I have to say I agree with you. Two automatons playing. I was watching cricket for most of it. The men’ doubles final was five hours long too but that was just superb tennis and full of thrills and spills. Ladies final was a crashing bore as is most ladies tennis. And over paid

OK I have written enough about the tennis and ranted so time to get back to the nitty gritty and let you know about current reading. In the summer months I tend to read much lighter stuff and save What... Continue reading

Well you know I cannot stand the sycophantic gush re Fed and the fans are appalling cheering his opponents mistakes, but this cannot stand in the way of me admitting that his tennis is simply superb. The semi was excellent and I can only hope he beats Djokovic who I find curiously unlikeable
Later this year Margaret - November I think

The tennis was superb. Roger’s backhand was stunning
YES! And her clothes...
If they are good and continue to win then yes they will stay there, but oh so tired of seeing them. Such a boring inevitability about uit all. Watching Djokovic v Agut at the moment. Nole strutting around.
I knew Konta would lose her match. She got to 4-1 up in the first set and I switched over as the Brits always lose when they are ahead. Seen it happen too often.
yay!
i agree with you and the umpires do nothing about it
Always happy to rant!!

Well after listening tot he inane wittering of the commentators I have now taken to watching the tennis with the mute button on. They are utterly dire.

Well Ash Barty has gone too but she seems a really nice lady. The other two, well words fail

One of the commentators was discussing this very point in the mixed doubles match and pointed out how Serena holds her racquet and how it gives her opponent no idea of which ways to go. Brilliant. Coco has gone now which I think is a good thing

Well the latest crop have got nowhere this Wimbledon and, once again, we are left with Rafa Rog and Djokovic and I am getting a bit fed up with them to be honest

RF is a wonderful player and a joy to watch but he now expects all this praise and would be lost without it. I just find him ineffably smug. I do think this grovelling attitude towards him makes my dislike stronger I think Meghan and Harry are behaving in a stupid and childish way. fed up with the pair of them
