Quality stuff by the 15 year old.

Am I right in thinking Murray is only playing in the doubles and not the singles? Shame he’s paired up with SW not sure I can wish her too much success.

I really dislike Nadal. Hope Kyrgios bashes him.

I dislike juicers but Kyrgios is an utter helm.

The guy is touted as this "huge" talent .

He is nothing of the kind. Just another vast gobbed Australian like Tomic, Hewitt and almost everyone else who has ever come from there.

Kyrgios will never ever win anything of note.

At least when McEnroe was an utter bellpiece , he did it off the back of winning multiple grand slams. You look like a much bigger cock when you've won **** all

I wasn't Hewitt's biggest fan, but he won 2 Slams. Kyrgios will probably never have the steel to win any slams, but his A game is as good as anyone's in World tennis.

Apparently, the watch Nadal was wearing during the match cost £500k. Probably ought to get in touch with Blatter.

I enjoyed Kyrgios v Nadal, I can't stand Nadal and his delaying antics so it was good to see Kyrgios winding him up . Not sure if he'd ever win a Slam but the Aussie is a much better player than his current ranking of 44. Andy Murray rates him and I believe they're good friends on the circuit, I reckon there's s Top 10 player at least in there somewhere.
As for this Murray less Wimbledon, I hope his Royal Smugness Federer doesn't win nor Nadal or Djokovic for that matter. It would be good to see a new name being engraved this year.

He's 24 now. Won't ever be in the Top 10.

Doesn't have the bottle. Uses his petulance to distract people from that fact.

The Ravel Morrison of tennis basically.

I think Djokovic will win comfortably this year.

Great end to a great first week of Wimbledon

Konta showed a lot of steel to get through her match today!

Evans, played well but could sense the further the 5th set went how it was going to end

Great to see Murray and Serena as well!

Konta is basically the female Tim Henman but not quite as good or as well liked.

At least Henman could say that he had Sampras in his way the whole time.

There has never been a time.when there are less outstanding women tennis players. If she can't win a grand slam in this era, then safe to say she could never have done so .

After a very comfortable start to the first set Konta just suddenly went to pieces. What a shame. On another note Chrissy Evert! You still would! Proper Milfage! 8-)
