THE sun is out, and so are the stars. Roger Federer and Tim Henman were just two players getting some practice in before their first round matches this afternoon. An added bonus for the crowds.
There’s not much doubt about Federer’s fate today. He’s already one set up after his brief appearance yesterday. Henman’s future is less certain. If he beats Swede Robin Soderling, he faces a certain R. Federer in the second round.
Just outside our window on Court 14, Yorkshire’s Katie O’Brien is doing her best to keep the British flag flying. She’s just won the first set. Further up the incline is Henman Hill and Court One, where Tim is about to walk out. Are the days of Henmania numbered? We’ll see.
