What a wonderful weekend! Sunshine and baking hot temperatures here in England - and a brilliant result in the tennis at Wimbledon. I've watched all of Andy Murray's matches in the past fortnight and many of them have been absolutely nail-biting. It's like watching gladiators fighting it out, I always think. So different from watching team sports. The momentum can turn on such apparently small incidents and it really is a mind-game as well as a test of physical stamina and skill. Djokovic played a great game too and he's such a nice guy. I have loads of admiration for Murray; he has worked so hard for years and improved every aspect of his game. He deserves this success. And, 77 years after the last British men's title holder, it's an amazing result for the nation to have a British male champion at our home tournament. I hope Murray will go from strength to strength for a few more years yet...
I've pinched the photo, which is very naughty, but I'm more than happy to promote Adidas on my blog... I think it's a good ad. Says it all.
PS: Feel moved to point out that we've had four (yes, four!) women's singles champions in the last 77 years, a fact which the nation seems to have collective amnesia about.
