Andy Roddick lost to Yen-Hsun Lu of Chinese Taipei at Wimbledon yesterday, but we’d get over that quite quickly if our wife happened to be Brooklyn Decker. Incidentally ladies, we’re unmarried, unattached and available.

Prior to yesterday, the biggest name players to have crashed out of Wimbledon were 8th seed Fernando Verdasco and 11th seed Marin Cilic. Last night, 9th seed David Ferrer was also eliminated after a five set loss to Robin Soderling, but that was no huge surprise given that the Swede was seeded higher at 6th – and Ferrer is far stronger on clay than grass.
The biggest shock yesterday was Andy Roddick’s loss to Yen-Hsun Lu of Chinese Taipei (formerly Taiwan). The American made it to last year’s final but did not take control of the game with either his serve or his forehand – usually his two finest assets.
After struggling in their first few matches to capture their very best form, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal won convincingly yesterday, and now look close to being back to their best.
On the women’s side, Kim Clijsters won the battle of Belgium as she came from one set down to defeat compatriot Justine Henin. After playing a fairly atrocious first set, Clijsters upped her game admirably to seal a victory, and interestingly Henin has not beaten her fellow Belgian since the pair emerged from retirement. Despite Clijsters’ excellent form, Venus and Serena Williams remain the favourites for the title.
Finally, Andy Murray continues his excellent form at Wimbledon 2010. He is the only player on the men’s side not to have dropped a set so far in the tournament, and overcame the winner of the AEGON Championships at Queens Club, Sam Querrey, with aplomb. Murray will next face the exciting Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the next round, and will hope to up his first serve percentage. The rest of the British number one’s game continues to fire nicely.
Wimbledon tickets are on sale for all the remaining matches, with debenture seats for Andy Murray’s quarter final match on Centre Court tomorrow on sale from a price of £1422, with semi-final and final tickets also available for both men’s and ladies’ sides of the draw – as well as the doubles.
