Games ll - 11

I have watched some fantastic tennis from Wimbledon today..every year we Brits mourn the ever repetitive failure of our Tim to progress further..but I didn't miss him once I saw the spectacle that is Novak Djokovic..Richard Gasquet..Marion Bartoli..Venus Wiliams and (of course) Roger Federer..Some stunning matches. Special note regarding Djokovic who has battled on consecutive days two matches each over 4 hours in length..today's quarter final vs Marcos Baghdatis may rank as one of the greatest ever...still, no one can live up to my all time favourite player Chris Evert!!I like her so much..here's a picture:



Work progresses slowly on the picture, but having done four hours of sky today , i'm knackered!..also inbetween watching the tennis...this weekend there are the finals and the televised 'Live Earth' concert to disrupt my drawing...it's all fantastic!

What a guy!..one can only immagine what he could have done had the rain not played such a significant role this year!..I don't think we've seen the last of him though!
