What an amazing day of tennis

I'd just like to say I have been glued to the TV ever since play began today - it's been epic tennis match following epic tennis match.

Andre taking his final bow in an emotional defeat

Marat and David fighting each other to a near-standstill until the whole match swings on a missed dropshot.

Gasquet weathering a very tricky Swiss by the name of Chiudinelli

Hewitt ruthless against Djokovic

Murray weathering hurricane Gonzo to win in 5

Berdych taming Tursunov in 5 tough sets

Roddick vanquishing Verdasco in another tough 5-setter

Nadal edging Moodie in three very tight sets

On the women's side, Serena looking awesome against Ivanovic and Mauresmo pulling out a very gritty win in 3 sets over Santangelo.

One amazing day of tennis

And the night is still to come

:worship: to them all - NOW it feels like the tournament is underway after all that rain.

It's something of an overdose following the complete absence of play yesterday, but there has certainly been much quality and drama today. I just hope that the weather doesn't take a turn for a worse again now that, as you say, the event has really begun.
