Canada's Milos Raonic defeats Reilly Opelka, advances to next round at Wimbledon

Canada's Milos Raonic defeats Reilly Opelka, advances to next round at Wimbledon Canada's Milos Raonic is off to the round of 16 at Wimbledon. The No. 15 seed from Thornhill, Ont., defeated American Reilly Opelka 7-6 (1), 6-2, 6-1 in a third-round match on Friday. Raonic, the 2016 Wimbledon runner-up, hasn't lost a set this tournament. He'll face the winner of a match between No. 4 seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa and No. 26 Guido Pella of Argentina in the fourth round. No. 19 seed Felix Auger-Aliassime of Montreal was scheduled to face Ugo Humbert of France in a third-round match later Friday. Two Canadian men never have advanced to the round of 16 in a Grand Slam in the same year.

WIMBLEDON , England — Like many in tennis, Martyn Falconer wants to produce his best when Wimbledon rolls around. Falconer’s results at this year’s tournament, his 19th, have been “particularly good.”. “You want a year like this,” Falconer said in the past week.

Two loose forehands from Djokovic gave Federer his first break point in four return games, and he casually converted it with a forehand passing shot winner, breaking Djokovic for the seventh time. Gardeners Give Two - Tone Wimbledon Some Strokes of Color .

Serena Williams could play twice as Wimbledon Week 1 closes

Serena Williams could play twice as Wimbledon Week 1 closes WIMBLEDON, England — Serena Williams is expected to play two matches at Wimbledon as Week 1 wraps up, first in singles and later with partner Andy Murray in mixed doubles. The seven-time singles champion will face 18th-seeded Julia Goerges in the third round on No. 1 Court on Saturday, a rematch of a semifinal last year that Williams won. Williams and Murray were supposed to debut as a team Friday, but that was postponed. They likely will get on court Saturday evening. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are scheduled for matches on Centre Court as third-round play concludes before Sunday's traditional day off. Nadal faces Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, before Federer plays Lucas Pouille.

The Championships, Wimbledon , commonly known simply as Wimbledon , or The Championships, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and is regarded by many as the most prestigious.

“You want a year like this,” Falconer said in the past week. “This is one of the best ones, where everything seems to be peaking at the right time.”

As the head gardener at the All England Club, Falconer cultivates vibrant colors around the grounds, beautifying the various paths and promenades. Such environmental attentiveness is critical to Wimbledon’s aspiration to present “tennis in an English garden,” a goal that reflects a national pride in horticulture that dates back centuries.

But while the on-court tones are famously limited — Wimbledon is still the only Grand Slam event that requires players to take its vibrant grass courts in all-white clothing — Falconer focuses on creating a colorful softness to the surrounding scene.

A two - tone exterior color scheme looks right at home on contemporary architecture. Clearly, with the right color scheme it can look fresh and modern. A duo of cool blue-gray hues helps to break up the boxiness of the home, giving it a sleek and linear appearance.

Wimbledon’s most iconic flower displays are its hanging baskets of petunias, of which there are over 200 on the site, beautifying otherwise uninteresting architectural elements with what Falconer calls an “instant impact.” The tones are mostly muted, with Falconer opting for “anything purply, bluey” that fits the color scheme of the club without being garish or ostentatious.

“You just hang a basket on a pillar, and it gives you something to look at straight away,” Falconer said. “It takes your eye off a building. We’re always trying to soften the landscape.”

Other arrangements are more complex, with various flowers and leafy greens creating texture and painting the grounds with bright, lively tones. The hydrangeas planted at most intersections, for instance, shift color as they bloom and as the pH of the soil changes.

“Because some of these beds are so concentrated, if you went with something garish it would stick out like a sore thumb,” he said. “You just pick your places if you want to use big colors.”

The second stage in stroke recovery marks the redevelopment of some basic limb synergies as certain muscles are stimulated or activated and other muscles in the same system begin to respond. Two limb synergies determine a patient’s reactions to cell regrowth during Stage 2 of recovery.

There is a lot of area to cover on the 42-acre site, which requires a planting operation on a massive scale and outsourced growing. Some 15,000 to 18,000 petunias are grown for the tournament about 10 miles south, in Banstead; another 19,000 plants of other varieties are brought in from domestic growers and from overseas, primarily from the Netherlands. The club declined to disclose its flower budget.

Though most English gardens are designed to shine continuously, with various elements blooming and dying back throughout the year, Falconer’s efforts at Wimbledon need to peak during the two weeks of the tournament. He consults with growers about when plants may be peaking in a year, which can vary given the 80 to 90 different types of plants around the site.

“Generally if the weather does what you expect it to do in a U.K. summer, they’re flowering in time,” he said. “But we’ve got such an array of plants that if something is flowering, something else might not be ready. And then, by the second week of the championships, that one is flowering and the other thing is finishing up.”

Finding a correct color combination is one of the most important steps in designing a stylish and holistic look. This is why we’re offering you this cheat sheet, so you’ll always hit the bullseye when choosing clothes and interior decor. Scheme № 1: A complementary combination.

Most of the hard work, in terms of planting, is done before the tournament opens to the public. A team of 15 gardeners fans out at the club each morning, starting around 6 a.m., for maintenance and upkeep, trimming dying parts to freshen up plants and occasionally countering the effects of the more than 42,000 people who come through the gates on the busiest days of the tournament.

The packs of people, Falconer said, are remarkably respectful of the plants, with the only ill-effects of the traffic being “a little bit of rubbish and a little bit of bum-squashing.”

“There is a bit of trying to find somewhere to have a seat, so you get edges of planters where they’ve perched their backsides to take a rest and they get a little bit squashed,” he said of the flowers.

There are also gardening responsibilities beyond the flower displays, including trees — which must not cast shade on the courts that would adversely affect the growth of the lawn courts — and ivy, which has covered the exterior of the Centre Court building since 1922.

Along with the history, there is innovation: This year, two “living walls,” each five meters tall, were added to the outside of the renovated No. 1 Court. The walls feature 14,344 plants with a built-in, automated irrigation system, their design “reflecting the ‘movement’ of a wave pattern similar to a tennis ball being hit.”

For the game’s top players, the time to stop and notice the flowers is before the masses arrive.

“I actually like early hours of the day before the public and the crowd come in, when you can actually move around freely as a player,” Novak Djokovic, the tournament’s defending champion in men’s singles, said. “That’s where you notice how much effort and time people who are working in organization and management here, how much time and efforts they’re investing into making this club probably the most famous tennis club in the world.”

Though he “always liked the ivy more,” the eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer also said he could take time to appreciate the flowers before the tournament gets underway. “You start to sort of not see them anymore,” he said, once the business of winning tennis matches is at hand.

“Especially that sort of first week, the practice week, when we wander around the grounds, we get a bigger chance to enjoy them,” Federer said of Wimbledon’s flowers. “We see the gardeners working on them.”

Where players don’t see flowers, usually, is within the tournament’s show courts. While the insides of the French Open’s Philippe-Chatrier Court and the United States Open’s Arthur Ashe Stadium have small floral displays on their courts’ margins, there are no blooms to be found within Centre Court or the other main stadiums at Wimbledon.

“Personally I don’t think it needs it,” Falconer said. “Let the grass courts do their talking in there, and we’ll do our talking outside.”

Roger Federer withdraws from Rogers Cup in Montreal after losing Wimbledon final.
WIMBLEDON, England — Roger Federer is going to take the Rogers Cup off. Federer announced his decision to skip the ATP Tour event in Montreal after losing the men's Wimbledon final on Sunday. Federer lost to rival Novak Djokovic 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 13-12 (3) at the grass court Grand Slam event. "We had decided I was going to skip Montreal anyway already a week ago, just give myself enough time," said the 37-year-old Federer, who was visibly tired after a nearly five-hour match. "I wish I had more, but I don't. I'm just going to take enough time off what I can and prepare for Cincinnati and get going from then on again." The Rogers Cup begins Aug.
