What on earth do you think the Wimbledon doubles match was supposed to be other than a farewell exhibition?
His chances of winning the competition were zero, so it was essentially a vanity/exhibition match

As he is always competitive in competition I thought he was in it to win it, but I'm sure you know best.

My support for Emma had dwindled somewhat so I was delighted to see Lulu triumph in the match.

I went right off Emma when she said she did not realise there was a general election last Thursday & that she would be having a lie in & not voting.

I've been enjoying some feisty matches, but have a couple of questions/observations:

1. Why is Nick Kyrios an invited commentator when he has disgraced himself more than once at Wimbledon - as well as having a Court case for GBH against a girlfriend. I thought the BBC were holier than thou on who they allowed to represent them. It seems not.
2. Anyone hazard a guess as to that moment between Fritz and Zrevev at the net after Fritz won? Apparently Zrevev took umbridge at the over zealous cheering coming from Fritz' team in the 5th set. Zrevev also appears to have a history of hitting women about, similar to Kyrios. So my guess is he said something pretty nasty to Fritz, maybe about his girlfrient - Fritz really looked unhappy/uneasy afterwards. It seems Zrevev doesn't like opponents getting "too much" encouragement? Which brings me on nicely to ....
3. Good ol' Dikovic, sorry Djokovic. What a bad sportsman he is becoming - lashing out at all and sundry. Funny in his game against Hune, he thought people were booing him, when they were actually chanting Hune. So, of course those cheeky Danes did it even more until he looked daggers at them, and then actually put his hands over his ears to block them out! What a great example for his children! :roll:

Long gone are the days of good sportsmanship (for some, not all) with the stakes so high. Apparently the first ever award at Wimbledon all those years ago was a £25 gift voucher at a certain sports shop! Bless!
