God no, YANBU! Tennis not so much my thing, but when the Olympics come around I will be exactly the same, any event, at any time, as many as possible! I will hold on, it will be a bumpy ride of flaming! Enjoy yourself

grin it's not even this years tennis yet though, it is a review of last year wink

you are terribly unreasonable even wanting to watch anything tennis related

Stallion - what's wrong with my name and what has it got to do with my posting about watching the tele?

And Judy - wash your mouth out.

Ooh, thanks for the reminder rosie, I promised myself I would watch some this year!

YANBU btw

Fuckingbastard Daily Politics.

Am off to stick washing out and get dressed wink

BBC2 peeps grin

And I'm still not showered and dressed and DP just rang he'll be here in 2 hours. Fuckity fuck fuck fuck.

<<wonders how fast she can scoot round and make it look like she's been doing stuff all day>>

Gawd, no. If I wasn't in work (having quick tea break now, so no need for judgey pants to be donned in relation to me) then I would be doing the same. I love it, and I was singing the BBC theme tune all my way to work this morning. I will ahve to content myself with 'Today at Qimbledon' tonight on BBC2. I have been known to take all of Wimbledon fortnight off work just to watch it on TV uninterrupted.

FlamingFannyDrawers Mon 20-Jun-11 12:24:41

Yanbu. I love it, I have a thing for Roger Federer.

Andy and Rafa all the way. With a little bit of Andy Roddick thrown in for good measure wink

LOVE Wimbledon fortnight! Can become troublesome when the likes of Andy Murray ends up in a long match which takes us into the kids bedtime routine. But they can fend for themselves grin

Thoroughly enjoyed the celebration of 125 years of Wimbledon on the telly last night. Especially when it showed clips of the old games between Connor and McEnroe. I remember watching them when I was little. I've always loved tennis, even as a kid. It's fun getting my ds's 6 and 4 into it too. They've got to join me when I start screaming "Come on Andy!!!"

HappyAsIAm Mon 20-Jun-11 12:32:02

Rafaaaaa! Rafaaaaa! Though I would lend my full support to Andy Murray if it were ever a contest between the two on the grass. Soooooo excited. And trying to work out whether there is any realistic chance of buying tickets on Ticketmaster for the following day's play.

I remember my mother flipping her lid with me when we were on holiday and I wouldn't go outside into the sunshine because I was watching Borg v McEnroe. Yes I am that old grin

I warned my neighbour yesterday that I was sorry in advance for the yelling at the tv which will occur over the next 2 weeks

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 20-Jun-11 12:39:12

Dunno where mrsdonkeybucket is; she was all over the French Open. Hope she turns up for a chat!

God I love Wimbledon. I'm a freelance and I usually pray for work, but during Wimbledon fortnight I hope to God not to get any, and silently curse anyone who does offer me jobs. smile

I have told DP that he is on dinner duty tonight. He suggested going out for tea, I have told him that's fine him and the DD's can carry on grin

WTF is with that woman's man shorts that's playing Venus?

TennisFan Mon 20-Jun-11 12:54:27

Stop you're all making me jealous - I dont get home from work until 2pm today.
I watch tennis on TV all year round - but Wimbledon coverage is the best by a miile.

FlamingFannyDrawers Mon 20-Jun-11 12:55:44

At a glance the Williams game on the now looks like mens singles. Wtf is Venus wearing too? Net curtain jumpsuit.
