Day 3 saw some pretty exciting matches.  Lauren Davis has continued her gradual ascent up the rankings by making the third round of Wimbledon by taking out No. 12 seed Flavia Pennetta.  Maria Kirilenko did not back up her performance against Sloane Stephens.  She went out in straight sets to Shuai Peng.  Li Na was clinical today against Meusberger as was Kvitova, and Radwanska.  Venus Williams showed today in singles and doubles why she is considered the Queen of Wimbledon.  Venus started off slow against Nara but once she got going she was like a freight train.  She followed up her impressive performance in singles by taking over the doubles court in a wonderful display of tennis.

Victoria Azarenka went out of the tournament in a very puzzling manner.  Up 40-0 on serve, Azarenka would lose the next 5 points a lost 8-6 in the third.  She played well but the rust is still there. Hopefully she will get more match play by the time the hard court season rolls around.

Day 4 sees some tasty matchups and hopefully we will have some excellent matches.  Master Ace’s picks are below:-


S Williams over Scheepers
