It's the only time when I watch TV for longer than a couple of hours on the trot GB, I just hope the weather is kind :-)

I do love the tennis very much....I enjoyed Queens...

I have always wanted to go to Wimbledon...even if it was the outside courts.

One of the reasons I like tennis so much, is it's a game that has manners, I know there are times when players chuck there dummies, but overall they respect each other, I like good manners. I also never mind who wins, so there's none of that gut wrenching feeling, like I get when Arsenal play :-D

I'll phone Cliff to see if he can get you a couple of tickets Mersey :-D

I didn't Joy, I was out with my Granddaughters, but I did her about it.

I also heard that Andy Murray gave his £75,000 winnings to charity, I'm liking him more as he gets older. Hope he gets the chance of winning Wimbledon before too long :-D

I can't wait everything stops for Wimbledon.

Mersey you only need tickets for center court and court 1 everything else is free once you have paid to get in, you can even watch the players on the practice courts.

About 4/5o'clock any unused/claimed tickets are sold of, I only had to pay £5 to watch the women's finals a couple of years ago :-D

Wow Lesley that must have been the best bargain you've ever had, lucky you.:-D

Everything takes the back seat when it's Wimbledon fortnight, although to be honest, I pretty much please myself to what I do all the time, life is for living to the full isn't it :-D
