My god doesnt Andy EVER get fed up looking at a tennis court lol....I know this is hardly hard work but I thought he was supposed to be taking time off?
my reaction exactly Angie.  Now why don't they ever go on about what a great ambassador Andy is for the sport in the way they do about Fed and Nole?
Linda if there were some things Andy didn't like on MW then I dread to think his reaction if he checked it out now!  When I met him at the book signing I said I'm sure everyone on MW would join me in what I had to say and he laughed and said oh you're on MW are you, that's been going for some time?  Or words to that effect.

River/Melody has regenerated twice, which is not the same as dying. River dies in the library in The Forest of the Dead. There is nothing to stop River meeting the 12th Doctor because the timelines aren't chronological. There were various indicators in Silence in the Library that she encountered several Doctors, and I'd love to see Capaldi and Kingston in the odd episode together.

Problem is Moffat messed up River's narrative big time and ultimately made a real hash of it. Instead of letting the mystery of River play out over a number of series he rushed at it and it didn't work out well in the end. But there is, I feel, some unfinished business there so maybe she will be back, but I can't see her being killed by the Mistress - that would be another situation where Moffat thinks he can muck about with the narrative because he 'owns' it and doesn't think other people are smart enough to work it out. The are so many loose ends and dropped plot lines with River that I think Moffat lost control of what he was doing in the scripts and forgot to keep track of the foundations he laid down in SITL and TFOTD.

Remember that she stated her Doctor was an 'older' one and that she travelled with him for a bit? I think her Doctor is Capaldi. It was a strategic casting from Moffat to run the River storyline into the ground further, I think. Yeah it's been stated on several occasions that River met several Doctors. Regardless of whether or not River died, I still would love to see her come face to face with Gomez's incarnation of the Master. River, in my opinion, also has psychopathic tendencies, and as this female Master doesn't try to hide the fact that she is completely off her nut, the dynamic between the two characters would be a sight to behold.

atl thanks for explaining what that idiot Castle said.  Thank goodness Leon Smith put him straight.
Aileen I hope you're right and that Manila is fun.  I'm not sure how seriously they're supposed to take this kind of expo match.  But I guess he might also be treating it as practice and could try out some stuff in a non-competitive match situation.
I've heard it said that if you're a morning person (like I am) you're better flying East (and I am - one long night's sleep at something like a normal bedtime in the place of arrival usually sorts it) whereas if you're a night person then flying West is easier.  We all know Andy isn't a morning person!

yes I think I said on another thread that it would be nice if we could celebrate the fact that Andy has got back up to no 6 at end of year after what has been, as you say, a very challenging and testing year.  Obviously I hope he can move on from that back into top 4 but with regard to AO I don't think it makes any difference if he's seeded 6th, 7th or 8th so not a complete disaster if Bird or Raonic overtakes him (though needless to say I hope they don't particularly as they are my least favourite players)

lashurst and Aileen it may well be that Andy is thinking of Manila as a grand practice session. Like you, I'd prefer it if he'd pulled out so he can get some rest but he may be feels he has an obligation to play as he isn't injured.  

atl re Andy's ball toss:  it was only earlier this year (I think) that he did a series of short programmes with Petch on different aspects of the game and he told Petch the secret of a ball toss is throwing the ball into a basketball net (is that what you call it?) over and over again.  So perhaps he should be doing that.
