Norrie currently winning, with some to spare.

2-0 in sets, be a massive surprise of he loses this from here, the American isn't great TBH. 

At the same time Norrie hasn't been outstanding, Murray, IMO, would probably beat both of these guys. 

Norrie easily through against a very disappointing American who's head seemed to go down early in the 2nd set.

Anyhow, Norrie sails through, TWO players into week two, I never seen that coming, only thought Norrie had a chance.

First up today, at 11:00 is Miss Tan against the GB player Boulter.

Hoping for a good game.

Liam Broady up against Boulters boyfriend De Minaur who defeated another Brit on Thursday night.

De Minaur seemed very one dimensional, hard hitting, lots of baseline rallies with little finesse. 

Not seen much of Broady so not sure how this will go.

After this match, the main event for me, Kyrgios v Tsitsipas. :thumbs2

Broddie out gunned, 3-0 to De Minaur, who I've probably been a wee bit hard on, he is a hard hitting baseline slugger but he is very consistent and generates some power for a guy with a slight build.

Looking forward to the Kyrgios game, more variation guaranteed.

Well, the Kyrgios match certainly provided entertainment.

Over the top at times, especially from Kyrgios, some outstanding tennis but the antics will be the major talking point.

Anyhow, that will be detailed elsewhere, Kyrgios wins in 4 sets.

Big day for the last remaining Brits.

Wee Heather first up on Centre Court just after 1:00pm with Norrie on Court No 1 sometime later.

Watsons opponent is ranked 97th, Watson 121, both must see this as a chance in a lifetime to reach the quarters, although the German is still only 22.

Norrie's opponent is ranked 32, Norrie 12.

After yesterday's show today will be more focussed on the tennis.

Norrie up 2 sets, 6-4, 7-5 and has just broken early in the third.

A real tennis match, not a lot between them, both players playing well. 

Norrie wins a tough match 3-0.

Marches into the quarter finals. :happyclapper

Not sure he's quite, at this stage, got enough to win but already done pretty decent.

A wee mention for an Arbroath lad who beat Jamie Murray & Venus Williams in the mixed doubles.

Johnny O'Mara, with Alicia Barnett, won the deciding set 18-16 on the tie break. 

Quite an achievement. :happyclapper

 

Yes thought I'd watch it to see what all the fuss was about... was a bit of a damp squid actually 😴 so to raise the excitement... with Kyrgios a set down..

Phew.. 😰 if he'd lost I was chapping your door for a loan of sum cash
