Tennis from Delhi wasn't shown much but I did get to see lovely Jamie Murray (sigh, soon to be married :( ) win his first round singles match to a largely empty crowd (literally about 8 Scottish team mates), but alas he lost his second round match and all his doubles. I'm sure I had a screen capture of him playing, but I can't find- it's ok though because he wasn't smiling at all, even after he won. Hope he isn't getting a touch of the Andys? Scotland did have success in the mixed doubles- Colin Fleming (AKA the cute one) and Joss Rae (started off as 'some girl' ended up as 'really good player who held it together') won the gold. Woo, and England won silver in the men's doubles- Skupsi and Hutchins. Sania Mirza won in the women's doubles but only took Silver in the women's singles. The stadium that had been almost entirely empty in previous rounds was packed full and super noisey as Mira played.
She's the Indian superstar you see, young, pretty, and talented she represents India almost single handedly. She's also a Muslim who wears sexy dresses, and says that sex before marriage is ok as long as its safe, and married a divorced Pakistani cricketer. Erm you remember that story right? She was engaged to someone else, that ended and a few months later she was engaged to Shoaib Malik. He, it turned out, was already married to a woman he had never met and had married over the phone. He claimed she had lied to him and he had married another woman over the phone. Well that's ok then Shoaib. Anyway, one quickie divorce later, he and Sania were married.

Lots of bugs. Yuck.

If you're the one that's gonna walk home with a $750,000 cheque in your back pocket, then you should be the one that actually plays the match. The commentators disagree of course, its a wonderful addition to the game, mainly because it made Wozniaki play better (hmm so might performance enhancing drugs or a three hour mid match kip, doesn't mean it's a good idea). Oh jeepers- she's 4-1 up and he's still coming on. tbh, I'm not sure she asks for him as much as he justs walks on, which is what you get if your dad coaches you I guess. Also, shes got a new ugly dress which is almost the same as the last one but with sheer arms. Just odd.
