Wimbledon R1: Petzschner def. Robert 6-4 7-6(6) 4-6 2-6 6-4

Picasso saves himself from the hat trick of losses from 2 sets to 0 up.

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

He's already accomplished the hattrick :-)

Nothing more to achieve in choking terms, he's unchallenged there.

This would have been a horrible loss here on this surface, good on Picasso for hanging tough and grinding through and winning. But he sure needs to improve on closing out matches so to prevent these types of situations occurring as frequently as they have.

Not this year he hasn't.

As for choking terms when he does a Cyril Saulnier then let me know.

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

Much harder than expected, Picasso. Still, I think he fancies his chances against Kubot in the next round
