Laura Robson looks like a massive talent but will be back to school next week. Keothavong couldn't hold it together on the court nor at the post match interview. And no other British players are worthy of coverage. It's tennis, it's glorious and it's all live in London.
Alas, despite Murray's heroics on centre-court this afternoon, we've seen it all before. The audible groans from Henman Hill will no doubt erupt at some point over the next two weeks, groaning at the loss of the final British hopeful. And as they drop like flies, there's no other way to console yourself than with a round of tennis on your chosen Sony platform. We take a look at the best (in no particular order).
Actua Tennis (PSone, 1998);
Bringing the game of tennis into the polygonal third dimension with some cranky animation and spectactular graphics for the time, Actua Tennis did not play the best game of tennis in the world but it paved the future in a number of ways. Oh, and it featured commentary from Barry Davies. What's not to love?
Virtua Tennis: World Tour (PSP, 2005);
Proving on launch-day that the PSP was more than the average handheld, Sumo Digital's ludicrously perfect handheld entry of the Virtua Tennis series looked gorgeous and played even moreso. Loading times may have resulted in a jilted experience, but there's a reason why this game still remains one of the PSP's best games.
Everybody's Tennis/Hot Shots Tennis (PS2, 2007);
Despite getting panned for being so darn simplistic, Everybody's Tennis played true to its European title and provided a cracking game of tennis accessible by all. The gameplay is smooth, easy to pickup and, much like SEGA's Virtua Tennis franchise, is utterly addictive.
Anna Kournikova's Smash Court Tennis 2 (PSone, 1999);
Replacing a cute marketable character with the frankly rubbish but ever-so marketable Ms. Kournikova, Smash Court Tennis 2 was a big hit with the more, what we call now, "casual" gamer. Not only was it very simple to play but it also had video footage of Anna bustling around on court wearing very little. Technology, eh?
Virtua Tennis 3 (PS3, 2007);
Everybody's favourite Dreamcast game was made better-er for Playstation 3 with the introduction of some truly breathtaking photo-realistic graphics and the arcade gameplay that made SEGA's racquet romp such an awesome franchise in the first place.
