Day 7 – Wimbledon 2008
It was my first time at Court No.1 and I have to say that the officials seats are in a much better location than on Centre Court. I watched the Nadal vs Youzhny match which was pretty one sided, again. The audience gasped in the opening set when Nadal slipped and called for the trainer. However, he still managed to win in three sets. Venus Williams won her match against the unseeded Klaybanova but there were times in the final set where Williams seemed to choke, it took her 5 match points to seal victory. I was on Court 19 today and had some pretty good British junior players showing their potential to the maximum. We need some fresh new British talent to rise up rankings. However, in mean time Andy Murray is doing very well as he beat the Frenchman Richard Gasquet in five sets. Jamie Murray also did well to win his mixed doubles match with Liezel Huber against Nadia Petrova and Dimitry Tursonav.
