To be honest, if the women arent the ones objecting to playing five sets then equal pay is completely fair. They dont make the decisions. I'm sure most of them would be fine with playing five sets. They play the times they are instructed to play, their pay shouldnt be any different because of tennis ruling.

If Sharapova were to play a five set match I'm pretty sure she would lose her voice, same with Azarenka. Their conditioning is good but best of 5? Na

I personally would like to see women play five sets. But I dont think they can do it. Maybe in a final but not the whole tournament.

Serena looking really good atm. Hope she wins it.

Can't wait for the Federer vs Djokovic. It is their first time playing on grass which makes it even more exciting.

This is the 8th time they're playing in the semi of a slam and Djokovic has won 5 of them I think.

Ivanovic vs Wozniacki in a 4-hour epic 5-setter would be

I'm sure they'd have the conditioning to do one or 2 matches in 5-sets, but a whole grand slam? Not likely.

Really excited about today but I might have to miss part of one of the matches if the Lancashire/Yorkshire match goes ahead since we got our tickets months ago. Hopefully the rain continues and it's called off because I really don't want to miss either match.

It'll be great to see how Djokovic fairs on grass against Federer. With Nadal out of the picture I'm sure Federer will sense he has a real shot of winning the tournament and getting back to number one if he can win today. That's a huge incentive for him, not that'll be easy. All the pressure's on Novak and that might help Federer.

As for the other one it should be a classic. I hate how everyone over here is talking like Murray's already in the final like they did three years ago before he got smashed by Roddick. Tsonga's a real tough opponent for him but obviously he can beat him. Tsonga's serve's been so good all tournament that Murray has to take his chances when he gets them. If Tsonga can keep his unforced errors down I think he'll take it, but Murray's so good at forcing his opponent into another shot that Tsonga might force his shots a bit.

Can't wait at all for an hour's time. Bring it on! I don't know why but I have a feeling it's going to be a Federer/Murray final.

Yeah, it is ridiculous. I think everyone forgot what Tsonga did to Djokovic in the Roland Garros. He had 4 match points. Murray will find it very hard.

Federer vs Djokovic might as well be the final since Tsonga nor Murray stand a chance of beating them in the final.

Murray wouldn't beat either but I'd fancy Tsonga against Federer. He did beat him here last year from two sets down which just doesn't happen to Federer. It'd be different in a final but don't say neither stand a chance against Federer in the final. He's not the beast he was.
