confused  Is this for UK listeners only because this just brought up a story about the draw, no highlights.

I don't think from the listings that ITV is broadcasting Queens. As far as I can see it is just BBC2 and Eurosport. I'll really miss our Jim - super commentator and his comments regarding Andy are not only fair but very realistic.

There's a video at the top of the article, but as I assume it's embedded from BBC iPlayer, it won't be available outside of the UK unfortunately.

There are some highlights here though:

Thanks MH.  Great play from both players - I had forgotten just how close it was.  Good to see Andy coming to the net so often.

Thanks for the info MH - had wondered if it was any different from the highlights I'd posted at the start of the article.

Touch the sky - and touch it he did.

If Andy Roddick can give our guy some kudos, perhaps some doubters on here could too:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/tennis/article-2156970/Andy-Roddick-admits-2012-Wimbledon.html
indeed and I guess he groaned when he saw he was drawn to meet Andy again after he was toasted last year.  Always remember that point when he said keep it social to Andy.

This clip from Queens website sets out Andy's likely path for those who find text easier than navigating the draw itself

Wimbledon is what I care about baby!  Starts two weeks tomorrow!  And two weeks on Wednesday I'll be sat on Court No1!  I'm not hopefully to see Murray play on that court but I checked the schedule for the first Wednesday last year on court 1 and Murray played on it!!! You never know!  w00t

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Centre Court, 2nd Wednesday for me. If he makes the quarters, I should see him. Same tickets as last year. I saw Andy beat Lopez and Federer lose from two sets up on his favourite court.

Perfect day, really.

I've got Court 1 on the first Thursday - would love to see Andy but I know the chances are quite slim!

Chance of Andy on Court 1 2nd Round Katie!.For sure he won't be on Centre every time.  Hope you don't get someone like Berdych - yawn yawn!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Andy. Smile I was thinking that Berdych would be a likely player to put on court 1 - I'll enjoy whoever I see though would love to see one of my favourite players, especially Andy.
