Went three years ago. Had good weather then... Today was horrible. I couldn't watch Federer's match till the end due the rain. Don't think I'll ever go again, seen how dissapointing last few years were.. But let's see what surprise Wimbledon 07 gives us.

I've got court one tickets on Weds. Fingers crossed for Sun; Wimbledon really is the bestest place on earth - and the most depressing when it rains.

Oh, and come on Tim! What a match!

BBC HD wrapup of the day on now. Lovely jubbly. And we've got a clever old promo display at work about this today. Like a primitive Minority Report thing, you can wave your hands around in front of this big screen and it moves the content and starts playing a video if you stop moving it with a large thumbnail in view. Nifty.

C'mon Tim!

Tim henmans dads mad looking!!!!! :) Im a big hewitt fan actually even though people i no hate him for some reason. You have to admit hewitt matches are good especially when he was world mumber 1 for 2 years and won wimbledon.

I still like to see tim do well as he makes the event so much better.

It would be tense if both players were being really excellent, but it's just a bit embarrassing to keep watching them making mistakes. The only fun is seeing who makes the next awful shot.

Random (but true) summary from Tom Fordyce on the BBC website:

Henman Snr looks like the sort of chap whose definition of emotional contact with his son would be a handshake twice a year - once on his birthday, and once on Christmas Day.

A tad unfair but you could imagine Federer wrapping up two games against either of them in about three minutes.

Just as I say that, they start playing well. I should talk things down more often.

What the fuck's happened to the Wimbledon attire, anyway? Looks like a bunch of sailors took over.

And so Henmania will continue.

Fucking hell, he did it. I'm exhausted, and I was only listening to the radio.

Same here!

I think there must be a delay on the radio broadcast as Henman was getting ready to take his Match Point shot when someone in my team said 'Henman's just won!' :-/

What nonsense. There was some excellent tennis last night and today.

Bloody well played Tim !

Last nights game is probably going to be the best of the whole tournament, glad Tim won it as he has been very out of form and is against a much higher ranked and younger player. We know he cant win it but at least he has given the croud a fine game and progressed.

Tim's on third on Centre Court against Lopez today.

C'mon Tiger! Grrrrrrr! :angry:

;)

Hope he stays in the tournament as long as possible. Great for the fortnight to have a Brit in it.
