I wouldn't be surprised if Lisicki wins it. She's amazing!

Where's Bambi gone? She hasn't been here since saturday...

I don't know I'm wondering where she is too. We are backing Lisicki for the championship BUT! we've seen and I 'm sure you have too Jo, someone come through after knocking out a champion and causing a huge upset the go out in straight sets in the next round. Its as if they gave their all and haven't fully recharged for the next one. I doubt Sabine will be like that because she has an old head on those shoulders

I've not gone far, ladies - just flattened by banging headaches. Probably didn't help myself much by bouncing up and down cheering for Sabine Lisicki!

Laura, I hope, will come back stronger with a bit more experience. I've not been so optimistic about a British girl in years as I am about her. I remember feeling the same about Andy Murray at a similar stage in his career, and he's not let me down!

Bit gutted that two of my favourite women's players are in the same half of the draw - Lisicki and Radwanska. If either one wins the championship I'll be delighted. Andy had me worried for a bit in the second set, but then Djokovic looked almost human against Tommy Haas too, so I'm still hoping!

Laura will do it right enough Bambi, but it wasn't to be this year. Lisicki came through effortlessly today didn't she?  I'm rooting for her and also Andy. I thought it would be an unusual Wimbledon when Marcus Baghdatis went out in round 1 and I wasn't far wrong.

How are you Jo? I haven't said anything before, because I didn't want to sound like a whinger but we have had a very uncertain and unsettling  couple of weeks. Out of the blue, after getting the all clear, Mark had a call back for another angiogram. The letter said 'irregularities'  We've been awfully worried. We went for the tests today and damn me it wasn't a problem on Mark's side at all. The machine didn't give a clear enough picture and the consultant wanted it re done to be absolutely sure. He sailed through, but why couldn't they have said what it was and saved us a lot of worry. Talking about worry...

Have we had the ransom note on Deborah yet? It's not like her not to be on here for Wimbledon no matter how busy she is.

Hope you feel better soon Bambi; Glad Mark has the all clear Toots.
 
Another day of surprises... I didn't expect Bartoli or Flipkens to win.
I don't have a favourite which makes it far less stressful to watch!

Serena being out has certainly made the ladies event more interesting; I was one of those who had her down as an absolute certainty!

It's nice to be able to sit back and relax watching the tennis - I'll be on edge tomorrow for Andy again! And I'm glad they're showing a bit of the "seniors" doubles. McEnroe wasn't exactly my favourite in his prime - I didn't like the outbursts - but when he kept his mouth shut, he was one heck of a player.

I'm glad Mark is OK Toots. I hope you are well too Bambi. I'm not follwing Wimbledon (you probably already guessed that). They only show the highlights most of the time on free to air TV, but they do show the whole match when an Aussie is playing. I think Tomic is the only one left. When it is shown live, I'm in bed because of the time difference. Its shown everynight on of the pay TV channels, but we don't have that.

Murray's up second on Centre. I feel nervous already.

He's going to win isn't he... He has to win. C'mon Andy Bounce

Glad it's not just me, Jo! It's ridiculous how worked up I get about these things, even when my head's saying he should come through it fine

Hello Margi, by the way! You may get to see a bit more of Wimbledon in years to come: I can see Tomic doing very well here someday.

This is such a brave effort from Del Potro after that horrible-looking fall! I was rooting for him anyway because I thought he could give Djokovic more of a fight than Ferrer could, but now - come on, Juan Martin!

Switching Murry off so that I can concentrate on tea. I never thought I'd say this but he doesn't deserve to win playing like this. Verdasco is playing Murray AND the crowd but you wouldn't think it. On top of that, Murray's language is not that sweet. I hope he's pulled himself together when I go back over

On the bright side at least I won't spend Friday as a nervous wreck, because I won't really mind who gets through to the final!
