Ferrer must be hurting, missing out 8 break-point chances in the first set and then lose the tie-break.
Still, not over yet.
Vamos Ferrer!

The bulldog takes the 2nd tie-break!

Shireling , 7/1/13 2:43 PM

3rd set in the bag, with a bread-stick to go, and 3-0 on the fourth, things are looking good for Ferrer.
Vamos David!

Shireling , 7/1/13 3:23 PM

Vamos David, Vamos Murray!

Lisciki serving for the match against Serena....this will be the biggest upset of Wimbledon'13 if it happens.

atul1985 , 7/1/13 4:15 PM

Unbelievable, this is one hell of a crazy wimbledon.

atul1985 , 7/1/13 4:19 PM

great David! :)
atul1985 , Serena going out is a shocker but I don't think it's a bigger upset than Fed going out in 2nd round (since he was the defending champion).
About Nadal I don't talk since he alredy went out in 2nd round last year.

Shireling , 7/1/13 4:42 PM

atul , not really..i thot lisciki had a good chance to beat serena and she is the only player who can beat serena on grass at the moment because of ths strength of her service games and power hitting... federer's exit was a bigger surprise and even rafa's..

vamosrafa , 7/1/13 4:46 PM

@Shireling - Serena was the defending Champion too and THE super hot favourite to win...Fed was just one of the favourites. Considering this, I believe Serena's upset is the biggest one

atul1985 , 7/1/13 4:47 PM

Verdasco two sets up.
Vamos Fernando!!!
DelPo just brok Seppi and Murray managed to hold a tight first game.

Shireling , 7/1/13 4:48 PM

When Daveed is playing the refrain 'it's not over till the fat lady sings' has never been more true. Once again it was his stamina that won the day

That final set between Williams and Lisciki was the ultimate cliffhanger.

The seeds are going down like nine-pins.

ed251137 , 7/1/13 4:52 PM

Kubot beats Mannarino ... (who are these people? lol)
You have a point atul1985, I still think Fed going out in 2nd round is bigger though but maybe it's because I don't watch much WTA

Shireling , 7/1/13 4:52 PM

one of the semifinalist on Murray's side is going to be a totally new name

atul1985 , 7/1/13 4:56 PM

Nothing personal, but am happy the seeds are falling like nine pins. It makes Rafa's ouster look normal.

rafaisthebest , 7/1/13 4:56 PM

Verdasco has started to lose it a bit

Shireling , 7/1/13 5:07 PM

Is that it for today or still more to come...:-)

phoenix , 7/1/13 5:08 PM

i hope delpo beats ferrer..really respect ferrer for his effort and hardwork but he does not stand a chance against Big 4 when they are playing well...delpo would have a decent chance to defeat djokovic

waiting for haas vs djo ! that could be a cracker...grass surely favors haas more..djo the clear favourite though but I am counting on tommy to give us a really good match ! djo in 4

vamosrafa , 7/1/13 5:27 PM

Delpotro's injured. I'm not sure he's gonna be much of a challenge to anyone with a slightly better serve than Seppi......*whistle*

deuce , 7/1/13 5:35 PM

kudos for Verdasco.
Ferrer is also slightly injured (ankle)

Shireling , 7/1/13 5:43 PM

Juan Martin is hurt. The ankle is okay but the knee is still bothering him from that spill in the earlier round match.
I feel bad for him. He says he's going to do everything he can to heal in the next day in a half but Ferru will try to make him run.
