Great final match yesterday and a pretty good grand prix also - always like it when Mark Webber gets a win.

Feds played great after Murray starting off battering groundstrokes all over the place at the start. I think Sue Barker showed terrible interview skills at the end though. First words to the winner are a question about Murray. Feds has just won Wimbledon for the 7th time and you can't even start off with a congratulations!? Yes, Murray had a difficult post match interview and is British but still, bad form I thought.

Needs to be said I suppose. Well done Murray! Even if I was cheering for Verdasco in the quarters! :lol:

And didn't realise the last post in this thread was from the same time last year! As it happens, missed the end of the match so haven't seen or heard this year's post match interviews - presuming super gushing from Sue Barker though!

That was quite a game particularly the last one which felt like a dodgy film script with Murray going to 40-0 then losing all those points to go to Deuce then kept losing the advantage...argh!

Used correctly terrain is a second weapon in your arsenal, equal to your Titan itself. Make the battlefield work for you, or you will find it working for your opponent.

Woohoo! Snooker is exciting isn't it!? Go Bingham!!! Great final and last few frames. Haven't watched much of this year's tournament but what a great end. The last frame hasn't even been completed yet. Well done, mister!

After beating liverpool at the weekend, it all came crashing down tonight when Luke Shaw fractured his leg in 2 places. I urge you not to look for the video. Once seen, cannot be unseen..

I've read that you see his ankle at 45 or 90 degrees to his leg. I don't want to see it...

Nope. I've rolled my ankles enough times and know how painful those are. What he has - nope. *shudders*

So England are out. Chelsea lose, Man U lose, Arsenal win, Spurs draw and Liverpool and Sunderland need new managers! Something also happened in the NFL game at Wembley.

So now we have Jurgen Klopp installed. Hopefully we now have a manager that puts players in the correct positions and actually has a tactics to win.
