“The British Are a Lovely People. Not Physically, But …”

Posted by gauloises1 on January 3, 2010

Team GB hitting the practice courts in Perth in preparation for the Hopman Cup:

Sorry for the overload of very similar photoage, but in this long and freezing winter, these two are warming what passes for my heart.

Oh, and one more:

I say he’s hot, damnit.

Team GB will be hitting the courts against Kazkhstan in the first night session, starting 5.30 p.m. local time. The day session is Russia vs. Germany (Dementieva/Andreev vs. Licky/Kohlschreiber). Fun!

    totes adorbs.
    hmmm. I was trying to make a decision re which team gets my vote. Team Germany seemed to be winning. but this picspam might have titled the scales in favor of the Brits.

      Sadly I don’t think the Brits have much of a chance. You’d be wiser to go with Team Germany or Team Anyone Else.

      I would like Team Romania to win, maybe, if the Brits can’t. Or Germany, because they have Licky …

    Saw the RBS and Highland Spring logos and thought he hadn’t moved from Fred Perry after all,this Adidas thing is going to take some time for me to get used to… 😛
    And,*whispers* go Team GB!Our Tims need all the support they can get!

    Andy’s looks have improved over the past year by quite a bit but he would look a lot hotter without the puberty ‘stache.

    So this is going to be my most random comment ever, but the first thing that caught JJ and my eye in the photos was the Dyson “fan” sitting next to Murray. I have no idea how the thing works since it really looks like a plastic ring to me, but it costs $299.99 (and the only reason I know this is we bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner yesterday, and while exploring the website to decide upon the model we wanted, we came across the fans…and that anecdote makes me feel like I’m turning it such a housewife). So now I’m really curious as to whose fan it is — is it Murray’s? Does the Hopman Cup provide $300 fans to all participants?

  5. Haha. Laura looks like she is Andy’s little sister.

    Funny twitter today from Andy ’bout colour coordinating question from his mix double partner

  8. Jacko said

    From Murray Twatter:
    “Got a message from my partner asking what colour my clothes r today… So we don’t clash in the doubles very important issue I think hehe”

    I think i love Robbo now….although i did just blog some mean stuff about her……
    and WHY DOES MUZZ LOOK HOTT IN THAT PIC??!!! *is disgusted with self*

    Post match interview so much adorable. Wish I could quote entire thing. Obvs can’t do it justice. Youtube a must.

    You had occasional good points?
    LRob: Occasional?

    Have you any family here?
    LRob: Well, there’s aunty, cousin, cousin, uncle, cousin, oh and my mum. Hi Nan and Pop! They’re watching at home.

    How do you think you’ll cope with all the pressure as you come up, has Andy given you any advice?
    LRob: Andy hasn’t given me any advice. I don’t really pay much attention to all that media malarky.
    LRob: It was the only word that came to my mind.

    What did you learn about your game?
    LRob: That I need to improve my serve, and we need to communicate better so he doesn’t hit me.

    How are you holding up physically?
    Muzz: I was already a bit tight from carrying Laura.

    Just, watch it. Ok. Because it was adorbz.

      I will officially kill for video of that.

      • FortuneCookie said

        Just saw it on the Sky coverage,loved it,to add to Nic’s comment the bit where Andy said he thought Laura lost her concentration a bit when she asked him if he moisturised his hands was pretty adorbz!
        Even more adorable?Andy’s pats on the back for Laura because he clearly feels awkward hugging an underage girl on court 😛
