Tennis

Stupendous final earlier, nearly 6 hours of attrition. It's truly a golden era of mens tennis, four of the best players ever all playing each other, ne'er a quarter given, all with amazing reserves of will and determination not to mention unbelievable athleticism and skill. If you like that sort of thing.

If nothing else, this proves that given names influence your decision making processes.

Possible 2nd sporting shock of the night on beeb2 now. Nadal could be on his way out.

The youngest Lady O and I fortuitously caught the very last game of this epic. (We'd turned over to watch 'Mock the Weak' or somesuch drivel.)

Watching live - 4 points, game over, history made. Probably not even two minutes.

That's the way to watch Wimbledon - cut out all the crap.

Good little interview with Boris Becker in last  Saturdays Guardian by Sol Campbell of all people.  Concentrating on what is wrong with British Tennis

The LTA make the FA look almost competent
Late Doors

Despite Sols constant hinting about the LTA BB doesnt openly attack them but it is oretty obvious he thinks that despite all their wealth they are the ones who could make the difference and changes needed for us to produce champion players

Five years and 250 million spent to get 5 uk players in the top 200 (not including Murray)! Epic fail as the kids say.

They ought to put Andy Murray's mum in charge. Looks very scary.

That time of year again. Loads of posh kids looking moody and chasing a ball about. Any sport that Cliff Richard is a fan of can't be right. As for the Henman Hillers, just fuck off. End of dispatch.

Not a bad idea, at least she has one player in the top 200 players in the world.

They ought to ban grunting - or at least call a fault if they go over a certain number of decibels.

Why pick on Grunt. I know his bookswap club is shite, but........
Dock

Just watched AM in the semi final against T'Tsonga.

GO ON ANDY!

I get dead caught up in the moment me.
fartcatcher

still looks bloody miserable all the time. It will be interesting to see if he raises a smile if he wins.
Late Doors

Watched most of it down the Shoulder. Quite a few people actively hating Murray which i find incredible. He's the best WE'VE got FFS, always seems to put everything into it, plenty of guts. It's not his fault he isnt the best in the world.
Dock

The Swiss get! I hope he chokes on a cuckoo clock or whatever it is Switzerland people eat.

Keep the faith Andy lad. Next year Victory will be yours. I love tennis me.

To be honest Grinder, it seems his gracious runner-up speech has won over a lot of people who said he was miserable.
fartcatcher

We Brits love a gallant loser.

His honourable defeat will have won him more fans than a victory.
Grind

British twat then.

I think it was nice that his brother won something as well after being in his shadow for so many years.

A bit like David Knopfler having a hit record.

I didn't know his brother won Something. Is it just me or does anybody else think AM's mam looks a bit like the blonde one out of Beavis & Butthead?

No cheeserolling on telly this afternoon so I watched the Tennis, very good game between Del Potro and Jokavic.
Can't believe there's not any cheeserolling at Wimbledon, I bet Jokavic could roll a nice mature cheddar better than most.
fartcatcher

They could roll cheeses down the hill where all the poor folk who can't afford 200 for a ticket sit.

They could use them as skittles.
