all the sevens?

murray wimbledon
Back from a sizzling hot cycle ride at about 2:15pm, just as the first ball of the Wimbledon men's final was being played.

I'd noticed the streets had cleared and guessed that most people were in combinations of barbecues and watching the tennis.

I was pretty -er- warm from the cycling and should have headed straight to the shower, but instead found myself joining the spirit of the exciting tennis final. The changing fortunes of the players were matched by remarkable switches in the pundits' commentary.

A great win for Andy Murray and 77 years since a Brit wins the mens' Wimbledon final on today : 7/7.

Curiously, I think Virginia Wade won the women's final in... '77.

I am thrilled for you and your fellow countrymen---This Is FANTASTIC!
77 years?? Thar is a L-O-N-G time....Mr.Murray is the Hero of the Decade--at the very least!

Apparently Andy Murray won the US Open on 9/11 and Wimbledon on 7/7!

Naomi Yes, slightly embarrassing that one of the most famous tennis tournaments is run from the UK but that Brits hardly ever win it.

Nikki-ann Oooh. Spooky.
