so quickly.

I think you're right about Heather's coach Jo

The Ferrer  match was a good one too. And we got an added bonus  at 7pm. Sabine Lisicki gave a master class in her match. Roll on tomorrow

He's great isn't he Toots... Very entertaining.
 
A few players have dropped out with injuries
so he could do well in his quarter of the draw.
 
Murray looks like he has this one under control.

Hi everyone - loving the whole event already and I'm still following on text updates at work! Roll on next week when I can plonk myself in front of the telly!
 
Fantastic win for Laura yesterday, so pleased fo her.  I'm slightly worried for Andy though - Nadal out, now Tsonga's pulled out too, people are going to start saying things are falling his way.  With Federer looking so good and Djokovic too, I daren't even think about it!

Sure was Bren and what comes next I ask myself?

I don't blame the players voicing concerns about the courts.   If I fall over its a bit painful, but it doesn't change my life. If they fall, it could be the end of their careers.

How fantastic was Stakhovskiy (sp!) yesterday?  Loved seeing somebody actually attacking the net - and Dustin Brown has gained another fan in me.
 
Not sorry to see the back of Sharapova, although it's a pity she lost to another squawker. Just hope Laura Robson keeps it together today.  I worry more about her when she's expected to win than when she's the underdog!

LOL Hopefully Michelle Larchar will go out in the next round. Far too loud!

Imagine living next door to her girlsShocked

I'm worried about the courts. Hubby says its the shoes, but they sure do look greasy to me. If I fell over, I'd be stiff and sore for a while. If the players have a bad fall it could end their careers.
Do you remember the old head groundsman in the 60's and 70's? he always wore a flat cap and had those courts immaculate and playable from day 1. I bed when he retired, he was replaced by someone with an ology
