Thread part 2!!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:09:26

Got ya!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:11:13

Well, a few times farley in my life my mother has declared the desire to 'send you back to where you came from young lady!'

magimedi Fri 05-Jul-13 18:11:57

I know it's part 2 - but the last match was AMAZING!

I've been watching Wimbledon for over 40 years & that is one of the best matches I've ever seen.

Am afraid the next will be a let down - but I thinkl the long wait favours Murray.

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 18:12:49

marks place for after shower mnetting. will prob need another shower after THIS one too, for totally different reasons grin. tennis

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 18:13:26


useful link

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:14:01

I feel totally knackeredgrin

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 18:14:24

magi I agree. been watching tennis since early 80's and that last match was up there with the best, prob my favourite caose of the good old fashioned good sprtsmanship to add to the drama.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:14:32

very nice link, Maryz

Diamondcassis Fri 05-Jul-13 18:14:54

Oops sorry, i said hello then had to break off to take DD on emergency library trip then paint Her nails before a trip tomorrow! Was watching tho, what a great match. DD almost stayed when she saw the Poleveriser, COR apparently

NoComet Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:16

place marking, have to attend to RL for a bit.
Hope Murry doesn't make this Brit (English, but spent spent my whole childhood in Wales and my family still live there, and vermently hate devolution/Scotish independence) go through another match like that.

After his 1/4 and DD2 squeezing my hand on Lisicki's match point my nerves need a rest.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:49

I loved the camaraderie during the point where they seemed to be flirting.

i hope this isn't a white wash (in either's favour).

Alwaysbloodyhungry Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:54

Ha ha..I,ve kinda given up since Nadal and Federer got knocked out...I guess the dull scottish pasty one is still in it then....!

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:55

Excellent link Maryz, thank you grin

DH has just got home, he wants my attention. How inconsiderate!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:16:49

I have run up garden, retrieved clothes, run in, slammed stuff into oven and fed cats....

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:18:23

Its bloody Andrew Castle - I asked he not be there - is nobody listening??

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 18:19:33

Here we go again. My nerves are shot to bits. The malt may be making an appearance soon. Purely medicinal you understand. I sat up all night drinking malt with you lot when Murry won the US open so maybe if I get pissed again it will be good omen.

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:15

Oh god I cannot take it.

Andy looked miserable coming on.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:29

My Internet has died. I don't like using my phonesad

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:34

Hello all. Good start.

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:20:52

Right I have had a bath, I have a halloumi wrap and a cup tea, I am not moving. <except to pee>

magimedi Fri 05-Jul-13 18:21:12

I am going to watch this one with wine or gin!

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 18:21:52

Murray not Murry. See told you I was nervous.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 18:23:37

tennis - that's to shove in Andrew Castle's mouth.

Good start Andy.

Ali, tell dh there are two other men in your life right now that need your undivided attention!!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 18:24:51

Sorry, wrong image.

even more useful link

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:25:07

We have moved new thread

I knew they would spoil it today by putting castle on. I might put on the five live commentary

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:25:46

Personalised socks? hmm

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 18:26:18

He is built like a brick shit house. Makes Murray look tiny.

Dd has nicked the telly, so I think I'll have to get Iplayer up on the pc and then I can still mn.

I could knit personalised socks!

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 18:28:02

Stop with the Del Powcho. He's not even playing anymore.

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:28:05

Hugo - thus is the new thread that you've linked to!

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:29:06

I know blush

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:29:07

Okay - dropped dd down the cadet hut - she's got a lift home at 9.30 - what's happened? How is the game going so far?

loopyloou Fri 05-Jul-13 18:30:24

The last match was magic. Excited about this one now smile

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:30:50

Murray's thrashing him seize hopeful

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 18:30:53

Sorry clay, it was the wrong link, I've reposted grin

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:31:03

<settles in>

Thank you for my precautionary text seize!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:31:26

Lol hugo I just got totally confused!
I think its beer time - Friday, 6.30 and tennis.

TheDoctrineOfAllan Fri 05-Jul-13 18:32:12

Weird Hugo, I had a halloumi wrap too.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:32:32

Long What do you think you were doing taking a bath? A bath?? A time consuming bath? Tsk grin

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 18:32:57

Sorry, wasn't referring to you, Maryz. It's McEnroe on commentary. I looked at and admired your links. grin.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 18:33:52

Thanks for links Mary, I'm feeling sad and deflated. But on the plus side, I have more ice cream.

Told y'all!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:34:19

God Bonkers Barker and her channel hopping again.

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:34:25

not as confused as me grin

DevlinMaccabee Fri 05-Jul-13 18:34:44

Another channel change grrrr

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:35:05

I took the iPad in with me grin see?

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:35:27

Heart stopping moment there - lost the TV remote when it moved channel

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:37:04

I love halloumi, in fact I am obsessed with cheese in general.

diddl Fri 05-Jul-13 18:37:08

McEnroe commentating-bliss!

I've told ds the remote is broken, so he is now wondering around saying "boken, boken" with a sad look on his face! I'm a bad mother!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:37:46

I almost forgot to call ds in for teagrin

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:39:22

glaikit -I say that all the timeblush

that and the computer needs 'charging'

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 18:39:32

He'll be fine, Raahh. grin

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:40:12

is it me or is this match boring?

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 18:41:08

Not jst you, hugo. I'm feeling slightly let down.

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 18:41:52

Right walking to train station. Will log in not very discretely under restaurant table

Let them warm up, it will get better!

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 18:43:51

Had to go to pick up DH... Come back to a new thread and 3 pages already!

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:44:01

Wish Janowicz would keep his hat on - can't tell the difference

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 18:44:43

This match doesn't have the same atmosphere as the last one. Yet.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:44:58

After that last match, anything will feel a bit flat.

I bet the crowd are exhausted toogrin

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:45:04

It is a bit slow Hugo

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 18:45:28

Come on Murray! We don't want to be here till 11pm...

bico Fri 05-Jul-13 18:45:36

Cats Murray is the shorter one. HTH grin

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 18:45:47

I'm finding it a bit hard to care tbh. The one-sided crowd don't help. I find it annoying when they cheer mediocrity just because its a British player.

Save the cheers for great shots please, from both players.

bico Fri 05-Jul-13 18:47:08

I can't see how this match will be a patch on the one we've just seen and I doubt the final will be better either.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:47:13

Couldn't agree more,Mary

Why is Wimbledon live showing some card competition thing????

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:48:14

cats I just keep an eye on who's serving. I can't never tell anyone apart!

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:49:10

I know he's grumpy but Murray has a GREAT arse. Maybe even better than nadal's

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:50:56

Long- shock no way!

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 18:51:17

I agree Long

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:51:59

It's peachy

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:53:49

Had to restart laptop - lost internet completely, everything. Its possibly knackered and needs a bit of a sleep grin All in working order now.

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 18:53:55

I keep losing track Long - children around

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 18:54:22

He's very buff these days.

What's the score?

I just fell over running for the tea

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 18:54:46


Train. Smooth. Made the train though.

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 18:55:27

Might be in wrong direction.

If Wimbledon allowed colours it would be much easier to pick them apart.

I don't fancy sitting in the corners!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:56:00

I thought the crowd would be a bit spent after the last match but they seem pretty vocal!

Oh no chub, you ok?

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 18:56:32

Im back, all refreshed for now.

WAS liking the Delpo link till top corner showed his girlf, all thongs and not much more.

why oh why oh why are these guys so proud to have their girls parade like that on the internet/mags. (Mary Whitehouse hugging me from her grave).

Goint to lock in to match later as poor miniGame needs a break so kids tv for a bit.

cant watch Murray anyway, love him but he makes me nervous!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 18:56:47

Wow, it's woken up.

And the crowd are improving.

I've never seen such a great second serve

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:57:16

You fell over Chub? Running for the train? In front of actual people? Did anybody help you up? Or did they just laugh grin

Did jerky just swear??

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 18:58:28

Where are you going Chub?

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:58:45

Ahhh, he's Jerky? Excellent. Now its a lot easier to spell.

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 18:59:06

poor chub

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 18:59:25

chub was working, weren't you? But I thought you finished a while ago? Are you okay?

PeriodMath Fri 05-Jul-13 19:00:48

Could somebody tell me the score pls?

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 19:01:21

Janowicz serving to stay in the first set

Chub is off out to dinner shock Imagine inviting someone out tonight! And even bigger shock is she accepted!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:01:54

My Internet is annoying me
smile @ Jerky!!

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 19:02:08

They laughed. I pressed on. Moments earlier a scrotey bloke beeped his horn and leered at me, when I ignored him he shouted "fat pig".

I am being reminded why I don't go out.

Ooh right station.

5-6 Murray in the first, jerky serving

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 19:02:32

Game, I'm not sure which girl you can see, but it's possibly not his girlfriend. He was seeing a really pretty model but then another girl released a tape of her and supposedly El Potato having an explicit phone conversation, so girlfriend dumped him. El Pot claims it's not his voice. Girl is apparently chat line operative.

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:02:36

Hello, is it ok if I join? Have been lurking on these threads all week grin

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 19:02:44

Is not a date. Is girls from work.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:02:58

Of course - she's gone to dinner and will have her phone under the table - I remember now!
Tie Break!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:03:33

Welcome fatal stress brought you over to this dark side I see grin

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:03:57

I hate tie breaks.

Bloody hell- how did that ball not pop?!!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:04:38

Has Murray played Jerky before? If so, anybody know the stats? I had to take dd to cadets when they were talking before match so missed it if they mentioned it.

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 19:05:02

Am I a horrible person for wishing my DH took his hay feverish ass somewhere else? He's caughing and sneezing so much I can't watch the tennis properly! angry

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:05:10

chub that is awful!! Bastard

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:05:11

Indeed sieze!

Am liking Jerky but as dp is also a grumpy Scot I guess I know where my loyalties have to lie!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:05:53

Suddenly getting a whole lot more interesting....

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 05-Jul-13 19:05:57

Argh WTF is he doing.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:06:20

1 match each i think, seize, but can't remember where I read that.

nemno Fri 05-Jul-13 19:06:31

The DOD link isn't working so I have to post so this comes up TIO.

Come on Muzza

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:06:41

Pozdrowienia Jurek!!

my Polish rallying cry, courtesy of Mildred

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:07:08

Nice rally!

PeriodMath Fri 05-Jul-13 19:07:42

What's the score folks? Trying to see on telegraph blog bit no update for 8 mins!

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 19:07:46

eugh dh is eating chicken-the noise! <covers ears>

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:08:09

found you! this guy is scary machine

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 19:08:36

Jerzy is a little scary

I don't like Jerzy
He is not v gracious.

Diamondcassis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:09:01

Tiebreak 6:2 to pole

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 19:09:04


FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:09:16

Oh noooooo. Jerky will take first set.

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 19:09:16

6-2 to Jankowicz in tie break

Gie it laldy Murray!

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:09:38


ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:09:51

6-2 to Jerky in 1st set tie break.

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 19:10:12

He is like a monster.

NoComet Fri 05-Jul-13 19:10:16

Here we go again!

<hides behind sofa>

Stila Fri 05-Jul-13 19:10:49

Just read a tweet from a journalist

Editing the @delpotrojuan press conference live. He's happy to be nicknamed #delboy.

Damn we could have got in there and got her to ask how he felt about Potato grin

Diamondcassis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:10:51

1st set Scary Jerzy, might get more interestimg now

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 19:11:32

I can't do another match like Wednesday.

Chub that's awful

TheDoctrineOfAllan Fri 05-Jul-13 19:11:42

I have some "deli potato" salad in my fridge.

It's confusing me.

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 19:12:06

I dunno Olivia.

I'm warming to him. We irish have a soft spot for Poles. The country's full,of 'em.

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 19:12:40


NoComet Fri 05-Jul-13 19:12:45

Why oh why can't Murray just beat people he should in straight sets and be number 2 in the world confused

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:13:04

Not liking jerky either olivia he is very ungracious indeed. I know he has to come out blazing and have an attitude as crowd are against him but he seems almost obnoxious.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 19:13:16

I heard somewhere that he was very bad at school - find that pretty easy to believe.

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 19:13:26

Oh shite

Murray has brought his B game then

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:13:39

I'm with you Olivia though he is quite sexy

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 19:13:50

Not bad academically, bad as in bad smile

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:13:56

What happened chub? Is it the fall, are you okay?

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 19:14:53

I have a soft spot for kids who are bad at school too.

<peers lovingly at sons>

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:15:28

Hah, was just typing another double fault please jerky...phew

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:15:38

chub if you saw the set stats you will see Murray played almost the perfect set - but janowicz is serving out of his skin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:15:46

That's it, can hold out no more - have opened the Budweiser!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 19:15:59

This is the absolutely worst time to break. He'll break back.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:16:37

this is more like itsmile

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:17:39

sieze I'm in the Koppaberg. ds just gone to bed

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 19:18:02

The crowd are cheering mistakes. I don't like that <tuts disapprovingly>

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:18:51

my children are making demands of me- it's not on, you know!

plans to get them fostered out on Sunday

Diamondcassis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:19:26

Does Jerzy look like a young Lendl? Could this all be an elaborate plot....?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:19:51

Maryz- I know. I don't like that.

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 19:19:52

I feel a bit sorry for Jerky - no one's cheering

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:19:57

You should have stuck to your original plan and left them at school. grin

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:22:18

Cats- you should have watched him Wednesday- it was dire, 2 Poles, playing at the same time as Murray. A totally disinterested crowd.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:22:34

Clay- I know!!

You lot have got me watching tennis and I don't even like it much. I should be sorting laundry. What a shame wink

I read somewhere that the big Pole doesn't have much money?

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:23:06

From this distance, on my telly, Murray looks like Tim Henman against Janowicz.

Which isn't good.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:24:44

Is that beer then queef? I only like beer. I can't take to wine. Common as muck me grin

Passthesaltdear Fri 05-Jul-13 19:24:50

Trying to lip read did he just call himself an appalling twat grin

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:25:13

grin Fatal

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 19:25:20

That can't have been much fun Raahh

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:25:31

Amir Khan's wife should have brought her own hat

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:25:47

You been drinking fatal? Give me 2 more bottles of Bud and we can chat about Henman in this semi final...

C'mon Murray! This is more like it!

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:26:44

it's pear cider sieze tis like melted pear drops

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:26:52

Amir Khan's wife is still there shock getting her money's worth out of her ticket today, eh?
Got an understair cupboard you can threaten the offspring with raahh?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:27:01

I'm glad he's won a set- but if he's to get any further, the errors need to reduce a lot.

Think the final will go with seeding. But I don't want Jerzy to suddenly fall apart- i want a match or I will have to talk to my family

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 19:27:27

Appalling twat grin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:27:45

Ohhh, really queef Interesting... I had some Somerset Cider the other week - it was simply lovely.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:27:51

my dear children have decided to leave me alone- i am boring, and they can't wait for Monday, apparentlygrin

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:28:19

Yep, on my second g&t already sieze - d'you think that's why?grin

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:28:47

envy I've never had pear cider, it sounds lovely.

I haven't any vodka leftsad

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:28:56

I will have you know cats that raahh is not an appalling twat, she's a very, very, very good twat grin grin grin

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:29:07

it's a new discovery for me - perfect on a warm day like today

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:29:52

gringrin sieze

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:30:02

Oh my, this is not good.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:30:16

I will have to get some and try some then give verdict - hiccup...

roundtoit Fri 05-Jul-13 19:30:37

i hate this kind of tennis when it all depends on the serve, and the power of the shots.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:30:42

Come on Andy!!

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 19:31:09


BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 19:31:47

Can't watch this! I think I have had my fair share of stress today...

roundtoit Fri 05-Jul-13 19:31:47

I want some serve and volley like Edberg used to do

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:31:58

Yes - back to the tennis now then, less thinking of pear cider Sieze <<dreamily sighs>>

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:33:02

Jerky: ''If only I could shoot lasers out of my eyes''

First Pimms poured

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:33:30

Andrew Castle, otoh, really is an appalling twat.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:33:38

round- there's been a surprising amount of serve/volley this tournament- it's been very refreshing.

Not in this match, thoughgrin

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:33:55

anyone else noticed that janowicz does his haur wuth the towel while pretending to mop his sweaty brow?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:33:59

Fatal- definitely.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:34:06

hair with

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 19:34:33

Oh god I may have to start cleaning soon; I can't take the stress.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:34:47

What, Andrew, like he didn't win wimbledon either?grin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:34:55

Yes fatal now there is a really appalling twat grin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:35:46

Andrew Castle that is, not you blush

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:36:18

grin sieze

Surely atrocious cunt is a better description of Monsieur castle!

I don't know glaik That might be a tad tough on the atrocious cunts of the world...

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:39:04

Ha.., I just saw Cliff and his wig again...

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:39:27

"This Murray-Janowicz match, It's Rocky IV, isn't it? Monstrous, giant, inhumanly powerful eastern European killer, against the everyman hero. Which, of course, means that Murray will somehow come through against the beast. Unfortunately, it also means that Janowicz has to kill Murray's best friend first."

Am reading grauniad live feed too - this made me snark my g&t up my nose

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 19:40:40

"if he dies, he dies"

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:40:52

Brrrraaaaaaakkkkk! God, he sounds like a pterodactyl with a cold.

Fatal! That is hilarious!

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 19:42:38

thers a girl, farley in top corner in a thong thing and it said delpo girlfriend? hope not, hes better than that!!

I have offer pnodered what a pterodactyl with a cold would sound like! Now I know grin

PeriodMath Fri 05-Jul-13 19:45:35

What's the score folks? smile

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Fri 05-Jul-13 19:45:41

Come on Jurek grin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:45:55

Now I have the Rocky theme tune in my brain...

4-3 Murray in the second, Murray serving for game

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:46:23

First set Janowicz, second set 4-3 Murray, who is serving to go 5-3 up.


PeriodMath Fri 05-Jul-13 19:46:36

Thanks smile

Who is jurek? Is jerky an nickname?? confused

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:47:20

<waves> @ Mildred

Pozdrowienia Jurek!!

see- i remembered grin

cut and pasted

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:48:03

His name is actually Jerzy...

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 19:48:14

Im with Olivia, i love Ivanisevic but not when he was playing and being bratty (aprt from the fab Wimbledon win) and I find jerky the same.

want Murray to win for many reasons, but one of them being i want to see him blub again, but with joy this time and have a blub for ross Hutchins too and dedicate win to him. love that bromance tennis smile.

and see Judy win gurning contest!

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Fri 05-Jul-13 19:49:20

Jurek is the Polish nn for Jerzy smile

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Fri 05-Jul-13 19:49:40

Hello Raahh <waves>

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 19:49:43

Glaik someone typo-ed Jerky instead of Jerzy but I liked the typo so I for one call him Jerky! grin.

What time do you think this will finish?

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:50:14

hi, im sieze's dd... she is ironing because she cant handle the tension, just thought i would inform everyone of this fact... enjoy your tennis smile

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 19:51:33

I went and made dinner for the ungrateful brats. I'm a good mum.

Dd tried to change the channel while I was gone, but I sorted her.

And notsodh has just rung to say he won't be home until 9.30 and he has the wine.


Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:51:44

<waves> at sieze's dd.

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Fri 05-Jul-13 19:52:30

OYBBK midnight? confused

I meant to type jerky jerzy but iPad keeps correcting it! It may have been me with the original typo!

Jurek sounds like a name with jerzy as the nn! But I've heard of jerseys before, one being jerzy dudek Liverpool goalkeeper!

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:52:39

Ohhhh, I used to lurve Ivanisovic <swoons>. Don't think Jerzy has quite the same brooding loveliness... He just seems a bit cross.

grin at Judy's gurning. The veins in her neck could give DeirdrefromCorrie a run for her money...

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:53:32

Arf at 'Lendl looks thrilled'

Hello mini seize! May I ask how old you are so I can amend my language accordingly! Andrew castle makes me shout bad words!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 19:53:55

<waves to Sieze's dd, amnetter for the future>

One set all, now it gets interesting.

Diamondcassis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:54:04

Look up Young Lendl pics (can't work out linking), he's Jurek, no?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:54:07

It'll have to finish by 11.15 ish- presuming they stop to put the roof on. Unless it's over before the light fails.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:54:22

Yeah! I robbed laptop back to say yeah Andy! Cheeky mare dd...

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:54:27

3D? Seriously?

I don't think I want Andy's balls swinging at my nose.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:55:03

She'll be on here soon enough mary she's due in 5 weeks time!

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 19:55:15

I am now watching with the crowd on Henman Hill smile courtesy of red button

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:55:15

Jerzy looks very young at times.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:55:44

She's 22 glaik Lol - swear away.... Oh, she wants to come back on....

I don't like Jerzy at the moment, he seems...... Irritable.

Ah, growed up dd! Phew!! She should sign up! <waits for MNHQ to confirm my commission>

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:57:13

i am back... haha mini sieze, i like it

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 19:57:50

i hate andrew castle too

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 19:58:07

Oh goody, we can call each other atrocious cunts with impunity

I hadn't realised they could pull the roof over and play right on!

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 19:58:32

Ooooh Glaik, I didn't realise MN was a pyramid scheme. I guess I'm only level one so I'd better start recruiting.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 19:58:33


Stefan's wife i hate her

Maryz is an atrocious cunt <runs away fast>

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 19:59:18

Stefan! How I thrilled to the sight of your slight mullet, you perfect, tedious dullard.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 19:59:43

Is there anyone who doesn't hate Andrew Castle?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:00:15

OYBBK-it takes awhile for the roof to be put over, and they have to balance the air/temp etc. They can't carry on playing while they do it. They don't want to do it unnecessarily, because it will disrupt the flow.

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 20:00:47

Nope. not liking Jerky at all. not just cos hes playing Murray, just generally. wish Kubot had won their match.

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 20:00:48

Stupid montage

grin oybbk what did you think the roof did?? Sorry I know you are poorly, but that has made me grin

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 20:01:10

I think even Andrew Castle must have moments of doubt about Andrew Castle, Clay.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:01:18

Fatal- shock

Edberg is a god- and should have been my husband

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 20:02:08

His mother must love him.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:02:43

Somebody catch mary she's for it... grin Big Sieze has returned dd has gone back up to her bedroom disgusted that Eastenders has been delayed.

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:02:56

Oh god! I can't believe what I'm seeing!
Come on Andy!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:03:10

I feel sorry for Jerzy- this is such a bit moment for him. And everyone is against himsad

PeriodMath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:03:33

Ah, ease up on Andrew Castle. I used to work with him and can assure you he is the nicest, friendliest, most genuine man. Honestly - he's also very attractive in the flesh grin

D'ya think clay?

C'mon Andy, G'wan yersel!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:03:51

Pozdrowienia Jurek!!

just for a bit of balancegrin

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:04:20

<graciously accepts compliment>

I was a teenager in the 70's nastase fan myself.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:04:25

Period -you won't convince usgrin

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 20:04:47

Raahh - I have very fond memories of watching him when i was a nipper but he's just so... perfect.

(I bet he's a bit of a feathery stroker, actually.)

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:04:56

period Are you Kate Garraway shock

Aw period, don't ruin it! But I am a bit worried about your eyesight and judgement on people!sad

That was meant to be a smile

Or ola Jordan! shock

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:06:49

Nice shot.

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 20:07:05

Just in case.....sooooo hope Murray comes through though.

and hes perfectly caspable of winning Wimbledon at some point.....

there are many players who've won one slam only but that was more than enough, 12 slam better than no slam.

and Andy has the US open.


Li Na- french

schiavone- french.

Roddick- US open.

so not all bad. and ANdys got the game for the Aussie too. tennis.

too much bloody pressure in this country. and anyway if Scotland becomes independant then we STILL wont have a British male singles since Perry!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:07:09

Vamps Jerzy?

Somehow it sounds wrong. But I want him to win this set, then I'll decide who I'm supporting.


Ah, ease up on Andrew Castle. I used to work with him and can assure you he is the nicest, friendliest, most genuine man. Honestly - he's also very attractive in the flesh grin

Period I too have worked (Briefly) with him in a former life too and agree 100% with you.

Vamping it up Maryz are you? wink

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:08:36

Whoops, vamos not vamps.

Olivia............. grin

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 20:09:12

Oh stfu about the roof, honestly.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:09:14

What's he going on about each time he sits down? The roof? Jeeze... Concentrate on the match will ya!

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 20:09:15

Jerzy is a bit moany

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:09:21


Pozdrowienia Jurek!!


Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 20:10:09

What is going on? Is it over?

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:10:33

Oh, okay - I will attempt an appreciation of Andrew Castle then, since he has such high people shouting out in his honour... smile

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:10:35

Shut up Janowicz! And try not to hit children with your racquet!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:11:02

Poor Jerzy. He's letting the light thing upset him

I thought the roof was just for rain grin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:11:30

No chub Jerky is jerking off each time he sits in chair at umpire about closing the roof and when, an hour, an hour and a half, when..? WHEN?

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:11:31

I just had the raging shits during which the cat came in and ate my dinner. I know this is off topic but sad

Not yet chub, one set each and on serve in the third, jerky is moaning abut it getting dark. I think he is scared, bless him.

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:12:31

How cute are those boys?!

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 20:12:33

Ah , but period and olivia you USED to work with him and he USED to be nice.....not any more grin.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:12:45

maryz- he is. Hopefully it will keep him psyched up.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:13:01

Nice catch!

Mainly oybbk, but they can use to to extend playing hours under the floodlights!

Rather vulgar non?



NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:14:43

I hope no-one ever tells wank-o-witz about the roof

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:14:54

Please Murray, get your game together!

Olivia are you on duty! Has the rest of mums net been abandoned to become one huge by fight or have you got back up?

dementedma Fri 05-Jul-13 20:15:53

CBA to read it all - who's winning?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:16:00

Pozdrowienia Jurek!!

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:16:14

I'm getting worried now. It's never easy for Brits is it!

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 20:16:18

Omg Omg! MNHQ royalty just spoke to me grin. I won't be able to concentrate on any more of the match now.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:16:21

(can't let the match finish too early)

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 20:16:29

Long _ I shouldn't laugh, but that is really funny

louisianablue2000 Fri 05-Jul-13 20:16:38

Argh! Andy Murray normally is good to watch because it erases all memories of watching Scotland play football and inevitably losing but i can feel the stress levels rising. I was hoping Janowicz complaining about the light was a good thing but it doesn't look like it.

(nails bitten to the quick emoticon)

Ohwooisme Fri 05-Jul-13 20:16:38

Ooh Olivia I'm with you. V ungracious. I'm using it as an example to the DC about how not to behave in a sportsmanlike fashion.

Level, Murray a break down in the third

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:17:05

Raah, do you have to say Pozdrowienia Jurek Jerzy Janowicz?

That's a hell of a mouthful.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:17:11

I need a wee, can't tear myself away

I can't take this tonight.......

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:18:25

cats sigh, I have to laugh. Now what to make for dinner take 2...

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:18:36

I really don't like Jerky! He's not a very good sportsman in my eyes...

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:18:45

I'm not sure- have to check with Mildred- 'Jurek' is his name/nickname, so I don't think so.

But it isn't as snappy as Vamos!grin

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:19:05

Wank-o-wicz is very good, but it's not my kind of tennis and he's not my kind of sportsman

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 20:19:28

I cant bear to watch. im catching up by popping in and out of this thread.

If jeky wins this then DJOKO to win the final.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:19:36

I think you might have all missed that henceforth he is known as wankowitz

Could you say Pozy Jurek?

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:20:20

I agree game and I NEVER want djokovic to win

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:20:24

He's a confident bloke. Maybe if we had more players like him, we'd have more than 1 player in the top 240grin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:20:32

Oh dear long Is this the reason you keep haing a bath shock grin Pesky cat and all...

Chubfuddler Fri 05-Jul-13 20:21:25

But what channel is it on? I'm on Iplayer and it's not in one or two

LongGoneBeforeDaylight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:21:48

No. I had the bath and I think I got too hot and then cooked, was v dehydrated I think so maybe that caused my tummy troubles?! Who knows

Judy looks like she is going to barf from nerves.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:22:21

Murray will soon start moaning when it's not going his way...

oh, look....

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:23:04

Is she still looking orange Olivia or has she gone deathly white? I was closing my window so missed the shot of her.

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 20:23:06

Isnt jerky wankovic getting any warnings from the umpire then for unsportsmanlike conduct?

seriously cant watch it. whos the umpire?

love the previous umpire James Keothathong grin Annes brother.

One, but if you go to the sport websit the live feed will be there.

I'll go get a link for you chub.

Murraylover Fri 05-Jul-13 20:23:38

Mon Andy!

PseudoBadger Fri 05-Jul-13 20:23:59

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 20:25:33

He's a confident bloke. Maybe if we had more players like him, we'd have more than 1 player in the top 240 We do, just not on the men's side smile

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:25:34

he's only broken back- he's not won it.

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:28:17

In your face, Jerky!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:28:21

Pozy Jurek is good.

I think he is young and demonstrative, and under real pressure. Not unsportsmanlike.

Ohwooisme Fri 05-Jul-13 20:28:38

Fiver says he mentions the lights

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 20:29:06

That's how to hold a service game.

Chotz Jurek it is.

You are all narsty bullies. And the crowd are awful.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:30:16

This is great theatre

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:30:37

Maryz- i agree, totally. Again. grin

Jinsei Fri 05-Jul-13 20:31:00

Janowicz is not vey likeable, is he?!

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:31:02


Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:31:05

Cheering a double fault.

Now that's unsportsmanlike hmm

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 20:31:15

It is definitely not on to cheer a double fault.

MirandaWest Fri 05-Jul-13 20:31:35

Why did the crowd boo? That is very not good whoever is playing angry

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:31:47


Judy looks worried

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 20:32:05

Wankowicz isn't very old is he?

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 20:32:15

x posts, maryz

He smacked the net with his bat, that's why they booed

PseudoBadger Fri 05-Jul-13 20:32:40


hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 20:32:43

They booed him whacking the net I think.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:32:48

Whoop, whoop, whoop..... Suddenly, my mobile is ringing, mother, friends... Oh so now you all are interested!? Huh, amateur watchers grin

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:33:02

I had to take dd to her boyfriend's, back now. With gin.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:33:16

toldmywrath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:33:32

Come on Tim! Did anyone watch the mens doubles McEnroes last night- Macca is soo competitive

MirandaWest Fri 05-Jul-13 20:33:39

Was without posting ability for the other semi as DS stole my ipad to watch minecraft or something like that hmm and I had to tidy and wash up so was watching iplayer on my phone. Was totally incredible - amazing tennis.

This match is not the same. And the crowd are pissing me off.

Plus I am still marking exam papers.....

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:33:39

he's 22.

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 20:33:40

Miranda - Wanky hit the net with his racket when he lost a point

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:33:42

He's 22 Cats

MirandaWest Fri 05-Jul-13 20:34:19

I still don't think they should boo

diddl Fri 05-Jul-13 20:34:19

No you're not, Snowy.

And I hate it when the crowd cheer when he drops a point.

Stila Fri 05-Jul-13 20:34:35

Clay Maryz agree on all points , especially cheering the double fault .

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:34:38

Bring lots of gin farley lots.

loopyloou Fri 05-Jul-13 20:34:49

Macca was so funny last night grin

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:35:00

Jerky threw a strop and hit the net quite hard... I boooed too

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:35:37

Tactical challenge

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 20:35:54

Oh, he's only a baby then - he can strop a bit

diddl Fri 05-Jul-13 20:35:57

"Wanky", "Jerky"-bloody hell, am I back in the playground??!!

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:36:23

I did just say to dp I don't like the cheering when he missed, but if this match were being played in Poland don't think their home wouldn't be the same.

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 20:36:59

Isn't that the second time he's done a body blow to Murray? That's not sportsmanlike!

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:37:06

Got loads seize, and ice and lemon.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:37:39

I would be stropping all over the show.

But he's (jerky) isn't doing much to get them onside, is he. Smacking the net, whinging, body shots. He knew what was likely to happen at a home slam for Murray. He needs to suck it up and get on with it.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:38:01


siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:38:13

You watch the French Open? They boo their own players if they miss a shot, they won;t stand for them if they loose the game - its something he has to get used to when playing tennis - crowd participation. Good or bad.

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:38:19

Come on!

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 20:38:26

Seems a sensible time to close the roof

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:38:27

He's not much more than a kid.

It's his first semifinal. The crowd are horribly vocal in their bias. I'm not surprised if he's a bit arsy. Poor fellow.

Chotz Jurek.

I really hope he wins now.

toldmywrath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:39:26

No it's not even dark-keep the roof off!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:39:31

So, now Andy is stropping.

Diddl jerky is a mistype of jerzy, nothing to do with wanking, from me at least.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:39:48

He is right. Andy is right.

Witt Fri 05-Jul-13 20:39:50

Clearly no love lost between Andy and Jerzy

Murraylover Fri 05-Jul-13 20:40:00

C'mon Andy!
Tea & a twirl. Tennis beats Enders.
Can't believe they might be stopping

Huh oh. Trouble.

toldmywrath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:40:14

Boo indeed. The umpire is being swayed by Jerzy boy.

LottieJenkins Fri 05-Jul-13 20:40:29

Just turned on............Jude Law is in the crowd watching!! YUM YUM!!!! grin

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:40:34

Such a shame. It is not dark. If there was no roof they wouldn't be stopping the match until tomorrow.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:40:39

There is 45 minutes of play left - Andy Murray is right.

MirandaWest Fri 05-Jul-13 20:40:56

Hmm Murray isn't happy about closure of the roof.

Does mean I can mark some more exam paper or so.

Wonder what will happen now.....

Feel sorry for Andy, even I know they've gone on beyond this before.

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:41:03

Now Murray is being moany.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 20:41:04

This is ridiculous.

BigW Fri 05-Jul-13 20:41:43

Andy is totally right, this is an outdoor tournament!

DiaryOfAWimpyMum Fri 05-Jul-13 20:41:43

Bloody hell! Booo!! Umm so what happens now then?

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:41:59

Crikey - I agreed with Andrew Castle - its a first - Olivia you were right!

Referee has already said to jerzy 9-9.15 for roof closure, so why now?

MirandaWest Fri 05-Jul-13 20:42:12

What will happen now about eastenders I wonder?

<gets back to the dull exam papers...>

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 20:42:14

Jerky is a whiny whingy fucker!

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:42:18

I mean they wouldn't be stopping the match now for the night.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:42:43

We wait Dairy till roof is shut, conditions inside are set to play then we continue on... Its unfair, totally.

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:43:06

If they can't be sure of completing the next set they should stop now.

The umpire is right.

I don't think he's been swayed by anyone.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:43:27

I hope Lendel can talk Andy into some form of a better mindset by the time they get back.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:43:49

tbh- it's hard to tell from the tv how dark it is- it will be darker than we can see.

Andy has played with disruptions before. he needs to suck it up.

I doubt very much Jerzy has that much influence, really. Would they prefer to do it mid set?

Murraylover Fri 05-Jul-13 20:44:10

FFS now it's the Sue & Tim show

Here here sue, as much should be played outdoors as physically possible!

toldmywrath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:44:53

I'm well fed up with this-the referee has made the wrong decision IMHO. McEnroe you're lovely.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:45:30

I'm with Mary - he's young and inexperienced, and crowd are against him, feel a bit for him. And Murray has been known in his past for his stroppiness.

toldmywrath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:45:42

And MaryZ you is biased against our lovely plucky Brit!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:47:17

I hope he comes back out completely furious and gunning for blood now - go Murray... Kill the ba**ard...

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:47:33

The entire crowd is biased against Jerky, just trying to redress the balance a bit smile

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:48:15

Farley- I've been doing my bestgrin

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:48:30

Why have Tim and John got ties on and Andrew hasn't? Not that it matters in the grand scheme.

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 20:48:57

Now they seem to be changing their tune.

Tim has just said they would have to stop by 9. So the umpire would be mad to stop them at 4 3 in the fourth set.

Murray benefited from the roof closure in the Baghdatis match in similar circumstances. And no-one complained then.

toldmywrath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:49:09

smile Farley

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:49:22

I know Raahh, I'm with you smile

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 20:49:25

instead of this waffle- lets have a few roadrunners or tom and jerrys whadaya reckon?

Turniphead1 Fri 05-Jul-13 20:50:13

They could put a wee bit of Eastenders on now. To pass the time.


Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:50:24

Noooo, I can't watch this stress monster againgrin

Maybe del potato will win it this timegrin

Jinsei Fri 05-Jul-13 20:50:26

Just annoying. I hope Andy doesn't lose his focus.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:50:39

He is the same age as my dd - if I were his Mammi, he'd be getting a clip around the ear during this break and told to show some respect for his opponent. Quit whinging, quit hitting net with racket, quit glaring and play the fecking game son....

toldmywrath Fri 05-Jul-13 20:50:51

Re run of Jock winning earlier ( there'll be at least one Scot sounding name in the final)

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:51:20

Yeah, raahh maybe - lets egg him on grin

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 20:51:31

I don't think Andy was moaning really - just making a very valid point. Do feel a bit sorry for Jerky though am so wet

Murraylover Fri 05-Jul-13 20:52:37

Better than watching Tim? grin

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:52:50

Wait a minute - Boris can't be commentating - he's in the broom cupboard with me confused

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:53:53

Oh, so nice/sad seeing El Potato again!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:54:20

Don't know what you want to watch Enders for - plenty of drama right here smile
Cracking open another Bud...

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 20:54:27

Agree sieze - he may not be as experienced but he is still a professional, supposedly. If he can't cope with a partisan crowd he's never going to get very far at Wimbledon when playing a Brit.

Anyway, to be fair most of the crowd are probably shitfaced on Pimms by now... he should think himself lucky he's not had a streaker yet grin

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:55:51

Ooh ooh, interview with el Pot coming up! Djok looks good in green.

NoComet Fri 05-Jul-13 20:56:22

After how good natured the last match was these to are behaving worse than school boys.
I hope Ivan Soup Ladle and the Polish Coach give a lesson in manners.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:56:36

seize Boris is commentating from the broom cupboard, haven't you noticed?

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 20:56:44

why isnt Cliff entertaining the crowd meanwhile?!?

wish hed go grey gracefully. love Cliff but not with THAT hair.

women can get away with it mostly but not men (thinking Mccartney)

I think with castle maybe he used to be nice but since scd hes gotten full of himself?

and jerky should know what whats in store with a home crowd.

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 20:57:48

Very disappointed to see Murray react in this way. The mature thing to do would be to act as if this suited him perfectly and pretend that he is delighted the roof is going on.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 20:58:17

djock needs a higher factor sunscreen, his poor nose is a little red!

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 20:58:21

He probably is nice. Just shouldn't be let anywhere near a commentary box.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 20:58:26

Yes farley I allowed it as I was Mning grin

DiaryOfAWimpyMum Fri 05-Jul-13 20:58:26

i have no idea why this is my first time actually watching tennis they are all so hot, well okay 2 of them....

I like Andy, not for hotness, I like any moodier Scot than me.

Oh action.....

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:58:36

I must say, Djoko is very nice in his interviews- very generous towards his opponent. As it should be. They really are good mates.

Well, if it does end up being a Djoko/Murray final, since i'm not fussed who wins it, I might let him have itgrin

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Fri 05-Jul-13 20:58:45

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 20:58:52

Seize - maybe you grabbed Johnson by mistake - they look increasingly similar these days grin.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 20:59:32

Jac- exactly.

Nooo- we want to see Del Potatosad

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 20:59:34

Oh no, no interview with El Pot, they were just trying to get me all excited.

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 20:59:48

Is no one on this thread at Wimbledon. Come on I am sure someone there must be lurking on this thread.

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 20:59:59

wow Djok DOES look good in green! grin.

starball you couldnt be more right. peeking at bits and pieces of match and was a joy, the last match.

although tbf these 2 might be a bit grumpy too as they started so late!

I'm a couple of miles away -- it's REALLY not particularly dark. They could easily have got another set out of it. But there we are.

Cliff looked as if he had been dead for a week.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:00:58

God, Anna Wintour's hair is miraculous, isn't it?

and just taken my meds and im a bit groggy so excuse if i start typing funny! tennis.

come on andy, put us out of our misery, you beat Stan and Marcus under the roof, you can do it again.

and i hope Lendl gave him a good talking to too.

Mary Jo is ageing very wellenvy

diddl Fri 05-Jul-13 21:05:14

Arf at Amir's phone-I thought he was about to tuck into a bar of choccy!blushgrin

Although, saying that, it's dark enough for Anna Wintour to have taken off her sunglasses (I didn't think there was such a thing as "dark enough for Anna Wintour to have taken off her sunglasses")

Imagine the tongue twisting facing the announcers if the final is between Djokovic and Janowicz.

Jo-ko-vitz and Jan-o-vitz? Although some of them seem to be saying Yan-o-vics. Any Polish and Serbian people out there for a definitive pronunciation guide? grin

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:06:19

There is something rather tacky about Amir and his wife. Why are they there, anyway?- eclectic bunch in the Royal boxgrin

Come on Murray!!!! Who loves ya baby!

They'll just have to call them Jerky and Djoky! Or is that harder still?!

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Fri 05-Jul-13 21:07:41


The O is short as in cot

McEnroe's pronunciation is annoying but I will let him off as I love him

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:07:49

Hearts- when i first heard of him, i though he was Jankovitz.grin took a while to get it right. We'll stick with Jerzygrin

Jerky doesn't look as angry now maybe

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:08:34

Sounds like my kind of house seize dd! Did your mam tell you I'm a Swansea girl too? What have you done with her?! And good luck with the baby.

Dh has suddenly gone a bit bonkers and has stated tidying up. He does this during high stakes sports events! Win win for me, tidy house and I get to watch the tennis!

diddl Fri 05-Jul-13 21:09:09

Wasn't there once men's doubles with McEnroe, McNamara, Macnamee & err, someone else?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:11:20

Sorry diddl- posted too soon- didn't McEnroe play with Peter Fleming?

Is jerzy heckling back at the crowd?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:12:19

Dont blame him, glaikit

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 05-Jul-13 21:12:32

He is a stroppy fucker, I don't like him AT ALL

Jerky and Djoky, love it!

Mildred thanks.

Oh I love how you can see the sky through the roof!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:12:45

That's a shot.

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 21:12:50

I wish my Dh would go bonkers and start tidying up. He is next to me bugging my ass by asking all sorts of stupid questions. He is not a tennis fan.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:12:52

Right the crowd want gaggingangry

Murraylover Fri 05-Jul-13 21:13:52

Jerky's lost it

CatsAndTheirPizza Fri 05-Jul-13 21:14:00

why Did they laugh? Was looking at thread

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:14:08

Not funny, Andrew. What if it had happened when Murray was serving?

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:14:16

I am back - I had to hunt down more Bud... It was shoved right at the back of the cupboard. Annoying.
Okay - we are off and this better be good after the wait we endured.

No piles farley otherwise, you are right, you'll have known.

137 mph in the 4th set. Unreal.

He shushed them

Murraylover Fri 05-Jul-13 21:14:38


Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:14:46

Some twat shouted whilst he was seving, someone loudly shushed. The crowd laughed. Twats.

Aquarius1 Fri 05-Jul-13 21:14:55

I have a crush on Mac.

I wish he'd get all angry and have an argument with someone ... Sounded like he was maybe getting annoyed with other commentators earlier...

He is a bit chippy that's for sure.

NotAQueef Fri 05-Jul-13 21:16:37

I missed the whole shush, rewound 3 times and still missed it. Virgin rewind is so crap compared to Sky

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:16:48

Murray is used to playing under roof and after roofgate Jerky is possible toast with crowd and viewers at home. Sigh.... Such a difference in 2 matches.

hugoagogo Fri 05-Jul-13 21:17:02

I go off cleaning when it gets too tense.

I have loaded the dishwasher and wiped the whole kitchen down.

Go on muzza my boy!

You got your way with the roof, stop sulking!

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 21:18:47

Yes diddl. It was Fleming.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 21:18:53

I don't think he's done himself any favours, seize. The roof completely changes the conditions and if he's not used to playing under it his game could fall apart.

Murray's on fire!

Anna Wintour there too looking unimpressed at Amir on the phone.

If I were a line judge I'd want danger money standing in front of that serve!

Allthingspretty Fri 05-Jul-13 21:19:45

Murray looks like he is determined to show his opponenent a lesson


Crikey - I agreed with Andrew Castle - its a first - Olivia you were right!


Aquarius1 Fri 05-Jul-13 21:21:00

Does Anna wintour ever not look unimpressed though?

I knock a ball around from time to time but could someone explain how the roof changes conditions so much? Light quality? Air/wind? Noise of crowd? Sorry if that's a completely thick Q.

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:21:43

Yes - I have amended my ways. Been taught a sharp lesson and humbly apologise accordingly blush grin

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:21:45

Aww, he looks a bit upset, must be hard knowing everyone hates you

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 05-Jul-13 21:22:15

sieze I think what we are seeing here is all the frustration at waiting around all day coming out in both of them. The Djok/Potato game they knew what time they were starting and could focus.

I hope jerzy doesn't fall apart. I don't want him to win, but I don't want him to crumble and hand it to Murray.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:23:08

Humidity and acclimatisation too Hearts

No wind when roof shut, static light from the floodlights, even temperature, humidity and the echo. I think those are the main things.

Tell me, do you pay to be on he hill?


ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 21:25:53

You need a ground pass to get into the ground, but once in you don't need to play anything else to be on the hill.

BBMs Fri 05-Jul-13 21:26:04

Come on Murray, don't get too comfy!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:26:18

Glaikit- you need grounds tickets, iirc. It's not free.

Thanks Farley and Glaikit - and agree about the falling apart. Still, 22 years old and first Polish person ever in Wimbledon semis? No matter what happens he will be able to hold his head high.

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 21:26:34

This crowd are awful. There's being patriotic and being a twat, and a significant proportion of the crowd have crossed the line.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:26:50

Mind you- when i went, it wasn't theregrin

S Judy looking less silver fox than she was on Wednesday?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:27:45

Oh Maryz at the risk of repeating myself, i agree- it's ugly.
Thing is, I won't want to watch if it's a Murray/Djoko final- because despite Djoko clearly being far better, the whole thing will be as biased as this. A total contrast to the atmosphere during the Delpo/Djokovic match.

ClayDavis Fri 05-Jul-13 21:28:00

I think that might be due to alcohol, Maryz. Most of them will have been there since about midday.

diddl Fri 05-Jul-13 21:28:05

"No matter what happens he will be able to hold his head high."-and the fact that he's 6ft8grin

That line judge looked so... smug! Certainly not impartial!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:28:48

Ali Yes, you are probably quite right.

Diddl grin grin

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:29:11

I don't think there's many impartial people in there, Hearts

Ok, like a outside court ticket? I queued once for one of those but didn't get in. Went to Camden market instead! I got a sticker though, saying "I queued at Wimbledon 2001" grin

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:29:47

I'm with you both raahh and Mary, very unsportsmanlike. Dan Maskell will be spinning.

Oh, i say!

FatalFlowerGarden Fri 05-Jul-13 21:30:30

Lot's of players get plenty of support despite being Argentinian or German for crying out loud.

Jacaqueen Fri 05-Jul-13 21:31:20

I hope there will be a lot of true tennis fans there on Sunday who will appreciate the shots and not just the players.

Maryz Fri 05-Jul-13 21:31:27

They used to be like this with Henman. Ugly is a good word for it.

I agree Sunday with Murray will be the same. Until Djok gets ahead and then they will sulk. It's a shame.

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:31:27

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:31:27

Fatal- they were- and shouting when the player is serving is not on.

Yes Raahh and Sunday is supposed to be beautiful and DH and the DDs just will not understand that I will want to stay inside to watch the tennis.

Ooh, just had a thought - would they be doing a big screen anywhere do you think? (a la Olympics or Royal Wedding, e.g. Trafalgar Sq or Hyde Park or something)?

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:32:19

Jac- me too- after all, you don't know who will be in the final when you try to get tickets.

He certainly hasn't helped himself. If it were a different player I don't think the crowd would be this bad.

She's just there for a corporate jolly- i doubt she knows who he is!

Sorry- that was in answer to Fatal

Crowd seemed to have warmed to him a bit - or else they just want match to last longer.

I hope the match ends with a great winner, rather than a double fault

Cmon Andy!
