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

As we're closing inon this first set, here's a new thread

New thread-Second service

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 20:56:56

I'm watching the high-lights programme. It's getting dark behind them...

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 20:55:06

grin

They are a bit interchangeable, the women.

Chubfuddler Thu 27-Jun-13 20:45:50

Is there live play going on? I've just realised I am watching a replay of the sharapova match

<grumbles they are all the bloody same>

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 20:36:48

Chub- it's definitely not down to exertion,is it?- ok, a noise on a heavy serve, - though most of them have pretty weak serves- but on every point it's just ridiculous. And during the French, Azarenka didn't make a squeak whilst she was practicing one dayhmmgrin

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 20:33:21

Hacker the dog off cbbc!

I remember when Edd the duck, with Andy Crane, went to Wimbledon. He was on the score board as Edd-berg. Can't remember who he played...

Chubfuddler Thu 27-Jun-13 20:31:31

This is the reason I can't stand most women tennis players. They are working no harder than the men, there's no need for it. Laura Robson doesn't make these absurd sounds. I'm surprised the all England stands for it.

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 20:28:56

Chub- they should be gagged. grin

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 20:27:45

I found the 'Murray is too good for me' speech from Serena very unconvincinggrin.
She was really thinking:
-Andy Who?
-I would whup his skinny ass.
grin

Chubfuddler Thu 27-Jun-13 20:26:45

Is there really any need for them to shriek with every shot? God knows what would happen if one of these tennis eatern bloc blondes had a baby.

GameSetAndMatch Thu 27-Jun-13 20:13:20

WTF is going on with her hair? she looks like shes got a cow pat on it tennis !!

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 20:02:03

Wimbledon today now referring to yesterday as the 'Twi-light zone' grin

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 19:58:39

I imagine all the players due on the outside courts would have left, when it was apparent all the play on the outside courts was suspended.

DevlinMaccabee Thu 27-Jun-13 19:54:53

Don't see why they couldn't put Robson on centre court tonight?

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 19:53:41

Laura first up on centre tomorrow. Bit of an up-grade, I'm sure she was meant to be on 2 today!

noddyholder Thu 27-Jun-13 19:50:48

My sd has just shouted up 'no more tonight' sad

GameSetAndMatch Thu 27-Jun-13 19:49:54

I was hoping its a ladies match as theyre shorter and should get through in an hour or so.

but there are still lots of other matches to finish.

lets see..

noddyholder Thu 27-Jun-13 19:45:11

Robson?

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 19:43:57

made it look easy in the end.

Now then- the roof is on. A couple more hours play potentially. They get the Dimitrov match on here to finish-it a cliff hanger!

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 18:43:15

And Reynolds looks much older than 31. Life on the tennis circuit must be roughgrin

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 18:41:15

Oh, dear.But good effort there, Reynolds.

There will be no Ferrer tonightsad

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 18:40:25

All the players have stunning wives and girlfriends.
This is why I am married to a Dairy production plannersad

GameSetAndMatch Thu 27-Jun-13 18:38:29

agree Raah was just thinking that, very 'old school'. reminds me of a Roger Taylor/Bill Tilden type. looks older than 31 though.

Raahh Thu 27-Jun-13 18:36:52

Well, I'm not a Djoko fan, but he is needed in the draw. Having said that, Reynolds is playing very well, and is making Nole work for it. He looks looks a bit ''Mad Men'' -esque

ladyr Thu 27-Jun-13 18:24:38

Rafa and Federer out so Murray def in with a chance - love Wimbledon, sadly no luck with tickets this year...
