Wimbledon Blogger Forced to Tennis-Blog For Ten Hours


An exhausted liveblogger was just forced to blog for ten hours. Xan Brooks, of the Guardian, was barely keeping it together.

“9.10pm: Is it over? It is not over. For a brief moment back then, I thought it was over.”

“8.40pm: It’s 56 games all and darkness is falling. This, needless to say, is not a good development, because everybody knows that zombies like the dark.”

“8.20pm: Wow, is that really the time? I must go home; can’t think what’s kept me. Wa-ha-la-ha-la-ha-la!”

Good news though! Liveblogging was finally canceled due to darkness. Bad news: there’ll be more tomorrow.
