Judy Dalton direct from Wimbledon - Day 4 review

Thursday, June 26

Thursday, June 26

WEATHER a bit changeable. The first time for the week we've had interruptions with some matches interrupted and postponed.

Boy oh boy what a great win for Nick Kyrgios over Richard Gasquet, to come from two sets down what an effort.  One of the highlights of the Championship so far. It made all the Tennis Australia officials smile like there is no tomorrow. Easy wins for Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova as they march on.

Rafael Nadal continuies to have to battle; Stan Wawrinka went walkabout, but managed to win Jo Wilfred Tsonga only just scraped through after a marathon against Sam Querrey; but one of my favourites to watch Gael Monfeil bowed out.

It is wonderful to see the passion and love for tennis that we players have. Ross Hutchins, who was diagnosed with cancer at the end of 2012,  played in the men's doubles. Andy Murray and other leading men players had a charity day for him at Queens last year and now he is part of the tour again. Great to see.

Maria Sharapova and boyfriend Grigor  Dimitrov have a special routine each day. They breakfast at the Wimbledon Village and chat about the day ahead.  The restaurant is happy as you can imagine.  Her stand at the courts is very busy with her Sugarapova sweets. We are all asking what percentage does she get for each sweet sold.
