Rafael Nadal was knocked out from Wimbledon in the second round. I'm not surprised as grass court is not his favourite surface. However, the main reason I'm so into tennis these days is because of him. Watching the flamboyant and charismatic tennage player is better than watching the stone-faced Roger Federer or the hotheaded Marat Safin. Well, better luck next time.
Maria Sharapova continues her campaign to defend her championship title after punishing 15 years old Sesil Karatancheva with the result 6-0, 6-1. Last year runner-up, Serena Williams struggled to survive the second round over Italian, Mara Santangelo.
I was a bit surprised because a lot of publicity has been given to Sania Mirza over the channel Star Sports on Astro. I don't think she played very well especially against last year US Open champion, Svetlana Kutznetsova. In fact, there are a few other Asian players who performed better. For example, Korean Lee Hyung-Taik and Thai, Danai Udomchoke who do not received much tv coverage.
