You think so? Mmmm. I know he got to the Wimbles final in 2010, but has he done much since. He was awful at the Olympics and Wimbles last year, really awful. Of course, his form can come and go, so he's tough to predict.
I just think Andy is better than Berdych on the grass. Whereas on clay Berdych is a pain, I'd fancy Andy in a clash on grass.
Well, Berdych had his annual first round loss in a slam at the French this year, so should last a few at Wimbledon, but still no guarantees. If he gets to the stage where he plays Andy, he's playing well, but the same will go for Andy. Berdych seemed to be suggesting that he was keen to play at Queens as he wants the best possible practice for Wimbledon, so it sounds as if he's keen to take it seriously this year.
Obviously, Andy will want to win Queens, and despite some decent competition, it should be his for the taking, but it is possible he'll not be playing at 100% from the get go. That should be enough to see him through a few rounds, but there's definitely a few in the draw who could do some damage.
There shouldn't be too much pressure on Andy this year. Apart from coming back from injury and everyone being delighted he's in the draw, he can't do worse than last year! Even if he does terribly, the doom and gloom merchants can't take anything from it, as he did so well at Wimbledon, lol.
Does anyone know if Delpo has confirmed he's over his bug? If he's taking part, he'd probably want to be travelling around about now.
