New thread for tennis fans, with or without the ability to watch on tv. Or even live and in person envy [tennis]

<Serves under arm into the net>

(When should we start pestering for our [tennis] back?)

well done Raah. found you!

Andy played well, and Lendl was watching from the stands.

Agree with whats being said about Isner.

Hes lovely, but has no personality at all. love the way he bounces the ball between his legs tho when hes about to serve.

I think we should have [tennis] back for the French Open & through till at least end of Wimbledon!

flowers for new thread, Raahh

Raahh Mon 24-Mar-14 19:16:06

Well- i had to go out- and Dogs seems to be having a few problems- and the match has been suspended??


Raahh Mon 24-Mar-14 22:32:57

Vamos Rafa!

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Mon 24-Mar-14 23:18:57

Just going to mark my place with this. Hoping it works. Potato after his op.

Raahh Mon 24-Mar-14 23:36:32

awwww- potato!!

Vamos Rafa- beat Istomin quite easily. Not quite Tomic time, but not badgrin

Ooh shiny new thread, thank you Raahh. All the usual suspects through, although slightly surprised that Fognini beat Bust-a-Gut.

Poor old Pot. Think he needs special nursing? Cos I'm free you know?

Mama1980 Tue 25-Mar-14 08:55:25

Phew I found you all. Thanks raahh thanks
Aww poor potato! such a cute pic
Thanks to my youngest I watched the whole of the tennis last night, rafa looked great the match was dull though istomin couldn't do much. wawrinka through too.

JuanPotatoTwo Tue 25-Mar-14 09:13:16

Oh dear Mama, poor you. Clouds and silver linings though!

JuanPotatoTwo Tue 25-Mar-14 10:59:44

Ooh you've all GOT to see this (if you haven't already). Search "Dimitrov helps ball girl Miami 2014". He's so lovely, just can't imagine him and Shrieky together.

Raahh Tue 25-Mar-14 11:05:13

I've been looking at the order of play- some interesting matches to come- but right at the end, Isner is playing Berdych. I bet that will be thrillinggrin

order of play

I am torn now, as Stan is playing my new best friend, Dogsbollocks. I don't mind who wins, really. I would love to see Tsonga beat Murray (sorry), but I really don't think he will.

Did you see the Ivanovic/Kvitova scoreline. I've never liked Ivanovic- and clearly after winning the first set, she couldn't be bothered anymore and lost the next 2, 6-0 6-0.

(I'm going to find out she was horrifically injured now aren't I? grin)


Raahh Tue 25-Mar-14 11:10:45

Definitely time Gregor ditched Shrieky. He could do so much better. And she makes sweets , ffs.

What a lovely bloke. I bet she keeps a copy of that clip for a long time grin
Shrieky would have just chucked a soggy towel at her, and hissed for a ball maybe


JuanPotatoTwo Tue 25-Mar-14 15:45:22

Shrieky would just carry on playing tennis around the poor fainted girl! And then complain to the umpire that ball girl was in her way.

Where's three these days? Just heard Boris had surgery on both hips yesterday.

Mama1980 Tue 25-Mar-14 17:02:00

Yep Juan getting to see more tennis is always good grin positive thoughts and all that. (Disclaimer am feeling much more awake now after fresh air all day and a lot of lucozade) how's your dd getting on?
Djokovic looks in control in his match.
I really want tsonga to win too, and Stan I think, though dd has a crush on dogs.....

Mama1980 Tue 25-Mar-14 17:06:11

Oh bless I just watched the clip, how sweet is he?! Seriously though nice to see he has his priorities right.

Raahh Tue 25-Mar-14 17:07:25

Ferrer is making a meal of it- as usualgrin but then he wouldn't be Ferrer is it was easy.

Poor Boris- he'll be hobbling around for a bit. Is he still coaching Djok- haven't seen/heard much from him.

LetZygonsbeZygons Tue 25-Mar-14 17:08:27

oh FFS.

Put radio on this morning, expecting to hear the immortal Simon Bates (Smooth radio) and guess whos replaced him? PERMANENTLY?

only bloody Andrew Castle. angry.

he who loves the sound of his own voice and hardly played any songs.

boooooring. why the hell have they hired HIM? hes not a dj. SB IS!

Raahh Tue 25-Mar-14 17:14:46

I have jinxed Ferrersad

Zygons- complain. Loudly. ANDREW BLOODY CASTLEangry

he is awful.

didn't know Simon Bates was still on the radio grin

LetZygonsbeZygons Tue 25-Mar-14 17:18:04

I did complain! told Smooth radio they've just lost a very loyal listener and they'll lose more when I tell all my friends (you lot here!!!!! the AC notfan club!!)

Raahh Tue 25-Mar-14 17:19:15


I might complain too- even though i don't listen. I'm sure there are others who can't stand him grin

Mama1980 Tue 25-Mar-14 17:22:59

Loving ferrers array of shirts! smile

Raahh Tue 25-Mar-14 18:08:39

Well, i gave dd2 a bath, and Ferrer got his act together, so I might avoid looking for a minute. grin

Mama1980 Tue 25-Mar-14 18:19:47

It's still with serve but ferrer is looking tired hmm a few spots of rain though so if there's a rain delay it might help him.

Raahh Tue 25-Mar-14 18:28:02

ooh yes- a rain delay. That would help.
