Once every four years, Wimbledon has to take second place to the World Cup. Britains' best hope, Tim Henman is already out of the competition due to having had to face Federer in the second round. Our new best hope for this year is Andy Murray. Greg Rusedski lost in the first round. Although we're happy to latch onto what's available, it's been a long time since Britain has seen a real home-grown tennis hero or heroine. These days, and for a considerable number of years, the game has been dominated by the USA (even though in this neck of the woods they only seem to concern themselves with basketball and ice hockey).

Murray has just beaten Roddick in straight sets. Come on Andy!

Andy Murray was knocked out in straight sets to Marcos Baghdatis. Ah well, but he's still young so hopefully we'll see a lot more from Murray over the next few years.
