I am so excited!

DH takes over all catering for this fortnight (he does it at other times too) so I can plump my cushions, grab the handchange & get watching.

I'd like to be saying who I was putting my money on to win - but I really can't decide between Rafa, Federer Djokovitch & Murray.

I'd just say that it will be one of them and, sadly, I'd put Andy in last place.

Two weeks of tennis coming up!!

Bring it on. wine (pimms) & grin

Studs & cagoules, perhaps a jaunty rain bonnet? Oh yes, liking that.

7 minutes to go! we're all ready. and that magic moment when the umpire says, 'ready, play' and the 1st official ball is served.

seriously, Im like a child at xmas!!!!

and cant wait for the Wimbledon theme music too.

magic!

Vamos Rafa!

I don't really bother too much with the women- but would love to see Robson/Watson come through. Ear plugs are needed for a few of the womens matches thoughgrin

Order of play

Here we go!

Now, I've just got to convince dd2 that she wants to watch...

(was much easier when she was young and compliant grin)

Oh ANdy you're still making me cry with that speech!

Oh that's a handy link, but how do I know which match will be shown. Am on bbc2 at the moment.

The womens are good too, and the doubles.

I feel sorry for Hewitt getting Stan in the first round- but could be a classic.

Love McEnroe.

Is there more than one tv channel to watch it on? Am on bbc 2

It's only on bbc2 at the moment-will be on 1 later. Should be several matches on the red button. (although I can't get mine to work properlyangry)

C'mon Andy!!!! grin

Thanks raah smile I hope your red button behaves soon.

I do have a soft spot for Andy.

I am on strike for the fortnight. Everything can wait.

no no no no no.

Hate tennis.

Hate the way people dont stop talking about it when its on.

Hate the britishness of it all.

JUst no.I will be hibernating til it finishes.

I hope Roger does well- he's a fantastic sportsmen, but to listen to some of the commentators you'd think he was a decrepit old manangry . He's still far better than most of the top 100 put together.

My French / Queens viewing was so bloody sporadic . . . . . things will be coming to a near standstill this next 2 weeks . grin
