Wimbledon R1: Žemlja def. Lacko 6-4 3-6 7-6 (8) 6-4

Taking advantage of the LL, good win against Lacko, who has more experience on the grass.

Žemlja even managed to serve it out, which is not a very common thing.

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".

Great win for Slovenian. Grega is playing well last weeks and I'm sure he'll bite Monfils

Kavčič is a grass gimp and Žemljak has an aggressive game. He saved the break point when serving for it.

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".

Grega That was a mental giant performance
Third set tiebreak was crucial I think.

MONFILS / Bachinger NEXT!

I'm not a fan of Lucky Losers so I'm a bit disappointed about this.

Hopefully Monfils wins next round

Very good win for Grega. Got a very beneficial spot as a LL and took advantage. He may choke but he's also a good fighter, and mentally more put together than Lacko, so he winning the close final two sets is unsurprising.
