Wimbledon

What a great Wimbledon this year! I was glad to see Raonic in the final against Murray–with no Federer or Djokovic in sight (great champions and excellent guys, but enough already!). Andy really hit his form and showed that his best tennis is at least as good as anyone else’s best tennis. On a more sombre note I couldn’t help thinking, “England: gentleness, decency, fair play; America: violence, confrontation, win-at-all-costs”. Oversimplified, I know, but in the light of recent events (and not so recent) a thought it is hard to suppress. When is America going to own up to its love of violence and its belief in the act of cleansing violence that will put the world right? To put it differently, when is it going to grow up?
