I'm expecting Roger to win at least one more Grand Slam title, bringing his total up to 18. With Rafa's ongoing health issues and his very defensive style of play, I don't see him winning enough to catch up to Roger's mark ... especially the way Novak has been playing of late ... I'm expecting DelPo to get back to form sooner rather than later also.

Rafa needs to tweak his playing style to make the wins come a little easier for him ... this standing 10 feet behind the baseline all the time is not going to cut it.

He'd have to be an odds on favourite at Wimbledon.... that's HIS major and if he plays the way that he did at the French I like his chances.

I agree. Of course, I will continue to vehemently cheer for Rafa; however, I won't be disappointed if Roger wins.

Raonic took a bad, bad tumble in the opening set of his match today ... out of Wimbledon. I am sad.

It would've been nice to see him go up against Nadal in the next round. Tough break.

Tough break for Canada too ... he's likely out of Davis Cup action.

Djokovic versus Baghdatis was solid gold entertainment.

Looking forward to Nadal versus Del Potro on Monday!!

Bartoli just outmuscled Serena in straight sets, though it took 5 match points to get it done. Some amazing play in that one. She's got a good chance to win it all if she keeps it up.

Now Venus has gone down, to Pironkova, and it wasn't even close.

Wow... both Williams sisters gone... Wozniaki gone... maybe this is Sharapova's time for a comeback slam win?

Nadal and Del Po with an absolute battle. Incredible how much competition there is on the men's side. Nadal managed to get one break and that was enough to win in 4. Both guys had injury timeouts. Hopefully Rafa's heel is ok. Marry Fish should be a breeze after this one.

I hope so but Mardy Fish has been playing very well of late.

That was an INCREDIBLE match! The hitting and the net play were superb!

Also quite happy that Feliciano Lopez is through ... need more Spanish pretty (now waiting for Bel to tell me that Feli is an asshole also ... please don't, Bel. ).

haha, you are out of luck, a couple of friends of mine have worked at the madrid masters as drivers for 2 years in a row. They both heard in different times people from the circuit say he is an arrogant douche. Ferrer they say though he is awesome. Very nice guy.

Oh, Bel!! But he's so damn pretty! Why must you do this to me?

As happy as I was for Rafa, I was really sad for Ferrer. Guy has a hell of a lot of heart. Love him.

As long as Andy Murray doesn't win I'll be happy. I don't know what it is about him but his face makes me want to punch it... On a similar note, I was laughing my ass off when Roddick was eliminated early AGAIN. Good on him.

Fish is playing very well... so is Tsonga.... it'll be interesting to see what those guys can do.

So disappointed that Raonic got injured... I was really looking forward to seeing him play Nadal in Rd. 3.
