And it's a 2 pm start, not 1 as I thought.

Quite looking forward to it really, and I think Lipsticki will have the crowd on her side but Bartoli had made a lot of new fans.

Dh has decided we are having a barbequehmm. Last time he did that, he invited his brother over during the final of the French! shock.

There are doubles finals too- will post order of play when not stuck on my phone.

I will have to follow the match on this thread and radio 5 as we'll be halfway up the M40 at 2pm sad

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 10:29:32

Report me witt!- they've still not edited the title <meanies><cries> sad

Witt Sat 06-Jul-13 10:31:23

I've reported you Raahh you naughty girl!

Another try in case this got missed at the end of the old thread...anyone else going tomorrow and does anyone have a view on what time we need to get there to bag a place on Murray Mount? Or Mound or whatever it's called!

Henman Hillgrin

No idea- but if just getting onto any courts is anything to go by, I'd say as early as possible (and wouldn't be surprised if people were camping out already).

is it mumblechum who is going today?envy. Gorgeous day for it.

Have decided to splash out on some fake Aldi Pimmsgrin

Witt Sat 06-Jul-13 10:51:46

It's called Henman Hill angry

Witt Sat 06-Jul-13 11:03:28

I should be packing <sigh>

Witt Sat 06-Jul-13 11:41:48

Why is noone around to distract me?

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 11:50:57

HesterShaw Sat 06-Jul-13 11:59:34

Come on Marion!

Because no else supports her and she is enjoyably bonkers.

HesterShaw Sat 06-Jul-13 11:59:49

Apart from the French, obviously.

Now murraytowin I like your wording another try in case this got missed on old thread - anybody else going tomorrow? I am going to tomorrow and you are all not - suckers... grin
Please - if you see Boris Becker can you get him to sign something for me? Not your boobs though cause that means I can't have the actual autograph.

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 12:04:13

Hester I am starting to like her- she is bonkers, but seems genuinely nice. I will be happy for whoever wins-I hope it is a good match. Bartoli wasn't exactly pushed against Flipkens, but I've no doubt she'll rise to the challenge of a very competitive match.

HesterShaw Sat 06-Jul-13 12:08:08

Hurrah - another Marion supporter!

Actually, I just want a good final. I'm sure it will be.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sat 06-Jul-13 12:18:24

Ladies I will of course be joining you, but at the moment I'm watching the rugby and it is v.stressful.

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 12:22:09

Hester-I'm reasonably confident it won't be a one-sided affair, which has happened too often in the past.

But then, this has been a strange tournament....grin

I'm also not sure how much I'll see. Dh wants to do the bbq around 1.30hmm

siezethenight Sat 06-Jul-13 12:22:56

I like Marion! I think she's nice. I like Lipsticky as well though and want her to win but I would not be unhappy if Marion won.
Just want a good final match and no more of that Bartoli whacks to win stuff. It was a bit dull in the semi's.

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 12:23:38

They are never going to amend the typo in the title, are they? sad

It's because I'm not a Murray fan, isn't it? MNHQ are making me suffersadgrin

ClayDavis Sat 06-Jul-13 12:25:23

Tell him to do the BBQ, and then he can bring you your food when it's ready.

Why is that apostrophe still there?

bizzey Sat 06-Jul-13 12:27:51

siezethenight Sat 06-Jul-13 12:40:11

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 13:17:14

grin

I'll blame my phone, and say I was drunk at 7am

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 13:18:12
