I was just about to create a post about her.

Very sad. Dying so young, just married and so quick after learning about the illness.

RIP!

Yes, so sad. Died just when life was about to start in fulness. This beautiful sunny day makes it even more poignant.
I hope she was prepared.

.......

For some reason I kept thinking about Elena all day yesterday.

It turned out the father first shot his wife in her sleep, then the 18 year old son, 16 year old daughter, set the house on fire and then finally killed himself.
Apparently, financial troubles.
This happens very often in Switzerland (minus the fire) as all men have a gun at home. Part of Swiss Defence policy to give it to them after serving compulsory 2 year national service.

I can only think it's because this is the era of spineless people.
Selfish and unused to hardship. Instant society in which patience and sacrifice are becoming extinct.
Smallest bit of trouble - they crack.

One of the reasons I think gun licence in today's day an age is not a very good idea.

Never a fan of Inverdale but shame he has to lose his job for a silly mistake like that. I understand the BBC must have been under lots of pressure because this potical correctness has become so big now that large organisations are given 0 tolerance on sexism and racial comments. What I find annoying about this is that we all know what human nature is and as much as one wants to reprieve and hide that sexism and racial side of ours, the fact it is still there and chances are  it will always be.

Political correctness is Anglo-Saxon (media being their mighty tool) gagging prison of free speech and free thinking.
One needs to stand up to it.

I feel deeply sorry for the young generation who know no better, so it is our duty to educate them to be brave and fight for their right to be free.

I've just read that Marion has landed a commentating job with ITV during Roland Garros.
I hope sacking Inverdale wasn't one of the conditions for accepting it.

I don;t think so. I read that she did not mind Inverdale's remark. I actually was not a fan of Inverdale anyway so I won;t mind his leaving....just the the way it was done.

I don't have a TV so don't even know what he's like...but know that Marion herself said a similar thing about herself several years ago, so it's a shame they dealt with the guy in such a heavy-handed fashion...as if commentators weren't handcuffed already not being allowed to discuss doping and many other aspects of the game.
Tennis TV has Robbie, Lester and Goodall usually, Mercer only for Dubai, so I rarely listen to commentary as it's so pro-Nadal every time.
They seem to talk more and more and say less and less these days.

Boodles have announced their players' list for the season.
I go on Thursday as that's the day Nole plays.
Some really good entries. I wish they could tempt Fed just once!!!!!
Would be interesting to see Raonic's serve from up close and have a chat.
Will say hello to him on behalf of his biggest fan here Winking
Last year I saw Nole-Dimi, apparently that was the best match in Boodles history.
After them it was Dolgo- Cilic. Dolgo's serve was inspirational and jaw-dropping!
Saw Hantukova practising, as well, and she looks twice as thin in real life!!!!

For someone who claims not to be a Nadal fan Doh , you sound a lot like the other "blind" and ignorant Nadal fans we can see commenting on that article.

Why don't you try and forget your "blind" love for the guy and look at it from an objective observer viewpoint? Wasn't Federer at his age already a father? Isn't Nole, who is a year younger already a father? Even Murray is married. I could understand Nadal's fear or getting married as his parents were getting separated at some point and Nadal is known to have a lot of fear a lot of the time, but still...

I was being facetious, I never claimed not to be a Nadal fan... 
He said after he retires he wants to have a family. You have no evidence either way, but are simply speculating to try and have a dig at his personal life. 
Pretty poor, but what do we expect from Nadal haters, the standard just gets lower every day.

OK, Andy Murray got married.

Two things I don't understand:

Why the self-proclaimed brave-hearted men in Scotland wear skirts?
Why so many people stood in miserable weather to catch a glimpse of a couple getting married?

This celebrity culture is depressing.
