Gael Monfils, Australian Open 2016

Gael Monfils reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne for the first time after a 7-5 3-6 6-3 7-6 win over 74th ranked Andrey Kuznetsov. The Frenchman had an easy ride to the the last 8, beating Yuichi Sugita (124), Nicolas Mahut (63) and Stéphane Robert (225); but he’ll be the underdog on Wednesday as he faces in-form Milos Raonic.
Do you think Monfils can cause an upset?

Wimbledon Centre Court

Another great day at the All England Club with upsets (Azarenka, Pennetta, Ferrer), 5-sets marathons and some great tennis. Thanks to douglasmcfarlaneuk, enjoy some great pictures from day 3 at Wimbledon:

Li Na vs Yvonne Meusberger

She spent only one hour and 9 minutes on the court to defeat Meusberger, but Li Na‘s playing level was all be convincing. Do you think she can win the title?

David Ferrer vs Andrey Kuznetsov

Huge surprise on court 2: David Ferrer made it to the quarterfinals of his last 10 Grand Slam events prior to Wimbledon but was beaten in five sets by 22-year old Andrey Kuznetsov on Wednesday. A disappointing season so far for the 2013 French Open finalist.

No big names like yesterday (I had ground passes today), but some interesting matches and practice sessions.

I arrived quite late today and headed to court 9 to watch Mikhail Youhzny and John Isner at practice:
