In fairness ive watched loads and loads on Facebook and most folk are just doing it with very cold water, myself included. 

I made the mistake of telling my daughter when she did it with just cold water that its suppose to have ice in it.  Then got nominated myself and she is now saying I have to have ice in mine.  lol. That will teach me.

I don't know how many aces Bachinger fired down against Stepanek, but he's yet another big server and won 36pts out of 44 on his first serve.

odd that he's done so poorly up till now then.  Suggests the rest of his game can't be up to much.   Still Andy is usually pretty good against people who rely so much on their serve.

We did it as a staff today as so many of us had been nominated. We did it after home time and let parents and pupils donate to Mary's Meals for the privilege of watching. We had ice in the buckets but fortunately it melted before it got thrown on us. Was still pretty chilly!!! And we had to be careful how we reacted in front of our large and impressionable audience. Raised £300 so far so worth the indignity! Plus we all donated to motor neurone and Macmillan as we'll.

Apparently it was only 7 aces, which is nothing really.  Also from the report I read it sounds like Stepanek wilted in the heat.  Andy of course isn't under-estimating him.

Yes I read about that.  It seems that once again the dysfunctional LTA could be at the bottom of it, and that Olly, like so many promising youngsters, is also finding the transition from juniors to seniors difficult - so, like so many of them, is he fighting shy of all the hard work, motivation and dedication involved in becoming a top player?  He says though that he's only taking a break to recharge his batteries, but we'll see.
