Here we are wonderful Wednesday
ORDER OF PLAY

Of course I'm rooting for Ferrer- Vamos! But would love Del Potato to dowell too,so torn.
Kubot/Janowicz, bit difficult to call really.
Would love Berdych to triumph over Djoko- (then Ferrer can whup him in the semi'sgrin)
Am going for Verdasco- obs, as he's Spanish, and it would be wrong not toogrin - I'm sure Murray is not without support!grin

here's to a limited rain disruption!

Order of Play

It's centre court for me today. Not literally unfortunately but those are the matches are most interested in. I like both Ferrer and Del Potato so don't really mind who wins that one but if I had to pick I'd choose Ferrer. Let's hope it goes to 5 sets so we can have extended ogling time.

Oooh, it's the McEnroe brothers versus Bahrami/Leconte first on Court 3. I may definitely without question have to watch that.

Vamos everyone!

Ooooh, just seen that Greg Rusedski is playing in the invitational doubles. You never see him on tv anymore. Thank goodness he doesn't commentate for the BBC (never a fan).

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 09:00:38

Thanks for the order of play Witt, didn't get chance to check mine before my Internet crashed again- grrr. It had better sort it out. Hate mn- ing on the phone!

Witt Wed 03-Jul-13 09:04:56

I'm still thinking a strawberry emoticon would be good. Maybe we petition for that next year.

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 09:06:06

Player stats

Just seen this on my Facebook feed- worrying stats for Ferrer! Vamos- get your bloody serve serve ingrin

ClayDavis Wed 03-Jul-13 09:08:31

I may have to miss work for that and Murray, Witt. I luffs Bahrami and Laconte.

How's DD2, Raahh. Any sign of the pox yet?

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 09:11:19

No sign of the pox Clay- so hoping it's all a big co-incidence that half the nursery at school have itgrin She doesn't go (too young) but plays with a lot of them when the other two go to breakfast club. Fingers crossed it was just a bit of a temp!

With my luck- she'll get it first week of the summer holsgrin

ClayDavis Wed 03-Jul-13 09:14:42

That's always the way. It's a curse of teaching too. You spend all term avoiding the bugs of snotty, coughing five year olds and then catch them all once term ends. grin.

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 09:23:54

Claygrin

When i got it, I'd been back at school for 3 days after a 6 week summer holiday (I was nearly 15), I was off for a further 3 weeksshock - I was very ill, it was dire. My jammy sister had had it in the holiday, and got a total of 6 spots.grin

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 09:26:06

What am I going to do to fill up the next two hours? ignores mess and ironing mountain grin

Suppose i ought to pretend to do something. Back later!

Chubfuddler Wed 03-Jul-13 09:26:23

COME ON ANDY!!!!

just practicing

From old thread:
"Weather....

Today should stay dry.
Tomorrow maybe the odd spit and spot of rain
Fri on getting warmer and drier. Sunday is looking positively hot. Temps in the mid-high 20s and lots of sunshine."

2pm for the weekend is good smile

NotAQueef Wed 03-Jul-13 09:37:57

hope the del potato match goes to five sets so I can catch most of the Murray match at home.
It's a shame they don't give some of the doubles/other games going on the chance to play on centre in between the 2 big ones. to ensure that Murray doesn't start until at least 5.30pm

ClayDavis Wed 03-Jul-13 10:00:19

5.30 would be good. Can cope with missing the first 1/2 hr so 5 would be OK. Failing that, oncology outpatients waiting room has a massive wide screen that always has Wimbledon on it. I wonder if my boss would notice if I disappeared this afternoon...

JaquelineHyde Wed 03-Jul-13 10:09:06

Woohoo men's quarters day!

I missed most of yesterday because of stupid life, so today I am doing a tip run in the morning and then that is it, tennis all the way. tennis

magimedi Wed 03-Jul-13 10:15:58

Bahrami/LeConte are playing the Macs at 11.30 - should be on the red button.

Am SO looking forward to today! Having our main meal at 12.00 so no need to interupt the play for food later on!

NotAQueef Wed 03-Jul-13 10:21:39

I work directly above the SU bar which has massive screens, I wonder if anyone would notice/care.
We are having loads of building work done at the moment here as it's uni vacation time and my manager did just come in to say that if it gets too noisy we can work from home grin - shame it is all quiet right now.

MirandaWest Wed 03-Jul-13 10:22:38

Just marking my place smile

Raahh Wed 03-Jul-13 10:34:37

Ahhh, SU barsgrin

Joining in with the Welsh talk from the other thread, I went to a Welsh university, and it is exactly 20 years on Saturday since my graduation. Have only been back once, when 2 of my friends got married in the college chapel the following year. I still miss the place.

I'm sure it will be too noisy, NotaQueef grin

Is it just me that keeps wanting to type [balls]?

NotAQueef Wed 03-Jul-13 10:51:33

Yes I can feel myself being disturbed by the ghost of yesterday's noise and the voice of my colleague across the room.
