    Why doesn't he retire? He's never going to win a grand slam. He has annoying mannerisms. Tennis is shit, and Brits are shit at it. Please spare us the endless news reports about his failures.

    He just reached the final of a third Grand Slam. Yeah, he's shit.

    We had this for years with Henman and Rusedski. Enough is enough. If he was a winner he'd have won already.

    He's a lot better than Henman or Rusedski. And he's won plenty of tournaments.

    He's quite clearly going to win a grand slam.

    He's twenty-three, has won more than twelve million dollars in prize money, travels the world playing a game he loves, and is shagging this girl despite being a reasonably ugly fella:

    I'd rather watch Lee Westwood practice his putting TBH.

    Déjà vu

    Tennis is probably the wettest game in the world and he still can't win.

    Only golf is more shit than tennis, and Westwood is the most dull golf player.

    he's got the scottish choking gene.

    if he does finally win a grand slam, it'll be that british fighting spirit which will seem him through.

    Stop breaking taboos. It's too many in one night.

    If you think tennis is shit, why do you watch it?

    Tennis is the ultimate game of those aspiring to enter the upper middle class

    I don't, but I'm nevertheless plagued by reports of his inability to win a grand slam being shoved in my face.

    Another taboo exploded! Or was it the same old one?

    You've never played it then? I played as a kid, once, when I was a junior cross-country champion, and nearly fucking expired.

    How do you know about his 'annoying mannerisms' then?


    And what are these mannerisms?

    Yep. Can't say I'm particularly grand at it - I tended to be good at running fast in straight lines and hitting things - but it's fair to say that you'll be able to see people of all ages and abilities ineptly hitting the ball at courts around the country, particularly in the weeks around Wimbledon. It's more pressing than Badminton, less so than squash and ability tends to limit the number of fast paced rallies than most amateurish players will encounter. And even today you can still see half fit Williams sisters, fresh from bouts of inactivity and fashion designing, beating the majority of the supposedly highly competitive womens field with depressing regularity.

    I find it a bit a dull game tbh - it's huge around the public schools around here, but it's not something most of us got to play too much. It's not exactly a game full of rufty tufty salt of the earth types to inspire the masses. We get Henman and latterly miserable Murray - I suppose we could hope for a Nike-sponsored pirate lite with dodgy knees like Natal, or aspire towards the the starched grace of Federer, but the prospects don't fill me with joy.
