Wimbledon starts tomorrow! (seeing as its the early hours of the morning!), and I can't wait.
Its a shame that Rafa Nadal has pulled out, as it rules out what would make another brilliant final if he and Federer made it through, however, with Nadal out, Murray effectively becomes the second seed, and you have to fancy his chances this time. He was poor last year in SW19, but since then his game has picked up massively, add to that he has just collected his first grass court trophy. If he meets Federer in the final I am confident he will win, against Federer he is the better player, but the question is, will he make it to the final?
As a big Murray fan I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for a British win on the British slam.
Can't remember the last time I saw anyone at Wimbledon actually drink any Barley water. Its all designer sports drinks these days. I can't think that Robinsons actually get any benefit from their sponsorship any more.
...or launch a new lemon barley water isotonic drink in a trendy squeezable bottle that will look just dandy for being seen with on Oxford Street shopping expeditions whilst traversing the Harvey nicks to the carpark couloir with full carrier bags...
is dependent on the weather. If it's warm and dry I tend to get into the mood, but when rain causes the tournament to stop and start I lose interest. Two years ago I got superb seats for the mens' final, and sat right in front of the TV commentary box. That was certainly a day to remember.
My wife, on the other hand, will be glued to the TV at every available moment.
Now there's an idea, it could be carried by all those people who suddenly feel compelled to walk around carrying tennis racquets, or go to the supermarket in tennis clothes. As soon as Wimbledon's over the racquets and clothes go back in the cupboard.
