Been to the "Tour de Yorkshire" today, initially went to Howden this morning had time for a coffee before watching the ladies race come through.

Then to Beverley in time for lunch and see all the teams introduced before cheering them off for the grand start.
Nice weather certainly brought big crowds out.

Due to ongoing injury concerns Andy Murray calling time on his Tennis career. Possible after Wimbledon? I hope he stays fit enough.

Great player on his day. Part of that quadruple in Federer, Nadal & Djokovic that have thrilled Tennis fans over the last Decade or so.

Some people think he's dour because he's not all song and dance in front of the camera's. I'd say in this age of drama that's refreshing to me.

The greatest British player ever. Now that is something to be proud of. Enjoy the rest of your life Andy. :clap:

Subjective obviously John. Especially has i never got to see Fred Perry in action. Imo because of the amount of players on tour and the quality of the above names mentioned, to reach number 1 in the world in that company you have to be pretty special. Even i would back myself to return a serve back in the 1930-40's :shifty:

There's only one winner when it comes to fashion tho. :angel:

You can only be judged 'in your own time'. Perry won 8 Grand Slams and 3 consecutive Wimbledon's.

Congratulations to Judd Trump (must be in the name) on winning his first Snooker World Championship. :clap:

Despite the Rocket going out early, the tournament was the best ever. Records going for century breaks in the tournament and also the final.

Judd has finally realised his special talent. No current player plays attacking shots like Trump, is cue power is phenomenal, and now is safety game as caught up he is a formidable force. Great to see other professionals giving him his dues. Lets hope he can take over the mantle from Ronnie and entertain us for many years to come and not do a Shaun Murphy.

Have to agree Vid, that’s the best tournament ever, think they are stretching it saying it was one of the best finals ever though.

We go there every year, this year we saw Gilbert V Perry and Trump v Un Nooh. Trump could have lost that too, just shows how one result can turn a tournament.
