Am glad the apostrophe was a phone inspired one (I am a bit of a pedant it has to be said grin)

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 07:16:19

Miranda, you're right. And yes, most matches did seem to start at 2, I'm sure.

I've started a new thread, but can't link cos I'm on my phone. Please try to ignore the apostrophe in the title[ grin] maybe mnhq can amend it, before a bunch of smart arses spend all the thread commenting on it! ( Olivia- where are you?!)

Hmm my googling isn't working well this morning. Both the finals do start at 2pm though smile

From 2015 it's going to start a week later.

MirandaWest Sat 06-Jul-13 07:04:44

Don't the finals start at 2pm? In fact didn't all matches use to start at 2pm years ago? Am sure I remember them sometimes starting early when it had rained a lot in previous days. Could be my memory playing tricks on me of course.

Raahh Sat 06-Jul-13 07:01:59

It's the ladies final today, which I think could be a really good one- 1pm start, I imagine.

ShaggingZumbaStylee Sat 06-Jul-13 06:59:47

when is the final - today? I am a bit of a tennis virgin but could get in to it for the final if MNing at same time guess!

Is it just me or does the guardian tennis commentary read like its translated from another language? It's weird.

Murraytowin Fri 05-Jul-13 23:12:03

Hahaha that too!

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 22:10:12

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

I can't believe how fast this year has gone sad

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 22:03:20

Game- I think the Olympics have that one- we had about 3 threads, just for the opening ceremony!!

GameSetAndMatch Fri 05-Jul-13 22:01:28

well need a new thread for tomorrow again.

is this a mumsnet record, so many threads for one subject?

Murraytowin Fri 05-Jul-13 22:01:02

Ha seizethenight, not like it was the most subtle name change ever!

It's going to be rammed in the mount so probably going to go early to try and bags eye a spot.

Night all, will try to negotiate the stairs without falling up them! Thanks for today.

Uh.. Why did you name change? Oh!! I got it! Murray to win - duh...

FarleyD Fri 05-Jul-13 21:56:59

Thanks for sympathy Raahh, silly isn't it?! The silver lining is this thread and all the lovely chatting we've done smile

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:56:30

Right- I'm off to tidy the kitchen.


Murraytowin Fri 05-Jul-13 21:55:58

Have name changed for this but is anyone else going on Sunday? We have no1 court tickets but are going to just use them as ground passes and head to Murray Mount for the final! So excited now.

Can anyone think of a super clever banner for me and dc to make?!

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:55:51

Farly- re-MrsV, no. I'm quite sad really, it's great having her on the tennis threads- though Sunday's final would be her worst nightmare (we are very similar in our allegiancesgrin)

siezethenight Fri 05-Jul-13 21:54:41

Yes - morning - everything is always better in the morning grin I am such a lightweight - I would be a really cheap date.

Raahh Fri 05-Jul-13 21:54:14

oh, Farley sad

I felt terrible on the first Monday when Rafa went out. But you've all kept my spirits upgrinAnd I've re-discovered Del Potato, which is nice.

HappyAsEyeAm Fri 05-Jul-13 21:54:08

What an exhausting day. I was so involved in the matches, I forgot to come back to the thread after the school run. The Del Potato match was a proper thriller wasn't it. The Murray natch was never going to come close.
