For DH's 70th I have treated us to the Finals day at the tennis at Stoke Park in Berkshire. It's just a small event BUT with major tennis players. Novak D appears there each year but the icing on the cake for me is that Rafa Nadal is appearing. smile I don't know which day Rafa is on and I am keeping everything crossed that it is Saturday.

Oh I do love the tennis. [tennis racquet]

My son recorded it to watch later, but they changed the channel! He now has lots of stuff he did not want to watch.

Not long now- Andy is having a couple of days off and then back to training. He is in fine form and with luck will repeat the success of 2013.

Yay! Job done Murray smile
When do we get our tennis ball emoticons please?

Nicely done, Andy Murray. Wimbledon is going to be spectacular with this sort of play.

Rubylady if they're knocking a tennis ball up and down a grass court, I'll watch anyone grin

Wheniam64 how sad Rafa knocked out in first round, he is my ultimate favourite sportsman. I don't know who I will support now, I suppose it has to be Andy.

Oh no, I missed it, my freeview box was acting up, until I discovered the scart lead had come loose! Have to wait to see him play at Wimbers now. But I will watch Queens from now on. The French was a good one this year. Do you watch the men most or the women?

Should have kept my mouth shut - Rafa lost sad Watching Andy Murray afterwards highlighted just how in shape Murray is, in comparison - a powerhouse.

All I need is the time to have a look!

whitewave Tue 16-Jun-15 15:55:16

Think I will have a look

Tennis heaven. That's an oxymoron as far as I'm concerned grin
Glad you and lots of others are enjoying it when

Lovely to see Rafael Nadal on court this afternoon. He gets more likeable every time I see him. Up against Alexandr Dolgopolov today - tennis heaven smile
