Upsets and thrillers highlight manic Monday at Wimbledon

Upsets and thrillers highlight manic Monday at Wimbledon

"He's really accomplished all that a player can accomplish".

Of course I knew it was important but in truth I was not really aware of how big a deal Wimbledon was, and how much focus there was on this event. I do think it makes a difference to the interest in the sport, because a lot of people who follow tennis in this country won't enjoy watching me play. So you see a lot of matches [even] on ground courts, you're still going to see a great matchup.

Konta, 26, is doing her best to play down talk of being the tournament favourite but appears to have as good a chance as any of the 16 women left in a wide open draw. "You know, I've felt fairly calm the last few days".

Meanwhile on Centre Court, Murray had French opposition of his own to contend with in the form of BenoƮt Paire, a bearded hipster with a repertoire of flash shots and a questionable weakness for drop shots that regularly let him down.

The third set displayed the same pattern giving the same results and score.

Murray soon settled and got the match back on an equal footing with a break in the eighth game but he was forced into a tie-break after failing to convert two set points on the Paire serve.

Murray faces Benoit Paire in the fourth round later on Monday, with Federer playing Grigor Dimitrov, Nadal up against Gilles Muller and Djokovic taking on Adrian Mannarino. But a year ago Querrey claimed the scalp of defending champion Novak Djokovic and Murray will be aware that this is a big step up. I met Manny Pacquiao, but it was just to say "hi" and take a picture with him when I was in the Philippines. On that occasion, she also won in straight sets en route to reaching the quarter-finals, which until now remained the last time the Russian managed to get this far at the All England Club. But that was by far the best I've hit the ball so far in the tournament.

Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many
House Democratic leaders are taking some comfort in coming in a close second for a seat that's always been firmly in GOP hands. It is certainly morale-sapping for Democrats who still have not figured out how to secure a win over Mr Trump.


Whole Foods customers react to $13.7 billion Amazon merger
Hetu said Amazon could make pertinent offers to attract shoppers of one but not the other, or get shoppers of both to buy more. So news that Amazon has bought U.S. supermarket chain Whole Foods for $13.4bn is interesting but perhaps not surprising.


Small food makers wonder about Amazon-Whole Foods impact
Amazon , though, doesn't know how those customers shop in stores - a gaping hole in data about its more than 300 million shoppers. A video of Amazon Go showed customers shopping in a hi-tech environment: no cashiers, no long queues, and no checkouts.


"I'm just here, happy to have actually made it into the second week, happy to come through three battles this week". "I think we both played a good match which was at a very high level".

"I'm in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon - I don't feel calmer this year than I did in previous years", he said. "I felt scared. I'm like, 'Are they going to come just because of steak?'"

As The Championships approaches week two, the usual suspects and tournament favorites are largely still in the competition, with the women's draw slightly more open, with the absence of 23-time Slam champion Serena Williams.

Andy Murray booked his 10th straight quarter-final at Wimbledon by beating Benoit Paire but he is not used to having a compatriot for company.

With nearly cartoonish Frenchness, he'd miss an easy shot - he made 44 unforced errors to Murray's eight - and drop his racquet, hands on hips, or let his cap fall and run a hand through floppy hair.

"I expect that every time I have played him he has become better". "Look at him. During the point, you didn't see any problem".

Murray held firm, however, and when Paire served at 4-4 and 40-15 the pressure finally told on the Frenchman, who lost four points in a row, hitting a forehand long on the Scot's first match point. When he is playing like this it is never easy. "Hopefully I won't play like this again".
