Poor Andy's feet.

A brilliant weekend of tennis - started with the Murray Federer match and ended with a superb final of the Australian Open on Sunday morning. But I cannot get my mind off Andy Murray's dreadful blisters! We were treated to HD close-up shots of his bandaged toes and what looked like weeping sores.

Wouldn't you think a world class athlete by now, after twenty-something years of daily training and the best tailor-made trainers in the world, that one's feet would harden up to the point of NOT developing blisters? But alas not.

BBC Radio Berskhire's sportsman, Ady Williams, a former Reading player, says blisters are the bane of a footballer's life, too.

Room for new technology, methinks.
