    Hopefully people do better job of social distancing when UK pubs reopen next month!

    Murray is a real warrior, such a hard worker. Some footballers could learn a lot from him, immensely talented no doubt but that extra effort and mentality has brought him so much success.

    Casper Ruud also came back from 2-0 down to win and progress to the 2nd round. Very impressive by the 21 year old Norwegian. I think he might be the surprise of the tournament. I have a feeling he'll reach the QF.

    I hadn’t realised that the French Open has been rescheduled for later this month.

    So the only Slam cancelled this year is Wimbledon, guess that pandemic insurance was just too lucrative to turn down!

    Was a different beast, was slap bang in lockdown and to delay in the weather would not work.

    A good mate of mine works for the Melbourne equivalent of Centre Court, called Rod Laver, at the Australian Open. The effort that is going into this year's tournament due to Covid is insane. Should mean however that it goes ahead smoothly, with fans. Rod Laver is a futuristic court, a bit like our stadium in its cutting edge features. I'm looking forward to going to an evening session mid February.

    Haha to be honest I’d never heard of Rod Laver until I got here. If you were comparing him to a footballer, who would he be?

    Maybe Pele, as I never saw him play or know what the standard was like at the time but he is widely regarded as the best of his era!

    A legend mate, one of the two names Adidas used to introduce the tennis trainer to the world (Stan Smith being the other)...I always preferred Rod Laver on and off the court...
