SW19 Diary: Ed Sheeran helps Andy Murray fend off sheer boredom
Wednesday 04 July 2012
Andy Murray killed the downtime in his match by listening to Ed Sheeran.
Dealing with breaks in play is a feature of Wimbledon and Murray, who also turns to PlayStation, believes he's getting better at it: "This time I did a pretty good job but that hasn't always been the case."
Williams' kid stays in the picture
Richard Williams has coached his daughters from the very beginning – his mantra of "run for every ball" was practised relentlessly by Serena in her win over Petra Kvitova yesterday – but he was a father before his coaching duties and the dad in him came out as Serena sealed her victory over the champion. He whipped out a large camera and began snapping his youngest daughter's moment of triumph.
Kvitova's father appears all cried out
The other side of the players' box on Centre Court was less busy for the Williams v Kvitova match. Last year Kvitova's father had greeted her Wimbledon triumph with floods of tears. Yesterday he watched David Ferrer win the first match on Centre, and then made himself scarce when his daughter appeared – and lost.
