Good news about the BBC highlights, unless a certain someone is involved hmm

JaneJeffer Thu 23-Jan-20 09:56:55

Thread nearly full. Who's doing the next one? I'm too lazy grin

Raahh Thu 23-Jan-20 09:54:26

Oh no it's Frew.

How long will it be before we get to the shot clock discussion?

Please stop magi !

I like Tim. He knows what he's talking about - he can call himself a 'former British No 1' without being embarrassed, unlike some t##t I won't mention! - and he's got a dry sense of humour.

Raahh Thu 23-Jan-20 09:46:44

Well, at least I got some bits done, before the Rafa match.

The dog will have to amuse himself for a bit grin.

PrivateSpidey Thu 23-Jan-20 09:12:49

grin in fairness to Tim, at least he was at the top of the game (or thereabouts) in his day.

Looks like you were right about Halep Raahh

I'm not an admirer but I don't loathe him as much as you all do. Henman commentating irritates me far more with his faux estuary accent.

Fizzywinegum Thu 23-Jan-20 08:22:16

Stop it now magi - I think you’re really the secret admirer!

Raahh Thu 23-Jan-20 08:16:32

Spidey I checked the Dom match too, when it really looked like he was on his way home. He really turned it round (well, Bolt suddenly realised what was going on by the look of things!).

PrivateSpidey Thu 23-Jan-20 08:14:33

grin looking forward to it magi!!

magi behave! grin

For those of you without Eurosport/Amazon, BBC1 are showing highlights every afternoon from Saturday onwards.

I wonder who will be commentating??

Just for all you secret admireres!!

PrivateSpidey Thu 23-Jan-20 07:47:31

It's great about Gulbis grin
He'll have Monfils or Karlovic next I think? That's not impossible either. Go Ernie!!

Can't believe Them survived that match. I checked the scores at some random hour in the night, and he'd been in front then was 2-1 sets down, it didn't look good at that stage. So good on him.

Argh I never thought of Kyrgios being shown ahead of Stan - yes that's what they'll do isn't it? I'm probably going to miss a fair bit this morning anyway, annoyingly hmm

it is probaby unlikely that Harriet Dart will keep Halep on court for hours before the Rafa match, so I can everything done that I need to grin.

Raahh Thu 23-Jan-20 07:28:48

Well, just catching up on the scores now.

Heather is out - but Ernie is through- go Ernie!

Thiem survived a 5 set match.
Lots of iteresting things coming up later- Stan is playing, and Rafa of course- but so id Dick, so I bet we can guess what Euro sport will show instead of Stan hmm.

I will miss a bit this morning though, which is annoying. I won't mind if Rafa just sails through his match- I'm not that fussed about 4 hour epics when he is playing grin.

PrivateSpidey Wed 22-Jan-20 13:36:11

They should do - surely?? Fingers crossed.

Glad Heather went through.

Great, Rafa and Stan in the morning! If they show them?

JaneJeffer Wed 22-Jan-20 13:28:16

They're showing Dan now. Shame he's gone.

JaneJeffer Wed 22-Jan-20 13:26:52

I see Heather Watson beat Kristyna Pliskova and Caroline Wozniacki is through.

Raahh Wed 22-Jan-20 13:24:15

yay! bear

I was wondering if I would get to see any of his matches.

Raahh Wed 22-Jan-20 13:23:37


Hopefully by his next tournament, Dan will have a new shirt to wear. grin
