LK is hoping for a 4pm finish, though he has been shafted by his boss for a 2pm supplier meeting. I might have to try and take the TV into our meeting room OK

Good luck Legend, hope you get to see the matches. I think both are real mouth watering matchups. I just hope everyone gives a show.

I should've timed my annual leave much better.

Both matches promise to be corkers.

I still fancy whoever wins the Fed/Djok semi is the champion in waiting.

Oh crap I realised I didn't set the the Sky +. Fudge it!!! mad

I don't. Even when I went to the Wimbledon official page I get a delightful warning that I have been reported to the IT department for using such a corrupt website. Laugh

Well there is that i suppose- doesn't quite make up for having Friday off as a matter of course!

Anyway, Murray's going to win it easy, I wouldn't worry!

Yeh, it is every other Friday but it is a pretty sweet deal.

I always fear the worst when it comes to Murray matches, especially when everyone seems so confident he is going to win, I just hope for his sake he does because just getting to the final will put some of the Wimbledon pressure to bed.

Literally counting the minutes down. Cannot remember for the life of me a day of matches that has a big match feel for it. I think because there is so much on the line and the rewards from the matches seem so separate of the tournament.

British finalist? A new record for Federer? Djokovic aiming to retain his title? Tsonga aiming to make another Slam final?

The meeting today is about Insulin Pumps. It is a massive bumhole of a contract because the funding mechanisms in place make it such a complex and frustrating contract to construct.

Furthermore I cannot find a current tennis player who has diabetes so I could swerve them to maybe providing some tennis action Very Happy

Why do the commentators insist on pretending that Federer is the same federer of prime? They make it out as if the reason he loses more today is because all the players have surpassed his greatness in the glory years when that's Love sacks. They never mention he is almost 31... it is just "Djokovic has taken it to a whole new level" Get real.

Federer has more talent than Djok ever will.

I predict that Djokovic to win in 4 sets. And Tsonga to win in 5 sets later.

Federer for me is the best to play the game ever so no one has the talent he does. He is past his prime, as shown by the fact that he has lost so many sets to the likes of Malisse and Bennetaeu this year

It is a forum, get used to free speech. And what I said is correct. It is annoying to watch winners getting returned like clay. It isn't a snide comment to make technical comments on the GAME. Unlike you with your constant badgering of PEOPLE.
