Obviously, yesterday's Holy Moly moment was posted prematurely - I was in bed watching The Mentalist when my phone buzzed with a text message from my friend L, telling me Sky News were reporting that Michael Jackson had died. Briefly considered going down to the sitting room to turn on Sky News, but that would have meant waking up the house and freaking my Mum out!

There's nothing I can say about it that hasn't been said elsewhere (and way more eloquently) - I'm just stuck on "those poor, poor kids".

Am sitting here at the moment watching Cilic and Haas play the fifth set of their match (BBC Interactive Red Button absolutely ROCKS!!!) - and Haas has just broken back!!! He's 2-3 behind now (was 0-3 down) - I was going to start rambling about how Haas is choking again and someone needs to give him the Hiemlich; I may have been slightly premature on that!!!

AAANNDD.... Haas has held serve so it's now 3-3!!!! At 9.03 at night, I'm wondering how long this can go for......

6-6 in the fifth and they've suspended play for the night (not surprising, it's 9.30 at night, I'm surprised that either player can see the damn ball!!!)

But this has been an AMAZING match so far - the fifth set has had some amazing tennis in it!!!

Will be interesting to see how they do when they start again tomorrow......

(Andrew Castle and Boris Becker are saying they should be scheduled second on Court No. 1 tomorrow....)
