Big Jim’s weekend wrap

Written by James Potter

What a massive weekend in sport, with one of sport’s biggest droughts ending. The crowd was going crazy on “Henman’s Hill” at the All England Club, as Scot Andy Murray broke a 77 year drought for British players at Wimbledon. The last British men’s winner was Fred Perry in 1936. Although he lacks the charisma of Novak Djokovic, Murray showed a steely resolve that he wasn’t always known to have. The game at 5-4 in the third set was some of the best tennis you will ever see.

While all of this was taking place, Sebastian Vettel was creating his own piece of history as he became the first German to win a German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring in the history of the Formula One World Championship. This was another action packed Formula One race, with Vettel just holding on from a fast finishing Kimi Raikkonen and his Lotus team-mate Romain Grosjean of France. Things didn’t go as smoothly for the other Red Bull driver, Mark Webber. He was looking good in second spot until a tyre came loose as he exited the pit lane – injuring s cameraman and seeing the Australian eventually rejoin the race a lap behind.

Rounding out a bumper weekend of sport for Britain was the stunning win of the British & Irish Lions over the Wallabies in the third and final Test of their series. It might not be all bad news for Australia, though, with coach Robbie Deans likely to be sacked after six years at the helm. Highly respected Queensland Reds coach Ewen McKenzie is favored to take his place.
