    I feel sorry for the Mixed finalists being shunted to Court 1 - it's always been a perk of the Mixed Final that it is the last match to be played on Centre. Couldn't they have put the Ladies Doubles on before the Men's Singles? I wouldn't mind betting that if Andy and Serena had qualified for the final they would have still been playing on Centre Court!

    Indeed, so used to the Mixed being given pime time at the end of the Championships, suppose they don't want to start that early on the show courts. Centre court starts at 2 but it's 1 for Court 1. Think highly unlikely they would have put Andy/Serena on Court 1 had they been in final.

    That's awful for the mixed. Yes, I don't see why they can't put the women's final on at 11 a.m. Come on Wimbly!!! I bet we don't get to see it on telly or online either. Bummer!

    As for the ladies' match, I am really happy for Simona. Great match and fantastic win. She was so cute at the interview and in her presser. I think Serena was hurt because she didn't play a top ranked player until the final. But also it really irritates me that she only seems to play the slams now. Whereas the other players all have to slog it out at the lesser tournaments all year long. So, I'm glad she lost.

    And I'm glad Simona beat her in such a vigorous way, FOUR breaks. Her defense is just phenomenal. And I love how she thanked Darren Cahill for all his help. I watched the ESPN feed and he's one of their commies, and Brad Gilbert told him to tell Simona to stand back on Serena's serve like Kerber did last year, and I guess he did tell her as she mentioned it in her ESPN interview.
    Andy. Rafa. Milos. What's not to like?

    What on earth happened to the coverage of the Ladies Doubles? It was being shown on BBC2 and suddenly disappeared without any warning to be replaced by Top Gear. It's not on the red button - it's nowhere to be found! So disappointing.

    That is not a good look, though was unaware as I was watching via iplayer on the TV. Anyway Hsieh/strycova have taken it 6-2,6-4. Dabrowski/Xu had chances to break back to 4 all but were unable to capitalise, the 3rd seeds had he far stronger start.

    Disappointed that my Canuck lost and tbh she did not play very well, sadly. But at least she got to the final.
