Doubles doubles ...

We stayed up to watch Andy Murray/Heather Watson, and Jamie Murray/ Johanna Konta play their respective mixed doubles tennis matches, on tv, at the same time. It involved a lot of channel hopping on the red button!

Unfortunately Jamie and Johanna were just not flowing despite moments of inspiration and eventually lost. Eventually we settled to watching Andy and Heather. They jelled really well, played well and won their match. Andy had had just 45 minutes warning to play.

His singles match was rather a fraught one and honestly, I thought he was out. Johanna, whom I was not expecting to win again Kerber, just couldn't do anything right, became frustrated, and eventually lost.

I really feel for Jamie but he doesn't appear to be in form and there is not a lot you can do about that. I am sure it will be a great learning curve for Johanna and arriving quickly into the top 10 or so takes a bit of getting used to, but I am sure she will get there.

We also watched some of the cycling, swimming and have been enjoying the diving. Enjoy yourseves this weekend folks, and have a good one!
