BY COLIN VICKERY I was really happy to get the gig with Seven. I did 22 years of Wimbledon at Nine. I’m going to do a couple of matches at the Australian Open for Seven as well. You have had a couple of health scares over the years. Howare you tracking these days? The small stroke — a blood vessel on the left side of the brain — left me with minor damage. I couldn’t write with my right hand for four months, but that got better. I wasn’t left with any (permanent) damage. The face thing was unfortunate. The roots had gone an inch down my nose and an inch across my face. You can’t see it (the scar) now unless you look real close. I treat it as a little battle scar. Did those health scares change the way you live? The stroke did me a big favour because I was being a naughty boy. I had some bad habits; I was over indulging. I consider it the stroke I had to have. I have obeyed all the warnings and now I’m a good boy. I monitor my blood pressure and watch my cholesterol and have regular check-ups for little cancer things that come from being out in the sun too long. Whoare you predicting to win Wimbledon? I’m thinking Nadal. Obviously you can’t count out Federer and Djokovic. Federer is not comfortable against Nadal these days. Djokovic has had such an amazing six months. You wonder when he will go off the boil. The women’s event is wide open. You can’t say there’s a favourite. There are half a dozen women who could win. From June 20, Seven will broadcast Wimbledon live. During the first week the live broadcast begins at 9pm on 7TWO, and from 10pm on 7TWO during the second week. The coverage will then be on Channel 7 from 11pm each night.
