Tom, I think it's best to keep talking to her as a brother to a sister and don't criticise her new opinions and views. Just be a good brother and friend to her and perhaps she'll understand that her world does not need to be narrowed to the Jehova Witness environment.

Whatever you do, don't push her on her views about evolution theory and such, don't confront her because you won't get through anyway and it'll only widen the gap between you.

When my brother introduced his wife-to-be to us, she was still able to talk to us normally and she was very friendly and communicative. She had been a Jehova Witness for many years by then.
She changed groups when they moved and this new group has her on a very tight leash. Just hope that your sister has a good Jehova witness group.

Speaking of tennis for a moment, I came to work half an hour earlier than usually to be able to go home earlier and catch more of Gulbis's match against Tsonga. He's never beat Tsonga before but I hope he may do it this time. Maybe it's just wishful thinking but Ernests hasn't got to the third round of a Grand Slam in years, I really want him to win today

Thanks Hilde! Very good input, much appreciated!

I will approach it like you suggest.

I'm thinking about buying the new iphone once it comes out. until now I managed to spend virtually no money on phones by "inheriting" the old phones of my periphery.

What do you mean by periphery? That so far you got someone else's old phones?

I'm not buying a new one until they've got better/longer lasting batteries.

Yeah i take the old phones of my friend or family when they buy a new one

But the batteries are even more shitty when the phones are a couple years old

Darcis is unsure that he's going to be able to play his R2 match due to a shoulder injury. Apparently, after his R1 match, he couldn't really move his shoulder much.

I read it's because he fell down towards the end of the Nadal match. Really unfortunate

that is a classic. underdog gives everything to defeat top player only to be a standing dead in the next round

Can't they replace him with Rafa and say it was a bad dream, the result got weirdly reversed or smth? I'm sure Rafiangel would sacrifice a few days of his vacation till the qf vs Federina which he'd gladly lose.

Hewitt lost to Brown (AJ must be creaming himself) and Tsonga retired.
How's Stakhovsky doing so well against Federina? This year's Wimbledon is weird.

Mother of God, Tom!!! Stakho took the 3rd set meanwhile?!?!
The world has definitely gone crazy.
Or Fedal planning their secret holidays together without Wawas and Picos?
