Unfortunately when we lose we do lose and we have to accept it.

 Bad analogy.  When you lose you are spurred to up your game and do better next time.

To me that is unfair and of course we are told we cannot remain because UK is the member. Yet we voted to remain but as usual because England voted to leave,thats that.


You support a great tennis player, you probably support a football team that you think the best and they can lose too.  In life, you do and experience things which seem unfair just because you believe that your choices are the best?  I feel a sense of incredulity in all your statements that others, in this case a majority, have other ideas. Be careful.

Unfortunately when we lose we do lose and we have to accept it.

Breaking news - another lone wolf attack in Germany, this time outside a wine bar near a music festival.  Attacker blew himself up with 15 reported injured, 3 of them seriously.  Police now say he was a rejected Syrian asylum seeker.

I thought Jo played phenomenally on the whole. She clearly had an attack of nerves in the second set and Venus absolutely upped her game, but overall she was the better player and wow, she was really hitting the ball hard. Some fantastic cross-court winners. Not to mention the serve, which was pretty killer, with a lot of aces and a good second serve when the first didn't work. Can't believe it's her first ever WTA title!

LB - Just to make things clear, I too voted for the SNP in the General and Holyrood elections, as well as voting Yes in the IndyRef, but I still don't think that Scotland has a god-given right to remain in the EU just because England and Wales voted to leave it, since until we do become independent we're still part of the UK, and Sturgeon has had that fact spelt out to her very clearly by some of the member states.  Anyway if there is another IndyRef I'll be voting No this time because I can't support the notion of wanting to be in the EU.  Yes I know Salmond was in favour of an independent Scotland re-applying for EU membership, but at the time I dismissed it as being simply pie in the sky.

Also it doesn't matter one little bit which party is in government at Westminster, whether in the EU or out of it, because no matter who it is the rich will still get richer while the poor will get poorer, so don't go putting all the blame onto the Tories because Labour have for long conveniently forgotten that they're supposed to be representative of the so-called working classes.

I have never seen a coach coming on to speak to a player before,what have I missed?
Have you been asleep since 2009?  lol   On-court coaching isn't allowed in Slams though, and the only rule is that coaches have to clip on a microphone so's spectators can hear what's being said -

It has been suggested for the men's game, but the idea has met with quite a lot of resistance - and god forbid it ever happens anyway!
