Men's side: no. 1 seed and defending champion Hewitt is eliminated by an unheralded Croatian qualifier playing his first ever Grand Slam match, home favourite Rusedski and American young gun Roddick each win to set up a rematch from last year, Srichaphan scrapes through in tough five-setter, British wildcard Childs pulls out victory from two sets to one down.
Women's side: Clijsters hands out a 32-minute double-bagel drubbing, Venus and Hantuchova stroll through soporific first-round cakewalks, British wildcards predictably choke away opportunities and lose in disappointing fashion.
That answer your question? In the first week of a Slam, the men's side is always going to be far better than the women's and deserves more coverage. It's in the second week that things arguably switch round, although I'm hoping for a good, dramatic last few rounds from both the men's and women's events this year. We had neither last year.
Say it Quietly, I'm White but I'm Really Rather Contrite
