But only because Murray missed the French Open. Hardly a fair comparison, is it?

If we look at points won compared to tournaments played, Murray is (well) ahead (351 - 291).

If we look at win to loss ratio, Murray is (well) ahead (5.4 - 3.3).

Ferrer is ahead in the race because he's played FIVE more tournaments, including a Slam.

This is what I argued. Unfortunately some people can't see the bigger picture.

If we're honest, Murray has hardly played this year. All in all, it's astonishing that he's world number two and on course for London.

If you ask me it tells you how good he is.

Is it me or is Sue Barker being really supportive of Andy this year? I think it's quite noticeable how she has got behind him. Nice to see it.

Federer's draw is getting easier and easier.

So is Andy's to be fair. There's a tendency to say the draws don't matter (you have to "beat the best to be the best") but that's complete bunkum as far as I'm concerned. Cilic and Tsonga both pulling out is a big slice of luck whichever way you look at it.

I think she's always been supportive and has a massive soft spot for him. I think he makes us more mature ladies feel maternal and protective.  There's always been a vulnerability about him, from day one.  tender

The most important thing about the draw is that a player, any player, is able to take advantage of it. It's all very well having a fairly easy draw, but if a player then takes their foot off the gas, they can still find themselves in trouble. I suspect Andy will stay as focused on the task whoever he faces in the rounds ahead.

It is wierd though, it feels to me like all the draws for the 'big three' have come much more in to line than some might have expected, or am I imagining that?

I was sorry to see JWT go out. I like Jo, and to be honest I think Andy would have beaten him anyway.

Is it possible for someone to do a bit of a recap on Andy's draw, looking at the rest of his potential opponents? With all the withdrawals I've lost track.

I don't know, I think at times she's been very much in the pro-Fed camp. This year I sense something different - maybe as a result of last year.

It would be nice if she'd stop making him cry though!

Andy is always very respectful of the opponent he is playing (unlike some I can mention Hmmmmm) he appears to be extremely focused this slam which is great to see.  His tennis has never been in doubt but he really is the complete package now.  But not getting carried away one match at a time.

Nah - I think she's just been doing her job, and trying to be professional re Fed.

She was very good in the Documentary in the way she handled it.  Seems like a really empathetic person.

If Federer gets knocked out here (massive massive if, but just for fun), the potential semi-final opponent would be one of:

Kubot
Paire
Mannarino
Brown
Almagro
Janowicz
Melzer
Stakhovsky

I'd want JJ gone, just to be on the safe side. His game is an odd one.
