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!!

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

Or we can shut up about politics and get...
So, how long before Murray become World #1? then?

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 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.
