PHOTO OP: Top ballers hit the skids at Queen's Club

Slippin' n slidin' seemed to be the name of the game today at Queen's Club (wait isn't the clay season kaput?) Not one but three ballers hit the skids on the slick grass today but managed to dig out wins - and isn't that all that matters?

Rafael Nadal defeated Japan's rising star Kei Nishikori 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, Andy Murray avoided serious injuries to his groin and ankle defeating the talented Latvian Ernests Gulbis 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 and Lleyton Hewitt dismissed Frenchie Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-4, 6-4.

  1. Novak Djokovic and Janko Tipsarevic both also tumbled spectacularly today at Queen's in their last match of the day. Mardy Fish hurt his ankle and had to forfeit against Andy Roddick.

    All other players slipped constantly.

    The reason for all that slipping was a short mid-afternoon shower in London.
