    Harold Mahony born Edinburgh won men singles Wimbledon 1896. So headline writers should be writing - First Scotsman for 117 years to win Wimbledon singles.

    It's that time of the year again... Wimbledon!

    Who's watching? I've tried following all of the GB entrants with interest.

    First one up yesterday was Liam Broady against Matosevic. He was two sets down and then pulled it out of the bag to win 3:2. Very good game of Tennis to watch.

    Started watching a bit of Konta against Sharapova but she was getting battered and then had to do some work.

    Didn't see Naomi Broady play so can't judge but she's another who was beaten.

    Heather Watson was a set down last night, had a terrible start but managed to tie it before the game was suspended due to bad light. Looking forwards to seeing how that one pans out today.

    Got a stream going from the BBC website at the moment and watching Kyle Edmund against Alexandr Dolgopolov. It's a bit like watching Broady yesterday, Edmund has gone two sets down and seems to have a shoulder problem. He's started well in the third set but Dolgopolo has broke his serve so it's 4:2 to the Ukrainian as I type.

    Laura Robson and Andy Murray are in action later too.

    And Alexandr Dolgopolov wins in 3 sets. Think that shoulder injury was too much for Edmund which was a shame.

    Laura Robson is up next!

    Turned over to Brydan Klein who is up against Andreas Seppi on court 18. He's losing by two sets already as well. Not a good day for the Brits so far!

    Broady was a great match yesterday.

    Nice start for a Brit on day 1. Crowd was loving it.

    Definitely was. I'd missed the first set so I tuned in to see the comeback take place.

    Don't think I like the look of this Klein player. Attitude seems all wrong for me.

    Hawkeye's use needs to be more strictly monitored. Discuss.

    Has a margin of error of +/- 3mm but it being used as infallible for decisions of less than that.

    Was only banned in the new year.

    She's made a mistake but it's nowhere near as bad as it sounds

    Massive oversight from her management team not to look into the new list of banned substances that was released on the 1st January though. Surely they would have known she's been taking a certain drug for 10 years and thought to double check the list for it?

    murray now the number one tennis-er on tge planet

    i have novac to win his group in the tournament in a decent bet but i dont really know a lot about the sport at all.
    ivan lendl griup


    didnt know any of the other three players in the group and it was a 1/2 shot so i imagine he should progress handily enough.


    tennis fans here though, is murray likely to beat him if they both progrees to the finals stage?

    Anybody watching the Wimbledon?

    Murray has a bit of a hip injury but no trouble in getting to the 3rd round so far. I caught Heather Watson's game yesterday in which she won the first set 6:0, impressive stuff. She's equalled her best run ever at Wimbledon.

    Laura Robson very disappointing in going out in the first round on Monday too - Gather she's lost a lot of confidence and form though after injuries.

    Not really watching but working from home tomorrow and next week so will do then

    Will pop to Wimbledon for beers next week as well on Wed I think - sounds like they have massive screen in central wimbledon somewhere. The pubs/restuarants are brilaiint for these 2 weeks and "fanoir" EVERYWHERE to look at


    Watson and Robson built up too much - lot of pressiure for youn un's

    How well has that Konta done though to get Top 10 in the world

    Sounds good, Redders. Wouldn't mind doing that myself in the future sometime just to partake in the atmosphere!
