<shields eyes from horror>

Yes, also doing loads of stuff, in advance of 2pm. Including buying a couple of bottles of cold cider. Today seems like a cider day.

Lol @ stila on previous thread - nope, no idea who Djok is playing today - anybody??

Magi Radio said its 12.50 - in a panic for you - 12.50 not 2pm.... shock don't miss the start.

Dd is at cadet hut, the bus is out, they are off someplace for the day so I have to go upstairs and make a show of cleaning up bedroom and bathroom.
Who in God's hell has a kids party on Wimbledon men's final Doc Sacrebleu!

sieze 12.50 is the start of BBC coverage. An hour of waffle. Play starts at 2pm.

Have checked that on official Wimbledon site but thanks for worrying.

MUST do stuff!

Maybe 12.50pm is start of John Inverdale pretending he didn't mean what he said about the women's champion.

Utter twat that Inverdale. You expect that kind of comment from twitter trolls, not BBC commentators.

Twat.

Come on Andy

Just signing in.

I am horrified by those comments from John Inverdale, what an absolute twat.

So looking forward to this afternoon. DH is out doing his hobby at the moment, so this afternoon he is on childcare duties AND has volunteered to cook the dinner so that I can watch the tennis unmolested. Lovely, lovely man.

<<one bedroom down - coffee break before bathroom>>

John Inverdale has horrible teeth. So there.
And if you hit a ball at him? He'd run crying to hide behind the BBC camera man.
Team Bartoli! I hope she walks past him and accidentally kicks him in his paltry shin with her superb right foot, which she is bound to have on account of the fact she's lovely.

Team, on the fence, today as said in previous thread - I don't care, am past it, just want a great match and the best player to win.

If I am not back on thread in 1 hour dial 999 - the filthy bathroom has killed me.

siezethenight Sun 07-Jul-13 09:44:52

shock Your dh molests you ali envy I am single.... Can you tell grin

Maryz Sun 07-Jul-13 09:49:57

Haha at such a sensible title, with no apostrophes at all but lots of exclamation marks

I will be ready, remote hidden and ipad secured at 2.

I might have to send all the kids out.

sarahtigh Sun 07-Jul-13 09:50:03

2pm is when players come out for photo and warm up etc proper play will start about 2.10-2.15pm

Andy can win he has beated novak before but it will be tight I hope he wins but I also hope it is a good match really want Andy to win Wimbledon (partly to stop the 77 years since.... blah blah comments)

<ponders reporting title, just to see how long KateS takes to change it>

Maryz Sun 07-Jul-13 09:54:19

I want it to go to five sets.

I want the crowd to support great play.

I don't want either of them to get booed.

And I suppose I'd like Murray to win in the end, because I think he deserves one Wimbledon win, but I dread the media frenzy if he does and I still like Djokovitch - he is a great player and a nice guy (judging on radio interviews, the opinion of the other players etc), despite what some people seem to think.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sun 07-Jul-13 09:55:59

seize not as much as he used to! grin Only through lack of opportunity due to small children.

BBMs Sun 07-Jul-13 09:56:10

Good morning!
Can anyone tell me what the comments about Bartoli were about? I was at a friend's house yesterday and couldn't really watch anything tennis related much sad

TheDoctrineOfAllan Sun 07-Jul-13 09:56:47

What did John I say?

Raahh Sun 07-Jul-13 09:57:36
