Wimbledon R1: Karanusic def. Horna 7-6 6-3 6-1

Nice win for Roko, that's his second win in Wimbledon. I thought he'll have troubles here as he usually does in GSs, but he closed it out nicely this time. Lopez/Dabul next

great job roko had many chances to win the first easier, but he pulled it out in the tb and then cruised does this get him into the top100?

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Expected win. I was surprised the first set was so close but Karanusic laid it down in the second and third sets.

It'll be very close; it depends on where the cut-off falls in terms of ranking points. With this win, Roko will have 446 points. With that many points, Roko would have been #101 this week. I don't see him beating Lopez in the next round so hopefully this will be enough to put him over the top.

Horna is focused in the doubles draw already.

Lucho there for the holiday.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
