Not joking, 76 years to be exact. No, not since I last had sex, thats only about 12 years, darlings lol! No, what I’m referring to is a Brit winning a Grand Slam Tennis Tournament, what until yesterday, or today our time, hadnt occurred since before WW2, when Fred Perry won his last title. Well the wait is now over, thanks to Andy Murray. Took longer than expected, and not just because the match was a day late due to the weather.
When I went to bed last night, Murray had won the 1st set (after nearly 90 minutes), and was comfortably up in the 2nd, I think it was 5-2? So when I got up this morning, and saw he’d won, I just assumed it was comfortable, until I read the details at least. 5 sets, nearly 5 hours, but he got there in the end! In theory, that takes a weight off his shoulders, but I suspect some will now just expect more of the same lol!
The music tonight, rather apt, if not in the slightest about tennis,
One sad fact, on the anniversary of that awful day. I watched the 6.00 news on BBC tonight, not one mention of what happened 11 years ago today. I didnt expect it to be main news, but did expect it to be mentioned. Simple error, or deliberate chouce, who knows, but I was saddened by the miss, I must say
