Day 4 And The Drama Continues

It's hard to believe it is only day four of Wimbledon. Already this week we have seen Federer dropping sets, Murray doing really well and Nadal being pushed to five sets with a guy ranked somewhere near the 150 mark.
As if all that wasn't enough drama. We've also seen the longest, emotionally draining match ever seen finish on court 18. A lot of people, myself included, wondered if Isner and Mahut would even be able to walk. But boy were they ready once they set foot on court. After yesterdays marathon match these two guys lasted another 21 games. These two guys proved just how much shape both physical and mentally that you have to be in to play this sport.
As if having a record braking day wasn't enough. The Queen also made a very nice appearance at the tournament. Her presence seemed to be a good omen. With Andy Murray winning rather easily in front of The Queen. After all the last time she was at Wimbledon we had a British winner. So here's hoping for more drama to continue.
