Here we document the efforts during the grass court of lower-ranked British players - normally wildcards - who put up a 'brave' fight against higher-ranked opponents but ultimately of course lose.

1. R1 Queens - James Ward (def. by Kevin Anderson) 4-6 6-3 6-4

fixed that for you :lol:. For me this is the prime example of a serve-bot. The only reason he won a set, is because Anderson's level was very low and he visibly needed time to adjust to grass.

2. "Promising" (:lol:) Liam Broady defeated by Gilles Muller 6-2 6-1. No doubt, according to the British press, he gave a good account of himself and has massive potential.

Won't include Golding because he was beaten by another Brit - one of them inevitably had to win that match.

3. Jamie Baker, defeated 6-3 6-2 by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. But according to John Lloyd, there were "a lot of positives" out there for Baker :-)

Agreed, she could actually be top 30 one day :lol:

Our women are so much better than are men (Murray aside) :(

She from the colonies, that is good enough. After all, we count Murray, and he's Scottish! ;)
