A Brit? Inconceivable!

 

Congratulations to Andy Murray and The Empire.

As an Englishman I should like to say "F*** Wimbledon"

 

Utter waste of time and energy.

I'm happy that Fred Perry's ghost can now rest in peace, but I'm sorry that **** Murray got the honor :p

 

Highlight of the match: Gerard Butler's scottish ecstasy :D

When was the last time the Brits won in one of the sports they invented? 1966? :huh:

 

Congratulations to Mr. Murray :)

Murray's been fairly successful, taking the US Open and Olympics last year. The last time a Brit won in Wimbledon was in 1936, though. :p

 

Cricket and Rugby... I couldn't say. I know they've won gold in Ice Hockey in Olympics unlike, say, Finland. :p

To clarify I don't doubt the time and energy Mr Murray has dedicated to winning.

 

Quite the reverse.

I apologise in advance for being a debbie downer, but it's amazing what "medical help" can accomplish these days. Tennis isn't 'my' sport, but there's a lot of overlap with cycling's problems, which I follow closely. THASP is a websiteI would consider essential reading for anyone with more than a passing interest in tennis and its endemic problems.

 

 

 

(I'm not just pointing at the victor, if that's how it reads, the problem is magnitudes greater.)

I fully expect that they erect a monument in Dunblane bigger than the Livingstone monument in Edinburgh in order to celebrate this victory.

To be fair, next British woman to win Wimbledon will likely be in 2077.


The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

I've realised wimbledon doesn't use world rankings to seed players as sharapova is 24th and hewitt is seeded as well. Is there a reason for this?

Wild guess: snobbery.

They used grass court performance weighed seeding.
