    • Andy Murray wins Wimbledon 2013, becoming first British man to hold the title since 1936

      linda, are you happy? I know it's not Nadal, but he beat Djokovic AND he's Scottish!

      • I kept thinking about linda too, especially during that epic last set.

        This might well be a super good week for GB! Princess Alexandra Millicentia Victoria Elizabeth Charlotte Moxie Crimefighter Pippa might be born in the next couple of days!

        (shut up, royal watching is a sport, too)

          • Nope, I'm not a betting woman.

            It'll most likely be something super dull, though, and we will collectively yawn and say, 'That's all you got, limeys?'

            Speaking of sports, I *need* the Olympics to come back pronto. It's like a physical ache whenever we have years without one.

            • I was thrilled!

              Andy is my second favourite and I've been desperate for him to wim Wimbledon for years. My favourite umpire also got a slam final for the first time, so it was a good day for me.

              The final was watched by a peak TV audience of 17.3 million which is amazing considering yesterday was the hottest day for about 10 years in the UK. The beeb also report around 8 million people watched via the BBC website. God knows how many watched in pubs etc, so I'd say pretty much the whole country watched.

              Think he'll get knighted in the New Years honours list. Hope he can finish the year at #1 (have no faith in Rafa's knees)

              • A little late here, but that was a terrific match. That last game was tense. Mr. Q and I were cheering Andy on. We don't have TV so we had Mr. Q's dad in Scotland prop up his iPad in front of their tele and then Facetime us. It worked like a charm! F U cable company! Did you notice how many times the BBC showed Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler in the audience? It was silly. Well done Andy..I hope he's less of a grump now.

                • Posting this heart warming tale about how sweet Roger Federer was to a teen cancer survivor simply to annoy linda: http://www.buzzfeed.com/tasneemnashr...p-why-roger-f?

                  He's so dreamy. *swoon*

                  • Yes, how amazing that he was nice to a teenage cancer survivor and that it was all caught on film by ESPN! I've don't think I've ever read anything so inspiring.

                    Thank you, ophy. And thank you Roger.

                    • AND HAS NADAL CURED ANYONE'S CANCER LATELY, HMMMMM?

                      Eh, who am I kidding. I actually like Nadal and that's my problem. I have zero animosity against Djokovic, Nadal *or* Federer. I even like Murray a whole bunch. I never know who to root for in the high stakes matches, because I like all of them.

                      Unless they are playing against either Juan Martin del Potro or John Isner, in which case the answer is easy.

                      • Searching through AO3 I've found a few Federer/Nadal fics a couple of years ago. And I read them.

                              • I swear, you can show me a dozen YT vids of soldiers reuniting with their families and throw in some cancerporn and my eyes will probs stay dry 'cause I'm not really a crier. But show me one sports story of teammates broing down and I am a MESS. For the record, I don't even care about the Yankees 'cause fuck Alex Rodriguez and baseball bores me. But I am a MESS.
