Wimbledon 07

Henman Hill continues to exist with Murray out injured...so far the match between Moya and Tim looks like it might already be the match of the tournament, unfortunately now postponed til tomorrow due to bad light..

Federer went through easily enough as did Roddick...Nadal to play tomorrow.

Henman's match was great until the postponement. I hope he goes through, I'm tired of being disappointed every year. From memory I think Henman usually does poorly the next day after a match being postponed, usually because of weather.

Centre Court looks odd with the roof gone. Can't wait for the finished product for 2009!

I think it looks kinda cool open top, makes it seem absolutely massive.

The English media and people always seemed so harsh on Henman, he was a top 10 player for a hell of a long time, and you don't get there by being 'Timid Tim'. Most players would have killed to have had his career.

This is what kills tennis for me. There's no surprises in the men's draw... Federer is never challenged up until at least the semis, and even then he still wins.

I'm flying my flag for The GOOCH!

I'm sat here with my Robinson's Wimbledon Lemon Barley water watching Tim make a meal of it against Moya. It's a great match but I don't think my nerves can take it!

By the way, I LOVE the "Oooooooooh" noise from the crowd every time Hawkeye is used

That was hilarious when I first saw it.

So Henman is level 1-1 with Lopez and will be playing a fourth consecutive day the poor bugger. His match will continue Thurs at 1300 BST which is unfortunately 5 in the bloody morning here!

For the Henman fans out there, here is a mask from BBC you can download - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sportacademy/b...pdf/henman.pdf

Poor Tiger Tim. I support him every year, only to be disappointed. That mask is fantastic though.

The Tipsarevic vs Gonzalez match was awesome...Tip played quite well in what was a very see-saw match...he looks like he belongs in a metal band with his tattoos and piercings...plus his tatto quoting Dostoyevsky 'Beauty will save the world' is quite cool.

Poor Serena! I was in tears when I saw her crying. Several women in the spectators stands were bawling as well. What a fighter Serena is. Thank heavens for the rain delay... I hope it's just cramps and not a strain.

The worst part was seeing Venus with her head in her hands. : (

And her mother crying...

Wow, Serena, just wow. I cannot believe this. That has to be one of the most impressive comebacks I have ever witnessed at Wimbledon over the past six years. How did she do it?!
