Poor Andy Pandy...

It is so hard to watch someone you support being lack lustre and frustrated. Last nights match with Andy Murray against Fognini was of that vain, as in quite a few of his latest matches.

He played in almost total silence except at the end when he shouted "I can't move, why can't I move?"

Lack of movement was very apparent. Most drop shots by Fognini were left, reaching for out of reach shots were left etc. He would normally be chasing every ball, stretching for everything but he just couldn't, it was very odd.

He is most definately out of sorts. Ah well, Bedene did well initially against Novak, Kyle and Jamie are both playing today.

The rain has arrived which should enable me to get some much needed stakes into the ground to support drooping plants. Might have to think about spraying the tomatoes with Disprin to try and keep the blight at bay. I have done this for a few years now and it seems to work or else I have been very lucky.

  1. I'm interested in the disprin remedy for blight - I've never come across this before. What proportion, please, and can it be any soluble aspirin?

    1. I dissolve 1/2 a soluble disprin in warm water, top it up to 1 litre and spray it onto dry leaves, once a fortnight, occasionally once a week if it is hot and humid. All summer until final harvest.

  2. I also watched Andy last night. To be honest, I think he should take a few months off. He's obviously exhausted and I can't see him playing any better in the French Open and Wimbledon.

    1. I agree. I am pleased he made number one but staying there doesn't bother me. Maybe he will be better on a change of surface but he does still seem exhausted - post shingles possibly. Some people tahe 6 months to get back to normal.

  3. We had some good steady rain overnight, hope it's done some good.
    Hope Andy improves before French open although it will need to be a drastic improvement!

    1. Bless him, I just want to wrap him up and tell him it will all come good in the end.

    1. Disprin is just soluble aspirin.
