    hi cazza, it's a shame but the Herald is now behind a pay wall, tho first para gives the picture.
    well, andy has decided he needs the warm up tourneys before the 1000 pointer, but that's his choice, practice, points or recovery time.
    his season has a long way to run, let's hope he has the legs.

    It isn't a paywall, Harriet, thankfully. You have to register to read, but it's free.

    Harriet, as Madeline says, the Herald is currently free. Its just that you need to register to read their articles.

    Having said that the Times did this to start with and after a few moths we had to pay. So it wouldn't surprise me if this is an iniial step to make us pay. I have noticed a few other papers requiring reigstration too.

    It takes work to set up even if it's available for the software used by forumotion and it's not really worth it on a temporary forum such as this one.

    Besides - peeps seem to be managing OK without 'thanks' which we've lived without for about 6 months now.

    That is a really weird photo. I don't mean because of the facial expression, but because if that is his service action, it is really strange. His left arm is already too far back for the position of his right arm. I'll have to try to look at slow motion videos of his serving to see if it really is that odd, or maybe it's just a strange photo.
