I had a quick glance through the last few pages on this thread and realised quite quickly why I hardly ever come on here any more.  No point spending your time fixating on the morons in the UK press.  Nice weather today at Wimbledon and some good tennis.  All the more enjoyable when you just watch what is going on and ignore all the inane chatter behind the scenes.

Looking forward to seeing Andy tomorrow.  Love the way everyone is hyping up how mega hard his draw is.  When that happens he usually goes on to reach the final.  Here's hoping Wink

S'long as you're ok.

Tennis has been bumped in order for my daughter to catch up with some coro that's she's missed (short visit from the mountains with too much snowfall ATM apparently) but from the highlights I did see on tv tonight, the grass looked very green and lush. So looking forward to today with Andy and might just watch Nadal beforehand. Need to make the most of my days off yes Enjoy the tennis SG Very Happy

Have ypu seen the latest from Davydenko.  It should be more than enough for Andy to slaughter him.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Jim didn’t give Pete even an inch in that match but he did feel a lot for him.


I'm sure Sampras respected him all the more for it. However, I do remember at one point, Courier shouted over, "Hey, Pete, we don't have to do this today. We can do it another day."

Yes, AK400 shared the link with us.  Davydenko has been badly misinformed but as Alex would say, meh.

On a positive note, I can't wait for the tennis to start today!

Not exactly Andy at Wimbledon - though he does get a mention or two - wasn't sure where else to put this!

Maggie May, Andy Murray’s Border Terrier, writes for The Tennis Space:

Let’s get this straight. I’m not your ordinary tennis player’s dog. I don’t even like tennis balls for a start. I’ll chew them, sure, and rip them to pieces- but don’t even think about asking me to fetch. I have people to do that for me these days.

I enjoy the grass-court season, though. It means I have the household staff on call pretty much full time, and lots of visitors come and go, which is great. Ivan Lendl came round for dinner the other night which I was pretty excited about. I’m a soft touch when it comes to men, you see. I flirted my Border Terrier socks off and even allowed him on my sofa, but he didn’t let me kiss his face which I thought pretty harsh. Maybe it’s a Czech thing?

I’m not au fait with European customs. Rusty and I visited Paris last month, which was very exciting as it was our first time abroad. Everyone there was so accommodating; they really seem to love dogs in France. I’d like to say we were on our best behavior but picking a fight with Daniel Nestor’s coach’s miniature dachshund in the hotel lobby on our last day probably blotted our copybook, so we were sent home before the tennis started. Apparently Pierre Djokovic travels everywhere, but I’ve been told that unless Rusty and I agree to sit in a handbag we can’t be trusted in the player’s lounge. That definitely wouldn’t work as Rusty likes to chew handbags.

So for now we’re happy to be at home; we get to jump on Dad’s face in the morning and there are plenty of socks and ankle braces to play with. It also means we get loads of long walks in our favourite spots – I’m not one to kiss and tell but I did get propositioned by a footballer’s Bulldog in our local woods a couple of months back.  Wimbledon Common is probably the place to be seen during the next few weeks, although if I’m honest I’ll be trying to keep a low profile. The place is usually crawling with paparazzi and swimming in the pond there does awful things to my hair.

I’m not expecting an invite to the All England Club as apparently they have a strict no-animals policy, although a little bird told me that a bigger bird (Rufus the Hawk) holds a permanent position there as official pigeon-chaser. Rusty is great at chasing birds however and I would be more than willing to let them have him indefinitely.

Great stuff - is it Kim that writes it?  Looks a bit like Judy's style.

At least Andy will be well used to the giants and their game, his eye will be in for the big serves and this could play into Andy's hands.

I'm sure Sampras respected him all the more for it. However, I do remember at one point, Courier shouted over, "Hey, Pete, we don't have to do this today. We can do it another day."

Yes, he did and he was smiling when he said that and Apollo was referring to that in which I'd replied (at the beginning of my post) that I didn't think Jim was being sarcastic or that Pete took it in that way, but it was meant to lighten the situation up and offer help as well.

As to Courier not giving Sampras an inch, I meant that, to them it was still a game, an important match and they both remained professional despite the emotional breakdown. This is very different than Andy vs Nieminen match at RG, where everyone thought Andy was faking his injury and it threw him off. As I see it, it would be Nieminen’s discredit if he was influenced by the situation, because Andy himself has faced similar situations (Simon this year, Nole at Cincy last year etc,) and he took total advantage of it and I personally see nothing wrong with it. You can be compassionate towards your opponents, but no reason to give the match away because of it. And I thought Jim did exactly that and I believe Pete would have done the same as did Andy.

I see Charlie and his horse have arrived to grace Wimbles with their presence today. Apparently he hasn't been there since 1970.
How come they weren't there for Andy's magnificent match yesterday?

Seems Federer is down 2 sets against Benneteau, but then Fed has a break in the third set.

Great win by Rusol he was brilliant could not believe what I was watching. Hope he continues to do well he deserves it. What a match. Nadal did not seem to have any answers.
