Tennis and Ruby

I settled down last evening to watch Andy in Rotterdam. It is on Amazon Prime and Tennis TV. Serve was considerably better but still made lots of returns into the net, just wide or just long.

However, movement was very good, speed good, seemed a bit puffed at times but quite a few spectacular shots. Serve I think averaged between 55% and 60%. Still not great but better.

He lost the first set 6-2. Won the second set on a tie break 6-2 I think. Was 0-3 down in the third set. Oh dear thought I, he ain't recovering from that. Well he did. Crawled back to 3-3 before snatching victory.

I think having had coronavirus, even though he feels fine, he was certainly feeling it and was breathing hard, even early in the match.

Not sure how far he will go but he has at last earned a few points and has a hard fought match under his belt.

Ruby is beginning to respond at long last to her bland diet. She stopped having raw food about 5 weeks ago as something wasn't agreeing with her. She was slowly transistioned onto dry but just kept going downhill. She has been on this bland diet since Friday.

She will be changed onto something else, very very slowly, only when we are sure her guts are settled. Energy level is good though so that is something.

  1. Good to hear Rub us feeling a little better. I've been watching her progress with concern! Rub her ears for me (or whatever her particular pleasure is)

  3. I am glad that Ruby is getting better. Hopefully her tummy settles down.

    Our oldest son had Covid and even though he is over the virus still tires easily.

    God bless.

    1. Ruby is getting there. Today is the start of a slow transition onto new food. We shall do it over a week and see how she goes.

  4. It's difficult with a dog with digestive issues isn't it, they take so long to sort out. I hope she is feeling better. Suky is in the vets for the day, a complete overhaul for an aging Pug. Teeth, ears and nails, (even the groomers can only do about three of her nails at a time as she gets so stressed out, so while she is under anaesthetic they are going to do them all) the flat is very empty without her.

    1. Just ordered some slippery elm for the next time! For the first time she wasn’t happy to wander off with the vet:(
