WEDNESDAY'S SPORTING ACTION ...........
Big day today, with the Men's quarter finals at Wimbledon and the Copa Libertadores final second leg at the Maracana stadium in Brazil, in front of 100,000 crazed supporters.
Hopefully the weather will not play too big a role in the tennis, the forecast is poor today and it has been overcast all morning, but the rain has not yet arrived. There was a huge television audience for the Murray - Gasquet match on Monday, with over one in six of the population watching, no doubt TV executives will not be too unhappy if Murray's match with Nadal, which is due second on centre court, is delayed a little, to capture the dinner time viewers. Several are probably doing a (mini) rain dance as I type.
I have previewed four events on the email service an equal split between tennis and football, putting up five selections. My form remains very good, with nine winning weeks from the last eleven, full details can be viewed on this link.
I am intending to put a selection on the blog later today, so please check back.
