We went for a short bike tour, but the weather is strange and oppressive/sweltering.

Morning all, hope everyone had a good sleep and is rested and ready for Sunday.

I've got too much to do today, so I'm trying to lower my expectations early, of getting everything done  ;)

Wimbledon used to be carried on NBC in the US, now it's only on the sports channel ESPN, and the Tennis channel.  I'm trying to keep up online with live updates, but since I don't know the first thing about tennis or scoring, it's difficult  ;D

Hi Ingy!  Me, too....you can keep up with the scoring here...it's updated every few minutes.  Of course it's not like watching it...

what does this mean?

BREAK POINT SAVED - return not in play after a big Djokovic serve.

That means that Fed. could have won the entire set (although Dj is currently serving) but Dj managed to make this decisive point. So it's back to 40/40.

In order to win a game, you need two points/strikes difference.

In order to win an entire set, you need two games difference (6-4 or 7-5)

In case of equality at the end of a set (6-6), there's the tie-break where every single point counts.

There you have to win with at least a two point difference too (7-5 or 7-4, 7-3, 7-2, 7-1...)

Ohhhhh...ok...still a little confusing to me, but I'm trying to keep up with reading, instead of seeing and listening to the commentators.  thanks  :)

I found a live broadcast (not showing the play, just commentary) on Twitter...you can just see the court outside the window where they're broadcasting but not the players...but for me, it's easier to see and hear them talk about it.

Good morning Diners!

I hope everyone is well!

It was a good time with my friends last night, and the donuts were a hit!
