First day of Queens’ yesterday. Andrew Castle still lazy and annoying. John Lloyd still moaning. Peter Fleming looking a bit past his sell by date. BBC needs a proper clean out of their tennis coverage, but we are where we are.
Sir Andrew Barron Murray OBE is slated to take the court today against Benoit Paire, so that’ll be the story of the day. Here’s hoping he doesn’t crock himself and put himself out of Wimbledon.
Speaking of which, “The Championships” will begin on 28th June. No queueing, 50% ground capacity with full attendances on the final weekend. Ticketing supposedly online at an unspecified date soon. Presumably expect carnage and disappointment in the race for tickets.
So who’s going to win? I dunno, Djokovic probably don’t you think? And as for the women’s draw you might as well pull a crystal ball out or throw a dart at the draw.
Still, grassy tennis again after two years.
