Todays tennis at Wimbledon

Well after this mornings blog, I thought I had better put an answer on this evening after the matches at Wimbledon.

Elena Baltacha lost to Kristen Flipkens in 2 sets, she didn't seem to take the pressure on her very well after being the last women from the UK. It switched channels a few times.

Andy Murray definately felt good, firstly before the game he said that his opposition Ernests Gulbis criticism was mostly down to the British Press (which is usually true). He also enjoyed his letter from the queen congratulating him on winning Queens tournament a couple of weeks ago.

Then when the game started Murrays serve was briliant. He won the 1st set in under 30 minutes I think 6-2. The 2nd set was a lot closer. It stayed with serve until5-5 then finally Murray broke him. Murray won the next game and won the set 7-5.

The 3rd set started very well. Murray was 3-1 up in first few games. It just kept going and Andy Murray won the set and match 6-3. Andy had 1 match point (even not on his own serve).

So Andy Murray won 3 sets to nil in about 1 and a half hours.
It was a good quick game and should set him up very well.
