It’s day 6 at Wimbledon already! Hasn’t it been a great tournament already? There’s been some upsets for both the men and the women, which is always nice to see as long as it’s not one of your favourites.

The rain has been causing havoc in typical British fashion after staying away the last couple of years, so lots of matches today are half-finished matches from yesterday and some players such as poor Juan Martin Del Potro are about to play for the fifth day in a row. Hopefully we catch up to schedule and middle Sunday can give him and all the others a bit of a break! There are a few showers scheduled early today but with play not starting until 12pm we should see plenty of sun and plenty of matches completed.

The boys and girls matches kick off today but it’s fair to say that winning a junior Grand Slam is no guarantee of future success. The last junior girl who then went on to win the senior title was Amelie Mauresmo who won in 1996 and then ten years later in 2006. On the men’s side it was good old Roger Federer who was junior champ in 1998 and of course he has been senior champ six times since then. Since their victories there have been some junior champions who have become big names on the senior tour and just as many that I’ve literally never heard of. Did you know Nicolas Mahut was junior champ in 2000? He hasn’t quite reached the career heights of the winner from two years before him, but of course his name is definitely in the Wimbledon history books.

Today I can go as far as saying the Wimbledon schedule actually makes sense which is rare! All the matches on Centre Court are definitely worthy of being there. Here is your show court line up for today:

    royal box is chocca with English sporting royalty today.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 12:14

    Roger Bannister! It's like they're practicing filling up the box for the Olympics.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 12:17

    oh apparently its tradition on middle saturday to fill up the box with sports champions. I didn't know that :)

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 12:46

    Picture added, love it.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 12:52

    Picture added, love it.

    I would definitely recommend the tour and museum to everyone :)

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 12:52

    I would also like to watch tennis for 1 shilling.

    What a fab picture!

    I love the way back in the day they were just like 'oh the championship match will probably be played on this day, no promises though'

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 13:12

    It'll probably happen, we guess. :)

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 13:23

    yaay that Caroline is doing well!

    I want Jarka to win, I like her :)

    She won't though.

    Today I spoke to my parents for the last time before they go to London, I told mum to say hi to Roger if she sees him, she said she doesn't know what he looks like. Oh mum.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 13:23

    i don't know whether to watch Rafa's or Caroline's match...

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 13:29

    i don't know whether to watch Rafa's or Caroline's match...

    I've got Nadal on mute. Not really watching because he is bound to win it.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 13:30

    I've got Nadal on mute. Not really watching because he is bound to win it.

    i have to go out soon so am trying to soak up as much tennis as i can. : )

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 13:31

  • lou25/06/2011 at 13:34

    wozzy wins. bye bye aussie

    :D

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 13:42

    Nadal wins, and still manages to squeeze in an opportunity to take his top off.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 13:43

    Delpo is defending no points for the rest of the year. He's going to monster up the rankings

  • lou25/06/2011 at 13:46

    the red button woman is annoying. she doesn't know what she's doing.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 13:50

    and now to Fed's match.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 13:50

    I just realised I wasn't watching Roger because he's on pay tv, not fta. Yay for not missing anything.

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 13:53

    Ooh, do I see that Ivanovic lady has lost the first set?

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 13:53

    they must know your license fee will be paying for it so they jack up their prices :D

  • lou25/06/2011 at 14:07

    right, time to go out now. good luck fed!

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 14:53

    Rog is doing well :)

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:02

    ooh Roger just looked like I do when I play tennis

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:09

    Impressed that Serena took the first set from Kirilenko, I was worried now that she is playing a seed.

  • Alison25/06/2011 at 15:10

    I ♥ the Williams sisters.

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 15:13

    ooh Roger just looked like I do when I play tennis

    What did he look like?

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:14

    What did he look like?

    he went to hit quite an easy ball and missed it completely by about a foot

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 15:14

    he went to hit quite an easy ball and missed it completely by about a foot

    Ohh, that's embarrassing.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:15

    Ohh, that's embarrassing.

    at least this time it wasn't on match point, he did that when he lost the 2010 madrid masters final. It's probably quite jarring to your shoulders to expect to hit something but hitting nothing but air.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:16

    Ohh, that's embarrassing.

    here is a whole page of gifs of embarrassing shots in tennis :D http://yourvolleyssuck.wordpress.com/greatest-hits/

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:34

    overhead fail.

    Another one to add to the page.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:42

    Fed giving credit to an opponent from a year ago. How self centred and arrogant.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:42

    "Roger Federer perspiring, I'm starting to think he's human afterall"

    My commies think we're in opposite land too.

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 15:44

    That Lisicki woman is through another round. Intriguing.

    crazy lady must have forgotten shes supposed to be injured all the time

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 15:46

    It might even have been a saxophone.

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 16:42

    Baghdatis is wearing the same green and blue as Murray.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 16:43

    Set point for Novak.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 16:43

    Baghdatis is wearing the same green and blue as Murray.

    they really don't treat Murray like their top player

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 16:50

    Roar!

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 17:06

    Ooh bagdhatis got the break and has gone ahead. intruiging.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:06

    Isn't tomic something like 120 in the world?

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 17:18

    how is Tomic beating Soderling, hooooow

    They said Soderling was feeling sick and dizzy earlier. Doctors and stuff.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:18

    Isn't tomic something like 120 in the world?

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 17:27

    He actually broke his racket!

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:27

    smashy smashy.

    I bet they like that even less here than they do at other tournaments, it's probably far more damaging to the turf than the racket

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:32

    he's been so cool all year and now he's just losing his mind in a murray like way

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 17:33

    he's been so cool all year and now he's just losing his mind in a murray like way

    is he going to hulk out do you think?

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:35

    is he going to hulk out do you think?

    that'd be awesome. turn the same colour as the grass for competitive advantage :D

    I just remembered I put money on Rog to win this waaay back in April. Gooo Rog!

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 17:35

    1-1 then, Blimey this could be interesting!

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:36

    whats the punishment? cost a game?

  • Alison25/06/2011 at 17:37

    whats the punishment? cost a game?

    Fine.

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:38

    whats the punishment? cost a game?

    they get a warning, if they do it again they lose a point if they do it again a game, if they're dumb enough to do it 4 times they forfeit the match

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 17:38

    Oops, my comment disappeared. I did say, 1-1, could be an interesting match from here :D

  • Alison25/06/2011 at 17:38

    they get a warning, if they do it again they lose a point if they do it again a game, if they're dumb enough to do it 4 times they forfeit the match

    Really?? Crazy.

    Is that just for one match or carried over the whole tournement?

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:39

    Is that just for one match or carried over the whole tournement?

    just for the match. It covers all code violations, not just racket abuse

  • Amy25/06/2011 at 17:40

    Really?? Crazy.

    not really, if you're dumb enough to break the rules of your sport 4 times in one match you deserve to lose it :D

  • Alison25/06/2011 at 17:41

    not really, if you're dumb enough to break the rules of your sport 4 times in one match you deserve to lose it :D

    Yeah. I'm surprised you get so many chances tbh.

    Novak was a lot more like his normal self in the third set and won it but it's been even again in the fourth. Can;t help but notice how frustrated Djokovic has seemed today too

    He must have thought it was going to be easier.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 18:50

    He must have thought it was going to be easier.

    Yeah I reckon so. He's 4-2 up in the fourth set and I think he'll take it from here to be honest but Bahgdatis has done alright :)

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 18:51

    I say that and baghdatis takes another game, he's not giving in :D

  • Alison25/06/2011 at 18:52

    Yeah I reckon so. He's 4-2 up in the fourth set and I think he'll take it from here to be honest but Bahgdatis has done alright :)

    Also the crowd seem to love the other guy and he's used to being the popular one.

    oh my god!!

    What what what!

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 19:10

    What what what!

    Bagdhatos kept getting a break point and it looked like he'd won the game but it was out before the shot that novak hit was out! Aaahhhh!!!

    Now novak has just lost another match point *booooooooom*

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 19:11

    Djokovic has been trying to serve for the match for 10 minutes now

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 19:12

    Awwwwwwwww... djokovic wins. What a match!

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 19:12

    Awwwwwwwww... djokovic wins. What a match!

    I was just about to put it on. Figures it'd be over before I could find the stream :)

    I was just about to put it on. Figures it'd be over before I could find the stream :)

    Well I blame novak ;)
