It will be tough, but I think it's time for Murray to make a move at Wimbledon.

He is playing well, so if there was ever a time for him to win it, it could be this year.

I think Dubois got in as a lucky loser so that makes 5 Canadians in the main draw.

Looks like it, because she's in the draw.

Dancevic has a much easier first round match than Raonic, which is unfortunate considering Milos is seeded. Fognini won't be easy, but Dancevic has a very winnable match against Ricardo Mello, a 31 year old Brazilian journeyman.

All but Dancevic are playing today, with Milos hitting the court in a couple of hours as first up.

Nadal to win the tournament on the men's side; don't have even the faintest of clues on the women's side.

Did anyone else notice during Venus Williams' game that there was a fella in the background wearing a Canucks shirt?

He's got Muller up next, #92 in the world. Really hoping to see a Raonic-Nadal 3rd round

That's not really a good argument. First of all, Karlovic has made the quarterfinals before. Second, Del Potro has a much better ground game to back his serve up. Karlovic is 208 cm tall (6'10"); Del Potro is 198 cm (6'6") - significantly shorter. For reference, Berdych is 196 cm (6'5") and I wouldn't say he has struggled at Wimbledon recently. I doubt he can beat Rafa now, though.

I know it was Micheal Russell today but Rafa looked very sharp.
A heck of alot better and more crisp then he started the French.
Im not SURE what it is but his game looks most dangerous on Grass at Wimbledon the past few seasons.

Raonic-Gicquel is on TSN2 right now for any who may have missed it.

Added bonus: non ESPN announcers!

I'm starting out with Rezai/S Williams, which I think might get interesting....Rezai was up a break in the first, but couldn't hold it, won the second, and then the third was over quickly. Didn't watch all of it, but Serena has a lot of work to do before she can declare herself a serious contender for the title.

Ugh. I had exactly 1 hour to watch tennis today and it's Serena's match. Off to work I go...

Rebecca and Stephanie both won!

Wozinak just lost.

Dancevic is up on Court 7 after the current match is done.

Raonic and Muller just underway on TSN

Early break for Raonic.

Raonic with a nasty slip and now with an injury TO.

He just has to ace every point, he's already got the break this set

He's limping around and his movement during the point looks impaired, too. Not a good sign.

Milos is ****ed, can barely move. Too bad, Rafa just got out of potentially having a very tough third round match.

Milos retires.

How disappointing, he looked good early on. Poor guy

sucks for the canadian. He was going to have his first match against a real top opponent too. Hope he recovers quickly and is all set for TMS Canada.

Gulbis loses yet another first rounder to yet another journeyman, though he looked slightly better than he did at Roland Garros this time out. Flashes of skill throughout, but once he got to a tie breaker (he lost two of them, the third and fourth sets), he became very tentative and his concentration deserts him.
