Maybe it will help us to forget the heartbreakingly poor effort by James Blake. He just gave up and lost heart against Mirnyi when he still had a good chance.
We don't mind seeing our player get beat by a better player, when he gives a good effort, but James will have to prove himself to us all over again now.
Maybe he was sick. We hope so.

Well hasn't this just been the GREATEST week, Andy Murray, I take back everything I said to you Margaret he is playing like a winner.
Football tomorrow, I hope it is not at the same time as Andre's match, otherwise the channel changer will be on overdrive
Ponder this! my husband is a workaholic, many times I have asked him to come home a little earlier......... since the football has been on, guess what, he is home to watch the begining of all the matches. Football or Me.................I don't stand a chance...........LOL.
Good to see you back Jacky, missed you heaps........will be in touch.

What a day we will have tomorrow, football and tennis!!!!!!!!! I too hope that they are not on at the same time....... now will I have two televisions on or channel hop......
Keeping my fingers crossed for Agassi, I so much want him to win, if he keeps his cool he could just about do it......Its going to be experience over youth....
The one thing that could go against him is that the temp is going to reach 30deg tomorrow....and that is hot....
Enjoy, everyone......back after all the excitement, we shall all be worn out....

My voice has totally gone much to Ian's delight.
Well it has been a bit of a downer with the football, I never like a penalty finish, but I didn't think the match was that impressive.
Now the tennis wasn't that something else, my big dissapointment was that Andre was knocked out , and what a true gentleman he is, but Nadal is 16 years his junior and what muscles the guy has!!!
I will take my hat off to Andy Murray, straight sets, who would have thought that against Roddick, and Venus Williams out..............it looks as though my housework will have to be put on hold
Hope you all have a good weekend,

What a fine last match for Agassi, he held the game well, I was cheering for him all the way. The crowd gave him a standing ovation at the end.
To play like he did at his age in that heat showed a lot of determination and courage, wimbledon will miss him.....
Nadal showed himself to be a true sportsman.... by letting Andre walk onto the court first and take the applause from the crowd and even though he won he walked away and let Andre have the court to himself for the last time.

A nice sportsmanlike change to the soccer, hey?
Posted 07 July 2006 - 02:48 PM
SO NOW WE KNOW........ FEDERER AND NADAL WILL PLAY EACH OTHER IN THE MENS FINALS.
WHO WILL WIN.... I WOULD NOT LIKE TO PUT MY MONEY ON EITHER OF THEM, FEDERER IS SO GOOD BUT NADAL HAS DETERMINATION AND IS SO FOCUSED.
IN MY HEART I WOULD LIKE IT TO BE NADAL, ITS GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING SUNDAY AFTERNOON....

Both deserved to win the way they played.
Now on to the US open! (hopefully we might get to watch it at a more decent time, but I doubt it!)
Posted 09 July 2006 - 06:02 PM
YES BOTH WERE GOOD GAMES, WIMBLEDON HAS PRODUCED SOME GOOD TENNIS THIS YEAR AND A LOT OF GOOD NEW PLAYERS.
STILL SORRY THAT NADAL DID NOT WIN... BUT NEXT YEAR PERHAPS

Not with me Sandra... My money will be on Nadal or Baghdahs....
Only time will tell.....
