And a FB friend in hospital said it was the nurses' 7th shift too!!

Virginia Wade's win was significant in that it was Silver Jubilee year. This year is the anniversary of the coronation!!

Some great tennis. Andy Murray gets stronger every time I see him play. He made Novak look wimpy, pounding ball after ball at him.

The range of shots were fantastic: powered baseline shots to each side; looping shots bouncing high and deep; sliced, also deep; amazingly fine drop shots; topspin lobs...sometimes all in one rally!

To me, the finest display of racquet skill was when Djokovic returned a powerful dipping cross-court with a soft drop shot. Just exquisite the way he absorbed the power and gently layed the ball at the base of the net.
