SW19 Diary: Andy Murray's post box still good as gold
A popular spot for photographs just outside the courts is the gold pillar box painted in honour of Andy Murray's Olympic victory here last summer. It looks in better shape than its sister postbox in Murray's home town of Dunblane, which is reported to have suffered from fans picking flakes of gold paint off it.

Game, set and match-maker?
Murray revealed his tweet: "Thanks for your support! @emwatson" in response to actress Emma Watson's tweet of "Murray, Murray, Murray" was at the behest of Scott Sears, the brother of his girlfriend, Kim, who "is a massive fan" of the actress. Is match-making to be another Murray talent?
