Wimbledon Diary: Judy Murray’s Deliciano serves up a volley of spicy language
Tuesday 01 July 2014
He is Deliciano to Judy Murray and today Feliciano Lopez produced some tasty language during a dispute over a line call during his fourth-round defeat by Stan Wawrinka on No 2 Court. His industrial language was picked up by a BBC microphone and it was not long before the Beeb, so loath to give offence in these parts after last year’s Inverdalegate, was apolo-gising to one and all. Which surely makes it only a matter of time before we are given an apology for the contin-ued employment of Robbie Savage by BBC Sport.
Maia makes up for the boys
The Brit of the day award goes to Maia Lumsden, a 16-year-old from Glasgow. Lumsden has been on Judy Murray’s radar for some time and today she showed why, knocking out Catherine Cartan Bellis, the US No 2 seed and runner-up in the doubles at the French Open, in three sets in the girls’ singles. Lumsden had to be given a wildcard to be here. That cheered up Murray after she watched her “No 1 son” – as little brother Andy likes to call him – get knocked out of the men’s doubles. Jamie Murray and John Peers were beaten in a see-saw five-setter by Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares, the second seeds.
America dry, Canada high
Little wonder Americans are suddenly getting into their football team – there was not a single American left in either the women’s or men’s singles come the fourth round. And just to complete their miserable Wimbledon 2014, Milos Raonic joined Eugenie Bouchard in the quarter-finals, making this Canada’s best-ever Wimbledon – and on Canada Day, too.
