Wimbledon 2017 - Day 02

Yesterday was an excellent day for my favourite players. Andy, Rafa. Petra & Jo all won and won pretty comfortably. Also, as well as them winning, two other Brits (Heather Watson & Aljaž Bedene also won). So all in all it was a jolly good day.

I saw both Andy and Rafa's matches and was pleased with how they both played. Andy had an hip injury worry coming into Wimbledon and whilst he was limping a bit between points his movement didn't really seem to be hampered during play. However, whether he can keep that up for another six matches I don't know. Despite having won Wimbledon twice, grass isn't Rafa's favourite surface and ironically it is the worst surface for his knees and he tends to be vulnerable during the early rounds. I was therefore delighted to see that he played as well as I have ever seen him play on grass.

The really big upset and shock of the day was Stan Wawrinka (the number three in the world and seeded five at Wimbledon). He was beaten in four sets by one of the up & coming new players Daniil Medvedev.

Today on the men's side we have Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, both should be good matches. Also playing is the ladies' top seed, a couple of Brits and a few more players I really like. So potentially it should be another very good day of tennis, because whilst none of my absolute favourites are playing several of my 'next level favourites' are.
