Will be interested to watch
Azarenka v Pennetta.....interested to see if the injury Azarenka sustained in her previous match has any bearing on this match.
Kvitova v Shevedova......should be a fun match.Both women have lapses in their games.

Well this is horrible, I guess another potential Maria/Serena showdown is in order. At least, Vika can still remain at number 3 as the next two behind her are Aga defending finalist points and Errani flamed out early. That said big opportunity for Kvitova to get back on track and for Jankovic to back up her French Open showing.

You know.... I hate to see Azarenka pull out period, but I'm more worried that injuries are going to be an injury for Azarenka again. Her consistent injuries effected her a few years ago when she got up to #3 but then fell down to the #8 spot and maybe further after some injury ridden months on tour. Now she's missed part of this season already.... she had a semifinal in points to defend here. I just hate to see injuries hinder a player's career.

RE: Wimbledon Day 3: Wednesday, June 26 - Order of Play
So I just heard the commentator say Bouchard is LAST year's Wimbledon Junior Champion. So... of course she's got some confidence here. But more than that, it appears she's done her homework on Ivanovic. But she's also just playing better. Moving better. Just playing some good defense. And Ivanovic is just not mentally tough enough to deal with it. She's got the game to beat this girl. Though, this girl is not bad. She's going to be very good. But at this stage, Ivanovic should be winning. She's just letting the pressure of playing someone younger get to her.

I was really hoping to see Ivanovic come up with a comeback just to signal that she's got some mental strength in there somewhere. But it's clear she doesn't. I can't believe this girl is serving for the match. I mean, I say Ivanovic is not mentally strong. Bouchard really is playing good. She's outhitting Ivanovic. She's seems to be overpowering Ivanovic. Something very few players can do. Still, I was hoping Ivanovic could go further in this draw and help her ranking.

COME ON!!!! A double fault to give 2 match points.

Wow. So disappointing for Ivanovic. I don't see it as a huge upset because we've all seen Ivanovic play tight like this. But... the 2012 Wimbledon Junior champion just upset a top 15 player. That's the story. And... that makes it less of an upset at the same time. If she's going to do it anywhere it, it's going to be here. I personally put the loss on Ivanovic. But the commentators are saying that it's not Ivanovic's poor play. She didn't play badly they say. They say Bouchard just over powered her. She flat out out hit her and was better. I can see that. But I still think Ivanovic could have made it more of a match with some mental fortitude. But who knows. Bouchard could do even better. The question for me is will she be the cream of this new crop of young women - you know, Robson, Stephens, Vekic, Mladenovic, Watson, Martic, Keys? Or is she just great on grass?

Woz out in straights 6-2 6-2. She really played a clunker out there. Didn't look comfortable at all and pretty much was taken to the woodshed.

Congrats to Cetkovska. Excellent effort. Clap

Bye bye Caroline - it's not your day. You didn't find your game at all, and with a little scare with your ankle it didn't add to your confidence, so back to the jungle and prepare yourself for the hard court season. Maybe not that bad that you can warch a bit of golf while you recoverWink A shadow of yourself today - sorry to say. And an opponent that quickly saw the possibillities and used her chance - congrats to Cetkovska for her win - well done.

Well all you can say is that the seeds are rapidly falling - Vika and Ana out today, so perhaps we'll see another expected final between one and two. Sorry I don't watch it but if it's someone else who's not scared by Serenas name - maybe. May your favorite make your day.

New racquet and pretty dress didn't help Caro a bit. Lost badly to lower ranked Cetkovska.

Masha is warming up, I don't think she'll have any issues today.

^^ Don't bet on that. Masha's playing from behind too. Was down 1-4 and just held and broke to make it 3-4

Make that 3-6 as Masha drops the opening set. She's channeling an UE machine today. She then takes a tumble on the baseline that really makes her unhappy.

What is with all the retirements and players slipping and falling? Wimbledon should be embarrassed at the state in which all the players are losing his or her footing.

Sharapova tumbles again and is really in trouble. Down a set and 4-2.

Be careful Serena! Yikes Wimbledon is becoming a decimated field on both the men's and women's side this year!
