Hi Aileen and all,
I feel a bit stupid, I honestly didn't realise they camped outside his home as well. That's outrageous. When will they ever learn to give him space?
No need to feel stupid. I just read it in an Andy interview before last year's Wimbledon.
The other thing I meant to say was that the thing that drove me to distraction before the final was people within tennis going on about what it would mean for British tennis if Andy won Wimbledon. Are these people for real? I mean, don't get me wrong, if seeing Andy playing and doing so well attracts kids into the game that has to be good, but I do get annoyed at how Andy is constantly expected to be some kind of figure-head for the game in Britain. Doesn't he have enough to do in trying to win majors?
Many of these air-heads haven't a clue what it's all about so just open their mouths and spout rubbish, although I suppose the only two British players who ever got to Slam finals (once), Lloyd and Rusedski, do have some idea. It's the foreigners like McEnroe and Becker who really get up my nose. They may have won multiple GSs but they should keep their noses out of British tennis and get off Andy's back.
I heard that his Gran and Grandad move out of their home in Dunblane during Wimbledon due to the media, it is really bad if this is the case.
I could well imagine it, but don't they come to Wimbledon anyway? Or maybe that's why they do come?
Coverage of the tournament gets underway on the BBC Olympics 4 channel at 12 o'clock for Centre Court and BBC Olympics 5 channel for Court 1. Channel 20 for the outside courts at 11:30 according to my 7 day TV guide. This is for Saturday.
I've retuned my TV as per the BBC's advice, so hope everything functions OK.
