    Was a good day for sport all round.

    Particularly loved watching both the Women's and Men's Doubles Wheelchair Tennis matches in their entirety; and also that the Men's GB Wheelchair Basketball Team won The European Championships in their match vs Turkey!!

    Sorry, I forgot, running the country is just like any other job isn't it? Mon - Fri 9-5.......

    Nothing ever happens evenings or weekends.

    I forgot.

    Come off it. Every person needs relaxation time. You have no leg to stand on with this.

    Not to mention, it'd be a bit odd for him not to be there cheering our country's representative on.

    Nah, it's alright, he left Michael Gove in charge for the day

    I supose it's a question of how good Murray is against Djockovic on other surfaces? He certainly outclassed him yesterday, fantastic match and he solidly deserved the win! I don't really follow tennis (or any sport for that matter) - just watch Wimbledon final. What's up with Nadal and Federer? Are they both still up there, or have their careers now peeked and they now on the way out the game?

    Nadal has alway been my favourite player - shows a lot of flair, entertaining to watch. Federer at his best showed similar moments of genius. For the first time yesterday, watching Murray, I saw similar flair - which Djockovic didn't. Sprinting from one side of the court to the other to catch a drop shot...

    Nadal and Federer went out in first week - Both got knocked out by lower ranked players.. but I think they are starting to wane a little and I think we'll be seeing a lot more wins from Murray now, though I think Djokovic still has a good lead on Murray (11-8) though Murray has won both times on Grass.

    Tennis is about the only major sport I like and enjoy watching. My Mrs isn't so keen on it - but she did watch Murray in the SF and the Final.
