Very professional performance from Mika. Won 5 straight points in the second set tiebreak down *2-4 and that is what sealed the victory. Served very well today.

Poor Ward. He was unlucky enough to face Llodra on a day where he didn't have a large bet on the upset.

Professional performance is really nicely put ;):p
Saw the first two and bits of the third set and imho Llodra was not playing well today. He was serving superbly, that kept him in the game as the rest of his game was not really there. His net game was poor by his actual standard (at least in the 2nd set) and he also made a lot of errors off the ground. Ward had a really good chance of taking the second set but couldn't break Llodra's serve and lost his focus when he was *4-3 up in the tiebreak, making two easy UEs. Llodra did what he had to, yes, but improvements will be needed. He has a very kind draw with Mello and Troicki/Lu next, could make the fourth round here, but will need to improve.

Classic British player except Murray. Can't deliver in Wimbledon - although he surely has a nice game, and suited for grass.
