can't have thiem beat nadal otherwise it might galvanise the Austrian football team before Sunday's qualifier.
 
djokovic could it in turns to hit his returns long/wide/into the net. shocking last set by him

thiem v djokovic will be a great match! murray will take a lot of confidence from the 3set win over del potro. was definitely the one player all of the top seeds didn't want in their draw.

Funbags was down a set and 5-1 today and won 3-6, 7-6, 6-0

Semi-finals looks like this

Halep (3) v Pliskova (2)

Ostapenko v Bacsinszky (30)

Mens Quarter finals looks great

Murray v Nishikori

Stanimal v Cilic

Thiem v Novak


The semi-final should be 
Murray v Stanimal
Nadal v Novak
(Although Thiem looks the best bet to cause an upset)

The Ladies will have a new winner as all previous winners are not playing or have been knocked out.


The Semi finals should be brilliant - 

Murray (1) v Stanimal (3)
Both have had terrible clay court seasons but have played themselves into form. Stan hasn't dropped a set yet.

Nadal (4) v Thiem (6)
Both players haven't dropped a set yet. The only person to beat Nadal on Clay this season was Thiem in straight sets a few weeks ago.

I could see both of these going the distance. 
I think we could be looking at a Stanimal v Nadal final.

Men's Wimbledon odds:

Fed:      9/4
Murray: 4/1
Nadal:   4/1
Djoko:   6/1

Rest start at 18/1

Incredible turn around from 6 months ago.
Murray and Djokovic would have been clear favourites.
Hope Fed does win.

Any chance of someone from outside the big 4 of winning it and if so who would be your pick?

Of the young players in the game at the minute, who are the closest to breaking into the top 3 in the world?

Alex Zverev
Nick Kyrigos
Dominic Thiem (probably more suited to clay)
David Goffin
Lucas Pouille

19 of the current top 30 men are age 29 or over.
So in 4/5 years time there'll be very different semi-final line ups than you see now.

Federer drawn to play a potentially injured Murray in the semis probably why he is fav, wouldn't rule out a big tournament from Dimitrov.

Heading over for the last 16 on centre court next Monday, looking forward to it.

Women's championship is completely wide open without Serena in it.

Wimbledon starts today ClapClapClap

I'm going on Wednesday but just to the outside courts.

Murray and Nadal playing today.

In the mens it will be one of the big 4 that will win it. Its amazing they have won it since 2003.
I don't see them all making the semi finals tho. 

The womens is wide open. Pliskova is the fav but we could see a new winner/1st time GS winner.

Andy Murray playing some randomer Bublik now on the BBC.  Murray's ma has to be the biggest geebag out there. I'd say she is as competitive as fook. You never see Murray's da.  She has him locked up somewhere probably.
On a side note.  Imagine sitting courtside having to look back and forth constantly! How sore would your neck be after 2 hrs!

The same could be said when watching Ireland play, 90 mins of Randolph hoofing the ball to Walters.

Sure who could stay married to that witch.  Still, doesn't stop Murrays da from letting the world know he exists by actually turning up to a match.

Maybe you missed the part about ''courtside'' young bhob.   If you can move your eyes that much you have an unusual range of motion. Almost circus freak like.  And if you do happen to possess this extraterrestrial ability to move your eyes that much you do realise that your eyes are controlled by muscles thus should you be courtside with your superhuman eyes you would after 2 hrs have eyestrain.
