Andy Murray has won the 2013 Wimbledon Men's title!!! =D

He beat Novak Djokovic in straight sets 6-4, 7-5, 6-4,  which I didn't think he would do, I thought it would go to five sets if he won it at all! It was such an amazing match! He had complete control in the first set, came back from 4-1 down in the second and then 4-2 down in the third. I was so nervous and there was a horrible moment in the second set when I thought Djokovic was going to break Murray's serve and he was going to end up beating him. In the last game of the match I ended up standing in the middle of the room jumping up and down and shouting at the TV! In the end Murray managed to be the first British man to win the Men's Singles title as Wimbledon since 1936!

Marion Bartoli also won the Women's title yesterday against Sabine Lisicki 6-1, 6-4.

It was quite a one sided match and Lisicki almost started crying on the court at one point.

Thought I would me a nice Wimbledon-y card and of course, I've had to do some strawberries, it's not Wimbledon without strawberries and cream!


I've used a Lili of the Valley stamp 'Strawberries' and the sentiment is also from LOTV 'Words for Tags'. I've coloured the image with Forest Green, Ruby, Poppy Satin, Pastel Beige, Ivory, Cool Grey 1, Cool Grey 2 and Cool Grey 3. Excuse the photograph, my camera isn't working very well so I've had to use my phone which is awful!

The German Grand Prix highlights were on afterwards and that was an bit of an interesting race! At one point the engine of Jules Binachi's Marussia exploded in a huge cloud of smoke, caught fire and then rolled backwards across the track after Bianchi had parked it before the marshals could roll it behind the barrier! There was another horrible moment when one of Mark Webber's pit stops went wrong and he was released too early causing a rear wheel that hadn't been tightened properly to come off the car and hit a camera man! Luckily he was alright but it was ridiculous that Red Bull let Webber out before they were sure all the tyres at been changed. In the end Mark Webber's tram mate Sebastian Vettel won the race, the first time on his home ground in Germany.
This year seems to be unnecessarily dangerous after there were five tyre blowouts at the British Grand Prix and a marshal was killed at the Canadian Grand Prix after falling under a crane that was moving a broken down car. Hopefully there won't be anymore horrible incidences this year!

It's been quite a stressful weekend of sport! Hope you like the card.

ANDY MURRAY WON!! Hooray!!! =D
