why is nadal just second on court after a ladies match, they should let him finish his match first, i know that nadal should finish the match yesterday, but they let federer play first to finish his match a couple days ago, i know it hard to make decisions for the order of play, but let first finish all the men 3 round matches, and start then the fourt rounds of the ladies, and play the first match on all the courts

Now that I think about it, a good reason for the AELTC to be more pro-active by playing sunday is because the 2nd monday at Wimbledon is particularly vulnerable in case of bad weather due to the high volume of potentially high quality ie long matches and there were already matches hanging over. Case closed!

I hope the All England club are supplying earplugs for the Sharapova/V.Williams match. I feel sorry for anyone who has to listen to their pathetic squealing. Bout time it was outlawed. If I was in the crowd, I'd start booing them. They'll soon stop.

Sharapova can squeal as much as she likes, it's a gorgeous, sexy sound. Venus is a different matter...

Top 5 totty time:

1) Sharapova
2) Ivanovic
3) Golovin
4) Hantuchova
5) Vaidisova

Felt sorry for Hantuchova last night, Venus could clearly run, but every time she walked she was limping and stretching - all mind games I say. And I thought she needed the toilet but when she was winning and on her serve she didn't need to go! Hope she loses in the next round.

I believe that Paszek can beat Kuznetsova today. I saw her play yesterday, and she looked amazing, it was nothing to do with Dementieva playing badly, she was just out-played. Unlike most players on the WTA, she actually can do more than just hit the ball really hard, and has a lot more to her game. Especially as Kuznetsova doesn't do too well here. I hope you allow us to see it on the red button, because it looks like an intruiging match. <ok>

I'm writing from cold, windy Winter's day in Perth, Oz. I'm on holiday this week & am waiting to see Hewitt play Canas. I'm hoping it happens before i go back to work, next week. I LOVE your commentary & wish I were there. Though, I think Perth might be warmer, atm. Oh, Sharapova is unwatchable, thx to those noises. Unwatchable....

I was all set for a quiet day working and reading the web updates from Wimbledon when i made the mistake of reading the first entry at 08:45. This triggered a fit of manic giggling and i think the rest of the day is doomed. Thank you.....

nadalfed, i agree. order should be in precedence of round, so the early round matches can get finished.

welsh steve- absolutely! there is no way i will be able to watch that match. the sooner they are both defeated the better.

Its definitely between Ivanovic and Kirilenko for the top spot, then Sharapova in third, then Hantuchova and finally Golovin.

I guess as 5 TT's go its pretty good but am I the only one with a crush on Henin? Should I go to specs r us!

Not a massive fan of Hantuchova.
Ivanovic or Kirilenko - 1 & 2
Golovin
Sharapova
Hantuchova or Vaidisova - 4 & 5

Out of current 'top' players. List changes dramtically if you have past & present and also those who are not high up in the rankings

Henin isnt too bad, just looks too much like Arjen Robben for my liking.

Saw an interview with Ivanovic last night, she seems a lovely lass.

Yeh but Shaza has a fair amount of money behind her so could treat you to nice things. Always wanted to go out with a rich bird. So the order:

1) Kirilenko - just because she is hot
2) Sharapova - fit plus well off
3) Ivanovic - cute
4) Golovin - sexy
5) Hantuchova - felt sorry for her last night

Great news that the Masters Cup is coming to London in 2009. How will the players feel about a season ending return to grass after months on US hard courts? Mr A Murray will be in his prime by then!

Jimbo, I feel like a weight has been lifted, knowing it's my eye's and not my taste in women is a comfort. Now how about getting some English lasses on the list!

I think they're probably all fairly well off.

For me...

Dokic not at Wimbledon this year, she'd be number one but without her...

Ivanovic
Kirilenko
Hingis
Hantuchova
Katie O'Brien

WhiteHartJoe, Dokic (post mole removal) is a beautiful sight. Having seen her live, she has the best body in tennis by a country mile.
