Right, come on Wawrinka and Cilic. Let's have a proper changing of the guard tournament!

Breast reduction surgery is about removing a handicap, not gaining an advantage.

Same goes for correcting poor eyesight (e.g. Djokovic wearing contact lenses) - it's about levelling the playing...

I must see if I can find a recording of that match and see if it was as outlandish a performance as I remember. My memory is of Rosol playing stupidly high risk tennis and pretty much everything...

At his best, Rio was an outstanding defender.

However, he was already noticeably starting to struggle in the 2012/13 season and has been creaking and straining to keep up the times he's played this...

With a logic hammer, yeah. If he was that important they'd not have been in with a chance in the first place.

All defending is about teamwork and it's a hell of a lot easier for the defenders when the whole team defends well, but the difference a world class centre back makes isn't reflected in just the...

Valencia's tackle was a coming together by both players for a 50-50 challenge - both of them put their studs into the other player's leg. The difference is that the Munich player behaved like a baby...

Yes. Why on earth not?

Given how long in the tooth thrash is I'd expect more originality out of someone wearing those than someone turning up with all the metal clichés in place.

It's interesting reading http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/19418328 since it suggests that there's a negative spiral problem that could do with being addressed - black players seeing a lack of...

His turn as The Marquis de Carabas in the TV version of Neverwhere had a certain Doctor-ish quality to it. I think he would have been an excellent choice.

To an extent I think it'd be fun to have a...

My instant reaction was no. But then I think that's because Malcolm Tucker was such an iconic character.

Ok, the reason why I'm sure he means the brain rather than physical eyesight deterioration is that one's easily corrected and the other isn't. Novak Djokovic wears contact lenses after all.

"Fury as viewers slam BBC over TV outrage".

Meaning: an elderly lady in Berwick-upon-Tweed was slightly upset about something she mis-heard whilst watching the 6 o'clock news.
