Hopefully the first of 2 disappointments for the Italians on English soil today.

Djokovic is just a machine, I'd never be more certain of a player who's 0-40 down on serve fighting back to hold. Berrettini looks great though, he'll definitely be back at the sharp end of Wimbledon. Felix Auger-Aliassime, the young Canadian, looks like he has a bright future as well. He got knocked out by Berrettini but beat the number 4 seed Zverev in the preceding round.

Not a huge tennis fan, but watch a bit of Wimbledon. Completely passed me by this year.

Berrettini was very impressive, especially in the first set where he could have been crushed

Satellite dish, wife watches TV. If she wasn't around, I probably wouldn't even own a TV :)

It's almost like it's an on-demand service for the stuff the BBC broadcasts through its TV channels.

I enjoyed the Wimbledon highlight reel of non Tennis highlights. Ball boys catching the ball, champagne bottles popping, etc.

Novak is probably the best player ever. Thought that a while ago. He'd already be ahead if he hadn't got disqualified for a bit and covid hadn't happened and that's in an era when there were 2 other greats.

Not saying there won't be a better player ever. Things move on. But for now, best there's been.
