Gorilla = gentle, caring, maternal, sociable and apparently found in the mist.

Sports players = dedicted, focussed, behaving as you do when concentrating.

Sorry Bozo, I find it difficult to follow what the hell you are saying without reading sexist misogynist diatribe. It isn't time for your medication again is it?



To everybody else, Venus was in the best match up to yet the other day, wasn't she?

Good heavens, a choice of disagreeing with Bozo, or disagreeing with Mr Fluids but not both at the same time.

Bozo seems to think that "ladies" should behave like Victorian heroines, glow but never sweat, become faint under stress, and be devoid of physical power. And there is something of a hint of racism, in that he seems to liken the Williams sisters to gorillas.

Sorry, Mr Fluids, I'm going to have to agree with you, although I'd rather you said "medicine" than used the Americanism "medication".

"Defending Wimbledon champion Serena Williams complains about her court assignment Thursday, when she and Simona Halep were put on Court 2, the third most important court at Wimbledon behind Centre Court and Court 1. Wimbledon only plays three matches per day on both Centre Court and Court 1, and traditionally plays four men's matches and only two women's matches.

On Thursday, Roland Garros champion Li Na was scheduled to face Sabine Lisicki on Centre Court, while Maria Sharapova was set to face British teenager Laura Robson on Court 1. Serena's older sister, five-time Wimbledon champion Venus, has also taken issue with the All England Tennis Club over the issue in the past.

"They like to put us on Court 2, me and Venus, for whatever reason," said Serena, who defeated Haelp in three sets. "I haven't figured it out yet. Maybe one day we'll figure it out. But obviously they're not gonna change. [The men's defending champions] are never moved across. Actually, Venus and I have won more Wimbledons together than a lot of the players, or by ourselves in doubles even. Like I said, they're not going to change, doesn't look like.""

If it's not screaming and grunting from some, it's paranoia from others, apparently.

Agree with Kitty re Li Na & Lisicki, but thought Li might have been a bit more gracious in defeat. Obviously she was going to be disappointed; but she might have raised a smile and uttered a congratulatory word rather than the perfunctory handshake & otherwise ignoral she treated her victrix to.

Happy you are agreeing with Mr Fluids, whoever he is. Hope M'Unlearned Friend is not agreeing with me too, or I may have to alter my stance on this.

Glad you liked the use of the term medication. It is the term of reference in The UK. Doubt it has reached Kent yet, but as it is used in UK healthcare including (at the top of the list) The British National Formulary, as well as in every reference I know of in guidelines from Dept of Health, The Academy of Royal Colleges and every arms length body publication...

Oh, and if you know any real solicitors, ask them to look up The Health and Social Care Act 2008, and especially the Regulated Activity Regulations 2010. The guidance for compliance (I have a copy open on my computer, as I use it most days) has, on a word search, 863 occurrences.

I write papers that are published on the subject and as such I use four style guides; DH itself, CQC, HCC and CSCI. Guess what?



Sorry, back to gonzo, bozo or whatever.

Kitty, I may have to come slightly off the fence and admit as a bloke, I didn't mind the grunting.... (Get me coat etc.)

Tunesmith: you clearly go back further than me, but I recall my coach (also an early coach of a far-better player - Tod Woodbridge) saying Lew Hoad's volleying skills would have been more than a match for the passing shots of Borg.

Also, as I've said in prose, females should, rather, play TABLE tennis as it puts far less stress on the racket-arm - Tennis Tips to Try

Subject: BS: Tennis Wimbledon Baghdatis refreshing
From: Arthur_itus
Date: 25 Jun 11 - 03:26 PM

I have felt for quite some time that there are not any characters anymore in tennis. Everything is so serious.

So today I watched the Baghdatis v Djokovic third round match.

How bloody refreshing to see a character in the game. Baghdatis fought like a dog but smiled and showed he was enjoying himself.

He lost in the end, but he had all the crowd behind him.

Such a refreshing change to watching such boring people like Murray (even though he is an excellent player and I hope he wins the competition).

It would be lovely if we could see a few players coming through with character and crowd pleasers like Connors, McEnroe, Nastasi and people like them.

That was the first match so far where I have thoroughly enjoyed the match.

Great stuff.

I should rather see the game played cheerfully, but seriously with the intention of winning ~ so I much enjoyed and admired Baghdatis. Those who distract from the purpose of the game by going out of their way to curry the crowd's favour by being "personalities" and "cards" and "characters", with irrelevant clowning and misplaced time-wasting would-be humour (above-named Nastase was the prime example IMO), get on my nerves...

... as, I agree with gnu, do conceited egotists who log on to threads on topics they hate, purely to inform us of that world-shatteringly interesting & important fact: they are an entire waste of space & time.

Blimey, I never expected it to get nasty! If you don't like Baghdatis or the way he performd or behaves on court, that's fine, discuss. If you don't like tennis, why bother to post at all.

All I was saying was that I enjoyed the match (don't normally enjoy many matches in the first week as they are too one sided). It was one of those matches where the underdog almost sneaked it and fought hard right up to the end.

Looking forward to the next week very much. It certainly would be very nice to see Murray get into the final and if at all possible, win. Helps detract from all the shit things that go on in this world.

"Then there's clicket. Or cricket. Or hoppers. Or whatever they call it. Thank the gods that be that it's foreign to North America."

And you'll be glad to know that it always will be. As there's a requirement for at least two functioning brain cells to understand its rules, and an attention-span exceeding that of a goldfish to watch a game, it's entirely unsuitable for North Americans. That's why North America has the greatly-simplified and shortened version of cricket known as Baseball (or as we call it here, "Cricket for The Brainless").

I'd go a bit further Backwoodsman and remind our former subjects from the colonies that what they call baseball we call rounders and restrict it to little girls in the school playground.

Mind you, cricket has, since Murdoch took over the televising, one aspect the cousins would like. Lots of scope for adverts between overs.

And whilst we are getting it off our Albion chest, rugby players don't need body armour and when we say football we mean a real game.
