  My mother's uncle served with the Royal Scots and died on 5th July 1916 aged 25. She was born long after that of course, but his death plaque and the War Office telegram are still vivid mementoes of that terrible time.
Certainly the poems, particularly those of Owen and Sassoon, make for very grim reading.   What I've never quite understood, is that this was supposed to be the war to end all wars, yet 20 years after it finished we were into WW2.  A different type of war in many ways, but still a massive conflict, and the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and their consequences don't bear thinking about.

I think the delay might help Querrey.

Yep that's my thought also. Joker can play long matches and often wins the final set easily because his opponent is knackered. But tomorrow there can only be a maximum of 3 sets which should not faze big Sam. My gut feeling is if Joker gets through this match he'll win the tournament. So its all on Big Sammy boy. If he can at least get to tie-breakers in the remaining set(s) he's gonna win one of them!

The despicable Farage apart, that is just nonsense.

It does indeed make for very sombre reflection and I'm sorry you lost relatives there.  My only relatives, that I know of, who fought in WW1 were my maternal grandmother's two cousins, both of whom emigrated to Australia and fought with the ANZAC forces at Gallipoli.  Fortunately both survived.

Dan did quite well to pull back from 4-0 down in the 1st, but Fed took it 6-4.  At least this match is continuing under the roof.

So play on the outside courts is officially suspended for the day. Which surely increases the likelihood of play on Sunday because the Zverev-Youzhny 2nd round hasn't finished.

I'm unsure, a delay usually favours Novak. He looked abysmal in that second set though, what is up with him?

First set Querrey served really well and Djokovic didn't look too bad. But 2nd set after falling down a break Novak seemed to just give up and looked like he was waiting for the rain to come, don't think there is anything specific wrong with him. I don't think he particuralrly likes Court 1, was the same court where Anderson gave him so much trouble last year and Cilic the year before.

The reason I think Querrey will benefit is because it is so difficult to win 3 sets against Djokovic without a rest. By being able to come back tomorrow, his serve could be firing for just 1 set and that could be enough for him to win. Of course I still expect Djokovic to win, but I think at least 1 set will be close.

Hope you're right but think you might be wrong (unless there's an injury).  Same thing happened last year against Anderson.  I think Djoker in 5 sadly
Unfortunately I tend to agree.  Whatever the problem with Novak was, he was far from his best and looked like the last place he wanted to be was on a tennis court, but now he has a chance to regroup.  Still, there is hope, but only if Sam can come out firing on all cylinders and takes the 3rd.

Meanwhile Tara has gone out, losing the 3rd 3-6.  She's had a very good tournament though, so well done to her. clap

Querry wining 2 sets to love. Djokovic looks very flat and uninterested. Go Querry
