Does anyone of you follow tennis?
My husband does. I used to watch the grand slam tournaments when Justin Henin and/or Kim Clijsters were still playing. Since both stopped playing, I can't be bothered by it anymore.
I only watched the female games. They are much nicer to look at. Ronny also prefers the female games. I can imagine that he likes those for a different reason :lol:

I havent watched much although I did watch the Murray game, not the same this year without Henman in use to love watching his games always so exciting and never straight forward.

I'm the complete reverse Jackie, I'm more into Andy Murray than Tim Henman - at Wimbledon, I don't think Henman would've won it in a one ticket raffle granted that Murray could have a few years wait to do so.

Tennis is alright for a few weeks, I wouldn't watch all the various grand slam competitions throughout the year. Wimbledon is enough.

Yes Wimbledon is enough and I will lose interest when Murray goes out, you are right Henman never would off won but it was exciting watching him and the crowd always got behind him, lets hope Murray can do what Henman could not and win it.

I enjoyed Wimbledon much more during the 80's & 90's when Becker, Sampras, Agassi, Graff and Martina participated annually. These players all made Centre Court their stage during that fortnight.

What I would say to Andy Murray: Let your face know that you're happy and enjoying the audience adulation, the British public really want to a British champion - go for it.

I've been watching occasionally. Last year I couldn't take my eyes off the television, but that's probably because I was waiting for my Portable DVD player to charge up as I was in hospital for a week :roll:. I watched the game where Murray won...No doubt he'll lose the semi's...but that's my own opinion...:lol:.
