This is a higher quality match than Murray's was. Tsonga might be pretty hard for Andy to beat.

Tsonga might well be tougher indoors, but Djokovic put him away handily enough. I fully expect Andy would do the same to be honest. Tsonga can be awkward, but at the moment he just doesn't have 'it' over those at the top.

Personally I didn't think Andy's match was lower quality. Andy wasn't his best in the first set, that's true, but once he got the break in the second he lifted his game significantly and was the dominant player. The match up with Berdych was bound to be a close one, Andy has struggled with him at times. That's why I think it's good that Andy has now leveled their head to head record, and, more significantly, beaten him three times this year.

Today's match was my biggest concern of the group.  I'm not assuming Djokovic is an easy win, but I felt he needed the win today to ensure (just about) getting out of the RR phase.  Assuming it is Nole and Andy going through, I'm not sure it matters who is in first or second position, other than getting extra points.

My other concern is that loads of Brits would not grasp that Berdych is a good, and tricky player, so would act like a loss was a national embarrassment.

I disagree. I thought Djokovic looked out of sorts. And Tsonga failed to take his chances. But that doesn't mean he won't still be a challenge for Andy. Both of them for that matter.

Nole did look out of sorts, but once again we saw that incredible winning mentality that made him raise his game at just the right moment.
Tsonga is a front runner and kind of gave up at that point. Rolling Eyes
This is gonna be close.  Fingers crossed

He has gotta win that one because the match against Nole would obviously be very difficult to win..

Crikey, that puts everything into perspective really. I'm sorry to hear about that, but at the same time, her reaction to the chemo must be heartening. Smile

Curtis71: Every sympathy and encouragement to you both. My brother is recovering from chemo and radiotherapy for throat cancer in Australia and we have had daily phone calls during his treatment. I know what it involves therefore. I also know that a great many cases are completely curable. All good wishes - if you both need cheering there are many on here who will be happy to help - it's a caring, argumentative, Andy-mad forum so come and join in.

My thoughts are with you in this. My young niece, at 33, is currently undergoing chemo for breast cancer and needs radiotherapy. When they found the cancer they also discovered that she was pregnant. They had to wait until she was twelve weeks pregnant for her to start chemo, because at that point it would pose less of a risk for the baby. The baby was born, by c-section just a few weeks early on the 1st November. She's a pretty good weight and doing well. She needed to be born a little early so that my niece could complete her treatment. Fortunately my niece is doing well, and I hope all goes well for you and your wife.

My niece has aunts on her mother's side as well, one of which was diagnosed with breast cancer just a little while before her. She's just 49. In her case her prognosis is very bad. She's just been told she is terminally ill. It's heartbreaking, but thank God for the instances like my niece and your wife. I hope she continues to do well. My thoughts and prayers will be with you both. Hopefully next year you will get to see Andy.
