More waffle. No sign of the boat yet but we're getting random stats. First time the defending champions (male and female) are both seeded 1 since Sampras and Hingis.

You have to like Novak's sense of humour. Positively purring over Azarenko at every chance. Very Happy

I was just thinking that. I wonder what "Mrs" Novak wins (I don't know her name).

Women's draw first. Easy - Just hand Serena the trophy now and save Sharapova from another demolition.

Cheers Craig. I always suspect the worst for Andy, and that would be something like Raionic in R4, Berdych in the quarters, Novak in the semi... With a Dimitrov or someone of that ilk in the opening couple of matches.

Watson v Cadantu.

It's definitely winnable for Laura but she mustn't get carried away.

Schiavone's unseeded? Up against Kvitova, incidentally, and playing the winner of the Robson match next round.

Robson could face Schiavone in the 2nd Round (a repeat of Wimbledon last year if I remember rightly).

Indeed CC. Laura should have pasted Schiavone/CJ/Ozil that day but couldn't quite pull it off.

Watson has a very good chance of making R3 at least, Bartel the seed she's down to meet in R2, that's definitely winnable.

Robson has the winner of Schiavone/Kvitova if she gets past Oudin, that's certainly trickier, but then again we've seen she doesn't care too much for reputations...

Good challenges for Laura and Heather. Imagine entering the second week if a slam with 3 Brits still around?

Hoping for too much?

tough draw for Fed so far: Raonic, Tsonga (Gasquet) then Murray. Djokovic has a tough QF but much the easier semi (Wawrinka in R4). Murray with Simon a potential R4 opponent.

Monfils vs Dolgopolov first up, tasty Very Happy

Also interesting to note that all of the top 3 have far from straightforward first rounds (Matthieu for Djokovic, Paire for Federer, Haase for Murray)
