inscotland Fri 19-Jun-09 13:50:36

he's scottish so yes, british!

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 19-Jun-09 13:51:17

I meant English, oops.

moopymoo Fri 19-Jun-09 13:52:13

i heart murray. (in maternal, oh isnt he turning into a fine young man way) and think hes in with a real chance - but obv improved if rafa not there.

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 19-Jun-09 13:53:14

I am liking his new house grin

I think Murray is great, and there's nothing wrong with his touch of British reserve. Can't wait!

Bucharest Fri 19-Jun-09 14:05:08

S'not reserve, t'is arsey-ness
Has he still got that bumfluff thing going on?

slayerette Fri 19-Jun-09 14:11:11

Is Nadal pulling out? sad

But whose biceps talented playing will I admire now? grin

moopymoo Fri 19-Jun-09 14:14:02

think nadal has knee trouble announcing today if he is playing. I know, his arms are erm, absorbing

Bucharest Fri 19-Jun-09 14:28:07

I could rub it better?

Frasersmum123 Fri 19-Jun-09 14:52:26

Murray deserves to win! Go Andy

BunnyLebowski Fri 19-Jun-09 16:19:41

It's the only way a brit could win Wimbledon. I stopped watching it years ago when I got sick of Sue Barker/Richard Castle's endless verbal blow jobs to the talentless dweeb that is Tim Henman.

Go Nadal.

Tis my fave 2 weeks of the year - I can't wait!!

Besides, this season, Nadal is wearing tops with sleeves so can't drool over admire his biceps (I have been watching far too much tennis whilst off on mat leave blush)

I really do hope Murray wins - I agree that he is turning into quite a pleasant young man now - and who cares about his personality anyway, surely it is his tennis talent that is important???

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 19-Jun-09 16:23:57

Cheers Bunny.hmm

expatinscotland Fri 19-Jun-09 16:24:53

applauds bunny. henman SUCKED.

littlelamb Fri 19-Jun-09 16:27:37

Ah yes, the annual 'let's build Henman up and then act surprised when he loses his nerve spectacuarly' thing got a bit yawnsome

BunnyLebowski Fri 19-Jun-09 16:28:17

For what FBG? Just my tuppence'worth.

Feel free to believe he really was as good as Sampras, Hewitt, Ivanisevic etc and was just "unlucky" hmm

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 19-Jun-09 16:30:21

I never said that. hmm

Just don't see why you have to be so critical.

littlelamb Fri 19-Jun-09 16:31:55

Because that's the nature of sport. Why should we be nice just because he's British. Henman was never a brilliant player (says I sat on my fat arse on the sofa). Ivanisevic, I remember when he won, that was brilliant

FabBakerGirlIsBack Fri 19-Jun-09 16:36:33

I just hate the putting down of Brits all the time.

Frasersmum123 Fri 19-Jun-09 16:37:55

I agree with Bunny - Henman always seem to try his hardest but it was painful to watch at times.

FabBakerGirlIsBack - are you Lucy Henman?

expatinscotland Fri 19-Jun-09 16:38:06

'Just don't see why you have to be so critical.'

i thought she was rather funny myself.
