    I hope at some are enjoying Wimbledon this year.
    I certainly am and was lucky enough to go yesterday .
    What a lot of joy and heartbreak.
    Fingers crossed for Edmund and Konta and of course Andy’s big comeback.
    Djokovic had a big wake up call as the young Polish guy Hurkacz gave him a hell of a game.
    We watched the Coco Gauff game from Henman Hill ,there were thousands of people in a frenzie and the atmosphere was electric......priceless.......she is sooooooo cool in more ways than one.

    The true Wimbledon Champions 2019.

      Really like Wimbledon, it's kind of traditional with me from way back, although I must admit I don't really keep up with it like I used to.
      Looks like you both did well:dbgrtmb:.

          I'm watching a lot of the BBC's coverage.

          But given the fact that they say they can't afford to continue letting OAPs get a free licence, how do they justify paying three people sometimes to commentate on the same match?
          They often start talking over each other, and the beginning of some of the games.
          That was always taboo until this century.
          On a pre-Wimbledon TV programme Andrew Castle impressed me when he said that when he is commentating, his policy is "When you've nothing to say, say nothing." He also said sometimes during a game he turns the microphone off for a few seconds, to make himself shut up.

          My mute button is working overtime.

          Just watching two dynasties coming together(whoever would have thought it).
          Andy Murray and Serena Williams playing for our entertainment mixed doubles.
          For lovers of sport and tennis this is unique............let’s not mention how much they are [email protected]

                I'm just watching Federer v Nadal.
                I used to like Nadal but for some reason the noise is getting to me now, the noise is far too much.

                Hope Federer wins, he is quietly getting on with it.

                        Hopefully Federer wins :fingers crossed:

                        Watched the womens final earlier surprisingly Serena got destroyed.
