Wimbledon Update

Finally a dry day for the backlogged mess that is Wimbledon and some very strange results:

Justine Henin wins the first set 6-1 but then eventually loses to Marion Bartoli of France.

Andy Roddick wins the first two sets and is up a break in the third but then eventually loses to Richard Gasquet of France.

This next result is a bit more understandable as it involves a "dangerous floater" and isn't such a major choke job as the first two, but Anna Ivanovic (the 6th seed) loses 2-6, 4-6 to Venus Williams (23rd seed).

So the women's final will be Venus Williams v. Bartoli. Gotta like Venus to uphold my pick that a Williams sister will win this year.

Men's semis are going to be Federer v. Gasquet and Djokovic v. Nadal. Djokovic has played back to back marathon matches, Gasquet went to 8-6 in the fifth set today, Nadal at least had an easy match today, Federer has only played one match in the last 5 days. I think its going to be a rematch of the French final and I can only hope the same outcome will prevail.
