    Wimbledon's started? I thought that usually happened in June.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    England's troubles will increase until the bishops open Joanna Southcott's box.
    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    We're at the end of the first week.

    Well done Heather, what a great match to watch, just a shame Serena finally got through in the end.

    First women's match I have bothered to watch in ages, the William's had managed to make women's tennis boring and predictable. Let's hope that's all changed for the better from now.

    That's very odd. Usually there's news reports about it. Maybe Wimbledon's no longer fashionable enough to be reported.

    Well BBC1 and 2 are both almost exclusively Wimbledon.

    It was a great match. I sat and watched it all. After her two early service breaks in the third set Watson should have won it but you have to hand it to Serena Wiliiams. She wasnt going to let that go.

    I only saw the last set, unfortunately. It was a fire-cracker! Serina looked dog-tired at the end, I thought. Heather Watson is a work in progress, but is now a "handful" for even the best in the game, and has bags of "grow-room". Augers well for British ladies tennis!

    He doesn't own a telly to know that the BBC is showing it on two channels each afternoon.

    I didn't see all the match, came upon it when they were one set all and Watson was out in front. I was about to head out for bits from the shop but that trip got delayed until tomorrow once I realised what a good match it was

    I did the same yesterday, caught the tale end of the match that my favourite player ever, Nadal, went out on! Very frustrating.

    There have been news articles, think the one I saw had something to do with wrong colour underwear.

    Nadal may be out, but Muzza's still there. I think Dustin Brown played pretty well, if a little wild at times. Entertaining, though.

    End of the "First Week"? I thought it was only supposed to be 1 week - hence "Wimbledon Week".
