And NZ women beaten 1-0 by Brazil.

Yes found the BBC livestream myself.  Guess I'm just going to have to go with livestreams unless I can get the red button to work.

Fed still having problems ...but has just gone 5-3 up.  Mirka looking very uncomfortable.

And Fed finally takes the match.  Falla played brilliantly though.  So much for Fed's 'easy' draw!

Murray gets broken serving for the match, goes on to win - choker, bottler, got lucky, etc.
Federer gets broken serving for the match, squanders MPs, loses set then comes back to win - great comeback, brilliant mentality, king.

Rolling Eyes

Anyway, interesting little choke from Federer.

Anne doing well against Wozniacki!

It is an easy draw. Just like his Roland Garros draw was a walk in the park. Federer is just really struggling at times against these lower ranked guys.

World number one Roger Federer after his first round victory over Colombia's Alejandro Falla: "I don't solely play for myself. When I play I do play for Switzerland and I do try to be a good ambassador, as I travel for eight months of the year, but it is different having the Swiss cross on your jersey and you do feel the pressure. It's not something that we're used to, everybody talking about it on the street in Switzerland. It only comes every four years so it's unusual and I feel that too. It's a huge deal [to win gold], it would be a massive highlight of my life."

What is it with our Doubles teams and chucking away leads?

Jamie and Andy a set up and twice a break up in the 3rd.

Colin and Ross a break up in the 2nd, having been broken from a leading position at 5-6 in the 1st. On serve.

Laura and Heather a set and a break up, now back on serve.
