    Hi.
    I am a tennis widower
    Any advice welcomed (I already do 'watching the cricket' and 'taking the dogs out').


    Nah I jest.

    Love everything about tennis except the English contribution to the game since V.Wade (may her name be spoken in hushed terms) bowed out.
    I still have a wooden Dunlop and white balls.
    And I drink tea.

    Maybe I have been unfortunate, but my first taste of Wimbledon this year was the Rolex adverts on YouTube. Saw a tiny bit of Federer match and the commentators were talking about how much money he made last year. Reckon tennis is just the energetic version of golf.

    Anyaway, I was most disappointed to see no rain on the BBC weather this week when I checked earlier today. But they now have rain forecast for tomorrow. http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2643743 They had said yesterday that tomorrow would be very hot and sunny so they don't have a clue. I still rate Cliff in the rain as the best thing ever at Wimbledon. Maybe Tim Henman can do some comedy jokes tomorrow?

    Talking of VW the old virgin (as my dad calls her!!) caused a bit of a rumpus the other week during the FO by calling Andy Murray "a bit of a drama queen". Apparently the good Ms Murray was not amused!!!!

    Now the rain is no longer forecast. Looking like nice week. No Cliff songs/Tin Henman comedy routines.

    AM will commence his usual spluttering with every subsequent round.
    I'm watching his matches more for the chance to see if greater scots Sean Connery or Ewan McGregor turns up in the audience.

    Petrol-wasters don't qualify as 'great' in my books.
    Until AM wins a calendar Slam(), the greatest Scot will still be Ronald McDonalds.

    Wrong, very wrong SS, not often I concede, but on this occasion given the era that Jackie drove in very wrong.

    OK I'm 25% Scottish but I am not nationalistic in anyway - to put in context I would FAR rather watch Steffi Graf or Justine Henin anytime. But Solid old mate we know you're jesting and more than anyone represent what is brilliant about this place but I suggest you wind in a little. AM has arguably a more complete game than Nadal or Djokovic I know when it comes to the latter stages of a major he can fluff his lines, and he doesn't quite have the media presence of Roger but as has been stated in just about any other era he would in all likelihood have bagged several slams and I for one hope he prevails.

    As for Jackie Stewart his achievements were almost without equal and F1 is as much a sport as anything else

    Gawd, shocker of the day. Stratie is 25% haggis and bagpipes. Explains the unwillingness to upgrade the old hifi for yonks and the budget vacations.

    I'm 12.5% so I'm not too afflicted.

    It was a confident display from AM in the first round considering who his opponent was. Agassi's recent interview was probably spot-on - AM could have won a few in the Courier-Sampras-Agassi era. But he's in the wrong (i.e. Super) era and Federer and Nadal are going to be the top two players of all time. Had they been contemporaries with Sampras, they would have made him and Agassi look quite ordinary.

    A fourth SF showing will be respectable for AM. Whether he takes it a step further actually depends on one of the top 3 making a slip-up or injury IMO.

    It's the .5% which explains the cheap DACs and squawky speakers rather than a more sustainable investment

    Its the other 87.5% of my lineage that stopped me from wasting money on that Naim DAC which didn't do shit for my music. I'm rolling around in a heap of Nespresso capsules and KFC as a result.

    btw I can tell that AM drinks cheap coffee.
