I think it's the village hall.  It's just past the large pub and it has a bowling green in the back.

That's what I thought.

Hey conker, you're a Leeds lad eh? Which bit? Do you know of a village called Collingham? On the way out towards Wetherby? I lived through my "youth" (I'm only 24!) but now I'm down in London.


I live in Roundhay, but...

I did a Geography assignment in High School in Collingham about 10 years ago.

I also had my wedding reception in Collingham 3.5 years ago.  Small world, eh?

Once again the media quick to look on the negative side.  When will they realise that they'll only add fire to Andy's belly.  What they forget is that Andy is not a middle class English mr. nice guy like Henman (and I don't mean that in a nasty way, but it is a fact).  The media and all the stuffed shirts in British tennis with all their negativity will only spur Andy on to greater heights (in my humble opinion that is) Very Happy

"His 7-5, 6-3 win over Gregory Carraz in this Belgian Challenger tournament required him not only to impose his mettle upon the capable 20-year-old Frenchman but to overcome irritation when, just as the contest was brewing up to its first critical phase at 4-4, the lights went out. "

"The match with Carraz offered Murray a gentle warning: 18 months ago, when the Frenchman was roughly the same age as the 18-year-old Scot, he too was closing in on a top-50 spot only to slip out of the top 100 after parting with his coach."

What's the Guardian reporter been drinking? Carraz is 30 and in the twilight of his career!!

I think the match very much depends on how well Malisse plays. If he can recaptue the form when he got to the semis of Wimbledon then it might be tough for Andy.  I think it shoud be a close match but i desperately want Andy to get a good start.  The home crowd (if there is any) could give Malisse the extra energy he needs

This will be a tough one. Although Malisse is not the player he used to be, he had a good US Open, but not played since, up until this tournament.

Andy will have to watch out for Malisse's beautiful forehand and will have to extend the rallies, as this is something Malisse dislikes.

Murray in three I think.
