Wimbledon gets Interesting

The Wimbledon championships this year has thrown a few surprises both in the men's and the women's singles. In the women's section, all the top 4 seeds have been knocked out. This is the first time in the Open era that all 4 seeds failed to make it to the last 8. Also Jie zheng became the first Chinese to reach a Grand Slam singles semifinal.
Meanwhile, the men's singles has seen an upset in Novak Djokokovic being eliminated by Marat Safin of Russia.

The Nadal v murray match is the highlight as Murray has the crowd behind him. Rafa has to face 2 opponents in Murray and the crowd. It should also be noticed that with the support of his home crowd, Murray rallied to beat Gasquet in the previous encounter.
