I haven't voted yet, but I'm going for Andy in five.

Djokovic had an easy win against Ferrer, but there is just no way Andy is going to play Djokovic like that. Ferrer seemed to be going for an approach that was essentially 'you stand there and I'll serve straight to you, and then you can stand on the baseline and hit a winner, okay?' Andy will be able to move Djokovic around much, much more.

I wonder how much time altogether Djokovic has spent on court? I know for Andy it's something like 13 hours altogether, which seems pretty good going into the final of a major. I have a feeling Djokovic will have spent longer out there, given that he was taken to five in five hours by Wawrinka, and  then four, although it was a fairly quick affair, by Berdych. I don't really question the time Djokovic has spent on court, but whether the stress of that long match with Wawrinka will come out against Andy and wear Djokovic down a bit. If the Wawrinka match had been a semi I would think not funnily enough, but it seems as if Djokovic could have less in the tank by the time the final comes around than Andy, because of the emotion he had to use to get passed Wawrinka, and then the matches that followed, which I realise were simple by comparison, but still had to be won. We'll see.

Andy, to my mind, is going to go into the final off the back of what has to be a huge win for him. It feels hugely important. I'm sure there is a danger of that wearing him down, but I think it will drive him on.

I don't know, it's speculation I suppose, but Andy just has a look about him to me. Given the nature of what he did against Federer today you would think he would have celebrated the win more, but not a bit of it. Apart from his usual things he was very calm. I just get the feeling he knows the job isn't done yet and it won't be until he lifts that trophy.
