The coverage of these atrocities has become maudlin and ghoulish.24 hour Sky news having to interview 13 year girl in floods of tears. Why exactly ? Tell us what happened and stop all the emotional .. Grief should be private .
Well if you think that's bad - what about this?  Sadly these Twitter hoaxes seem to be nothing unusual after tragedies.  How utterly sick can people get?

My main hope is that Andy has finally got over his injury/illness woes and that we don't have to hear him shout on court about problems with his movement, on which he lays so much importance.  How much good the presence of Lendl will do remains to be seen, but my feeling is that any noticeable improvement in form has to come from Andy himself.  Unfortunately the lower-ranked players now see him as being fair game, so he has a lot of work to do.

His former coach Mark Petchey seems to be confident that he'll rise to the occasion though, and we know that Andy in the past has been at his best when his back's been against the wall, so let's hope that he's right and that we will hear the lion roar once again!  At least, from what I've read anyway, he isn't having to put with the expectations of being a favourite to lift the trophy.

^ I meant in tennis terms. Is its use banned? I know Novak had used it at the USOpen.
I don't think WADA have made up their minds yet, but they've been sitting on the fence for so long (at least as far back as 2011) that they must have splinters in the backsides by now.  Too many 'experts' being invited to express opinions, I think, particularly as some say it has no useful effects when it comes to enhancing performance levels, while others claim that it could be a form of cheating, with the usual 'not sures' in the middle.

Thank you Apollo.  It's very much appreciated.

I feel the same about Roger Moore because these youngsters weren't given the chance of having a long life or the talent that might have come with it.  I felt that too about the Dunblane massacre, especially when you think how close Andy and Jamie were to the tragedy.
It's funny that you bring up the Dunblane massacre, I too thought of Andy and what he went through, when I hear on the news last night.  The young beautiful little girl 8 years old that was killed makes me so sad.  Just a beautiful little girls life cut short.
