    i do believe that his style of play has burned his body out way faster than Roger or even Nole.
    And I think it's more than a rumor. He has been suspicious for a long time.

    I'm getting to see Serena vs. Venus (I'm hoping for an awesome match here), Murray vs. Karlovic, and Federer vs. Agut. Woohoo!

    I think it'll be the fifth or sixth time for me...yes, I'm spoilt! Will try and get some good pictures, might be sat near the back (but no bad seat in Centre Court really).

    The atmosphere at Centre Court is amazing! You will have a great time.

    HWBL, I don't know about the red button or if you can get i-player or something. Maybe You Tube?

    I was front row yesterday, absolutely fantastic! Saw lots of my steward friends and all of them were so lovely and sweet to me, as they were last year. I need to get a proper camera and stop using my iPhone as it never captures how close I am and gets all grainy with the zoom. Here a few shots from the day:

    Serena Williams

    Great 5-setter Gasquet against French Open winner Wawrinka. Gascuet (sp) won. I have to say he has the weirdest build: huge head, long neck, narrow shoulders, short legs, but man, he went for every ball and played some crazy unbelievable tennis. Wawrinka wasn't playing bad, until the last few points. Thrilling match.

    I thought after Gasquet bottled it when he had the chance to serve for the match the momentum had shifted and it was all Stan the Man. So happy Gasquet won, he's been around an age and he deserves a little more credit for tightening up his game. His backhand is flawless. I'm showing everyone the pictures of him I took in 2013 now, like a proud mama.

    Saying that, I'm glad he's not my son as he's gorgeous and I wouldn't mind giving him a post-match rub down...

    Just because, "awwwwwwh!":

    It's pretty amazing. Serena is almost 34 and she is probably going to win the seasonal grand slam. I know the women's field is rather weak right now. But seriously, is it as weak as it looks? She's toying with people. I honestly think she isn't going as hard in the first sets this year. She seems to kick it into gear afterwards tho.

    Lance Armstrong would be proud.

    I also do not give a fuck what anyone thinks of what i'm saying.

    None of it looks right. The drug testing in this sport is horrible.

    Garbine put up a spirited fight though. I don't think Serena was pretending to be nervous. It was a good match!
