Thanks for your kind comment. I hope that she will try to continue playing like this. I think her new coach is doing a great job. My biggest fear though is that since she lost the only two matches she played since she started working with him she might think, "Well, I tried to play more agressive like everyone has been telling me and I lost both times. Fuck it, this doesn't work for me." That's why it was as you say a bad draw for Caroline. It would have been better if she had been able to win at least a few matches with her "new game" at Wimbledon before losing so that she can envision what might be in the future if she keeps playing "positive tennis." Now she played "positive tennis" but had nothing to show for it. I really hope that it won't cause her to panic but that she sees it as a long process that might bring big rewards in the end. I REALLY hope that. It's a gamble for sure, but definitely one worth taking in my modest opinion.

Please forgive the oversight;didn't know that such a day even existed....One would think,for such a title,that the country had actually fought for independence....instead of just boring the colonial power to death and inspiring them to go back home.With a glorious name such as Canada Day,shouldn't the honorees have a military that's equipped with something more potent than Mattel GI Joe dartguns??

Seriously,though,you almost always are such nice people...much,MUCH more so than our mutual neighbors are...so I welcome you to share any other important events from Canadian culture...or any of the riveting political developments from Da Nerth 'Ouse...and kindly remind me when those Quebecois Catholics celebrate Virgin of the Loons Day.In closing,to rectify my earlier omission,DIAH,I'll wish you--in your native tongue--Hopee Kunuduh Deigh!!!

Fed had to go off court for some medical treatment a bit ago.

Paszek is now the only unseeded player left in the tournament. Of all the possible opponents Caro could have drawn in 1R, she had to get the only one who was QF material!

No such thing as luck in sport according to many...

Frederik L. Nielsen is leading 7-6 7-6 4-3 in the men's doubles when play is suspended. It's almost surreal that the QF is just a few points away! GL!

I would have liked to see him and Caro play here. Could have been fun.

Well, when the odds for drawing one specific opponent are 1 to 95, I think it qualifies as a bit of bad luck if you do draw that opponent.

All I've read about Frede suggests, he's an exceptionally nice person, so chuffed for him. Just had a look at wiki, his career prize earnings are $324k ... Could get a real bump this week!

My gf's dog's sense of smell really sucks!!;we can hide a dog biscuit practically in plain sight and he wanders around the room w/o finding it...and,yes,we take pity on him and give him the biscuit after he's given up.Another interesting trait is that he'll leave the broom alone if it's placed with handle side down,but he'll urinate on the brush side if you place that end on the floor instead

Indeed, I was agreeing with you in contrast to what others have said here (the smilie)... and I'm personally all too aware that luck plays a huge part in all parts of life, not just sport... Anybody that anybody who doesn't realise that has issues.

Looks like Cilic and Murray played for a game and a point before play got suspended ...

Frederik Nielsen goes into the doubles quarters after a tough 5 set match 7-6 7-6 6-7 5-7 7-5. Well done

While I was wondering which of the four remaining players would be the titlist come Saturday, it suddenly struck me that "titlist" looks rather like a naughty word!
