I referred to this match on the Madrid thread as the name of Dimitrov had been mentioned. Dimitrov led 5:2 in the second set. Diego hung in showing skill and  determination. It was fascinating to watch. Dimitrov had cramps in the thigh, yet he was still able to play long rallies. But after the Argentine had won the second set in the TB, Dimitrov had the trainer on, I think two times. In vain. I am happy for Diego. He is a different kind of player, it was his first final and he kept on fighting. Dimitrov certainly did not win more fans the way he ended the match.

Your point being ...? 

Did you read the article and what Cameron said in an attempt to wriggle out of this accusation?

Also are you seriously trying to tell me that all these city bosses don't know what they're talking about? 

You are making my point Aileen -you are now espousing hard right-wing politics.

I.e. actually COMPLAINING about some minor concessions in what is very politically partisan legislation to help the Tories...

Meantime endorsing  some city bosses moaning about having 'too much regulation'. Mm sound familiar?

ATL,

I followed the scores. Was I correct - just three double faults?  That is a good start to be able to compete.

2 double faults and 2 aces, both in the second set.

More evidence of just how right-wing the anti-EU campaign now is.
Your point being ...?   It strikes me that it's perfectly acceptable for the Remain campaign to do whatever they want, including telling lies and spreading scare stories, but when the Leave campaigners open their mouths they're accused of being too radical.

Did you read the article and what Cameron said in an attempt to wriggle out of this accusation?

"The Prime Minister did not deny a deal had been struck during, adding: "Am I talking to the trade unions about how to campaign and keep Britain in a reformed Europe? Yes I am."

"You can say that this all some  grand conspiracy, the establishment all getting together. Well it’s a pretty great conspiracy to get a Tory leader standing next to a former leader of the TUC saying this is in my party’s interest.

"It is just possible that… it is because we believe this passionately, that it is the right thing to do."



Also are you seriously trying to tell me that all these city bosses don't know what they're talking about?  Or didn't you bother to read that article either?

Jo had a crappy draw in Madrid, but on top of that appeared to be unwell in her first round match against Caroline Garcia. Not sure what it was but she was out of sorts, not moving well, seemed lethargic, frequently sat with her head buried in her towel at sit downs and retired at 4-6 1-2.
I watched bits of it and I agree, she looked a bit lethargic, although after being broken in the first set she did break back to level at 4-4. But at one point she obviously got some clay dust in her eye and had to break in the middle of a game to try to wash it out. She just generally didn't look very happy, clearly something not right.

Laura looks like she may be making progress. Still making a lot of errors on her groundstrokes - needs to be a little more patient at times - but signs of improvement on her serve.

Lost 6-4 6-2 to Azerenka in Madrid, but created a number of break point chances, broke once in the first set, and saved 5 MPs on her serve in the second set. Some good shots from her today, and some strong returning at times. The hold at 5-1 in the second was a battle which she came through. Should do her some good.

Seemed to be hitting with more confidence and she looked like she was enjoying being back on a big court against a top player.

He's been added to mine as well, particularly as the third video clip down in this punny story shows exactly what happened. Frown  I'm so glad he got a code violation for unsportsman-like conduct.

PS - I see you got your wish anyway!

Schwartzman won the final. Cat Karma at work perhaps! Not sure what happened to Dimitrov, but he imploded spectacularly in the second set and then got bageled in the third.

Why break up a winning team? I did not watch today but it looks as though Hamilton only had a problem when he was definitely catching Rosberg.  It obviously was a problem he could not see for himself!
