But Andy often does surprisingly bad in men's doubles for some reason :P

Yeah, I only just managed to sort my sleeping patterns out. Now I have to mess them all up again, damn you Andy and your unmissable tennis.

Why not record it and watch it when you wake up ?

That's what I would do Philip, except it's not going to be televised here. So it's back to the alarm clock, tripping over the dog in the dark, and poxy dodgy streams for me.
It's a terrible curse being a Murray maniac. Very Happy

We need to look out for Berdych. He won all 3 rubbers at the DC against Argentina just 2 weeks ago and is 8-0 this year in the DC. This will make him mentally tough. Andy will need to be at his best to put away Berdych.

That's a shame.  I rely on YouTube to watch matches. I only had time to watch Andy USO final this week-end. I am watching it the second time as I type this Smile

I've just watched it twice. Second time's less stressful, but you should skip sets 3 & 4 and f/fwd to the 5th. Smile

Thanks.

The great thing about knowing the result in advance is that I can enjoy the tennis played by both and analyse their strengths and weaknesses. I notice that in both 3rd and 4th sets, Andy had chances to break back so he could have won in 4 had a few vital points went his way.  What is very noticeable is Andy FH has become more powerful and much more consistent. Andy now has the mental fortitude to go for his FH shots at crunch time. Lendl has done wonders with Andy FH technique and mental strength.

It's never the same as a live sporting match, knowing the result has happened etc

True but there are advantages too. During Andy USO final, I went to sleep at midnight with Andy leading by 2 sets to love (BBC livescore) thinking Andy would win in 3 or 4. When I woke up at 4 a.m., Andy just won in 5 and I was spared the anguish lol

Of course, it's not certain that Berdych wiill make it to the final.
