ooh tj you've just reminded me that I've got Today at W to look forward to when I get back home later this week. Oh so many idiots either trying to be party poopers or climb on the Murray bandwagon.
Some lovely pictures in the press today of Andy in an embrace with both his parents and the suggestion is that perhaps this has helped some sort of reconciliation between them - not coming back together of course but apparently they've hardly spoken to each other in recent years. If so, I can imagine that would bring Andy as much happiness as anything.
Enjoy Today At Wimbledon Ruthie, I did!
It seems to me that bandwagon jumpers will always get in on the act. Andy's bright enough, and focused enough, to ignore the lot of it. The thing that doesn't worry me at all is any chance of him getting carried away now, with all the trimmings. He's worked too hard for this, and is still too hungry for more, to let that happen. Besides, Lendl would kick his butt
I saw one lovely pic yesterday from the Wimbledon ball of Judy and Will embracing Andy. It made me really choke up to see them together and see them looking so happy for him. If what Andy did on Sunday brings Judy and Will to some sort of better understanding and peace I'm sure Andy will be delighted.
The one thing that did cross my mind about Andy winning Wimbledon (I love saying that, he did it
!) is that at least he got his replica trophy straight away. I had to smile though when he said in one of the interviews that after the presentation of the actual trophy on the court, he was looking for his name on the trophy and couldn't find it. He said he was getting worried until it was pointed out to him that his name, like all the winners from a certain point (I must read my copy of John Barrett's book to find out when, Andy did say, but my brain has gone!), was on the base.
