    A dear elderly relative of mine told me a few months ago to keep this Sunday clear as she has a surprise for me. She's treating me "a VIP ticket to an event south of Nottingham, as you've always been good to me", she says.

    ...as long as she can accompany me, we winks!

    I'll have to drive down "early" on Sunday to pick her up in St Albans and then "about an hours drive" to the surprise event. "Car parking space is included" and she's treating me to a nice lunch, too!

    Now she has always been a sporty type, knowledgeable and opinionated, in particular about tennis and cricket. She loved "young Tim" and "Beefy" was always her favourite. So, with the Mens Wimbledon Final coming up on Sunday, and with the Cricket World Cup at Lords, I'm not sure which it will be.

    I think the cricket is my preferred choice as it is almost a "one off", but I would also be pleasantly surprised if she is taking me to Silverstone for the GrandPrix as she knows I like motor racing. If I'm honest, I would have been really happy to have sat in front of the TV taking in all three, but whatever it is, I'll make sure she realises how grateful I am, bless her.

    She has just told me where we are going...

    Is it the cricket, the tennis, or the grand prix?

    Oh bugger!

    England win the World Cup and Hamilton wins the GP?

    Some home success..

    As for the tennis - I'd like to see Federer win if he gets through the semi final today.

    I'm sure they will have big screens at your event, ZZ. :confused:

    Would having a radio and headphones be considered a bit rude?

    I feel your pain. It's going to be a cracking day of sport tbf.

    Good job you can tape it all or catch up with the highlights?

    The cricket World Cup will have my full attention.

    F1 is just dull. Very little action and they jut seem to overtake each other mostly when the car in front changed tyres these days.

    And I find it hard to get into men’s tennis when it’s the same finalists 99% of the time. Nadal and Federer make it watchable (like now) when they play one another as their styles compliment one another. But as good as Djokovic is, there’s only so much whacking it from the baseline I can watch.

    I have lost all interest in cricket and Formula One is a joke. Tennis it is and hoping Federer wins. Another epic like 2008 would be nice but probably too much to hope for.

    Not if you’re using a vhs player.

    Hamilton is 2nd on the grid behind his team-mate so will probably cruise to win now in the F1.

    Be typical if England totally flop tomorrow in a wider audience.
  17. Of course they are under no pressure whatsoever...

    I think the Irish.. sorry English.. cricket team will be crowned world champs. The boy racer from Stevenage will spray champers all over the crowd with his baseball cap on the wrong way and Andy Murray will become fully English by winning the tennis. He is still in it yeah?

    How will ZZ’s opera end up?

    At least 4 of our cricket team were born elsewhere.

    Morgan, Archer, Stokes (NZ) & Roy (SA).

    Like Margaret Court & me, Roy has a birthday next week.

    I think the bloke with no strides on will win on penalties after the fat lady sings. But it's the ballet he's going to isnt it?

    Poor guy!

    Shouldn’t one of us vouch for his sick note?

    I dunno.. maybe he'll enjoy it. Come back on here all enlightened and cultured and at peace with the world.

    Nah.. sort out that sick note!

    Hopefully we'll get a full match report and ratings for individual performances.

    What an amazing day of sport. Love tennis and F1. Don't understand cricket, but enjoyed the drama of that yesterday too.

    Apart from France, the F1 season has been great this year. Just love seeing Vettel screw up every race. Very funny. Sad for Federer, as the best man lost the final, but the World Cup cricket was excellent.

    Will be a long time before you have such quality in three different sports, all at the same time, and none of the sports being football. Most unique.

    Perfect. Watched the F1 switched over for the start of the Super over, avoided the Tennis.

    If cricket was always one over I think it might be interesting. The F1 was excellent.

    and the F1 one lap? Tennis should go straight to the tie break and all football games decided on shootouts.

    We could fit so much more sport in and it would limit the misery to a few minutes as a WFC supporter. Good plan.

    We'd have been the first side to lose 6-0 in a penalty shoot out in a cup final.
