I absolutely love the tennis and am sad Wimbledon is over. Also sad that Andy Murray lost but it was a great run this year and we mustn't forget the fantastic men's doubles final on Saturday evening. Congrats to Jonny Marray!


Exactly Gekko - got back Saturday, early evening, after a lovely day and the doubles were on and a great fight back to two sets all! All to play for and a magnificient win by a pair of very modest young men to set us up for Sunday's finale. Andy Murray started well and should have had Roger in the 2nd set; if so it would have been over in three........ sniff.

The end of Wimbledon always brings on the tears - never fails. Still there are always many 'Reasons to be Cheerful'.............. glass half full and all that - stiff upper lip. ;)

Tears? Golf bores me to them.

The last World Service transmission from Bush House today - that made me tearful, but then afterwards a gentleman in full kilt played Lilli Bulero (the World Service 'theme tune') on bagpipes outside the main reception, and then I stopped being just tearful and started quite frankly bawling like a kid. A very sad day!

Now it's a general thread, has anyone mentioned peeling onions?
opposed to taking terrapins.

A little boy of about five fell down the steps on the Number 3 bus last week, and it made me cry, and I was upset all the next day.

don't suppose anyone has, Andreas, but this thread can be anything you want it to be. Of course.

Yes indeedy. After living in the UK for a while, I've been surprised at how it seems people here are unaware of the remarkable 'soft power' diplomatic effect of the BBC World Service and the BBC generally. My feeling is it would pay back hugely to INCREASE the support for, and reach of, the BBC. Instead the discussion gravitates towards cutting it. That strikes me as killing a goose that lays golden eggs.

Well there we go, a sad end to the thread. Which was about Wimbledon, for those who appreciate it. Anyhow, Andy Murray will definitely be back!


He'll be back AWS but a week later in 2015! (sob) The only consolation is that the end of summer will be delayed by one week. :)

I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.

The radiator in the toilet out of action and it is -3°C at 3:00a.m. Brings tears to the eyes!
