If he is winning tennis tournaments, on top of his Villa commitments, then kudos.

Edmund 5-7, 6-7 Pouilee
Edmund was 5-2 up in the tiebreak and somehow contrived to lose it. Long way back for Kyle now.

Nasty, there can't be many people, who have lived up to their name, as much as he has done.

Tuned in to ITV's French Open coverage yesterday just in time for John Inverdale's interview with Bettany Mattek Sands (?) about her tattoos and flashy outfits. Needless to say that didn't stay on for very long.

It's been a great year if you like finding out that former tennis legends are massive ******.

Fair play to Navratilova for speaking out so directly. I think it is perfectly legitimate to disregard a person's sporting ability because they are unpleasant human beings. They made a five part documentary about OJ on the very subject.

Interesting comparison btw the QF draws.

For the men, 7 of the top 8 seeds made it to the QF with only Raonic (5) missing.

For the ladies, only 2 of the top 8 seeds are through with possibly a third if Pliskova wins.

It's not just the homophobia, either. The evil woman said that "South Africa deal with their racial issues properly" during Apartheid.

Wawrinka has just beaten Murray in a superb 5 set match. Wawrinka deserved to win, but clay is probably Murray's least favourite surface, so it was a great effort to get to the semis.

 Wawrinka has won more majors in his 30s than his 20s. I think Murray,now just turned 30, who won 3 majors in his 20s, will also go onto win more grand slams in his 30s, starting with Wimbledon next month.

Just turned the tele on to see Murray has lost in 2 sets to some unknown Aussie. Not looking great for Wimbledon.
