How many posts did we get to on the old one? tennis

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:09:46

See, i'm so stressed, I nearly missed the Ferrer match.

VAMOS!!!!

Witt Mon 01-Jul-13 12:11:39

Did I mention I saw Ferrer playing when I was at Roland Garros last year? <just trying to wind Raahh up further>

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:11:43

810- but it was getting a bit slow when i had to use my phone bloody virgin broadband

I love Ferrer. Hope his toe is better.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:11:57

dh is poorly today so he can watch tennis

I'm in charge of the remote to make sure he doesn't stray onto the TdF. which does look lovely as it's in Corsica, beautiful. But not as enticing as SW19.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:13:20

Right, David- we DO NOT want a repeat of Saturday.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:14:19

it's raining here- good to see it is sunny daahhn sarf.

amigababy Mon 01-Jul-13 12:15:08

Witt envy

oh no radio 5 is already mentioning Ferrer 's toe, he was delayed 10 minutes in the locker room, they don't know why but suspect the toe. Which is being discussed in great medical detail just now.

Witt Mon 01-Jul-13 12:15:43

I hope that tomorrow's schedule is less exciting because I have stuff to do and I can't put it off another day

amigababy Mon 01-Jul-13 12:16:44

as is Richard Kraijczek 's toe (sp)

I like him. Despite not knowing how to spell his name.

Just plonking my bum down, but I'm off to a funeral soon, then will have a two hour drive home. Gonna need you guys to keep me updated. I'll probably be put the loop til 5ish.

Witt Mon 01-Jul-13 12:17:17

Lots of close ups of Ferrer's trainers just now. Can the commentators diagnose the state of the toe through all that material?

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:19:49

Witt- probably- x-ray visiongrin

Now, I'm happy to massage knees and thighs better, but toes are a bit icky.

VAMOS FERRER

or i will only be left with Del Potato to cheer on!

I am home from the shopping trip. I have hurt my knee, twisted on it very badly while trying to get my Nan out of the way of an Asda worker pushing a huge trolley of stuff.
My Nan went, 'Oh fucking hell, is that your knee gone?' My Nan, is 94 and looks every inch the little old lady - she said the F word shock.

Driving home there are a lot of police men at bottom of road, as in 5 big vans and lots walking about. No idea what is happening, only care I got through it and home for tennis tennis tennis tennis.

I am about to look who is playing at the moment....

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:21:06

Great- poorly toe, no coach, court that was formerly the 'graveyard of the seeds'

it's not looking good.

Witt Mon 01-Jul-13 12:22:58

Is it just me or does Dodig look a bit like Hugh Jackman?

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:23:00

I am watching Ferrer!

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:23:53

Oh no..... I do not like Dodig - I can't take to his face. There is something about his face that is just wrong.

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:24:49

Front looking witt? Yeah, I can see what you mean... Side view and I am off again, going, 'Oh I don't like his face....'

amigababy Mon 01-Jul-13 12:25:23

flowers to seize for your knee. and shock at your Nan!

wonder what is happening on your road? I was imagining you telling them you had to get through as you had some very important tennis to watch.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:29:36

Dodig looks like a Croatian Alistair MaGowan, pretending to be a tennis player.

I don't like him. He's bring back bad Dogsbollocks memories. Someone injure his serving arm.

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:31:24

I said nothing to them ami I just wanted to get home.
We have a helicopter going over as well, very low - bloody irritating as its drowning out the Tv.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:33:37

ooh- it's sounds exciting round your way, seize- i hate Police helicopters , bloody noisy things. And I live near an airport, I should be used to noisegrin

Hope you've got an ice-pack for your knee.
