This Vasselin should be smooth sailing for Andy. 

He has not a very fast top spin forehand, doesn't want to run too much, Ok serve and no major weapon to hurt Andy.  Should win this in straight sets Smile

Okay folks, I'm off to bed, just hope I can sleep before its time for the match.

Good night all of you in the southern hemisphere and across the pond. zz

I'm hoping  for an easier ride this time round, a win in 3. I've got to have a root canal done first thing tomorrow morning- which is less excruciating, root canal or Andy match? H'mmmmm..... :-)

I think we're OK. Andy loves thrashing Frenchmen and he could play them all the way up to the semis.

Andy does have an excellent record against French opponents yes

offtopic
I hope the Mods take note of AK400's latest irrelevant FEDERER posting, 12.22 today.
Responding quickly to Grabcopy post, 12.20 here is yet another example of completely off topic pro-Federer and anti-Murray bile. , which is not related whatsover to Grabcopys posting.

"Roger loves thrashing Andy's in majors but you are only as good as your last match"

then this:
"But this is Murray;s match thread so you need to say on topic Grabcopy" ;-)

and again:
"That is Rafa's opinion so that's up to him as Roger said the other day "when Rafa first came on tour he just said I agree with Roger to everything, now he seems to have grown up and is starting to form his own opinions which is great".

Getting back on topic, Murray volleyed well in his first match that would be a very good play for him here just to help him get through the match in a clinical fashion!"


thread hijacked This guy has to bring FEDERER into every conceivable discussion.

He was away for a day, and I started to enjoy the discussions once again.... but my heart sank just now, he's back to the same old FEDERER this and ROGER that.

He's continually taking the p*ss out of the Mods and being patronising to other members.



He's a T W A T of the highest order yes

I to your judgement, Philip.  Andy will have his tactics worked out but he might just find the 1st set a little tricky until he gets used to the Vaseline Man's game.  It's one thing watching someone play, quite another actually playing them.  I may have said this already, but Andy will not be wanting to waste too much energy here.  He's going to need all his reserves for bigger tasks ahead.  Luckily the weather is going to be a lot cooler than it was on Tuesday.  According to the AO website it's a mere 21C (70F) at the moment.

I'm also looking forward to hearing the Andy Boys again.  They're brilliant, and I was very pleased that Eurosport had a camera focussed on them for several seconds during the Harrison match.

Hi to my fellow Andy supporters and purveyors of this fine, funny, friendly and factual forum.. wave
Just caught up on this thread and see that akwhatsit has been dipping their toe into our Murray bath to test the temperature.. and I'm proud of you all for keeping the water relatively Baltic.
If I could just make a wee suggestion.. when I see ak's posts have been re-quoted, it means this person's comments fill the thread yet again.
I'm onto this poster's game.
Now.. about Andy... I am scared, excited and just darned exhausted with this time-difference..! zz But I'll try my very best to stay awake.

Tsonga just took second set 6-4 to go 2-0 up.  The way things are going - and I can't see the women's match which follows taking very long - Andy could be on court by 5.30 am.

Thankfully I'm a bit of a night bird by nature - but even so I'm off to bed for a couple of hours!

The Navarro vs Kvitova match  is now underway on Hisense, so another 1 and half hrs at least before the big one, I should guess.
