Wimbledon 2015 Day 04

There were no major upsets on the men's side of the draw yesterday. Novak and Stan both came through comfortably. A couple of the top men were really pushed and at a couple of points it did look as though an upset might be on the cards. Sadly the fifth seed, Kei Nishikori had to pull out of the tournament even before he played his match with an injury; his withdrawal sets things up even more clearly for a Novak vs. Stan semi final.

There was another fairly major upset on the women's side when Ana Ivanovic crashed out - she was another of my favourites :-(

The Brits had a mixed day with Liam Broady going out to a seeded player. However, our top lady, Heather Watson, won her second round match quite easily and played some superb tennis. Her 'prize': a match tomorrow against Serena Williams.

Today again brings us Rafa, Andy, Roger; all three of them actually have tough opponents, so there is the potential for an upset in any or all three matches. Also playing, in their second round matches, are some of the other players I am particularly interested in in their second round matches - so hopefully another good day of tennis.

As well as Andy, Britain has two other men playing in the singles: James Ward and Aljaz Bedene. Both of them have a chance, James more than Alijaz, but we'll see. It would be lovely to end the day with more than just Andy (okay, yes, I am assuming) through to the third round.

Unlike a lot of the UK which experienced its hottest day of the year thus far, today we have it. Now in the grand scheme of things 24 (76) I know is nothing, but for me it is far too hot. So fans are going, windows are open, water is iced, clothing is light and loose and I plan to do nothing except watch tennis. Okay, so that's what I've been doing since Wimbledon started, but today will be even more so *g* Poor J *evil grin*
