Watford v Wolves: What a comeback!

Tara Moore: Hold my beer

So, you may have heard about a certain football cup Semi Final that was keenly contested, resulting in Watford coming from two goals down to book a place in one of the most prestigious sporting competitions in the world. But if it is comebacks you are looking for, then you’ll do no better than at a small-ish tennis tournament two days later, as reported in the Guardian.

Here at FPR, we can be cynical at times. Maybe we’re going soft in our old age (of literally four days old) but we thought this story needed to be shared. Saving a Match Point to avoid a 6-0, 6-0 defeat and then going on to WIN the match is a triumph of epic – some might say fairy tale – proportions. Huge well-deserved congratulations to Tara Moore; hopefully this is the start of something big. We look forward to British media over-hyping your chances thus causing you to collapse under the pressure time and time again. Ah, there’s the cynicism.

Also, well done Watford. Please, PLEASE beat City in the final.
