Dominika Cibulkova and Petra Kvitova are out of doubles competition at Wimbledon. They were defeated in the first round by 10th seeds Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova.
The Wimbledon website leaves something to be desired, and the mobile phone application is next to useless. "Tradition" goes only so far, I think.
I was also quite annoyed to hear a British commentator say that winning
the French Open is not as spectacular as winning Wimbledon. Enough with the insecure bragging, please, especially when you're directing it at Li Na.
It hasn't escaped the attention of defending champion and four-time Wimbledon winner that she and her sister, five-time champion Venus Williams, have been put on Court 2 twice. Perhaps Williams is also waiting for her family to be invited to sit in the royal box, where, it was announced, "respect is given" to great Wimbledon champions. The Wimbledon organizers also have a pattern of postponing WTA matches when it rains, thereby forcing some WTA players to compete two days in a row.
