Wimbledon 2010: Day 4

Day 4 hasn't been as interesting as the past few days so I guess it's good that I chose this day to go to Bath.

Tsonga took 5 difficult sets to beat his opponent, Alexandr Dolgopolov - now Andy Murray really doesn't have any excuse not to make the semifinals or even finals of this years Wimbledon - no pressure.

Besides that Rafael Nadal looked shaky in his 5 set win against Robin Haase - will neither Federer nor Nadal make the final? Now that would be a good final.

Of course the most interesting thing that happened today was the conclusion of the epic Mahut/Isner match in which Isner snatched it 68-70, I'd love if the games went into triple figures though! This just makes me like Isner even more, he's in and around my Top 10 favourite players at the moment. I don't think we can even discuss who was statistically the better player because both of them contributed a tremendous effort to even finish this match and therefore in the end the winner was the one who capitalised on the points needed.

Not much happened in the women's game either besides the favourites solidifying their dominance such as Serena Williams thrashing Anna Chakvetadze 6-0,6-1 and will next face Dominika Cibulkova who struggled pass Ayumi Morita - interesting fact, this is the first time Morita has made it past the 1st Round at a Grand Slam!

Some slight shocks occurred e.g. Daniela Hantuchova's loss meaning Sharapova looks set for a Serena clash. Svetlana Kuznetsova also fell out to Anastasia Rodionova. Jie Zheng, the 23rd seed also lost. But besides that nothing really interesting happened in the women's draw today.
