Thanks for your report, Rosie! Guess you had a fruitfull day at SW19.

"Halo effect" - benefit of being highly-ranked... Make the most of it while it lasts!

Well, at least he had you there, though not for the whole match; it should have encouraged him...

If Gaston wins the roller-coaster Labadze and if the opponent is our national no.1 (or 2?) Van Gemmerden, I will be able to watch the game on Dutch TV! Well, Fish seems to be "in water" again, though....

OK, Gaston's R2 match begins in a while. Vamos, Gaston @ grass!

16:47 (pm) Almost forgot that this Labadze was once a losing finalist at Wimbledon....
