I'm sick of the weather. This morning, when I wanted to go out, it rained. This evening, when I wanted to watch the tennis, it was nice here but rained in London :banghead: .

Yeah, it's not rained here today (!!) but it's overcast and cold. It's supposed to be summer... :roll:

Yey Andy! :trumpet:

He is looking in very good form before Wimbledon...I have my fingers crossed.

I can kind of live with the potential last 16 draw, but not the potential QF arrangements, and things are looking potentially nasty even before then :( .

Bit nasty for Nadal really Alison but on the plus side he is defeding relatively few points so he should bounce back up the rankings after Wimbledon.

I am afraid I don't see him beating Murray (or Ferrer even) in grass.

Murray has an ok draw, won't face Djoko until the final. Tsonga is still recovering from injury and again, I don't think either Nadal or Ferrer pose.too much of a threat on grass.

All the other GB men have harsh draws in R1 but the women (bar Konta who has Sharapova!) have lesser known opponents so hopefully 1 or 2 will get through a few rounds.

And Laura is back! :D

I've picked 9lbs of strawberries today, so am all set :lol: .

Nadal's draw a little easier at least - but yes, poor Ferrer.

I do hope they're Scottish strawberries! :wink:

Lancashire/Cheshire border English strawberries, picked by my own mucky pawsfair hands :D .

The forecast's looking good for the first three days, then maybe some showers in Thursday.

Nadal on first with Andy on a clocking off time...that's what I like! :D

Great win for Liam Broady in a 5-setter and Heather is at one set all (stopped due to bad light)

The scheduling is so predictable that I can usually write the order of play before it's released!

Well done, Liam Broady. It was also good to hear him say in an interview that Andy Murrary was so supportive of other British players.

Nice start. Next up, Dustin Brown ... trying hard to forget that match in Halle last year. & the first two matches on Centre Court both finished so quickly that Andy's match is starting way before the BBC wanted it to!

Yes, I follow Andy on facebook and he/his team do post when good things happen to the younger players e.g. Kyle Edmund winning his match at the French, James Ward's good performance at the Davis Cup etc.

Genie is now 12 losses from 14 matches...

Halep out of the women's as well, and Wozniacki struggling a bit in the 1st set - a break down.

The women's seeds don't seem to be doing very well this year. Nice to see Heather Watson through.

I wish you hadn't quoted me, tartan-belle, because I spotted that I spelt Andy's surname wrong and should have spotted it before my original post! :lol: :roll:

I haven't watched any of it: I'm sticking with the live play on the red button!
