Andy and Nole's match 2nd night match on Ashe, as expected.
Oh damn! I guess that could mean around 1:30-2am here. I know I'm a bit of a night owl, but I don't like having my nerves shaken up at that time!
She could barely walk. Probably going to lose tomorrow now.
I'm not wishing injuries on Serena or anyone else, but a quick match would be very acceptable, so maybe around 1:30?
As for the match itself, I really don't know which way to go here, nor even predict the length of the match. In fact for the first time that I can remember I've gone for the comedy option.
Andy certainly looked like a man on a mission against Tsonga, but I'm not sure if he's quite up there yet. Yes, he's well on the way back to top form, of that there's no doubt, and he's said himself that he's very close to playing his best tennis. On the other hand, and I admit I haven't seen Djoko play here, but how far will his focus be on the match given the circumstances of his personal life? One positive though is that Andy tends to play better later in the day than he does earlier because, like me, he isn't a 'morning' person by nature.
To be honest I'm not as worried about this match as I was about the Tsonga one because Andy desperately needed that win. I just want him to go out there and give of his best and if wins I'll be very happy, and if he loses I'll be disappointed although I certainly won't be too downhearted. As @Hamish
says, he's done remarkably well this year, all things considered, but I think we need to be patient a little longer and that hopefully 2015 will be a really good year for him.
