Frustrated Murray out of Japan Open

The mangled racket on the ground next to his seat told you everything about Andy Murray’s determination to give of his best every week from now onwards. The US Open champion was beaten 6-3, 6-7, 7-6 by Milos Raonic here yesterday in the semi-finals of the Japan Open, his first tournament since New York, but played with a passion that you might not have expected at the end of long season from a man who has just won his first Grand Slam title and Olympic gold.

Rebecca Armstrong: Hen nights can be amazing – or horribly embarrassing

I caught sight of a rather unusual list on a work friend's notepad recently. I won't go into the graphic details, but she was compiling a list of synonyms for the male member. After having a good goggle at it (and suggesting a few additions), I asked why she'd put penis to paper. It was all in aid of a forthcoming hen night, she explained, where each attendee would be given an alternative name for the night, chosen from the fruits of her labour. There was also going to be a stripper from the Full Monty school of disrobement. Luckily, I don't know the hen in question, so won't be invited to the festivities (and if I was, I'd already be compiling my own list – of excuses as to why I couldn't come).
