Might be over, this match, before we need the threadgrin

UrsulaPandress Sun 15-Jul-18 14:48:45

I feel so sorry for him.

GrouchyKiwi Sun 15-Jul-18 14:49:39

Thanks for thread, Raahh.

I want him to remember that he beat Federer.

aw, its a bit sad to watch atm - however, DH has just brought me a coffee, and a slice of cake , so I'll manage to keep watching

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 14:51:19

Grouchy that's what he needs to do.

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 14:52:39

To be fair, he didn't do much better against Rafa in the US open.

It could be the occasion, he is probably exhausted.

PrivateParkin Sun 15-Jul-18 14:52:51

Thanks Raahh

My mum has just brought in some strawberries and mini meringues grin they'll be gone in about 5 seconds

Merrylegs Sun 15-Jul-18 14:52:57

Oh just added to old thread, (said he needs to channel his inner bad boy and get fired up. Might see him through.)

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 14:55:36

I have salted peanuts.

Oh, you don't see that happen often.

Poor Kevin. Everything is against him sad

ladymelbourne1926 Sun 15-Jul-18 14:57:24

Thanks for the thread raahh
Poor Kevin sad this is not going well.

GrouchyKiwi Sun 15-Jul-18 14:57:32

Hopefully that will help him settle.

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 14:57:50

But hey- he's done better that 126 other players in the draw.

He has to remember that.

I'm glad to hear the crowd cheering for him this time. But they want to see a decent final, no doubt. Will be a shame if this is over in an hour.

GrouchyKiwi Sun 15-Jul-18 15:00:45

Have just seen DoC for the first time today. That's a very bright dress.

I like how the crowd is cheering him too.

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 15:05:28

The DoC looks good in yellow. Heck, she looks good in most things grin.

If Novak is going to win this - and he probably will- can Kev at least have a set?

Kevin is just unable to get anything right atm. sad

bookbook Sun 15-Jul-18 15:09:47

I bet his legs feel like they don't belong to him , so no good for him serving and all the unforced errors must have something to do with the elbow

The80sweregreat Sun 15-Jul-18 15:10:45

Kate hardly seen her children this week! ( not judging by the way !) different world being a royal personage. She alwsys looks
effortlessly cool

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 15:11:30

Djok will be dangerous going into the hard courts/US open, if he's back on form.

Toronto (Rogers Cup) in a few weeks (starts first week in August).

JaneJeffer Sun 15-Jul-18 15:11:37

If he could just get a bit of momentum the crowd would get behind him.

ladymelbourne1926 Sun 15-Jul-18 15:12:21

Tiny break back chance here but I don't hold out much hope.
At this rate it will be over before the footballs even kicked off......thus solving our viewing conflict at least.

DramaAlpaca Sun 15-Jul-18 15:12:25

Poor Kevin. The atmosphere is a bit subdued today. I fear the result of this one is a foregone conclusion, but it's not surprising really.

It should liven up a bit for the mixed doubles final. I'm looking forward to that, I've been enjoying watching Murray & Azarenka.

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 15:14:01

I wish i hadn't seen mine. Driving me nuts

Love them really grin

This morning, I used my Wimbledon 1990 towel after my shower. I didn't go in 1990, I went in '94, but the friend I stayed with (whose dad had a high up job there, hence the tickets) had a cupboard full of old towels and gave me one. And 1990 was an Edberg year grin.

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 15:15:38

This is one of the most one sided finals for a while- and Kevin is not a bad player. sad

But the last two matches will have taken so much out of him, mentally and physically.

The80sweregreat Sun 15-Jul-18 15:16:07

Kevin beat Feds / he is a hero despite today being a one horse race so far

Raahh Sun 15-Jul-18 15:18:06

80s he is my hero, for beating Federer.

I'm betting Sue regrets the 'number 9' tattoo now. grin

The80sweregreat Sun 15-Jul-18 15:19:45

I’m terrible but seeing that Fed smug smile wiped off his face was worth today being not so good.
