British Tennis...

I'd just like to say how very pleased I am for a fellow Sheffielder, Jonathan Marray and his Danish partner, who, as last minute wildcard entrants into the tournament, not only vanquished their fifth seed opponents, Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau 4-6 6-4 7-6 6-7 6-3 in the Wimbledon Men's Doubles Final in an astonishingly high quality display of doubles tennis, but, more importantly, brought back hope to all grass roots tennis players throughout the country that fairy tales can happen.

Jonathan Marray, I hope, when you woke up this morning and pinched yourself, that you will also remind yourself that you are a Wimbledon Champion... and always will be!

And now, to another rather important game of tennis... this afternoon.

Andy Murray, may every ounce of strength, resolve, good fortune and self knowledge that you are one of the best tennis players in the world... be in your mind all day until the final ball is played.
