I would just like to offer patriotic good wishes to Andy Murray on his quest for Olympic gold against a Swiss has been player called Fedarsole. Who's with me? ;-)

Why the hate against arguably the best tennis player ever (top 5 at absolute worst) and by all accounts a good person? Are you trolling about tennis now? Whoever you are you suck at golf, being a tennis fan,  and could you please just go away.

You really are a miserable POS, aren't you?

Well done Murray!

He may be a Scot, but 1) he didn't play in a kilt and 2) as I understand it he's from Oxford.  Need I say more ....

I would only have taken 50:1 odds.  Unbelievable except that he's been showing flashes of brilliance and toughness lately.  Maybe 50:1 was too long .....

Patrick the OP is probably of Irish ancestry so you must forgive.  When was the last time an Irishman won anything important in tennis?

(I'm mostly a Paddy myself, yet I celebrate the Scottish victory.  We're all Celts anyway).

He was a pupil at the school during the Dublane disaster and he was born and brought up there. I'm Scottish and my father is Scottish but apart from that I'm as Irish as Shamrock. I'm also a celt and a Celtic Fan. Andy Murray is definitely not a Celtic fan.:-D

Yes I read that about his being from Dunblane and how that affected him personally.

I'm so used to Brits not having the toughness to make it at the highest level at Wimbledon (following for 40 years or so) that it's hard to believe that one of them can hang tough against as great a player as Federer.  Mind you Federer made far too many unforced errors towards the end of the match, which is most unlike him of course.

If you'd been a Padraig I'd have had a better idea ......

    • Day 586 - August 5, 2021 Hit about 40 balls outside, really proud of how slow and exaggerated I made things feel. This followed about 15 balls off a mat, the last five or six of which were also good. The first nine or so were to see where things were and how the body was moving and how everything felt today. 40 balls took just over an hour.
    • I only asked about age not height.  Age is what we have to look out for because it creeps up I would add some mobility exercises in as you go along. As I look at peoples workouts, I rarely see them incorporating mobility exercises into their routines. Weight lifters   especially do add muscle, but at the same time are tightening that muscle, by creating tension. The muscle needs to be strong but flexible.
    • Thanks a lot I will check that 30 day plan out looks pretty decent.
