    Enjoying your blog as always SG, I was so hoping you would do one but I didn't want to pester as i know you have a lot on your plate.

    Roy - please write a blog too. It's great for those of us not able to be there to read as many as possible.

    The only concession to the cold that I could see was that Hawkeye was wearing a woolly hat! I'm almost sure he was wearing a t-shirt under his warm jacket.....hardy, these Scottish laddies. First things first, he handed me my tickets and then we stood deciding what to do. Everything in front of us was shut tight. A couple strolled by and told us they had tried to get in but were told it was a closed court. Well, it's not in my nature to be put off so easily!! We could see a sloping walkway which seemed to lead to an area underneath the stadium so we walked over and starting downwards. There was a door with a security code box and a general press button. Hawkeye, reminding me of supergramps motioned that he'd stay back so I walked to the door and pressed. A voice answered asking could be help. I said "Yes, I think I need help". He then said 'Is it an emergency?" "A kind of emergency" I answered whereupon he said he would send someone down. Very quickly a young man opened the door. Thinking rapidly I said that I needed to speak to Jamie Murray. He looked at me and told me that only people with accreditation would be allowed in. Swallowing hard I looked him in the eye and said.......

    ......and said "I have accreditation, I'm Mrs Stewart-Jones"......... Thinking how ridiculous does that sound and he's now going to tell me to go I was astonished when he pointed to another door and told me to go through. Giving the nod to Hawkeye we went in. We were faced with a long fairly dim corridor reminiscent of backstage of a theatre or college gymnasium. On the left I was aware of a long table with a group of people sitting and papers in front of them. On the wall behind them were posters but they didn't register as I ignored everybody and set off walking down looking for doors.:: Hawkeye had decided to wait by the entrance! I couldn't see any doors so retraced my steps and suddenly spied an opening. Bingo! Completely unchallenged I went in and found myself in an ante-room where the first person I saw was Louis Cayer. He looked at me rather quizzically but smiled and then the doc walked past me and said hello. A chap approached me and asked if he could help me. I recognised him but don't know his name. I said that I would like to see Jamie and he told me to wait as just to the right were the changing rooms! He went through to get Jamie.
