What's up with Queen's? The site won't load and as far as I can see there are no ongoing games right now. Rain delay?

Eurosport International is showing Tipsarevic - Lu. Apparently matches resumed earlier today but still there has been and will be rain through the day they warn.

I agree, Rafa definitely looks beatable, very much so, but that doesn't mean he'll actually get beaten. Most of his opponents are simply overwhelmed by the occasion. It doesn't take earth shattering tennis to beat him but it does take a firm and unwavering mindset. Is there such a player right now?
Over 3 sets yes. Over 5 sets, very few.

Think about Rafa's GS history. He has barely lost a match before the final in a GS (when fit) since 2009? And even in 2009 vs Del Potro US Open, he was just coming back from a layoff. When he is fit, at a GS it takes a hell of an effort to beat him.

WHY do people entertain trolls like clarky? :roll:
Seriously, it is getting beyond tedious now. It was funny for a while but it isn't anymore. I am considering turning into a Djoker's fan version of Clarky if most people on this forum enjoy such tiresome posts.

Tipsy's out. Not even surprising.

And Romeo, I'm looking for you. As of right now, Nalby's having trouble with the "amateur" Roger-Vasselin. You need to learn that everyone's a pro, and can knock anyone else off, and there are reasons behind their rankings.

It is. I'm forced to see here username ALL OVER THE PLACE on match-threads because people just won't stop entertaining her nonsense.

The winner of Nalbandian vs Roger-Vasselin has to play Malisse today as well!
If they don't finish play today they are screwed. There's still a first round doubles match to be played when Anderson finishes his singles. Anderson may have to play three times today and three times tomorrow if he wins all his matches. Don't know why Queens has an extra round of singles and doubles compared to other 250 tournaments as it's usually a scramble to get everything played.
 
Watching Fed's match from yesterday.

These announcers are fine, but they have a hard time coming up with good facts about certain players. Why just in the last two days, I've learned such nuggets about Florian Mayer.

He has made it past the first round of every grand slam tournament.

He was the 2004 newcomer of the year.

Seriously, is that all you can come up with for a top 30 player?

And people say that Ralph doesn't moonball. Did you see those to forehands at deuce in Kohlschr. first service game? Ludicrous.

They were shanks, unintentional. No other shots in the game looked anything like those 2 frame balls. One went sailing over the baseline....

Shanks my bottom. You could see the swing he took clearly on the first one in the replay. It looked like he was lobbing.

Anderson win the first set. The conditions favour the big server Anderson and he is playing the better tennis. Dimitrov seems to be struggling with the windy conditions.
 
lol is Nadal injured or something? What's going on?
Nadal is playing outstandingly well, except for one game (when he was broken in 2nd game). This is the best I've ever seen Nadal play though in a Wimbledon warm-up. Hitting the cover off the ball, and serving like he did yesterday (the 123mph average serve and high of 136mph). I've seen Nadal play drop shots many times but today I just saw Nadal fake the footwork of a big forehand and suddenly stop on a dime and play a forehand drop shot.

Not sure what match you are watching. Nadal looks atrocious.

Huh? Nadal was only broken once, was in the 2nd game. What's wrong with that?
The problem is,on grass losing serve even one time is a lot.
If Nadal loses his serve on clay,it`s no big deal.He can easily make it up,but on grass it`s not in his control anymore to get back in it.

wow, Kohlschreiber is only serving 55% first serves and Nadal serving at 67% first serve. Kohlschrieber still manages to win the first set. 0.o
