Andy played well for the two sets then he seemed to lose his momentum. Played well we can't win them all. Life goes on. I am sure he will not be disappointed with his prize money.
It's not the money though, it's the title that Andy wanted.
I'm sure he will be disappointed, but he knows now that he has moved up in stature, if not quite yet in the rankings, to effectively two in the world. That is huge for Andy, for the game as a whole, to know that there has been a shift away from Federer et al, and for British tennis in particular.
Seriously, effectively two in the world, brilliant, and ours. As a Brit I'm enormously proud of Andy, and today doesn't change that one bit.
I don't know about the other matches just yet, but I am going to get the DVD of Andy beating Federer in the semi's. It was superb, not just because of who Andy beat, but the way he did it. A class act our Andy.
