As we all know it is only a matter of time before it starts raining at Wimbledon. This year it has done quite well, day 5 is the first time this year the covers had to come out. I was aiming to start The Tennis Times on the first day of the Championships, but we got a little delayed.
That all being said there has been some great action already with Djokovic and Roddick going out of the draw in the early rounds.
I watched the Roddick match the other day and he seemed very lackluster. However the condition were quite poor and very windy, but thats taking nothing away from the consistency shown by Janko Tipsarevic. Djokovic on the other hand played quite well in his second round match again Marat Safin, but the sleeping giant that is Safin pulled a classic performance out of the bag. Safin has always had the talent, but with injuries and lack of focus, he has been the under achiever for a while now. That is taking nothing away from his level of partying, which ive heard he does throw the best parties!
