Sky Sports News still don't know Federer won... I thought they broadcast LIVE!

Also I find it cool how the top 4 seeds are the last 4 left to play Smile. 4 Berdych 3 Murray 2 Djokovic 1 Smugfed. Not bad all of those guys keeper up to their expectations.

I really want Andy to keep that winning H2H. Betting odds at he moment are complete evens.

Put up a poll OP. I'm gonna think about it for a bit then make a prediction, this is a difficult one though a lot to access.

Officially there's three : Lucas Arnold Ker beat Federer in his first professional match in 1998.

Nadal has a winning record against all the good players. Ask nearly any player on tour the player they would least want to play and most say Nadal not Federer. That's one of the statistics that makes me consider him the best of all.

I can put myself through the wringer watching Andy's matches, but for some reason I just can never bring myself to predict his matches. The only time I have was for the USO (to win of course!)

Here's Andy's post match interview. Talks about today's match, his girlfriend's birthday, and his upcoming match with Fed.

A little misleading if you consider his Clay domination. That makes him the greatest Clay courter of all time for sure, but the greatest player ever? Hmm, no.

Silver Lining, are you a 'closet Fed fan' by any chance?

I quite like these stats to show performance against the top players.

It's also one of my favourite Andy stats : ranked above Djokovic and 8th on the open era all time list!

Hard to be confident given that Murray has an illness.

Hoping for a competitive match. Andy will take huge confidence from that Olympic final.

I voted Federer in 3, although I did think about 2 for a while. I just don't think Andy at 90% will be able to beat Federer.

I wish we knew what illness he had, then it would be a little easier to predict when he'd be in full health. I'm guessing it's a virus/cold, which usually is about 5-7 day recovery.
