They're back!

The London Olympics are getting close now!  The tennis players are arriving at Wimbledon and beginning their practices.  Local hero Andy Murray got the opportunity to carry the torch today:

I'm sure that was a special moment for him.   He then got to pass the torch to Venus Williams, which has to be a triumphant moment for her with all she has been through!  

Here is a picture of friends-rivals Novak Djokovic with Murray, who both have to feel their medal chances are pretty good:

And, of course, Roger Federer is back at his beloved Wimbledon grounds, looking pretty hot in more ways than one:
It was announced today that although Federer had been granted the privilege of carrying the Olympic flag for Switzerland for the third time, he deferred this time, wanting another athlete to have the opportunity (isn't he a sweet guy?!!).  How awesome that the honor was given to his good friend and gold medal partner Stan Wawrinka!!

And I can't let the day go by without saying happy 3rd birthday to sweet Myla and Charlene!  Amazing it has been three years already since the exciting news was announced that Roger and Mirka had not one, but two new babies!  I'm sure they have some special plans for their little girls today.  It won't be long before they're old enough to actually sit and watch Daddy's matches in the player box.
