Here we are wonderful Wednesday

Of course I'm rooting for Ferrer- Vamos! But would love Del Potato to dowell too,so torn.
Kubot/Janowicz, bit difficult to call really.
Would love Berdych to triumph over Djoko- (then Ferrer can whup him in the semi'sgrin)
Am going for Verdasco- obs, as he's Spanish, and it would be wrong not toogrin - I'm sure Murray is not without support!grin

here's to a limited rain disruption!

I would love to see a few of the oldies playing. This made me smile. I really like Martina, McEnroe and Becker as commentators.

I cannot stand Henman, really pisses me off when he commentates.

I'd like to see a Jancowicz Del Potro final!

I agree Chub, I hope the magic pills keep working for Del Potro and I hope the naysayers are wrong about Murray, but he has done well to get this far!

I could almost handle Del Potro beating Murray, that is the final I want, but absolutely want Murray to win.

Kyle Edmund is through to the quarters in the boys singles which is brilliant. It's reassuring andy doesn't seem to be an an abberation, there is some young talent to follow in his wake in a few years.

Good morning all!
I am up and ready to go visit my Nan again - she's got knickers drying over her shower rail and I have to go get them down for her before the council men show up to rip her bathroom out! She rang me last night and said, 'God love, my knickers!?' She can't reach them so I think the community nurse must have popped them up there to dry grin
Well - once AC/DC is done on the radio - I will head off.

I shall be back in good time for raahh's new thread if we are having one and *badkittens' weather forecast.
Am trying to remain upbeat but its Thursday which means only tomorrow to go and then its finals days and then its over sad

We thought Potato said mushy peas yesterday not magic pills so ds now says, 'Has potato had his mushy peas then?'

Morning, I'll have some of El Potato's magic pills. Having had the first pain free day since watching Robson on Saturday, I did my shoulder in again when Murray broke in the 5th set.

Only 4 days of Wimbledon left. sad

Posting on this thread because it's still about yesterday.

Murray's a nice guy - he tweeted this about Garry Richardson's stupid interview questions: 'Don't be too hard on garry richardson he had a bad day and he apologised afterwards'.

Raahh Thu 04-Jul-13 12:10:36

That's really nice of him- I was listening to it on the radio- it was a bit awkward, but I'm sure Murray has been asked daft questions before. Garry was probably as caught up in the moment as everyone else, it was such a big match.

Saw earlier: 'Scotland's Andy Murray loses the first two sets, but England's Andy Murray comes back to win the following three sets'!
