Anyone see Andy Murray's match tonight ? He was one lucky fellow despite dragging himself back from 2-5 down in the third set. Nail biting stuff.

I did gran. He really is a grinder. It would be great to see him
in the final with Nadal or Federer. Both playing well.
Especially Nadal.

Haven't watched Murray today yet, his last two matches were interesting with Bublik and Brown both mixing it up, I bet a few other players are glad they are out the scene.

I thought both Bublik and Brown played excellently and gained respect, commentators were a bit harsh on them at times but if you are way down the rankings playing the number 1 its no use using your safe service, you gotta give it everything. Both of them ran out of steam in the end and had to play baseline tennis which of course they weren't going to win even if both of them were quite fast servers.

Full marks to Murray on those matches.

Nadal looks very sharp at the moment, I wonder if he can keep it up when the pressure mounts.

That's because their brains have been scrambled... nothing to do with the tennis, Dilly.

Had to get that in , before Fish arrives. laugh

Talking tennis; Nadal looks as good a new. Haven't really seen Federer play yet.

Dilly, and you really should take more of an interest! A scandalous display of apathy smile

Switched off radio commentary when commentator started drivelling on about a player being dressed all in white with a pony tail down her back held in place by a nice white pony tail band.
Cant see murray winning it this year but would like to be wrong.

Biggest bore of the year if you ask me. Dilly is right. The test card would be more interesting than most of it.

I really don't give two hoots whether Murray wins or loses. Hang on a bit...

Oh hell! His mother is in the front garden with a flame thrower. Must go....

Granny I come home from work every day and watch Eggheads only to find tennis on both Bbc1 and Bbc2, why both ? . Eggheads is a cracking show and I find it no yolk they have taken it off.

Well Dilly, I sit here just about all day and usually have to watch cookery programmes, or DIY programmes or football programmes or rugby or horse racing. So I don't even care anymore. laugh

Missed all the tennis today, much to my annoyance. Had the grandchildren, and sons dog. What a concoction ! Madness and heat all day. Managed to have 10mins quiet for a story before bed (as they are staying the night) and thought I could catch up on the tennis after that. Hey presto ! ... Not a chance. One of them violently ill 15mins later, the other squawking about the smell. So clean up job and into the shower for her. All sorted and then it happened all over again.
About to start knitting a new carpet. frown

I'm having a chuckle at the cafuffle about the Wimbledon courts not being up to scratch. I thought that was the point of grass court tennis, the courts aren't as perfect as hard courts, the imperfections are part of the game as is the case in cricket. Next they will be moaning about draughts in outdoor tennis!
