It was standing room and then some to see Ernests Gulbis and Sergiy Stakhovksy on Court 12.
But it was a hand gesture kind of day for Gulbis, who was bamboozled in straight sets by Stakhovsky.
Stakhovsky brought back the 70s for a couple of hours, as he donned a headband and net-rushed his way to an upset win.
Agnieszka Radwanska had everything at her fingertips in her easy win over Casey Dellacqua.
She even had time to play game of peek-a-boo with the ball.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga with his own kind of kick serve...
...and his own kind of mid-air approach shot.
Even Jo’s opponent, Sam Querrey, not known for his hops, caught some air. Their match was stopped due to darkness at 9-9 in the fifth set.
Has there ever been a standing ovation when it announced that two more games would be played? There has been now.
Sad David Ferrer is sad. He lost in five sets to Andrey Kuznetsov.
The 23-year-old Kuznetsov of Russia recorded the biggest win of his career.
Maybe Novak Djokovic should have hired Bjorn Borg, rather than Boris Becker, as his coach. He could use some help with his poker face.
What does Petra Kvitova see happening in her immediate future—perhaps next Sunday? The 2011 Wimbledon champ has looked sharp in her first two matches.
Dominika Cibulkova let it all fly...
...in her comeback win over Alison Van Uytvanck, 8-6 in the third set.
