Still no upsets on the men’s side.
Andy Murray had to work a little bit today, but ultimately dusted off Paul Capdeville, 6-2, 3-6, 6-0, 6-2. Juan Del Potro, Gilles Simon and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat their opponents in straight sets. Croatian Marin Cilic, after falling behind Roger Federer’s left-handed hitting partner Jesse Levine two sets to love, won in five sets, 4-6, 2-6, 6-0, 6-3, 6-0.
The men still on the courts right now: Gael Monfils, Fernando Gonzalez.
And no, there was no bad blood today as Serena Williams took care of Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez in straight sets.
In her post-match press conference, Serena Williams was wearing a Nike T-shirt that read, “Vicious, Delicious and Ambitious.” When asked about it, Serena said, “This is the new Nike ‘Delicious’ campaign that I’m a part of, because I’m delicious.”
