And they won. All credit to Lopez who could easily have pulled out to concentrate on the singles

And guess who Murray A and his partner Melo M are playing in the first round of doubles at Eastboune? Yep, the no. 1 seeds Cabal & Farah again  ::-)

I just love stories like this. (In spoilers just in case people want to watch highlights).

Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

We’ve been today and seen Stan win, a five setter with the men’s seventh seed knocked out, a retirement and the women’s third seed win. Quite a day.

That seems to happen often enough that you could cross-post to the "BONG ..And Here is the Not News..BONG" thread. ;)

Dan Evans match looked like it'd be a walkover in the first set-and-a-half, but now it's pretty gripping!

You've got to feel pretty sorry for Carla Suarez Navarro.  She's played Serena Williams 7 times now and taken a total of 20 games from her!

I'm not normally a great tennis fan, although I do dabble.

Is it not unusual for the combined ages of the world top 3 to be over 100 years?

I would say it is.

related factoid from yesterday's coverage: that was the oldest (Gents) semi-final foursome in the open era.



Cracking match by Fed-n-Raf! I'm not a big fan of the latter, but you have to love his commitment. He was giving 110%(at least) in the last few games, as Federer sloooowly closed in on the win. Some amazing points.

I hope the final is as good, although I fear my guy is less likely to win that one.
