No idea about why the Queen decided for the visit this year. But I know for sure that I haven't drunk any alcohol and I've never done any drugs.
What a narrow miss for Jarkko.

Good morning, everyone!

I've been watching the recaps and remarks about The Match. They interviewed John's mother and she is a lovely woman. She kept saying she was in awe of both players. They asked what she was most proud of about her son. She thought a moment and said that it was the way he comports himself. She added, "He's not perfect, " but thought overall he did well. She had no idea how the match will turn out because she has no idea how the players prepare. They asked if she noticed a difference in John toward the end of the match. She said that what she noticed was him becoming even more determined.

Mary, who bugs me, did say something good about what it must be like to play Mahut. His hair stands up. He grins from ear to ear. He exudes energy. It's such a contract of individuals. Mrs. Isner said that people sometimes misjudge John because of his outward demeanor, but he's been determined all his life. When he was 3 he broke his femur and had to be in a full body cast and in a wheelchair. She took him out to the driveway and he shot baskets over and over and over. She retrieved the ball and gave it to him. He didn't make many baskets, but just kept doing it.

I guess it was mainly to talk about the junior tennis initiative, to show her the changes to the grounds over the years.

Last time she was here, it was the old court 1, centre court was unchanged with no roof, the old court 2, no Henman Hill, no Millennium building, so...

Yeah. Me either.

Murray's bow looked a bit snarky to me, but maybe Murray just looks snarky even when he isn't. (or looks that way to me.

Mikey! Your boy is right behind HRM.

Isner looks tired but Mahut still looks fresh.
Exactly. People were saying Isner looked like he was on auto-pilot; I would think that's partly due to mental exhaustion.

First, I hope your flight is on its way now and that the three of you have a good time this weekend.

Second, . Don't send them to my continent.

I live in a fairly strong unionized city and I don't think all of France's strikes would go over well here. As I said before, I can't imagine France's widespread strikes taking place here.

I have no problem with remaining part of the Commonwealth, and I'd say that's true of the majority of Canadians, but I'd like the Governor-General and all of her nominal powers gone, and all the nominal powers of the Queen gone too.

So this MTFer Genius died? That's terrible! How was the information confirmed?

Oh and as there was already talk about the Queen coming last year should Murray make it to the final she decided to come this year after all.

Yes I really do.

Because I think what the Queen represents is continuity in a world that has changed out of all recognition since 1952 - it's sort of awesome to think that she had audiences with Churchill as her first Prime Minister - I think that sense of stability and stoic adaptation to changing times is one of the reasons that she is held in great affection in the country at large and I think Charles will really struggle to find anything similar - a lot of people think he's a bit of a prat anyway and I'm not sure that's likely to change much.

It also gives to feeling of belonging, Eastern-European are a different breed, head of states that change every 5 years are really not my cup of tea. And no, that doesn't mean I'd like a dictatorship, we had that, thank you very much...
And I also like the glam aspect of it, I'm not gonna lie ....
