    Channel Islander I think. Certainly got a mature head on her young shoulders.
    She says her prematch ritual is to have 'scrambled eggs and smoked salmon'. She must stink of fish.

    Murray wins 6-1 6-1 6-3 with unbelievable ease, He really does have every shot in the locker..He hasn't won a major as he is in the best ever era of mens tennis.FACT...Henman on the other hand was just a typical English bottler, That's also a fact.
    I thought better of you than that Andy.

    It's a very easy, almost fashionable thing to say that Henman was just a pansy bottler, but he was up against Sampras and Agassi who, if memory serves, weren't too bad. He got to 4 or 5 Wimbeldon semi-finals, won Masters Series tournaments and got to number 4 (I think??) in the world and for a player whose 1st choice style of game was becoming harder and harder as Wimbledon became (comparatively) slower and balls bounced higher, that's far from shabby.

    Granted, even at his peak, he's not close to the player that Murray is now, but it's plainly wrong to say he was "an English bottler".

    Lol Karlovic isn't actually an athelete is he???

    He looks like a tree that grew legs and arms. It's like a normal person standing on the roof of a car to serve!!

    Must admit your spot on Lyon...I got sucked into tit for tat with Scouse.


    Ill be man enough to admit Henman was anything but an 'English bottler' But a very good bloody serve and vollyer


    Great performance from Andy today, To play a player that really only has a bullet 1st serve and not alot else was a good win..Murray really does have every single shot in the game.A joy to watch.

    Hold on, Rafa is a break down in the 5th against some Rosol lad from the Czech Republic. This would be one of the biggest upsets I can remember in SW19

    Rosol playing like a man possessed, just needs to hold his serve.

    He's absolutely battering Nadal. Not seen anything like this against any of the top 3 in years.

    Totally forgot Nadal was playing tonight, just switched it over and I'm gobsmacked. Great news for Murray if he goes out though.

    Caught the end of it after the football. Never heard of Rosol, ranked 100 in the world. Well done to him!

    All done and dusted. Unbelievable nerve to just keep on going for every shot right to the end. Fantastic. Nadal out.

    If there's 99 better tennis players in the world than Rosol, then I'm a Jambo.

    Punt him to one of the outside courts on a breezy day, and he'll be all over the place.

    He's 27 as well, not just a young lad!! Got to 65 in the world last year, never reached a major between 2007 and 2010. And he looked like a top 3 player at times tonight. His serving was outstanding, and he had nerves of steel in his last 3 service games

    Granted, even at his peak, he's not close to the player that Murray is now, but it's plainly wrong to say he was "an English bottler".
    Regardless of nationality, he is a bottler.

    He somehow managed to reach 4 in the world, amassing a mere 11 titles in 6 years in such glamorous tournaments in Brighton and Uzbekistan.

    Favourable draws and seedlings allowed him 4 semi finals at wimbers, 2 of which he bottled. Only reached 2 other semis and Apart from wimbers, never reached a grand slam QF in 50 odd attempts.

    Whilst Agassi and Sampras were around, Sampras was at the twilight of his career. The standard of men's tennis is not a patch on what it is now.

    He only won one masters event.

    His serve and volley tactics wouldn't stand up in tennis today and though it was great having 'Tiger Tim' to cheer on (or Greg 'I won more titles, reach more grand slam finals and achieve a similar ranking' Rusedski), he was pretty pants.

    Murray is a brilliant tennis player, no doubt, and has proved that he is capable of winning against the best. It's just unfortunate he is playing against 3 of the greatest players in history. Murray will win a grand slam, now that rafa is out, is this his moment??....



    him being a hibby and a scot is just a bonus
