It makes no sense to me either, it should be "You're" not "your" and "end of" not "end off" (short for end of story )
Thank you Colin.  That was my understanding what "end of" meant. Smile

Oh ffs... just got back from my camping and caught up on my tennis tapes to see unohoo won.
Do you also know that you're other fave (apart from Andy that is) Milos went out in R1 in Rome?  Beaten 7-6, 6-4 by Germany's Florian Mayer.  I understand Milos only managed to serve FOUR aces in the first set!  Obviously a bad day at the office.

Fit-again Murray has summer dream
Brit ready to rumble


The Brit arrives fresh at Foro Italico having decided to sit out in Madrid last week. A minor back injury was the official reason but Murray indicated he just wanted a rest – and who can blame him with a potential four months of top class tennis to get through.

...“I am pretty good,” he said. “I have taken 10 days off following Barcelona and I started training on Wednesday. I think the injury has fully cleared up – after six days it feels fine.

...“It was my decision to stop playing,” he said. “Everyone has been plodding on. People have been saying that I was much smarter than they were. Obviously the conditions were not ideal with the French Open just a couple of weeks away.

So now we have it straight from the horse's mouth.  Either Andy is playing the injury scare down, or that comment in italics makes complete BS of the "doctors' advice" statement which got everyone in such a lather.  Anyway we'll soon find out how much good his rest has done him come Tuesday (I think).

At least it's now known that Nalbandian's Qualifier opponent is Spain's 24 year old Albert Ramos, currently ranked No.39, and who, not surprisingly, is a clay-court specialist, but whose 4 wins to date on that surface have all been in Challengers.

Great that Andy is back his week, really looking forward to watching him in action again. Tough draw though so I think we should expect little and hopefully get a nice surprise if Andy reaches the semis again in the next couple of tournaments. If he managed to beat Ferrer in the quarters in Rome it would be a major step forward on the red dirt and I agree with the previous comments that we should be very happy if he manages to defend last years ranking points and move on to the grass in good shape. I really have a good feeling about Wimbledon / The Olympics, I think something BIG is going to happen for Andy this summer. cmon yeah

Also last year Andy had the advantage of having played in Madrid, even if it was only two matches.  Could be a bit under-cooked after recent lay-off.

Highlights of last year's SF against Djokovic - watch that amazing rally at 1:45 with Andy going up to the net!

End of!

If your trying to be hip Aileen... it's end off.

It makes no sense to me either, it should be "You're" not "your" and "end of" not "end off" (short for end of story )

I'm (I am) offended.

That's a tough second round match! Didn't realise they have an even H2H - chance of an upset win for Verdasco there.
