Wimbledon R1: Lu def. Robredo 6-4 6-4 6-1

Completely expected. Lu only lost 17 serve points. Last years' quarterfinalist into R2.

Hopefully Tommy didn't re-aggravate his injury and can do well on the clay post-Wimbledon.

Comfortable

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".

I can't understand why Lu is so much better on grass than the other surfaces, but that's the way it seems to be!

I support Andy Murray!
