Maryz -it was great last year, knowing the grass season was extended. Though Wimbledon looked odd, all pinky/purple.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:52:41

Did we find out where MrsVamos went?

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:53:17

Do the sandwiches tomorrow seize

What an exhausting day. I was so involved in the matches, I forgot to come back to the thread after the school run. The Del Potato match was a proper thriller wasn't it. The Murray natch was never going to come close.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:54:14

oh, Farley sad

I felt terrible on the first Monday when Rafa went out. But you've all kept my spirits upgrinAnd I've re-discovered Del Potato, which is nice.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:54:41

Yes - morning - everything is always better in the morning grin I am such a lightweight - I would be a really cheap date.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:55:51

Farly- re-MrsV, no. I'm quite sad really, it's great having her on the tennis threads- though Sunday's final would be her worst nightmare (we are very similar in our allegiancesgrin)

Have name changed for this but is anyone else going on Sunday? We have no1 court tickets but are going to just use them as ground passes and head to Murray Mount for the final! So excited now.

Can anyone think of a super clever banner for me and dc to make?!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:56:30

Right- I'm off to tidy the kitchen.

maybe.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:56:59

Thanks for sympathy Raahh, silly isn't it?! The silver lining is this thread and all the lovely chatting we've done smile

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:57:49

Uh.. Why did you name change? Oh!! I got it! Murray to win - duh...

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 21:57:59

Night all. See you Sunday. I won't be around tomorrow.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:59:29

Night all, will try to negotiate the stairs without falling up them! Thanks for today.

Murraytowin Fri 05-Jul-13 22:01:02

Ha seizethenight, not like it was the most subtle name change ever!

It's going to be rammed in the mount so probably going to go early to try and bags eye a spot.

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 22:01:28

well need a new thread for tomorrow again.

is this a mumsnet record, so many threads for one subject?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 22:03:20

Game- I think the Olympics have that one- we had about 3 threads, just for the opening ceremony!!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 22:05:22

I can't believe how fast this year has gone sad

auntmargaret Fri 05-Jul-13 22:07:40

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 22:09:25

Murraytowin Fri 05-Jul-13 23:12:03

Hahaha that too!

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 23:42:14

Is it just me or does the guardian tennis commentary read like its translated from another language? It's weird.

ShaggingZumbaStylee Sat 06-Jul-13 06:59:47
