I've not sure whether it's the surface or not but it's great to see a lot of the seeds being pushed to the limit. Usually the early rounds are so dull but not this Wimbledon.

I'm not sure I agree. There aren't that many three set battles for the favorites, just for the players who aren't good on grass.

The best grass courters have all advanced easily: Maria, Lindsay, Kim, Amelie.

The worst grass courters have played poorly: Dementieva, Myskina, Schnyder

The Williams sisters are obviously not playing well at all. The only exception is Kuznetsova who is playing okay but has had a really difficult draw.
