Evans only there to collect the paycheck. I'd have thought he wanted to please his fans.


[deleted]

Berrettini is now out, due to positive Covid test. 😏


Pj0sk

What's up with the bad sound of players hitting the ball? Sounds not as clean and with alot of echo?


duma31

Wimbledon haven't even uploaded their usual 2 minute highlights videos on YouTube. What a joke.


Nabucodonosor89

Djokovic trained with Cilic a few days ago... https://twitter.com/darren_cahill/status/1539965450075127813


Regular_Antelope4137

new to this but what is the routine for suspended play, play first, play middle, play last?


Plane_Highlight3080

They play second usually


thcm123

I’m watching my DVR of the ESPN coverage from today. Jesus Christ, they open with Johnny Mac and his rant. I miss TC already.


[deleted]

OMG, yes! Brad Gilbert and someone else are commentating the Dimitri/Johnson match. 👍🏼


OverturnRoeVsWade

I don't know what he said but the best commentator is Robbie by a mile.


Muffinfeds

What did Old man Mac say?


Cthulhu_awaken

Oh no I won't be able to watch Rafa today because of work. So sad. . .


MoreDblRainbows

Venus supposedly teaming up with Jamie Murray for mixed. Going for that gs in mixed.


IvanMalison

Wasn't swiatek supposed to open center court?


Nabucodonosor89

She will do it on day 2. The last Wimbledon champion from ATP (Djokovic) did it on day 1.


Miss_Medussa

Will there be highlights for each match? Does Wimbledon post them? Tennis tv?


olearyan42

Espn has great coverage of Wimbledon. I’m In the US btw


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Wimbledon. Tennis tv doesn’t have the rights to the slams


Aniruddh31

Rafa has some supernatural ability to get out of hard draws, I bet he's going to use it for FAA as well tomorrow


Meecs18

Been massively disappointed by FAA so far in the grass court season and he couldn’t really have a tougher first round opponent than Cressy. Could see an upset.


madisonrees

he was definitely underwhelming but semifinal loss then QF loss isn’t anything to scoff at


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Cressy is a nightmare first round, up there with Kyrgios and Draper.


Aniruddh31

Yeah...I like FAA but hoping he loses before playing Rafa


MidnightIsland212

Look at me having Hurcakz win Wimbledon and lose R1 🤡


Avalanche_1996

It happened to many. I don't know when/if there's his time to shine :(


[deleted]

I know; I so wanted him to win, too!


jasonfrey13

So now that Rafa is like completely healthy (he said it’s the first time in almost 2 years he’s pain free when he wakes up, can practice pain free, etc), do you think that changes the potential for where he and Djokovic end up? Djokovic can’t travel to Australia or the US for the foreseeable future, and Rafa is playing about as good of tennis as we’ve ever seen and on top of it he’s healthy….like idk what to even think anymore about Rafa’s potential at this point


d1ngal1ng

> Rafa is playing about as good of tennis as we’ve ever seen This is obviously not true.


jasonfrey13

Lol okay? I’ve watched Rafa pretty damn closely since about 2004. This current Rafa is about the most well rounded he’s ever been in terms of offense, defense (with his slice), serve has come back to form, volleys are tremendous. Maybe he’s not always as flashy, but he can shift his tactics mid match when he needs to better than he ever could. He’s also as close to a calendar slam as he’s ever been, so idk what you’re talking about regardless


Explodingcamel

2008 Rafa wasn’t going to 5 with FAA at the French Open


SaysYou

Well yeah, FAA was like 8.


stevie_mann

Lmao, I liked this one too.


Explodingcamel

I blew air out of my nose


SaysYou

Well thanks. Doesn’t seem to be a very popular, but I also enjoyed my dumb joke. *Joke was at -4 when I made this comment.


jeffwingersballs

We will have a different perspective on both in two weeks.


jasonfrey13

I guess so, but I don’t really see how Wimbledon is all that telling. Regardless of the results, Djokovic would still be down 1 slam at best and can’t even play the next 2 slams coming up which Rafa would be a co favorite with Medvedev most likely. And then Djokovic would return to the French where Rafa is a heavy favorite if everyone is healthy


jeffwingersballs

Smh that someone can't see the value of a grand slam


jeffwingersballs

We're all going to have different takes on this. For me, either one winning this slam is a game changer in terms of legacy.


SmoothLettuce

Don’t see how this does much for Novak’s legacy besides keep him in touch with Rafa in the slam race. Same goes for Rafa unless he goes on to win the calendar slam.


jasonfrey13

How so? It’s like the weirdest Wimbledon of all time, turned into a pseudo-exhibition and banning some of the best players haha. I don’t think it really means all that much tbh. It does for Rafa in terms of year grand slam I guess


jeffwingersballs

> banning some of the best players There's only three relevant players that are barred and none have made a semifinal at Wimbledon. Unlike the Australian Open, the defending champion is allowed to defend their title. > I don’t think it really means all that much tbh. It does for Rafa in terms of year grand slam I guess Well, it either matters or it doesn't. Sounds like you want it both ways for the cope if Rafa loses. The best grass players are playing for millions for a. championship that will last forever. Calling it a "pseudo-exhibition" is grossly underrating the event.


jasonfrey13

I think we just disagree lol. Which is fine. And I’m not even a Rafa fan, I’m a Fed fan. I just don’t see how this is THAT important in the grand scheme of things. If Djokovic wins, he gets to 21, which is still behind Rafa. If Rafa wins, he’s at 23 and is pretty damn likely to get the calendar grand slam….so I think it’s objectively more of a big deal for Rafa in terms of history I guess it’s a big deal for Novak but more in terms of just staying close in the race especially given the fact he can’t even make up any more ground until May 2023 at a tournament Rafa owns


[deleted]

We’ll put! 👍🏼


jeffwingersballs

It's so hilarious I think winning Wimbledon and getting to 21 slams has an impact. Hahahahhahahaa. HILARIOUS!


jasonfrey13

Oh I agree it has an impact. But you said “game changer in terms of history” which I just don’t see at all. Had Djokovic won the FO then that’s a diff story


jeffwingersballs

I'll just say this as far as our disagreement goes, I had Djokovic in front of Nadal before the French Open. I don't use the slam count alone to make up my mind about who is the greatest.


HTMListerine

Does Murray necessarily beat Isner? I'm not sure


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Isner is a glass cannon. If his serve fails he’s screwed, and Murray just needs to break him once per set.


jeffwingersballs

One does not simply break Isner's serve.


Meecs18

Not necessarily but it’s 8-0 in the H2H


NeptuneGraffitti

no hate to isner but i’m wanting a deep run for murray so i hope he wins


frog_enby1001

Sorry if this is against the rules, but could someone DM me a link to watch Wimbledon on ? 🥺🥺


mickstep

No need for subterfuge, get a VPN to the UK and use the BBC coverage.


[deleted]

[удалено]


mickstep

Yeah BBC iplayer


Bobbin101

Would’ve liked to see wawrinka have a good run but that’s okay. He really played against himself in that third set


Big_booty_ho

Wimbledon is a ghetto grand slam in a white Gucci belt. Every year the scheduling is a hot mess


AlfaG0216

Does anyone know much about the lighting at wimby? Can the lights only turned on when the roof is fully closed? Not like at the other 3 slams where the lights can be on without closing the roof?


surgebinder16

so why exactly do they stop play near 11pm anyway? they have lights... and a roof. Edit: [Found it... curfew due to noise lol](https://www.essentiallysports.com/the-reason-behind-wimbledon-championships-curfew/)


snahtanoj

The curfew is due to the planning permission for the roof being subject to a condition that does not allow the temporary plant related to the function of the roof to operate after 11pm. **Temporary plant** > Temporary plant would be located south-west of the Centre Court during the Championship periods. The plant will only be utilised during the Championships. It would be placed behind the indoor tennis facility on land otherwise used for Championship car parking. The temporary plant would consist of 10 air cooled electric chillers, 6 generators, 2 oil storage tanks and a generator switch pump room which will require a total of 1140m2. This would supply chilled water, by a network of pipes to a pump room in the northern façade of Centre Court which will then be pumped to the 14 air handling units housed within the new fixed roof of the Centre Court. One of the 6 generators provided in the temporary plant will supply back-up power for the roof and sports lighting if necessary. A masked green acoustic screen will surround the temporary plant both to diffuse any noise and to ensure that the temporary plant is not visible. **Planning condition** > The temporary plant hereby approved shall only be operated during the Wimbledon Tennis Championship period other than for testing immediately prior to the championships, and shall not be operated prior to 0800 hours or later than 2300 hours or one hour after the finish of the last match on any day, whichever is the earlier. Reason for Condition: In order to protect the amenities of nearby residents. https://democracy.merton.gov.uk/Data/Planning%20Applications%20Committee/20040624/Agenda/2575.pdf


fujimouse

It's in a residential area and Britain doesn't really have a culture of late nights unless you're out on the town getting hammered. Totally normal rules here.


sharkhuh

It's kind of crazy that such a huge sporting event is beholden to a curfew


[deleted]

I know; it brings in a ton of money to the area. So, the neighbors can’t put up with noise for two freaking weeks?! An antiquated rule. 😏


aweap

There's a curfew.


shyaminator96

That was excellent stuff from Heather at the end


aweap

Looks like they're stopping Heather's match as well...


krirkrirk

So Wimbledon doesn't do highlights anymore ?


thatsushiaddict

You can watch it on the Wimbledon app


krirkrirk

Thanks!


JackMW28

Why’d ESPN go off the air??? They’re still playing…. 🤨


jeffwingersballs

ESPN is gonna espn. There coverage was an improvement over previous years.


Eleonoranora

I am manifesting Angie Kerber winning Wimbledon again


redmilk7

Rafa posting drunk-happy posts like crazy XD


RetroClubXYZ

Well done Andy. Watching Heather now and she's having a tough time. Still think she's hot though.


rudibowie

I didn't see Andy Murray's match. I just watched a highlight video of his best shots. Am I imagining it or was Andrew Cotter commentating on Andy Murray's first round Wimbledon match?


BiscuitsLeGuin

He was yeah. Him and McEnroe and an Australian guy called Todd Woodbridge whose name I vaguely recognise but I don’t remember who he is


Charlie_Runkle69

Damn you make me feel jurassic lol. He was a very successful doubles player and won a ton of slams with Mark Woodforde. They were called 'the woodies".


BiscuitsLeGuin

Oops 😂 and ahhh cool


chespiotta

JUST CAME BACK TO SEE GOAT VAN RIJTHOVEN won his Wimbeldon R1 match in straight sets. I am very happy at the moment.


ProfessionalDress476

Mladenovic might have lost but she definitely has the "winningest" outfit on court


[deleted]

she's a doubles queen anyway. singles is just practice for her.


[deleted]

cilic is OUT due to COVID. rafa's 1/8 section now has a lucky loser replacing cilic. #21 seed van de zandschulp is now the most likely 4R opponent for rafa.


OliverDMcCall

Nadal is very lucky with draws these days, his only pre-QF threat taken out by a virus. It's a shame, that could have been a good match.


sharkhuh

> Nadal is very lucky with draws these days Nadal just had to go through world #26, #9, #1, #3, and #8 in the last GS....


BlueJinjo

Imagine saying Nadal getting "very lucky in his draws" when the guy had Djokovic , alcaraz/zverev as his qf and sf matchups at the last major. He also had a rough draw on paper at AO that was still rough in practice.. (shapo instead of zverev was still tough , berritini, Medvedev) Memory of a goldfish


[deleted]

good for rafa. his AO and FO draws were shitty. he had to play either zverev or shapovalov (who always plays well against rafa) in the AO QF. i hope this draw collapses like 2017 USO. it would be his first easy grand slam draw of the year.


kingmakyeda

You absolutely cannot call Nadal lucky with his draws. Did you not see his RG draw?


Charlie_Runkle69

Of the big 3, Nadal definitely has had the hardest draws overall I'd say.


AlfaG0216

Are they gonna finish Watson’s match or will it be suspended ?


SentenceSwimming

They have until 11pm curfew


ProfessionalDress476

They will finish its under the roof


Elonmuskishuman

Maybe


shyaminator96

what channel is showing the remaining wimbledon matches today in the US?


jeffwingersballs

ESPN for live coverage. Tennis Channel for the replay.


mickstep

For the 100th time, just get a VPN to the UK and use the BBC sport website.


shyaminator96

Lol I have been using that for years. But it doesn't cast onto my tv so it's not as good as watching on my tv


swervithan

They were asking for a us tv channel not a website


swervithan

Espn3


shyaminator96

wow so it's not even airing on tv?? the state of tennis streaming in the us is ridiculous


jeffwingersballs

Some cable providers have espn 3 through cable box. Don't know about the current availability.


swervithan

Tennis coverage is ridiculous in the us, but it’s been on all day and there’s only one match still being played with unseeded players so I mean in this instance it’s not crazy


shyaminator96

I remember when they used to say "from first ball to last ball" on espn tho.


FlyReasonable6560

Lmao Fucs complaining a while ago about losing QF points yet here he is crashing out R1, cmon bro


[deleted]

Absolutely demolished too. Big clown look for Fucsovic.


ProfessionalDress476

There was nothing at stake


kohavi

I'm quite pleased to see Ivan Lendl back in Andy's box


thombo-1

Can't imagine how gutting it would be to lose such a lengthy and closely-fought first set


Elonmuskishuman

Heather too busy caring about her eyelashes


Big_booty_ho

Heather girl how can you see through those curtains?


FlyReasonable6560

What did Duckworth do I couldn’t watch the match.


ProfessionalDress476

A Duck


raysofdavies

Good lad Andy, heard it was my birthday and decided to win for me, what a king


Lucian_98

eat a cake bro


ellla275

Happy Birthday 🎉


simfoe

Jack Duckworth would’ve been better


mickstep

Vera would have bossed that court.


calumm99

If Andy loses they need to get Sue to do the on court interview, would hit me right in the feels


jchristpriv

I hate being a Fognini fan


Alex_Sander077

Any Andy win at Wimbledon I treasure like he just won the title. We don't know how many wins he has left on this court.


MissLola21

I admire the strength of Heather Watson's fake eyelashes. They're sticking with her through thick & thin.


Prendy

Murray is balding fast, fuck


AliAskari

Nah he’s been balding for years. Just more noticeable because he’s cut his hair short.


NisceD

SIR Andy Murray


pineapplepubes

So, Duckworth.... Bit of a dick no?


OliverDMcCall

More like Dickworth.


ProfessionalDress476

Duckworth gotta be Duck-worthy


Apprehensive-Low4044

Heather why you hitting 61mph second serves 😭😭


White_Nothing

Duckworth salty as fuck. Glad Murray destroyed him.


blackb0xes

I enjoy Duckworth's saltiness.


OliverDMcCall

Dickworth is kind of a tool.


11thDimensi0n

What an absolute bizarre challenge lol


thombo-1

Duckworth seems really mad at Andy for a whole bunch of stuff that Andy never actually did


Big_booty_ho

How come the Watson match hasn’t been suspended? I thought only center court had lights and a roof


mickstep

Nope court one has had lights and a roof for several years.


AliAskari

Court 1 also has lights and a roof


SmellyFartMonster

Court One does too now.


shitsoutofstomach

Court 1 has one now too.


RyJ94

Duckworth seems like a massive prick


TokyoAJ

Andys new haircut is a bit of an L he should keep the hat on


GamamJ44

Why's Duckworth so triggered lmao. Such a nasty handshake after the unneccesary challenge. Also, is Murray limping?


[deleted]

andy has a bad knee due to a genetic deformity, similar to rafa's foot. one of his knees has a strange kneecap. called bipartite patella they aren't exactly life-threatening deformities but they make playing a sport professionally incredibly painful


Eraser92

He lost his head after the 2nd set. Seemed very rattled


WeirdWorld42

If Murray plays this well, I don't see anyone beating him at Wimbledon this year. So Good!


[deleted]

murray plays john isner followed by sinner followed by alcaraz/otte, LMFAO this is all BEFORE the QF


WeirdWorld42

And they all play Murray, a two time Wimbledon Champion. At Wimbledon, He is not in danger, He is the danger!


Prendy

How many pints in mate?


BreizhDre

He just lost a set to Ducksworth


TokyoAJ

it was his first set after the queens injury, djokovic was also a bit rusty and lost a set


deatry27

And Djokovic dropped a set to Kwon


schroefdraad

Duckworth why??? Why not just play the point. What a brainfart


bekkahthecactus18

Get in there Andy 🥳


simfoe

Lmao what a shit way to end


shegotofftheplane

Weird end to the match


throwaway739299292

Duck worth bro dude wtf


BreizhDre

Well that was dumb from Ducksworth


_tyrannosauruswrekt_

What an awful challenge, dude just wanted to go home


SummerBabee

The fuck was that duckworth


TokyoAJ

James a bit of a cold handshake there


Commercial_Comet

Weird end there haha


jambo_007

Some epic chokes in the watson korpatsch game


OliverDMcCall

Looks like Murray's worth more than a duck after all.


Theferael_me

I fear Heather Watson's fake eyelashes are affecting her vision.


studiousmaximus

mury goat breaking exactly when he needed to!


White_Nothing

Duckworth lol


simfoe

Lmao I think the crowd have been on the sauce since 12pm


tigrefacile

Hewitt during the first set: the man your mum left your dad for. Hewitt now: your dad after mum ran off.


OliverDMcCall

Duckworth gifted that break away, should be game over now.


calumm99

Always forget how much I miss the commentary duo of Andrew Cotter and John McEnroe.


TokyoAJ

LETS GO ANDY serve this one out please


OliverDMcCall

That was an amazing challenge by Murray.


limeinator123

Since when is duckworth using a pure strike?


TNipper

Looks like Pure Drive with a white Wimby paint job


thebullshitrussian

centre court sound acoustics are like a bullet.. definitely my favorite in tennis along with arthur ashe which is pretty satisfying as well


limeinator123

Kwons shots earlier especially


Rac3318

I’m a bit biased, but the first day of Wimbledon is the best day of the tennis season.


schroefdraad

Didn't realize this but fognini lost to a dutch player in every major so far this year. 1R Griekspoor- 2R Botic-1R Griekspoor. Now he just has to lose to Botic in the US open 2nd round for symmetry


hojbjerfc

This is false, I was at that match vs Botic and he lost to an italian that day 😉


Mysonking

Did Stan put up a good fight ? How was his shape ?


FreeKatKL

I’d say he put up a fight. He’s just rusty. But it was so good to see him.


Mysonking

Thx


hojbjerfc

So my Felix Auger Aliassime wimbledon champ agenda was still very strong until he entered Newport, my local tournament…all I am saying Felix is that 250 points for winning newport>0 for Winning Wimbledon. Come play the true grass slam


fingerdumbed

Have you ever played on the grass courts there? Always wanted to but haven’t gotten around to it.


hojbjerfc

Not nearly Good enough or Rich enough but I do intend to do so someday
