What did you guys make of Novak inviting Gerard Butler to sit with the Djokovic camp for the Wimbledon final? Friends or not Gerard isn't stupid. I'm not sure any high profile Brit would have been brave enough to sit in the Djokovic box against Andy. It would certainly have taken a very, very brave Scot.
I couldn't understand Djokovic even asking to be honest. I mean, Gerard Butler is a friend, fair enough, but he's also a Brit, and a Scot to boot. I think fellow Scots might have given Gerard Butler a bad time if he'd sat in Djokovic's box. I might be mean-spirited, but I wonder if Djokovic, as well as simply inviting a friend, was trying to employ a little bit of a head-game for Andy.
Djokovic is supposed to be very patriotic, so you'd think he would get that even asking a Brit to sit in his box might not be the best idea. I was glad when Butler said he said he couldn't do it, but equally glad when he said he'd accepted the tickets for the royal box that Djokovic got him.
You know, the funny thing about the programme was that initially I laughed at the title, 'The Day We Won Wimbledon', but when you think how invested everyone seemed to be, even a lot of people who don't know their aces from their tennis elbows usually, it's actually not far off the mark! I know I, and I'm sure everyone here, played every point with Andy, especially in that last game. If I live to be 100 I'll never forget that day.
