Hence the bracketing of the two matches together!  wink

Not physical brackets.  Had the matches been in different sections of the draw, I'd have left a space between the two ties.

Good win for Ken and Neal to be honest, always looked a tough one. Maybe Bambo and Jonny next with luck?!

Luke and Jonny don't appear on schedule to day, unless I missed it, so presumably they will play Wednesday. Which means Neal and Ken won't play again before Thursday.

The scheduling in doubles sometimes beggars belief - Ken and Neal played 2 sets and a TB yesterday, maybe an hour and a half tennis? And then wait 3 days to play again. They will hardly be tired and as a workload that is ridiculous. Poor show and I think it is largely the norm sadly.

As expected Luke and Jonny play their first match today whilst Neal and Ken rest after their first round exploits two days ago...

Interesting match up in the QF, as we hoped. Experience suggests Neal and Ken will be favourites but I just have a sneaking feeling on this one that Luke and Jonny could surprise them!

 I'd argue the h2h record would make Luke & Jonny favorites....but could go either way

 Cool, how do you find h2h records for doubles pairings, something I have always struggled to find a good source for (although I am sure it is obvious!)

 I'm not sure either, but from memory I know they've played in France a few weeks ago as well as a couple of times over the grass court season and  I'm sure Luke and Jonny have won every time. There may be other matches they've played I'm forgetting but it's 3-0 from the matches I remember.
