So...Henman Hill, now Murray Mount remains, for another year at least, Bumbler's Bump and 1936, for British tennis (just like 1966 for British football), is the latest date for excellence that we can do, as 1936 was the last time that an Englishman (Fred Perry) won the men's trophy in the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Association Championships. Fred Perry is shown in the picture of his statue at the Wimbledon Ground.
Poor wee Murray exhausted himself in the first set and then made a couple of dozen wholly unforced errors, which made him look as though he hasn't quite finished his apprenticeship. You need to sharpen up, Andy and good luck for next year but I am not sure that I shall have the stomach to watch you again.
