wimbledon and overly priced strawberries part II

OK guys, here it is, i've started it a little early as usual, but thats because im working, then straight off to eastbourne, where i'll be uploading and trying to avoid getting crapped on by the huge killer seagulls.
Then its windy eastbourne, and killer gulls and off to wimbledon where that 6 hr bloody queue will cause me to get tourettes. (sweary reports might be frequent). From here, I will again be posting photos, mainly of umbrellas and moaning about how shite the weather is
You queue at wimbledon every year, you have this right. You live in england, you also have the right. Please feel free to add captions like last year, captions make them that much more special.
My seats for eastbourne are really pants, they are row 'z', obv i'll be seat spotting thru the change of ends and will just move, if anyone has a problem with that i'll put on my swedish accent and claim i don't understand, which seemed to work nicely at Roland Garros and USO! Who says you need tickets for the centre court matches


yeah whatever

Re: wimbledon and overly priced strawberries part II

draw could be better Must start packing soon, eastbourne, then wimby, no time to get home betwenn them, im not exactly close to either, 300+ mile drive tomorrow, with no bloody ipod, as i STUPIDLY shoved it in the washing machine last night, tried in hope to switch it on today, what a shock, it did not. Thats the 2nd bloody one ive knackered now, the first one died of alcohol poisoning.

yeah whatever

Re: wimbledon and overly priced strawberries part II

It's not that bad is it, she should be Katie OBrien for a shot at Mauresmo or Cornet...

Re: wimbledon and overly priced strawberries part II

OMG!

Can i just shout: MOVE YOUR FEET, PLLLLLLEEEAAASSSEEEEEEE

Crowd support very much in favour of o'brien, couldnt do much about that. Sams match must have been the only sunny hour of the day, gotta be thankful for that.

First serve was more than a little off, second serve was mainly the kicker, backhand sucked big style today, conditions were nice, and not windy. Those lowish balls that need smacking but also lifting over the net, they were a real concern today, not one of them cleared the net as a return.

MOVE YOUR FEET

First set.....up 2-0, o'b broke back to 3-2 up, few more dble faults, somehow got it back to 6-4. Second set up 5-1, got broken 5-3

Needs to improve (sorry)

Mauresmo struggled against cornet, dodgy serving from her too

I presume casey lost her match, she was knocking back some redbulls, but that didn't seem to help, crap and windy for that match forced me to go back to hotel and get more clothes

i have pictures, but my battery is running low and im unsure they will upload before it dies

yeah whatever
