Just watching the wheelchair tennis. The first prize is £6000 each. Might just cover the cost of the wheels, but not enough to cover the frenchmans carbon fibre set up. is it just me, but I think that anyone in that situation, should get funding for that, but we should stop giving extra money in the form of incapacity benefit to alcoholics and drug addicts. Because , guess what, they just buy more drugs or alcohol with the extra money.
I see they have a big crowd. You have to admire the skills involved, all the usual rules but allowed an extra bounce. Somehow it makes for a more relaxing match, more skill and less bang, bang, out. Wouldn't it have been nice to put them on one of the larger show courts, with more seating.? I realise that the chairs will churn up the grass, but they will be stripping off all the grass tomorrow night anyway, to prep for next year. Obviously I realise centre court is kept for the major finals.
