Opening event of new centre court at Wimbledon on BBC TV now. Well worth watching. I am wattching the mixed right now and it is a good humoured joy to watch. Almost as though Steffi has never been away. She is still hitting the ball and looking great.

Andre is playing with the new Radical Youtek and Steffi is playing with one of the Head Youtek Speed (don't know if it's the pro or mp)

^ Thanks... or a Youtek PJ... Lol...

I suspected the Steffi's white stick was the Djoker's stick... but not sure about AA's... till now.

Next up: Men's Singles... Andre vs. Tim

Andre beats Tim 6-4!

Really enjoyable stuff, both guys were playing some nice tennis and it's all being played in a great spirit.

I'm hoping this means Steffi and Kim are playing next or did they play earlier?

Tims volleys are still top notch - esp in the doubles

that was great stuff, Steffi looked radiant and she still plays incredible tennis.

Kimmy looked pretty good too, bit more training and I think she's got a decent shot with her comeback

I'd love a yearly wimbledon exo

Just watched, I know the emphasis is on Clijster's return, but the Graf forehand and footwork is still a thing of beauty..

Couldn't agree more. I saw a recent interview with her and Andre and they said they only got to hit about once a month - so with Steffi having being retired for so long I was not expecting much but she hit and moved beautifully and certainly still gets a lot on her forehand. She caught Kim off-guard with it several times. She also looked to be really enjoying it and even, jokingly, asked for a wildcard to this year's Wimbledon in the on court post match interview. The president on the AELTC was nodding like crazy in response to that !
