  1. As each month goes by, it's looking more and more incredible that she actually won the US Open. Was it all just a dream ?

    It's an odd one.
    An anti anaemia drug.
    Very much admired as a player and a person so a personal tragedy if this is proven.
    Tsitsipas v the boy band member Rune in Stockholm.
    Rune beat Norrie in three and then Mr Boulter also in three.
    Tsitsipas defeated Ruusonouri 2&2,the Finn having beaten Tiafoe very easily in the quarters.

    No, just an amazing set of circumstances colliding.
    Draw opened up,player on a roll,no fear or expectations.
    As ever people got carried away but ER certainly needs to sort her coaching set up and her medical team out pronto.

    Disappointing for Murray .

    Tsitsipas too good for Evans, likewise Tiafoe for Draper.
    Both British men have had a good year,Draper especially.
    Simon looks to be on his "Wednesday legs" now.
    Wednesday gonna break?!

    Not yet!
    He wins again.
    Well played Gilles and well done for finishing just as our game started!

    Moutet, supremely talented,delights the prosaic Norrie in three.

    Rafa out to Paul.
     
  13. I Blame Bassett

    Simon runs out of steam.
    Alcaraz does not!
    Tsitsipas gets past the enigmatic Moutet much to the French crowd's disappointment.
     
  14. I Blame Bassett

    Alcaraz scratches with an abdominal injury to the Boy Band.
    Tiafoe loses surprisingly easily to FAA.
    ND eases past Musetti and Tsitsi a set up on Tommy Can- You -Hear -Me?

    So close for GB, losing in a Champ T to Sanders and Stosur.

    Another great win for Dart.

    Hazelwood are national 40s champions, beating Blackburn Northern 3-1 at the NTC.

    We each received a red sandwich bag as a prize!

    Stay classy LTA!

    I think I'll buy us a trophy each.

    Oh my GOODNESS!

    Our 10& under mixed team had a match today v Hertford.

    The opposition captain,a supposed coach, didn't even give her players or their parents a running order.

    The parents,who you would think would have A clue, numbered their players in the order they arrived!

    Therefore their best player,a year 6 boy played our third player,an 8 year old girl in year 3.

    So all the matches were a waste of time, rather than being nicely matched. A good job they didn't bring any pets with them to cloud the issue!

    Is everyone in GB tennis completely insane?

    Yesterday the doddery old dame who has been involved with GB Seniors ( anyone over 35) wandered into our court as were knocking up.

    The very lovely ladies from Blackburn Northern looked bemused and attempted to serve around her!

    Extraordinary.
