1st set was critical ....The longer the match went the more dominant Andy became. I dont think people were rediculous to have worries v Chardy. The guy was causing Andy alot of problems once he got going in that first set. As Andy stated pre match though...Chardy can be eratic...and thats what changed this match i think.

Improved performance from Murray.... but everyone knows he'll have to play better against Fed...his best id say.

Well done Andy!!!!

Excellent win. Smile Andy played a lot better today. Couldn't ask for more - reaching a slam semi with no sets dropped. He'll be well rested for the SF now.

So that's five matches, 15 sets won and none lost.

And in matches he's 9-0 for the year.

Must be doing something right!

I actually fancy Tsonga to trouble the Smug one later this morning.  I wouldn't be at all surprised if Jo edged it  That would be nice.  More French fodder for our man!

Just been on the AO website to watch highlights of Serena vs Sloane. I come across a video for Mats Point. I instantly knew Mats would criticise Murray, and how right was I. Mats Wilander is a twat.

Yeah it was. He hasn't face a single person in the Top 10 yet. Hahaha.

Not unusual I don't think.  If play always went with the seedings, the first time he would probably have faced a top tenner would have been in the quarters (although he could possibly have faced numbers 9 or 10 in the previous round, but more likely someone from numbers 11 to 16.)

Andy's potential top ten opponent in the quarters - DelPo - fell by the wayside though and left him with Chardy in the quarters.

This must be fairly common I would have thought.

I've never heard such psycho-babbling nonsense in my life.  He's a complete moron.  I don;t know why the TV network gives him a platform.

Just because he wasn't as good as Borg or Edberg, or even Lendl. He criticises Lendl's own. Cmon Ivan knock this baby out!

Well done Andy.  Chardy could have been tricky.  I missed the bit where it looked like Chardy was getting into the match and causing trouble but then enjoyed Andy taking the game out of him.  Some wonderful shots from Andy.  And such a relaxed post-match interview.  Like Andy I hope JW and smugfed slug it out for hours tonight so that night match ceases to be an advantage.  Better still hope jw wins but unlikely I guess.

Murray did very well and I had high hopes that he would meet Tsonga in the semis but sadly Federer won in 5. There's no justice in tennis

Chardy could have been awkward, but I must admit I had a feeling he probably wouldn't be too bad. I did think he might just nick a set, going in off the back of a good run through the tournament, given that it could have made him confident. I'm chuffed to be wrong on that one.

I saw the second set almost in its entirety and all of the third. From what I saw Andy's level has risen considerably, which is great. I still get the feeling that more is to come too. Hope I'm right about that one!

To my mind it isn't the dips, such as the one in the first set, which admittedly I heard about, I didn't see, that are important so much. It's how Andy responds when it happens. If he dipped in the past Andy might have got frustrated with himself. Now he might get momentarily annoyed, but then he regroups and gets on with it. I think that's hugely significant.

So, it's Smugfed in the semi's. I'm sorry in a way, because I'd have liked Tsonga to win that quarter. To my mind he deserved it for the vast majority of that match. However, I thought Smugfed might pull the win out of his - well, choose your own body part or accessory. Whistle. Tsonga kept him out there though, and made him work, so good one Jo  clap.

I still have a brilliant feeling about the AO. I love the idea of Andy being the only man in the tournament who is yet to drop a set! I don't care who he has played or how he has played either. As my brother reminded me earlier, you can only play the person in front of you and get that right.

Some nice stats mentioned during the match about Andy in slams too. I'm sure they said something about him having had more match wins than any other British player in history, or was it that if he wins the tournament he will be? I was still waking up when they said it lol.

Frew McMillan and vile Simon Reed in commentary today. Why can't Frew resist having a dig at Andy over DC. Andy, do me a favour, win the tournament and then tell Frew and the lot of them to get stuffed.
