I wrote yesterday's thread too early to have the order of play, but I have sussed it out now! Roger Federer will be first on Centre Court, with Clijsters and Djokovic following closely behind. Sharapova will make an appearance on Court 1 playing Pironkova, whilst Heather Watson will be up first on Court 2 for her second round match. Also in action today: Sabine Lisicki, Li Na (Na Li? Never quite figured that out), Kimiko Date-Krumm (who I remember for an awesome match against a Williams), and Sam Stosur. Another great day ahead.

    nice, lisicki match on now waiting for the last aussie in stosur to take the court. what a bunch of spuds we have been this year, first time since 1938 no aussie bloke has gone through to the second round at wimbledon, bunch of spuds the lot of them.

    watson takes the first set 6-1

  • Mr C27/06/2012 at 11:26

    am watching now. was briefly distracted by the bloke from buffy... singing on another channel.

    "It was a grim day for Australia - the worst day in living memory" said Paul McNamee. What an over exaggeration. I see nothing wrong with Tomic losing in the first round. Wish he could always do that.

    Nice to see Watson doing well, and in fashion news I HATE that one shouldered Adidas thing Ana Ivanovic is wearing. The tank and skirt version that Jovanovski is wearing looks much better.

  • Lukeh27/06/2012 at 11:27

    just got in from a bit of swimming and now im feeling nice and fit to watch some tennis, of course.

    if this is an attempt for pictures of Ana it is failing because I only have photos of it by itself. Looks normal from the front http://img.tennis-warehouse.com/new_product/AWFAZD-WH-1.jpg,

    it looks worse on, especialy since shes wearing an X back sports bra so its not giving the "desired" effect anyway.

    rus starts with two double faults in a row, and sam breaks in the first game, never seen rus play before but all i can say is strewth, not bad, but i think it may be a quick match

  • Lukeh27/06/2012 at 12:17

    federer already breaks the other chap who john mcenroe sounds like keeps calling panini, which is making me really hungry

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 12:33

    Roger has a set already? that was quick

  • john27/06/2012 at 12:35

    woah rus breaks back, after a nervous start she is looking a bit better now. rus up 3-2 in the first.

  • Lukeh27/06/2012 at 12:35

    I am cornfused because everywhere said the debut would be Unsustainable but now I see from their website its Survival and I have so many feels because I love everything to do with the Olympics.

    I can see a lot of their fans hating this "sell out corporate" move though, am I right? :D

  • Lukeh27/06/2012 at 12:38

    I can see a lot of their fans hating this "sell out corporate" move though, am I right? :D

    Fans were complaining yesterday that unsustainable was gonna be dubstep and allsorts... before the song had actually been played... or confirmed... or even any hint that it was going to be that song. so I would put your money on that being the case :)

    I can't wait though!! :D

    yeah the nadal - djokovic - federer matches are unbelievable and could go either way, cant quite put murray in there yet but he isnt far behind, on his day you never know he might just win, but the other three are just a little ahead right now, id like to see federer but i like all three so when it comes down to it its just going to be awesome to watch when the semis and final is on

    Most recent one is Grand slam tennis as far as I'm aware which is good but far too easy. I'd recommend top spin 4.

    I should give Grand Slam Tennis a go because I like easy things and I generally like what EA Sports does.

    definitely. originally i was just going for tennis, but in my initial ballot i applied for 5 other popular things and ended up with a swimming ticket and two tennis tickets. then once the first in first served sales started i figured i might as well fill in the gaps in between. Spent a lot more than I ever planned on but I figure its a once in a lifetime thing so I might as well do it well.

    yeah definately, no point missing out, the last thing youd want to do is leave saying why didnt i just do this or go there,it would be an awesome experience, we may actually do alright in the swimming too, might get to cheer home some aussie gold!!!

    I'm not an Australian but living here I can't complain too much if the coverage is aimed at people who are! It'll be much better this time around for me with Foxtels coverage, I get back a couple of days before the Games finish so I'll have that on 24/7

    yeah the foxtel coverage is by far alot better than the commercial coverage on 9 this year i think. i just assumed you were an australian so yeah if you want to see other countries sports there is pretty much no chance especially on free to air, and ten thousand replays of stephanie rice or some other aussie swimmer winning would get pretty annoying, very quickly.

    of the 9 medals NZ won in Beijing I managed to see one of them, because there was also an Australian in the final.

    any new zealanders a chance this year? valerie adams in the shot put would have to be close to the favourite for gold but im not sure who else.

    our mens rowing pair are considered a gold medal lock in, we have lots of others who might win medals but probably not golds.

    These are our top chances: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/olympics/top-20-nz-olympic-hopefuls

    The main goal of our IOC seems to be to get 10 in any colour because we've won 90 in total over the years and they're hoping to get to 100 this time around.

    What better way to ease a post-work headache than a bit of Wimbledon. It should be on every week.

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 16:17

    I see we have a roof.

    indeed. so you're instantly better than the USA and Paris

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 16:22

    This lady just saved some match points against Wozniacki. I recall not liking Woz but I don't know why. Haven't looked through all them threads yet :)

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 16:22

    @Wimbledon: We've got a rain update - expected to continue for a while but we're hoping for more play before the end of the day

    your favourite Lisicki won earlier

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 16:24

    Yay! And Heather did well too. I remember liking her after she had to stop with a hurt arm... somewhen.

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 16:25

    I was watching this Woz match earlier thinking that tennis makes me a terrible person because theres just SO many players that I get a lot of pleasure out of watching lose. It's like theres 10000 Schumachers.

    Well, the field is a lot bigger! It's only fair. 1 Schumi for every 24 drivers. 10 tennises for every 100 players, etc, etc.

    10 for every 240?

    Hoping Wozniacki loses, mainly because of her acquaintance with Rory McIlroy, who I similarly can't stand.

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 16:28

    Something like that.

    It's tricky, because I hope she loses but equally, if she wins then she'll be off my TV quicker.

    since I am addicted to tabloid gossip I read this the other day and though he looks so smarmy, staring straight into the camera http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2164142/Wimbledon-2012-Two-stars-nice-way-warm-up.html

    yes, i want to watch Kim and I don't want to stay up forever again, but I want her to lose. So conflicted.

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 16:32

    ooh, third set

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 16:39

    outside courts resuming!

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 17:14

    well it definitely looks like i'll be up at 4.30 so i guess i'd better see if i can get radio 1 on my ipad.

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 17:16

    bye bye woz!

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 17:18

    Yay! That was a great final set too.

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 17:19

    loved it. her ranking just keeps plummeting

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 17:20

    Was that first round too? Blimey!

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 17:21

    yep. Good thing shes not the #1 anymore because she'd get even more grief for that

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 17:23

    apparently this is the second slam in a row that the womens player who'd won the most consecutive R1 slam matches has lost. Woz had 18 previous R1 wins and before the French Serena had 46.

    That Pascek seemed very nice in her interview too. Win-win!

  • Lukeh27/06/2012 at 17:56

    I don't know why but Baker on the BBC2 match now keeps making me think of Matt Baker

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 18:00

    I turned on Radio 1 and was enjoying all the Britishness but now that damn Kiwi is there. He sounds like me, thats not exciting.

    i have never ever in my life heard any of the other songs they've played. am i that out of touch with modern music or is this a hipster station?

  • Christine27/06/2012 at 18:12

    Baker just held serve after going 0-40 down. I don't think he's long for this match, but impressive stuff!

    radio 1 is very mainstream and won't play anything else from muse so you can get away with it :)

  • Amy27/06/2012 at 18:15

    I just realised Kim's opponent is wearing Sharapovas dress. I'm nothing if not observant.

    This is a 'new music' show, most of the usual modern stuff is on in 'daytime'.
