ouch. I was way too tired to post here yesterday, considering I spent all evening watching the tennis.

They showed Srichaphan-Hrbaty first, and were probably expecting a quick three setter (they kept promising COMING UP: KARLOVIC-HEWITT). Unfortunately Paradorn lost his concentration and almost lost the match. Still, nice to see the old boy win a match (finally, I think the last time I saw him win on TV was the final in Chennai when he whacked Kucera).

Anyway, they cut briefly to the tiebreak second set (which Lleyton lost). Surprisingly, when they cut back again, the fourth set was starting - and Hewitt had lost the third 6-3! Amazing stuff. Poor Lleyton, he's had an awful year. And man, is that Karlovic guy big. The last time this happened was actually in '67, the only time it happened. So ouch.

alright I'm listening to Sluiter playing Kafelnikov on Radio Wimbledon...he's just taken the first set, I think. 7-5.

Yay! Sluiter beat Kafelnikov in 5 sets! Way to go Raemon. And a nice match it was to see (at least for us Dutchies ). A nice heroic battle by Sluiter on the centre court, pity that it was only the 1st round. The tournament is just starting.

As for Verkerk, I haven't seen the match, but I heard from him that he wasn't playing well at all. He still misses the experience at playing on grass. He hopes to be better in a few years. Still, I had hoped he could have survived the first round...

C ya!

Marty

rain delay! hopefully this will help paradorn, whose shot making against olivier mutis has been horrific to say the least, and he's down 2 sets to love and just threw away a 5-1 lead in the third.

I'm following it too through the Internet (the real-time scoreboard of Wimbledon). It isn't looking good though for him (even though it's 2-1 for Srichapan in the tie break).

C ya!

2-1!
edit: that meant sets. he finally took it, but he was pretty lucky. hopefully the rain delay would have "woken him up from lunch", as vijay amitraj (the commentator we have) has said.

Unfortunately, he's again 2-4 behind in the fourth set. This going to be tough...

C ya!

Phew, that was close. 2 Match points saved? OK, I only saw the last one on my scoreboard (hey, I have to work too ). Again a gruelling 5-set match...

C ya!
