One of tghe commentators was mentioning that it was getting ridiculous the amount of time Nadal spends when serving. Play is supposed to be continuous and yet the umpires never seem to enforce the time rule.

Bolelli has a ******* ridiculous forehand. If Andy had that forehand he'd be a world beater. Obviously consistency is a problem for Bolelli but he hits so unbelievably hard on that forehand and some winners coming off it are amazing. Punching through Nadal with it. Come from 0-4 down to 2-4 with several BPs but Nadal holding on. His one-handed backhand really lets him down though.

Yep this has been happening for years. Him and Djokovic just constantly get away with it. They get the occasional warning yet continue to spend just as long between serves and the umpires never follow up on it.

Btw love your avatar, combined with the lovely weather right now (although it's supposed to be raining again later on this week) and watching RG on ITV has really got me into the mood for Wimbledon. Can't wait!

Rezzano just came from 1-5 down in the 2nd set TB to take it 7-5 vs Serena Williams. That was fun to watch. 6-4, 6-7 there, going to a 3rd set.

What is this umpire doing when I think of the noise Sharapova makes and Williams at times.
She is certainly a fighter

I'm no fan of the WTA, but THAT final game was stupendous entertainment.

Fantastic final game, was yelling at the tv so wanted Williams to loose it!

Wonder if Draper will be so enthusiatic and singing at the top of his voice when Andy wins a grand slam?
