I really don't think God has anything to do with that, although some might say that God is testing him, although for what purpose I wouldn't know.
   Andy would be the first to say that he alone was responsible for his performance on a tennis court. If you start to devolve responsibility or blame to real or imagined external agencies you are giving up before you start.

I have posted the above comment, which was practically the first one I saw of the thousand + on the article above which Aileen posted, because on the article she posted on Tuesday from the same source, some very interesting videos , along with the vast number of comments, were taken down very quickly!

As an Aussie, I am ecstatic polls are showing Brits are wanting to leave that dreadful union. What country with any dignity, that fought off invading foreigners at immense human sacrifice, would turn over their governmental powers, taxpayer's money, border control, to the same mob. Just looking at Merkel, Hollande, Junckers makes me feel ill. Just go you bonza British people - put it right up them. Retrieve your borders, culture, democracy and tell Brussels dictators to get stuffed. Good luck. Beside you all the way. Happy days will soon be here again - it's going to take some cleaning up the mess that has been made, and all done without your citizens even being consulted! Get out now because if you don't, a no vote will be a green card to total destruction of what remains of your fading beautiful country.

People have probably seen the reports about umpires being involved in betting scams.

It was interesting and I thought a bit discouraging that the tennis authorities chose not to make the umpire bans public. We have heard of the 'silent ban' theory in relation to one of the current top players., and the apparent intinct for secrecy wont dispel such rumours.

This is another of my favourite poems because of its haunting beauty -

By William Wordsworth

Behold her, single in the field,
Yon solitary Highland Lass!
Reaping and singing by herself;
Stop here, or gently pass!
Alone she cuts and binds the grain,
And sings a melancholy strain;
O listen! for the Vale profound
Is overflowing with the sound.

No Nightingale did ever chaunt
More welcome notes to weary bands
Of travellers in some shady haunt,
Among Arabian sands:
A voice so thrilling ne'er was heard
In spring-time from the Cuckoo-bird,
Breaking the silence of the seas
Among the farthest Hebrides.

Will no one tell me what she sings?—
Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
For old, unhappy, far-off things,
And battles long ago:
Or is it some more humble lay,
Familiar matter of to-day?
Some natural sorrow, loss, or pain,
That has been, and may be again?

Whate'er the theme, the Maiden sang
As if her song could have no ending;
I saw her singing at her work,
And o'er the sickle bending;—
I listened, motionless and still;
And, as I mounted up the hill,
The music in my heart I bore,
Long after it was heard no more.
