Wimbledon Rd. 2: Harrison leads Ferrer 7-6(6), 1-6, 6-4, 2-4*...play suspended

Been a high quality match, Harrison has the better grass court game but Ferrer is brutally tough as always. Should be an exciting finish tomorrow. Harrison is so impressive for a youngster, top 5 in his future.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Was following this in patches between the Tsonga-Dimi match and the quality looked amazing. Looks to be going to 5 sets and Harrison looks stunning while keeping up with Ferrer. Pure grinders paradise this.

Hopefully Ryan takes it in the 5th tomorrow.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

This isn't even The surface for Harrison. Impressive stuff, really proud how he plays in the MD, seeing him struggling in the qualies and only getting lucky. Just goes to show that you never know with the youngsters, their mentality and is bouncing quite alot. Hopefully Ryan can pull this off, but still is a great tournament for him, proved himself as a "All surface" player.

Harrison was really impressive. Break should be an advantage for him.

Break will be good for both guys. Ferrer can recharge his batteries, Ryan can work out new strategies. Expect David to wrap up the fourth set, but the fifth will be a cracking end.

Harrison has been really lucky with all these rain breaks, he couldn't handle Ferrer's consistency and speed for more than 1 hour. Rain might save him.

It will be very interesting to see each of their mentalities tomorrow. I think they both come out fighting but you never know.

Even if Harrison doesn't win this, I'm still impressed that he took 2 sets off of Ferrer.
