Let's all start breathing again.
You mean you haven't been breathing since Friday? unsure

You beat me to it dex, I was going to s :w00t:ay that Wil-Jo was beaten today Hass, if this had been Andy he would have been written off and Lendl told to take his walking papers. These results happen it is not the end of the world or the end of the losers career.
I really do feel that Andy will do very well in the next clay courts, and given a decent draw he could come out the winner of RG. w00t
. I like your thinking Michelle, and Dex , Go Andy.  Very Happy

I was there and the weirdest thing was hearing the announcement that play would not resume until the following day.  We trudged off Centre Court hugely disappointed and wondering why on earth that decision had been made as the rain had stopped and it was the most beautiful sunny Friday evening.
 
Unless there are factors we do not know about this has to go down as one of the dumbest decisions ever.  Tim Henman was on fire that day, his movement was extraordinary and his momentum was at fever pitch.

The rest is history, Goran seized his opportunity the next day and went on to achieve his dream.  But those of us who were there in the cauldron and fervour of the world's most famous tennis arena knew that the history books could so easily have told a different story. 

Such are the quirks and humanities of tennis, things don't always go according to plan or turn out the way they should - that's why we love the sport.  And particularly Andy Murray.  He somehow encapsulates all of the qualities I just can't resist.  So much talent, so many highs and just enough lows to make him vulnerable.  When he is serving great and moving well he is the most exciting player ever.  Even when he isn't we hold our breath and wait for him to switch to genius mode and turn things round. 

I was there too Clementine and also couldnt work out why it was stopped. As I have said before on here though Alan Mills has since admitted he made the decision (and it was probably the wrong one) so I just blame him. Think how much less pressure Andy would have if Tim had gone on to win it. So by the powers of deduction the reason Andy hasnt won a slam if all down to Alan Mills!!  LOL
