Just got home from my day out at Queens. Was a brilliant day...

Got there, went to look around the practice courts, as im walking towards them, Murray is walking away, towards me. I stopped him to say good luck for the match today and he said thank you very much. That was awesome. He was with his big entourage.

So I went to the practice courts and watched Nadal hit some balls. Then watched Djokovic practice with Habrty. Said hello to Rafa when he finished. Then followed Jamie Murray and Max Miryni to their practice, where i nicked one of Jamie's shanked backhands match ball!  Bumped into Bjorkman and Hewitt on my way to Court 1, which is where I had my ticket.

Started to watch the Gasquet Ancic match. Gasquet's backhand is sooooooo good up close! Then the rain came, and with it, my big chance. I went over to centre court and watched Andy and Gulbis hit in the drizzle. When the play was suspended and the steward lifted up the rope, the people came out, and i snuck in. I was able to stay in centre court, shifting around different seats right up until the end of the first set in the Nadal match. Loved it.

All in all a great day for me, had an absolute blast.

Pictures up soon.

Nadal is not really showing any emotion against Karlovic, but deep down he must be pissed off.  He's only won 3 points on Ivos serve and Ivo has 6 aces.

edit: make that 4 points.

Set point for Ivo, I think Nadal might be tanking but Karlovic has played pretty well.
