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 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
