    I can't see things panning out any other way. He has so few points to defend over the coming months that he's bound to overtake Henman. Mind you, I suspect Big Greg hasn't got many to defend either, so you never know.

    Yep, I don't think his forst big points came until Queens and Wimbledon last year.

    Not sure about Greg though...he seems not to have played nor won much for the last year or two but remained pretty constant in the rankings as far as I remember....

    Aye, he had a very slow comeback following that drugs business. He's sitting just above Murray at the minute.

    You could well be right come to think of it. Still, he's looking odds on to at least come close to a Wimbledon seeding.

    Steven Bradbury. Classic moment, and now rivals the silly Yank in the Women's Snowboard Cross who decided to do a grab on the last jump when she was miles ahead, and fell over on landing, handing the race to a very shocked Swede !

    I know what is more boring...a person who cannot appreciate the excitement created in a bowls or curling match or a person who feels both are boring.

    Don't you know that both bowls and curling are the best sports ever....maybe it's just me who thinks that as I feel they are the only sports I would actually be able to physically play without getting exhausted

    But bowls aren't an Olympic sport...but wait until the Commonwealths next month...the bowls competitions will probably be full of UK based pairs.

    I hadn't seen much curling before, but I watched the US vs. UK in the Olympics the other day and I thought it was really interesting. I'd like to try it myself, but there are no curling clubs near me

    noone believes u coz ur chattin our ur ass pal. thats ridiculas.

    the 400m world record is owned by Michael Johnson form the USA and stands at 43.18 seconds. and i very VERY much doubt u will be able to outrun him as he also holds the 200m world record of 19.32 seconds.

    if you are a runner or not it still is a pile of bull sh*t as far as im concerned. if you had ran Olympic qualifying times on a treadmill i would say it is becaus you are lifting your body higher than average which means you are doing less stepds but the belt of the treadmill is still spinning at a certain rate even tho you may not be.

    You're right he was more of a skiddy bowler...though Wasim is Wasim...

    Waqar was the more hit-the-deck style of bowler.
