I just want to cuddle Leconte.

We're visiting family this weekend and it's DH's side not mine, so I will feel less comfortable insisting that we watch the tennis.

2pm OYBBK.

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 08:45:19

They start at 1pm, I think- although 2pm sticks in my mind for some reason. Very excited provided the right players are there smile

ClayDavis Wed 03-Jul-13 08:44:58

Loved Bahrami and Laconte yesterday. Are playing McEnroe brothers today.

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 08:43:41

Just the weather for sitting indoors watching the box thensmile

What time will the finals be on at the weekend?

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 08:42:23

Leconte is great, really funny. It's a lovely atmosphere, when the vets play .

It's going to be a bloody gorgeous weekend grin

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 08:41:09

Arghhh! Sparkly new thread eaten by stupid broadband connection- ( can't do it properly on phone() but it will be along very soon.grin

Witt Wed 03-Jul-13 08:33:35

Feeling all emotional now. Leconte gave his racquet to one of the ball boys (as often happens in veterans) and he played really well and even attempted a shot through the legs. Really got into the spirit of it.

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 08:30:47

Right - am back from schoolrun- sparkly new thread on it's way!

tennis to the cult!

I am up! Its Big Wednesday!
Showering in a mo then popping to check on Nan as council are putting in new showers down the complex (spending actual money mind) then home by 11.30 for Game one, Set one...
badkitten A fine weekend you say? I am washing the quilts then. Long overdue. A fine Sunday on the line will sort them out.
Where's raahh with our shiny new thread!?

Witt Wed 03-Jul-13 08:06:54

Oooh thanks Stila It's on now on red button 302 grin

Weather....

Today should stay dry.
Tomorrow maybe the odd spit and spot of rain
Fri on getting warmer and drier. Sunday is looking positively hot. Temps in the mid-high 20s and lots of sunshine.

Stila Wed 03-Jul-13 00:17:12

Don't know if anyone actually found the Bahrami / Leconte match but I happened to flick onto the red button channel (992) and am watching now . So you may be lucky and its still around in the morning .

<hangs head in shame at lack of multi-tasking skills.>

GameSetAndMatch Tue 02-Jul-13 20:47:33

why does the camera get the womens breasts at the end of the match? the one by the umpires chair?!

wish the women would wear thicker firmer bras!

GameSetAndMatch Tue 02-Jul-13 20:43:27

Chubfuddler Tue 02-Jul-13 20:36:37

HA

Not Sue Barker but you're still good

Well done Chris

Yes she does look odd. I'd never have recognised her if I hadn't been told that was Chris Evert

Witt Tue 02-Jul-13 20:35:42

What has happened to Chris Evert's face?

GameSetAndMatch Tue 02-Jul-13 20:34:29

HAs Evert done her face? cash could do with a tweak or two !

Witt Tue 02-Jul-13 20:34:01

She usually likes tennis. I don't know what's come over her tonight. Both her and DH are getting in the way tonight.
