I've had one or two enquiries about Moggley and can confirm that he will not be moving on to another player. He tried that once and it didn't work out at all well. I'm sure we'll see him around though. I can't see him and Vika hiding away on Dastardly Isle for long.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Wimbledon sketchbook 2nd Friday (Navratilova, Austin

Queue? What queue? Just turn up at 11 am and walk in. Ok it's only mixed doubles, juniors, oldies and wheelchair tennis but it's still Wimbledon.

Austin & Testud v Schett & Tauziet
Tracey hit an unreturned serve about halfway through the 2nd set and turned to three of us sitting on the wooden bench courtside, "Did you see that big serve?" A couple of points later she was facing two break points:
Bobito: Come on Tracey, another big serve!
Tracey: You want another?
Bobito:
Tracey: I only hit one of those a year.

Tracey gets nailed by Sandrine, a victim of friendly fire


After that I went to court 3 for a bit of mixed doubles. Five games was enough for me though. The tennis was bland, Ostapenko's squeal (you couldn't even call it a scream, much less a grunt) was annoying and she didn't seem to be in the mood for throwing a tantrum and thereby giving me something interesting to draw. So I moved on.

Jordanne Whiley v Aniek Van Koot
I challenge anybody who plays tennis at any level to sit in a chair and try to hit a decent forehand into play. Then compare their efforts to the ones that Jordanne belts on a regular basis.

Kasatkina's a player I've been meaning to draw for a while now. I think Max and I talked about putting her in the RG 'toon but there wasn't a gag that worked well for her.

I was surprised by how fierce she is when you see her close up. Not nasty or argumentative but really intense and combative. She's like the Lady Mormont of the WTA.

Definitely shortlisted for a TftLR appearance before too long

Is there a toon in the works for Sharapova's time at Harvard? Sharapova plans to be in London during the 2nd week of Wimbledon related to her Harvard course/s. So many possibilities beckon.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Wimbledon sketchbook Saturday

Lucie just liked the sketch I did of her on Twitter. Not sure what that says about her opinions of the sack dress Nike gave her to wear

Petko goes crazy even in useless Doubles these Days

poor Cepelova, she probably thought Wimby Crowd is more worse then RG Crowd after cheering hard on her Return Error

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Wimbledon sketchbook Saturday

The queue was long, the weather unsettled, what the hell was I thinking going on a day like this?

Only kidding, once play got under way I had a great time.

Safarova v Cepelova
Lucie is so lovely that you could cut three holes in a sack for her head and arms and she'd still make it look good. So Nike gave it a try.



Early in the 3rd set Jana dumped a return into the net for 15-15 and the crowd went wild, applauding long and loud, some even on their feet. Somebody probably should have told her it was because Djokovic had just lost



For a while this match and Hewitt's doubles match were competing to see which would last longer. Lucie put an end to it at 12-10, much to the relief of the Delpo fans sitting next to me who were starting to worry that they'd never get to see their fave. Hewitt and his vocal supporters who could be very clearly heard 3 courts away, carried on for another hour.

Del Potro v Pouille
Delpo in Lilliput. The ball girl wasn't very big. Delpo was. This is honestly to scale.



Konta & Sanchez v Petkovic & Flipkens
From my seat I could see JoKo and Petko warming up on another court. I considered it my patriotic duty to go cheer for JoKo and also my duty as a cartoonist to go where the drama was (it's Petko, there's always drama). Neither disappointed me. Joko and Maria took the 1st set and Petko provided some antics soon after.

Flipper's thoughts: I should probably back her up. She is, after all, my doubles partner. Screw it, she's talking out of her arse.



Safarova & Mattek Sands v Kasatkina & Gavrilova
With that match suspended at one set all, I followed the sound of tennis, wondering who was crazy enough to still be playing at 9 pm. And there was Lucie again, still wearing her sack, partnering BMS against the Darias. Daria G may be feisty but Daria K is another level. It's only at close quarters that you see just how intensely intense her intensity is.



Honestly I think Daria K would have been all for strapping a lamp to her head and playing on in the dark but the assistant supervisor called it off at 9.20 pm with the score at 5-5 in the 3rd. Thus ended the latest match I've attended at Wimbledon.
