Tag Archives: Andy Murray


I love Wimbledon. I look forward to it every year. I consider it a legitimate response to the question,

“What are you doing July 4th weekend?”

But this?



Tennis is hard work

Being a sports fan can sometimes feel like a full-time job.

Today it really was.

I starting watching the Wimbledon men’s semifinals at 8 o’clock this morning, and finished at just shy of 5 o’clock this afternoon.

The Novak Djokovic/Juan Martin Del Potro five-set match went down in the record books as the longest Wimbledon semifinal in history.  And Andy Murray’s win over Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz took four sets, including a 20-minute stop to put the roof up and turn the lights on Centre Court for the night match.

where do I punch my time card?






Note — this is not my dog, but damn he’s cute!


Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer?

As the US Open Tennis Tournament begins at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing tomorrow — and Rafa Nadal is out due to injury — the rivalry is back in the forefront.

Not to discredit Andy Murray’s gold medal at the Summer Olympics…but still —

Novak or Roger?

This video answers that question for me.

Who can be one of the greatest tennis players of all time and still have fun?  Put on a good show for the kids assembled at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day?  Not take himself — or his celebrity — too seriously?

I’d support that guy any day.

Breakfast at Wimbledon

Guess which Olympic sport I’m watching this morning?

Murray vs. Federer, for the gold medal, in a Wimbledon final rematch — it will be EPIC!

(Now, sit down everyone…and put down your balls.)
