As of yesterday. I'm a huge fan of Marcus Willis. He was the lowest ranked player to get into the qualifying tournament of the qualifying tournament, and tomorrow he'll play Roger Federer after winning 7 straight matches. Saw his press conference, super cool guy.
 
Wimbly planning is just too ridiculous. You're behind schedule, there's rain coming, and you don't start until 12.00 (normal tournaments start earlier), even though it's dry then. Luckily there's Delpo vs Wawa
 
Kyrgios-Brown was very entertaining as expected, lot of antics from both sides, and it could have been the shortest 5 set match ever, at 2 hours and 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, Djokovic is a set and a break down against Querrey.

Kyrgios and Murray should be a good match up depending on which Kyrgios turns up on the day and whether he lets distractions get to him.
I agree, should be an amazing match. I'm a big fan of both, but I hope Murray pulls through on this one because this is a huge chance for him to finally win another slam after 3 years.

Well with Nadal and Djoko out Murray will see it as a lost opportunity if he doesn't win.

Matter of taste, clearly.
Both Kyrgios and Murray represent the drift away from traditional tennis etiquettes.
A bloody shame in my opinion.

A lot of Kyrgios is blown out of proportion. He's barely done anything wrong this year. Murray just whines and screams at himself, he's basically sabotaging himself. Tennis needs more players with personality. If tennis is gonna be dominated by players who act like Raonic the future of tennis doesn't look too bright

Tennis is one of the few sports where skill and the game itself is enough for it to be good entertainment. No need for manufactured WWE -like drama.
 
Kyrgios realised he couldn't win, others do that as well but they make it a bit less obvious. Not all players have to be the perfect son-in-law

Superb performance by Murray though. Clear favourite for the title in my opinion

agreed.

Edberg was one of the most boring players around, character-wise, but a joy it was to watch him serve volley.
Boring Pete same story.
Federer, too quiet according to some, but I'd switch on the tv for him anytime.
I don't really care to watch Nadal, Murray or Djoker, unless they play Federer.

Exactly how I feel.
 
Quite the scare for Murray there. Couldn't quite dismantle Tsonga as he did with Kyrgios. Should dispose of Birdman easily enough as he doesn't have the tools to hurt Murray

Tsonga is really awesome though, still signing stuff and going on pictures after such a tough loss.
