Don't think we're going to tire of talking about this any time soon     yay   and it's been great reading all the posts the last few days. Thought it might be an idea to have a separate thread for it .

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

How many times have I replayed that final point? As Djokovic's backhand strikes the net cord and falls, Andy simply drops his hat and racket - won't be needing those any more - there's a cough of dust from his shoes and he turns quickly to the press box and shakes his fists in rapture. It's the greatest moment of his life and one of my finest, too.

I don't know about anybody else but I keep coming in here just to look at that cup sitting glowing on the top right of the screen.  I'm still trying to convince myself that it all actually happened ... still hasn't properly sunk in yet, 2 days later!

I think something I particularly loved about the Wimbledon win was what Grabcopy remarked on - the expression on Andy's face in the moment it occurred, and how it differed from the US Open.  With the latter, there was a sense of overwhelming relief - it finally happened - and exhaustion - the relief so powerful that it appeared to drown out everything else.  What I'd hoped for with a Wimbledon win, though - and what I think it's obvious that we got - was that moment of pure unadulterated joy as the realisation hit that he'd done it.  I've never seen him look so completely happy before - and I felt the same. 

With the US Open, I was elated at his win, but there was still that niggle at the back of your mind that Wimbledon was there and still to be attained.  I didn't feel the same about the Aussie Open or Roland Garros - Wimbledon was the Holy Grail.  But with the Wimbledon win - I may have cried when he won the US Open, but it was nothing compared to the great gasping ugly sobs I broke into when he dropped his racquet on the ground and roared at the crowd.  I'm not sure I've ever felt such a rush of emotion in my life - pure, positive, giddy happiness that was this incredible release.  When Andy was on his knees crying into the ground I was pretty much right there with him.

I'll never, ever forget it.  I feel privileged to be a part of it all and share the moment with so many others - and so excited about what the future will bring, because whatever it does, I know it will be incredible.  Andy made me believe that dreams could come true on Sunday.

Murray has always been a better player than Federer and Nadal, Federer got some easy Slam finals and Nadal is a one surface man, justice in tennis is restored.

There's an interesting discussion going on at MTF about whether Andy has eclipsed Hewitt yet.

1990-2001 - Sampras- Agassi era
2003 - start of Federer era

Remind me when Welsh-boy Lleyton won his titles?

But seriously Nigel, I understand why you're laughing because Hewitt isn't exactly an ideal comparison because he was sort of the man in between. He got the credit from the era that had 0 consistent front-runners, so I'm not angry at you for laughing at it lol.

Also, just 2 Masters titles. Masters are a good barometer of quality.
