This is Hampton's first main draw at Wimbledon. I swear I don't plan these things but this is now my third time featuring her in this space, both previous times for the Australian Open. She was also my Curtain Call for Aussie 2012, Day 4 and for Aussie 2011, Day 1.
Golden Squid Report
Tobias Kamke - Kamke and doubles partner Matthias Bachinger (Germany) went through qualifying to reach the main draw. Wimbledon is the only Slam that has a qualifying tournament for doubles. They lost today in the first round to Jamie Delgado/Kenneth Skupski (UK) in four sets. Kamke also lost in the first round to fellow Golden Squid, Richard Gasquet (France, 18th) in straight set.
