Wimbledon 2012: Murray Mount holds off Greenygrey Gulch Grove

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams. The main screen viewing place at the Wimbledon tennis tournament changed from Henman Hill to Murray Mount after Tim Henman retired and Andy Murray took over as the big British men’s singles hope.

Murray Mounts Title Challenge

With Murray suffering a bad back at the start of the tournament, and greenygrey weather forecast for most of the tournament’s fortnight, we were ready to rename Murray Mount ‘Greenygrey Gulch Grove’ for the end of the tournament.

But Andy Murray has managed to win through to today’s Wimbledon men’s singles final, and there has been enough greenyblue weather to keep the tournament on schedule; although we are proud that the greenygrey centre-court roof did help.

Good luck to Andy Murray today, and congratulations to Britain’s Jonathan Marray and Denmark’s Freddie Nielsen for last night’s thrilling men’s doubles win.

While the greenypurple enjoys the limelight in the foreground, guess who’s doing most of the work in the background…! Not that we’re complaining; we’re just glad to be there:

The greenypurple has also taken a back seat at times:

And we’ve worked independently sometimes too:

We hope the greenyblue is going to do more work in the second week…
