Wimbledon R1: [14] Wawrinka def. Starace 6-3 6-4 6-4

Stan played a nice match and hit some wonderful backhands, flat and slice. Serve was clinical. He played more on the baseline than usual. Poto didn't play awfully and he came to net a lot, with average success, but Stan is just a level above.

Now, time for Simone to take out Swiss #2 in the second round.

Served well, dreadful volleying, backhands on at times off at times, same as return. FH was better than average though.

Bolelli no chance.

BP conversion abysmal as always, 2/15 until the last break I think. (and only off a Starace volley error )
