anyone know what time the final is in uk time please or should i say gmt
8:30 am GMT (9:30 am BST)


Delighted to see SmugFed thrashed after his disgraceful gamesmanship.  How are the mighty fallen!  He only prolonged the inevitable with his first lot of histrionics. We're seeing a new Andy these days.  Yes there will still be wobbles along the road (take the Raonic match as an example), but now that Andy's got his head sorted out they should be easier for him to deal with.

A perfect example of how to annihilate SmugFed in two sets ignoring his attempts at gamesmanship and delay along the way. He chewed him up and Spat hm out - Gold Medal Andy emerged again to day and what a match it was.

And to think most people thought Fed would win :p
I plead quilty and happily so.  I really did think after yesterday Andy would struggle today.
Hee hee I bet smugfed regrets his decision to come to Shanghai after all even if it does get him some ranking points.  Let him slink back to Basel with his tail between his legs.

No, he was just outplayed.

Murray allowed it to affect him but Federer was also in top form in those latter two sets, credit where it's due.

I truly believe, Andy will never fear Fed again. He has laid him to rest forever. Also, any small shred of respect I may have had for Fed, totally evaporated along with that first few drops of rain! Some people call it gamesmanship........I call it cheating! Shame on him!

The poster asked for GMT, that's why I gave 8:30 am.  Thought maybe she lived abroad, but have just noticed she doesn't.

ah fair enough Aileen -perhaps she thought the clocks had already gone back!   
Yes smugfed was absolutely disgraceful when those few drops of rain fell. Showed himself up in his true colours.  So proud of Andy he just didn't let it get to him.  Ditto when he had to come out and serve for the match after the delay - doing the same while Nole had medical timeout at USO will have helped with that one no doubt.  Whistle

I agree Murray let the delay affect him, but would Federer have been in top form had the match continued without interruption?  He doesn't have quite the same physical stamina he used to have.  As it was he had a nice rest and a chat with his coach and came back out a different player.  Andy on the other hand was lost. 

Anyway Andy learnt a lot from that loss, and gained a lot of new supporters as well, so on that level it was a blessing in disguise.
