John Lloyd on Wimbledon

By John Lloyd
BBC Sport tennis pundit

Greg Rusedski
I thought Greg Rusedski played the best he has for many years. The serve was impressive, he returned well and his half-volley was unbelievable.

Joachim Johansson played a great match and I thought Greg put in a great performance.

Rusedski played down the controversy over the umpire calling a Johansson shot "not up" in the fourth-set tiebreak, but I don't agree with Greg.

I think that was an important point to go one-love up.

I don't think the shot was up - it was marginal - but the point is once the umpire made the call, the point should have been played again.

It's a shame because if Greg had got through that match, I think he could have got to the quarter-finals.

But he played as well as he could against Johansson and that's all you can ask.

It's going to be tough but Murray can win

The problem now for Greg is getting his ranking up. He keeps running into these seeds early on. But he's still got some good tennis left in him.

Looking ahead to Thursday's matches, Andy Murray and Tim Henman are both in action.

Murray is, as they say in America, the real deal. He wants the pressure, he doesn't care about that, which is what I like about him.

It's going to be tough against Radek Stepanek but he can win.

All Tim is concerned about is just playing a bit better each match. He hasn't struck the right form yet.

It's almost like he's trying to find what sort of game plan to play here.

He hasn't got it right yet but he's still in the tournament. He'll be fine.
