Andy Murray has just won the 2013 Mens singles title at Wimbledon Tennis. The first Briton to do so since Fred Perry in 1936! Woo hoo, get that beer out! :-))

I would be pretty sure that he will be mentioned in the next New Years Honours list. Maybe not a Sir, but an OBE or MBE most likely. He did well, he deserved the win, and we are all very pleased.

Well Wiggins got one, but I suspect you are right.

My mother would probably be excited about this if she were still around.

(I just realized, she passed two years ago today.)

He did an excellent job, and that last set was terrific - both players brought up really excellent tennis ...


It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues
