....now when was the last time that we had three players on the entry list for Wimbledon?  And if Tim doesn't retire, and Boggo continues his rise, will we get four next year? Boggo missed the alternates list by just a whisker. Here's to Alex at the US open by rights!

Now wouldn't that be nice.  Then Uncles Tim & Greg could retire to the commentary box in 2008, and thrash McEnroe on the seniors tour.

Good article in the Scotsman......


Wimbledon set for record Scots entry


SCOTLAND could have a record representation of eight competitors at Wimbledon this year if organisers give the usual allocation of wildcards to British competitors. Andy Murray, the world No45, will again be the focus of attention, but the supporting cast will include his brother, Jamie, and up to a half a dozen other hopefuls.


The elder Murray has high hopes of competing in the doubles along with Colin Fleming from Linlithgow, while Karen Paterson could be given an English partner and receive a wildcard for the women's doubles. Elena Baltacha, the British No2, will compete in the women's singles, Alan Mackin and Jamie Baker should be included in the men's draw, and 16-year-old Graeme Dyce, the recipient of a scholarship from the Bollettieri Academy in Florida, will take part in the junior singles.

From Sporting Life:

Murray appeals to British tennis fans not to expect too much this year at Wimbledon:

Andy Murray, the rising star of British tennis, appealed to tennis fans not to expect too much at Wimbledon this year.

The 19-year-old Scot bowed out of the French Open in the first round on Tuesday when his fragile physique again found him out in his match against Frenchman Gael Monfils.

He suffered a back problem in the tie-break of the second set of his five-set defeat, caused by the fact that his spine is weak because it is not yet fully grown.

Murray, who reached the third round at Wimbledon last year before cramping badly against David Nalbandian, plans a series of strengthening exercises over the next few weeks and is optimistic he will be in good shape for his trip to SW19.

But he said: "The expectations of people might be a little bit too big just now. I hope everybody tries to keep it in perspective.

"When you're not seeded, if you draw Federer it's tough to say you're going to go further than the year before. Just depends on the luck of the draw.

"I'll be doing exercises for my lower back but on the grass it's a bit different. It's pretty soft. It doesn't put too much strain on the body. You don't really use the same muscles. My back didn't really hurt me at all during Wimbledon last year.

"I've got enough time to see the physio and get a lot of massage and do some exercises to get it better. I should be okay.

"If I play well I'll be happy. If I play badly I'll be disappointed. But I've got a lot more years of playing Wimbledon if I don't do so well this year. I had a great Wimbledon last year."

He is also prepared for the 'Murray mania' which is bound to break out during Wimbledon fortnight.

He added: "I had a little bit of it at Wimbledon last year. I played well and there wasn't much pressure on me.

"I think it could be a little mad around Queen's and Wimbledon this year. I'll see how I deal with it.

"I hope it goes in my favour. If not I'm going to try to get used to it."

Murray, currently 45 in the world, might be a slow developer physically but his mental maturity is not in doubt. While others have questioned his continuing injury problems he remains unfazed.

Murray said: "There's no need to panic. I'm only 19. I'm going to play these tournaments for the next 12, 13 years. I'm pretty well grounded.

"I realise where I am going. I can't win every match. But if I can get a little bit more consistency my ranking should start going even higher."

Who's going this year ?

I'm going on 1st Friday, Bethan's going on the middle Saturday, Madeline's going on the 2nd Thursday and Kate and Lucy are going for most of the two weeks.

Has anyone else got tickets or are queuing ?

I'll be queuing for a ground pass on the second Friday as well as having tickets the day before - not sure what there will be to watch apart from juniors/seniors, but we can always sit on Henman Hill and watch the men's semis. Probably will, in fact.

I got a letter in on Friday saying I'd won centre court tickets for the first day in the ballot. So happy - been running about like a maddy ever since trying to get transport sorted. I just assumed that since I hadn't heard in May that I hadn't been successful, but it came in eventually.

Fingers crossed I have a wee bit more success with this trip after the debacle I had at the DC tie.

Congrats on that Ria ! That should be great, I got centre tickets for day one last year and saw Fed, Davenport, Safin and Baltacha.

Where abouts are you sitting ? Last year it was extremely hot, my friend got sunstroke.

Have you been before ?

Nope - never been before. This is the first time we've ever applied for tickets which is why I was so shocked when the letter came in last week. I've never been to London before so I've had the maps out looking for the closest bus and train stations. Trying to get the travel sorted has been the problem because I want to travel down on the Sunday night and back up on the Monday night but I guess a lot of people have the same idea because the sleeper train is all booked up so it's looking like it might be the bus.

I have no idea where the seats are yet - I guess I should get the tickets in early next week (hopefully). I guess with your friend getting sunstroke that should be a warning - I turn into lobster woman when the sun-shines so I guess I'll stock up on the factor 25 before I go.

Make sure you're stocked with plenty of food before you go, don't rely on getting any from Wimbledon itself because the queues for the food and drink tents are enormous. By 1.30pm the queue for the ice cream was 30 long and all of the Pimms tents were absolutely full.

Trying to find different places eg: toilets, outside courts, bank etc also takes quite a lot of time, you have to be prepared for that.

I was lucky on centre because my seat was at the far side while my friend was sitting almost opposite the umpire's chair where the glare of the sun was brightest.

It's amazing how close you feel to the players on centre, I could hear Safin swearing to himself and Baltacha was muttering "get a grip and stop punting that forehand out of court" which was funny. She got really frustrated and smacked a ball into the royal box

First post updated for latest withdrawals.

Aria81, the (rather expensive) program on sale there has a good map of the grounds to sort out where everything is. Or you can be canny and print the map off the Wimbledon website! Enjoy - I intend to!
