Well it started yesterday, and Federer won, but today see's the start for Andy Murray and Anne Keothavong... Start of our dissapointment I think.

Most papers have Nadal as favourite, but does anyone actually think he can beat Federer???

I really couldn't give a fuck. All Wimbledon does is fuck up the TV schedule.

Tennis is just one of those sports that is far better played than watched on the box.

That said, I'd rather have Tennis on TV 24/7 than the fucking Olympics.

conker

The Olympics are an even bigger dissapointment than the English National Team, and they just bore the shit outta me...

Oh wait, here's a fast runner, he's ran past one man, he's won... BONER!!!!!!

Why oh why has Wimbledon been mentioned on here? It's pap. Tennis in general that is. Played by those much better off that many of the idiots queueing to get in, who in reality get excited about tennis once a year when Wimbledon is about to start.
What a waste of time.

And as for the Olympics, thank goodness that is every 4 years, but even that is too regular.

Saying that Frank, the pain and anguish England put us through, the World Cup, Euro's, Ashes and anything else we play against another country is too regular

concurrage.
one man and his dog is far more compelling viewing than either tennis or the olympics.

Miggs, you don't mind because your country actually wins something at them. We win cock all. 2012 is gonna be hilarious, watching us hold the olympics and win fuck all at them

ESM is into that. He had a problem last time around as his Rottweiler didn't exactly round the sheep up.

The Olympics have their place as a grand spectacle. They've lost a lot of what they used to stand for but even so, it's a nice distraction from the usual shit on tv like the 'I wanna be a celeb please I'd do anything including make myself out to be a psycho,' programs. Spending half your life striving to be at the top of your sport (no matter how obscure the sport is) is a damn site more worthy than becoming a Big Brother contestant.

Can't really be doing with Wimbledon but again, it's comparative.

They are only good at swimming. But so would we be, if you had crocs and sharks chasing your arse.

But why oh why are martial arts, football, baseball and basketball Olympic sports? What nonsense.
Oh yeah, as just mentioned, I forgot tennis too.
