I'm watching the final again now. Just into the second set. As for 2012, you're braver than me. I've got it on DVD, but I still can't make myself watch it. Maybe one day.

By the way, that website I mentioned before has got all of Andy's Wimbledon matches on DVD. They also have the semi and final from Queen's and the Rally Against Cancer. I feel some spending coming on Smile.

The official DVD is to be released on 22nd July, both for the Wimbledon Highlights and the full final on DVD, pre-order via Amazon. (This is not an ad!).

After watching this again today, i have an urge to watch the 2012 Wimbleodn final, i've only ever watched it once due to obvious reasons, but now Andy has won i feel i can actually watch this match without having to worry too much about how i feel about it.

I always hate the post Wimbledon week - there's non stop tennis from Monte Carlo and the big six weeks from the start ofd the French to the end of Wimbledon. This week always seems like you've taken down the Christmas decorations - though at least this time we have some very special memories to wallow in.

Your comment is so true.  For the first time that I can remember, come the end of Wimbledon, I haven't been thinking "roll-on next year".  It's a really calm feeling this week and the newspapers are great to read, still.

It was also lovely watching the documentary again last night, with the new additions - still made the eyes well up.

Just watched the new version, amazing really hard not to get chocked up, it was really sort of inevitable that he would win Wimbledon when the BBC decided to make the documentary, the Queens win, his reaction to hitting Lendl with a tennis ball, his donation for Ross Hutchins cancer appeal it all looked like destiny.

When away from your country for any extended period, it's surprisingly fast how ones accent changes.

Wonderful documentary but.....should have been 2 hours not 1 - to do it all justice.

Are there particular parts added to the documentary that I can watch (ie at the start and/or end)? Or will I have to watch the whole thing again to see the odd updated part spread out throughout?

It's all right at the end, the last 20 minutes or so.

Brilliant cartoon Smile. The politicians will try to use what he has done, but I'm sure Andy won't get dragged in to any of that. Andy just wants to win tennis matches, that's what makes him special.

The way they edited the documentary was pretty good. They just took out small bits and pieces, nothing that would spoil the flow.

I'm going to keep the new version, unless of course the BBC decide to bring it out on DVD.

I still can not get over the crowds on Sunday, on the hill and on CC. It was truly incredible.

Great write up from Simon Barnes in 'The Times' yesterday!  This is just the last part.       "He turned to us in the press-box in his moment of victory. Unusual choice. So it was us scribblers who got that first expression. Joy puts it too conservatively. It was something heavenly, transcendant, unconfined. This was beyond all earthly concepts of joy: this was, for a few moments of eternity, nothing less than bliss. This really is something pretty immense, something nobody fom this country has done since the world was young...... something he has dedicated his life to. He left home at 14 to live and work in Spain in pursuit of this goal. If it's been a long hard wait for us, it's been an unforgiving life for Murray. And it all came to fruition in three long hard sets and by the end, it really seemed as if something more than a sporting prize had been won.....as if some mythical, mystical quest had been achieved. It didn't feel like a mere metaphor....When he at last picked up that Golden Cup, it seemed that this really was The Holy Grail."
