I've noticed that Ferrer sometimes crumbles against the top 2 - I saw it against smugfed at 02 one year. But he certainly is no disgrace to the sport - an incredible fighter who has probably done more with his talents (which are nowhere near those of the other top players) than any other player.
Been listening to 5 Live. John Inverdale asked Andy a lovely question: '12 GS SFs, 6Fs, do you have any idea of how much pleasure you are bringing to the tennis public back home?' Andy replied with reference to feeling he let himself and the public down when he's not performed well in the big occasions.
An Ossie commentator said she thought there was more evidence of support for Andy than Nole around the grounds right now and lots of people queuing to get their faces painted with the saltire.
Andy spotted chatting to Agassi not long ago - hope Andre gave him a good pep talk. He's very positive about Andy even though he's tipping Nole to win partly because to beat both Fed and Nole is asking alot but everyone is emphasising how close it is. Indeed the NY Times guy refused to call it. He also said that globally he thought this is the golden era in tennis even if not from a US perspective. I feel so proud of Andy.
Now PREPARE, ATTACK, DESTROY
Ooh they are going to interview Andy's boys in about 15 mins they've just said
