Cricket and tennis

Let’s hope we get a full day’s cricket today. I was really annoyed on Thursday that it rained at the Aegeas Bowl thirty miles away but not here. Yesterday, we were living in gloom here and it rained (far too gently) all afternoon, yet not at Southampton. Cricket is so strange without a crowd watching.

Has anyone else been watching Old Wimbledon? I’ve seen some of the evening programmes and found them quite fun. I don’t think it’s just nostalgia that makes me think tennis was more entertaining (especially the women’s game) when they played with wooden rackets and skill was more important than power.
