London, June 26: In the beginning of the second round, play shifts back to the bottom halves of the men's and women's singles draws, which are no longer as loaded as they once were with the shocking exit of Rafael Nadal.
The contest between Michelle Larcher de Brito and Maria Sharapova is not so much a match to watch as one to listen to. Although she has somewhat dialed down her volume, Larcher de Brito is one of the game's most piercing screamers.
Here are the matches most likely to be pleasing to watch Wednesday, with the sound on or off.
Andy Murray (GBR)(2) vs Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE)
Roger Federer (SUI)(3) vs Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)
Victoria Azarenka (BLR)(2) vs Flavia Pennetta (ITA)
