Well, a few times farley in my life my mother has declared the desire to 'send you back to where you came from young lady!'

I know it's part 2 - but the last match was AMAZING!

I've been watching Wimbledon for over 40 years & that is one of the best matches I've ever seen.

Am afraid the next will be a let down - but I thinkl the long wait favours Murray.

magi I agree. been watching tennis since early 80's and that last match was up there with the best, prob my favourite caose of the good old fashioned good sprtsmanship to add to the drama.

Oops sorry, i said hello then had to break off to take DD on emergency library trip then paint Her nails before a trip tomorrow! Was watching tho, what a great match. DD almost stayed when she saw the Poleveriser, COR apparently

place marking, have to attend to RL for a bit.
Hope Murry doesn't make this Brit (English, but spent spent my whole childhood in Wales and my family still live there, and vermently hate devolution/Scotish independence) go through another match like that.

After his 1/4 and DD2 squeezing my hand on Lisicki's match point my nerves need a rest.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:49

I loved the camaraderie during the point where they seemed to be flirting.

i hope this isn't a white wash (in either's favour).

Ha ha..I,ve kinda given up since Nadal and Federer got knocked out...I guess the dull scottish pasty one is still in it then....!

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:55

Excellent link Maryz, thank you grin

DH has just got home, he wants my attention. How inconsiderate!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:16:49

I have run up garden, retrieved clothes, run in, slammed stuff into oven and fed cats....

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:18:23

Its bloody Andrew Castle - I asked he not be there - is nobody listening??

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 18:19:33

Here we go again. My nerves are shot to bits. The malt may be making an appearance soon. Purely medicinal you understand. I sat up all night drinking malt with you lot when Murry won the US open so maybe if I get pissed again it will be good omen.

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:15

Oh god I cannot take it.

Andy looked miserable coming on.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:29

My Internet has died. I don't like using my phonesad

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:34

Hello all. Good start.

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:52

Right I have had a bath, I have a halloumi wrap and a cup tea, I am not moving. <except to pee>

magimedi Fri 05-Jul-13 18:21:12

I am going to watch this one with wine or gin!

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 18:21:52

Murray not Murry. See told you I was nervous.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 18:23:37

tennis - that's to shove in Andrew Castle's mouth.

Good start Andy.
