The Wimbledon schedule 2010 is all about one match today. In fact, the Wimbledon schedule 2010 has scheduled the same match for three straight days. Today, John Isner and Nicholas Mahut will presumably finish their fifth set, and, then, one of them will play again tomorrow. The eyes of the tennis world are on Court 18, instead of Center Court or any of the world’s biggest stars. But, while Isner and Mahut keep going, the rest of the Wimbledon schedule 2010 will proceed pretty quietly.
Yesterday, Roger Federer benefited from the Isner-Mahut battle most of all, or else all the talk would be about him. Federer once again struggled to move on, although it took him just four sets to beat Ilija Bozoljac. However, no one is talking about that today, or about any other superstars.
The Wimbledon schedule 2010 for today has Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Robin Soderling in action. But, it is all about Isner and Mahut, two players whom no one really heard of until yesterday.
It would benefit the two players to actually finish today, so the winner can move on through the rest of the tournament. Thanks to this match, the Wimbledon schedule is still not finished with the first round, as Thiemo De Bakker is still waiting to face Isner or Mahut.
De Bakker won his fifth set by 16-14 yesterday, so this is benefiting him as much as anyone. Due to these special circumstances, today’s winner will not have to play De Bakker later in the day, and can rest until tomorrow. After that, they will have to rush to catch this side of the bracket up with the others.
As for everyone else on the Wimbledon schedule 2010 today, they can play in relative obscurity. Andy Murray has already defeated Jarkko Nieminen in straight sets today, but Britain’s best hope for a champion is an undercard this morning.
Rafael Nadal will come on later today against Robin Haase, although Isner and Mahut might still be playing by then. Meanwhile, 10th seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won a mere 10-8 fifth set tiebreaker against Alexandr Dolgopolov, while Robin Soderling is two sets up on Marcel Granollers.
On the Wimbledon schedule for the women, Serena Williams will play Anna Chakvetadze, while Caroline Wozniacki has won her first set against Kai-Chen Chang. Yesterday, Venus Williams, Jelena Jankovic, Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin advanced, while word of the Isner-Mahut fifth set was spreading.
Yet, for the first time ever, the center match on the Wimbledon schedule 2010 is on Court 18, as Isner and Mahut try to finish while the sun is up this time.
