No it's not a record. In terms of recent(ish) history, Henman and Rusedski both made the quarter finals in 1997, which presumably means they both went out on the second Wednesday.

Inevitable is getting prolonged for Tim. Rains were saviour yesterday. What can one say about Lopez/Tim when Federer? " Well done mate, enjoy your time at the noose till it lasts!!! ".. I like Nadal this year. it would be great if he could stop Federer this year. It should fire up Federer who is fast running out of milestones to reach..

Henman seemed to of got his tactics right yesterday. Lets hope he can continue to show his henman spirit today!

I think henmans game is well suited to play lopez. his volleys and intuitive tactics should see him through agaisnt the spainiard. Even in the 2 games yesterday it was clear to see that tim is looking sharp with is immaculate service game and near break he will be in good mental shape and i think you can be safe putting money on henman winning today. <cool>

I am keeping tabs on Wimbledon from my home in Dubai, where it is 45 degrees and my glasses are steaming up every time I go outside. I would love a little rain. Unfortunately I cannot watch any live action this year as my dear wife changed our TV package and I've lost the tennis, cricket and baseball. Know any good lawyers.

If you live in Dubai I wouldn't worry, someone's probably mocking up a replica Wimbledon outside your front door as we speak, complete with robot facsimiles of the top players and gold thread nets.

Does anyone think that Tim is going to win today? I really hope he does, but I am finding it difficult to believe he will. Will someone convince me, please

Mr. Anonymous Dude that is providing the live text. Please can you keep us as up-to-date as possible on the Qureshi-Safin clash. It shouldn't take too much of your time...I can see Safin in tears after an hour or so. Please, please, please, I'd really appreciate it...

Hello all!

Just been reading through the comments made on day 3 after I left; there appear to be some very serious, cross, outraged tennis fans complaining about out top-totty watch yesterday...

Never mind, eh? Sharapova's back today!

I stopped so abruptly that an old woman walked into me as I was trying to look at a picture in the metro of a female tennis player with her skirt all over the place this morning...

Any attractive outsiders to keep an eye out for today?

Is there any reason why the matches can't start any earlier. Surely it wouldnt be too difficult to organise, and would mean getting some more tennis in before the rain.

Henman and Murray last year I think. I believe Henman played on Day Two and Day Four last year but I'm not 100% certain. That would mean he went out to Federer on day four.

There's also been a few years with random Brits reaching round two before going out so I'm sure one of them will have played on Day Four due to the draw or rain whilst Timbo progressed.

Young British girl O'Brien is currently playing Krajicek!

Know would she be a relative of Richard Krajicek who won Wimbledon back in the mid 90s!

I believe she is Toon although I can't remember how exactly. I've definitely heard it somewhere before and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that she's his daughter.

Right, I'll get the ball rolling then:

Katie O'Brien defies the 'rule' of British female tennis players by outshining Krajicek, although, it should be pointed out, Ms K is certainly no supermodel...

Hantuchova is the clear hottie up against Likhovtseva, althoughagain, her opponent provides weak opposition and personally I feel Hant is a little overrated. Great legs, not much else.

Tu? Not even really worth a mention, especially as she's sharing a court with the lovely Ana Ivanovic. Lovely stuff.

You're probably right there Clausus, but to settle the argument further, in 1998 Sam Smith made the 4th round (going out on the second Monday) and Henman made the semis, losing to monkey boy.

Does anybody actually enjoy watching doubles matches?

Surely the doubles tournament could be played behind closed doors so that fans don't have to sit through any of the tedious, repetitive and drama-free play and can concentrate on the singles action.

doubles matches should be played by a select group of female players only, under sprinklers and in high temperatures and thin white underwear.

Not to be overly critical but I'd fancy my chances against any Brit not name Murray or Henman and I haven't played since I was 18.

I think that IS being overly critical Clausus. Rest assured Bogdanovic may be no world-beater, but he is one of the top 100ish players in the world, which means that if you played him you probably wouldn't win a point.
