Wimbledon 2017

And it's back!

This could be quite an open year for lower seed players to make the last 8 given the injuries several top seeds are carrying.

Murray and Nadal both through comfortably.

Laura Robson out. Kyrgios retired hurt. No real shocks so far from what I've seen.

Karlovic is a monster.

All he has is a serve so if you can return he's screwed but he's hit over 40 aces in his first match so far.

Bedene is hanging in there though and I think he stands a decent chance of the next round.

Just doesn't have the game for grass unfortunately. He likes a lot of time to unleash on the ball, much like Thiem, and he's not great at the net either

Konta vs Vekic has been amazing!

Either are worthy winners.

Are the women still getting paid the same as men this year despite the fact that they play less tennis? Equal pay should mean equal games.

She's up against Venus Williams next and that will be a really tough game for Konta.

Williams is mentally very strong and won't get flustered.

Will be tough. Bookies have Konta as favourite for the tournament, not so sure about that personally but she's done remarkably well to get this far.

I think that performance against Vekic set her up really well going forward for the tournament.

I can't see Konta winning today as Williams will have to have an off day, which is rare.

Murray at one set each but going well in the third.

Murray couldn't have asked for an easier route to the final. Think Novak will win the tournament unfortunately.
