Well, I guess not everyone.

It just seems like quite a few people here were rooting against him. I just wondered if there was reason.

Roddick's exit means there's only one American left in the whole of singles competition.

Shenay Perry.

yeah, quite shocking really...

in the mens singles draw the only country that still has multiple players left is the Czech Republic.

well i root against him myself, always have really. partly because he always used to play Federer in the finals of stuff and it was incredibly boring plus the media over here hypes him to no end, and that always puts me off players

Blame his opposition for not being better. He'll be found out eventually.

I'm not blaming Federer or his opponents, but for me it's boring him winning all the time.

Murray actually made a couple of throwaway comments about buying a Paraguay or Trinidad jersey and supporting whoever England were playing.

Your lovely English media then proceeded to blow it way out of proportion. Hell, Murray was joking about it with Tim Henman afterwards. If Andy Murray disrespected English people then Henman wouldn't be his idol, then, would he? His blog was then spammed by complete idiots despite Murray clarifying he never actually meant those comments seriously. Dumb thing to say in the first place, but hardly indicative that he hates England.

That said I find him terribly annoying for some reason.

As for Federer it's not like it's not happened before. Sampras, Becker, McEnroe, Borg. Williams, Graf, and Navratilova in the women's.

i only saw parts of it, but Ancic played very well from what i saw and Federer was still cruising.

I dont know about 3-0 but what I find incredible is Ancic is number 10 in the world and an excellent grass court player and still he didn't look like he had any business being with federer on the court.

In fact....I can't remember anyone looking like they had any business being across from federer on grass.

The man is truly a remarkable talent.

Ancic was the last guy to beat him at Wimbledon. Hell, Ancic was the last guy to beat him on grass. Federer was unbelievable last night, considering the fact his draw would have been tough for most other players - Gasquet, Henman, Mahut, Berdych and Ancic.

I'm pleased for Baghdatis, by the way, who looked to have fallen off the wayside a bit after the Australian Open. Good win for him, and I think he's got a decent chance against either Nieminen or Nadal. Pleased for Bjorkman as well.

Little Lleyton Is Out. I thought he was going to come back and steal it after he won that second set.

Well Done to Baghdatis
