Does anyone know which courts will be televised? Last year there were 11 televised courts, if I remember correctly.

Probably all the courts with only 3 matches are no TV courts, but then I only count 10 TV courts which would be a shame...

Yeah, but that was clear since the end of Roland Garros that the top half starts!? Because the title defender's half always starts on Monday and since Nadal is the top seed it was clear a long time ago :confused:

Granollers - Fish tomorrow. No chance for Marcel. :sad:

I've never seen Fish on grass, don't know why. But his stats shows he's not that good on it, he never made it deep at Wimbledon. I think it'll be a tight match.

Winning Newport...That's not so impressing. He almost didn't have serious opponents.
But Queen's yes, i forgot, sorry. And just looked at his Wimbledon tournaments, he always was unlucky to get early Nadal, Gasquet or Djokovic.

Yeah, that was shit post by me. :o

Fish is actually pretty good on grass. Also Del Potro and Gasquet on court 18.:eek:

06-19-2011, 11:50 AM
If fish plays well he wins that match granollers is one of these players that can pressure top guys for half a set then he collapses seen it tons of times this year and as this is on grass i dont give him much of a chance to win.

The courts being shown on ESPN3 (which is available to some internet services outside the US) are:
CC
1
2
3
12
14
16
17
18
This at least means they have cameras so they can be shown elsewhere if someone has coverage/takes a stream from ESPN3.

hewitt had to dig real deep and came back from 2 sets to love and beat russell.

in the first round of wimbledon is always dangerous, remember hewitt v karlovic.

He will have absolutely 0 problems with Russell. Russell is TERRIBLE, he is a short, power-less baseliner with no serve. He wont win more than 9 games. Trust me on that.

6-3 6-4 6-2 and thats it...

I think if you were a top seed and designing the ideal opponent to face in R1 of a slam, it would basically be Michael Russell - someone who fights hard and will give you a good workout, but doesn't have significant weapons to beat you with. Betfair gives him a 1 in 60 chance of winning, which sounds about right.

I don't think he'll win so much games... I guess maybe 6 or so, but nothing more.
Hopefully this ends like at the AO, where he also had cakewalk early rounds and then lost in the QFs.

I'm not sure but I can't see it listed anywhere on the Wimbledon website, when in the past, they had started advertising it early. It is not even on the Videos section of the website.

Also, the Wimbledon Live website (which is not linked to anywhere, I just found it on Google) only refers to 2010.

Some of the Nadal fans in this thread are proving that fan manifesto (http://yourvolleyssuck.wordpress.com/2011/06/18/atp-stans-part-ii/) correct:
“Phantoms” are Nadal stans (often fangirls) who suffer from a Couvade-like syndrome, taking on some of Nadal’s own characteristics. These include:

False modesty to the extreme, often depicting Rafa as the underdog, no matter what the circumstances.
Severe belief in superstition, especially “jinxes”

Russell being any kind of threat to Nadal on grass or any surface :haha:

Monfils doesn't lose to guys he shouldn't and when he actually plays, he has good results consistently. Melzer and Verdasco had spurts where they played above their real levels. Monfils has been in and around the top 10 for like 3-4 seasons now.
