This seems to have opened earlier than previous editions. Not that it will make any difference to the disappointment!

Workies racqueteurs once more will be double faulting their way through the tournament...

Tough to find padding with no £1m players in the men's draw and no £1.25m in the women's.

Good first day - everybody that played today got through. Still many yet to play though.

Just checked that only 2 people in our group have Nadal - quite surprising that so many people went without him, including myself

Injury risk v price put paid to Nadal for me.

Impressive by Murray this morning. Was getting concerned that he may knock out my first player at one point!

Good first day - everybody that played today got through. Still many yet to play though.

Just checked that only 2 people in our group have Nadal - quite surprising that so many people went without him, including myself
Also just noticed that only one more person besides me has Wozniacki, which, as we see today, was definitely not a good pick. Looking at the bracket I filled out it seems there were much better options for me to choose, especially given her price. Other than that happy with my result, given that I have not really followed tennis that much last year.
