Andy this evening: There's a bit of me that misses there being no roof @wimbledon still looks and sounds weird watching grass court tennis indoors
....then some football tweets about Spain v Italy including:
That was some penalty shoot out loved it... Mock the week now!
Gary Lineker: Like a top quality tiebreak!
Andy: @garylineker I wish I could play tiebreaks as cool as some of those footballers took the penalties... Talent
I agree about the roof - it doesn't look or sound right, but I'd rather have that than delayed or on-off matches and possibly slippery grass.
Interesting to read the footie tweets. I inadvertently caught the tail-end of extra time of this match and the commentators mentioned Andy and his match tomorrow. Not sure what the connection was other than it's well known that Andy is footie mad and so was bound to be watching.
I'm not into footie myself but I feel penalty shoot-outs should be abolished. It's a team sport, after all, so why should the ultimate outcome depend on individual performances? My heart always goes out to the player who misses that one vital goal and so costs his team the match or, worse, a coveted trophy. I can only imagine how they must feel. At least in tie-breakers it's each player for him/herself.
