  1. I watched Tour de France …then switched over to the tennis…as I was reading news.com….and noticed their live reporting was still going…. I don’t know how either of them were standing….in fact Djokovic did go down near the end…but still won…Two amazing warriors.

  2. It was worth staying up for the cricket – it was the best one day game I have ever seen (even better than the 1999 world cup semi final). New Zealand must feel robbed though. And that Ben Stokes is actually a Kiwi by birth must be rubbing salt into their wounds.
