Hi Mike,

Just to say that Andy Murray isn't the first Briton to win Wimbledon in 77 years.

Virginia Wade won in 1977 though she was playing in the girly competition...

I never understood why people allow pictures of them to be taken when they are holding glasses.

Just a note for the record - and this misstatement was a bone of contention with the UK press at the time - Murray was not the first Briton to win Wimbledon in 77 years, because Virginia Wade won the Women's Singles competition in 1977. Murray was the first male winner since 1936.

Mike, surely you "saw" Rod Laver win the Grand Slam the second time, in 1969 , when, I'm assuming, you were old enough to be aware of the sport? Or perhaps even interested enough to be playing and following it?

What's that little man on her shoulder whispering in her ear? ;-)


Let's call three Grand Slam tournament wins in a calendar year a Triple Crown or Hat Trick! How do we make this go viral? I'm going to tweet it, of course.

Before I do, which to you prefer? Hockey is another stick and "ball" sport, so maybe Hat Trick is better?
