    Raducanu looked miles out of her depth in that first set.

    Djokovic is different gravy. The boy he beat looked absolutely demoralised.

    Raducanu has struggled badly since winning the us open. Well beaten there.
    Winning that tournament was great for her profile and bank balance but think it came too soon and too easy for her.

    These * still shouting when players are about to serve!

    Standards have dropped dramatically at Wimbledon. I’d neuter the idiots!

    Same as the “in the hole” * at the golf.

    Im going to St Andrews for the golf, I’m taking a full arsenal of weapons with me to sort those * out

    Norrie is a good guy. It's his Dad that's more of a hun. Been having a really good season and won Indian Wells last year.

    In my opinion it definitely didn't come too easy for her, or too soon. Not too soon because every player wants to win a slam, so even if that ends up being the only one she wins she still managed one. Three qualifying rounds and then 7 slam matches to win it. She was the best player that tournament so deserved it. She hasn't found a consistency on the tour yet but her talent is clear to see for anyone who watche tennis outwith the slams. She's been pretty unlucky with injuries, picking up 5 in the past few months during matches. This is all pretty normal in terms of the trajectory of where a 19 year old should be in their tennis career, outstanding slam win aside.

    With Berrettini withdrawing, Nadal is the only legitimate threat to Djokovic winning the men's singles title this year, and I wouldn't bet on him against Djokovic on grass. Even the guys who did well on grass last year and might've had an outside chance (Shapavalov, Auger-Aliassime) are already out. Kyrgios has a strong grass game and appears focused, but I can't see him taking out Djokovic either, especially not over 5 sets, even with Kyrigios winning their only two meetings (on a HC).

    On the women's side, Ons Jabeur and Simona Halep are probably favourites now. Wanted to see Cornet get further but it wasn't to be.

    Expected Sinner to give Djokovic a good game but didn't expect this. Long way to go though.

    I want a Djokovic v Nadal final, even though I quite like Sinner.

    Not looking good for Sinner now. Want him to win it.

    Be boring as * seeing Djokovic winning it again.
